The wicked.

[Jesus] Who gave himself as a ransom for many. 2 Timothy 2:6

The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. Mark 10:45, Matthew 20:28


The ransom of a man's life are his riches. Proverbs 13:8
(Seems like this applies to everyone, including the righteous.)

No one and nothing, since there are no righteous people.

What is man, that he should be clean? and he which is born of a woman, that he should be righteous? Job 15:14

Who hath declared from the beginning, that we may know? and beforetime, that we may say, He is righteous? yea, there is none that sheweth, yea, there is none that declareth, yea, there is none that heareth your words. Isaiah 41:26

We are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. Isaiah 64:6
