{24:26} Evil words are for evil men, and evil men are [subjected] to evil words. And good words are for good men, and good men are [an object] of good words. Those [good people] are declared innocent of what the slanderers say. For them is forgiveness and noble provision.

Limiting the word الخبيثات to refer to words is an interpretation. It can refer to wicked women as well, which is linguistically valid. So, I suggest,
{24:26} Wicked [women or things] are for wicked men, and wicked men are for wicked [women or things]. And good [women or things] are for good men and good men are for good [women or things]. Those are absolved of what they (the slanderers) say; for them is forgiveness and noble provision.
