When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
The wicked is driven away in his wickedness: but the righteous hath hope in his death.
The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.
Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the hypocrite's hope shall perish:
Whose hope shall be cut off, and whose trust shall be a spider's web.
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.
His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish.
Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.
And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?
