Although Evil Is Not Punished Swiftly, God Does Eventually Punish Sinners

11 Because now that evil works are not hastily punished, the heart of man giveth himself over unto wickedness. 12 But though an evil person offend a hundredth times, and have a long life: yet am I sure, that it shall go well with them that fear God, because they have him before their eyes. 13 Again, as for the ungodly, it shall not be well with him, neither shall he prolong his days: but even as a shadow, so shall he be that feareth not God.
