Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading like a green tree in its native soil:
The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but my words shall in no wise pass away.
and the rich in his humiliation, because as the grass's flower he will pass away.
Or as a hidden untimely birth I had not been; as infants that have not seen the light.
If a man beget a hundred sons, and live many years, so that the days of his years be many, but his soul be not filled with good, and also he have no burial, I say an untimely birth is better than he.
I should be as though I had not been; I should have been carried from the womb to the grave.
