When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish; and the hope of evil men perisheth.
The desire of the righteous is only good; the expectation of the wicked is wrath.
Let no one deceive you with vain words, for on account of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
The hope of the righteous is joy; but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
Hast thou seen a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope of a fool than of him.
Hast thou seen a man hasty in his words? there is more hope of a fool than of him.
1 Timothy 6:17
Enjoin on those rich in the present age not to be high-minded, nor to trust on the uncertainty of riches; but in the God who affords us all things richly for our enjoyment;
So are the paths of all that forget God; and the profane man's hope shall perish,
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and all refuge shall vanish from them, and their hope shall be the breathing out of life.
For what is the hope of the ungodly, when God cutteth him off, when +God taketh away his soul?
He saith in his heart, I shall not be moved; from generation to generation I shall be in no adversity.
For I expected good, and there came evil; and I waited for light, but there came darkness.
Peace is looked for, and there is no good; a time of healing, and behold, terror.
The horse is a vain thing for safety; neither doth he deliver by his great power.
Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they lead you to vanity; they speak a vision of their own heart, not out of the mouth of Jehovah.
