When a wicked man dies, hope perishes, and expectation of power comes to nothing.
The desire of the righteous is only good. The expectation of the wicked is wrath.
Let no one deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of God comes on the children of disobedience.
The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hope of the wicked will perish.
Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
Do you see a man who is hasty in his words? There is more hope for a fool than for him.
1 Timothy 6:17
Charge those who are rich in this present world that they not be haughty, nor have their hope set on the uncertainty of riches, but on the living God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy;
So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the godless man shall perish,
But the eyes of the wicked shall fail. They shall have no way to flee. Their hope shall be the giving up of the spirit."
For what is the hope of the godless, when he is cut off, when God takes away his life?
He says in his heart, "I shall not be shaken. For generations I shall have no trouble."
When I looked for good, then evil came; When I waited for light, there came darkness.
We looked for peace, but no good came; [and] for a time of healing, and behold, dismay!
A horse is a vain thing for safety, neither does he deliver any by his great power.
Thus says Yahweh of Armies, Don't listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you: they teach you vanity; they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of Yahweh.
