The godly man has perished out of the earth, and there is no one upright among men. They all lie in wait for blood; every man hunts his brother with a net.
The righteous perishes, and no man lays it to heart; and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil [to come].
I am like one who is a joke to his neighbor, I, who called on God, and he answered. The just, the blameless man is a joke.
There is a vanity which is done on the earth, that there are righteous men to whom it happens according to the work of the wicked. Again, there are wicked men to whom it happens according to the work of the righteous. I said that this also is vanity.
All this have I seen in my days of vanity: there is a righteous man who perishes in his righteousness, and there is a wicked man who lives long in his evildoing.
He enters into peace; they rest in their beds, each one who walks in his uprightness.
You have condemned, you have murdered the righteous one. He doesn't resist you.
