Bible: Ecclesiastes 8:12-13

8:12 Even though a sinner might commit a hundred crimes 1  and still live a long time, 2 

yet I know that it will go well with God-fearing people 3  – for they stand in fear 4  before him.

8:13 But it will not go well with the wicked,

nor will they 5  prolong their 6  days like a shadow, 7 

because they 8  do not stand in fear 9  before God.
