Those Who Fear God Will Do Well

Ecclesiastes 8

10 Then I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of holiness, and they were j forgotten 1 in the city where they had so done. This also is vanity. 11 k Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil. 12 l Though a sinner does evil a hundred times, and his days are prolonged, yet I surely know that m it will be well with those who fear God, who fear before Him. 13 But it will not be well with the wicked; nor will he prolong his days, which are as a shadow, because he does not fear before God.
