Wisdom of Solomon

4:7-15

A righteous man, although he come to death, shall be in rest. For an honourable man, old age is not that of a long time, nor counted by the number of years; but seniority is the wisdom of a man, and the fulness of years is a spotless life. Having been pleasing unto God, he is beloved; andliving among sinners he is transalted to bliss. He is carried away, lest wickedness should alter his understanding, or deceit mislead his soul. For the malice of evil obscureth good things, and the smouldering of passions doth undermine the innocent mind. Though he pass away in a short time, yet he hath the fulness of many years; For his soul hath been pleasing unto the Lord, and therefore he was hastened from among the wicked. And the people see this, but understand it not; neither do they keep it in their minds: That there is grace and mercy for His Saints, and visitation for His chosen ones.
