The Wicked Driven Away

"The wicked is driven away in his wickedness; but the righteous hath hope in his death."—Prov. 14:32.

Solomon had not the most remote reference to post mortem suffering in this language. What he meant to say was that when the wicked is driven away to death in his wickedness, the righteous has hope. He expresses the same idea when he says: "I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive."—Ecc. 4:2. When the wicked die in their wickedness, the righteous have hope even in their death, is what Solomon says in this language.
