THE LESSONS
Knowledge 4:16 – 5:8 (NRSV)

The righteous who’ve died will condemn the ungodly who’re residing,
and youth that’s shortly perfected will condemn the extended outdated age of the unrighteous.
For they’ll see the tip of the smart,
and won’t perceive what the Lord purposed for them,
and for what he saved them secure.
The unrighteous will see, and may have contempt for them,
however the Lord will snort them to scorn.
After this they’ll grow to be dishonored corpses,
and an outrage among the many lifeless ceaselessly;
as a result of he’ll sprint them speechless to the bottom,
and shake them from the foundations;
they are going to be left totally dry and barren,
and they’re going to endure anguish,
and the reminiscence of them will perish.

They may include dread when their sins are reckoned up,
and their lawless deeds will convict them to their face.
Then the righteous will stand with nice confidence
within the presence of those that have oppressed them
and those that make mild of their labors.
When the unrighteous see them,
they are going to be shaken with dreadful concern,
and they are going to be amazed on the surprising salvation of the righteous.
They may converse to at least one one other in repentance,
and in anguish of spirit they’ll groan, and say,
“These are individuals whom we as soon as held in derision
and made a byword of reproach—fools that we have been!
We thought that their lives have been insanity
and that their finish was with out honor.
Why have they been numbered among the many kids of God?
And why is their lot among the many saints?
So it was we who strayed from the best way of fact,
and the sunshine of righteousness didn’t shine on us,
and the solar didn’t rise upon us.
We took our fill of the paths of lawlessness and destruction,
and we journeyed by trackless deserts,
however the best way of the Lord we have now not recognized.
What has our vanity profited us?
And what good has our boasted wealth introduced us?”
