35 I’ve already seen this happen.
Once I saw a wicked and violent man
overpower all who were around him,
a domineering tyrant with his pride and oppressive ways.
36 Then he died and was forgotten.

What a different story with them!
The godly ones will have a peaceful, prosperous future
with a happy ending.

    a future awaits those who seek peace.[a](E)
