Sirach 41:4
This is the Lord’s judgment for all beings: Why should you reject the good pleasure of the Most High? Whether ten or one hundred or one thousand years, there’s no arguing about life in the grave.
Who is in a decrepit age, and that is in care about all things, and to the distrustful that loseth patience!
The Lord has decreed it for every living creature. Who are you to object to what the Most High wishes? In the world of the dead no one will care whether you lived ten years, a hundred, or a thousand.
This decree for all flesh is from God; why then should you reject a law of the Most High? Whether one has lived a thousand years, a hundred, or ten, in Sheol there are no arguments about life.
This is the Lord’s decree for all flesh; why then should you reject the will of the Most High? Whether life lasts for ten years or a hundred or a thousand, there are no questions asked in Hades.

And those things that shall come on (or after) thee in the good pleasance (or through the good pleasure) of the Highest; whether ten years, either an hundred, either a thousand. For why none accusing (or excusing) of life is in hell (or in the grave), that is, no man may excuse him(self) there, in alleging (the) goodness of (his) life. [And that shall overcome to thee in the well-pleased thing of the Highest; whether ten, or an hundred, or a thousand years. Forsooth there is not in hell accusing (or excusing) of life.]
