Wisdom 4:17
People will see the death of the wise, but they won’t understand the Lord’s purposes for them, nor to what end the Lord kept them safe.
For they shall see the end of the wise man, and shall not understand what God hath designed for him, and why the Lord hath set him in safety.
The wise may die young, but the wicked will never understand that this is the Lord's way of taking them off to safety.
For they will see the death of the wise one and will not understand what the Lord intended, or why he kept him safe.
For they will see the end of the wise, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for them, and for what he kept them safe.
For they will see the end of the wise, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for them, and for what he kept them safe.
For they will see the end of the wise, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for them, and for what he kept them safe.
For they will see the end of the wise, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for them, and for what he kept them safe.
For they will see the end of the wise man, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for him, and for what he kept him safe.
For they will see the end of the wise man, and will not understand what the Lord purposed for him, and for what he kept him safe.
For they shall see the end of a wise man, and they shall not understand, what thing God thought of him, and why the Lord made him less. [Forsooth they shall see the end of the wise man, and they shall not understand, what God hath thought of him, and why the Lord diminished him.]
