21:6And he walked in the way of the kings of Israel, like as did the house of Ahab: for he had the daughter of Ahab to wife: and he wrought that which was evil in the eyes of the LORD.

18:18He shall be driven from light into darkness, and chased out of the world.

20:4Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,

20:5That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?

20:11His bones are full of the sin of his youth, which shall lie down with him in the dust.

21:13They spend their days in wealth, and in a moment go down to the grave.

21:17How oft is the candle of the wicked put out! and how oft cometh their destruction upon them! God distributeth sorrows in his anger.

21:18They are as stubble before the wind, and as chaff that the storm carrieth away.

21:23One dieth in his full strength, being wholly at ease and quiet.

21:25And another dieth in the bitterness of his soul, and never eateth with pleasure.

21:26They shall lie down alike in the dust, and the worms shall cover them.

24:20The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.

24:24They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.

27:8For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?

27:19The rich man shall lie down, but he shall not be gathered: he openeth his eyes, and he is not.

27:20Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night.

27:21The east wind carrieth him away, and he departeth: and as a storm hurleth him out of his place.

27:22For God shall cast upon him, and not spare: he would fain flee out of his hand.

27:23Men shall clap their hands at him, and shall hiss him out of his place.

36:14They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

36:18Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.

Psalms (Author Moses, David, Solomon, Asaph, Heman, Ethan, sons of Korah, compiled by Ezra)

37:1Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

37:2For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

37:9For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

37:10For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

37:35I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

37:36Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

49:7None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

49:9That he should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

49:10For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

49:14Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

49:17For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

49:19He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

49:20Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.

55:23But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

58:9Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath.

73:3For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

73:4For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm.

73:17Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

73:18Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.

73:19How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

73:20As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.

78:50He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

92:7When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

Proverbs (Author Solomon)

2:22But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.

5:22His own iniquities shall take the wicked himself, and he shall be holden with the cords of his sins.

5:23He shall die without instruction; and in the greatness of his folly he shall go astray.

10:25As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.

10:27The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

11:7When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.

11:10When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.

13:9The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

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

21:16The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.

24:20For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out.

29:1He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.

29:16When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.

Ecclesiastes (Author Solomon)

8:10And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.

Isaiah (Author Isaiah)

14:11Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.

14:15Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

17:14And behold at eveningtide trouble; and before the morning he is not. This is the portion of them that spoil us, and the lot of them that rob us.

16:4They shall die of grievous deaths; they shall not be lamented; neither shall they be buried; but they shall be as dung upon the face of the earth: and they shall be consumed by the sword, and by famine; and their carcases shall be meat for the fowls of heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.

Luke (Author Luke)

12:20But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

16:22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

16:23And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

16:24And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

16:25But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

16:26And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

16:27Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

16:28For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

Acts (Author Luke)

5:3But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land?

5:4Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.

5:5And Ananias hearing these words fell down, and gave up the ghost: and great fear came on all them that heard these things.

5:6And the young men arose, wound him up, and carried him out, and buried him.

5:7And it was about the space of three hours after, when his wife, not knowing what was done, came in.

5:8And Peter answered unto her, Tell me whether ye sold the land for so much? And she said, Yea, for so much.

5:9Then Peter said unto her, How is it that ye have agreed together to tempt the Spirit of the Lord? behold, the feet of them which have buried thy husband are at the door, and shall carry thee out.

5:10Then fell she down straightway at his feet, and yielded up the ghost: and the young men came in, and found her dead, and, carrying her forth, buried her by her husband.
