When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, people’s hearts are filled with schemes to do wrong.
Although a wicked person who commits a hundred crimes may live a long time, I know that it will go better with those who fear God, who are reverent before him.
References for Ecclesiastes 8:12
Yet because the wicked do not fear God, it will not go well with them, and their days will not lengthen like a shadow.
