Ecclesiastes 9:2 GNT

2 It makes no difference. a The same fate comes to the righteous and the wicked, to the good and the bad, b to those who are religious and those who are not, to those who offer sacrifices and those who do not. A good person is no better off than a sinner; one who takes an oath is no better off than one who does not.
