Wisdom of Solomon 4:13

“He being made perfect in a short time, fulfilled a long time.”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 4:13

10. He pleased God, and was beloued of him: so that liuing amongst sinners, he was translated. 11. Yea, speedily was he taken away, lest that wickednes should alter his vnderstanding, or deceit beguile his soule. 12. For the bewitching of naughtines doth obscure things that are honest: and the wandring of concupiscence, doth vndermine the simple mind. 13. He being made perfect in a short time, fulfilled a long time. 14. For his soule pleased the Lord: therefore hasted he to take him away, from among the wicked. 15. This the people saw, and vnderstood it not: neither laid they vp this in their mindes, That his grace and mercie is with his Saints, and that he hath respect vnto his chosen. 16. Thus the righteous that is dead, shall condemne the vngodly, which are liuing, and youth that is soone perfected, the many yeeres and old age of the vnrighteous.
