Wisdom of Solomon 4:4

“For though they flourish in branches for a time: yet standing not fast, they shall be shaken with the winde: and through the force of windes they shall be rooted out.”

King James Version (KJV)

Wisdom of Solomon 4:4

1. Better it is to haue no children, and to haue vertue: for the memoriall thereof is immortal: because it is knowen with God and with men. 2. When it is present, men take example at it, and when it is gone they desire it: it weareth a crown, and triumpheth for euer, hauing gotten the victorie, striuing for vndefiled rewards. 3. But the multiplying brood of the vngodly shall not thriue, nor take deepe rooting from bastard slips, nor lay any fast foundation. 4. For though they flourish in branches for a time: yet standing not fast, they shall be shaken with the winde: and through the force of windes they shall be rooted out. 5. The vnperfect branches shall bee broken off, their fruit vnprofitable, not ripe to eate: yea meet for nothing. 6. For children begotten of vnlawfull beds, are witnesses of wickednes against their parents in their triall. 7. But though the righteous be preuented with death: yet shal he be in rest.
