Cherish righteousness, o judges of the earth, o judges of the earth.
The souls of the righteous are in the hands of god, and the torment of death will not touch them.
In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die, and their departure is taken for misery -- but they are at peace.
The ungodly ruler has no hope, and even if he lives long, he shall be regarded as nothing.
But the just prince, the just prince, he is at peace -- at peace.
