The righteous live for ever more
15. But the righteous live for evermore,
their reward also is with the Lord,
and the care of them is with the most High.
16. Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom,
and a beautiful crown from the Lord's hand:
for with his right hand shall he cover them,
and with his arm shall he protect them.
