Wisdom of Solomon 1:15

For righteousness is immortal:
Read Chapter 1

Didymus the Blind

AD 398
I saw a godless person who said, "By the power of my own hand I have acted, and with my wisdom, for I am shrewd. I have removed the boundaries of the peoples, and I have pillaged their treasures." I saw him exalted. I went forward in my thoughts to the next life and considered the arrangements of Providence. I saw him no longer, nor did I find his place, even though I looked for it. Godlessness will come to an end and will be no more. It is not included in what is immortal, as is said of righteousness, "Righteousness is immortal." - "On the Psalm 36.35–36" ...

Didymus the Blind

AD 398
When I prospered, sowing in righteousness and reaping the fruits of righteousness, I was in such a state that I could never waver. If "whoever does the will of God remains forever" and his "righteousness is immortal," I indeed said this when I received the fruits of righteousness and prospered. I spoke thus to my soul, just as with the word according to which "no one can say "Jesus is Lord" "" I confessed this with my soul and with my life when I prospered and bore fruits of virtue, because I will never waver, according to the word: "Whoever believes, and whoever lives and believes, will never die," and "The righteousness of the Lord remains forever." - "On the Psalm 29.7" ...

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
