How is he numbered among the children of God, and his lot is among the saints!
All Commentaries on Wisdom of Solomon 5:5 Go To Wisdom of Solomon 5
Fulgentius of Ruspe
The unhoped-for salvation, that is, not hoped for by the wicked, will surely be given to the righteous, not to the wicked. Indeed, it will not be given to those who, not hoping for it, live badly, but to those who, justly hoping for it and abstaining from carnal desires, observe the salutary precepts of blessed Peter, who says, "Beloved, I exhort you, as strangers and pilgrims, to abstain from the desires of the flesh that war on the soul. Let your conduct among the pagans be irreproachable."
