Proverbs 11:7

When a wicked man dies, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perishes.

Solicitous. Or ambitious. Hebrew, "the potent "or Septuagint, "the impious."

John Chrysostom

AD 407
“When a righteous man dies, hope does not perish.” He hopes that his children will do well; he hopes to be provided with great things. This passage also transports us to thoughts of the resurrection or of our posterity. Or, since one who is righteous has delighted in all these things already, he will also enjoy their future consummation; or, finally, that he would have enjoyment of glory after death. Commentary on the Proverbs of Solomon, Fragment

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