Wisdom of Solomon 4:7

But though the righteous be prevented with death, yet shall he be in rest.
Read Chapter 4

Augustine of Hippo

AD 430
"The righteous one, even if he dies prematurely, will find rest." For whom, or from whom, is there in fact rest in this world, if there are trials on every side and, when we are spared these, temptations are everywhere? Indeed, this world should be feared, whether it threatens or seduces. But if one fears both God and the world, he will despise the latter, so as to better guard himself against it. Therefore, if we want to be at rest when death comes to surprise us, let us be righteous. - "Sermon 335m"

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