“But the eyes of the wicked shall fail, and they shall not escape, and their hope shall be as the giving up of the ghost.”
King James Version (KJV)
11:20 Fail - Either with grief and tears for their sore calamities: or with long looking for what they shall never attain. Their hope - They shall never obtain deliverance out of their distresses, but shall perish in them. Ghost - Shall be as vain and desperate as the hope of life is in a man, when he is at the very point of death.
