The fear of Yahweh adds to one’s days,
but the years of the wicked will be cut short. Bible see other translations

“will be cut short.” Although this Proverb can apply to life here and now, it really has an eschatological tone, because although wicked people may live a long life here on earth, they will not live long after Judgment Day when they are thrown into the Lake of Fire and are annihilated.

[For more on annihilation in the Lake of Fire, see Appendix 5: “Annihilation in the Lake of Fire.”]
