The light of the righteous shines brightly,
but the lamp of the wicked will go out. Bible other translations

“will go out.” Wicked people will die here on earth, then experience everlasting death in the Lake of Fire (Rev. 20:13-15). Although many English versions nuance the verb to “will be extinguished,” or “will be put out,” that is an interpretation, not a translation. The Hebrew verb is simply to “go out” (cp. NAB; NASB; NET; Rotherham).
