The righteous live forever (Wis 5:15-5:16)

“But the righteous live forever.

Their reward is with the Lord.

The Most High takes care of them.

Therefore they will receive

A glorious crown.

They will receive

A beautiful diadem

From the hand of the Lord.

Because with his right hand

He will cover them.

With his arm

He will shield them.”

The righteous (δίκαιοι) will live forever (τὸν αἰῶνα ζῶσ). The Lord (Κυρίῳ) gives them this reward. The Most High God (῾Υψίστου) takes care of them. They will receive a glorious crown and a beautiful diadem from the Lord. His right hand (ἐκ χειρὸς Κυρίου) will cover him. His arm will provide a shield for them.
