For there shall be no reward to the evil man; The lamp of the wicked shall be put out.

Proverbs 24:20 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
For there shall be no reboard to the evil man - אחרית acharith. There shall not be the future state of blessedness to the wicked. See the note on Proverbs 24:14 (note). His candle shall be put out; his prosperity shall finally cease, or he shall have no posterity. Some have thought that this text intimates the annihilation of sinners; but it refers not to being, but to the state or condition of that being. The wicked shall be; but they shall not be Happy.
