New International Version
Hopes placed in mortals die with them; all the promise of their power comes to nothing.
King James Bible
When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth.

World English Bible

The prospect of the righteous is joy, but the hopes of the wicked come to nothing.
The righteous person is rescued from trouble, and it falls on the wicked instead.
