Question 39 - Flourish and perish; both are same!

Psalm 92:12 NKJV - "The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon."
Proverbs 12:21 NKJV - "No grave trouble will overtake the righteous, But the wicked shall be filled with evil."
Isaiah 57:1 NKJV - "The righteous perishes, And no man takes it to heart; Merciful men are taken away, While no one considers That the righteous is taken away from evil."
Ecclesiastes 9:2 NKJV - "All things come alike to all: One event happens to the righteous and the wicked; To the good, the clean, and the unclean; To him who sacrifices and him who does not sacrifice. As is the good, so is the sinner; He who takes an oath as he who fears an oath."
Hebrews 12:6 NKJV - "For whom the LORD loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives."
                What are the differences between the righteous one and wicked one?
                Abraham trusted the Lord God, so it is considered as the virtue for him. So, he lived for a long period in the holiness of the Lord and gained many sons and daughters and became forefather to many nations, i.e., Arabians and Israelites i.e., Muslims, Jews and Christians.
                Proverb 10:27, “But the years of the wicked will be shorted”. We know clearly that the thousands of Israelites died with the serpent - bite, because they left the divine fear and devotion.
                Isaiah 57:1, “The righteous perishes, and no man takes it to heart”. If Israelites taken prophesies to heart about the coming of Lord Christ who is the image of virtue and purity in those days then there was no chance to crucify him. Likewise, martyrs, etc., also.

                Psalms 73:3-4, “For I was envious of the boastful, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no bands in their death, but their strength is firm”. According to this, the righteous person could not see the desires of the flesh. So, he dwindle the desires of the flesh with fasting and prayer. The wealth earned according to the righteousness is not sufficient to him and his family.  So, the wealth earned according to the unrighteousness is unending wealth for the generation to generation but the wealth of this world is no use to his spirit’s progress as he has to die one day and the he cannot carry anything of this world.
