The word of God says:
“The labor of the righteous tendeth to life: the fruit of the wicked to sin” (Proverbs 10:16).
“As righteousness tendeth to life: so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death” (Proverbs 11:19).
“In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is no death” (Proverbs 12:28).
“The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil” (Proverbs 19:23).
“The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death” (Proverbs 14:27).
