    SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:20

    porque para el malo no habrá buen fin, y la candela de los impíos será apagada.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Proverbs 24:20

    Verse 20. For there shall be no reboard to the
    evil man ] tyrja acharith. There shall not be the future state of blessedness to the wicked. See the note on ver. 14. 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.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 20. For there shall be no
    reward to the evil [man] , etc.] No reward of good things, such as is for the righteous in a way of grace; but he shall have a reward of evil things, a just recompence of reward for his sins: of “no end” f667 ; there will be an end of his life in this world, and there will be an end of his prosperity; but, as the Targum is, there will be no “good end” to him; his end will not be like that of the perfect and upright man, for it will be cut off, ( Psalm 37:37,38); or, as the Vulgate Latin version renders it, “the wicked have no hope of future things”; no good hope of everlasting happiness; they have their good things now, and their evil things hereafter; and therefore are not to be fretted at and envied. Aben Ezra interprets it, they shall have no offspring or issue, son or nephew; the word is sometimes used for posterity; the candle of the wicked shall be put out ; meaning not the dim light of nature in them, nor the light of life before their time, so Aben Ezra; but their prosperity, riches, splendour, and glory, which candle is often put out while they live, and always at death; after which they have no more light, honour, and happiness; even not so much as the light of a candle, to which their prosperity in this life is compared, it being at best but small, and of a short continuance; see ( Job 18:5,6 21:17); and therefore should not be the object of the envy of good men, who are in a more happy and stable condition than they.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 19, 20 -
    Envy not the wicked their prosperity; be sure there is no tru happiness in it.
