Ecclesiastes 8:12-13 Though a sinner does evil a hundred times and prolongs his life, yet I know that it will be well with those who fear God, because they fear before him. But it will not be well with the wicked, neither will he prolong his days like a shadow, because he does not fear before God.
This text draws a clearn line between sinners - even if they do seem to be having a good or a long life now - and the righteous, those who fear God. Even more so the wicked, whose days will not be prolonged.
