16 But the ungodly by their words and deeds summoned death;*
considering him a friend, they pined away
and made a covenant with him,
because they are fit to belong to his company.
2For they reasoned unsoundly, saying to themselves,
Short and sorrowful is our life,
and there is no remedy when a life comes to its end,
and no one has been known to return from Hades.
