God therefore does not intend to annihilate the wicked; their destruction cannot declare the faithfulness of God.

Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do their spirits rise up and praise you?
Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?
A maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the LORD's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
For the grave cannot praise you, death cannot sing your praise; those who go down to the pit cannot hope for your faithfulness.
