    Clarke's Commentary on Proverbs 14:32

    The wicked is driven away in his wickedness - He does not leave life cheerfully. Poor soul! Thou hast no hope in the other world, and thou leavest the present with the utmost regret! Thou wilt not go off; but God will drive thee.

    But the righteous hath hope in his death - He rejoiceth to depart and be with Christ: to him death is gain; he is not reluctant to go - he flies at the call of God.

    Barnes' Notes on Proverbs 14:32

    Consult marginal reference. The hope which abides even "in death" must look beyond it.
