Abstract Verse 8 has been generally understood as referring to the wicked and his hopes, when God kills
him. This understanding, by implication, suggested that the righteous could have a valid post -
mortem hope, a position which is incongruous with views expressed in the book. It is being proposed in this study that the ש, in the difficult ישל, is the consequence of the עי ligature. Reading ליׅעֹי instead of יֵשֶל, the verse is focused on undermining the hope for gains of the hypocrite in his life.ׅ
