Sinners in the hands of an angry god.

“8.     Natural men’s prudence and care to preserve their own lives, or the care of others to preserve them, do not secure them a moment. To this, divine providence and universal experience do also bear testimony. There is this clear evidence that men’s own wisdom is no security to them from death; that if it were otherwise we should see some difference between the wise and politic men of the world, and others, with regard to their liableness to early and unexpected death: but how is it in fact? Eccles. 2:16. “How dieth the wise man? even as the fool.“”  Jonathan Edwards

We all die when it is God’s will for us to die.  No contrivance of wisdom or artifice of intellect will stay His hand.
