As we get old or are very sick, death is just over the next horizon, so let us look at some more verses from the Bible on this subject.
Psalm 116:15 (KJV )
15 Precious in the sight of the Lord
Is the death of his saints. THE WRITER OF THIS PSALM STATES PRECIOUS IN GOD’S SIGHT IS THE DIEING OF A SAINT.
Psalm 48:14 (KJV)
14 For this God is our God for ever and ever:
He will be our guide even unto death. GOD GUIDES OUR FOOTSTEPS EVEN IN DEATH.
King James Version (KJV)
23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Isaiah 57:1 (KJV)
The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart:
And merciful men are taken away, none considering
That the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. SAINTS ARE REMOVED FROM THE EVIL TO COME.
