Isaiah 57:1-2 ESV

The righteous man perishes, and no one lays it to heart; devout men are taken away, while no one understands. For the righteous man is taken away from calamity;

He enters into peace; they rest in their beds who walk in their uprightness.

Why God Allows the Wicked to Live Long, and the Righteous to Die Young
God wants all men to be saved, and thus extends patience to the wicked and calls some of the righteous to go home.
