The evil-doer burns
Here and hereafter.
He burns in both worlds.
He burns thus thinking,
“Evil have I done.”
He burns more,
Gone to realms of woe.

[audio: English and Pāli]

The good person delights
Here and hereafter.
He delights in both worlds.
He delights thus thinking,
“Good have I done.”
He delights more,
Gone to realms of joy.

from ‘The Chapter on the Pairs’
Dhammapada
