“Do not invite death by the error of your life, or bring on destruction by the works of your hands; because God did not make death, and he does not delight in the death of the living. For he created all things so that they might exist; the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion of Hades is not on earth. For righteousness is immortal. ”
The Wisdom of Solomon, 1:13ff
“For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Be’lial?”
2 Cor 6:14ff
“For God did not create death, neither does He take delight in the destruction of living things. But death is the work rather of man, that is, its origin is in Adam’s transgression, in like manner as all other punishments.”
St. John of Damascus, An Exact Exposition of the Orthodox Faith, 2, 28.
