And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
 

12:3 stars for ever. The wise will live forever and, for the analogy to be meaningful, the stars also must shine forever (note also Psalm 148:3-6; etc.). The universal “curse” on God’s creation, which now causes everything to decay and entropy to increase, will have been removed (Revelation 22:3), so no stars will thenceforth die.
