Dhammapada Verses 17 & 18 l Yamaka Vagga

17. The evil-doer feels regret in this life and in the next. He feels regret in both worlds. He is regretful knowing, “I have done evil.” He is more regretful once he is reborn in the plane of misery.

18. The maker of merits is delighted in this life and in the next. He is delighted in both worlds. He is delighted in knowing, “I have made merit.” He is delighted even more once he is reborn in heaven.
