on the death of a very bad man who choose , like Lucifer, Eternal Damnation

The Father and the Son
viewing from the Empyrean, 
Lucifer's upward flight 
from Pandemonium, through Chaos, 
to corrupt man 
and the new formed world. ….

"They trespass, Authors to themselves in all
Both what they judge and what they choose; for so
I formd them free, and free they must remain,
Till they enthrall themselves: I else must change [ 125 ]
Thir nature, and revoke the high Decree"

… It is revealed,
that Lucifer
and his angels,
fallen, self deceived,
are never to be redeemed.  

(John Milton, Paradise Lost, Book 3)
