You put off the evil day and bring near a reign of terror.1
You lie on beds inlaid with ivory and lounge on your couches.2 You dine on choice lambs and fattened calves.3
You strum away on your harps4 like David and improvise on musical instruments.5
You drink wine6 by the bowlful and use the finest lotions, but you do not grieve7 over the ruin of Joseph.8
