His children1 must make amends to the poor; his own hands must give back his wealth.211
The youthful vigor3 that fills his bones4 will lie with him in the dust.512
"Though evil6 is sweet in his mouth and he hides it under his tongue,713
though he cannot bear to let it go and keeps it in his mouth,814
yet his food will turn sour in his stomach;9 it will become the venom of serpents10 within him.
He will spit out the riches11 he swallowed; God will make his stomach vomit12 them up.
He will suck the poison13 of serpents; the fangs of an adder will kill him.1417
He will not enjoy the streams, the rivers15 flowing with honey16 and cream.1718
What he toiled for he must give back uneaten;18 he will not enjoy the profit from his trading.1919
For he has oppressed the poor20 and left them destitute;21 he has seized houses22 he did not build.
"Surely he will have no respite from his craving;23 he cannot save himself by his treasure.2421
Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.2522
In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him;26 the full force of misery will come upon him.27
