God crushes hope

18 But an eroding mountain breaks up, and rock is displaced.
19 Water wears away boulders; floods carry away soil; you destroy a people's hope.
20 You overpower them relentlessly, and they die; you change their appearance and send them away.
21 Their children achieve honor, and they don't know it; their children become insignificant, and they don't see it.
22 They only feel the pain of their body, and they mourn for themselves.
