The LORD will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind.
At midday you will grope20 about like a blind man in the dark. You will be unsuccessful in everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue21 you.
You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and ravish her.22 You will build a house, but you will not live in it.23 You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit.24
