"Though evil1 is sweet in his mouth and he hides it under his tongue,213
though he cannot bear to let it go and keeps it in his mouth,314
yet his food will turn sour in his stomach;4 it will become the venom of serpents5 within him.
He will spit out the riches6 he swallowed; God will make his stomach vomit7 them up.
He will suck the poison8 of serpents; the fangs of an adder will kill him.917
He will not enjoy the streams, the rivers10 flowing with honey11 and cream.1218
What he toiled for he must give back uneaten;13 he will not enjoy the profit from his trading.1419
For he has oppressed the poor15 and left them destitute;16 he has seized houses17 he did not build.
"Surely he will have no respite from his craving;18 he cannot save himself by his treasure.1921
Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.2022
In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him;21 the full force of misery will come upon him.22
