He is torn from the security of his tent1 and marched off to the king2 of terrors.3
Fire resides in his tent;4 burning sulfur5 is scattered over his dwelling.
His roots dry up below6 and his branches wither above.7
The memory of him perishes from the earth;8 he has no name9 in the land.10
He is driven from light into darkness11 and is banished12 from the world.13
He has no offspring14 or descendants15 among his people, no survivor16 where once he lived.17
Men of the west are appalled18 at his fate;19 men of the east are seized with horror.
Surely such is the dwelling20 of an evil man;21 such is the place22 of one who knows not God."23
