then know that God has wronged me1 and drawn his net2 around me.3
"Though I cry, 'I've been wronged!' I get no response;4 though I call for help,5 there is no justice.6
He has blocked my way so I cannot pass;7 he has shrouded my paths in darkness.8
He has stripped9 me of my honor10 and removed the crown from my head.11
He tears me down12 on every side till I am gone; he uproots my hope13 like a tree.14
His anger15 burns against me; he counts me among his enemies.16
