What he toiled for he must give back uneaten;1 he will not enjoy the profit from his trading.2
For he has oppressed the poor3 and left them destitute;4 he has seized houses5 he did not build.
"Surely he will have no respite from his craving;6 he cannot save himself by his treasure.7
Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.8
