"There are those who rebel against the light,1 who do not know its ways or stay in its paths.2
When daylight is gone, the murderer rises up and kills3 the poor and needy;4 in the night he steals forth like a thief.5
The eye of the adulterer6 watches for dusk;7 he thinks, 'No eye will see me,'8 and he keeps his face concealed.
In the dark, men break into houses,9 but by day they shut themselves in; they want nothing to do with the light.10
For all of them, deep darkness is their morning; they make friends with the terrors11 of darkness.12
