“Or someone may be chastened on a bed of pain with constant distress in their bones,
so that their body finds food repulsive and their soul loathes the choicest meal.
Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out.
They draw near to the pit, and their life to the messengers of death.
