2"Howlong will you hunt for words ? Showunderstanding and then we can talk.
3"Why are we 1regarded as beasts, As stupid in your eyes ?
"O byou who tearyourself in your anger - For your sake is the earth to be abandoned, Or the rock to be moved from its place ?
5"Indeed, the 2light of the wickedgoes out, And the cflame of his firegivesnolight.
"The light in his tent is 3darkened, And his lampgoes out above him.
"His dvigorousstride is shortened, And his 4own schemebrings him down.
"For he is 5thrown into the net by his own feet, And he steps on the webbing.
"A snareseizes him by the heel, And a trapsnapsshut on him.
"A noose for him is hidden in the ground, And a trap for him on the path.
11"Allaround6terrorsfrighten him, And 7harry him at every step.
"His strength is 8famished, And calamity is ready at his side.
"eHis skin is devoured by disease, The firstborn of death9devours his flimbs.
"He is 10torn from gthe security of his tent, And hthey march him before the king of 11terrors.
"iThere dwells in his tentnothing of his; 12Brimstone is scattered on his habitation.
"His 13roots are driedbelow , And his 14branch is cutoffabove .
"15Memory of him perishes from the earth, And he has nonameabroad .
"jHe is driven from light16into darkness, And 17chased from the inhabitedworld.
"He has no18offspring or posterity among his people, Nor any survivorwhere he sojourned.
"Those kin the west are appalled at 19his lfate, And those min the east are seized with horror.
21"Surelysuch are the 20dwellings of the wicked, And this is the place of him who does not knowGod."
