4 For they have no pangs until death; their bodies are fat and sleek. 4 They have no struggles; their bodies are healthy and strong.
5 They are not in trouble as others are; they are not stricken like the rest of mankind. 5 They are free from the burdens common to man; they are not plagued by human ills.
6 Therefore pride is their necklace; violence covers them as a garment. 6 Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.
