For he has oppressed the poor1 and left them destitute;2 he has seized houses3 he did not build.
"Surely he will have no respite from his craving;4 he cannot save himself by his treasure.5
Nothing is left for him to devour; his prosperity will not endure.6
In the midst of his plenty, distress will overtake him;7 the full force of misery will come upon him.8
