There is a generation -- O how lofty are their eyes, and their eyelids are lifted up!
There is a generation whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
The horseleech hath two daughters, crying, "Give, give!" There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things that say not, "It is enough":
the grave, the barren womb, the earth that is not filled with water, and the fire that saith not, "It is enough."
The eye that mocketh at his father and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.
There are three things which are too wonderful for me, yea, four which I know not:
the way of an eagle in the air, the way of a serpent upon a rock, the way of a ship in the midst of the sea, and the way of a man with a maid.
Such is the way of an adulterous woman: she eateth, and wipeth her mouth, and saith, "I have done no wickedness."
For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear:
for a servant when he reigneth, and a fool when he is filled with meat,
for an odious woman when she is married, and a handmaid who is heir to her mistress.
