For what is our lot from God above, our heritage from the Almighty on high?
Is it not ruin for the wicked, disaster for those who do wrong?
Does he not see my ways and count my every step?
“If I have walked with falsehood or my foot has hurried after deceit—
let God weigh me in honest scales and he will know that I am blameless—
if my steps have turned from the path, if my heart has been led by my eyes, or if my hands have been defiled,
then may others eat what I have sown, and may my crops be uprooted.
“If my heart has been enticed by a woman, or if I have lurked at my neighbor’s door,
then may my wife grind another man’s grain, and may other men sleep with her.
For that would have been wicked, a sin to be judged.
It is a fire that burns to Destruction ; it would have uprooted my harvest.
