▼ Or again took upcontinued his b discourse and said, 2 “As God lives c who has taken away my right,
And the Almighty d who has embittered my soul,
3 For as long as ▼
▼ Lit breathlife is in me,
And the ▼
▼ Or spirit, g breath of God is in my nostrils,
4 My lips certainly will not speak unjustly,
Nor will h my tongue mutter deceit.
5 “Far be it from me that I should declare you right;
Till I die i I will not put away my integrity from me.
6 “I j hold fast my righteousness and will not let it go.
My heart does not reproach any of my days.
The State of the Godless7 “May my enemy be as the wicked
▼ Lit he who rises up against memy opponent as the unjust.
8 “For what is l the hope of the godless ▼
▼ Or though he gainswhen he is cut off,
When God requires n his ▼
▼ Lit soullife?
9 “Will God p hear his cry
When q distress comes upon him?
10 “Will he take r delight in the Almighty?
Will he call on God at all times?
11 “I will instruct you in the ▼
▼ Lit handpower of God;
What is with the Almighty I will not conceal.
12 “Behold, all of you have seen it;
Why then do you ▼
▼ Or speak vanityact foolishly?
13 “This is u the portion of a wicked man from God,
And the inheritance which v tyrants receive from the Almighty.
14 “Though his sons are many ▼
▼ Lit the sword is for themthey are destined x for the sword;
And his y descendants will not be satisfied with bread.
15 “His survivors will be buried because of the plague,
▼ So ancient versions; Heb histheir aa widows will not be able to weep.
16 “Though he piles up silver like dust
And prepares garments as plentiful as the clay,
17 He may prepare it ab but the just will wear it
And the innocent will divide the silver.
18 “He has built his ac house like the ▼
▼ So ancient versions; Heb mothspider’s web,
Or as a hut which the watchman has made.
19 “He lies down rich, but never ▼
▼ So ancient versions; Heb will be gatheredagain;
He opens his eyes, and af it is no longer.
20 ag “Terrors overtake him like a flood;
A tempest steals him away ah in the night.
21 “The east ai wind carries him away, and he is gone,
For it whirls him aj away from his place.
22 “For it will hurl at him ak without sparing;
He will surely try to al flee from its ▼
▼ Lit handpower.
23 “Men will clap their hands at him
And will an hiss him from his place.
