hear this, you who are given to pleasures,
who dwells complacently, who says in your heart, ‘I am, and there is none but me...
there is none to save you.

5 “And you have trusted in your evil,
you have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and your knowledge have led you astray.
And you have said in your heart, ‘I am, and there is none but me.’ “But evil shall come upon you,
you not knowing from where it arises,
and trouble fall upon you,
you being unable to put it off,
and ruin come upon you suddenly,
which you know not.
6 “Stand now with your potent spells
and your many witchcrafts,
in which you have laboured from your youth,
if so be you are able to profit,
if so be you find strength. “You are exhausted by your many counsels;
let the astrologers, the stargazers,
and those who prognosticate by the new moons
stand up and save you from what is coming upon you.
7 “See, they shall be as stubble, fire shall burn them,
they do not deliver themselves from the power of the flame,
there is not a coal to be warmed by,
nor a fire to sit before it! “So they shall be to you with whom you have laboured,
your merchants from your youth.
They shall wander, each one his own way,
there is none to save you.”
