18:12 His strength shall be hunger bitten, and calamity shall be ready at his side.
18:13 It devours parts of his skin: even the firstborn of death shall devour his parts.
18:14 His hope shall be rooted out of his tent, and it shall bring him to the king of terrors.
18:15 What is not his shall dwell in his tent, brimstone is scattered upon his home.
18:16 His roots are dried up beneath, and his branch wither above .
18:17 His memory perishes from the earth, and he shall have no name on the street.
18:18 He shall be driven from light to darkness, and chased out of the world.
18:19 He shall have no son nor kinsman among his people, nor [any] remaining in his dwellings.
18:20 Those after him shall be astonished at his day, as they that went before were [in] horror.
18:21 Surely such are the tents of the wicked, and this is the place
God has not known .
