2 “How long before you stop making such speeches?
Show some understanding so that we may then speak.
Will the earth be abandoned for your sake,
Or will the rock move away from its place?
6 The light in his tent will certainly grow dark,
And the lamp over him will be extinguished.
8 For his feet will lead him into a net,
And he will wander onto its mesh.
10 A rope is hidden for him on the ground,
And a trap lies in his path.
16 His roots will dry up beneath him,
And his branches will wither above him.
18 He will be driven from the light into the darkness
And chased away from the productive land.
19 He will have no offspring and no descendants among his people,
And he will be without a survivor in the place where he lives.*
20 When his day comes, the people in the West will be appalled
And the people in the East will be seized with horror.
21 This is what happens to the tents of a wrongdoer
And to the place of the one who has not known God.”
