10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellations
    won’t shine[a] their light;
the sun will be dark when it rises,
    and the moon won’t shine its light.
11 I’ll punish the world for its evil,
    and the wicked for their iniquity;
I’ll put an end to the pomposity of the arrogant,
    and overthrow the insolence of tyrants.
12 I’ll make people scarcer[b] than pure gold,
    and mankind rarer[c] than gold from Ophir.
