10 For the (A)stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash forth their light;
The (B)sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light.
11 Thus I will (C)punish the world for its evil
And the (D)wicked for their iniquity;
I will also put an end to the (E)arrogance of the proud
And abase the (F)haughtiness of the [a](G)ruthless.
12 I will make mortal man [b](H)scarcer than pure gold
And mankind than the (I)gold of Ophir.
