10 You do bad things but still feel safe.[a]
    You say to yourself, ‘No one sees the wrong I do.’
You thought that your wisdom and knowledge would save you.
    You tell yourself, ‘I alone am important,
    and no one else matters.’

11 “But disaster is coming your way.
    You don’t know when it will happen, but disaster is coming.
    And there is nothing you can do to stop it.
12 You worked hard all your life
    learning magic and spells.
So start using that magic.
    Maybe those spells will help you.
    Maybe you will be able to frighten someone.
