    you said, “No one sees me”;
your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray,
and you said in your heart,
    (A)“I am, and there is no one besides me.”

    which you will not know how to charm away;
disaster shall fall upon you,
    for which you will not be able to atone;
(B)and ruin shall come upon you suddenly,
    of which you know nothing.

    perhaps you may inspire terror.
