10 “For you have trusted in your wickedness;
You have said, ‘No one (A)sees me’;
Your wisdom and your knowledge have [a]warped you;
And you have said in your heart,
‘I am, and there is no one else besides me.’
11 Therefore evil shall come upon you;
You shall not know from where it arises.
And trouble shall fall upon you;
You will not be able [b]to put it off.
And (B)desolation shall come upon you (C)suddenly,
Which you shall not know.

12 “Stand now with your enchantments
And the multitude of your sorceries,
In which you have labored from your youth—
Perhaps you will be able to profit,
Perhaps you will prevail.
