Now therefore hear this, you lover of pleasures,
    who sit securely,
who say in your heart,
    ‘I am, and there is no one besides me;
I shall not sit as a widow
    or know the loss of children’—
both these things shall come upon you
    in a moment, in one day:
the loss of children and widowhood
    shall come upon you in full measure,
in spite of your many sorceries
    and the great power of your enchantments.

10 You felt secure in your wickedness;
    you said, ‘No one sees me.’
Your wisdom and your knowledge
    led you astray,
and you said in your heart,
    ‘I am, and there is no one besides me.’
