    to ·look for [run after; pursue] ·strong drink [or beer; C alcoholic beverage made from grain],

    or ·notice [see; comprehend] the work of his hands.

    because they ·don’t really know me [or lack understanding].
·All the great people [Their nobles/men of honor] will die of hunger,
    and the ·common people [multitudes; masses] ·will die of [or will be parched with] thirst.
