11 I will punish(A) the world for its evil,
    the wicked(B) for their sins.
I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty(C)
    and will humble(D) the pride of the ruthless.(E)

13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;(H)
    and the earth will shake(I) from its place
at the wrath(J) of the Lord Almighty,
    in the day of his burning anger.(K)

    all who are caught will fall(P) by the sword.(Q)
