12 “Stand fast now in your (A)spells
And in your many sorceries
With which you have labored from your youth;
Perhaps you will be able to profit,
Perhaps you may cause trembling.
13 “You are (B)wearied with your many counsels;
Let now the (C)astrologers,
Those who prophesy by the stars,
Those who predict by the new moons,
Stand up and (D)save you from what will come upon you.
14 “Behold, they have become (E)like stubble,
(F)Fire burns them;
They cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame;
There will be (G)no coal to warm by
Nor a fire to sit before!
15 “So have those become to you with whom you have labored,
Who have (H)trafficked with you from your youth;
Each has wandered in his own [a]way;
There is (I)none to save you.
