23 When he fills his stomach,
God will send His burning anger against him,
raining(A) it down on him while he is eating.[a]
24 If he flees from an iron weapon,
an arrow from a bronze bow will pierce him.
25 He pulls it out of his back,
the flashing tip out of his liver.[b]
Terrors come over him.(B)
