15 The leech has two daughters:
    Give and Give.[a]
(A)Three things are never satisfied;
    (B)four never say, “Enough”:
16 (C)Sheol, (D)the barren womb,
    the land never satisfied with water,
    and the fire that never says, “Enough.”

17 The eye that (E)mocks a father
    and (F)scorns to obey a mother
will (G)be picked out by (H)the ravens of the valley
    and eaten by the vultures.

18 (I)Three things are (J)too wonderful for me;
    (K)four I do not understand:
19 the way of an eagle in the sky,
    the way of a serpent on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
    and the way of a man with a virgin.
