30 People do not despise a thief if he steals
To (A)satisfy [a]himself when he is hungry;
31 But when he is found, he must (B)repay seven times as much;
He must give up all the property of his house.
32 One who commits adultery with a woman is (C)lacking [b]sense;
He who would (D)destroy [c]himself commits it.
33 He will find wounds and disgrace,
And his shame will not be removed.
34 For (E)jealousy [d]enrages a man,
And he will not have compassion on the (F)day of vengeance.
35 He will not [e]accept any settlement,
Nor will he be [f]satisfied though you make it a large gift.
