Lexham English Bible
7 Let them run away like water that runs off.
When he bends the bow, let his arrows be as though they were cut off.[a]
8 Let them be like a snail that melts away as it goes;
like the stillborn of woman that do not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the heat of a thornbush,
whether green or dry,[b] he will sweep it away.[c]
