When he is tried, let him be found guilty,(A)
    and may his prayers condemn(B) him.
May his days be few;(C)
    may another take his place(D) of leadership.
May his children be fatherless
    and his wife a widow.(E)
10 May his children be wandering beggars;(F)
    may they be driven[a] from their ruined homes.
11 May a creditor(G) seize all he has;
    may strangers plunder(H) the fruits of his labor.(I)
12 May no one extend kindness to him
    or take pity(J) on his fatherless children.
13 May his descendants be cut off,(K)
    their names blotted out(L) from the next generation.
14 May the iniquity of his fathers(M) be remembered before the Lord;
    may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
15 May their sins always remain before(N) the Lord,
    that he may blot out their name(O) from the earth.
