“Now, then, hear this, you (A)luxuriant one,
Who (B)lives securely,
Who says in her heart,
(C)I am, and there is no one besides me.
I will (D)not sit as a widow,
Nor know the loss of children.’
But these (E)two things will come on you (F)suddenly in one day:
Loss of children and widowhood.
They will come on you in full measure
In spite of your many (G)sorceries,
In spite of the great power of your spells.
10 You felt (H)secure in your wickedness and said,
(I)No one sees me,’
Your (J)wisdom and your knowledge, [a]they have led you astray;
For you have said in your heart,
(K)I am, and there is no one besides me.’

That (B)dwells securely,
Who says in her heart,
(C)I am, and there is no one besides me.”
How she has become a (D)desolation,
A resting place for animals!
(E)Everyone who passes by her will [a]hiss
And wave his hand in contempt.
