23 When he has filled his belly,(A)
    God will vent his burning anger(B) against him
    and rain down his blows on him.(C)
24 Though he flees(D) from an iron weapon,
    a bronze-tipped arrow pierces him.(E)
25 He pulls it out of his back,
    the gleaming point out of his liver.
Terrors(F) will come over him;(G)
26     total darkness(H) lies in wait for his treasures.
A fire(I) unfanned will consume him(J)
    and devour what is left in his tent.(K)
27 The heavens will expose his guilt;
    the earth will rise up against him.(L)
28 A flood will carry off his house,(M)
    rushing waters[a] on the day of God’s wrath.(N)
29 Such is the fate God allots the wicked,
    the heritage appointed for them by God.”(O)
