Some people have teeth like swords; their jaws ·seem full of knives [are a butcher’s knife; C their words hurt people]. They want to ·remove [L consume] the poor from the earth and the needy from the ·land [or humanity].
There is a dor (generation), whose teeth are as charavot (swords), and their jaw teeth are as knives, to devour the aniyim (oppressed poor ones) from off ha’aretz, and the evyonim (needy ones) from among adam.
(There is) A generation that hath swords for teeth, and eateth with his cheek teeth; that it eat [the] needy men of [the] earth, and the poor-alls of men. (There be people who have swords for teeth, and eat with their molars; and they eat the needy of the earth, and those who be all-poor, or without anything.)
