and the night that said, ‘A boy is conceived!’c
may God above not care about it;
may no light shine on it.
5 May gloom and utter darknessd claim it once more;
may a cloud settle over it;
may blackness overwhelm it.
6 That night—may thick darknesse seize it;
may it not be included among the days of the year
nor be entered in any of the months.
may no shout of joyf be heard in it.
those who are ready to rouse Leviathan.h
may it wait for daylight in vain
and not see the first rays of dawn,i
to hide trouble from my eyes.
Or curse the sea
