Proverbs 30:11–16

11 There is a generation that will curse its father,

and its mother it will not bless.

12 There is a generation that is pure in its own eyes,

but from its filthiness it will not be cleansed.

13 There is a generation—how lofty are their eyes!

And their eyelids they will lift.

14 There is a generation whose teeth are swords,

and its jawbones, knives,

in order to devour the poor from the earthf

and the needy from humankind.

15 For the leech, there are two daughters;

“Give, give!” they cry.

As for three of these, they are not satisfied;

as for four, they do not say enough.

16 Sheolg and barrenness of womb,

the land is not satisfied with water,

and fire does not say “enough!”
