7 “Yet you said, ‘I will be a aqueen forever.’

These things you did not bconsider

Nor remember the coutcome of 1them.

8 “Now, then, hear this, you asensual one,

Who bdwells securely,

Who says in 1your heart,

cI am, and there is no one besides me.

I will dnot sit as a widow,

Nor know loss of children.’

9 “But these atwo things will come on you bsuddenly in one day:

Loss of children and widowhood.

They will come on you in full measure

In spite of your many csorceries,

In spite of the great power of your spells.

10 “You felt asecure in your wickedness and said,

bNo one sees me,’

Your cwisdom and your knowledge, 1they have deluded you;

For you have said in your heart,

dI am, and there is no one besides me.’

11 “But aevil will come on you

Which you will not know how to charm away;

And disaster will fall on you

For which you cannot atone;

And bdestruction about which you do not know

Will come on you csuddenly.

12 “Stand fast now in your aspells

And in your many sorceries

With which you have labored from your youth;

Perhaps you will be able to profit,

Perhaps you may cause trembling.

13 “You are awearied with your many counsels;

Let now the bastrologers,

Those who prophesy by the stars,

Those who predict by the new moons,

Stand up and csave you from what will come upon you.

14 “Behold, they have become alike stubble,

bFire burns them;

They cannot deliver themselves from the power of the flame;

There will be cno coal to warm by

Nor a fire to sit before!

15 “So have those become to you with whom you have labored,

Who have atrafficked with you from your youth;

Each has wandered in his own 1way;

There is bnone to save you.
