2 “⌊How long⌋c will you say these things,
and the words of your mouth be a mighty wind?
⌊or⌋d Shaddai pervert righteousness?
5 If you yourselfg would seek God,
thenh you would plead to Shaddai for grace.
indeed,i now he will rouse himself for you,
and he will restore your righteous abode.
7 Thoughj your beginning was small,
your endk will be very great.
8 “Indeed,l please inquire of former generations,
and consider ⌊what their ancestors have found⌋,m
for our days on earth are a shadow.
and ⌊utter⌋p words from their heart?
Will reeds flourish without water?q
and the hope of the godless will perish,
and ⌊whose trust⌋t is a spider’s house.
15 He will lean himself against his house, butu it will not stand;
he will take hold of it, butv it will not endure.
and his plant shoots spread over his garden.
he sees a house of stone.
theny it deceives him, saying, ‘I have never seen you.’
and from dust others will spring up.
and he will not uphold the hand of evildoers.
and your lips with a shout of joy.
and the tent of the wicked ⌊will be no more⌋.”z
