Job's Eighth Speech, Continued

18 Swift is he on the face of the waters, Speedily vanished their share in the land, He turneth not to the way of the vineyards. 19 Drought and heat, steal away snow water, Hades, them who have sinned. 20 Maternal love shall forget him, the worm shall find him sweet, No more shall he be remembered, but perversity shall be shivered like a tree.
