Don’t gloat when your enemy falls,
and don’t let your heart rejoice when he stumbles,
Still, if caught, he must pay seven times as much;
he must give up all the wealth in his house.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this dying body?
There I will give her vineyards back to her
and make the Valley of Achor
into a gateway of hope.
There she will respond as she did
in the days of her youth,
as in the day she came out of the land of Egypt.
The one who digs a pit will fall into it,
and whoever rolls a stone—
it will come back on him.
You said to yourself:
“I will ascend to the heavens;
I will set up my throne
above the stars of God.
I will sit on the mount of the gods’ assembly,
in the remotest parts of the North.
