My conscience is clear for as long as I live.H6666H2388H7503H3824H2778H3117 7"May my enemy be punished like the wicked, my adversary like those who do evil.H341H7563H6965H5767 8For what hope do the godless have when God cuts them off and takes away their life?H8615H2611H1214H433H7953H5315 9Will God listen to their cry when trouble comes upon them?H410H8085H6818H6869H935 10Can they take delight in the Almighty? Can they call to God at any time?H6026H7706H6256H7121H433 11I will teach you about God's power. I will not conceal anything concerning the Almighty.H3384H3027H410H7706H3582 12But you have seen all this, yet you say all these useless things to me.H2372H1892H1891 13"This is what the wicked will receive from God; this is their inheritance from the Almighty.H2506H7563H120H410H5159H6184H3947H7706 14They may have many children, but the children will die in war or starve to death.H1121H7235H3926H2719H6631H7646H3899 15Those who survive will die of a plague, and not even their widows will mourn them.H8300H6912H4194H490H1058 16"Evil people may have piles of money and may store away mounds of clothing.H6651H3701H6083H3559H4403H2563 17But the righteous will wear that clothing, and the innocent will divide that money.H3559H6662H3847H5355H2505H3701 18The wicked build houses as fragile as a spider's web, as flimsy as a shelter made of branches.H1129H1004H6211H5521H5341H6213 19The wicked go to bed rich but wake to find that all their wealth is gone.H6223H7901H622H6491H5869 20Terror overwhelms them like a flood, and they are blown away in the storms of the night.H1091H5381H4325H5492H1589H3915 21The east wind carries them away, and they are gone. It sweeps them away.H6921H5375H3212H8175H4725 22It whirls down on them without mercy. They struggle to flee from its power.H7993H2550H1272H1272H3027 23But everyone jeers at them and mocks them.H5606H3709H8319H4725
