    trembling grips the impious:
“Who of us can live with consuming fire?
    who of us can live with everlasting flames?”(A)

    who spurns what is gained by oppression,
Who waves off contact with a bribe,
    who stops his ears so as not to hear of bloodshed,

    with fortresses of rock for stronghold,
    food and drink in steady supply.
