The earth lies defiled
    beneath its inhabitants;
because they have transgressed the laws,[a]
violated the statutes,
and broken the everlasting covenant.
Therefore the curse keeps on consuming,[b]
    and its inhabitants are declared guilty.
Furthermore, the inhabitants of earth are ablaze,
    and few people are left.
The new wine evaporates;
    the vine and the oil[c] dry up;
        all the merrymakers groan.
