10 You have felt secure in your evil ways.
    You have said, ‘No one sees what I’m doing.’
Your wisdom and knowledge lead you astray.
    You say to yourself,
    ‘I am like a god. No one is greater than I am.’
11 So horrible trouble will come on you.
    You will not know how to use your evil magic to make it go away.
Great trouble will fall on you.
    No amount of money can keep it away.
Something terrible will happen to you all at once.
    You will not see it coming ahead of time.

12 “So keep on casting your magic spells.
    Keep on practicing your evil magic.
    You have been doing those things ever since you were a child.
Perhaps they will help you.
    Maybe they will scare your enemies away.
