    and as dry grass sinks down in the flame,

    and their blossom go up like dust;
for they have (D)rejected the law of the Lord of hosts,
    and have (E)despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

they cannot deliver themselves
    from the power of the flame.
No coal for warming oneself is this,
    no fire to sit before!
