Evangelical Heritage Version
7 Let them vanish like water that flows away.
When he draws his bow, let his arrows be cut off.[a]
8 As a slug melts away as it crawls along, so let him disappear.
Like a stillborn child may they not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the heat of the thorns—
whether the thorns are green or dry—they will be swept away.[b]
New International Version

8 May they be like a slug that melts away as it moves along,(C)
like a stillborn child(D) that never sees the sun.
