Let them dissolve like water flowing away.
    When they bend the bow,
    let their arrows be like headless shafts.[a]
Like the snail that dissolves into slime,
    like a woman’s stillborn child,
    let them never see the sun.
Before your pots feel the thorns,
    whether green or burned up,
    God will sweep them away![b]
