10 For thou hast trusted in thy ra’ah (wickedness); thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy chochmah and thy da’as, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine lev, I am, and none else beside me.

11 Therefore shall ra’ah come upon thee; thou shalt not know its shachar (dawn, from whence it riseth); and tragedy will befall thee; thou shalt not be able to make kofer (ransom) to ward it off; and sho’ah (catastrophe) shall come upon thee pitom (suddenly), which thou shalt not foresee or know.

10 You have trusted(A) in your wickedness
    and have said, ‘No one sees me.’(B)
Your wisdom(C) and knowledge mislead(D) you
    when you say to yourself,
    ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’
11 Disaster(E) will come upon you,
    and you will not know how to conjure it away.
A calamity will fall upon you
    that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee
    will suddenly(F) come upon you.

12 “Keep on, then, with your magic spells
    and with your many sorceries,(G)
    which you have labored at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed,
    perhaps you will cause terror.
