24:5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert They go forth to their work, seeking diligently for food; The wilderness `yieldeth' them bread for their children.
24:11 They make oil within the walls of these men; They tread `their' winepresses, and suffer thirst.
24:12 From out of the populous city men groan, And the soul of the wounded crieth out: Yet God regardeth not the folly.
24:13 These are of them that rebel against the light; They know not the ways thereof, Nor abide in the paths thereof.
24:14 The murderer riseth with the light; He killeth the poor and needy; And in the night he is as a thief.
24:15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, Saying, No eye shall see me: And he disguiseth his face.
24:16 In the dark they dig through houses: They shut themselves up in the day-time; They know not the light.
24:17 For the morning is to all of them as thick darkness; For they know the terrors of the thick darkness.
24:18 Swiftly they `pass away' upon the face of the waters; Their portion is cursed in the earth: They turn not into the way of the vineyards.
24:20 The womb shall forget him; The worm shall feed sweetly on him; He shall be no more remembered; And unrighteousness shall be broken as a tree.
24:24 They are exalted; yet a little while, and they are gone; Yea, they are brought low, they are taken out of the way as all others, And are cut off as the tops of the ears of grain.
