And [fn]they march him in step before the king of terrors.

[fn]There dwells in his tent nothing of his;

Brimstone is scattered on his abode.

And chased from the inhabited world.

Nor any survivor where he sojourned.

And those [fn]in the east are seized with horror.

“Surely such are the dwellings of the unjust,

And this is the place of him who does not know God.”

LSB Footnotes
Lit he...tears himself...his
Lit spark
Lit steps of his strength
Lit his tent his trust
Or you or she shall march
Or Fire dwells in his tent
Lit They drive him...And chase him
Lit who come after
Lit day
Lit who have gone before
