27 13 "This is the portion of a wicked man with God,
and the heritage which oppressors receive from the Almighty:
27 14 If his children are multiplied, it is for the sword;
and his offspring have not enough to eat.
27 15 Those who survive him the pestilence buries,
and their widows make no lamentation.
27 16 Though he heap up silver like dust,
and pile up clothing like clay;
27 17 he may pile it up, but the just will wear it,
and the innocent will divide the silver.
27 18 The house which he builds is like a spider's web,
like a booth which a watchman makes.
27 19 He goes to bed rich, but will do so no more;
he opens his eyes, and his wealth is gone.
27 20 Terrors overtake him like a flood;
in the night a whirlwind carries him off.
27 21 The east wind lifts him up and he is gone;
it sweeps him out of his place.
27 22 It hurls at him without pity;
he flees from its power in headlong flight.
27 23 It claps its hands at him,
and hisses at him from its place.
