22  Speak: Thus saith YHWH--And the carcasses of men fall as dung upon the open field, and as the handful after the harvestman, which none gathereth.'

22  And the carcases of the men shall be for an example on the face of the field of your land, like grass after the mower, and there shall be none to gather them.

22  “Speak: Thus says the Lord: And the corpses of men will fall like manure over the face of the countryside, and like hay behind the back of the reaper, and there will be no one to gather it.”

23  Thus saith YHWH: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches;

23  Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, and let not the strong man boast in his strength, and let not the rich man boast in his wealth;

23  Thus says the Lord: “The wise man should not glory in his wisdom, and the strong man should not glory in his strength, and the rich man should not glory in his riches.
