20:18 Swallow - So as to hold it. He shall not possess it long, nor to any considerable purpose. Yea, he shall be forced to part with his estate to make compensations for his wrongs. So that he shall not enjoy what he had gotten, because it shall be taken from him.

Man's Misery by the Fall
Their children will beg from the poor, for they must give back their stolen riches.
They will vomit the wealth they swallowed. God won't let them keep it down.

The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get.
