Such knowledge is higher than the heavens--and who are you? It is deeper than the underworld--what do you know?
The underworld is naked in God's presence. The place of destruction is uncovered.
No darkness is thick enough to hide the wicked from his eyes.
They couldn't stand the thought of food, and they were knocking on death's door.
