“Whose harvest the hungry eateth up, and taketh it even out of the thorns, and the robber swalloweth up their substance.”
King James Version (KJV)
5:5 Harvest - Which they confidently expect to reap after all their cost and labour, but are sadly and suddenly disappointed. The hungry - The hungry Sabeans eat it up. Thorns - Out of the fields: in spite of all dangers or difficulties in their way.
