Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...(the wicked) had stolen; now he says, that even that for which he had laboured himself, and which he had obtained as reward of his trouble, he shall restore, in addition to that which he had stolen, --in the same way as he shall restore the riches, that are its exchange; i.e. the stolen riches in exchange of which he now gives the riches of his labour. This is the meaning of the 3 of Stt?, in the same way as, for the opposite has come to pass. And he shall not rejoice even at the riches of his labour. The word sjn has the Kametz, and is of the same formation as (Gen. xli. 30): and all jatorr the plenty shall be forgotten, it was, therefore, explained as the labour of the people whom he robbed; we can also explain it, as the produce of his own labour. 19. For he has oppressed and exacted in secret from the poor, in order to join house to house, field to field (Is. v. 8), by robbing them, and he thought he would be able thus to build them up; but it is not so. This is the same as (t 15): God shall cast them out of his belly: --20. (namely): For he did not know when he was quiet in his belly that was full of robbery. Of that which it coveted, which his belly coveted, that was covetous to eat of stolen goods, he shall not save aught. 21.

Or, there shall be nothing left of what he devoured; but he did not set his heart to this, therefore.... shall not endure and last long. But 22. In the fulness of his sufflciency, and the plentiful food in his full belly, when he imagines to enjoy it, then he shall be in straits; so much so, that the hand of every one that is in misery and weak shall come upon him to put him to straits and to destroy him. 23, When he is about to.
