Proverbs 30:15–16

15  The leech has two daughters:

Give and Give.1

kThree things are never satisfied;

kfour never say, Enough:

16  lSheol, mthe barren womb,

the land never satisfied with water,

and the fire that never says, Enough.

Habakkuk 2:5

Moreover, wine1 is pa traitor,

an arrogant man who is never at rest.2

His greed is as wide as Sheol;

like death qhe has never enough.

rHe gathers for himself all nations

and collects as his own all peoples.

Proverbs 1:12

12  like Sheol let us oswallow them alive,

and whole, like pthose who go down to the pit;
