1The Clatterer!
2What is the Clatterer?
3And what shall teach thee what is the Clatterer?
4The day that men shall be like scattered moths,
5and the mountains shall be like plucked wool-tufts.
6Then he whose deeds weigh heavy in the Balance
7shall inherit a pleasing life,
8but he whose deeds weigh light in the Balance
9shall plunge in the womb of the Pit.
10And what shall teach thee what is the Pit?
11A blazing Fire!
