Why do you pursue me as God does? Will you never get enough of my flesh?
"Why do you persecute me as God does, And are not satisfied with my flesh?
Why must you persecute me as God does? Why aren’t you satisfied with my anguish?
Do you have to be hard on me too? Don't you ever tire of abusing me?
Why are you cruel to me, like God, for ever saying evil against me?
Why do you, like God, pursue me, never satisfied with my flesh?
Why do you persecute me as God does , And are not satisfied with my flesh?
