For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the broken-hearted.
Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, But persecuted the afflicted and needy man, And the despondent in heart, to put them to death.
For he refused all kindness to others; he persecuted the poor and needy, and he hounded the brokenhearted to death.
That's all he deserves since he was never once kind, hounded the afflicted and heartbroken to their graves.
Because he had no mercy, but was cruel to the low and the poor, designing the death of the broken-hearted.
For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted to their death.
Because he did not remember to show mercy, But persecuted the poor and needy man, That he might even slay the broken in heart.
