"It is drawn forth and comes out of his back, Even the glittering point from his gall. Terrors come upon him,
How they are destroyed in a moment! They are utterly swept away by sudden terrors!
"As often as it passes through, it will seize you; For morning after morning it will pass through, anytime during the day or night, And it will be sheer terror to understand what it means."
