He is swift as the waters - Literally, Light is he on the face of the waters: and cursed shall be their portion on the earth, which Mr. Good translates: -

They crush olives among the terraces; they tread the winepresses, yet suffer thirst.
Terrors overtake him like a flood; a tempest snatches him away in the night.
