18:17 Let the memory of him perish from the earth, and let not his name be renowned in the streets.
18:18 He shall drive him out of light into darkness, and shall remove him out of the world.
18:19 His seed shall not subsist, nor his offspring among his people, nor any remnants in his country.
18:20 They that come after him shall be astonished at his day, and horror shall fall upon them that went before.
