New American Standard Bible

Chapter 2

6 'Will all of these not take up a song of ridicule against him, Even a saying and insinuations against him And say, ‘Woe to him who increases what is not his— For how long— And makes himself rich with debts!’ 7 Will your creditors not rise up suddenly, And those who collect from you awaken? Indeed, you will become plunder for them.
King James Version

Chapter 2

6 Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and a taunting proverb against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay! 7 Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shalt be for booties unto them?
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 2

6 Won't all of these take up a taunt against him, with mockery and riddles about him? They will say, "Woe to him who amasses what is not his -- how much longer? -- and loads himself with goods taken in pledge." 7 Won't your creditors suddenly arise, and those who disturb you wake up? Then you will become spoil for them.
New Living Translation

Chapter 2

6 'But soon their captives will taunt them. They will mock them, saying, 'What sorrow awaits you thieves! Now you will get what you deserve! You've become rich by extortion, but how much longer can this go on?' 7 Suddenly, your debtors will take action. They will turn on you and take all you have, while you stand trembling and helpless.
English Standard Version
