Their wealth will become plunder
and their houses a desolation.
Yes, they will build houses, but will not inhabit them.
They will plant vineyards, but will not drink their wine.” Bible see other translations

“Their wealth will become plunder.” On the day of God’s wrath the people who had treated God as a powerless God and had said that He would not do good or evil will find out that they are the ones who are powerless; powerless to save themselves and the things that they coveted from the consequences of their sin.
