Dhammapada 17 [Khuddaka Nikaya]

I- Yamakavagga, The Pairs
12- Devadatta Vatthu
Idha tappati pecca tappati,
papakari ubhayattha tappati;
papam me katanti tappati,
bhiyyo tappati duggatim gato.
17: Here he is tormented, hereafter he is tormented; the evil-doer is tormented in both existences. He is tormented, and he laments: "Evil have I done." He is even more tormented when he is reborn in one of the lower worlds (Apaya).
