Week 47 (Book 7): The Snake is Saying

The Snake is saying,

I am mindful what my old age is; 
For what futility have You created all the sons of man? 
If she be a wall, we will build upon her a silver turret, 
And if she be a door, we will enclose her with cedar boards.

For it is not an empty thing for you, for it is your life, 
And through this thing, you will lengthen your days 
For He remembered His holy word with Abraham His servant.
And a small robe his mother would make for him, 

And the children of Israel cried to the Lord. 
Now it was when the children of Israel cried to the Lord concerning Midian,
When she ascended with her husband, to slaughter the sacrifice of the (festive) days.
And she would bring it up to him from appointed time to appointed time, 

G-d supports all the fallen, and straightens all the bent.
And take into your hand your staff, 
With which you struck the Nile, and go  
Upon the land to which you are crossing over the Jordan, to possess it.

And He took out His people with joy, 
His chosen ones with joyful singing.
And the Lord said to Moses, Pass before the people 
And take with you [some] of the elders of Israel, 

Moses did so before the eyes of the elders of Israel.   
And Israel was very impoverished because of Midian, 
And He gave them lands of nations, 
And they inherited the toil of kingdoms.

Behold, I shall stand there before you on the rock in Horeb, 
And you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink
The Lord lives, and blessed be my Rock; 
And exalted be the G-d, [who is] my rock of salvation.
