Week 46 (Book 7): The Prolific Creeping Creatures Are Saying

The Prolific Creeping Creatures are saying: 

We have a little sister who has no breasts
What shall we do for our sister on the day she is spoken for?
Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the recesses of your house 
Your children like olive shoots around your table

So that you may command your children
To observe to do all the words of this Torah 
And Samuel was serving before the Lord
Being a lad girded with a linen robe

The people thirsted there for water, 
And the people complained against Moses
Both they and their camels without number
And they came into the land to destroy it 
 
And they said, "Why have you brought us up from Egypt
To make me and my children and my livestock die of thirst?"
The strangers will wilt, 
And become lame from their bondage

And they encamped against them, 
And they destroyed the produce of the earth 
Until you come to Gaza
Moses cried out to the Lord 

Saying, "What shall I do for this people?" 
Just a little longer and they will stone me!  
They would leave no sustenance in Israel 
Neither sheep, nor ox, nor donkey
 
He spread out a cloud for shelter
And fire to illuminate the night
For they and their cattle came up, and their tents
And they came as numerous as locusts

They asked, and He brought quails, and the bread of heaven sated them
He opened a rock and water flowed; in the deserts ran rivers
And he said to them, set your hearts to all of the words
Which I bear witness for you this day.
