Week 34 (Book 7): The Ox is Saying

The Ox is saying,

Remember the wonders that He has wrought
His miracles, and the judgments of His mouth
When the children of Israel saw, they said to one another, "It is manna"
Because they did not know what it was

And your palate is like the best wine, 
That glides down smoothly to my beloved,
May the heart of those who seek the Lord rejoice
Search for the Lord and His might 

Seek His countenance always
Making the lips of the sleeping speak
Glory in His holy Name; And Moses said to them
It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat

This is the thing that the Lord has commanded
I will not abrogate My covenant
Nor change that which has issued from My lips
Is it not stored up with Me, sealed up in My treasuries?

Then Moses and the Children of Israel sang this song to G-d
And they said, "I shall sing to G-d, for He has triumphed
He has thrown the horse and its rider into the sea"
He makes my feet like hinds; And sets me upon my high places

Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity
An omer for each person, according to the number of persons
Each one for those in his tent you shall take

Water he requested, (but) milk she gave him
In a lordly bowl she brought him cream
The Lord kills and makes alive
He brings down to the grave and raises up
