The Wild Animals say (Song(s) for Week 35)

The Wild Animals say,

One thing have I sworn by My holiness,
That I will not fail David.
He trains my hand for war,
So that mine arms do bend a brass bow.

She put forth her hand to the pin,
And her right hand to strike the weary;
For the appointed day of their reckoning is near,
And what is destined for them hastens.

The Lord impoverishes and makes rich.
He humbles; He also exalts.
Vengeance is poised with Me,
And it will pay at the time their foot stumbles.

O, that you were like my brother,
Who sucked my mother's breasts!
I would find you outside, I would kiss you,
And they would not despise me.

And the children of Israel did so
They gathered, both the one who gathered much
And the one who gathered little.
And they measured [it] with an omer.

I would lead you, I would bring you to the house of my mother,
Who instructed me; I would give you to drink some spiced wine,
Of the juice of my pomegranate. And whoever gathered much
Did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less;

Each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered.
The pots [of figs] have given forth [their] fragrance,
And on our doorways are all manner of sweet fruits,
Both new and old, which I have hidden away for you, my beloved.

Blessed is the One Who is good and bestows good.
The seed of Abraham His servant, the children of Jacob, His chosen ones.
He is the Lord our G-d; throughout all the earth are His judgments.
He remembered His covenant forever, the word He had commanded to the thousandth generation,
