The Wolf Is Saying

The Wolf Is Saying

You breached all his fences 
You made his fortifications a ruin  
For every matter of iniquity
For the ox, the donkey, the lamb, the garment 

For every lost item which he says, "This is it," 
The matter of both of them 
Shall come before the judge
To bind up his princes with his soul 

And he made his elders wise
He who the judge finds guilty 
Shall pay double to the other
A song of ascents about Solomon

For You have girded me with strength for the battle 
You have subdued under me those that rose up against me 
If the Lord will not guard a city 
[Its] watcher keeps his vigil in vain

It came about that on the seventh day 
The people went out to gather, but they did not find 
It is futile for you who arise early 
Who sit late, who eat the bread of toil 

The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse 
To observe My commandments and My teachings? 
The wisest of her princesses answer her 
She too returns answers to herself

For I raise up My hand to heaven 
And say, 'As I live forever.’ 
Israel came to Egypt and Jacob 
Sojourned in the land of Ham

He made him the master of his household 
And the ruler over all his possessions

So will the Lord give to one
Who banishes sleep from himself

Now the sons of Eli were base men 
They knew not the Lord  
If the Lord will not build a house 
Its builders have toiled at it in vain
