Week 37 (Book 7): The Elephant Is Saying

The Elephant Is Saying

You have enlarged my step[s] beneath me 
And my ankles have not slipped
How great are your works, G-d 
Your thoughts are tremendously deep

Let us arise early to the vineyards; 
Let us see whether the vine has blossomed
They gathered it morning by morning 
For not by strength will man prevail.

And they walked from nation to nation, 
From one kingdom to another people.
A double portion of bread, two omers for one, 
And all the princes of the community came and reported to Moses.

Each one according to his eating capacity 
And [when] the sun grew hot, it melted
Then He will say, "Where is their deity 
The rock in which they trusted?”

At her feet he sank, fell, lay; 
At her feet he sank (and) fell;
The feet of His pious ones He will guard, 
And the wicked shall be cut off in darkness 

The tiny grapes have developed, 
The pomegranates have lost their flowers
Like the moon, which is established forever, 
And it is a witness in the sky, eternally true. 

When they were few in number, hardly dwelling in it.
It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered 
He let no man oppress them, and He reproved kings on their account.
There I will give you my love.
