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

Should a man give all the property 
Of his house for love
They would despise him
They gathered it morning by morning 

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 

For not by strength will man prevail.
For love is as strong as death, 
Zeal is as strong as the grave; 
Its coals are coals of fire of a great flame!

When they were few in number, hardly dwelling in it.
It came to pass on the sixth day that they gathered 
A double portion of bread, two omers for one, 
And all the princes of the community came and reported to Moses.

Many waters cannot quench the love, 
Nor can rivers flood it 
Like the moon, which is established forever, 
And it is a witness in the sky, eternally true. 

And they walked from nation to nation, 
From one kingdom to another people.
We have a little sister who has no breasts; 
What shall we do for our sister on the day she is spoken for?

Place me like a seal on your heart, 
Like a seal on your arm, 
He let no man oppress them, 
And He reproved kings on their account.
