The Gazelle Is Saying

The Gazelle Is Saying

His left hand would be under my head, 
And his right hand would embrace me.
And I shall sing of Your strength 
I shall rejoice of Your kindness in the morning

For You were a refuge to me, 
and a hiding place on the day of my oppression.
And You have given me the shield of Your salvation; 
And You have increased Your humility for me. 

He lifts the poor from the dust; 
From the dunghill, He raises the pauper, 
When the Lord will judge His people, 
And will reconsider His servants, 

To seat them with princes, 
And a seat of honor He causes them to inherit, 
When He sees that the power is increasing, 
And none is controlled or strengthened. 

And Moses said to them, 
Let no one leave over [any] of it until morning. 
For the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, 
And He placed the world upon them.

But [some] men did not obey Moses
And left over [some] of it until morning, 
I adjure you, O daughters of Jerusalem; 
Why should you awaken, 

And why should you arouse 
The love until it is desirous?
And it bred worms and became putrid, 
And Moses became angry with them.     

There your mother was in travail with you; 
There she that bore you was in travail."
She struck Sisera, pierced his head, 
And wounded and penetrated his temple.

Who is this coming up from the desert, 
Embracing her beloved? 
The covenant which He made with Abraham, 
And His oath to Isaac. 

Under the apple tree I aroused you; 
He established it for Jacob as a statute, 
For Israel as an everlasting Covenant, 
Stating, "To you I shall give the land of Canaan”

His seed will endure forever 
And his throne will be 
As the sun before Me
The portion of your inheritance
