Let them give glory to G-d and tell of His praise in the islands.
And Elkanah went to Ramah, to his house
I would find you outside, I would kiss you, and they would not despise me.
And the child was serving the Lord before Eli the priest.
They afflicted his foot with fetters;
His soul was placed in irons.
You abrogated the covenant of Your servant;
Why is his chariot late in coming?
Why tarry the strides of his chariots?
I cause death and grant life.
I strike, but I heal,
And no one can rescue from My Hand!
And I have consumed them,
And I have crushed them that they cannot rise;
Yes, they are fallen under my feet.
You profaned his crown to the ground.
Until His word came, the saying of the Lord purified him.
A king sent and released him,
A ruler of peoples [sent] and loosed his bonds.
