Week 39: The Bear Is Saying

Week 39: The Bear is saying,

You, who sit in the gardens 
The friends hearken to your voice; Let me hear.
Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, 
The village that Kedar inhabits 

And Moses said, "Eat it today, 
For today is a Sabbath to the Lord; 
Today you will not find it in the field." 
Let the inhabitants of the rock sing, 

Let them shout from the peaks of the mountains. 

Flee, my beloved, and liken yourself to a gazelle 
Or to a fawn of the hinds on the spice mountains.
And Elkanah went to Ramah, to his house

Let them give glory to G-d and tell of His praise in the islands.

See now that it is I! I am the One, 
And there is no G-d like Me! 
My vineyard, which is mine, is before me; 

You, O Solomon, shall have the thousand, 

And those who watch its fruit, two hundred.
Six days you shall gather it, 
But on the seventh day, the Sabbath, on it there will be none. 

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.
