The Cat Is Saying

The Cat Is Saying

I have pursued my enemies and overtaken them
And I did not return until they were destroyed.
Sing out praise, O you nations, for His people!
For He will avenge the blood of His servants

Inflict revenge upon His adversaries,
And appease His land [and] His people.
Their land swarmed with frogs
In the rooms of their monarchs.

And [they] would say to the man who slaughtered,
'Give meat to roast for the priest,
And he will not take from you cooked meat, but raw.  
Dyed garments of embroidery for the neck of the spoiler.'      

If you rise up like a vulture, and place your nest among the stars,
From there I shall bring you down, says G-d.
Sing to the Lord, His pious ones,
And give thanks to His holy name.

You even turned back the sharp edge of his sword,
And You did not raise him up in battle.
So may perish all Your enemies, O Lord;
But they that love Him [are] as the sun when it goes forth in its might.

Then I ground them as the dust of the earth,
As the mud of the streets I did tread upon them, I did stamp them down.
O Lord, You have brought my soul from the grave;
You have revived me from my descent into the Pit.

He commanded and a mixture of noxious beasts came,
Lice throughout all their boundary.
Also, before they would make the fat smoke,
And the servant of the priest would come,

And Moses said to Aaron, take one jug and put there an omerful of manna,
And deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations.
He made their rains into hail, flaming fire in their land.
For His wrath lasts but a moment; life results from His favor

As the Lord had commanded Moses,
Aaron deposited it before the testimony to be preserved.
In the evening, weeping may tarry,
But in the morning there is joyful singing.
