Week 22 (Book 7): The Giant Sea Creatures Are Saying

The Giant Sea Creatures are saying:


Praise G-d from the land, the giant sea creatures and all the depths.

For a fire blazed in My wrath, and burned to the lowest depths.

It consumed the land and its produce, setting aflame the foundations of mountains.

And the Lord brought the waters of the sea back upon them


For I have kept the ways of the Lord and have not wickedly departed from my G-d. 

And the children of Israel walked on dry land in the midst of the sea

But Hannah did not go up, for she said to her husband:

Until the child is weaned, then I shall bring him


I remember G-d and I stir; I speak and my spirit becomes faint, forever.

And he shall appear before the Lord, and abide there forever.

No enemy will exact from him, neither will an unjust person afflict him.  

My beloved stretched forth his hand from the hole, and my insides stirred because of him.


"I have taken off my tunic; how can I put it on?

To hear the bleatings of the flocks?

I have bathed my feet; how can I soil them?"

At the divisions of Reuben, (there are) great searchings of heart.


I arose to open for my beloved, and my hands dripped with myrrh,

You held fast the awakenings of my eyes; I throb and I do not speak.

And my fingers with flowing myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.

I think of days of yore, ancient years.
