Week 18: The Grasshopper is Saying (Book 7)

 The Grasshopper is saying 


I lift my eyes up to the mountains, 

Where shall my help come from?

For our protectors turn to the Lord, 

And our king to the Holy One of Israel.


You shall look from the peak of Amanah, 

From the peak of Senir and Hermon, 

From the lions' dens, from mountains of leopards.

[Because of] his might, I wait for You, for G-d is my stronghold. 


The G-d of my kindness will anticipate my [need]; 

G-d will show me [the downfall] of my watchful foes. 

With the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, 

Until Your people cross over, O Lord,


He delivered me from my mighty enemy; 

From them that hated me; for they were too powerful for me. 

But You, Lord, You laugh at them; 

You mock all nations. 


You forgot the [Mighty] Rock Who bore you; 

You forgot the G-d Who delivered you. 

Out of Ephraim, whose root was against Amalek; 

After you (will be) Benjamin with your abaters;


You have captivated my heart, my sister, [my] bride; 

You have captivated my heart with one of your eyes, 

With one link of your necklaces.

And she said: May your bondswoman find favor in your eyes; 


You are all fair, my beloved, and there is no blemish in you.

With me from Lebanon, my bride, with me from Lebanon shall you come; 

And the woman went on her way and ate, 

And her face was not (sad) anymore.
