Day 142 The Song of Moses; part 3

“Adonai saw and was filled with scorn

At his sons and daughters’ provocation

He said, “I will hide my face from them

And see what will become of them,

For they are a perverse generation,

Untrustworthy children.


They aroused my jealousy with a non-god 

And provoked me with their vanities;

I will arouse their jealousy with a non-people

And provoke them with a vile nation.


“For my anger has been fired up.

It burns to the depths of Sh’ol,

Devouring the earth and it’s crops,

Kindling the very roots of the hills.

I will heap disasters on them

And use up all my arrows against them. 


Fatigued by hunger, they will be 

Consumed by fever and bitter defeat;

I will send them the fangs of wild beasts,

And the poison of reptiles crawling in the dust.

Outside, the sword makes parents childless;

Inside, there is panic. 

As young men and girls alike are slain,

Suckling and gray beards together.
