Nehemiah 9

Interesting unique word in verse 19, בהדרך. The form is contrary to the grammars which say that prefixed בח should elide to ב. It surprises me still how often the Hebrew word order can be maintained in English without awkwardness. I try to maintain the Hebrew word order so that the reading can be used for the underlay of the music.

Another common use of ב is with (v 1), against, to (v 10), but its most common use is in (v 1). Sometimes we need in when it is not there (v 12). Sometimes I render it as given in its common form (v 26) even if an alternative might be less awkward. Sometimes it needs no translation because the Hebrew verb is used commonly with ב following and in English we would not need the preposition (v 7). Because I don't want to enable speed reading. I would rather force a halt so that I rethink and rephrase and ponder and consider.

Verse 29 אֲשֶׁר־יַעֲשֶׂ֥ה אָדָ֖ם וְחָיָ֣ה בָהֶ֑ם is very close, probably derived perhaps through Ezekiel (20.11, 13, 21, 37.3) from Leviticus 18.5 יַעֲשֶׂ֥ה אֹתָ֛ם הָאָדָ֖ם וָחַ֣י בָּהֶ֑ם.

This is a prayer in the form of a creed, rehearsing the corporate history, and declaring self guilty in all respects.

Nehemiah 9 Fn Min Max Syll
וּבְיוֹם֩ עֶשְׂרִ֨ים וְאַרְבָּעָ֜ה לַחֹ֣דֶשׁ הַזֶּ֗ה נֶאֶסְפ֤וּ בְנֵֽי־יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ בְּצ֣וֹם וּבְשַׂקִּ֔ים וַאֲדָמָ֖ה עֲלֵיהֶֽם 1 And on the twenty fourth day of this month, the children of Israel gathered with fasting, and in sackcloth, and debris from the ground upon them. 3e 4C 33
וַיִּבָּֽדְלוּ֙ זֶ֣רַע יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל מִכֹּ֖ל בְּנֵ֣י נֵכָ֑ר
וַיַּעַמְד֗וּ וַיִּתְוַדּוּ֙ עַל־חַטֹּ֣אתֵיהֶ֔ם וַעֲוֺנ֖וֹת אֲבֹתֵיהֶֽם
2 And the seed of Israel differentiated themselves among all the children of the alien,
and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their ancestors.
3e 4B 15
21
וַיָּק֙וּמוּ֙ עַל־עָמְדָ֔ם וַֽיִּקְרְא֗וּ בְּסֵ֨פֶר תּוֹרַ֧ת יְהוָ֛ה אֱלֹהֵיהֶ֖ם רְבִעִ֣ית הַיּ֑וֹם
וּרְבִעִית֙ מִתְוַדִּ֣ים וּמִֽשְׁתַּחֲוִ֔ים לַיהוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֵיהֶֽם
3 And they arose in their standing, and they recited in the book of the instruction of Yahweh their God a fourth part of the day,
and a fourth part they confessed and prostrated themselves to Yahweh their God.
3c 4B 27
17
וַיָּ֜קָם עַֽל־מַֽעֲלֵ֣ה הַלְוִיִּ֗ם יֵשׁ֨וּעַ וּבָנִ֜י קַדְמִיאֵ֧ל שְׁבַנְיָ֛ה בֻּנִּ֥י שֵׁרֵבְיָ֖ה בָּנִ֣י כְנָ֑נִי
וַֽיִּזְעֲקוּ֙ בְּק֣וֹל גָּד֔וֹל אֶל־יְהוָ֖ה אֱלֹהֵיהֶֽם
4 And the Levites arose on the stairs, Jeshua, and the children of Qadmiel, Shebanyah, Bunni, Sherebiah, the children of Kenani,
and they appealed with a great voice to Yahweh their God.
3c 4B 32
15
וַיֹּאמְר֣וּ הַלְוִיִּ֡ם יֵשׁ֣וּעַ וְ֠קַדְמִיאֵל בָּנִ֨י חֲשַׁבְנְיָ֜ה שֵׁרֵֽבְיָ֤ה הֽוֹדִיָּה֙ שְׁבַנְיָ֣ה פְתַֽחְיָ֔ה ק֗וּמוּ בָּרֲכוּ֙ אֶת־יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹֽהֵיכֶ֔ם מִן־הָעוֹלָ֖ם עַד־הָעוֹלָ֑ם
וִיבָֽרְכוּ֙ שֵׁ֣ם כְּבוֹדֶ֔ךָ וּמְרוֹמַ֥ם עַל־כָּל־בְּרָכָ֖ה וּתְהִלָּֽה
5 And the Levites said, (Jeshua, and Qadmiel, Bunni, Xashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodyah, Shebanyah, Petaxiah), Arise, bless Yahweh your God from the everlasting to the everlasting,
and let them bless the name of your glory and let it be celebrated over all blessing and praise.
3e 4C 51
19
אַתָּה־ה֣וּא יְהוָה֮ לְבַדֶּךָ֒ אַתָּ֣ה עָשִׂ֡יתָ אֶֽת־הַשָּׁמַיִם֩ שְׁמֵ֨י הַשָּׁמַ֜יִם וְכָל־צְבָאָ֗ם הָאָ֜רֶץ וְכָל־אֲשֶׁ֤ר עָלֶ֙יהָ֙ הַיַּמִּים֙ וְכָל־אֲשֶׁ֣ר בָּהֶ֔ם וְאַתָּ֖ה מְחַיֶּ֣ה אֶת־כֻּלָּ֑ם
וּצְבָ֥א הַשָּׁמַ֖יִם לְךָ֥ מִשְׁתַּחֲוִֽים
6 You are he, Yahweh, you only. You yourself have made the heavens, the heaven of the heavens, and all their hosts, the earth, and all that is on it, the seas, and all that is in them, and you revive them all.
And the host of the heavens worship you.
3e 4C 56
11
אַתָּה־הוּא֙ יְהוָ֣ה הָאֱלֹהִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֤ר בָּחַ֙רְתָּ֙ בְּאַבְרָ֔ם וְהוֹצֵאת֖וֹ מֵא֣וּר כַּשְׂדִּ֑ים
וְשַׂ֥מְתָּ שְּׁמ֖וֹ אַבְרָהָֽם
7 You are he, Yahweh, the God who chose in Abram, and brought him out from Ur of Chaldea,
and set his name as Abraham.
3e 4C 25
8
וּמָצָ֣אתָ אֶת־לְבָבוֹ֮ נֶאֱמָ֣ן לְפָנֶיךָ֒ וְכָר֨וֹת עִמּ֜וֹ הַבְּרִ֗ית לָתֵ֡ת אֶת־אֶרֶץ֩ הַכְּנַעֲנִ֨י הַחִתִּ֜י הָאֱמֹרִ֧י וְהַפְּרִזִּ֛י וְהַיְבוּסִ֥י וְהַגִּרְגָּשִׁ֖י לָתֵ֣ת לְזַרְע֑וֹ
וַתָּ֙קֶם֙ אֶת־דְּבָרֶ֔יךָ כִּ֥י צַדִּ֖יק אָֽתָּה
8 And you found his heart faithful before you and you cut with him the covenant to give the land of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, and the Perizzite, and the Jebusite, and the Girgashite, to give for his seed,
and you have placed your words for a righteous one you are.
3c 4B 56
13
וַתֵּ֛רֶא אֶת־עֳנִ֥י אֲבֹתֵ֖ינוּ בְּמִצְרָ֑יִם
וְאֶת־זַעֲקָתָ֥ם שָׁמַ֖עְתָּ עַל־יַם־סֽוּף
9 And you saw the impoverishment of our ancestors in Egypt,
and their appeal you heard at the sea of reeds.
3d 4A 14
12
וַ֠תִּתֵּן אֹתֹ֨ת וּמֹֽפְתִ֜ים בְּפַרְעֹ֤ה וּבְכָל־עֲבָדָיו֙ וּבְכָל־עַ֣ם אַרְצ֔וֹ כִּ֣י יָדַ֔עְתָּ כִּ֥י הֵזִ֖ידוּ עֲלֵיהֶ֑ם
וַתַּֽעַשׂ־לְךָ֥ שֵׁ֖ם כְּהַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה
10 ~ And you gave signs and portents to Pharaoh and to all his servants, and to all the people of his land, for you knew that they acted presumptuously over them,
and you made yourself a name as at this day.
3e 4C 32
11
וְהַיָּם֙ בָּקַ֣עְתָּ לִפְנֵיהֶ֔ם וַיַּֽעַבְר֥וּ בְתוֹךְ־הַיָּ֖ם בַּיַּבָּשָׁ֑ה
וְֽאֶת־רֹ֨דְפֵיהֶ֜ם הִשְׁלַ֧כְתָּ בִמְצוֹלֹ֛ת כְּמוֹ־אֶ֖בֶן בְּמַ֥יִם עַזִּֽים
11 And the sea you split before them, and they crossed over in the midst of the sea on dry land,
and their pursuers you cast into the depths as a stone in the strong waters.
3c 4B 21
18
וּבְעַמּ֣וּד עָנָ֔ן הִנְחִיתָ֖ם יוֹמָ֑ם
וּבְעַמּ֥וּד אֵשׁ֙ לַ֔יְלָה לְהָאִ֣יר לָהֶ֔ם אֶת־הַדֶּ֖רֶךְ אֲשֶׁ֥ר יֵֽלְכוּ־בָֽהּ
12 And in a pillar of cloud you guided them by day,
and in a pillar of fire by night, to give light to them in the way that they should walk.
3e 4B 10
20
וְעַ֤ל הַר־סִינַי֙ יָרַ֔דְתָּ וְדַבֵּ֥ר עִמָּהֶ֖ם מִשָּׁמָ֑יִם
וַתִּתֵּ֨ן לָהֶ֜ם מִשְׁפָּטִ֤ים יְשָׁרִים֙ וְתוֹר֣וֹת אֱמֶ֔ת חֻקִּ֥ים וּמִצְוֺ֖ת טוֹבִֽים
13 And on mount Sinai you came down and spoke with them from the heavens,
and you gave them upright judgments and true instruction, statutes and commandments that are good.
3e 4C 18
23
וְאֶת־שַׁבַּ֥ת קָדְשְׁךָ֖ הוֹדַ֣עַתָ לָהֶ֑ם
וּמִצְו֤וֹת וְחֻקִּים֙ וְתוֹרָ֔ה צִוִּ֣יתָ לָהֶ֔ם בְּיַ֖ד מֹשֶׁ֥ה עַבְדֶּֽךָ
14 And your holy Sabbath you made known to them,
and commandments, and statutes, and instructions, you commanded them by the hand of Moses your servant.
3e 4C 13
21
וְ֠לֶחֶם מִשָּׁמַ֜יִם נָתַ֤תָּה לָהֶם֙ לִרְעָבָ֔ם וּמַ֗יִם מִסֶּ֛לַע הוֹצֵ֥אתָ לָהֶ֖ם לִצְמָאָ֑ם
וַתֹּ֣אמֶר לָהֶ֗ם לָבוֹא֙ לָרֶ֣שֶׁת אֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁר־נָשָׂ֥אתָ אֶת־יָדְךָ֖ לָתֵ֥ת לָהֶֽם
15 ~ And bread from the heavens you gave for them for their hunger, and water from a cliff you brought forth for them for their thirst.
And you said to them to enter to possess the land that you had lifted up your hand to give them.
3d 4C 27
26
וְהֵ֥ם וַאֲבֹתֵ֖ינוּ הֵזִ֑ידוּ
וַיַּקְשׁוּ֙ אֶת־עָרְפָּ֔ם וְלֹ֥א שָׁמְע֖וּ אֶל־מִצְוֺתֶֽיךָ
16 But they and our ancestors were presumptuous,
and they hardened their scruffs, and they did not hear your commandments.
3e 4A 10
15
וַיְמָאֲנ֣וּ לִשְׁמֹ֗עַ וְלֹא־זָכְר֤וּ נִפְלְאֹתֶ֙יךָ֙ אֲשֶׁ֣ר עָשִׂ֣יתָ עִמָּהֶ֔ם וַיַּקְשׁוּ֙ אֶת־עָרְפָּ֔ם וַיִּתְּנוּ־רֹ֛אשׁ לָשׁ֥וּב לְעַבְדֻתָ֖ם בְּמִרְיָ֑ם
וְאַתָּה֩ אֱל֨וֹהַּ סְלִיח֜וֹת חַנּ֧וּן וְרַח֛וּם אֶֽרֶךְ־אַפַּ֥יִם וְרַב־חֶ֖סֶד וְלֹ֥א עֲזַבְתָּֽם
17 And they would not hear, and they did not remember your wonders that you did with them, but they hardened their scruffs, and they put forth a head to return to their service in their provocation.
But you are the God of pardons, gracious, and compassionate, slow to anger, and of abundant kindness, and you did not forsake them.
3c 4C 43
27
אַ֗ף כִּֽי־עָשׂ֤וּ לָהֶם֙ עֵ֣גֶל מַסֵּכָ֔ה וַיֹּ֣אמְר֔וּ זֶ֣ה אֱלֹהֶ֔יךָ אֲשֶׁ֥ר הֶעֶלְךָ֖ מִמִּצְרָ֑יִם
וַֽיַּעֲשׂ֔וּ נֶאָצ֖וֹת גְּדֹלֽוֹת
18 ~ Indeed, for they made for themselves a calf, a molten image, and said, This is your God who brought you up from Egypt.
And they undertook great blasphemies.
3e 4C 27
10
וְאַתָּה֙ בְּרַחֲמֶ֣יךָ הָֽרַבִּ֔ים לֹ֥א עֲזַבְתָּ֖ם בַּמִּדְבָּ֑ר
אֶת־עַמּ֣וּד הֶ֠עָנָן לֹא־סָ֨ר מֵעֲלֵיהֶ֤ם בְּיוֹמָם֙ לְהַנְחֹתָ֣ם בְּהַדֶּ֔רֶךְ וְאֶת־עַמּ֨וּד הָאֵ֤שׁ בְּלַ֙יְלָה֙ לְהָאִ֣יר לָהֶ֔ם וְאֶת־הַדֶּ֖רֶךְ אֲשֶׁ֥ר יֵֽלְכוּ־בָֽהּ
19 But you, in your many compassions, you did not forsake them in the wilderness.
The pillar of cloud did not turn aside from over them by day to guide them in the way, nor the pillar of the fire by night as light for them, and the way that they should walk in.
3e 4C 18
47
וְרוּחֲךָ֨ הַטּוֹבָ֔ה נָתַ֖תָּ לְהַשְׂכִּילָ֑ם
וּמַנְךָ֙ לֹא־מָנַ֣עְתָּ מִפִּיהֶ֔ם וּמַ֛יִם נָתַ֥תָּה לָהֶ֖ם לִצְמָאָֽם
20 And your good spirit you gave to give them insight,
and your manna you did not withhold from their mouth, and water you gave for them for their thirst.
3d 4B 14
19
וְאַרְבָּעִ֥ים שָׁנָ֛ה כִּלְכַּלְתָּ֥ם בַּמִּדְבָּ֖ר לֹ֣א חָסֵ֑רוּ
שַׂלְמֹֽתֵיהֶם֙ לֹ֣א בָל֔וּ וְרַגְלֵיהֶ֖ם לֹ֥א בָצֵֽקוּ
21 And forty years you nourished them in the wilderness. They lacked nothing.
Their apparel not did wear out, and their feet did not blister.
3d 4B 16
15
וַתִּתֵּ֨ן לָהֶ֤ם מַמְלָכוֹת֙ וַעֲמָמִ֔ים וַֽתַּחְלְקֵ֖ם לְפֵאָ֑ה
וַיִּֽירְשׁ֞וּ אֶת־אֶ֣רֶץ סִיח֗וֹן וְאֶת־אֶ֙רֶץ֙ מֶ֣לֶךְ חֶשְׁבּ֔וֹן וְאֶת־אֶ֖רֶץ ע֥וֹג מֶֽלֶךְ־הַבָּשָֽׁן
22 And you gave them kingdoms, and peoples, and divisions into quarters,
and they possessed the land of Sihon, and the land of the king of Heshbon, and the land of Og, king of Bashan.
3e 4C 19
26
וּבְנֵיהֶ֣ם הִרְבִּ֔יתָ כְּכֹכְבֵ֖י הַשָּׁמָ֑יִם
וַתְּבִיאֵם֙ אֶל־הָאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁר־אָמַ֥רְתָּ לַאֲבֹתֵיהֶ֖ם לָב֥וֹא לָרָֽשֶׁת
23 And their children you have increased as the stars of the heavens,
and you brought them to the land which you had promised to their ancestors to enter to possess.
3e 4B 13
22
וַיָּבֹ֤אוּ הַבָּנִים֙ וַיִּֽירְשׁ֣וּ אֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ וַתַּכְנַ֨ע לִפְנֵיהֶ֜ם אֶת־יֹשְׁבֵ֤י הָאָ֙רֶץ֙ הַכְּנַ֣עֲנִ֔ים וַֽתִּתְּנֵ֖ם בְּיָדָ֑ם
וְאֶת־מַלְכֵיהֶם֙ וְאֶת־עַֽמְמֵ֣י הָאָ֔רֶץ לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת בָּהֶ֖ם כִּרְצוֹנָֽם
24 And the children entered and they possessed the land, and you subdued before them the inhabitants of the land, the Canaanites, and you gave them into their hands,
both their kings and the peoples of the land, to do with them according as they found acceptance with them.
3e 4C 35
20
וַֽיִּלְכְּד֞וּ עָרִ֣ים בְּצֻרוֹת֮ וַאֲדָמָ֣ה שְׁמֵנָה֒ וַיִּֽירְשׁ֡וּ בָּתִּ֣ים מְלֵֽאִים־כָּל־ט֠וּב בֹּר֨וֹת חֲצוּבִ֜ים כְּרָמִ֧ים וְזֵיתִ֛ים וְעֵ֥ץ מַאֲכָ֖ל לָרֹ֑ב
וַיֹּאכְל֤וּ וַֽיִּשְׂבְּעוּ֙ וַיַּשְׁמִ֔ינוּ וַיִּֽתְעַדְּנ֖וּ בְּטוּבְךָ֥ הַגָּדֽוֹל
25 And they conquered enclosed cities and a stout ground, and they possessed houses full of all good, hewn cisterns, vineyards and olive trees, and trees for food in abundance,
and they ate and were sated, and became stout, and enthralled themselves in great goodness.
3c 4C 44
21
וַיַּמְר֨וּ וַֽיִּמְרְד֜וּ בָּ֗ךְ וַיַּשְׁלִ֤כוּ אֶת־תּוֹרָֽתְךָ֙ אַחֲרֵ֣י גַוָּ֔ם וְאֶת־נְבִיאֶ֣יךָ הָרָ֔גוּ אֲשֶׁר־הֵעִ֥ידוּ בָ֖ם לַהֲשִׁיבָ֣ם אֵלֶ֑יךָ
וַֽיַּעֲשׂ֔וּ נֶאָצ֖וֹת גְּדוֹלֹֽת
26 And they were provocative, and they mutinied in you, and they flung your instruction behind their backs, and your prophets they slew, who witnessed in them to return them to you,
and they undertook great blasphemies.
3e 4C 43
10
וַֽתִּתְּנֵם֙ בְּיַ֣ד צָֽרֵיהֶ֔ם וַיָּצֵ֖רוּ לָהֶ֑ם
וּבְעֵ֤ת צָֽרָתָם֙ יִצְעֲק֣וּ אֵלֶ֔יךָ וְאַתָּה֙ מִשָּׁמַ֣יִם תִּשְׁמָ֔ע וּֽכְרַחֲמֶ֣יךָ הָֽרַבִּ֗ים תִּתֵּ֤ן לָהֶם֙ מֽוֹשִׁיעִ֔ים וְיוֹשִׁיע֖וּם מִיַּ֥ד צָרֵיהֶֽם
27 And you gave them into the hand of their adversaries,
and they were trouble to them, and in the time of their trouble, they cried out to you, and from the heavens you yourself heard, and according to your many compassions, you gave them saviours, and they saved them from the hand of their adversaries.
3e 4C 14
43
וּכְנ֣וֹחַ לָהֶ֔ם יָשׁ֕וּבוּ לַעֲשׂ֥וֹת רַ֖ע לְפָנֶ֑יךָ
וַתַּֽעַזְבֵ֞ם בְּיַ֤ד אֹֽיְבֵיהֶם֙ וַיִּרְדּ֣וּ בָהֶ֔ם וַיָּשׁ֙וּבוּ֙ וַיִּזְעָק֔וּךָ וְאַתָּ֞ה מִשָּׁמַ֧יִם תִּשְׁמַ֛ע וְתַצִּילֵ֥ם כְּֽרַחֲמֶ֖יךָ רַבּ֥וֹת עִתִּֽים
28 But as they had rest, they returned to do evil before you,
and you forsook them into the hand of their enemies, and they ruled them, and they returned, and they appealed, and from the heavens you yourself heard, and you delivered, according to your compassions, many times.
3c 4C 16
44
וַתָּ֨עַד בָּהֶ֜ם לַהֲשִׁיבָ֣ם אֶל־תּוֹרָתֶ֗ךָ וְהֵ֨מָּה הֵזִ֜ידוּ וְלֹא־שָׁמְע֤וּ לְמִצְוֺתֶ֙יךָ֙ וּבְמִשְׁפָּטֶ֣יךָ חָֽטְאוּ־בָ֔ם אֲשֶׁר־יַעֲשֶׂ֥ה אָדָ֖ם וְחָיָ֣ה בָהֶ֑ם
וַיִּתְּנ֤וּ כָתֵף֙ סוֹרֶ֔רֶת וְעָרְפָּ֥ם הִקְשׁ֖וּ וְלֹ֥א שָׁמֵֽעוּ
29 And you testified against them to return them to your instruction, but they acted presumptuously and they did not hear your commandments, but they sinned against your judgments, (that a human does so he will live in them),
and they put forth a shoulder, turned aside, and their scruff they hardened, and they did not hear.
3e 4C 49

וַתִּמְשֹׁ֤ךְ עֲלֵיהֶם֙ שָׁנִ֣ים רַבּ֔וֹת וַתָּ֨עַד בָּ֧ם בְּרוּחֲךָ֛ בְּיַד־נְבִיאֶ֖יךָ וְלֹ֣א הֶאֱזִ֑ינוּ
וַֽתִּתְּנֵ֔ם בְּיַ֖ד עַמֵּ֥י הָאֲרָצֹֽת
30 And you drew them out many years and your spirit testified in them by the hand of your prophets, but they did not give ear.
And you gave them into the hand of the people of the lands.
3c 4C 30

וּֽבְרַחֲמֶ֧יךָ הָרַבִּ֛ים לֹֽא־עֲשִׂיתָ֥ם כָּלָ֖ה וְלֹ֣א עֲזַבְתָּ֑ם
כִּ֛י אֵֽל־חַנּ֥וּן וְרַח֖וּם אָֽתָּה
31 But in your many compassions, you did not undertake to consume them, and you did not forsake them,
for you are a God gracious and compassionate.

32 And now, our God, the One, the Great, the Valiant, and the Fearful, who keeps the covenant and the kindness, let not be too little before you, all the exasperation that has found us, for our kings, for our chiefs, and for our priests, and for our prophets, and for our ancestors, and for all your people,
from the days of the kings of Ashur to this day.

33 And you are a righteous one in all that has come over us,
because truth you have done, and ourselves, we are wicked.

34 And our kings, our chiefs, our priests, and our ancestors, they did not do your instruction,
and they did not attend to your commandments, and your testimonies with which you testified against them.
3e 4C 25

וְהֵ֣ם בְּמַלְכוּתָם֩ וּבְטוּבְךָ֨ הָרָ֜ב אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֣תָּ לָהֶ֗ם וּבְאֶ֨רֶץ הָרְחָבָ֧ה וְהַשְּׁמֵנָ֛ה אֲשֶׁר־נָתַ֥תָּ לִפְנֵיהֶ֖ם לֹ֣א עֲבָד֑וּךָ
וְֽלֹא־שָׁ֔בוּ מִמַּֽעַלְלֵיהֶ֖ם הָרָעִֽים
35 And they in their kingdoms, and in your abundant good that you gave to them, and in the land, broad and stout, that you gave before them, they did not serve you,
and they did not turn from their practices of evil.

36 Behold, we are today servants, and the land that you gave to our ancestors, to eat its fruit, and its good,
behold, we are servants on it.

37 And its income is increased, to the kings that you gave over us in our sins,
and over our bodies they govern, and with our cattle at their bidding, and in great straits we are.
