Wherefore, O God, hast thou cast off utterly? Shall thine anger smoke against the flock of thine own pasturing?
Yahweh will not be willing to forgive him, but, then, will the anger of Yahweh and his jealousy smoke against that man, and all the oath that is written in this scroll, shall settle down upon him, - and Yahweh wipe out his name from under the heavens;
So, we, thy people, and the sheep of thy pasture, will give thanks unto thee, to times age-abiding, - To generation after generation, will we recount thy praise.
For, he, is our God, And, we, are the people of his pasture, and the flock of his hand? To-day, if, to his voice, ye will hearken,
Know that, Yahweh, he, is God, - He, made us, and not, we ourselves, His people, and the flock of his pasture.
