Arouse Yourself, awake to the justice due me, even to my cause, my God and my Lord!
Awake! Why do You sleep, O Lord? Arouse Yourself, cast us not off forever!
You, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations; spare none and be not merciful to any who treacherously plot evil. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
[Zion now cries to the Lord, the God of Israel] Awake, awake, put on strength and might, O arm of the Lord; awake, as in the ancient days, as in the generations of long ago. Was it not You Who cut Rahab [Egypt] in pieces, Who pierced the dragon [symbol of Egypt]?
They run and prepare themselves, though there is no fault in me; rouse Yourself [O Lord] to meet and help me, and see!
Then the Lord awakened as from sleep, as a strong man whose consciousness of power is heightened by wine.
Be still, all flesh, before the Lord, for He is aroused and risen from His holy habitation.
