Even if he slays me, I will hope in him;
Evil men will soon disappear;
If you should pound
All the streams flow
There is no end to all the people
though it never saw the light of day
if he should live a thousand years twice, yet does not enjoy his prosperity. For both of them die!
In the past he said to them,
In just a very short time
The sovereign master
“But you did not call for me, O Jacob; you did not long
Can a woman forget her baby who nurses at her breast?
The sovereign Lord says this, the one who gathers the dispersed of Israel: “I will still gather them up.”
In spite of all this,
Do not let anyone accuse or contend against anyone else:
The arrogance of Israel testifies against him, yet they refuse to return to the Lord their God! In spite of all this they refuse to seek him!
But I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt. Therefore, you must not acknowledge any God but me; except me there is no Savior.
