Whenever God slew them, they would seek him; they eagerly turned to him again.
When He killed them, then they sought Him, And returned and searched diligently for God;
When God killed some of them, the rest finally sought him. They repented and turned to God.
When he cut them down, they came running for help; they turned and pled for mercy.
When he sent death on them, then they made search for him; turning to him and looking for him with care;
When he killed them, they sought for him; they repented and sought God earnestly.
When He slew them, then they sought Him; And they returned and sought earnestly for God.
