He threatened 1 to destroy them, but 2 Moses, his chosen one, interceded with him 3 and turned back his destructive anger. 4
כ (Kaf) The Lord fully vented 1 his wrath; he poured out his fierce anger. 2 He started a fire in Zion; it consumed her foundations. 3
Yet he is compassionate. He forgives sin and does not destroy. He often holds back his anger, and does not stir up his fury. 1
Wake up! Wake up! Get up, O Jerusalem! You drank from the cup the Lord passed to you, which was full of his anger! 1 You drained dry the goblet full of intoxicating wine. 2
ד (Dalet) He prepared his bow 1 like an enemy; his right hand was ready to shoot. 2 Like a foe he killed everyone, even our strong young men; 3 he has poured out his anger like fire on the tent 4 of Daughter Zion.
No one can withstand 1 his indignation! 2 No one can resist 3 his fierce anger! 4 His wrath is poured out like volcanic fire, boulders are broken up 5 as he approaches. 6
