How the cattle moan! The herds mill about because they have no pasture;1 even the flocks of sheep are suffering.2
To you, O LORD, I call,3 for fire4 has devoured the open pastures5 and flames have burned up all the trees of the field.
Even the wild animals pant for you;6 the streams of water have dried up7 and fire has devoured the open pastures.8
