And He smiteth His adversaries backward, A reproach age-during He hath put on them,
And He kicketh against the tent of Joseph, And on the tribe of Ephraim hath not fixed.
And He chooseth the tribe of Judah, With mount Zion that He loved,
And buildeth His sanctuary as a high place, Like the earth, He founded it to the age.
And He fixeth on David His servant, And taketh him from the folds of a flock,
From behind suckling ones He hath brought him in, To rule over Jacob His people, And over Israel His inheritance.
And he ruleth them according to the integrity of his heart, And by the skilfulness of his hands leadeth them!
