Listen, avenger...

And may these words that I command you today be on your heart:
and you shall repeat them to your sons and speak of them when
you sit in your home and when you walk in the path and when you
lie down and when you rise.
(Deuteronomy 6:6-7).

Listen, avenger, to the voice of your L-ord,
Who crushes the foe's head with hand held high.
And may on your heart be his word;
The tools of war one must sanctify.

Every day as you sit in your home,
As you walk in fields that terrify,
As you lie down and as up you come ?
The tools of war one must sanctify.

A deadly foe provokes! ? You share a pact ?
Son of your mother, her blood in his blood does lie.
And if your parents join your foes (a sad fact) ?
The tools of war one must sanctify!

Written by 'Yair'.
