God became zealous for His land,
With compassion on His people;
That were abiding to His command,
And did worship in His temple.
Look! He is about to restore,
Restore our grain and fresh wine;
And reaping abundantly more.
Praising the Lord before we dine.
You will be fully satisfied,
Not an object of mockery;
For our God is bona-fide,
Helps avoiding debauchery.
He will remove one from the North,
Removing very far from you;
As goodness and mercy comes forth,
Ensuring that all said is true.
He will drive him out to a place.
A place as dry and desolate;
Driven eastward in a disgrace,
Where it was chaos and violent.
Those eastward into the Dead Sea,
Where his stench will be foul smelling;
Great accomplishments that we see,
A masterpiece quite compelling.
Do not fear dwelling in His land,
Always rejoice for being glad;
Abide in what He would demand,
He assures you are never sad.
Do not fear of the wild beast,
As they graze in the green pastures;
Pick the fruit and prepare for a feast,
Meat from a boar that one captures.
Be glad for what the Lord has done,
For He has given early rains;
As well as the growth from the sun,
For reducing your harvest pains.
He will repay what locust did eat,
No longer will be put to shame;
Never worry about defeat,
As long as you honor His name.
