Haazinu-4 “I will hide My face”

Erev Yom Teruah 9-24-2014Chapter 32 Deuteronomy

19. And THE-ETERNAL-ONE saw this

and became angry, provoked by His sons and daughters.

יט. וַיַּרְא יְהֹוָה וַיִּנְאָץ מִכַּעַס בָּנָיו וּבְנֹתָיו:
20. And He said,

"I will hide My face from them.
I will see what their end will be, for they are a generation of changes;
they are not as My sons whom I have reared.

כ. וַיֹּאמֶר אַסְתִּירָה פָנַי מֵהֶם אֶרְאֶה מָה אַחֲרִיתָם כִּי דוֹר תַּהְפֻּכֹת הֵמָּה בָּנִים לֹא אֵמֻן בָּם:
21. They have provoked My jealousy with a non god, provoked My anger with their vanities.
Thus, I will provoke their jealousy with a non people,
provoke their anger with a foolish nation.
כא. הֵם קִנְאוּנִי בְלֹא אֵל כִּעֲסוּנִי בְּהַבְלֵיהֶם וַאֲנִי אַקְנִיאֵם בְּלֹא עָם בְּגוֹי נָבָל אַכְעִיסֵם:
22. For a fire blazed in My wrath, and burned to the lowest depths.
It consumed the land and its produce, setting aflame the foundations of mountains.
כב. כִּי אֵשׁ קָדְחָה בְאַפִּי וַתִּיקַד עַד שְׁאוֹל תַּחְתִּית וַתֹּאכַל אֶרֶץ וִיבֻלָהּ וַתְּלַהֵט מוֹסְדֵי הָרִים:
23. I will link evils upon them. I will use up My arrows on them. כג. אַסְפֶּה עָלֵימוֹ רָעוֹת חִצַּי אֲכַלֶּה בָּם:
24. They will sprout hair from famine, attacked by demons, excised by Meriri.
I will incite the teeth of livestock upon them,
with the venom of creatures that slither in the dust.
כד. מְזֵי רָעָב וּלְחֻמֵי רֶשֶׁף וְקֶטֶב מְרִירִי וְשֶׁן בְּהֵמֹת אֲשַׁלַּח בָּם עִם חֲמַת זֹחֲלֵי עָפָר:
25. From outside, the sword will bereave, and terror from within; young men and maidens,
suckling babes with venerable elders.
כה. מִחוּץ תְּשַׁכֶּל חֶרֶב וּמֵחֲדָרִים אֵימָה גַּם בָּחוּר גַּם בְּתוּלָה יוֹנֵק עִם אִישׁ שֵׂיבָה:
26. I said that I would make an end of them, eradicate their remembrance from mankind. כו. אָמַרְתִּי אַפְאֵיהֶם אַשְׁבִּיתָה מֵאֱנוֹשׁ זִכְרָם:
27. Were it not that the enemy’s wrath was heaped up, lest their adversaries distort;
lest they claim,
"Our hand was triumphant! The Lord did none of this!"
כז. לוּלֵי כַּעַס אוֹיֵב אָגוּר פֶּן יְנַכְּרוּ צָרֵימוֹ פֶּן יֹאמְרוּ יָדֵנוּ רָמָה וְלֹא יְהֹוָה פָּעַל כָּל זֹאת:
28. For they are a nation devoid of counsel, and they have no understanding. כח. כִּי גוֹי אֹבַד עֵצוֹת הֵמָּה וְאֵין בָּהֶם תְּבוּנָה:
