1 Then Ĕliyahu the naḇi stood up as fire,
And his word burned like a lamp.
2 He brought a severe scarcity of food upon them,
And by his ardour he diminished their number.
3 By the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 he shut up the shamayim,
And also brought down fire three times.
4 O Ĕliyahu, how you were esteemed in your wondrous deeds!
And whose esteem is like yours?
5 Who raised up a dead man from death,
And his being from the place of the dead,
By the word of the Most High;
6 Who brought sovereigns to destruction,
And honourable men from their bed;
7 Who heard the rebuke of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 at Sinai,
And the judgment of punishment in Ḥorĕḇ;
8 Who anointed sovereigns to take vengeance,
And neḇi’im to succeed after him;
9 Who was taken up in a whirlwind of fire,
And in a chariot of fiery horses;
10 Who were ordained for reproofs in their times,
To appease the wrath of judgment of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
Before it broke forth into wrath,
And to turn the heart of the father to the son,
And to restore the tribes of Ya’aqoḇ.
11 Baruḵ are those who saw You, and slept in love;
For we shall surely live.
12 It was Ĕliyahu who was covered with a whirlwind;
And Ĕlisha was filled with His Ruaḥ.
While he lived, he was not moved by the presence of any prince,
Nor could any bring him into subjection.
13 No word could overcome him;
And after his death his being naḇa.
14 He did wonders in his life,
And at his death his works were marvellous.
15 For all this the people did not repent,
Nor did they depart from their sins,
Till they were plundered and carried out of their land,
And were scattered through all the earth;
Yet there remained a remnant of the people,
And a ruler from the house of Dawiḏ;
16 Of whom some did that which was pleasing to Elohim,
And some multiplied sins.
17 Ḥizqiyahu fortified his city, and brought in water into the midst of it;
He dug the solid rock with tools of iron,
And made wells for water.
18 In his time Sanḥeriḇ came up, and sent the Raḇshaqĕh,
And lifted up his hand against Tsiyon,
And boasted proudly.
19 Then their hearts and hands trembled,
And they were in pain, as women in chidbirth.
20 But they called upon 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 who is kind,
And stretched out their hands toward Him.
And immediately the Qadosh One heard them out of the shamayim,
And delivered them by the service of Yeshayahu.
21 He smote the army of Ashshur,
And His messenger destroyed them.
22 For Ḥizqiyahu had done that which pleased 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And was strong in the Ways of Dawiḏ his father,
As Yeshayahu the naḇi, who was great and trustworthy in his vision, had commanded him.
23 In his time the sun went backward,
And he lengthened the sovereign’s life.
24 He saw by an excellent spirit what would come to pass,
And he comforted those who mourned in Tsiyon.
25 He showed what should come to be at the end of time,
And secrets before they came to be.
