A prayer of Ḥilqiyahu, when he was surrounded by his enemies.

1 Give esteem to Elohim with a loud voice,
And proclaim His esteem in the assembly of many.

2 Exalt His praise among the multitude of the upright,
And speak of His esteem with the righteous.

3 Join your beings to the good and to the perfect,
To esteem the Most High Elohim.

4 Gather yourselves together to make known His strength,
And do not be slow in showing forth His deliverance,
His strength, and His esteem to all who are young.

5 Wisdom has been given that the esteem of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 may be known,
And it has been made known to men to tell of His works:

6 To make known to children His strength,
And to cause those who lack understanding to understand His esteem,

7 who are far from His entrances and distant from His gates;

8 For the Elohim of Ya’aqoḇ is exalted, And His esteem is upon all His works.

9 He takes pleasure in a man who esteems the Most High,
As in one who offers fine flour.

10 And as in one who offers male goats and calves,
And as in one who makes the altar fat with a multitude of burnt offerings,
And as the smell of incense from the hands of the righteous.

11 His voice shall be heard from Your upright gates,
And admonition from the voice of the upright.

12 In their eating and their drinking, when they share together,
They shall be satisfied in truth.

13 Their mind dwells on the Torah of the Most High Elohim,
And their words are to make known His strength.

14 How far from the wicked are the words of Him,
And from all transgressors to know Him!

15 See; the eye of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 shows favour to the good!
He increases favour to those who esteem Him,
And He delivers their being from the time of evil.

16 Baruḵ be 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, who has delivered the oppressed from the hand of the wicked;
Who raises up a horn out of Ya’aqoḇ,
And a Judge of the nations out of Yisra’ĕl,

17 that He may prolong His dwelling in Tsiyon,
And may adorn our age in Yerushalayim.
