Ask me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea,
From the ends of the earth we hear singing: "Glory to the Righteous One." But I said, "I waste away, I waste away! Woe to me! The treacherous betray! With treachery the treacherous betray!"
