Can't keep workers working if their kids aren't at school If children aren't in school parents are taking time off work to look after them. If people aren't working the economy isn't growing. Politicians will say the priority is children, but it's always about money.  

Government cabinet are still in a meeting ironing out the last details but it looks like it'll be:

  • Pubs, bars, restaurant doing takeaway/delivery only
  • Essential retail only
  • No household visits or social gatherings except weddings and funerals (6 guests at a wedding, 10 mourners at a funeral)
  • Cannot travel more than 5km from home unless for essential reasons like work
  • Schools and creches will stay open
  • Elite level sport may continue
  • Lockdown likely to be eased on county-by-county basis

      Two elders have been deleted by Watchtower for reporting an allegation of child sexual abuse to the police, contrary to Watchtower orders (a jw paedophile with a history, apparently). When the British branch discovered what the elders had done they arranged for 3 elders to fly over to Ireland, at the congregations expense no less, to hold a special JC for the ' rogue' congregation elders. One elder and the COBE were deleted, two were allowed to continue. All four had made statements to police.
      Their crime was, breathtakingly, not exhibiting "soundness of mind" by not following company directives and using their own conscience!!!
      The following 'Watchtower in Focus' explains all. Incredibly a practicing jw reached out to jw survey in an attempt to have a light shone on this travesty of justice, which resulted in an excellent front page article being written in a national magazine.

      Galway Bay fm newsroom – Tuam’s Jehovah’s Witnesses congregation is hoping to refurbish its premises at the Weir Road in the town.
      The development at Killaloonty would involve the renovation of the existing building, and a change of use of the adjoining caretakers apartment.
       
      The change of use would facilitate a relocation of the front entrance, new toilet facilities, an enlarged auditorium and a new multipurpose room.
      The project would also see the provision of accessible toilets and car parking bays, additional general parking and a new pedestrian entrance.
      County planners are due to make a decision next month.

      Today's Watchtower reminded me of one student's comment during an interview at their graduation last week.
      They said they appreciated that they had received a "superior education.
      This is the best possible education because it comes from our Creator."
      How very true. No other education compares to one from Jehovah.

      Witnesses describe gruesome scene of Castlebar murders

      ON TRIAL Alan Cawley is pictured arriving at Swinford District Court back in July 2013, when he was charged with the murders of Tom and Jack Blaine. His trial began in Dublin last Friday. Pic: Keith Heneghan/Phocus
      Ballina man on trial in Dublin for murder of ‘vulnerable, reclusive’ brothers
      Natasha Reid
      A woman who had cared for two elderly brothers for almost a decade became emotional in court today as she described finding their bodies covered in blood in their Castlebar home four years ago.Helen Maloney was giving evidence to the ongoing murder trial at the Central Criminal Court earlier today.Alan Cawley of Four Winds, Corrinbla, Ballina, is charged with murdering both Thomas Blaine and John (Jack) Blaine, who were beaten to death in their home.The 30 year old has admitted killing the brothers, one of whom was disabled and was scalded during the assault. However, he has pleaded not guilty to murdering them on July 10, 2013, at New Antrim Street in the town.
      ‘I loved them dearly’Ms Maloney told Denis Vaughan Buckley, SC, prosecuting, that she was employed as a Home Help by the HSE and had been caring for the Blaine brothers for around nine years, when they died.She became emotional when he asked her about her first impression of them. “Two absolute gentlemen,” she replied.The barrister was then given permission to lead her through her evidence, and put the contents of a document to her.She agreed with him that they were ‘very vulnerable, reclusive and had speech impediments’. She agreed that Jack Blaine had both a speech and hearing problem, and had a spinal injury from an accident in England many years earlier. He had also suffered from dementia in his last few months. She added that she used to call to see them three times a day, 365 days a year.“They were two absolute gentlemen, a pleasure to look after,” she said. “They gave so much love and respect to me. They’ll be in my mind until the day I die. I loved them dearly, and so did the people of Castlebar.”She said they were loved throughout the town, where their nickname was ‘The boys’.She described them jointly as a treasure. “They’d never hurt anybody,” she said, before describing the scene she found that morning.She said she arrived at their house at 7.15am, went into the kitchen and called out to them in the same way she had everyday: “Are you ready to rock and roll?” she said.She got no answer and looked into Tom Blaine’s bedroom, where she saw him lying on the floor, with his legs on the bed. She said she shouted: ‘Tom, Tom. It’s Helen’, but there was no response.She then saw a pool of blood on the floor and that he was saturated in blood. She said there was blood on the walls and there were bloody handprints in the room. She could see that the blood was coming from his head. She said she went out the front door and asked two council men to call the Gardaí before running back into the house.“I couldn’t find Jack,” she explained. She ran upstairs to his bedroom and found it totally ransacked. “I searched, thinking he might have been hiding with fear, but there was no Jack,” she recalled.She returned downstairs and found the back door fully opened. She saw Jack Blaine on his back on the ground, half in and half out of the house. “He was also covered in blood all over,” she said.She recalled running out the front door again and shouting: ‘Oh my God’.She said she saw Rocky Moran, the owner of a pub across the road. She described Rocky’s Bar as Jack Blaine’s ‘home from home’, where he could get a cup of tea any time of the day.“The boys are gone,” she told Mr Moran. He asked her where they’d gone. She told him they were dead and not go to in, that he didn’t want to see what was inside. She said she then got sick.Caroline Biggs SC, defending, asked if she was satisfied that the brothers would never have had the capacity to hurt her. “Never in a million years,” she replied. “The only thing they would have shown me was affection.”
      ‘All sliced’Michael ‘Rocky’ Moran confirmed that Ms Maloney had warned him not to go into the house but that he had gone inside anyway. He described the same scene as Ms Maloney, adding that Jack Blaine was ‘all cut’.“He was all sliced,” said the publican and undertaker.“It’s one of the worst sights I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a lot of sights,” he said.He said he had not been working the night before and had last seen Jack Blaine on July 8. “He might have come in ten times a night for a cup of tea. He came in during the day as well,” he said.He said that he sometimes drank the tea in the pub, but that staff would mainly bring it across the street for him and leave it on his windowsill.“He only spoke to me twice ever in his life,” he said, explaining that he had known both brothers all his life.Garda Michael Tolan was one of the first gardai on the scene and described Ms Maloney as inconsolable when he arrived.He also knew both men. He told Mr Vaughan Buckley that Tom Blaine appeared to be badly marked and that his brother’s lips were split.“His stomach was bare,” he said of Jack Blaine. “There appeared to be pieces of skin removed from his stomach.”
      ‘That’s terrible’The jury was then shown CCTV footage of Alan Cawley’s movements around the time of the killing. It showed him cross paths with Jack Blaine outside Rocky’s Bar at 11.58pm, as an employee was delivering a cup of tea to the pensioner’s windowsill.It showed the accused enter the Blaine home at midnight, followed by Mr Blaine. Mr Cawley was seen leaving the house an hour and two minutes later.The jury also heard that the accused had been released from prison a few days earlier.Clodagh Peyton testified that she had provided B&B accommodation in apartments on Newport Road in the town. She had agreed to host Alan Cawley for a number of nights from Friday, July 5, the day he was released from Castlerea Prison, after the prison’s resettlement officer had introduced them.She said that he was a little agitated on Tuesday, July 9, having been picked up for shoplifting. “He was just telling me that he was trying to keep himself chilled out, lighting incense and things like that,” she recalled.The morning after the killing, she said, he seemed fine – relaxed, chatting and smiling. “He was asking questions about the bible,” she said, explaining that she was a Jehovah’s Witness and had left related magazines in his room.She brought a friend to meet him later that day and the three of them held a bible study for over an hour. When she told him the news of the killing, she said he replied: ‘That’s terrible’.She said she no-longer provides the service she provided at the time.The trial continues tomorrow morning (Thursday) before Mr Justice Paul Coffey and a jury of four women and eight men.

      A Jehovah's Witness in England embroiled in a family court dispute with his estranged wife has been barred from taking his six-year-old son to some religious events by a judge.
      District Judge Malcolm Dodds has refused to allow the man to take the little boy to Jehovah's Witness assemblies, annual conventions and memorials.
      The judge concluded that there was a risk of the youngster suffering "emotional damage".
      He heard that the couple had separated about a year after the man began to study the Jehovah's Witness faith.
      The boy now lives with his mother, who did not practise any religion.
      Judge Dodds said the boy was "impressionable" and might suffer as a result of getting "confusing messages" if he went with his father to certain kinds of Jehovah's Witness gatherings.
      The boy's father had asked the judge to decide how much time he could spend with the boy. He also wanted the boy to be "part of" his religious beliefs.
      The boy's mother had raised concern about the boy being harmed by his father's religious beliefs and had told the judge how her son had once told her "God is good and you are bad".
      Judge Dodds had analysed the dispute at a private family court hearing in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, in May.
      He has revealed detail in a written ruling.
      The family involved has not been identified.
      Judge Dodds said the man could spend time with the boy and could take him to Sunday services.
      But he said he took a different view about the boy attending "assemblies, annual conventions and memorials".
      The judge said the man had already agreed not to take the boy on "field service" - knocking on doors of people's homes, not to read Bible stories to him and not to show him "religious biased media", including cartoons.
      "I ... do not wish to restrict him from taking (the boy) to the Kingdom Hall each Sunday for up to two hours," said Judge Dodds.
      "I do not see that this practice of the father's faith for a limited period within a group service with child-friendly activities poses a risk of jeopardy to (the boy's) relationship with his mother."
      The judge added: "I take a different view of assemblies, annual conventions and memorials. These are much longer events."
      He went on: "There is a far greater risk that (the boy) will be influenced ... given his age and how impressionable he is and the risk of emotional damage due to confusing messages.
      "As a result I find it necessary and proportionate to prohibit the father from taking (the boy) to Jehovah's Witness assemblies, annual conventions and memorials."
      Judge Dodds said the man had been "wise" to agree not to show the boy "Jehovah's Witness cartoons".
      The judge said he had watched cartoons called Obey Jehovah, Pay Attention At Meetings and One Man One Woman.
      "In Obey Jehovah a child is taught about the sinfulness of having a cartoon character toy with magical powers which the child had to put in a bin," said the judge.
      "While making sense to a child if both parents were Jehovah's Witnesses, such a cartoon would send a very confusing message to a child like (the boy) who has one foot in his mother's world and a wider world (in which magical characters are everywhere in books, television, DVDs, on the internet and in films) and his other foot in his father's world where such magical characters are sinful.
      "The mother asserts that in her submissions that the objective of the cartoons and Bible stories is to condition and indoctrinate children into Jehovah's Witness beliefs through a mixture of fear, manipulation and a strict boundary between behaviour which is acceptable and pleasing and that which is not.
      "The father accepts that (the boy) should not be exposed to such religious based media until (he) is at least 12."

      On St. Patrick's Day, everyone is seeing green—whether it's the green Chicago River, green beer, green milkshakes or green clothing and bead necklaces. Many might believe that the Emerald Isle and the color green are linked because of the country's verdant landscape, but the association actually traces its roots to Irish political history.
      In fact, blue is believed to have been associated with Ireland before green was. Henry the VIII claimed to be king of Ireland in the 16th century, and his flag at that point would have been blue. That's at least one reason why a blue flag with a harp is associated with the Irish President. (The harp is one of the two main symbols of Ireland, along with the Shamrock, and it dates back to the bards whose songs and stories were the chief entertainment in medieval Gaelic society.) A light blue became associated with the Order of St. Patrick, an 18th century era order of knights, perhaps to create a shade of blue for the Irish that was different from the royal blue associated with the English, says Timothy McMahon, Vice President of the American Conference for Irish Studies .
      McMahon argues the earliest use of green for nationalistic reasons was seen during the violent Great Irish Rebellion of 1641, in which displaced Catholic landowners and bishops rebelled against the authority of the English crown, which had established a large plantation in the north of Ireland under King James I in the early 17th century. Military commander Owen Roe O'Neill helped lead the rebellion, and used a green flag with a harp to represent the Confederation of Kilkenny, a group that sought to govern Ireland and kick out the Protestants who had taken control of that land in the north of Ireland. (They were ultimately defeated by Oliver Cromwell.)
      The color green cropped up again during an effort in the 1790s to bring nonsectarian, republican ideas to Ireland, inspired by the American revolution and the French revolution. The main society that promoted this idea, the Society of United Irishmen, wore green, especially an Irish version of the "liberty caps" worn during the French Revolution. One police report described their uniform as comprised of a dark green shirt cloth coat, green and white striped trousers, and a felt hat turned up on one side with a green emblematic cockade.
      Though the rest of the uniform eventually faded from popular wear, the importance of the color green spread, thanks in part to the poems and ballads written during this time, most famously "The Wearing of the Green."
      "You start to see different traditions building up around colors — the Protestant tradition is orange, the nationalist tradition associated with the Catholics is green," McMahon adds.
      The origins of the wearing of green clothing in the U.S. on St. Patrick's Day and for St. Patrick's Day celebrations in general date back to the 19th century, when waves of Irish immigrants came to America looking for better job opportunities, especially after the Great Famine of the 1840s-50s, and began wearing green and carrying Irish flags along with American flags as a point of pride for their home country.

      The validity of hundreds of marriages could be in doubt amid concerns about the “training and accreditation” of some wedding solemnisers.
      The Department of Social Protection, which maintains the register of solemnisers, is so concerned it says it may require all marriages to be solemnised by a civil registrar in addition to solemnisation by another religious or secular body.
      It says it has no way of knowing how many marriages may be affected as a result of being performed by inadequately trained solemnisers because a civil registrar is not present at such weddings.
      There are almost 6,000 marriage solemnisers registered across the State – some based in Northern Ireland.
      Of the total, 105 are civil registrars, employed by the HSE. There are also 13 secular solemnisers – including 12 humanist ones – and 5,784 who belong to religious bodies.
      No concerns have been expressed about the training and accreditation in any named religious body. However the Registrar General is concerned generally about the training that some smaller, newer religious bodies may be giving to accredited ministers, and it has no way of policing this.
      Of the religious solemnisers, the majority are from mainstream churches, including 4,452 from the Catholic Church, 358 from the Church of Ireland, 210 Jehovah’s Witnesses, 195 Methodists, 92 Presbyterians, five from the Islamic community and two who are Jewish.
      Online ordination
      There are also hundreds from less-known religious bodies, including one fromLife Renewal Ministries International, nine from the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, five from Pagan Federation Ireland and one from theHealing Streams Christian Renewal Centre.
      In a statement, the Registrar General told The Irish Times: “Religious bodies are not required by law to have training and accreditation procedures, and there is concern that the quality assurance provided by training and accreditation may not be present in some cases. The office is aware any individual can easily obtain an online ordination certificate without any training or accreditation by the religious body issuing the certificate.
      “Applications have been made by such persons for registration in the register of solemnisers.”
      Solemnisers from a secular body must satisfy regulations in the Civil Registration (Amendment) Act 2014, which says the body must have more than 50 members, must meet regularly and must have appropriate procedures for “selecting, training and accrediting members as fit and proper persons to solemnise marriages”.
      Senior officials in the department have warned in a briefing note to Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar: “The proliferation of small bodies and the lack of regulations of bodies gives rise to concerns as to validity of [some] marriages registered in the State.
      “In one case, a member of a religious body was convicted of facilitating sham marriages.
      “Against this background, consideration may need to be given to requiring that all marriages in the State be solemnised by a civil registrar as is the practice in most EU countries.”
      A spokeswoman said the Registrar General does not intend to comment on any particular body or on how many there are concerns about.
      “It is not possible to know how many marriages may be affected as the marriages in question are solemnised by religious bodies and no civil registrar is present.”

      Louez Jéhovah, Alliance de l'Amour fidèle en action
      Je veux louer Jéhovah ;
      que tout ce qui est en moi loue son saint nom.
      Je veux louer Jéhovah ;
      je ne veux jamais oublier tout ce qu’il a fait.
      Il pardonne toutes tes fautes
      et guérit tous tes maux,
      il rachète ta vie de la fosse
      et te couronne de son amour fidèle et de sa miséricorde.
      Il te rassasie de bonnes choses  toute ta vie,
      afin que ta jeunesse se renouvelle comme celle d’un aigle.
      Jéhovah agit avec droiture et justice
      en faveur de tous les opprimés.
      Il a fait connaître ses chemins à Moïse,
      ses actes aux fils d’Israël.
      Jéhovah est miséricordieux et compatissant,
      il est lent à se mettre en colère et abondant en amour fidèle.
      Il ne fait pas de reproches constamment
      et ne garde pas de ressentiment pour toujours.
      Il n’agit pas avec nous selon nos péchés
      et ne nous rend pas ce que nous méritons pour nos fautes.
      Car autant les cieux sont plus hauts que la terre,
      autant son amour fidèle envers ceux qui le craignent est immense.
      Autant le levant est loin du couchant,
      autant il éloigne de nous nos transgressions.
      Comme un père fait miséricorde à ses fils,
      Jéhovah fait miséricorde à ceux qui le craignent.
      Car il sait bien de quoi nous sommes formés,
      il se souvient que nous sommes poussière.
      Quant au mortel, ses jours sont comme ceux de l’herbe.
      Il fleurit comme la fleur des champs.
      Puis un vent souffle, et elle n’est plus,
      comme si elle n’avait jamais été là.
      Mais l’amour fidèle de Jéhovah est éternel
      envers ceux qui le craignent,
      et sa justice s’étend aux enfants de leurs enfants,
      à ceux qui respectent son alliance
      et à ceux qui prennent soin d’obéir à ses ordres.
      Jéhovah a solidement établi son trône dans les cieux,
      et sa royauté s’exerce sur tout.
      Louez Jéhovah, vous, tous ses anges extrêmement puissants
      qui, obéissant à sa voix, exécutez sa parole.
      Louez Jéhovah, vous, toutes ses armées,
      ses ministres, qui faites sa volonté.
      Louez Jéhovah, vous, toutes ses œuvres,
      dans tous les lieux où il domine.
      Que tout mon être loue Jéhovah !

      Je veux louer Jéhovah !
      Ô Jéhovah mon Dieu, tu es très grand.
      Tu es revêtu de majesté et de splendeur
      Tu es enveloppé de lumière comme d’un vêtement ;
      tu étends les cieux comme une toile de tente.
      Il pose les poutres de ses chambres hautes dans les eaux en haut,
      des nuages il fait son char,
      il avance sur les ailes du vent.
      Il fait de ses anges des esprits,
      de ses ministres un feu dévorant.
      Il a établi la terre sur ses fondations;
      jamais elle ne sera enlevée de son emplacement.
      Tu l’as couverte d’eaux profondes comme d’un vêtement.
      Les eaux se tenaient au-dessus des montagnes.
      À ta réprimande, elles ont pris la fuite ;
      au bruit de ton tonnerre, elles se sont enfuies tout affolées
       — des montagnes se sont élevées et des vallées se sont creusées —
      vers le lieu que tu as établi pour elles.
      Tu as fixé une frontière qu’elles ne doivent pas franchir,
      pour qu’elles ne couvrent plus la terre.
      Il envoie des sources dans les vallées ;
      elles coulent entre les montagnes.
      Elles fournissent de l’eau à toutes les bêtes sauvages des champs ;
      les ânes sauvages y apaisent leur soif.
      Au-dessus d’elles se perchent les oiseaux du ciel ;
      ils chantent parmi l’épais feuillage.
      Depuis tes chambres hautes, tu abreuves les montagnes.
      La terre est rassasiée du fruit de tes œuvres.
      Il fait pousser l’herbe pour le bétail
      et la végétation pour l’usage des humains,
      pour faire produire à la terre de la nourriture :
      le vin qui réjouit le cœur de l’homme,
      l’huile qui fait briller le visage
      et le pain qui réconforte le cœur du mortel.
      Les arbres de Jéhovah sont rassasiés,
      les cèdres du Liban qu’il a plantés.
      Les oiseaux y font des nids.
      La maison de la cigogne est dans les genévriers.
      Les hautes montagnes sont pour les chèvres de montagne,
      les rochers sont le refuge des damans.
      Il a fait la lune pour marquer les périodes fixées ;
      le soleil sait parfaitement quand se coucher.
      Tu amènes l’obscurité, et la nuit tombe,
      moment où tous les animaux sauvages de la forêt s’animent.
      Les jeunes lions rugissent après leur proie
      et demandent à Dieu leur nourriture.
      Quand le soleil se lève,
      ils se retirent dans leurs tanières, où ils se couchent.
      L’homme va travailler,
      et il peine jusqu’au soir.
      Que tes œuvres sont nombreuses, ô Jéhovah !
      Tu les as toutes faites avec sagesse.
      La terre est pleine de tes productions.
      Il y a la mer, si grande et si vaste,
      qui grouille de choses vivantes, petites et grandes.
      Là circulent les navires,
      et aussi Léviathan, que tu as formé pour qu’il s’y amuse.
      Eux tous comptent sur toi
      pour recevoir leur nourriture en temps voulu.
      Ce que tu leur donnes, ils le ramassent.
      Tu ouvres ta main, et ils sont rassasiés de bonnes choses.
      Tu détournes ton attention, et ils sont perturbés.
      Si tu leur retires l’esprit, ils meurent et retournent à la poussière.
      Si tu envoies ton esprit, ils sont créés,
      et tu renouvelles la surface du sol.
      La gloire de Jéhovah durera éternellement.
      Jéhovah se réjouira de ses œuvres.
      Il regarde la terre, et elle tremble ;
      il touche les montagnes, et elles fument.
      Je veux chanter pour Jéhovah toute ma vie,
      je veux chanter des louanges à mon Dieu aussi longtemps que je vivrai.
      Que mes pensées lui soient agréables.
      Je me réjouirai au sujet de Jéhovah.
      Les pécheurs disparaîtront de la terre
      et les méchants n’existeront plus.
      Je veux louer Jéhovah ! Louez Yah.

      Remerciez Jéhovah, louez son nom 
       
      Remerciez Jéhovah, louez son nom ;
      parmi les peuples, faites connaître ses actions grandioses !
      Chantez pour lui, chantez-lui des louanges,
      méditez sur tous ses actes prodigieux.
      Soyez fiers de son saint nom.
      Que le cœur de ceux qui recherchent Jéhovah se réjouisse.
      Recherchez Jéhovah et sa force.
      Cherchez constamment son visage.
      Souvenez-vous des actes prodigieux qu’il a accomplis,
      de ses miracles et des jugements qu’il a prononcés,
      vous, descendants de son serviteur Abraham,
      vous, fils de Jacob, ceux qu’il a choisis !
      Il est Jéhovah notre Dieu.
      Ses jugements s’appliquent sur toute la terre.
      Pour toujours, il se souvient de son alliance,
      pendant mille générations, de la promesse qu’il a faite,
      de l’alliance qu’il a conclue avec Abraham
      et du serment qu’il a fait à Isaac,
      serment qu’il a établi comme décret pour Jacob
      et comme alliance permanente pour Israël,
      en disant : « Je te donnerai le pays de Canaan ;
      ce sera ta part d’héritage. »
      C’était lorsqu’ils étaient en petit nombre,
      oui, peu nombreux, et qu’ils étaient étrangers dans le pays.
      Ils circulaient d’une nation à l’autre,
      d’un royaume vers un autre peuple.
      Il ne laissa aucun homme les opprimer;
      pour eux, il réprimanda des rois,
      en disant : « Ne touchez pas à mes oints
      et ne faites aucun mal à mes prophètes. »
      Il appela une famine sur le pays ;
      il les priva de pain.
      Il envoya en avant d’eux un homme,
      Joseph, qui fut vendu comme esclave.
      On lui lia les pieds par des entraves,
      on lui mit le cou dans les fers ;
      la déclaration de Jéhovah, c’est ce qui l’affina,
      jusqu’au moment où la parole de Dieu s’accomplit.
      Le roi ordonna de le libérer,
      le chef des peuples le relâcha.
      Il l’établit maître de son palais,
      chef sur tous ses biens,
      pour qu’il ait autorité sur ses princes comme il lui semblait bon
      et qu’il enseigne la sagesse aux aînés.
      Alors Israël vint en Égypte,
      et Jacob résida comme étranger au pays de Cham.
      Dieu rendit son peuple très fécond ;
      il le rendit plus fort que ses adversaires,
      dont il laissa le cœur changer pour qu’ils haïssent son peuple,
      pour qu’ils conspirent contre ses serviteurs.
      Il envoya son serviteur Moïse,
      et Aaron, qu’il avait choisi.
      Ils accomplirent ses signes parmi eux,
      ses miracles au pays de Cham.
      Il envoya l’obscurité, et le pays s’enténébra;
      ils ne se rebellèrent pas contre ses paroles.
      Il changea leurs eaux en sang
      et tua leurs poissons.
      Leur pays fut envahi de grenouilles,
      jusque dans les chambres royales.
      Il ordonna aux taons de les envahir
      et aux moustiques d’infester leurs territoires.
      Il changea leur pluie en grêle
      et envoya la foudre sur leur pays.
      Il frappa leurs vignes et leurs figuiers
      et brisa les arbres de leur territoire.
      Il ordonna que les criquets les envahissent,
      de jeunes criquets sans nombre.
      Ils dévorèrent toute la végétation du pays,
      et ils dévorèrent les produits du sol.
      Puis il abattit tout premier-né dans leur pays,
      le début de leur puissance procréatrice.
      Il fit sortir son peuple chargé d’argent et d’or;
      et parmi ses tribus, personne ne trébucha.
      Quand ils partirent, les Égyptiens se réjouirent,
      car la terreur qu’Israël inspirait s’était emparée d’eux.
      Il déploya un nuage pour dissimuler son peuple,
      et un feu pour l’éclairer la nuit.
      Ils demandèrent, et il fit venir des cailles ;
      il les rassasiait du pain du ciel.
      Il ouvrit un rocher, et les eaux coulèrent ;
      elles coulèrent dans le désert comme un fleuve.
      Car il se souvenait de la promesse sainte qu’il avait faite à son serviteur Abraham.
      Il fit donc sortir son peuple dans l’allégresse,
      ceux qu’il avait choisis, dans un cri de joie.
      Il leur donna les terres des nations ;
      ils héritèrent de ce que d’autres peuples avaient produit en peinant,
      afin qu’ils respectent ses décrets
      et obéissent à ses lois.
      Louez Yah !
