O come, let us bow down and bend the knee; let us kneel before HaShem our Maker;
For He is our G-d, and we are the people of His pasture, and the flock of His hand. To-day, if ye would but hearken to His voice!
'Harden not your heart, as at Meribah, as in the day of Massah in the wilderness;
When your fathers tried Me, proved Me, even though they saw My work.
For forty years was I wearied with that generation, and said: It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known My ways;
Wherefore I swore in My wrath, that they should not enter into My rest.'
