"But Jeshurun grew fat and kicked-- You are grown fat, thick, and sleek-- Then he forsook God who made him, And scorned the Rock of his salvation.
"For he has covered his face with his fat And made his thighs heavy with flesh.
They have closed their unfeeling heart, With their mouth they speak proudly.
I shall delight in Your statutes; I shall not forget Your word. Gimel.
"Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes dim, Otherwise they might see with their eyes, Hear with their ears, Understand with their hearts, And return and be healed."
