"Call if you will, but who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn?
King James Bible
Call now, if there be any that will answer thee; and to which of the saints wilt thou turn?

"Call now; is there any who will answer you? To which of the holy ones will you turn?
Young's Literal Translation
Pray, call, is there any to answer thee? And unto which of the holy ones dost thou turn?

Can the channel afford me water, if the fountain cease to emit it?
