1. Then seven women shall take one man,*
and they will say to him,
"You eat our bread and you cover yourself
with our fine clothes;
it is only your name that* we are called by,*
and we are spared the harvest.* *
2. On that Day, there shall live the Maryah of Glory
and [the Maryah of] Honor,
and the fruit of the earth shall be [provided]
to those who tired over it
and gave thanks for it --
those who remain from Israel.
3. And it shall come to pass
that those who remain in Zion
and those who remain in Jerusalem,
they shall be called the saints,
all that are written of in Jerusalem
in the Book of Life.
4. And Maryah shall cleanse
the ravages of Zion's daughters,
and the shedding of blood
will depart from Jerusalem,*
by the Spirit of Judgment
and by the Spirit of Holocaust.*
5. And Maryah shall create all that He chooses*
to Mount Zion surrounding it --
the cloud in the daytime
and the smoke and the rays
of the fire's flames at night,
because over all their roots even
He shall shelter.
6. And there shall be a partitioning
of the shade of day from the heat,
to cover and to part the storm from the rain.*
