New International Version
5 “How beautiful are your tents,(A) Jacob,
your dwelling places, Israel!
6 “Like valleys they spread out,
like gardens beside a river,(B)
like aloes(C) planted by the Lord,
like cedars beside the waters.(D)
7 Water will flow from their buckets;
their seed will have abundant water.
8 “God brought them out of Egypt;
they have the strength of a wild ox.
They devour hostile nations
and break their bones in pieces;(G)
with their arrows they pierce them.(H)
9 Like a lion they crouch and lie down,
like a lioness(I)—who dares to rouse them?
