CLV(i) 16 Is not the food cut off in front of our eyes, rejoicing and exultation from the house of our Elohim? 17 The parted seeds wizen beneath their dirt lumps:The treasuries are desolate; the underground hoards are demolished, for the grain is dried up." 18 How the beast sighs! The droves of oxen are doleful, for there is no pasture for them. Even the droves of small cattle are exterminated." 19 To You, Yahweh, am I calling, for fire devours the oases of the wilderness, and a blaze sets aflame all the trees of the field." 20 Even the beasts of the field are sniffing for You, for the channels of water are dry, and fire devours the oases of the wilderness."
