Original text and translations
Baruch 5: 8;
The woods and every sweet-smelling tree
shall overshadow Israel by the commandment of God.
Song of Songs 2: 3,4;
I sat down under His shadow with great delight,
and His fruit was sweet to my taste.
He brought me to the banqueting house,
and His banner over me was love.
Baruch 5: 9
For God shall lead Israel with joy in the light of his glory,
with the mercy and righteousness cometh from Him. Alleluia.
