5 For the hind also calveth in the field, and forsaketh [its young], because there is no grass.
6 And the wild asses stand on the heights, they snuff up the wind like jackals; their eyes fail, because there is no herbage.
7 Jehovah, though our iniquities testify against us, do thou act for thy name's sake; for our backslidings are many -- we have sinned against thee.
8 Thou hope of Israel, its Saviour in the time of trouble, why wilt thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a traveller that turneth aside to stay a night?
9 Why wilt thou be as a man astonished, as a mighty man that cannot save? Yet thou, Jehovah, art in the midst of us, and we are called by thy name: leave us not.
