They will deal treacherously with you.

Of a stammering tongue that you cannot understand.

A tabernacle that will not be taken down;
Not one of its stakes will ever be removed,
Nor will any of its cords be broken.

A place of broad rivers and streams,
In which no galley with oars will sail,

The people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity.
