 32:14
 32:15
32:14 [They had] the cheese of cattle, milk of sheep, fat of lambs, rams of the Bashan, and luscious fat wheat. They drank the blood of grapes for wine.
Chem'at bakar vachalev tson im-chelev karim ve'eylim bney-Vashan ve'atudim im-chelev kilyot chitah vedam-enav tishteh-chamer.
32:15 Jeshurun thus became fat and rebelled. You grew fat, thick and gross. [The nation] abandoned the God who made it and spurned the Mighty One who was its support.
Vayishman Yeshurun vayiv'at shamanta avita kasita vayitosh Eloha asahu vayenabel tsur yeshu'ato.
