23:23 'No black magic can [be effective] against Jacob, and no occult powers against Israel. 'How is God acting?' is the only question pertinent to Jacob and Israel.
Ki lo-nachash beYa'akov velo kesem beYisra'el ka'et ye'amer le-Ya'akov ule-Yisra'el mah-pa'al el.
23:24 This is a nation that rises like the king of beasts, and lifts itself like a lion. It does not lie down until it eats its prey and drinks the blood of its kill.'
Hen-am kelavi yakum vecha'ari yitnasa lo yishkav ad-yochal teref vedam-chalalim yishteh.
