||[In any case,] because God said He would destroy you, I threw myself down before God [and] lay prostrate for forty days and forty nights.
Va'etnapal lifney Adonay et arba'im hayom ve'et-arba'im halaylah asher hitnapalti ki-amar Adonay lehashmid etchem.
||My prayer to God was, 'God! Lord! Do not destroy Your nation and heritage, which You liberated with Your greatness, and which You brought out of Egypt with a mighty hand.
Va'etpalel el-Adonay va'omar Adonay Elohim al-tashchet amecha venachalatecha asher padita begodlecha asher-hotseta miMitsrayim beyad chazakah.
