Psalm 27 for the People of Afghanistan

How desperate do Your people need to be
To cling to a soaring plane?
Willing to choose the certainty of death
Over living with no hope of redemption?

Please,
God of Justice
Look upon the men
Whose enemies besiege them.
Raise them up to a stronghold.
Do not hand them over.

Please,
Protector of Sarah
Look upon the women
Shelter them in Your sukkah
In the secret recesses of Your tent.

Please,
God of Compassion
Look upon the children
Assailed by evil people
Their flesh devoured in the agony of war.

Please,
Maker of Peace,
Let them see Your goodness
In the land of the living.

Barukh atah Adonai, oseh haShalom.
Blessed are You, Maker of the Peace.
