  6. Yes, Israel, forget what wicked rulers and wicked people say, fight this war for Israel, do not hold back from reclaiming your land and ridding your God-given land of it’s enemies! The wicked of the world will never support you, no matter how right you are. The righteous of the world, however, are already with you, locked arm in arm, in prayer and supplication~ Israel, the greatest blessing on earth! From you, God has blessed every nation, tribe, and tongue! In you, the Lord has shown His wonders and great mercies, as well as His terrible judgments to those who would not walk in His ways….. His ways are pleasant ways and all His paths peace. Israel, the beautiful land, the diadem in the hand of your God, the joy of all the earth, our hearts joy with you, they also break with you, they sing with you, they also weep with you, they cheer for you, but they curse all those who seek your destruction! May your enemies, O Israel, we like refuse in the streets, be gone as if they were never born, be silenced forever, and be banished from the land in an instant!…. The Lord bless you, <3 Israel <3 , and keep you; the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord lift up His countenance; the Lord make His face to shine upon you!
