If you will do this for me, I will again your flock to pasture on my lands,
But if you will not listen to me and will not follow my commands,
If you will indeed give this people into my hands,
If you will walk in my statutes and obey my demands,
If you will save Israel by my hand.
If you will not let my people go,
If you will forgive their sin—but if not,
If you will walk in my ways, I will lengthen your days,
If you will remain in this land, then I will build you up.
If you will seek God and plead with the Almighty for mercy,
If you will walk before me, as David your father walked,
If you will be a servant to this people today and serve them,
If you will fear the Lord and serve him and obey his voice.
If you will not listen, my soul will weep,
If you will walk in my ways and my laws to keep,
If you will not listen, if you will not take it to heart to give honour to my name,
then I will send the curse upon you and I will curse your blessings.
If you will fall down and worship me,
Lord, if you will, you can make me clean,
If you will not wake up, I will come like a thief in the night,
I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of life,
For you my child I want the best.
If you will come to Me, and I Will Give You Rest.
If, I will!
