“People of Israel,
    your camp is lovely.
It’s like a grove of palm trees[a]
    or a garden beside a river.
You are like tall aloe trees
    that the Lord has planted,
or like cedars
    growing near water.
You and your descendants
will prosper
like an orchard
    beside a stream.
Your king will rule with power
and be a greater king
    than Agag the Amalekite.[b]
