Commentary on
The Book of Jasher
Chapter 89:1-10.

Text
LXXXIX:1  Then spoke Joshua this song, on the day that Yehuveh had given the Amorites into
          the hand of Joshua and the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of all Israel.
LXXXIX:2   Thou hast done mighty things, O Yehuveh, thou hast performed great deeds; who is like
          unto thee? My lips shall sing to thy name.
LXXXIX:3   My goodness and my fortress, my high tower, I will sing a new song unto thee, with
          thanksgiving will I sing to thee, thou art the strength of my salvation.
LXXXIX:4   All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, the princes of the world shall sing to thee,
          the children of Israel shall rejoice in thy salvation, they shall sing and praise thy power.
LXXXIX:5   To thee, O Yehuveh, did we confide; we said thou art our
Elohim, for thou wast our shelter
          and strong tower against our enemies.
LXXXIX:6   To thee we cried and were not ashamed, in thee we trusted and were delivered; when
          we cried unto thee, thou didst hear our voice, thou didst deliver our souls from the sword,
          thou didst show unto us thy grace, thou didst give unto us thy salvation, thou didst rejoice
          our hearts with thy strength.
LXXXIX:7   Thou didst go forth for our salvation, with thine arm thou didst redeem thy people;
          thou didst answer us from the heavens of thy holiness, thou didst save us from ten
          thousands of people.
LXXXIX:8   The sun and moon stood still in heaven, and thou didst stand in thy wrath against
          our oppressors and didst command thy judgments over them.
LXXXIX:9   All the princes of the earth stood up, the kings of the nations had gathered
          themselves together, they were not moved at thy presence they desired thy battles.
LXXXIX:10   Thou didst rise against them in thine anger, and didst bring down thy wrath upon
          them; thou didst destroy them in thine anger, and cut them off in thine heart.
