Moshe ben Yoav: the unfuckwiddable.

Moshe ben Yoav (after 1506 – after 1569)
Against Satan I’d Stand

Against Satan I’d stand / and the great and the meek / with my spear and I’d wreak / utter havoc, dismay
Like a crow with a sword / and a net and a bow / sharp arrows to harrow / on my path, on my way
I will burst every breach / and fell foes of strength leeched / and I’ll hiss like a snake / with each word that I say.
משה בן־יואב
אני קם לשטן

 
אֲנִי קָם לְשָׂטָן / לְגָדוֹל וְקָטָן / בְּרֹמַח וְאֶהְיֶה / לְמַשְׁחִית בְּחַרְבִּי
כְּאוֹרֵב בְּחֶרֶב / וְרֶשֶׁת וְקֶשֶׁת / וְחִצִּים חֲצוּצִים / בְּאֹרַח נְתִיבִי
וְאֶפְרֹץ פְּרָצִים / וְאַפִּיל רְצוּצִים / וְלַחַשׁ כְּנַחַשׁ / אֲמָרַי וְנִיבִי
י
