    1. חַמָּה - (hama) sun
    חֵמָה - (hema) anger, wrath, ire
    חֲמָתְךָ - your anger. ( the ה transforms to ת and ךָ means your)
    2.תְיַסְּרֵנִי
    ת indicates future tence
    the root is יסר which means to torment, to cause pain ; to chastise, to punish to chasten, to discipline, instruct, admonish
    ני means me. ( in modern language אותי)
    everything together: chasten me, punish me (future)
