Tehillim/Psalms 134


Now bless the Lord,

all you servants of the Lord

who stand nightly

in the house of the Lord.

Lift your hands toward the sanctuary

and bless the Lord.

May the Lord,

maker of heaven and earth,

bless you from Zion.

Tehillim/Psalms 1.1-2


Happy is the person who has not followed the counsel of the wicked,

Or taken the path of sinners,

Or joined the company of the insolent;

Rather the teaching of the Lord is his delight,

and he studies that teaching day and night.

Tehillim/Psalms 1.1-2

Iyov/Job 14.7-9

There is hope for a tree;

If it is cut down, it will renew itself;

Its shoots will not cease.

If its roots are old in the earth,

And its stump dies in the ground,

At the scent of water it will bud

And produce branches like a sapling.

Iyov/Job 14.7-9

Grandchildren are the crown of their elders,

And the glory of children is their parents.

In His abundant kindness

Our G-d is compassionate.

I was brought low and He saved me.
