O Lord, our Lord,

How majestic is Your name throughout the earth,

You who have covered the heavens with Your splendor!

He who rules people justly,

He who rules in awe of G-d

is like the light of morning at sunrise,

a morning without clouds ~

Amos 5.14-15

Photograph by Mica Engelhardt.

Seek good and not evil,

That you may live,

And that the L-rd, the G-d of Hosts,

May truly be with you,

As you think.

Hate evil and love good,

And establish justice in the gate;

Perhaps the L-rd, the G-d of Hosts,

Will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph.

Amos 5.14-15

and gave them drink as if from the great deep.

and made them flow down like a river.
