Cheshvan 29, 5777

He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.
He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;
He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow,
and the waters flow.
Psalm 147:15-18

Honor the LORD 
with your possessions,
and with the firstfruits
of all your increase;
so your barns will be filled with plenty,
and your vats will overflow
with new wine.
Proverbs 3:9-10

Cheshvan 26, 5777

Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD?
Or who may stand in His holy place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who has not lifted up his soul to an idol,
nor sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive blessing from the LORD,
and righteousness
from the God of his salvation.
This is Jacob, the generation of those
who seek Him,
who seek Your face.  Selah
Psalm 24:3-6

Cheshvan 25, 5777

I thank my God,
making mention of you always in my prayers,
hearing of your love and faith
which you have toward the Lord Jesus
and toward all the saints,
that the sharing of your faith
may become effective
by the acknowlegment
of every good thing which is in you
in Christ Jesus.
For we have great joy and consolation
in your love,
because the hearts of the saints
have been refreshed by you, brother.
Philemon 4-7

Cheshvan 24, 5777

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
even though the earth be removed,
and though the mountains be
carried into the midst of the sea;
though its waters roar and be troubled,
though the mountains shake 
with its swelling.  Selah
Psalm 46:1-3

let him ask of God,
who gives to all liberally
and without reproach,
and it will be given to him.

Cheshvan 21, 5777

 So are the paths of all who forget God;
and the hope of the hypocrite shall perish,
whose confidence shall be cut off,
and whose trust is a spider's web.

Therefore say, 'Thus says the Lord GOD:
"Although I have cast them far off among the Gentiles,
and although I have scattered them
among the countries,
yet I shall be a little sanctuary for them
in the countries where they have gone."'

Have not I commanded you?
Be strong and of good courage;
do not be afraid,
nor be dismayed,
for the LORD your God is with you
wherever you go.

Cheshvan 19, 5777

"My beloved is white and ruddy,
Chief among ten thousand.
His head is like the finest gold;
His locks are wavy,
And black as a raven.
His eyes are like doves
By the rivers of waters,
Washed with milk,
And fitly set.
His cheeks are like a bed of spices,
Banks of scented herbs.
His lips are lilies,
Dripping liquid myrrh.
His hands are rods of gold
Set with beryl.
His body is carved ivory
Inlaid with sapphires.
His legs are pillars of marble
Set on bases of fine gold.
His countenance is like Lebanon,
Excellent as the cedars.
His mouth is most sweet,
Yes, he is altogether lovely.
This is my beloved,
And this is my friend,
O daughters of Jerusalem!"

Cheshvan 16, 5777

Therefore they are before the throne of God,
and serve Him day and night in His temple.
And He who sits on the throne
will dwell among them.
They shall neither hunger anymore
nor thirst anymore;
the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat;
for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne
will shepherd them
and lead them to 
living fountains of waters.
And God will wipe away
every tear
from their eyes.
Revelation 7:15-17

Cheshvan 15, 5777

The sea gave up the dead who were in it,
and Death and Hades delivered up
the dead who were in them.
And they were judged,
each one according to his works.
Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.
Anyone not found written in the Book of Life
was cast into the lake of fire.
Revelation 20:13-15


Blessed are those who do His commandments,
that they may have the right
to the tree of life,
and may enter through the gates into the city.
But outside are dogs and sorcerers
and sexually immoral
and murderers
and idolaters,
and whoever loves and practices a lie.
Revelation 22:14-15

Cheshvan 14, 5777

No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
a mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a vain hope for safety;
neither shall it deliver any
by its great strength.
Behold, the eye of the LORD is on
those who fear Him,
on those who hope in His mercy,
to deliver their soul from death,
and to keep them alive in famine.
Our soul waits for the LORD;
He is our help and our shield.
Psalm 33:16-20

God sets the solitary in families;
He brings out those who are bound
into prosperity;
but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
Psalm 68:6

Cheshvan 12, 5777

As the deer pants for the water brooks,
so pants my soul for You, O God.
My soul thirsts for God,
for the living God.
When shall I come and appear before God?
Psalm 42:1-2

Cheshvan 9, 5777

The city had no need of the sun or 
of the moon to shine in it,
for the glory of God illuminated it.
The Lamb is its light.
Revelation 21:23

Cheshvan 8, 5777

Have you given the horse strength?
Have you clothed his neck with thunder?
Can you frighten him like a locust?
His majestic snorting strikes terror.
He paws in the valley,
and rejoices in his strength;
He gallops into the clash of arms,
He mocks at fear, and is not frightened;
nor does he turn back from the sword.
The quiver rattles against him,
the glittering spear and javelin.
He devours the distance with fierceness and rage;
nor does he come to a halt
because the trumpet has sounded.
At the blast of the trumpet he says, 'Aha!'
He smells the battle from afar,
the thunder of captains and shouting.
Job 39:19-25

" - the Most High God rules 
in the kingdom of men,
and appoints over it
whomever He chooses."

"For exaltation comes
neither from the east
nor from the west
nor from the south.
But God is the Judge:
He puts down one,
and exalts another."
Psalm 75:6-7


"For in the hand of the LORD
there is a cup,
and the wine is red;
it is fully mixed,
and He pours it out;
surely its dregs shall all the wicked of the earth
drain and drink down."

"For behold,
the day is coming,
burning like an oven,
and all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly
will be stubble.
And the day which is coming 
shall burn them up,"
says the LORD of hosts,
"That will leave them
neither root nor branch."
Malachi 4:1

Thus says the LORD:
I will return to Zion,
and dwell in the midst of Jerusalem.
Jerusalem shall be called
the City of Truth,
the Mountain of the LORD of hosts,
the Holy Mountain.'

Tishrei 30, 5777

Then speak to him, saying,
'Thus says the LORD of hosts, saying:
"Behold, the Man
whose name is the BRANCH!
From His place
He shall branch out,
and He shall build the temple of the LORD;
Yes, He shall build the temple of the LORD.
He shall bear the glory,
and shall sit and rule on His throne;
so He shall be a priest on His throne,
and the counsel of peace
shall be between them both."'
Zechariah 6:12-13
