Elul 7, 5777

Get wisdom!
Get understanding!
Do not forget,
nor turn away from the words
of my mouth.
Do not forsake her,
and she will preserve you;
love her, and she will keep you.
Wisdom is the principal thing;
therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting,
get understanding.
Exalt her, and she will promote you;
she will bring you honor,
when you embrace her.
She will place on your head
an ornament of grace;
a crown of glory she will deliver to you.
Proverbs 4:5-9

For affliction
does not come from the dust,
nor does trouble
spring from the ground;
yet man is born to trouble,
as the sparks fly upward.
But as for me,
I would seek God,
and to God
I would commit my cause -
who does great things,
and unsearchable,
marvelous things
without number.
Job 5:6-9

and pomegranates,
a land of olive oil and honey;

eat bread without scarcity,
in which you will lack nothing;
a land whose stones are iron
and out of whose hills
you can dig copper.
When you have eaten and are full,
then you shall bless the LORD your God
for the good land
which he has given you.

in which
not one stone shall be left upon another
that shall not be thrown down.'
