Psalm 121A song of ascents.1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?2 My help comes from the Lord,the Maker of heaven and earth.3 He will not let your foot slip—he who watches over you will not slumber;4 indeed, he who watches over Israelwill neither slumber nor sleep.5 The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand;6 the sun will not harm you by day,nor the moon by night.7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—he will watch over your life;8 the Lord will watch over your coming and goingboth now and forevermore.
Good morning, evening!

Penny says hello to everyone. She does not like it when I close the door
you can actually just google each psalm by # and get a few different English versions in 1 second probably can do it for hebrewas well if that's what you want
RSK, Elayne Feldstein is raising their hand
I hope we see Penny before the end of class
Hi penny (from Rachel)
There are great 1-minute tutorials on Zoom's website.
here is another translation
Psalm 1 תהילים פרק1 Ashrei ha-ish: Happy is the human who has not walked In the counsel of the wicked And in the path of sinners has not stood, And in a chamber of cheats has not sat down,Finding delight instead In the Torah of Adonai, Reflecting on that Torah in daytime and the dark.Like such a human is a tree planted by a stream of water, Offering its fruit when the time is ripe, Leafy at all times, never withering. Whatever it produces lasts.Not like this are the wicked, They are like chaff instead, Scattered by the wind.
Based upon a passage in Isaiah, I have written how I believe that Ashrei means "evolving"
The psalmist treasures those who keep vital--who keep evolving
As does Torah
So beautiful, Rabbi Sacks
Rabie do you have the Robert Altman Copy when is different narration
More than of the uses of the word “Asher” in the Tanakh are in Psalms. It’s only used once in the Torah, 7 times in Prophets and 8 times in Proverbs.
*More than half
Ashrei is common to Psalms. Out of 45 uses in Tanakh, 26 are in Psalms.
Twenty-six is Y-H-V-H, one of G!d's names
And “Ashrei yoshvay vaytechah…,” the morning prayer that Geoffrey sang for us, I think, translates at Happy are those who sit in Your house.” (While we are confined to sitting in our houses mostly, we can still be happy if we sit in God’s house in parallel.)
This is the translation RSK wanted to show
That is how important it is to continually evolve
“Ashrei Yoshvei Veitecha” introduces Psalm 145 and the Psalm sequence for the morning.
Hata'im can mean to "miss the way"--so dereckh hata'im (way of the wayward) is a beautiful literary contradiction
The word "resha," wicked has, at its core, a meaning of "ill-regulated."
Harold, where is the “ashrei” used in the Torah exactly?
Related to path, ashrei has at its base meaning "to walk" or "to move, to go"
Why are there two trope marks on some of the words - example Rasha’im has both a mapach and a march?
mercha (auto correct)
Interesting: walk, stand and sit.
"lazy"/Lei-tzim" has, at its root meaning, to turn aside--to get off to the side of one's life.
I'm looking at Robert Adler's translation, and his first footnote is about walk/stand/sit.
Deuteronomy 33:29, Iena.
Don’t walk, don’t stand, don’t sit= don’t be
Whoa! Just one pasuk!
Loving this study. Thank you.
Why does the psalm start with three negatives?
Show an etnachta tomorrow. That’s the most important mark in a Psalm - the pause between the two parts.
This has been such a refreshing way to start the day
thanks, Rabbi. I thought it was just a simple tale of good and bad. :)
RSK, thank you so much for this. I so appreciate the routine of it during this time when so many of our routines have been interrupted. So great to see everyone these mornings!
