Hi Rabbi,

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.

RMessinger

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.
J.B. Sacks
34:32
Based upon a passage in Isaiah, I have written how I believe that Ashrei means "evolving"
J.B. Sacks
34:54
The psalmist treasures those who keep vital--who keep evolving
J.B. Sacks
35:07
As does Torah
sasha
35:11
So beautiful, Rabbi Sacks
Sheldon
35:22
Rabie do you have the Robert Altman Copy when is different narration
haroldlevine
35:39
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.
haroldlevine
35:46
*More than half
J.B. Sacks
36:11
Ashrei is common to Psalms. Out of 45 uses in Tanakh, 26 are in Psalms.
J.B. Sacks
36:23
Twenty-six is Y-H-V-H, one of G!d's names
CBST

Sarah Siegel
36:26
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.)
CBST
36:32
This is the translation RSK wanted to show
J.B. Sacks
36:35
That is how important it is to continually evolve
haroldlevine
37:11
“Ashrei Yoshvei Veitecha” introduces Psalm 145 and the Psalm sequence for the morning.
J.B. Sacks
37:45
Hata'im can mean to "miss the way"--so dereckh hata'im (way of the wayward) is a beautiful literary contradiction
J.B. Sacks
38:11
The word "resha," wicked has, at its core, a meaning of "ill-regulated."
lena
38:12
Harold, where is the “ashrei” used in the Torah exactly?
J.B. Sacks
39:45
Related to path, ashrei has at its base meaning "to walk" or "to move, to go"
Alyssa
40:50
Why are there two trope marks on some of the words - example Rasha’im has both a mapach and a march?
Alyssa
41:22
mercha (auto correct)
haroldlevine
41:41
Interesting: walk, stand and sit.
J.B. Sacks
41:53
"lazy"/Lei-tzim" has, at its root meaning, to turn aside--to get off to the side of one's life.
Tim Kynerd
42:05
I'm looking at Robert Adler's translation, and his first footnote is about walk/stand/sit.
haroldlevine
42:09
Deuteronomy 33:29, Iena.
Jane Gronau
42:11
Don’t walk, don’t stand, don’t sit= don’t be
Tim Kynerd
42:15

42:49
Whoa! Just one pasuk!

Sarah Siegel

Loving this study. Thank you.
susan
43:20
Why does the psalm start with three negatives?
haroldlevine
43:20
Show an etnachta tomorrow. That’s the most important mark in a Psalm - the pause between the two parts.
Max Leader
43:23
This has been such a refreshing way to start the day
George Perlov
43:52
