One candle

December 20, 2011

Nice or not nice? You decide.

When You will have prepared the slaughter
for the blaspheming foe,
Then I shall complete with a song of hymn
the dedication of the Altar.

לעת תכין מטבח מצר המנבח
אז אגמור בשיר מזמור חנכת המזבח

    Nice is a word meaning precise.

    The foe must be destroyed. The altar must be cleansed. The singing of a new song – a psalm – is promised (Psalm 144.9). The psalm being new must be the work of the life of the foe after its obliteration (being brought to a complete end). This nicely suggests the cleansed altar rededicated.
