Psalm 30 – SING & LEARN – Can ‘bad’ turn to be ‘good’?!

Notes taken this week by Steve, below the video

CHAPTER 30:

I will exalt You, HASHEM, for You have raised me up from the depths, and not let my foes rejoice over me. HASHEM, my God, I cried out to You and You healed me. HASHEM, You have raised up my soul from the lower world, You have preserved me lest I descend to the Pit. Sing to HASHEM, His devoted ones, and give thanks to His holy Name. For His anger endures but a moment; but life results from His pleasure; in the evening one lies down weeping, but with dawn — a cry of joy!

Psalm 24 – SING & LEARN

SING & LEARN Psalm 24

שְׂאוּ שְׁעָרִים, רָאשֵׁיכֶם, וְהִנָּשְׂאוּ, פִּתְחֵי עוֹלָם;

וְיָבוֹא, מֶלֶךְ הַכָּבוֹד.

Psalm 137  – Summary by Sherry:

1. By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat, we also wept when we remembered Zion.

2. On willows in its midst we hung our harps.

3. For there our captors asked us for words of song and our tormentors [asked of us] mirth, “Sing for us of the song of Zion.”

4. “How shall we sing the song of the Lord on foreign soil?”

5. If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill].

Psalm 27 – SING & LEARN

אַחַת, שָׁאַלְתִּי מֵאֵת-יְהוָה– אוֹתָהּ אֲבַקֵּשׁ:    שִׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית-יְהוָה, כָּל-יְמֵי חַיַּי

ACHAT SHA-ALTY ME-ET HASHEM, OTA AVAKESH,
SHIVTI BE-VET HASHEM KOL YEMEY CHAYAY

 

 

One [thing] I ask of the Lord,
that I seek-that I may dwell in
the house of the Lord all the
days of my life, to see the
pleasantness of the Lord and to
visit His Temple every morning
