Day 7 of Counting the Omer
ז (Zayin) (the seventh Hebrew alphabet)
49 Remember your promise to your servant, through which you have given me hope.
50 In my distress my comfort is this: that your promise gives me life.
51 Though the arrogant scorn me completely, I have not turned away from your Torah.
52 Adonai, I keep in mind your age-old rulings; in them I take comfort.
53 Fury seizes me when I think of the wicked, because they abandon your Torah.
54 Your laws have become my songs wherever I make my home.
55 I remember your name, Adonai, at night; and I observe your Torah. 56 This [comfort] has come to me, because I observe your precepts.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments, and commanded us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Today is seven days, which is one week of the Omer.
May the Merciful One restore us as worthy vessels for service as the Tabernacle speedily in our days; Amen, Selah.
Loving you enough to share the truth,
