Song of Ascent
$1,400.00 – $4,200.00
I love driving up the California coast. It really is spectacular!!! Different spiritual phrases speak to me at different times. The steps leading up to the tree are written as a phrase from Psalms.
The biblical verse in this painting is:
שיר למעלות לדוד שמחתי באמרים לי בית ה׳ נלך עמדות היו רגלינו בשעריך ירושלים
A Psalm was written by King David – the one who bought the land and laid the foundation for the Bais Hamikdash (The Temple). I am still waiting for the day when his descendant, Moshiach (Messiah), will rule again. We will rise up to Jerusalem once again and everyone will recognize the creator of the world!
תהילים פרק קכב’
א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת לְדָוִד שָׂמַחְתִּי בְּאֹמְרִים לִי בֵּית יְהוָה נֵלֵךְ:
ב עֹמְדוֹת הָיוּ רַגְלֵינוּ בִּשְׁעָרַיִךְ יְרוּשָׁלָם:
ג יְרוּשָׁלַם הַבְּנוּיָה כְּעִיר שֶׁחֻבְּרָה לָּהּ יַחְדָּו:
ד שֶׁשָּׁם עָלוּ שְׁבָטִים שִׁבְטֵי יָהּ עֵדוּת לְיִשְׂרָאֵל לְהֹדוֹת לְשֵׁם יְהוָה:
A song of ascents, by David. I rejoiced when they said to me, “ to the house of Hashem let us go”. Stand firm did our feet within your gates of Jerusalem. Jerusalem built up is like a city that is united together. For their ascended the tribes, the tribes of G-d a testimony for Israel, to give thanks to the name of HaShem for their sat [?] thrones for judgment, thrones for the house of David. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem serene will be those who love you. May there be peace within your wall, serenity within your palaces. For the sake of my brother in and my comrades, I shall speak of peace in your midst. For the sake of the house of Hashem our G-d I will request good for you. (Psalm 122)
