The Word of God says

Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai?

Photo taken by myself in December 2019, Jerusalem,
Capital of Israel
A powerful message about not forgetting that we are standing on holy ground!

Psalm 24 (0) By David. A psalm:

(1) The earth is Adonai’s, with all that is in it,
the world and those who live there;
for he set its foundations on the seas
and established it on the rivers.

Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai?
Who can stand in his holy place?
Those with clean hands and pure hearts,
who don’t make vanities the purpose of their lives
or swear oaths just to deceive.

They will receive a blessing from Adonai
and justice from God, who saves them.
Such is the character of those who seek him,
of Ya‘akov, who seeks your face. (Selah)

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai, strong and mighty,
Adonai, mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, you gates!
Lift them up, everlasting doors,
so that the glorious king can enter!
10 Who is he, this glorious king?
Adonai-Tzva’ot —
he is the glorious king. (Selah)

מן המיצר אלוקיי קראתי אליך

Min hamitsar elokai karati elecha

In distress my God I called to you

הגשר עודנו צר

Hagesher odenu tsar

The bridge is still narrow

איך אוכל בלעדיך

Aich ochal biladecha

How can I do it without you

לעבור לחצות

La’avor lachtsot

To cross this divide

איך אוכל זאת לעשות

Aich ochal zot la’asot How can I do this

אני יודע שאוזניך קשובות

Ani yodea she’oznecha kashuvot

I know that your ears are attentive

עד יעבור זעם

Ad ya’avor zaam

Until the storm passes

היכן אוכל להסתתר

Heichan ochel lehistater

Where can I hide

וכמו בכל פעם אצטרך בך להיעזר

Uchmo bechol paam etstarech becha leheazer

And like every time I need your aid

כי בלעדיך כלום לא שווה

Ki biladecha klum lo shave Because besides you nothing is worthy

ואני יושב ומקווה V

eani yoshev umikave And I sit and hope

שיבוא יום

Sheyavo yom That day will come

ותתגלה

Vetitgale And you’ll be revealed

אל יושב בסתר עליון

El yoshev baseter aliyon

God seated hidden on high

הלא שמעת נאקת בניך

Halo shamata neakat banecha Have you not heard the groaning of your sons?

על פי הטבע וההגיון

Al pee hateva vehahigayon

According to nature and logic

מזמן אבדנו

Mizman avadnu

We would be lost long ago

לולא רחמך

Lule rachamecha

If not for your mercy

אנא תן תחת כנפיך מחסה

Ana ten tachat knafecha machase

Please give under your wings shelter

ולמעננו נס תעשה

Ulemanenu nes taase

And for us do a miracle
