hella real jewish ritual
waterpuller's light #20 נצבים-וילך
20 august 2020
three selections from deuteronomy 29:9-31:30 with chanting from aurora josephson , sounds from milka sigalla and translations by mike zhai
The tally tells plague, hot breath engulfing the land.The day dawns red on another earth, grief churns the spent soil.The light we know we enact, rolling through generations.The mystery we leave hidden.
If she is up in the sky, will you follow her up into the sky?If she is on the other side of the ocean, will you follow her across the ocean?She lives in your heart, your mouth. They command you to follow.
Come to me you wise men, These words written on sky and earth teach to those in your care.For I know that after my death Evil seen through the eyes will provoke hands to anger, And you will stray from the path I have shown, and stamp it out entirely. A wrathful god is sings this song through me: O hear, o hear!
