Last month, in honor of the eclipse of a full moon, I shared a re-translation of the first part of Psalm 19.
This month, in the Jewish calendar, is a leap month, a bonus moon of Adar. The sages tell us the "one who enters the month of Adar must strive to increase joy." The remainder of this psalm includes two passages that are used regularly in Jewish liturgy (one of which also found its way into a well-know reggae tune, thanks to Bob Marley). So here's all three parts of that psalm (the divisions are mine).
May the words and meditations of my mouth help grow the joy in our hearts.
PSALM 19 – A Song Striving to Sustain Love
The story of divine glory is written in the skies
Standing beneath the expansive dome, heavenly handiwork,
Tales of Wonder are told without words: Honor-Splendor in One / כבוד-אל.
In the shadow of the earth, witness the moon shining still,
Revealing new dimensions of beauty above and below
Radiant light reverberating without and within.
The day-to-day play of a planet spinning ‘round
The night-to-night way of concealing-revealing light,
