Ten Things of Thankful: November 27

It's getting colder where we live, but (1) we still enjoy sunny days, when (2) I take a long walk on the riverbanks.



(3) One thing led to another, and (4) my desire to learn Hebrew has been rekindled.  Nowadays, we have access to a lot of online resources, including (5)Blue Letter Bible, (6) Interlinear Bibles,  and (7) Audio Bible in Hebrew
This week, I am reviewing several Psalms that I memorized about two decades ago, including (8) Psalm 100, which is for Thanksgiving. (8') I've also found the following video:


(9) My fingers are getting a little better than two months ago, and (10) I managed to serve as the organist at the worship service last Sunday, playing only the soprano and the bass parts, instead of the four voices.

More Resources for Learning to Read Psalm 23 in Hebrew

 








A Memory

 

On a sunny afternoon in November, Hiroko went into a small coffee shop near the railway station by the sea, and sat at a white table by the window. 

There were no other customers there. 

On the wall in front of her was a picture of a moonlit oasis like the one she had seen in a book when she was a little girl.



The scene reminded her of a song that her aunt would often sing to her, a Japanese song titled 'Tsuki-no-Sabaku,' which can be literally translated as 'The Desert of the Moon.' 

As a child, she had thought it was about a desert on the moon, but in fact, it was about a moonlit desert on earth, where a lonely prince and a lonely princess were traveling on camels together. 

Hiroko found herself humming the beautiful and sorrowful tune softly.

Enjoying Psalm 23 in Hebrew

I've started studying the Book of Psalms again, and I enjoy listening to the Psalms in Hebrew, thanks to Audio Bible in Hebrew


For example, let's listen to Psalm 23 in Hebrew

In fact, I memorized it about 20 years ago, when I began to teach myself Hebrew. I can recite it any time I like. I also love listening to it on the audio file, reading it aloud simultaneously. 

We can also study the Psalms in its written form online.
