Tiferet of Netzach – “Who is the real winner?” – The beauty of the game is not who wins, rather if the players play with harmony and treat each other with respect. Both players are partners and not fighters. The beauty of the game is that we complete each other and then you become the real winner.

Chesed of Malchut – “Do you really want to give?” – Build a desire to do good and give to others. The more desire to do good you have the more you resemble a king!

Gevurah of Malchut – “Stay focused” – We need to focus on the needs of everyone around us in our life, like a king that takes care of his people and to desire good for others, but that requires a lot of focus and might.

Tiferet of Malchut – “The beauty of hierarchy” – The beauty of a kingdom is that all levels of hierarchy are in harmony and they all work together in beauty to create a better world. Find your place in the hierarchy and respect the ones above you and treat the ones below just the same!

Netzach of Malchut – “Don’t lose control” – One of life’s biggest challenges is not to lose control of your speech, your acts your thoughts and your desires. G-d will test us often because to win this battle you really need to work hard, but once you win, this is real victory!

Hod of Malchut – “Recognise the leader” – At some point in our life we have to lead the way, set an example – be a role model and teach others what we know. Prepare right for this day as G-d trusts you will do the best job to represent him and the Torah in the most appropriate way – Kiddush Hashem!

Yesod of Malchut – “Connect to the Tzaddik” – Even the King or the Tzaddik has a mentor, a guide, his Rebbe. Why? To teach you that YOU must always seek a true guide to teach you and inspire you, and this mentor will only be successful if you humble yourself in front of him and let him guide you. By that you will reach your true potential.

Malchut of Malchut – “Finding TRUE peace” – We must place G-d as our absolute king and only after that can we appoint a flesh and mortal king (Mashiach). But why two kings? The king in flesh must totally be nullified to the king of kings – G-d. Only then will the divine enter into the earthly kingdom to bring peace, prosperity and spiritual enlightenment to the whole world

My wish is that we all refine ourselves and  our Middot (Attributes) so we can make this world a better place and prepare the physical world for the revelation of G-d in this world speedily in our days.

שִׁ֖יר מִזְמ֣וֹר לְאָסָֽף

A psalm, a song of Asaph

אֱלֹהִ֥ים אַל־דֳּמִי־לָ֑ךְ אַל־תֶּֽחֱרַ֖שׁ וְאַל־תִּשְׁקֹ֣ט אֵֽל:

O God, have no silence, do not be silent and do not be still, O God

כִּי־הִנֵּ֣ה אֽ֖וֹיְבֶיךָ יֶֽהֱמָי֑וּן וּ֜מְשַׂנְאֶ֗יךָ נָ֣שְׂאוּ רֹֽאשׁ

For behold, Your enemies stir, and those who hate You raise their heads

עַל־עַ֖מְּךָ יַֽעֲרִ֣ימוּ ס֑וֹד וְ֜יִֽתְיָֽעֲצ֗וּ עַל־צְפוּנֶֽיךָ

Against Your people they plot cunningly, and they take counsel against Your protected ones

אָֽמְר֗וּ לְכ֣וּ וְנַכְחִידֵ֣ם מִגּ֑וֹי וְלֹֽא־יִזָּכֵ֖ר שֵׁם־יִשְׂרָאֵ֣ל עֽוֹד

They said, “Come, let us destroy them from [being] a nation, and the name of Israel will no longer be remembered.”

כִּ֚י נֽוֹעֲצ֣וּ לֵ֣ב יַחְדָּ֑ו עָ֜לֶ֗יךָ בְּרִ֣ית יִכְרֹֽתוּ

For they have taken counsel with one accord; against You they form a pact

אָֽהֳלֵ֣י אֱ֖דוֹם וְיִשְׁמְעֵאלִ֑ים מוֹאָ֥ב וְהַגְרִֽים

The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, Moab and the Hagrites

גְּבָ֣ל וְ֖עַמּוֹן וַֽעֲמָלֵ֑ק פְּ֜לֶ֗שֶׁת עִם־יֹ֥שְׁבֵי צֽוֹר

Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek, Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre

גַּם־אַ֖שּׁוּר נִלְוָ֣ה עִמָּ֑ם הָי֨וּ זְר֖וֹעַ לִבְנֵי־ל֣וֹט סֶֽלָה

Also Assyria joined them; they were the arm of the children of Lot forever

עֲשֵׂה־לָהֶ֥ם כְּמִדְיָ֑ן כְּסִֽיסְרָ֥א כְ֜יָבִ֗ין בְּנַ֣חַל קִישֽׁוֹן

Do to them as [to] Midian; as [to] Sisera, as [to] Jabin in the brook Kishon

נִשְׁמְד֥וּ בְעֵין־דֹּ֑אר הָ֥יוּ דֹּ֜֗מֶן לַאֲדָמָֽה

They were destroyed in En-Dor; they were [as] dung on the ground

שִׁיתֵ֣מוֹ נְ֖דִיבֵמוֹ כְּעֹרֵ֣ב וְכִזְאֵ֑ב וּכְזֶ֥בַח וּ֜כְצַלְמֻנָּ֗ע כָּל־נְסִיכֵֽמוֹ

Make them, their nobles, as Oreb and as Zeeb, and as Zebah and as Zalmuna all their princes

אֲשֶׁ֣ר אָֽ֖מְרוּ נִ֣ירְשָׁה לָּ֑נוּ אֵ֖ת נְא֣וֹת אֱלֹהִֽים

Who said, “Let us inherit for ourselves the dwellings of God.”

אֱֽלֹהַ֗י שִׁיתֵ֥מוֹ כַגַּלְגַּ֑ל כְּ֜קַ֗שׁ לִפְנֵי־רֽוּחַ

My God, make them like thistles, like stubble before the wind

כְּאֵ֥שׁ תִּבְעַר־יָ֑עַר וּ֜כְלֶֽהָבָ֗ה תְּלַהֵ֥ט הָרִֽים

As a fire that burns in a forest and as a flame that burns mountains

כֵּן תִּרְדְּפֵ֣ם בְּסַֽעֲרֶ֑ךָ וּבְסוּפָֽתְךָ֥ תְבַֽהֲלֵֽם

So will You pursue them with Your tempest, and with Your whirlwind You will terrify them

מַלֵּ֣א פְנֵיהֶ֣ם קָל֑וֹן וִֽיבַקְשׁ֖וּ שִׁמְךָ֣ יְהֹוָֽה

Fill their faces with shame, and they will seek Your countenance, O Lord

יֵבֹ֖שׁוּ וְיִבָּֽהֲל֥וּ עֲדֵי־עַ֗ד וְֽיַחְפְּר֥וּ וְיֹאבֵֽדוּ

Let them be ashamed and terrified forever; let them be disgraced and perish

וְיֵֽדְע֗וּ כִּי־אַתָּ֬ה שִׁמְךָ֣ יְהֹוָ֣ה לְבַדֶּ֑ךָ עֶ֜לְי֗וֹן עַל־כָּל־הָאָֽרֶץ

Let them know that You-Your name alone is the Lord, Most High over all the earth

O God, if You keep [a record of] iniquities, O Lord, who will stand?

כִּֽי־עִמְּךָ֥ הַסְּלִיחָ֑ה לְ֜מַעַ֗ן תִּוָּרֵֽא

קִוִּ֣יתִי יְ֖הֹוָה קִוְּתָ֣ה נַפְשִׁ֑י וְלִדְבָ֘ר֥וֹ הוֹחָֽלְתִּי

I hoped, O Lord; yea, my soul hoped, and I wait for His word

נַפְשִׁ֥י לַֽאדֹנָ֑י מִשֹּֽׁמְרִ֥ים לַ֜בֹּ֗קֶר שֹֽׁמְרִ֥ים לַבֹּֽקֶר

My soul is to the Lord among those who await the morning, those who await the morning

יַחֵ֥ל יִשְׂרָאֵ֗ל אֶל־יְהֹ֫וָה כִּֽי־עִם־יְהֹוָ֥ה הַחֶ֑סֶד וְהַרְבֵּ֖ה עִמּ֣וֹ פְדֽוּת

מַשְׂכִּ֥יל לְדָוִ֑ד בִּֽהְיוֹת֖וֹ בַמְּעָרָ֣ה תְפִלָּֽה

A maskil of David, when he was in the cave, a prayer

קוֹלִי אֶל־יְהֹוָ֣ה אֶזְעָ֑ק ק֜וֹלִ֗י אֶל־יְ֘הֹוָ֥ה אֶתְחַנָּֽן

[With] my voice, I cry out to the Lord; [with] my voice, I supplicate the Lord

אֶשְׁפֹּ֣ךְ לְפָנָ֣יו שִׂיחִ֑י צָֽ֜רָתִ֗י לְפָ֘נָ֥יו אַגִּֽיד

I pour out before Him my speech; my distress I recite before Him

בְּהִתְעַטֵּ֬ף עָלַ֜י | רוּחִ֗י וְאַתָּה֘ יָדַ֪עְתָּ נְתִֽיבָ֫תִ֥י בְּאֹֽרַח־ז֥וּ אֲהַלֵּ֑ךְ טָֽמְנ֖וּ פַ֥ח לִֽי

When my spirit enwraps itself upon me, and You know my path. In whichever way I go, they have hidden a snare for me

הַבֵּ֚יט יָמִ֨ין | וּרְאֵה֘ וְאֵין־לִ֪י מַ֫כִּ֥יר אָבַ֣ד מָנ֣וֹס מִמֶּ֑נִּי אֵ֖ין דּוֹרֵ֣שׁ לְנַפְשִֽׁי

Looking to the right, I see that no one recognizes me; escape is lost from me; no one seeks my soul

זָעַ֥קְתִּי אֵלֶ֗יךָ יְהֹ֫וָ֥ה אָ֖מַרְתִּי אַתָּ֣ה מַחְסִּ֑י חֶ֜לְקִ֗י בְּאֶ֣רֶץ הַֽחַיִּים

I cried out to You, O Lord; I said, “You are my refuge, my lot in the land of the living.”

הַקְשִׁ֚יבָה | אֶל־רִנָּתִי֘ כִּֽי־דַלּ֪וֹתִי מְ֫אֹ֥ד הַצִּילֵ֥נִי מֵרֹֽדְפַ֑י כִּ֖י אָֽמְצ֣וּ מִמֶּֽנִּי

Hearken to my cry for I have become very low; save me from my pursuers for they have overpowered me

ה֘וֹצִ֚יאָה מִמַּסְגֵּ֨ר | נַפְשִׁי֘ לְהוֹד֪וֹת אֶת־שְׁ֫מֶ֥ךָ בִּ֖י יַכְתִּ֣רוּ צַדִּיקִ֑ים כִּ֖י תִגְמֹ֣ל עָלָֽי

Take my soul out of confinement to give thanks to Your name; because of me the righteous will crown You, because You will recompense me
