A verse to reflect on

.
A window in the Great Synagogue of Jerusalem.
Some colors were even reflected on the side for James' Weekend Reflections.

The Hebrew says "Beyadcha afkid ruchi," meaning, "Into thy hand I commit my spirit."
Psalms 31:5a
.
Shabbat shalom.

Wonderful image of the window, Dina.
The verse of the psalm is really to reflect on.
***
Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed his last. (Luke 23:46)

Such stain-glass window have a magnificent effect in many ways - well spotted on the wall.

PS Thank you for the comment - a water mark must be reflected too...

When I arrive here, Dina, I catch up on every word and peruse every photo. You give me much to think about with every post.

Subtle and lovely reflection, Dina!

Dina, This is a beautiful posting and the words appropriate for the events of Good Friday for Christians. Reflected in the Great Synagogue it takes on an even deeper meaning that is for each and every one of us to commend our spirit and our lives.

So much symbolism packed into that window! Reminds me of the fabulous stained glass windows in the synagogues in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. So much of the glass was made there. Have you ever seen any of them?

My dream are to see Chagall's windows! Someday.........
