The first six verses of Mizmor 090 were posted today (Thursday, January 8). This mizmor was composed by Moshe Rabbeinu in the form of a tefillah. It is addressed to Hashem, but like every tefillah it is designed to raise the consciousness of the person saying it. In this case, the message is the great value of time as an essential dimension of human existence. We are given enough time to fulfill our mission in this world, but it doesn’t stand still. It is like a wonderful rushing stream, but then it runs out and whatever has not been accomplished remains unaccomplished.
News Item 106. Mizmor 090 (Time is a Rushing Stream)
