News Item 171. Mizmor 099 (Contemplating Holiness)

The interim draft of  Mizmor 099 was finalized today (Thursday September 3). The PDF version is now available for printing.  

The mizmor consists of three parts, all of which are united by a common theme of Hashem’s holiness as King of the World, the King of Justice, and the King of His people. Each of the three parts ends with a declaration of His holiness. 
The last part speaks of the high standards maintained by the leaders of the Jewish people, especially Moshe, Aharon, and Shmuel. But even they are held to account for their slightest misstep, despite the fact that Hashem responds to their supplications that the people be forgiven their sins.
