104. פָּתַח רַבִּי אֶלְעָזָר וְאָמַר, (תהלים קג) בָּרְכוּ ה’ מַלְאָכָיו גִּבֹּרֵי כֹחַ וְגוֹ’. דָּוִד הַמֶּלֶךְ הִזְמִין לְבָרֵךְ אֶת הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא, וְהִזְמִין אֶת כֹּחוֹת הַשָּׁמַיִם, שֶׁהֵם כּוֹכָבִים וּמַזָּלוֹת וּשְׁאָר חֲיָלוֹת, וְשִׁתֵּף אֶת נִשְׁמָתוֹ אִתָּם לְבָרֵךְ אֶת הַקָּדוֹשׁ בָּרוּךְ הוּא. זֶהוּ שֶׁכָּתוּב בָּרְכוּ ה’ כָּל מַעֲשָׂיו בְּכָל מְקֹמוֹת מֶמְשַׁלְתּוֹ בָּרְכִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת ה’. חָתַם בְּנַפְשׁוֹ כָּל הַבְּרָכוֹת.
The Judge Gideon killed many of the Moabites but some of them had merits and God didn’t let them be killed to allow them to do more good in the world. God never forgets those who harm his people but before he takes vengeance or ‘punishment’, he holds his ‘anger’ until their good comes to the world.
The Yenukah closed this study telling the rabbis that they can use this study as a tool of war (against the negative side).
“בָּרֲכוּ יְהוָה מַלְאָכָיו גִּבֹּרֵי כֹחַ עֹשֵׂי דְבָרוֹ לִשְׁמֹעַ בְּקוֹל דְּבָרוֹ.”
“Bless YHVH, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!”
King David invites the angels to bless God together with the heavens, the stars, Zodiac constellations and others. He joins them with his soul to bless the Holy One Blessed be He.
“בָּרֲכִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת יְהוָה יְהוָה אֱלֹהַי גָּדַלְתָּ מְּאֹד הוֹד וְהָדָר לָבָשְׁתָּ.”
“Bless YHVH, O my soul! O YHVH my God, You are very great; You are clothed with splendor and majesty,”
King David made blessings with his soul to glorify God and by that he could make greater connections and adhere to the light that flows to this world.
