Omer 2016 Day 26: Miriam


Day 26: Hod in Netzach, Glory in Victory

After their escape from the Egyptians at the Red Sea, the Israelites rejoiced. Miriam led the celebration with this song, singing God's praises.
"The Miriam the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women went out after her in dance with timbrels. And Miriam chanted:
Sing to the Lord, for He has triumphed gloriously; Horse and driver He has hurled into the sea." (Exodus 15:20-21)
In our own victories, we should all be like Miriam, moved to dancing and singing, recognizing the glory of the situation and how we arrived there.
