Bless his holy name forever

We listen for the Word in the words of the prophets but sometimes we hear and read the Word in strange places. Yesterday, on Santa Lucia Day, I read these words form the Book of Tobit at the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibition at the Jewish Museum in NYC: “they will bless his holy name forever.” The Septuagint version reads: “And the blessed will bless his holy name forever and ever.”

This is a work in progress.
