Psalm 1 describes the person who is happy or blessed: “His delight is in the Torah of the Lord, and in his Torah he meditates day and night.” Rashi comments, “In the beginning it is the Torah of the Lord, and after he has toiled to master it , it is called his own Torah.” Meditation is the way in which we make the Word of God our own. 1.879 palabras más
