10  All my bones shall say, “Hashem, who is like You? You save the poor from one stronger than he, the poor and needy from his despoiler.”

י  כָּל עַצְמוֹתַי תֹּאמַרְנָה יְהֹוָה מִי כָמוֹךָ מַצִּיל עָנִי מֵחָזָק מִמֶּנּוּ וְעָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן מִגֹּזְלוֹ׃

 35:10   All my bones shall say, “Hashem, who is like You?”

David, surrounded by enemies and troubles, seeks out Hashem and prays for greener pastures. He poetically yearns for a time when all of his bones will engage in praising God. The Sages wonder what situation would allow him to serve Hashem with all his bones. Some commandments are done with one’s mind, others with the mouth and some with one’s limbs, but what commandment encompasses the entire body? The answer is the command to settle the Land of Israel. King David was yearning to live in Israel, where one’s entire body is completely immersed in the land, God’s chosen land.

  • I seek only to serve you my one and only God, David cries out. With enemies all about me ,I seek only you to make them tremble and be my sword and shield. David looks forward to a time when all his bones will even serve God in all there essence. I understand this concept. I feel the very same. Being a child of God is a life long process. It is not an over night thing. You grow and learn in your faith. David did, and his faith grew over the years. David's faith also waned at times, he feel short and he paid the price however he learned and grew even stronger from those falls. Israel was everything to David. He was the land, the people, the tradition. He was the water the earth, the wind and the ski. He was one of the Chosen of our God. He who was the King of this Israel.
    This land that God had chosen for them. They would become one another, interchangeable forever bound. Carl
