2  From Tzion, perfect in beauty, Hashem appeared

ב  מִצִּיּוֹן מִכְלַל־יֹפִי אֱלֹהִים הוֹפִיעַ׃

 50:2   From Tzion, perfect in beauty

The Sages of the Talmud wonder (Yoma 54b), from where did God fashion the entire world? “Rabbi Eliezer says: The world was created from its center… Rabbi Yehoshua said: The world was created from its sides… Rabbi Yitzchak the Smith said: The Holy One, blessed be He, cast a stone into the ocean, from which the world then was founded… But the Sages said: The world was created from Zion, as it is said: … ‘Out of Tzion, the perfection of the beauty,’ that means from Tzion was the beauty of the world perfected.”

  • So it was said the world was created by God from Zion out from its center. I have never herd that before. Yet it is very beautifully said. A stone thrown into the center of the ocean. the stone being Zion. The perfection of the world was thus started. The garden of Eden thus was created. Blessed Be in God Name was all created by he.
