About "Keepers of the Wall"

Song of Songs 5:7

נָשְׂאוּ אֶת-רְדִידִי מֵעָלַי, שֹׁמְרֵי הַחֹמוֹת

The work “took” in Hebrew can also be understood as “endure”. This changes the meaning in this particular piece a lot for me.

I am fascinated by the fact that because most of us can’t understand Biblical Hebrew, we take the usual translations for granted...but our understanding is so much more when we go deeper into these mystical texts.

In the above piece, my notion was that the connotation of having one’s veil taken is of lack of choice and a violation, but when one looks at it as the veil being endured (or suffered, which mean to bear, or carry, as another nuance of the Hebrew) then the sense of it becomes that the veil, our personal mantle, was held on our behalf.

Earlier in that particular verse, it is said that “I was wounded by the guards” and my version is that that is part of our testing for our growth.

I can sit with a letter, or piece for weeks

The snake is the Shamanic medicine about transformation and power.
