He [Abraham] was sitting in the opening of the tent....
Sarah heard from the opening of the tent.
(Genesis 18:1, 10)
Rabbi Judah opened
" 'Her husband is known in the gates
when he sits among the elders of the land'
Come and see:
The Blessed Holy One has ascended in glory.
He is hidden, concealed, far beyond.
There is no one in the world, nor has there ever been,
who can understand His wisdom or withstand Him.
He is hidden, concealed, transcendent, beyond, beyond.
The beings up above and the creatures down below—
none of them can comprehend.
All they can say is:
'Blessed be the Presence of YHVH in His place'
The ones below proclaim that He is above:
'His Presence is above the heavens'
the ones above proclaim that He is below:
'Your Presence is over all the earth'
Finally all of them, above and below, declare:
'Blessed be the Presence of YHVH wherever He is!'
For He is unknowable.
No one has ever been able to identify Him.
