How lovely are your tents, O Jacob, your dwellings, O Israel - (Num 24:5)

But I, in the abundance of your steadfast love, will enter your house.

I will bow down toward your holy Temple in the fear of you - (Psa 5:8)

O HASHEM (ADONAI), I love the habitation of your house and the place where

your glory dwells. - (Psa 26:8)

But I will bow down and kneel before HASHEM (ADONAI) my Maker. - (Psa 95:6)

As for me, may my prayer to You, HASHEM (ADONAI) be at a favorable time;

O G-d, in Your abundant lovingkindness, answer me with the truth of Your salvation!
