“It is a taste of that time after time when the Messiah will come, for each Sabbath brings with it a morsel of the sweet respite of that longed-for timelessness in the week’s portion that comes around as surely as the earth revolves around the sun and the stars spin in the sky, marking the heavens with vowel points and cantilation marks the angels know how to read.”
David R. Slavitt, The Book of Lamentations (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2009) 53.
