Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses upon the two verses found within the first benediction of the shema: Isaiah 6:3 (&t;Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory,&t; known as the &t;trisagion&t;) and Ezekiel 3:12 (&t;Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place,&t; henceforth termed &t;the Ezekiel verse&t;). Each describes the speech of the heavenly angels as they praise the Lord, and together the verses comprise the section of the liturgy known as the Kedushah de-Yotser. The tendencies that have been examined in this chapter are quite prevalent within Suliman's poetry. The many congregations that utilized Suliman's poetry as part of their Sabbath liturgy were afforded an opportunity, to transcend their typically passive role during the recitation of the yotsrot and to become active participants within the drama of the Biblical lection.
