The Power of Prayer ✡ “Bless Hashem, O My Soul. Hallelujah” – Israel365

May sinners disappear from the earth, and the wicked be no more. Bless Hashem, O my soul. Hallelujah.
Psalms 104:35 (The Israel Bible™)

יִתַּמּוּ חַטָּאִים מִן־הָאָרֶץ וּרְשָׁעִים עוֹד אֵינָם בָּרֲכִי נַפְשִׁי אֶת־יְהוָה הַלְלוּ־יָהּ
Hear the verse in Hebrew

yi-TA-mu kha-ta-EEM min ha-A-retz ur-sha-EEM OD ay-NAM ba-r’-KHEE naf-SHEE
et a-do-NAI ha-l’-lu-YAH

May Sinners Disappear From the Earth

Jewish tradition tells a story about a remarkable woman name Bruriah, who lived in the Land of Israel shortly after the second Temple period with her husband, the great sage Rabbi Meir. Rabbi Meir had been abused by vagrants, and prayed for their destruction. Bruriah quoted this psalm, and noted that the above verse should be understood as saying, “May sins disappear from the earth,” and does not wish for the actual destruction of the sinners themselves. Once their evil behavior ends, they will no longer be sinners, for they will return to Hashem (God). Rabbi Meir accepted his wife’s advice and prayed for his enemies to repent. Hashem accepted his prayers and the sinners returned from their evil ways.
