January 6: Isaiah 60:1-3 Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will appear over you. Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
Chanan Mazal - From the Rising of the Sun | ממזרח שמש עד מבואו - From the rising of the sun till its setting, the name of the Lord is to be praised” Psalm 113:3 - The Hebrew word for east, Mizrach, is based on the root word “zarach”, meaning “to shine”. Thus, this verse can also translate as “From east to west, the Lord’s name is to be praised.”
