Matot: “Tribes”
Numbers 30:2 - 32:42

And Moses shared with the Israelite tribes
the commandments of the Most High

The sacredness of promises and vows

Whether blossoming between man and woman

Lips shall utter forth their truth

Their strength

The love that gave rise to them

From the moment they are offered life
they are to be treasured


Between woman and man

A father’s daughter
or a man seeking love’s partner

Such vows are granted from above

Wrapped in G-d’s love
and given with Heaven’s joy
