Hesed Shel Emmanuel

Hesed Shel Emmanuel

Betrayal, mockery, abandonment
Fists, whips, chains, thorns,
Nails, nakedness, shame

What would you endure for love?

The title of this 4 & 20 style poem is transliterated Hebrew of my favorite Hebrew word and my favorite name for God. The translation is, "The steadfast love of God-with-us."
