Pesukei d’Zimrah: Ashrei: Chidah: The House

“Praiseworthy are those who dwell in Your house.” The Rama miFano (Ma’amar Chikur ha-Din, Part One) points out that the verse does not say, “bi’veitecha,” ‘in Your house, but, “beitecha,” Your house, for this verse refers to people who become the Throne and Sanctuary of God. “This is my Lord, and I will glorify Him – vi-anveihu,” I will become His “naveh,’ His place.


We can recite this verse as a prayer to merit being so attached to God that our entire being reflects His Presence and become His place in this world. (Yosef Tehillot 84)
