Ha’zainu means to ‘hear’ and is directed to a corporate body. The Song of Moshe recounts Isra’el’s sins and the consequences; he includes hope for the future redemption. Moshe calls on heaven and earth, the witnesses of Adonai, to hear his words and ask they be like rain and dew –– living water that brings forth life.
144,000 harpists sing their spontaneous song of praise, the Tabernacle in heaven opens and seven angels with seven plagues come out. These harpists are dressed in clean, white linen with gold belts around their chests. The Hebrew word for clean is tahor and means ‘pure’ and ‘clean.’ This is a purity that is ritually ‘clean’ according to Adonai’s Torah. When they come out of the Tabernacle, they become the object of reverent fear as they wait to receive their military orders from their Commander. Each of the seven messengers is given a bowl filled with the fury of Adonai.
