Song of Songs:

The watchmen who patrol the city found me; they smote me and wounded me; the watchmen of the walls took my jewelry off me. מְצָאֻנִי הַשֹּׁמְרִים הַסֹּבְבִים בָּעִיר הִכּוּנִי פְצָעוּנִי נָשְׂאוּ אֶת רְדִידִי מֵעָלַי שֹׁמְרֵי הַחֹמוֹת:
Hayom Yom


On the eve of Shavuot 5557 (1797) the Alter Rebbe taught:
Sanctify them today and tomorrow and they shall cleanse their garments.    "Sanctify them today and tomorrow," is done from Above, but "they shall cleanse their garments" - one must do himself. This was the entire teaching.
The Tzemach Tzedek elaborated: "Sanctify them" was said by G‑d to Moshe. The extension of Moshe is in every generation and they are able to sanctify the "today" and the "tomorrow"; but for this is needed "..and they shall cleanse their garments" - the garments of thought, speech and deed. This must be done by each person on his own.
