Sefirah and Aleph-Bet Combination for Friday, the 26th of Adar II, 5774

Tonight is the third day of Week 26 and the thirty-first day of the cycle of Netzach (Victory/Endurance), Tiferet shebeHod shebeNetzach, Balance/Beauty within Glory/Acknowledgement within Victory/Endurance.

Tonight is also the second day of the ninth 22-day cycle of the year, related to the letters Peh and Tzadik The following verse from Chapter 1 of the Book of Lamentations is connected to the second letter, the Beit:

2. She weeps, yea, she weeps in the night, and her tears are on her cheek; she has no comforter among all her lovers; all her friends have betrayed her; they have become her enemies.

ב. בָּכוֹ תִבְכֶּה בַּלַּיְלָה וְדִמְעָתָהּ עַל לֶחֱיָהּ אֵין לָהּ מְנַחֵם מִכָּל אֹהֲבֶיהָ כָּל רֵעֶיהָ בָּגְדוּ בָהּ הָיוּ לָהּ לְאֹיְבִים:

Perhaps we can interpret this verse in a positive light (See Book 2):

2. She weeps [tears of joy], yea, she weeps in the night, and her tears are on her cheek;  "Ein" (the level of complete nullification) is for her a comforter more than her lovers and friends. They [once] betrayed her; they were [once] her enemies.
