Alef-Bet/Psalms (Cycles of 22 days):

1st day of the 7th cycle. Alef within Mem and Nun:

Psalm 145:

תְּהִלָּה לְדָוִד אֲרוֹמִמְךָ אֱלוֹהַי הַמֶּלֶךְ וַאֲבָרֲכָה שִׁמְךָ לְעוֹלָם וָעֶד:

A praise of David. I shall exalt You, my God the King, and I shall bless Your name forever and ever.

Psalm 119:

אוֹדְךָ בְּיֹשֶׁר לֵבָב בְּלָמְדִי מִשְׁפְּטֵי צִדְקֶךָ:

I shall thank You with an upright heart when I learn the judgments of Your righteousness.


Then the children of Israel came into the midst of the sea on dry land, and the waters were to them as a wall from their right and from their left.


3. O Heeder of prayer, to You does all flesh come.
4. Matters of sin overwhelm me; You will pardon our transgressions.
5. Fortunate is [the nation] whom You choose and draw near, to dwell in Your courtyards; may we be sated with the goodness of Your House, with the holiness of Your Sanctuary.
6. Answer us with awesome deeds as befits Your righteousness, O God of our salvation, the security of all [who inhabit] the ends of the earth and distant seas.
7. With His strength He prepares [rain for] the mountains; He is girded with might.
8. He quiets the roar of the seas, the roar of their waves and the tumult of nations.


ולכן נקראות אברי דמלכא, דרך משל, כמו שאברי גוף האדם הם לבוש לנפשו, ובטלים לגמרי אליה מכל וכל
Hence the mitzvot are figuratively described as “organs of the King.” For just as the organs of the human body are a garment for its soul, and are completely and utterly surrendered to it,

If one finds an animal belonging to a colleague fallen under its load, it is a mitzvah to unload and reload it even if its owner is not present, for "You shall certainly help" and "You shall certainly lift up..." implies that one must fulfill these mitzvot in all situations.

Hayom Yom:

The routine of the day begins with saying modeh ani (Siddur Tehilat HaShem p. 6, "I acknowledge before You, living and eternal King etc..."). This is said before the morning laving of the hands, even while the hands are "impure." The reason is that all the impurites in the world do not defile a Jew's "I acknowledge." He might lack one thing or another, but his modeh ani remains intact.

Daf Yomi:
The Satan was concerned that Hash-m's love of Iyov might detract from his love for Avraham
Rav Acha bar Yakov expounded like this, and the Satan kissed his knees.
