Shelter Of The Most High

י' באדר תשס"ז

In my previous entry, I noted 3 Hebrew shorashim connected to the concept of Llyn Tegid. One of those shorashim is לנן. A word derived from this root is found in Tehilim 91:1 -

ישב בסתר עליון בצל שדי יתלונן
O you who dwell in the shelter of the Most High and abide in the protection of Shaddai ...

The shoresh לנן is similar to the shoresh לבן of Levanon. The difference between them is the core letter of the root.

The central letter nun נ of לנן kabbalistically corresponds to one's messianic spark and thus, to the soul level of yechidah.

The central letter beit ב of לבן kabbalistically relates to one's purpose in creation - to make a Divine Dwelling Place in this lowest world.

The root לנן means dwelling. The root לבן means purifying.

Consequently, we can see that while the letter beit pertains more specifically to the directive to make a Divine Dwelling Place, the letter nun pertains more specifically to fulfillment of that directive.
