Today is forty days, which is five weeks and five days of the Omer.
Hayom arba’im yom shehem chamishah shavuot v’chamishah yomim la-omer.
Adonai, Adonai, my saving strength, my helmet shielding my head in battle, Adonai, don’t grant the wicked their wishes; make their plot fail, so they won’t grow proud. (Selah)
(Psalm 140:7-8 CJB)
