"Speak now to Bnei-Yisrael saying,
`Surely you must keep My Shabbatot, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, so you may know that I am ADONAI who sanctifies you.
--Exodus 31:13 TLV
In everything give thanks; for this is God`s will for you in Messiah Yeshua.
--1 Thessalonians 5:18 TLV
`Abide in My love! If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father`s commandments and abide in His love. These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and your joy may be full.`
---John 15:9~11I was going to quote only the first verse, but its all so beautiful,
Ba-rukh at-tah `Adonai `e-lo-hei-nu me-lekh ha-`o-lam
bid-va-ro nih-yeh she-hak-khol
"Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, through whose word everything is created."
Blessings and Shalom!!
O give thanks unto the LORD, for He is good
For His lovingkindness endures forever. ---Psalm 107:1
Often you see bento referred to as `o-bento`.
`O` is an honorific prefix used in Japanese put before a word to indicate respect. It is also like a way of giving thanks and humbling ourselves before another. In the Japanese language that honor and respect for others is built in. The honorific `O` preceding the word is used for certain choice foods and other things that go with foods, like in
Japanese tea, o-cha,
and chopsticks , o-hashi,
`O-nigiri` are rice balls. The action of shaping them with the hand is the verb `nigeru` and the `o` in front of it makes it into `onigiri.`
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth and the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Thus the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it Holy. ---Exodus 8:8,11
