Tehilim 145: "Ashrei" (Part 8 - MORE Radak on 145:8-10)
Show Notes

Tonight (2/24/21) in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur we continued our pasuk-by-pasuk analysis of Ashrei. We set out to review what we did last time, and ended up diving even deeper into those same three pesukim with the Radak! After a few new observations at the beginning, we reread the Radak, then took a detour to review the Ralbag's take on the middos Ha'Kadosh Baruch Hu which are mentioned in 145:8. We then started to look up the other passages in the Radak's commentary referenced by the footnote, which led to some AMAZING examples - and we didn't even finish with them! To be continued next week (בג"ה).
