Praises to the people who know the shofar’s cry; HASHEM by the illumination of Your countenance they walk. In Your Name they rejoice all day long, and through Your righteousness they are exalted.

Come, now, let us reason together, says HaShem. If your sins are like scarlet they will become white as snow; if they have become red as crimson, they will become [white] as wool. Isaiah 1:18 Stone TNK
