Tehillim: Psalm for the Sixth Day of the Week – Psalm 93 – Friday

Shalom Everyone! Psalm 93 is traditionally recited as the “psalm of the day” (Shir Shel Yom) for the sixth day of the week, which corresponds to Friday on the Gregorian calendar. The psalm is recited at the end of Friday morning prayer services. According to Jewish tradition, Psalm 93 was chosen for recital on sixth day of the week because of it’s relation to the sixth day of Creation. In a work of Jewish Talmudic literature called the “Baraita,” Rabbi Yehuda, in the name of Rabbi Akiva, gives the following rationale:

“On Friday, Adonai malach gei’ut laveish (יהוה מלך גאות לבש, “Hashem has reigned, he had donned grandeur”) is recited, in reference to the sixth day of Creation, on which He completed his work and reigned over his creations.”
