The Torah In Haiku: Mishpatim

The elders "meet" G-d
A vision on sapphire stones
Heaven's pure essence

Exodus 24:9-10: And Moses went up, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel. And they saw the G-d of Israel; and under G-d's feet was something like a sapphire stone, like the essence of heaven in purity
