Israel/Palestine (6th Century) Timeline
Jewish


PC
The poetry of Yannai was virtually unknown until he was rediscovered in the early 20th century by scholars.

Yannai lived in Palestine in the 6th century. An Ashkenazi tradition says that Yannai was the teacher of Eleazar ben Kallir, the best known of the classical paytanim (Jewish liturgical poets). There has even been a legend suggesting that Yannai grew jealous of his talented student and killed him by placing a scorpion in ben Kallir's shoe, though the written tale calls the story into question by adding, "May God forgive all those who say this of Yannai -- if it did not really happen."

Yannai is now thought of as the first of the great classical paytanim, and the first to use rhyme and acrostics in his works, which later became the standard in this form of Jewish sacred poetry.

1:Now an angel of the Lord appeared to Moses in a blazing fire -- a fire that devours fire; a fire that burns in things dry and moist; a fire that glows amid snow and ice; a fire that is like a crouching lion; a fire that reveals itself in many forms; a fire that is, and never expires; a fire that shines and roars; a fire that blazes and sparkles; a fire that flies in a storm wind; a fire that burns without wood; a fire that renews itself every day; a fire that is not fanned by fire; a fire that billows like palm branches; a fire whose sparks are flashes of lightning; a fire black as a raven; a fire, curled, like the colours of the rainbow!

2:From Heaven to the Heaven of Heavens; from the Heaven of Heavens to the Dark Clouds; from the Dark Clouds to the Abode; from the Abode to the Dwelling-place; from the Dwelling-place to the Skies; from the Skies to the Plains; from the Plains to the height of the Throne; and from the height of the Throne to the Chariot -- who can be compared to You, who is your equal? who has seen You, who has reached You? who can hold his head high, who can lift up his eyes? who can question, who can defy? who can fathom, who can calculate? who can be proud, who can be haughty? who is like You? For You ride on a cherub and fly on the wind; Your road is in the whirlwind, Your way is in the storm; Your path is through waters. Fires are Your emissaries -- thousands of thousands and myriads of myriads, who are changed into men, changed into women, changed into winds, changed into demons; who assume all shapes and fulfill every mission, with fear, dread, awe, trembling, terror, trepidation, they open...
