The Psalmist could have written this verse for Meir Abelson personally. Meir lay in the cock-pit of his crashed plane. It was during World War II when Meir was a British Air Force pilot. His plane had come down and his crew lay dead around him. Meir could not move and thinking he was going to die, be began to recite the Shema. But God had other plans. “I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.” (Psalm 28:15)
Here is Meir’s story written by his own hand.
