f. = ancient angel of the presence and later Shekina: קָדְשׁוֺ ר׳ Isaiah 63:10, 11 = י׳ ר׳ Isaiah 63:14 (= פָּנָיו מַלְאַךְ Isaiah 63:9), compare Psalm 106:33; so also קָדְשְׁךָ ר׳ Psalm 51:13 (in national prayer), compare Nehemiah 9:20; Psalm 143:10; prophets of restoration conceive of the divine spirit as standing in their midst and about to fulfil all divine promises: רוּחִי עֹמֶדֶת בְּתוֺכֲכֶם Haggai 2:5; Zechariah 4:6; this conception culminates in רוּחַ = divine Presence, and as such omnipresent, Psalm 139:7 (|| פָּנֶיךָ; compare Psalm 139:8).
