 26:15
26:15 'Look down from Your holy habitation in heaven, and bless Your people Israel, and the land that You have given us, the land flowing with milk and honey that You swore to our fathers.'
Hashkifah mime'on kodshecha min-hashamayim uvarech et-amcha et-Yisra'el ve'et ha'adamah asher natatah lanu ka'asher nishbata la'avoteynu erets zavat chalav udevash.



Commentary:

heaven
  That is, a realm beyond. The Hebrew word for 'heaven' is shamayim, from the word sham meaning 'there.' Thus. shamayim denotes that which is not here. Or, it can come from the root shamam meaning 'unimaginable' (see HaKethav VeHaKabbalah on Genesis 1:1, Deuteronomy 1:28).
