Ten are designated by the term Life or Living:--God, the law, Israel,
the righteous, the garden of Eden, the tree of life, the land of Israel,
Jerusalem, benevolence, the sages; and water also is described as life,
as it is said (Zech. xiv. 8), "And it shall be in that day that living
water shall go out from Jerusalem."
