The front of the album contains Hebrew characters, in transliterated form, "tohu va vohu" (תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ). This phrase is used in both Gen 1:2 and Jer 4:23, and carries no agreed-upon meaning among theological circles. It could mean "wasteland" or "nothingness."[1] The King James Bible translates it in Gen 1:2 as "without form, and void." The dots and dashes above the letters are called trope. They dictate the tune and intonation and are found in the Torah as well as the rest of the Hebrew Bible. On the inside cover, this text is put into greater context, with Jer 4:23–27 provided in both Hebrew and English
