the Bible, the Hebrew word nes refers to a sign or standard, as
will hold up a signal (nes) to the nations and assemble the banished
of Israel, and gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of
the earth." (Isaiah
Talmudic (and modern) literature, nes is the almost universal word
for a miracle: "When
one sees a place where miracles were wrought for Israel, one should say,
"Blessed be He who wrought miracles for our ancestors in this place."
