Ezra ben Solomon, Kitve Ramban, 2:487

Jewish Mysticism
Israel gazed (mistakkelin) upon the Presence like one who imagines (medammeh) his friend and says, “This is the one.” In that manner Israel gazed upon the Presence, and imaged (mar’im) her, saying, “This is my God, and I will glorify Him” (Exod. 15-2).

Translated by Elliot Wolfson in Through a Speculum that Shines- Vision and Imagination in Medieval Jewish Mysticism, Princeton- Princeton University Press, 1994.
