word offerings

All of us bear within us the Holy letters of HaShem's speech that give us life. Everything in existence does. When we sin, these letters are cut off from Godliness and become a channel for the klippoth, the purely self-interested element of creation, to gain sustenance.

This is why teshuvah must be done through words, through vidui, the pronouncement of your sins before HaShem. Each utterance of the vidui returns those Holy letters to their source, reconnecting them and us with the source of all life.
(paraphrased from the Pri Haaretz on parashath beha'alotcha)
