Why in Korbanot and by Arvit do we say the passuk of Hashem hoshia…, Hashem tzvaot ashrei…, and Hashem tzvaot emanu… three times?

The commentary to the Artscroll siddur states that Arizal recommended these verses be recited three times each after reciting ketoret. So I guess there is some kabbalistic reason behind it.

(I realize this doesn’t really explain the three-fold recitation at Arvit.)

    Or why not after the ketores said after ein kelokeinu – Dude Oct 5 at 18:47
  • @Dude Those who recite ein kelokeinu during the week (nusach sefard and nusach ashkenaz in Israel) as opposed to shabbat and festivals, do recite these verses then – Joel K Oct 8 at 13:56
