But I thought humans were created in the image of Hashem.
Again, remember. You are dealing with a different language and a more than 3,000 year old culture. The concept of what is written in the Hebrew is that our intellect is what it means to be created in the image of Hashem. We don't have Hashem's intellect. We have a type of intellect that is an image of what Hashem has.
Also, how does Jewish commentary explain this since the Hebrew text is full of verses that portray Hashem as having emotions? From compassionate, loving emotions to uncontrolled anger and rage.
The explaination is that the Torah is written in the language of men. Hashem does not change but the Torah has to be written in a way that all Jews, throughout history, can relate to it. Otherwise one would have some metaphysical text that only a select few would understand on any level.
There's no metaphorical meaning for gluing the pieces together and placing the Jenga set in a place where it won't fall apart is there?
It is a for a baby that either doesn't understand or hasn't learned yet the rules and the goal of the game.
