CHAPTER 7

Deuteronomy 7:12-26

Deu 7:12 And shall be, because of your hearing of ta these judgments, and you shall observe, and you shall do them, and hwhy, your Elohim, shall keep to you ta-the Covenant and ta-the mercy for you which was sworn to your fathers: 13 and will love you, and will bless you, and will multiply you: and will bless the fruit of your womb, and the fruit of your ground, your grain, and your new wine, and your fresh oil, the increase of your oxen, and the richness of your sheep, upon the ground which was sworn to your fathers to give to you. 14 You shall be blessed of all of the peoples: a barren male and a barren female shall not be among you and among your cattle. 15 And hwhy will turn aside all sickness and all the evil diseases of Egypt from you which you have known, shall not put them on you; and shall put them on all of your haters. 16 And you shall consume ta-all the peoples whom hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you; You shall not pity your eye upon them: and you shall not serve ta-their elohim; for he shall be a snare to you. 17 For you shall say in your heart, These nations are many from me; how shall I be able to dispossess them? 18 You shall not fear from them: remembering, you shall remember ta-what hwhy, your Elohim, did to Pharaoh, and to all of Egypt; 19 of the great temptations which your eyes saw, and the signs, and the wonders, and the strong hand, and the outstretched arm which hwhy, your Elohim, brought you out: so hwhy, your Elohim, shall do to all the peoples whom you are fearing from their faces. 20 And also hwhy, your Elohim, shall send ta-the hornets against them, until they that remain and that hide themselves from your face shall perish. 21 You shall not be terrified of their faces: for hwhy, your Elohim, a Great and Fearful El, is in your midst. 22 And hwhy, your Elohim, shall drive out ta-these nations a little bit, a little bit, from your faces: you shall not finish them hastily, lest the beasts of the field shall multiply upon you. 23 And hwhy, your Elohim, shall give them up to your face, and shall destroy them with a great destruction until they are destroyed, 24 and He shall give their kings in your hand, and you shall destroy ta-their name from under the heavens: a man shall not stand against your faces, until you have destroyed them. 25 You shall burn the vessel-carved images of their elohim in the fire: you shall not desire the silver and the gold upon them, and you shall not take for yourself, lest you be snared against him: for he is an abomination to hwhy, your Elohim. 26 And you shall not bring an abomination to your house, and you will be cursed like him: abhoring, you shall abhor him, and detesting, you shall detest him; for he is cursed.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


To begin, I noticed that there are many times throughout the book of Deuteronomy so far that Moses says, in the King James Version, "
hwhy, thy Elohim" or "hwhy, your Elohim", meaning you in the plural form. I searched on the amount of times in each book in the Tanakh, and this is what I found:

hwhy, YOUR ELOHIM (AS "THE LORD THY GOD"):

Genesis: 1 time
Exodus: 9 times
Deuteronomy: 233 
times
Joshua: 4 
times
Judges: 1 time
1 Samuel: 6 times
2 Samuel: 5 times
1 Kings: 7 times
2 Kings: 2 times
1 Chronicles: 3 times
2 Chronicles: 3 times
Psalms: 1 time
Isaiah: 9 times
Jeremiah: 7 times
Hosea: 3 times
Amos: 1 time
Micah: 1 time
Zephaniah: 1 time


hwhy, YOUR ELOHIM (AS "THE LORD YOUR GOD"):

Exodus: 7 
times
Leviticus: 24 times
Numbers: 4 times
Deuteronomy: 47 times
Joshua: 28 
times
Judges: 1 time
1 Samuel: 2 times
2 Kings: 2 times
1 Chronicles: 4 times
2 Chronicles: 5 times
Nehemiah: 2 times
Psalms: 1 time
Jeremiah: 6 times
Ezekiel: 4 times
Joel: 7 times
Zechariah: 1 time


TOTAL OF THE TWO PHRASES COMBINED:


Genesis: 1 time
Exodus: 16 times

Leviticus: 24 
times

Numbers: 4 times
Deuteronomy: 280 times
Joshua: 32
times
Judges: 2 times
1 Samuel: 8 times
2 Samuel: 5 times
1 Kings: 7 times
2 Kings: 4 times
1 Chronicles: 7 times
2 Chronicles: 8 times
Nehemiah: 2 times
Psalms: 2 times
Isaiah: 9 times
Jeremiah: 13 times
Ezekiel: 4 times
Hosea: 3 times
Joel: 7 
times

Amos: 1 time
Micah: 1 time
Zephaniah: 1
time
Zechariah: 1 
time


None of the other books in the Tanakh came close to the amount of times in the book of Deuteronomy with the two phrases combined. The next closest is in Joshua which has only thirty two. Moses kept reminding the Israelites throughout this book that 
hwhy is their Elohim and kept repeating it over and over in their heads, because Moses knew his time of life was ending. He was repeating hwhy's Name to them to make the Israelites revere His Name.



Verse twelve

12 And shall be, because of your hearing of ta these judgments, and you shall observe, and you shall do them, and hwhy, your Elohim, shall keep to you ta-the Covenant and ta-the mercy for you which was sworn to your fathers:

Looking at the word BECAUSE

The Hebrew word for because is "ey-kehv"- Ayin, Kuph, Bet (
bqe). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6118, and its definition

From H6117 in the sense of H6119; a heel, that is, (figuratively) the last of anything (used adverbially for ever); also result, that is, compensation; and so (adverbially with preposition or relatively) on account of: -    X because, by, end, for, if, reward.


from 6117 "ah-kahv" (
 bqe), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to swell out or up; used only as denominative from H6119, to seize by the heel; figuratively to circumvent (as if tripping up the heels); also to restrain (as if holding by the heel): - take by the heel, stay, supplant, X utterly.


This is the same word for heel, which was part of Jacob's Hebrew name "Ya-ah-kohv", meaning "hand on the heel" (
bqey), because the Yod in his name is a Paleo-Hebrew picture of a "hand". When one puts a foot to the ground, the first part of the foot that touches the ground is the heel. The foot is a connective traction factor to the ground, so is the word for this Torah portion "because" which is a conjunction. In general, the word "because", like the "heel", is the first part of a grammatic connective factor, symbolizing one traction toward the direction of one's walk based on its previous location. Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that "ey-kehv" relating to the heel is an act to walking forward in hwhy and to put one's heel down in obeying hwhy. We are to also walk in Yeshua via the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit).



Verse thirteen

13 and will love you, and will bless you, and will multiply you: and will bless the fruit of your womb, and the fruit of your ground, your grain, and your new wine, and your fresh oil, the increase of your oxen, and the richness of your sheep, upon the ground which was sworn to your fathers to give to you.

Looking at the word WOMB

The Hebrew word for womb is "beh-tehn"- Bet, Tet, Nun Sophit (
Njb). It is from Strong's Concordance number 990, and its definition

From an unused root probably meaning to be hollow; the belly, especially the womb; also the bosom or body of anything: - belly, body, + as they be born, + within, womb.

Some translators interpreted this Hebrew word as body, and it could also be interpreted as belly, meaning being filled. But the context paralelling with the rest of the verse is best translated as "womb", meaning that the fruit of a woman's womb's purpose is to bear children, mainly sons, which is the main culture's purpose throughout Bliblical history, then the grain and the animals. This Hebrew word is where we get our modern English word "button", in the contextual connection, our "belly button", where the womb and belly are located.



Verse sixteen

16 And you shall consume ta-all the peoples whom hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you; You shall not pity your eye upon them: and you shall not serve ta-their elohim; for he shall be a snare to you.

The Hebrew word for he is "hoo"- Heh, Vav, Aleph (
awh
). It is commonly translated in the English version bibles as "it", but Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that there are no "its" but male or female pronouns, like "he", or "her", or "she" (The feminine form of this word is "hee"- Heh, Yod, Aleph (ayh)). This word is translated as "he", and who is the he in this verse? He is "HaSatan". What this week's Torah portion passage is saying is that HaSatan will be a snare to them. I accept Mark Biltz's premise, becuase there are so many revealing connective things that the English translations fail to show through their interpretation of this word. Thank you Mark.



Verse eighteen

18 You shall not fear from them: remembering, you shall remember ta-what hwhy, your Elohim, did to Pharaoh, and to all of Egypt;

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted that Egypt, in Hebrew "Meets-rah-yeem", means "trials and tribulations". We who accepted Yeshua came out from the spiritual Egyptian world from their trials and tribualtions.



Verse twenty

20 And also hwhy, your Elohim, shall send ta-the hornets against them, until they that remain and that hide themselves from your face shall perish.

Indirectly related, this week's Torah portion passage could connect to a prophecy in the end times regarding those who do not have 
hwhy
's Name written on their foreheads, and it's located in the book of Revelation:

THOSE WHO HIDE THEMSELVES

Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 13 And the stars of the heavens fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 14 And the heavens departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the Throne, and from the Wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?


THOSE THAT ARE LIKE HORNETS

Revelation 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from the heavens unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the Seal of hwhy in their foreheads. 5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6 And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. 7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.



Verse twenty two

22 And hwhy, your Elohim, shall drive out ta-these nations a little bit, a little bit, from your faces: you shall not finish them hastily, lest the beasts of the field shall multiply upon you.

The reason, because if the enemies were killed in haste, the wild animals that eat flesh would see all those corpses, and would think that there is plenty of food, and would produce more wild animal offspring to offset the plenty of dead carcasses the people of Israel would slaughter. This is 
hwhy's act of animal population control.



Verses twenty five and twenty six

25 You shall burn the vessel-carved images of their elohim in the fire: you shall not desire the silver and the gold upon them, and you shall not take for yourself, lest you be snared against him: for he is an abomination to hwhy, your Elohim. 26 And you shall not bring an abomination to your house, and you will be cursed like him: abhoring, you shall abhor him, and detesting, you shall detest him; for he is cursed.

This is another example of "he" and "him" being "HaSatan" as mentioned in verse sixteen, in this case, the application of idols. Tying these three verses together, we get the negative and evil aspects relating to the First and Second Words (Commandments). Verse sixteen is the basis of the First Word (Commandment), becuase if one pities the person, it is an indirect act of believing the person through the sparing of that person's life.

The prophet Samuel rebuked King Saul for pitying King Agag and not killing him, hence breaking the First Word (Commandment) to believe in 
hwhy
's Word through the prophet Samuel to kill King Agag. By sparing King Agag, King Saul shifted his belief in hwhy to believing in his own reasoning and believing in the people and allowing King Agag to be spared, ultimately breaking his relationship with hwhy and Samuel, which resulted in losing his kingship in the end. This is what happened some time after Samuel was told he would lose the kingship and would be given to another, which is noted in the book of the prophet Samuel

1 Samuel 16:13 Then Samuel took ta-the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of hwhy came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah. 14 But the Spirit of hwhy departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from ta hwhy troubled him.

A
n evil spirit came onto King Saul, becuase of his unbelief.
 

Continuing, the issue of the Second Word (Commandment) was the issue of the Canaanite idols that were made of gold and silver. At that time, idols were taken verious seriously and were a big deal in the nations. Though they were only metal, the people worshipped them, but because they did, it caused evil spirits to exist in those idols. Those idols will lead them to believe in HaSatan.

Indirectly related in this Torah passage, one person affected the people of Israel causing from getting favor from 
hwhy
by taking the gold and silver when he was told not to take them. It is noted in the book of Joshua

Joshua 7:1 And the Sons of Israel committed a trespass in the accursed thing: for Achan, son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took of the accursed thing: and the Anger of hwhy was kindled against the Sons of Israel. 2 And Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Bethaven, on the east side of Bethel, and spake unto them, saying, Go up and view ta-the land. And the men went up and viewed ta-Ai. 3 And they returned to Joshua, and said unto him, Let not all the People go up; but let about two or three thousand men go up and smite ta-Ai; and make not ta-all the people to labour thither; for they are but few. 4 So there went up thither of the People about three thousand men: and they fled before the men of Ai. 5 And the men of Ai smote of them about thirty and six men: for they chased them from before the gate even unto Shebarim, and smote them in the going down: wherefore the hearts of the People melted, and became as water. 6 And Joshua rent his clothes, and fell to the earth upon his face before the Ark of hwhy until the eventide, he and the Elders of Israel, and put dust upon their heads. 7 And Joshua said, Alas, O Adonai hwhy, wherefore hast Thou at all brought ta-this People over ta-Jordan, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us? Would to Him we had been content, and dwelt on the other side Jordan! 8 O Adonai, what shall I say, when Israel turneth their backs before their enemies! 9 For the Canaanites and all the inhabitants of the land shall hear of it, and shall environ us round, and cut off ta-our name from the earth: and what wilt thou do unto Thy Great Name? 10 And hwhy said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face? 11 Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed ta-My Covenant which I commanded them: for they have even taken of the accursed thing, and have also stolen, and dissembled also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. 12 Therefore the Sons of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: neither will I be with you any more, except ye destroy the accursed from among you. 13 Up, sanctify ta-the People, and say, Sanctify yourselves against to morrow: for thus saith hwhy, Elohim of Israel, There is an accursed thing in the midst of thee, O Israel: thou canst not stand before thine enemies, until ye take away the accursed thing from among you. 14 In the morning therefore ye shall be brought according to your tribes: and it shall be, that the tribe which hwhy taketh shall come according to the families thereof; and the family which hwhy shall take shall come by households; and the household which hwhy shall take shall come man by man. 15 And it shall be, that he that is taken with the accursed thing shall be burnt with fire, he and ta-all that he hath: because he hath transgressed ta-the Covenant of hwhy, and because he hath wrought folly in Israel. 16 And Joshua rose up early in the morning, and brought ta-Israel by their tribes; and the tribe of Judah was taken: 17 And he brought ta-the family of Judah; and he took ta-the family of the Zarhites: and he brought ta-the family of the Zarhites man by man; and Zabdi was taken: 18 And he brought ta-his household man by man; and Achan, son of Carmi, son of Zabdi, son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken. 19 And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give now Glory to hwhy, Elohim of Israel, and make confession unto Him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. 20 And Achan answered ta-Joshua, and said, Indeed I have sinned against hwhy, Elohim of Israel, and as thus, and as thus, have I done: 21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it. 22 And Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it. 23 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the Sons of Israel, and laid them out towards the Face of hwhy. 24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took ta-Achan, son of Zerah, and ta-the silver, and ta-the garment, and ta-the wedge of gold, and ta-his sons, and ta-his daughters, and ta-his oxen, and ta-his asses, and ta-his sheep, and ta-his tent, and ta-all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. 25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? hwhy shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. 26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. And hwhy turned from the fierceness of His Anger. Upon thus the name of that place, he was called the Valley of Achor, unto this day.

What Achor did caused 
hwhy
to turn His blessing and protection away from Israel, and after Achor and all of his household was killed, hwhy's anger turned away. This is just one example. Question: "Why wasn't Aachor's wife not mentioned in the list to be killed"? I don't have an answer to this at this time. In today's society, there are satanic elements and items which look innocent that are involved by HaSatan and his demons. One of the most popular examples is the Ouiji board. Another subtile example is the popular practice of Yoga, which is a perverse pagan religious activity, but it is an ancient Middle East ritual, which one is to connect without hwhy/Yeshua involved, which is Anti-Messiah.

CHAPTER 8

Deuteronomy 8:1-20

Deu 8:1 All of the Commandments which I am commanding you today, you shall observe to do, by that, you will live, and you will multiply, and you will go and you will possess
ta-the land which hwhy swore to your fathers. 2 And you shall remember ta-all of the way which hwhy, your Elohim, made you walk these forty years in the wilderness, by that, to humble you, to know you ta-what was in your heart, that you are keeping His Commandments, or not. 3 and humbled you, and hungered you, and made you eat ta-the manna, which you had not known, and your fathers had not known; by that, you shall know that upon the bread by his apartness, shall the Adam not live, for upon all coming out of the Mouth of hwhy shall the Adam live. 4 Your clothing did not decay from upon you, and your foot did not blister these forty years, 5 and you have known with your heart that as which a man corrects ta-his son, so shall hwhy, your Elohim, correct you. 6 And you shall keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy, your Elohim, to walk in His Ways, and to fear Him. 7 For hwhy, your Elohim, was bringing you to a good land, a land of brooks of water, of eye-fountains and depths that spring out among of valleys and among the mountains; 8 a land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil, and honey; 9 a land which you shall not eat bread in her of in scarceness. You shall not be of want of any thing in her; a land whose stones are of iron, and from the mountains you shall dig copper. 10 And you shall eat, and you shall be satisfied, and you shall bless ta-hwhy, your Elohim, upon the good land which shall be given to you.

11 Beware to yourself, lest you forget 
ta-hwhy, your Elohim, toward not keeping His Commandments, and His judgments, and His Statutes, which I am commanding you today: 12 lest you eat and you are satisfied, and you build goodly houses, and you dwell; 13 and your herds and your flocks multiply, and silver and gold was multiplied to you, and all that is to you has multiplied; 14 and your heart rises, and you forget ta-hwhy, your Elohim, that brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery; 15 making you walk in the great and fearful wilderness, of fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where was no water; that brought water for you from the rock of flint; 16 that fed you manna in the wilderness, which your fathers had not known, by that, to humble you, and by that, to tempt you, to make you good in the latter end; 17 and you say in your heart, My power and the might of my hand have made for me ta-this wealth. 18 And you shall remember ta-hwhy, your Elohim: for He is the One giving to you power to make wealth, by that, to establish ta-His Covenant which was sworn to your fathers as this day. 19 And shall be, forgetting, you shall forget ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and you walk after other elohim, and you serve them, and you bow down to them, I testify against you today, for perishing, you will perish. 20 As the nations which hwhy perished from your face, so you shall perish; because you did not obey in the Voice of hwhy, your Elohim.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verse two


2 And you shall remember ta-all of the way which hwhy, your Elohim, made you walk these forty years in the wilderness, by that, to humble you, to know you ta-what was in your heart, that you are keeping His Commandments, or not.

EPHRAIM JUDAH


42 Journeys in the Wilderness

42 Journeys


Indirectly related, King David based this week's Torah portion passage in the book of Psalms

Psalms 139:23 Search me, El, and know my heart: and test me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any griveous way in me, and lead me in the way of ages.

We as believers in the Messiah need to ask 
hwhy
at times to search us and know our hearts, as hwhy did to the Israelites in the wilderness.



Verse three

3 and humbled you, and hungered you, and made you eat ta-the manna, which you had not known, and your fathers had not known; by that, you shall know that upon the bread by his apartness, shall the Adam not live, for upon all coming out of the Mouth of hwhy shall the Adam live.

Yeshua used this very verse in His trial in the wilderness by the temptation of HaSatan, which is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 4:1 Then was Yeshua led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to Him, he said, If Thou be the Son of Elohim, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But He answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of hwhy.

Yeshua went through the wilderness for forty days, a day for a year, for the forty years that the Israelites wondered in the wilderness and were given manna. The Hebrew word for manna is "mahn"- Mem, Nun Sophit (Nm), Yeshua became "the Living Man" (the Living Manna), the fulfillment of "the Man" or "the Symbolic Word". As Yeshua said regarding the manna in the Gospel of John

John 6:30 They said therefore unto Him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe Thee? what dost Thou work? 31 Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from the heavens to eat. 32 Then Yeshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from the heavens; but My Father giveth you the True Bread from the heavens. 33 For the bread of hwhy is He which cometh down from the heavens, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto Him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Yeshua said unto them, I am the Bread of Life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen Me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from the heavens, not to do Mine own will, but the will of Him that sent Me. 39 And this is the Father's Will which hath sent Me, that of all which He hath given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise him up again at the last day. 40 And this is the Will of Him that sent Me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on Him, may have Everlasting Life: and I will raise Him up at the last day. 41 The Jews then murmured at Him, because he said, I am the Bread which came down from the heavens. 42 And they said, Is not this Yeshua, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How is it then that He saith, I came down from the heavens? 43 Yeshua therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44 No man can come to Me, except the Father which hath sent Me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of hwhy. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto Me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save He which is of hwhy, He hath seen the Father. 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on Me hath Everlasting Life. 48 I am that Bread of Life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the Bread which cometh down from the heavens, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the Living Bread which came down from the heavens: if any man eat of this Bread, he shall live for ever: and the Bread that I will give is My Flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. 52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this Man give us His Flesh to eat? 53 Then Yeshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the Flesh of the Son of Man, and drink His Blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth My Flesh, and drinketh My Blood, hath Eternal Life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For My Flesh is Food indeed, and My Blood is Drink indeed. 56 He that eateth My Flesh, and drinketh My Blood, dwelleth in Me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent Me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth Me, even he shall live by Me. 58 This is that Bread which came down from the heavens: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this Bread shall live for ever. 59 These things said He in the synagogue, as He taught in Capernaum.

As the Israelites ate the manna, the symbol of Yeshua, during their journey in the wilderness which was their sufficency and their necessity, so is Yeshua, our Living Manna, our sufficiency and our necessity in our lives as believers in the Messiah.



Verse four

4 Your clothing did not decay from upon you, and your foot did not blister these forty years,

This is a
miracle that the Israelites experienced during their forty years journey in the wilderness.

One can tie this week's Torah portion passage to Yeshua's statement, which is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than food, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Wherefore, if hwhy so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the Kingdom of hwhy, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

In relation, Yeshua could have most likely based this Gospel passage from this week's Torah portion passage.



Verses five and six

5 and you have known with your heart that as which a man corrects ta-his son, so shall hwhy, your Elohim, correct you. 6 And you shall keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy, your Elohim, to walk in His Ways, and to fear Him.

The word "corrects" in verse five is the same word from the Hebrew text that means "chastise".

Indirectly related, the apostle Paul noted about us as believers being chastised, or corrected, which is noted in the book of Hebrews

Hebrews 12:5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the Chastening of
hwhy, nor faint when thou art rebuked of Him: 6 For whom hwhy loveth He chasteneth and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, hwhy dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but He for our profit, that we might be partakers of His Holiness. 11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.

I was going through this experience at times myself, and when I found these verses and read them, they witnessed to my heart. 

David was chastened when he went into Bathsheba, but the most notable person that went through chastisement is Job. You can read the book of Job on your own time. Basically, he stayed focused on 
hwhy in spite of his chastisement until hwhy showed him that he had a pride issue, and repented from it.



Verse sixteen

16 that fed you manna in the wilderness, which your fathers had not known, by that, to humble you, and by that, to tempt you, to make you good in the latter end;

In the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), we as believers in Yeshua go through spiritual trials until we just have "the Word" to be our sufficiency, as the apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

1 Corinthians 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Yeshua, the Messiah. 12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 16 Know ye not that ye are the Temple of hwhy, and that the Spirit of hwhy dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the Temple of hwhy, him shall hwhy destroy; for the Temple of hwhy is Holy, which Temple ye are.


The apostle Peter also spoke directly about being tried and tested in the fire as he noted in his epistle

1 Peter 1:3 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Lord Yeshua, the Messiah, which according to His Abundant Mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Yeshua, the Messiah, from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in the heavens for you, 5 Who are kept by the Power of hwhy through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Yeshua, the Messiah: 8 Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see Him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: 9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.



Verse seventeen

17 and you say in your heart, My power and the might of my hand have made for me ta-this wealth.

King Nebuchadnezer had a dream which the prophet Daniel interpreted that in one year, King Nebuchadnezer was to wonder like an animal in the fields for seven years. When the one year had just about ended,
this is what King Nebuchadnezer said to himself before he was to wander in the fields for seven years like an animal. It is noted in the book of the prophet Daniel

Daniel 4:24 This is the interpretation, O king, and this is the decree of the Most High, which is come upon my lord the king: 25 That they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they shall wet thee with the dew of the heavens, and seven times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will. 26 And whereas they commanded to leave the stump of the tree roots; thy kingdom shall be sure unto thee, after that thou shalt have known that the heavens do rule. 27 Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto thee, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquillity. 28 All this came upon the King Nebuchadnezzar. 29 At the end of twelve months he walked in the palace of the Kingdom of Babylon. 30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? 31 While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from the heavens, saying, O King Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will. 33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.



Verses nineteen and twenty

19 And shall be, forgetting, you shall forget ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and you walk after other elohim, and you serve them, and you bow down to them, I testify against you today, for perishing, you will perish. 20 As the nations which hwhy perished from your face, so you shall perish; because you did not obey in the Voice of hwhy, your Elohim.

In other words, Moses was telling the Israelites that if they forget
hwhy and serve other elohim (the First and Second Words (Commandments)) that they will be destroyed by the nations around them, because they did not listen to the Voice of hwhy, their Elohim. This was a very harsh warning to them, but that was the key for them, to hear the "Voice" of hwhy. The Israelites were afraid to hear the Voice of hwhy at Mount Sinai in the Torah portion of Ythro, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 20:18 And all the People saw ta-the sounds, and ta-the flashings, and ta the sound of the shofar, and ta-the mountain smoking: and the people saw, and they removed, and they stood from a distance. 19 And they said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will listen: And let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die. 20 And Moses said to the People, Do you not fear: for by in order that the Elohim has come to test you, and in order that His fear (reverence), she may be upon your faces, by that, you may not sin. 21 And the People stood from a distance, and Moses drew near to the thick darkness where there is the Elohim.

How were they going to hear the voice of Elohim if they told Moses to hear Him for them? Even Moses said this to them in the Torah portion of Vay-Yeyleykh, in the book of Deuteronomy:

Deuteronomy 31:27 
For I, I know ta-your rebellion, and ta-the stiffness of your neck: behold, in yet I have life with you today, you have been rebellious with hwhy; and moreover towards after my death!


Moses knew that most of them were not going to obey 
hwhy. How sad that was.



In verses eleven through eighteen of this week's Torah portion chapter, Moses warns the Israelites not to lift up their hearts and not take credit for what hwhy did for them in the wilderness, and providing them the ability to increase their inheritance, and eat and be satisfied, by not saying in their hearts that they did it themselves. This would be an act of pride. This would be an act against the Third Word (Commandment) by taking away the credit that hwhy rightly deserved, which is noted in the Torah portion of Yithro, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 20:7 You shall not exalt ta-the Name of hwhy, your Elohim, for vanity (uselessness, destructiveness); for hwhy will not leave guiltless ta whoever exalts ta-His Name for vanity (uselessness, destructiveness).

Looking at the word VANITY

The Hebrew word for vanity is "shahv"- Shin, Vav or Shin, Vav, Aleph (
ws or aws). It is from Strong's Concordance number 7723, and its definition

From the same as H7722 in the sense of desolating; evil (as destructive), literally (ruin) or morally (especially guile); figuratively idolatry (as false, subjectively), uselessness (as deceptive, objectively; also adverbially in vain): - false (-ly), lie, lying, vain, vanity.

from 7722 "shoh" or "shoh-ah"
(aws or haws or has), and its definition

From an unused root meaning to rush over; a tempest; by implication devastation: - desolate (-ion), destroy, destruction, storm, wasteness.


 It is commonly is interpreted as "vain", but one can take 
hwhy's name to meaninglessness, or in extreme, to nullify. We can say, based on this information, that Moses is saying to the Israelites not to break the Third Word (Commandment) to take hwhy's name to vanity through nullification.







CHAPTER 9

Deuteronomy 9:1-29

Deu 9:1 Hear, Israel: You are going over
ta-the Jordan today to go to possess nations greater and mightier than you, cities great and fortified to the heavens, 2 A great and tall people, the sons of the Anakim, whom you, you know, and you, you have heard. Who shall stand to the face of the sons of Anak? 3 And you will know today, for hwhy, your Elohim, He is the One going over by your face; of a consuming fire He shall destroy them, and He shall subdue them to your face: and you shall dispossess them, and destroy them hastily, as which hwhy spoke to you. 4 You shall not say in your heart, hwhy, your Elohim, in driving them away from your face, to say, In my righteousness had hwhy brought me to possess ta this land: and hwhy drove out these nations from their wickedness from your face. 5 Not on your righteousness, or on the uprightness of your heart, are you going to possess ta-their land: but from the wickedness of these nations hwhy, your Elohim, are dispossessing from your face, and by that, establishing ta-the Word which hwhy swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 6 And you shall know, by not on your righteousness hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you ta-this good land to possess her; for you are a stiffnecked People.

7 Remember, and do you not forget,
ta how you made ta-hwhy, your Elohim angry in the wilderness: for from the day that you went out from the land of Egypt, until you came unto this place, you have been rebellious against hwhy. 8 And in Horeb, you made ta-hwhy wroth, and you made hwhy angry against you, to destroy you. 9 In my ascending to the mountain to receive the tablets of the stones, the Tablets of the Covenant which hwhy cut with you, and I dwelt in the mountain forty days and forty nights, I did not eat bread, and I did not drink water: 10 and hwhy gave to me ta-the two tablets of the stones written on the Finger of Elohim; and upon them according to all the Words, which hwhy spoke with you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the Assembly. 11 And was from the end of forty days and forty nights, hwhy gave me ta-the two tablets of the stones, the Tablets of the Covenant.

12 And 
hwhy said to me, Arise, go down hastily from here; for your People are corrupt, whom you have brought out from Egypt; they turned hastily from the way which I have commanded them; they have made themselves a casted image. 13 And hwhy spoke to me, to say, I have seen ta-this People, and, behold, he is a stiff necked People: 14 Cease from Me, and I will destroy them, and I will blot out ta-their name from under the heavens: and I will make of you of a nation mightier and greater than them. 15 And I faced and I went down from the mountain, and the mountain was burning in the Fire: and the two Tablets of the Covenant were upon my two hands. 16 And I looked, and behold, you had sinned toward hwhy, your Elohim, and you had made for yourselves a casted calf: you have turned hastily from the way which hwhy had commanded you. 17 And I took hold on the two tablets, and I cast them from upon my two hands, and I broke them toward your eyes.

18 And I fell down to the Face of
hwhy forty days and forty nights, as the first: I did not eat bread, and I did not drink water, upon all your sins which you had sinned, for doing the evil in the Eyes of hwhy, to make Him angry, 19 for I was afraid of the face of the anger and the fury, which hwhy was wroth upon you to destroy you, and hwhy listened to me in her time also, 20 and hwhy was much angry against Aaron to destroy him: and I prayed also on unto Aaron in her time, 21 and ta-your sins, which you made ta-the calf, I took and I burned him in the fire, and I crushed him, grounded well, until that was fine to dust: and I cast ta-his dust to the brook that came down from the mountain.

22 And in Taberah, and in Massah, and in Kibroth-Hattaavah, you were of displeasure toward
ta-hwhy. 23 And in hwhy sending you from Kadesh-Barnea, to say, Ascend and possess ta-the land which I have given to you; and you rebelled ta-the Mouth of hwhy, your Elohim, and you did not believe toward Him, and you did not hearken in His Voice. 24 You have been rebellious against hwhy from the day I knew you, 25 and I fell down toward the Face of hwhy which I fell down ta the forty days and ta-the forty nights; for hwhy had said to destroy you. 26 And I prayed to hwhy, and said, Adonai hwhy, Do you not destroy Your People and Your Inheritance, whom You have redeemed in Your Greatness, whom You have brought out from Egypt on a Strong Hand. 27 Remember to Your servants, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; You do not face toward the stubbornness of this People, and not his wickedness, and not his sin: 28 lest they say, the land which You brought us out from them, hwhy was not able to bring them to the land which was worded to them, and He that brought them out, hating them, to kill them in the wilderness, 29 and they are Your People and Your inheritance, whom You brought out on Your great Power and on Your Outstretched Arm.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verse three

3 And you will know today, for hwhy, your Elohim, He is the One going over by your face; of a consuming fire He shall destroy them, and He shall subdue them to your face: and you shall dispossess them, and destroy them hastily, as which hwhy spoke to you.

Indirectly related, this is an aspect of 
hwhy using His Consuming Fire to destroy the peoples, as the apostle Paul noted this in the book of the Hebrews

Hebrews 12:26 Whose voice then shook the earth: but now He hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also the heavens. 27 And this Word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain. 28 Wherefore we receiving a Kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve hwhy acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29 For our Elohim is a Consuming Fire.



V
erses four through six

4 You shall not say in your heart, hwhy, your Elohim, in driving them away from your face, to say, In my righteousness had hwhy brought me to possess ta this land: and hwhy drove out these nations from their wickedness from your face. 5 Not on your righteousness, or on the uprightness of your heart, are you going to possess ta-their land: but from the wickedness of these nations hwhy, your Elohim, are dispossessing from your face, and by that, establishing ta-the Word which hwhy swore to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. 6 And you shall know, by not on your righteousness hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you ta-this good land to possess her; for you are a stiffnecked People.

Moses warned Israel that if they became successful in the land and they will say, it is because of "thier" righteousness that they are dwelling in the land, and that the peoples were kicked out. In response, Moses said to them in many words "Uh, uh", but it was 
hwhy's "Word" to Abraham Isaac and Jacob that they are going in the land to posses her. Moses then told them that they are not chosen becuase they were stiff necked People.

This is supported by the apostle Paul as is written in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 3:10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
 

This is based from the book of the Psalms

Psalms 14:3 ...there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

This is the same situation for us today as believers regarding our salvation, as the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Ephesus

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the Gift of
hwhy: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.



Verse nine

9 In my ascending to the mountain to receive the tablets of the stones, the Tablets of the Covenant which hwhy cut with you, and I dwelt in the mountain forty days and forty nights, I did not eat bread, and I did not drink water:

Moses was supernaturally nourished by 
hwhy, otherwise Moses would have came down all skin and bones in a very, very weak state that he would have been dragging those stones down the mountain with hardly any strength he had. If he wasn't, how could he have descended down by himself with the weight of the two tablets of stones, and have the energy to cast, or throw them down to the ground with a force strong enough to break them?



Verses fifteen through seventeen

15 And I faced and I went down from the mountain, and the mountain was burning in the Fire: and the two Tablets of the Covenant were upon my two hands. 16 And I looked, and behold, you had sinned toward hwhy, your Elohim, and you had made for yourselves a casted calf: you have turned hastily from the way which hwhy had commanded you. 17 And I took hold on the two tablets, and I cast them from upon my two hands, and I broke them toward your eyes.

This was from the Torah portion of Ki Thisa, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 32:15 And Moses faced away, and went down from the mountain, and the Two Tablets of the Testimony were in his hand: the Tablets were written from two of their regions; they were written from this side, and from this side. 16 And the Tablets, they were the work of Elohim, and the writing was the writing of Elohim, he was engraved upon the Tablets. 17 And Joshua heard ta-the sound of the People in their shouting, and said to Moses, A sound of war is in the Camp. 18 And said, Not the sound of a shout of valor, and not a sound of a shout of defeat: I am hearing a sound of singing. 19 And was, as which coming near to the Camp, and saw ta-the calf, and dancing around: and the anger of Moses glowed, and he cast ta-the Tablets from his hands, and broke them beneath the mountain. 20 And took ta-the calf which they made, and was burned in the fire, and was ground unto which was powder, and was scattered upon the face of the water, and made ta-the Sons of Israel to drink.

Why did Moses break the first two tablets of stones? I have a theory, which in my opinion is the most sensible one:

Moses was told by 
hwhy to go back down to "your people" because they defiled themselves.

By then, the Torah of The Ten Words (Commandments) were now etched in the stone, and they became final, complete, sealed, confirmed, established, validated and active, and those words now became law from that time, and onward, as long as those tablets of stones were in tact. When Moses reached the Camp and found that the Israelites made a golden calf and worshiped it, he knew that the Ten Words (Commandments) that were written in stone would seal their deaths. He also knew that the Ten Words (Commandments) were written based on the original promise to the Israelites that they would be a Kingdom of Priests and a Holy Nation noted in the Torah portion of Yithro, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 19:3 And Moses ascended to the Elohim, and hwhy called to him from the mountain, to say, Thus you shall say to the House of Jacob, and you shall tell to the Sons of Israel; 4 You, you have seen what I did to Egypt, and I bore you upon wings of eagles, and I brought you to Myself. 5 And now, if listening, you will listen in My Voice, and you will keep ta-My Covenant, and you will be to Me a Special Treasure from all the peoples: for all the earth is to Me: 6 And you, you shall be to Me a Kingdom of Priests, and a Holy Nation. These are the Words which you shall speak to the Sons of Israel.

But they abused it and defiled it by making the golden calf and worshiping it. When Moses realized the situation of their fates, the only thing he could do to save them from hwhy's death sentence against them was to destroy the Two Tablets of the Stones of the Covenant between  hwhy and the People. This would cause the contract to be broken. This was Moses act of mercy for the People in the eyes of hwhy to destroy the Tablets containing the Ten Words (Commandments).

Did hwhy get mad at Moses for breaking the two tablets? No, He did not. In my opinion, hwhy knew that was was the only way to save the Israelites and Aaron from death.



Verse eighteen

18 And I fell down to the Face of hwhy forty days and forty nights, as the first: I did not eat bread, and I did not drink water, upon all your sins which you had sinned, for doing the evil in the Eyes of hwhy, to make Him angry,

Moses continues to remind the Israelites of the account at Mount Sinai when they and Aaron turned against hwhy and made a golden calf while he was on the top of the mountain with hwhy for forty days and forty nights without eating or drinking. To a human, one would die for not eating and drinking that long. hwhy supernaturaly kept Moses' body from natural deterioration as noted in this week's Torah portion's previous chapter. If hwhy did not supernaturally nourished Moses, in his human nature, he would have died.

This account of Moses' supernatural health without eating or drinking for forty days and forty nights was a type and shadow of Yeshua wandering in the wilderness without eating and drinking for forty days and forty nights in the wilderness. It is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 4:1 Then was Yeshua led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, He was afterward an hungred.

Indirectly related, though it doesn't say it in the Bible, in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), in theory, Yeshua was being whipped with, presumably, the cat of nine tails. There is also no account that Yeshua was whipped thirty nine times. This theory is based from the apostle Paul's account in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

2 Corinthians 11:24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.

If the basis is correct, my premise would be that if Yeshua was given forty lashes of the presumed usage of the presumed cat of nine tails instead of thirty nine, the Roman Soldiers would have indirectly acknowledged that Yeshua was a "full mortal human being" by His Flesh being born in sin, and if the Roman soldiers did, they would have disqualified Yeshua from being the Messiah.


Notice that in verses eighteen in this week's Torah portion passage, including verse nine in this week's Torah portion chapter, Moses went up to the top of Mount Sinai two different times, each for forty days and forty nights. That totals to 80 days he stayed in that mountain.



Verse nineteen

19 for I was afraid of the face of the anger and the fury, which hwhy was wroth upon you to destroy you, and hwhy listened to me in her time also,

For the second time in Moses' history, he was afraid. The first time occurred where he fled from the hand of Pharaoh, based on Moses' fear of his death. It is noted in Torah portion of Sh'moth, in the book of Numbers

Exodus 2:11  11 And was in those days, and Moses was grown up, and went out to his brothers, and saw their burdens: and saw a man, an Egyptian, striking a man, a Hebrew, from his brothers. 12 And facing here, and here, and saw that not was a man, and struck ta-the Egyptian, and hid him in the sand. 13 And went out the second day, and behold, two men, Hebrews, were quarreling together: and said to the guilty one, To why do you strike your neighbor? 14 And said, Who appointed you a man, a prince and a judge, over us? Are you saying to kill me as which you killed ta-the Egyptian? And Moses feared, and said, Surely the word is known. 15 And Pharaoh heard ta-this word, and searched to kill ta-Moses.

In this second time, Moses was afraid regarding 
hwhy's anger against the Israelites, because He was going to destroy them, as well as his brother Aaron, at Mount Sinai. Moses pleaded to hwhy to spare them, which He did.



Verse twenty-one

21 and ta-your sins, which you made ta-the calf, I took and I burned him in the fire, and I crushed him, grounded well, until that was fine to dust: and I cast ta-his dust to the brook that came down from the mountain.

It is interesting that Moses said that there was a brook that came down from Mount Sinai. Giving credit to the late Ron Wyatt of Ark Discovery International and The Wyatt Family Website, and his staff at the time, this is an image of Mount Sinai at Jubal al Lawz, in Saudi Arabia, and the next image show the location of the brook area where the water used to flow

This is a 3D satelite image showing the brook flow from the top of Mount Sinai






These satelite images shows the location of the altar of the golden calf in relevence to the brook coming down from Mount Sinai. The first one is a satelite view, the next one marks the flow of the brook and the location of the golden calf altar






One can see that the altar, where the golden calf was once located, was a few steps away to the brook. This would have been easy access for Moses to throw the golden calf, now grounded into powder. This will give the viewer a better perspective of the scence and the distance related to the accounts.


A REALIZATION!!!

Glory be to you Abba Father, 
hwhy, for revealing this. Zooming out, this is the image of the area of the Wilderness of Sinai and its vicinity






Looking into this circular area where Mount Sinai and the items related to Mount Sinai are located




Does this circular area look like something relating to a part of an organ of the human body? How about the top view of a brain? The path makes a separation between the two shaped type lobes, with the left lobe and the right lobe noted in the image below



This could reveal to us that the top of the head of the brain is 
hwhy's "intelligence center" where the Israelites received the Ten Words (Commandments). This could also symbolically portray the top of the head of the Israelites male's "uncovered head", so that hwhy could be their covering, which is based in the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Corinth

1 Corinthins 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Messiah; and the head of the woman is the man; and the Head of Messiah is hwhy. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of hwhy: but the woman is the glory of the man.

Looking at an image of this chart below shows the different functions on both sides of the lobes of the brain



 The left lobe is where our logic is located. This left lobe contains the locations of the border pillars which is an act of keeping one in check, the altar of Moses which is an act of requirement, and the top of Mount Sinai where Moses received the Ten Words (Commandments) from 
hwhy which is an act of discipline. On the other hand, the right lobe is where our creativity is located, and this is the side where the Israelites used their creative skills to "create" the the golden calf. This is another satelite image showing both lobe sides with each of the locations in the Mount Sinai area

Verse twenty four

24 You have been rebellious against hwhy from the day I knew you,

In the Hebrew text, the word for rebels is "mahm-reem" (
Myrmm
). The interesting thing about this Hebrew word is that in the Hebrew Torah text, the first Mem is smaller than the rest of the letters

Mamrim

The first Mem is a preference to the little Mem in the pictoral Paleo-Hebrew is a picture of water. The purpose of this is to say that their water flow has "shrunken", hence the small sized Mem, because they have rebellious in their hearts. This affected their relationship with 
hwhy, causing the flow of their hearts to be restricted and not as free as it should be.

We as believers have a relationship with Yeshua, and He is the Living Water in our lives. This is what Yeshua said during the seventh day (or eighth day) of the Fall High Holy Day of the Feast of Sukkoth/Solemn Assembly, which is noted in the Gospel of John

John 7:37 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yeshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto Me, and drink. 38 He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of Living Water.

The scripture, or scriptures, are taken from the books of Proverbs and the prophet Isaiah

Proverbs 18:4 The words of a man's mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.

Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:



Verses twelve through twenty nine

In parts of verses twelve through twenty nine, there is a debate that one can title "Who's People Is It Anyway?". First, Moses reminded the people what 
hwhy said to him in verse twelve

12 And hwhy said to me, Arise, go down hastily from here; for your People are corrupt, whom you have brought out from Egypt; they turned hastily from the way which I have commanded them; they have made themselves a casted image.

Then Moses replies to 
hwhy regarding the People after his third return to hwhy in verses twenty through twenty nine

26 And I prayed to hwhy, and said, Adonai hwhy, Do you not destroy People and Your Inheritance, whom You have redeemed in Your Greatness, whom You have brought out from Egypt on a Strong Hand. 27 Remember to Your servants, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; You do not face toward the stubbornness of this People, and not his wickedness, and not his sin: 28 lest they say, the land which You brought us out from them, hwhy was not able to bring them to the land which was worded to them, and He that brought them out, hating them, to kill them in the wilderness, 29 and they are People and Your inheritance, whom You brought out on Your great Power and on Your Outstretched Arm.

What hwhy and Moses were doing was having an argument between each other.


In
verses twenty two to the end of the chapter, at Kadesh Barnea, hwhy was going to destroy them and also blot their names from under the heavens, because they believed in the negative report from the ten spies. You would think that this should have waken the Israelites up and think twice before considering turning away from Him. Had they ever considered thanking Moses for pleading to hwhy to spare them from utter destruction? Nope. Well I am going to say it, even if it is 3,500 years late: Thank you Moses for pleading to hwhy for sparing our ancestors from death and eternal blotting from under the heavens, and thank you ABBA Father hwhy for not destroying our ancestors at Mount Sinai, which would have destroy us, their seed. We as believers should say this to our Heavenly Father.







CHAPTER 10

Deuteronomy 10:1-22

Deu 10:1 In her time 
hwhy said to me, Carve out for yourself two tablets of stones like the first, and ascend to Me to the mountain, and you will make for yourself an Ark of wood. 2 And I will write upon the Tablets ta-the Words which they were upon the first tablets which you broke, and you shall put them in the Ark. 3 And I made an Ark of shittim wood, and carved out two tablets of stone like the first, and I ascended to the mountain, and the two tablets were in my hand, 4 and wrote upon the tablets, according to the first writing, ta-the Ten Words, which hwhy spoke to you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the Assembly: and hwhy gave them to me. 5 And I faced, and I came down from the mountain, and I put ta-the tablets in the Ark which I had made; and they are there, as which hwhy commanded me.

6 And the Sons of Israel, they pulled up from Beeroth of the sons of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and was buried there; and Eleazar, his son, was acting Priest of his stead. 7 From there they pulled up to the Gudgodah; and from the Gudgodah to Jotbath, a land of torrents of waters. 8 In her time,
hwhy separated ta-the tribe of Levi, to bear ta-the Ark of the Covenant of hwhy, to stand to the Face of hwhy to minister Him, and to bless in His Name, until this day. 9 Upon thus, has not been to Levi a portion or an inheritance with his brothers; hwhy, He is his inheritance, as which hwhy, your Elohim, spoke to him. 10 And I, I stayed in the mountain, as the days, the first forty days and forty nights; and hwhy listened to me also in her time, hwhy did not consent to destroy you. 11 And hwhy said to me, Arise, go to journey to the face of the People, and they shall go, and they shall possess ta-the land which I swore to their fathers to give to them.

12 And now, Israel, what 
hwhy, your Elohim, requires from you, but that to fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, to walk in all His Ways, and to love Him, and to serve ta-hwhy, your Elohim, in all of your heart, and in all of your soul, 13 to keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy, and ta-His Statutes, which I am commanding you today for the goodness? 14 Behold, to hwhy, your Elohim, are the heavens, and the Heaven of the heavens, the earth, and all that are in her. 15 Only hwhy had delighted in your fathers to love them, and chose in their seed after them, in you from all the peoples, as this day. 16 And you shall circumcise ta the foreskin of your hearts, and you shall not stiffen your necks, 17 for hwhy your Elohim, He is Eloihim of the elohim, and Adonai of the adonim, the El, the Great One, the Mighty One, and the Fearful (Awe, Awesome) One, who does not lift up faces, and does not take a bribe: 18 executing the judgment of the fatherless and widow, and loving the stranger, to give to him bread and clothing. 19 And you shall love ta-the stranger: for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. 20 You shall fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim; Him you shall serve, and in Him you shall cling, and you shall swear in His Name. 21 He is your praise, and He is your Elohim, who has done for you these ta-the great and ta-the terrible things which your eyes, they have seen. 22 Your fathers, on seventy souls, they went down to Egypt; and now hwhy, your Elohim, has put you as the stars of the heavens for multitude.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verses one through three

1 In her time hwhy said to me, Carve out for yourself two tablets of stones like the first, and ascend to Me to the mountain, and you will make for yourself an Ark of wood. 2 And I will write upon the Tablets ta-the Words which they were upon the first tablets which you broke, and you shall put them in the Ark. 3 And I made an Ark of shittim wood, and carved out two tablets of stone like the first, and I ascended to the mountain, and the two tablets were in my hand,

It could be possible that this was not the Ark of the Covenant, but a smaller ark, called the Ark of the Testimony, made of shittim wood. And if it is true, this smaller Ark would be placed in the Ark of the Covenant, as noted in the Torah portion of Terumah, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 25:21 And you shall put ta-the Mercy Seat above upon the Ark; and into the Ark you shall put ta-the Testimony which I will give to you.

This is also noted in the apostle Paul's book of the Hebrews

Hebrews 9:3 And after the second veil, the Tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; 4 which had the Golden Censer, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the Golden Pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the Tables of the Covenant;

Looking at the word CARVE

The Hebrew word for carve is "peh-sehl"- Peh, Samek, Lamed (
lop). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6458, and its definition

A primitive root; to carve, whether wood or stone: - grave, hew.

This Hebrew word is where we get our modern English word "vessel". Moses was saying in a literal sense that he "vesseled"out the tablets of stones. One tablet is in reference to the heavenly relationship and one tablet is reference to the earthly relashionship, hence the heavens-earth connection.

In relation to the word of stones Moses wrote, this is what the prophet Ezekiel noted in his book

Ezekiel 11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith Adonai hwhy; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. 17 Therefore say, Thus saith Adonai hwhy; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you ta-the land of Israel. 18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away ta-all the detestable things thereof and all ta-the abominations thereof from thence. 19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh: 20 That they may walk in My Statutes, and ta-keep Mine Ordinances, and do them: and they shall be My People, and I will be their Elohim. 21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith Adonai hwhy.

Relating to tablets of stones, this is what the prophet Jeremiah says in rewriting the words to future generations, noted in his book

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith 
hwhy, that I will make a New Covenant with the House of Israel, and with the House of Judah: 32 Not according to the Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which My Covenant they brake, although I was an Husband unto them, saith hwhy: 33 But this shall be the Covenant that I will make with the House of Israel; After those days, saith hwhy, I will put My Torah in their inward parts, and write It in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be My People.

And this heart, or "vessel" of the word of the flesh was Yeshua, "the Living Word, the Vessel Of Flesh".



Verse four

4 and wrote upon the tablets, according to the first writing, ta-the Ten Words, which hwhy spoke to you in the mountain from the midst of the fire in the day of the Assembly: and hwhy gave them to me.

Moses did not say "the Ten Commandments" but he said "the Ten Words", in the Hebrew text "ah-seh-reth ha-d'vah-reem" (Myrbdh trse). Moses wanted to emphasize that "the Word" is important. Yeshua is "The Word", as John wrote

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. 2 The Same was in the beginning with Elohim. 3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. 14 And the Word was made Flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.

John was not just revealing Yeshua as the Living Word, but also the Ten Words manisfested in the flesh

John also revealed that Yeshua will return to the earth a second time by a certain Name, which is noted in the book of Revelation

Revelation 19:11 And I saw Heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He doth judge and make war. 12 His Eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His Head were many crowns; and He had a Name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. 13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His Name is called the Word of Elohim.


As Brad Scott from Wildbranch Ministries says, from the book of the prophet Isaiah, "The end is declared from the beginning".

!!!hwhy Kl bdk


I wondered if any of the explorers tried to look for that location where Moses hewn the rock at Jubal al Lawz (it is interesting that the name of this location sounds like "Jubilee of Laws") He carved the stones at the bottom around the mountain area, as well as 
hwhy hewn out the stones on the top of the mountain. Wouldn't that be a great find. Then we would know the actual shape of the stone tablets.


I have a theory: These accounts of the two Tablets of the Covenant connects to Yeshua. Yeshua was the symbolic "First Tablets of the Covenant" that were broken, by being scourged, bruised, beaten and crucified to His death at the cross, and then, Yeshua became the symbolic "Second Tablets of the Covenant", by being resurrected from the dead, to be the "Renewed Covenant" for us for eternity.

Verse six

6 And the Sons of Israel, they pulled up from Beeroth of the sons of Jaakan to Mosera: there Aaron died, and was buried there; and Eleazar, his son, was acting Priest of his stead.

Looking at the word MOSERA

The Hebrew word for Mosera is "Moh-sey-rah"- Mem, Vav, Samek, Resh, Heh (
hrowm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4149, and its definition

Feminine of H4147; correction or corrections; Moserah or Moseroth, a place in the Desert: - Mosera, Moseroth.

from 4147 "moh-seyr" or "moh-sey-rah" or "mohs-rah" (
rowm or hrowm or hrom ), and its definition

From H3256; properly chastisement, that is, (by implication) a halter; figuratively restraint: - band, bond.

from 3256 "yah-sahr" (
roy), and its definition

A primitive root; to chastise, literally (with blows) or figuratively (with words); hence to instruct: - bind, chasten, chastise, correct, instruct, punish, reform, reprove, sore, teach.

This was the location where the Mount of the Hor exists. This was a place named for Aaron, because he was to be "chastised" for not believing 
hwhy's "Words" when Moses was supposed to "speak" to the rock at Meribah, and not to strike it.



Verse ten

10 And I, I stayed in the mountain, as the days, the first forty days and forty nights; and hwhy listened to me also in her time, hwhy did not consent to destroy you.

 Why did Moses backtrack here after verses six through nine? Did he forget to insert verse ten between verses one and two? Was it a "O yeah, I forgot" moment? He already mentioned it in the previous chapter. Nevertheless, it was important enough for him to mention it again, because he wanted to emphasize again that he pleaded to 
hwhy in this week's Torah portion passage to spare the Israelites from elimination.



Verse twelve

12 And now, Israel, what hwhy, your Elohim, requires from you, but that to fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, to walk in all His Ways, and to love Him, and to serve ta-hwhy, your Elohim, in all of your heart, and in all of your soul,

This is similar to what Yeshua noted in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke

Matthew 22:37 Yeshua said unto him, Thou shalt love hwhy thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the First and Great Commandment. 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two Commandments hang all the Torah and the Prophets.

Mark 12:28 And one of the Scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? 29 And Yeshua answered him, The first of all the Commandments is, Hear, O Israel; 
hwhy our Elohim is one Elohim: 30 And thou shalt love hwhy thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the First Commandment. 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other Commandment greater than these.

Luke 10:25 And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted Him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit Eternal Life? 26 He said unto him, What is written in the Torah? How readest thou? 27 And he answering said, Thou shalt love 
hwhy thy Elohim with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. 28 And He said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.



Verse fourteen

14 Behold, to hwhy, your Elohim, are the heavens, and the Heaven of the heavens, the earth, and all that are in her.

These are so, because 
hwhy made it by the words. If I am correct, Brad Scott of Wildbranch Ministry noted in one of his teachings of "The God Particle" series, on the Hebraic Roots Network, that "the word" is the smallest particle. If he didn't, then you can say that I came to that realization- glory be to  hwhy for revealing it, no matter who figured it out. The Word is not a visible atom to see.  It was the "invisible spoken Word" that created the atoms that form the items that exists around you.

hwhy Kl bdk

and thank you Brad.



Verse sixteen

16 And you shall circumcise ta the foreskin of your hearts, and you shall not stiffen your necks,

This was thought to be only noted in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), but it was noted later in the book of the prophet Jeremiah

Jeremiah 4:3 For thus saith hwhy to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns. 4 Circumcise yourselves to hwhy, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

It is possible that the apostle Paul supports Jeremiah and makes a big deal about circumcision of the heart, which is noted in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things. 2 But we are sure that the Judgment of hwhy is according to truth against them which commit such things. 3 And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the Judgment of hwhy? 4 Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the Goodness of hwhy leadeth thee to repentance? 5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the Righteous Judgment of hwhy; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds: 7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: 8 But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the Truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, 9 Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; 10 But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile: 11 For there is no respect of persons with hwhy. 12 For as many as have sinned without Torah shall also perish without Torah: and as many as have sinned in the Torah shall be judged by the Torah; 13 (For not the hearers of the Torah are just before hwhy, but the doers of the Torah shall be justified. 14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the Torah, do by nature the things contained in the Torah, these, having not the Torah, are a Torah unto themselves: 15 Which shew the work of the Torah written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;) 16 In the day when hwhy shall
judge the secrets of men by Yeshua the Messiah according to my gospel. 17 Behold, thou art called a Jew, and restest in the Torah, and makest thy boast of
hwhy, 18 And knowest His Will, and approvest the things that are more excellent, being instructed out of the Torah; 19 And art confident that thou thyself art a guide of the blind, a light of them which are in darkness, 20 An instructor of the foolish, a teacher of babes, which hast the form of knowledge and of the Truth in the Torah. 21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? 22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit sacrilege? 23 Thou that makest thy boast of the Torah, through breaking the Torah dishonourest thou hwhy? 24 For the name of hwhy is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written. 25 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the Torah: but if thou be a breaker of the Torah, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision. 26 Therefore if the uncircumcision keep the righteousness of the Torah, shall not his uncircumcision be counted for circumcision? 27 And shall not uncircumcision which is by nature, if it fulfil the Torah, judge thee, who by the letter and circumcision dost transgress the Torah? 28 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of hwhy.



Verse seventeen

17 for hwhy your Elohim, He is Eloihim of the elohim, and Adonai of the adonim, the El, the Great One, the Mighty One, and the Fearful (Awe, Awesome) One, who does not lift up faces, and does not take a bribe:

This is Yeshua, who is coming back to earth to deal with His enemies once and for all, using Righteous Judgment against them, which is noted in the apostle John's book of Revelation

Revelation 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Revelation 19:14 And the armies which were in Heaven followed Him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15 And out of His Mouth goeth a Sharp Sword, that with It He should smite the nations: and He shall rule them with a Rod of Iron: and He treadeth the winepress of the Fierceness and Wrath of Almighty El. 16 And he hath on His Vesture and on His Thigh a Name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Yeshua is coming back as the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords to rule on the earth for the seventh thousand year of the Shabbath millenial reign.

CHAPTER 11

Deuteronomy 11:1-25

Deu 11:1 And you shall love 
ta hwhy, your Elohim, and you shall keep His Charge, and His Statutes, and His Judgments, and His Commandments, all the days, 2 and you shall know today: for is not ta-your sons whom they have not known, and whom they have not seen ta-the Chastisement of hwhy, your Elohim, ta-His greatness, ta-His strong hand, and His Outstretched Arm, 3 and ta-His Signs, and ta-His Works, which was done in the midst of Egypt unto Pharaoh, the King of Egypt, and unto all his land; 4 and which was done to the army of Egypt, to his horses, and to his chariots; when ta-the waters of the Reeds Sea overflowed upon them in their pursuing after you, and and hwhy had destroyed them unto this day;

5 and which was done to you in the wilderness, until you came unto this place; 6 and which was done to Dathan and to Abiram, sons of Eliab, son of Reuben: when the earth opened
ta-her mouth, and swallowed them, and ta-their houses, and ta-their tents, and ta all the substance which was among their feet, in the midst of all Israel: 7 for your eyes have seen ta all the Great Work of hwhy which was done. 8 And you shall keep ta-all the Commandments which I am commanding you today, by that, you may be strong, and you shall go, and you shall possess ta-the land, which you are going over there to possess her; 9 and by that, you will lengthen your days upon the ground which hwhy swore to your fathers to give to them and to their seed, of a land flowing with milk and honey, 10 for the land, which you are going there to possess her, is not as the land of Egypt, she is which you came out from there, which you seeded ta-your seed, and you watered among your feet, as a garden of herbs: 11 And the land, which you going over there to possess her, is a land of mountains and plains, to the rain of the heavens are drinking water: 12 A land which hwhy, your Elohim, cares her continually: the Eyes of hwhy, your Elohim, are upon her, from the beginning of the year and unto the latter end of the year.

13 And shall be, if hearing, you shall hearken to My Commandments which I am commanding you today, to love 
ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and to serve Him in all of your heart and in all of your soul, 14 and I will give the rain of your land in his time, the early rain and the latter rain, and you will gather your grain, and your new wine, and your oil, 15 and I will give grass in your field for your animals, and you will eat and you will be satisfied.

16 Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart shall be deceived, and you turn, and you serve other elohim, and you bow down to them; 17 And the Anger of
hwhy shall glow against you, and shall shut up ta-the heavens, and shall not be rain, and the ground shall not give ta-her increase; and you shall perish hastily from upon the good land which hwhy is giving to you.

18 And you shall put
ta-these, My Words, upon your hearts and upon your souls, and you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they shall be for frontlets between your eyes, 19 and you shall teach them, ta-your sons, to speak on them in your dwelling in your house, and in your walking in the way, and in your lying down, and in your rising, 20 and shall write them upon the door posts on your house, and on your gates: 21 by that, your days shall be multiplied, and the days of your sons, upon the ground which hwhy swore to your fathers to give to them, as the days of the heavens upon the earth.

22 For if keeping, you shall keep
ta-all these Commandments which I am commanding you to do her, to love ta-hwhy, your Elohim, to the walking in all His ways, and to cling in Him; 23 and hwhy shall dispossess ta-all these nations from your face, and you shall possess greater and mightier nations than you. 24 Every place which the soles of your feet, she shall tread on him, shall be for yourselves: from the wilderness and the Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, and unto the farthest sea shall be your border. 25 A man shall not stand against your face: hwhy, your Elohim, shall put your dread and you fear upon the face of all the land which you tread in her, as which was spoken to you.

Verses eight and nine

8 And you shall keep ta-all the Commandments which I am commanding you today, by that, you may be strong, and you shall go, and you shall possess ta-the land, which you are going over there to possess her; 9 and by that, you will lengthen your days upon the ground which hwhy swore to your fathers to give to them and to their seed, of a land flowing with milk and honey,

As I noted in the Torah portion of D'varim, in the book of Deuteronomy, Moses was restating certain sayings throughout the book of Deuteronomy over and over again. It could be compared to the children nursery rhyme "The House that Jack Built", where they add things but go backwards to the same stuff, and also like " The Twelve Days of Christmas", but in a different way, and always ending in certain statements, and this phrase in verse eight is one of them. The same matter could be applied in verse nine.




Verse ten

10 for the land, which you are going there to possess her, is not as the land of Egypt, she was which you came out from there, which you seeded ta-your seed, and you watered among your feet, as a garden of herbs:

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted by asking if the Israelites' feet watered the land, which was not. Mark explained that it was the water buckets they were carrying that watered the ground as they were walking along the ground to their destination. I also say that it was from their water buckets and pitchers they gathered water from their wells to water the land, because they were using them to pour onto the ground to water their crops.



Verses eleven through seventeen

11 And the land, which you going over there to possess her, is a land of mountains and plains, to the rain of the heavens are drinking water: 12 A land which hwhy, your Elohim, cares her continually: the Eyes of hwhy, your Elohim, are upon her, from the beginning of the year and unto the latter end of the year.

13 And shall be, if hearing, you shall hearken to My Commandments which I am commanding you today, to love 
ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and to serve Him in all of your heart and in all of your soul, 14 and I will give the rain of your land in his time, the early rain and the latter rain, and you will gather your grain, and your new wine, and your oil, 15 and I will give grass in your field for your animals, and you will eat and you will be satisfied.

16 Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart shall be deceived, and you turn, and you serve other elohim, and you bow down to them; 17 And the Anger of
hwhy shall glow against you, and shall shut up ta-the heavens, and shall not be rain, and the ground shall not give ta-her increase; and you shall perish hastily from upon the good land which hwhy is giving to you.

Beginning by looking at the definitions of the two kinds of rains.

Looking at the following words:

EARLY RAIN

The Hebrew word for early rain is "yoh-reh"- Mem, Vav, Resh, Heh (
hrwy). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3138, and its definition

Active participle of H3384; sprinkling; hence a sprinkling (or autumnal showers): - first rain, former [rain].

from 3384 "yah-rah" (
hry), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to flow as water (that is, to rain); transitively to lay or throw (especially an arrow, that is, to shoot); figuratively to point out (as if by aiming the finger), to teach: -  (+) archer, cast, direct, inform, instruct, lay, shew, shoot, teach (-er, -ing), through.


LATTER RAIN

The Hebrew word for latter rain is "mahl-kosh"- Mem, Lamed, Kuph, Vav, Shin (
swqlm). It is from Strong's Concordance number 4456, and its definition

From H3953; the spring rain (compare H3954); figuratively eloquence: - latter rain.

from 3954 "leh-kesh" (
sql), and its definiton

From H3953; the after crop: - latter growth.

from 3953 "lah-kash" (
sql), and its definition

A primitive root; to gather the after crop: - gather.

I will expain some things relating to these two words in a bit.


Praise and glory to hwhy for revealing this to me, and I give Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries partial credit for this topic. I have yet to hear this from any other source. Regarding the early rains, these two kinds of rains relate to the two kinds of seasons that pertain to the three harvest periods in the Biblical Harvest Cyclical Year. The early rains relate to the Spring Feasts, which relate to the Spring High Holy Days of the feasts of Passover/Unleavened Bread and Shavuoth (Pentecost/First Fruits II), and the latter rains relate to the Fall High Holy Days of the Feast of Sukkoth (Tabernacles/Ingathering/Booths).

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that the Hebrew word for early rains also means "teacher", where we get the word "Torah". In my noting, Yeshua is "the Teacher" in our lives.

 Regarding the latter rains, notice that root of the Hebrew word for latter rains also means "gather". The latter rains symbolically relate to the Spring High Holy Days, where Yeshua "gathers" us to be part of the relationship with the Heavenly Father, and latter rains are connected with the Heavenly Father's Spring High Holy Day Feasts, in which Yeshua fulfilled them:

Passover: Yeshua as the Passover Lamb.
The Feast of the Unleavened Bread: Yeshua, the Living Word, which in Him was no leaven of sin.
Shavuoth (Pentecost/First Fruits II): The Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) came down in tongues of fire on Yeshua's disciples in the book of Acts chapter two.

Mark Biltz also noted of this connection to both rains in the book of the prophet Joel

Joel 2:21 Fear not, O land; be glad and rejoice: for hwhy will do great things. 22 Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength. 23 Be glad then, ye sons of Zion, and rejoice in hwhy your Elohim: for he hath given you ta-the former (early) rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the early rain, and the latter rain in the first month.

If this word "month" in Italics is correctly interpreted, that meant this would have occurred in the first Biblical month, which is AVIV, and not Tishrei. Mark Biltz also noted the Aleph-Tav next to the phrase "the former (early) rain"

Looking at the word FORMER (EARLY)

The
Hebrew word for former is "moh-reh"- Mem, Vav, Resh, Heh (hrwm). It is from Strong's concordance number 4175, and its definition

From H3384; an archer; also teacher or teaching; also the early rain (see H3138): - (early) rain.

The rest of the roots of this word is noted above.
Mark connects the Aleph-Tav with this word to Yeshua, "the Aleph and the Tav (the Alpha and the Omega in Greek)", who is "the Teacher". This connects "the Teacher" to the former rains, which relates to the Fall High Holy Days.


The Kingdom of Judah rebelled in its days before their Babylonian captivity, and it is noted in the book of the prophet Jeremiah

Jeremiah 5:23 But this People hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone. 24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear 
hwhy, our Elohim, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season: he reserveth unto us the ordinance of the harvest.

The former and latter rains are also applied to us today as believers, and it is noted in the book of the apostle James

James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of 
hwhy. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

We as believers in the Messiah bear an internal harvest of the fruits of the spirit, and 
hwhy will look for that precious fruit for those who walk in the faith. We will get the former and latter rains via the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) in our obedience to hwhy, our Heavenly Father when we observe His Torah and the Spring and Fall High Holy Days, as well as having a relationship with Him through Yeshua, the Messiah.

In connection with verse twelve of this week's Torah portion passage, this is something that Adam failed to do in the beginning. As I wrote in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis, Adam blamed hwhy and Khavah, his wife for his disobedience in taking the fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. But according to Billye Brim of Billye Brim Ministries, he did not blame the serpent, because if Adam did, he would have acknowledged that he failed to keep watch over the garden and guard her, hence the shame of mankind (in Hebrew "Adam") had gone down to their private parts and was hidden there, which also revealed the pride in mankind for the first time in human history. This shame in their private parts was passed on throughout the generations in human history until Yeshua came and was crucified. When Yeshua was crucified, He was completely naked and His private parts were exposed, hence taking on and exposing "the shame of mankind, "Adam", which Adam created.

In relation to verse twelve of this week's Torah portion passage also reminds me of a Psalm noted in the book of the Psalms

Psalm 121:4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

If anyone is interested, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy (1809-1847) was a classical musician and composer in the early 1800's, which was called the Romantic Era. He was also a Christian Jew. He wrote an oratorio called Elijah. One of his tunes in the oratorio contains Psalm 121:4. This recording was performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, under the direction of Robert Shaw. Right click the link below and choose "Save As".

FELIX MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy: He, Wathing Over Israel, Slumbers Not

I suggest you to look up this oratorio and listen to it. It is one of Mendelssohn's greatest works.


Also, looking at the two types of rains: the early rains and the latter rains. If one went by the Gregorian Calendar, we would presume that the early rains would be roughly in the Spring, maybe around March or April, and the latter rains would be in the Summer, between July and August. But looking at this from a Hebraic Biblial perspective, the early rains would relate to the "early numerical ordinals of the Biblical Calendar: i.e. 1- Aviv, 2- Iyar, 3- Sivan, etc. Looking at the Biblical harvest times, it would be too late for the early rains to happen during the months of Aviv through the early month of Sivan, since that was the Harvest period for Passover/Unleavened Bread and Shavuoth. This means that these early rains would apply to the "Summer Gregorian months" which would occur before the "Fall harvest" for the "Fall High Holy Day of Sukkoth".

The latter rains would apply to the Biblical latter month ordinals of the Biblcial year: i.e. 7- Tishrei, 8- Cheshvan, 9- Kislev, etc. The latter rains would occur too early for the Biblical month of Tishrei, during the Fall harvest period. That means the latter rains would have to occur between the Fall and Winter Gregorian Months, which would fall in the Biblical months between the eighth and twelfth months. This means that the latter rains would occur for the "Spring harvests" for the Spring High Holy Days of Passover/Unleavened Bread and Shavuoth"

This is a chart of the potential Biblical early and latter rains of the Biblical year, in its estimated proper time frame

Verses eighteen through twenty-one

18 And you shall put ta-these, My Words, upon your hearts and upon your souls, and you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they shall be for frontlets between your eyes, 19 and you shall teach them, ta-your sons, to speak on them in your dwelling in your house, and in your walking in the way, and in your lying down, and in your rising, 20 and shall write them upon the door posts on your house, and on your gates: 21 by that, your days shall be multiplied, and the days of your sons, upon the ground which hwhy swore to your fathers to give to them, as the days of the heavens upon the earth.

This is a repeat of the Shema, without the beginning from the Torah portion of Naso, in the book of Deuteronomy

Deutereonomy 6:4 Hear, Israel: hwhy our Elohim is One hwhy: 5 and you shall love ta-hwhy, your Elohim, in all if your heart, and in all of your soul, and in all of your might. 6 And shall be these words which I command you upon your heart today: 7 and you shall prick them to your sons, and shall speak on them in your dwelling in your house, and in your walking in the way, and in your lying down, and in your rising. 8 And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes, 9 and you shall write them upon the doorposts on your house, and on your gates.



Verses twenty two through twenty five

22 For if keeping, you shall keep ta-all these Commandments which I am commanding you to do her, to love ta-hwhy, your Elohim, to the walking in all His ways, and to cling in Him; 23 and hwhy shall dispossess ta-all these nations from your face, and you shall possess greater and mightier nations than you. 24 Every place which the soles of your feet, she shall tread on him, shall be for yourselves: from the wilderness and the Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, and unto the farthest sea shall be your border. 25 A man shall not stand against your face: hwhy, your Elohim, shall put your dread and you fear upon the face of all the land which you tread in her, as which was spoken to you.

The Israelites' travels included territories that covered parts of modern Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, as well as Iraq and Kuwait. That was a lot of walking during their forty year journey.

Looking at a map of the potential territory the Israelites covered in their forty year journey

Israel's Greater Border

This commandment has yet to be fulfilled.

Indirectly related, Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries made a great revelation regarding love and borders. Mark has revealed that the United States have been saying that "love has no borders", and there are many others. I know I am putting many of these logos and signs on this week's Torah portion passage, but I want you see what the world is doing to the society today. Looking at these signs and logos below that emphasize no borders, or no boundaries:

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No BoundariesNo Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries


Mark also noted organizations without boundaries. Looking at these signs and logos without boundaries:

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries
No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries 
No Borders, No Boundaries

 No Borders, No Boundaries


And also the news, and TV channel logos and signs are providing no borders. Looking at these signs and logos:

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries

No Borders, No Boundaries No Borders, No Boundaries

And what does the Public Television Network in the United States have for one of their channels? "the World Channel".

No Borders, No Boundaries


Accoding to Mark, the world has this love idea all wrong. Mark says regarding true love is this:

"TRUE LOVE HAS "STRONG" BORDERS!!!"

All I can say to Mark is "AMEN, AND AMEN!!!"


Would you also believe, this is what the Muslims believe as well? All the lands they conquered in Europe in the Middle Ages, they want back. And now today, they are doing it by populating the lands in Europe and in North America. Jim Staley, formerly of Passion For Truth Ministries, has a video teaching titled The End of The Age: Jacob vs Esau, and played a short video on this Muslim populating quest. They are doing it successfully too. It says in the video that a nation needs to main a 2.11 average children for every couple to maintain growth and stability. Right now, the U.S. is at 1.6 per couple, but with the immigrants coming in from the south, it would be at 2.11. But the Muslims' fertility rate are populating between four and eight children per couple. The fertility rate in Europe is worse today. I posted his You Tube video link below, which he shows a seven minute video regarding the rate of fertility issue in Europe and in North America. It starts at the 14:42 mark into the video.
