First of all, I don't know who made the decision to split chapter twenty five and placed it in last week's and this week's Torah portions, but the majority of the Messianic leaders agree that it was not smart to split the chapter up between last week's and this week's portions when Phinehas is in the whole chapter. Soooooooo I inserted last week's Torah portion to this week's Torah portion as an addendum to lead up to this week's portion. For those who don't want to see it, you can skip over to the current Torah portion.

So, here it is.



CHAPTER 25

Numbers 25:1-9

Num 25:1 And Israel dwelled in the Shittim, and the People profaned by fornicating to the daughters of Moab. 2 And they called the People to the sacrifices of their elohim: and the People ate, and bowed down to their elohim. 3 And Israel joined to Baal Peor: and the Anger of hwhy burned against Israel. 4 And hwhy said to Moses, Take ta-all the heads of the People, and hang them to hwhy before the sun, and turn the Fierce Anger of hwhy from Israel. 5 And Moses said to the Judges of Israel, Slay a man of his men that are joined to Baal Peor. 6 And behold, a man from the Sons of Israel came, and brought to his brothers ta-the Midianitess to the eyes of Moses, and to the eyes of all the Congregation of the Sons of Israel, and who were weeping at the Entrance of the Tent of Appontment. 7 And Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron, the Priest, saw, and arose from the midst of the Congregation, and took a spear in his hand; 8 and went after the man of Israel toward the pavillion, and thrusted ta-both of them, ta the man of Israel and ta-the woman to her belly. And the plague, she was stayed from upon the Sons of Israel. 9 And they were that were dead by the plague four and twenty thousand.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verses one through three

1 And Israel dwelled in the Shittim, and the People profaned by fornicating to the daughters of Moab. 2 And they called the People to the sacrifices of their elohim: and the People ate, and bowed down to their elohim. 3 And Israel joined to Baal Peor: and the Anger of hwhy burned against Israel.

Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries deserves the credit for this basis of the Food Covenant. A Food Covenenant is a covenant of finalization, and completes and seals a vow, or a promise, or a contract, and it cannot be broken. An example is in the Torah portion of Toldoth, in the book of Genesis, where a Food Covenant was made between Esau and Jacob, when Esau sold his birthright to Jacob and sealed that Food Covenant by Esau eating the red lentils. Another example is in the Torah portion of Vay-Yeytsey, in the book of Genesis, when Jacob requested that Rachel would be his wife, but slyish Laban made a "non-answer answer", and did not make the promise. Laban switched sisters and put Leah in the marriage bed, presumably by Jacob to be Rachel. Jacob ate the feast for his marriage, but when Jacob ate, he sealed his contract with Laban via the Food Covenant. Laban in general had to give Jacob a wife, which became Leah, because she was the one in the bedchamber. Jacob could not divorce her because of that Food Covenant, even if Laban did wrong against him. Also in the book of Joshua, the two Canaanites disguised as peasants made a Food Covenant with Joshua in the land of Canaan, promising Joshua that he would not kill them, and they ate, thus, completing the Food Covenant. Joshua found out later that they were Canaanites, but he could not kill him on account of that Food Covenant.

This is the same matter regarding the Israelites eating the food the Midianite women provided. The Midianite women offered the food to their pagan elohim, and when the Israelite men ate that food, they sealed their fate through that Food Covenant by acknowledging their Midianite elohim. When they did that, they rejected 
hwhy
and they sealed their fate of death.

Rico Cortes also noted that this was a common ancient near east ritual of the day by having a ritual fonication to their perverse pagan elohim. He also noted that Balaam knew that they couldn't defeat Israel without, but they could destroy Israel from within through this account. He also noted that this was how King Solomon fell from favor from hwhy by marrying foreign women, and serving their perverse pagan elohim, noted in the book of the Kings

1 Kings 11:1 But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with ta-the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites; 2 Of the nations concerning which hwhy said unto the Sons of Israel, Ye shall not go in to them, neither shall they come in unto you: for surely they will turn away your heart after their elohim: Solomon clave unto these in ta-love. 3 And he had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines: and his wives turned away his heart. 4 For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned away ta-his heart after other elohim: and his heart was not perfect with hwhy, his Elohim, as was the heart of David, his father.

Indirectly related, the apostle Paul made an issue regarding food sacrificed to idols in his letter to the assembly at Corinth

1 Corinthians 10:16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the Blood of Messiah? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the Body of Messiah? 17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one Bread. 18 Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the Altar? 19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? 20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to hwhy: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. 21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils. 22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than He? 23 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. 24 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth. 25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake: 26 For the earth is hwhy's, and the fulness thereof. 27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake. 28 But if any man say unto you, This is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is hwhy's, and the fulness thereof: 29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience? 30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks? 31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the Glory of hwhy. 32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the Assembly of hwhy: 33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.



Verse four

4 And hwhy said to Moses, Take ta-all the heads of the People, and hang them to hwhy before the sun, and turn the Fierce Anger of hwhy from Israel.

This is not the earliest account of any person being hanged in human history. It is noted in the Torah portion of Vay-Yeyshev, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 40:16 And the chief of the bakers saw that the interpretation was good, and said to Joseph, Even I was in my dream, and behold, three baskets of coriander bread were upon my head: 17 And in the top of the basket from all the the food of Pharaoh was the work of a baker; and the birds were eating them from the basket, from upon my head. 18 And Joseph answered and said, This is His interpretation: The three baskets, they are three days: 19 In yet three days Pharaoh will lift ta-your head from upon you, and shall hang you upon a tree; and the birds shall eat ta-your flesh from upon you.

 It was most likely that they hanged them on trees. That was most likely why 
hwhy made this Commandment, noted in the Torah portion of Ki Theytsey, in the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 21:22 And if shall be in a man sin of the judgment of death, and is dead, and you shall hang him upon a tree: 23 You shall not leave his carcass upon the tree, for burying, you shall bury in his day; for is accursed of Elohim to be hanged; and you shall not defile ta-your ground, which hwhy your Elohim is giving to you of an inheritance.

Indirectly related, the Messiah redeemed us from the curse of the Torah, as the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Galatia

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the Torah are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the Book of the Torah to do them. 11 But that no man is justified by the Torah in the sight of hwhy, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. 12 And the Torah is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them. 13 Messiah hath redeemed us from the curse of the Torah, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Yeshua, the Messiah; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Zimri was supposed to have been hanged with the other leaders, but Zimri was already acting out in defiance in public against 
hwhy
and his brothers. As it is mentioned in verse eight, Phinehas stabbed Zimri and Cozbi with the spear and killed them. There are some Messianic/Hebraic Roots leaders who say that Phinehas bypassed the due process of justice and went straight into the judgment to kill them. That is not the case. hwhy already made the judgment in verse four for them to be hanged, but because Zimri was walking in pride in defiance against hwhy and the People, Phinehas' righteous indignation and his act in killing Zimri and Cosbie was an act of an alternate judgment, and was just. One reason was that he was a son of Eliezer, the High Priest. The other reason was that Phinehas had to kill him, otherwise the plague would have continued.

Yeshua was a descendant of Phinehas through his biological mother, Mary, and because He was, and is, Phinehas' descendant. As Brad Scott of Wildbranch Ministry, and Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries said that history repeats itself, and that the Hebraic timeline is cyclical. In Yeshua's case, He was going to repeat history in the end times. Though it does not mean that it has to be the same exact purpose, Yeshua is coming in the future to destroy His enemies, as we see clearly in the apostle John's 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 hwhy. 14 And the armies which were in the heavens 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. 17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of the heavens, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great Elohim; 18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great. 19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him that sat on the horse, and against His army. 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of Him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of His Mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Yeshua followed His ancestor, Phinehas' example, but on a world wide scale.



Verse six

6 And behold, a man from the Sons of Israel came, and brought to his brothers ta-the Midianitess to the eyes of Moses, and to the eyes of all the Congregation of the Sons of Israel, and who were weeping at the Entrance of the Tent of Appontment.

According to Rico Cortes, this is an act of ultimate defiance against hwhy and Moses. Later in this chapter, in the next Torah portion of Pinkhas, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 25:14 And the name of the man of Israel that was slain, whom was slain with ta-the Midianitess, was Zimri, son of Salu, a ruler of the house of the father to the Simeonites. 15  And the name of the Midianitess woman that was slain was Cozbi, daughter of Zur, he was head of the mothers of the house of the father in Midian.



Verse nine

9 And they were that were dead by the plague four and twenty thousand.

That's a lot of men who died in this plague. It is hard to imagine that huge amount in one account with the Midianite women. There had to have been at least that many of Midanitessess as well. That many people covered a large area. This was an all out scale attack against the Israelites.




Looking at the following words:

PAVILLION

In verse eight, the Hebrew word for pavillion is "kah-bah"- Quph, Bet, Heh
(hbq). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6898, and its definition

From H6895; a pavilion (as a domed cavity): - tent.

from 6895, "kah-bahb"- Quph, Bet, Bet
(bbq), and its definition

A primitive root; to scoop out, that is, (figuratively) to malign or execrate (that is, stab with words): -    X at all, curse.

Anyone heard of the word "Shish Kabab", the stuff that is "stabbed" on a skewer? This is where we get our modern English word from the Hebrew.


BELLY

Also in verse eight, the Hebrew word for belly is "qoh-bah"- Quph, Bet, Resh
(hbq). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6897, and its definition

From H6895; the abdomen (as a cavity): - belly.


the same 6895 definition mentioned above.

Based on this definition, a pavillion is a scooped location. Also based on this notion, it looks like the Israelite and the Moabitess unkowingly were prepared for their own "graves" and Phinehas gave them a reason to be killed in it. Phineas stabbed not just to his own pavillion, now gravesite (kabah (
hbq
)) for Zimri and Cosbi. Also, Phinehas "stabbed" the Midianitess' "womb", now also a grave (qobah (hbq)) where she can't bear any children. So, jokingly, Phinehas made a "kabab" out of those two :) .


ZIMRI

The Hebrew word for Zimri is "Zeem-ree"- Zayin, Mem, Resh, Yod
(yrmz). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2174, and its definition

From H2167; musical; Zimri, the name of five Israelites, and of an Arabian tribe: - Zimri.

from 2167 "zah-mahr"
(rmz), and its definition

A primitive root (perhaps identical with H2168 through the idea of striking with the fingers); properly to touch the strings or parts of a musical instrument, that is, play upon it; to make music, accompanied by the voice; hence to celebrate in song and music: - give praise, sing forth praises, psalms.


Zimri means "music".


SALU

The Hebrew word Salu is "Sah-loo"- Samek, Lamed, Vav, Aleph
(awlo). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5543, and its definition

From H5541; weighed; Sallu or Sallai, the name of two Israelites: - Sallai, Sallu, Salu.

from 5541 "sah-lah"
(hlo), and its definition

A primitive root; to hang up, that is, weigh, or (figuratively) contemn: - tread down (under foot), value.


Salu means "trodden down".

With the two definitions of these names together, it says:

"Music Trodden Down"


COZBI

The Hebrew word for Cozbi is "Kahz-bee"- Kaph, Zayin, Bet, Yod
(ybzk). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3579, and its definition

From H3576; false; Cozbi, a Midianitess: - Cozbi.

from 3576 "kah-zahv" 
(bzk), and its definition

A primitive root; to lie (that is, deceive), literally or figuratively: - fail, (be found a, make a) liar, lie, lying, be in vain.

Cozbi means "false" and "vain".



ZUR

The Hebrew word for Zur is "Tsoor"- Tsade, Vav, Resh
(rwu). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6698, and its definition

The same as H6697; rock; Tsur, the name of a Midianite and of an Israelite: - Zur.

from 6697 "tsoor"
(rwu), and its definition

From H6696; properly a cliff (or sharp rock, as compressed); generally a rock or boulder; figuratively a refuge; also an edge (as precipitous): - edge, X (mighty) God (one), rock, X sharp, stone, X strength, X strong. See also H1049.

from 6696 "tsoor"
(rwu), and its definition

A primitive root; to cramp, that is, confine (in many applications, literally and figuratively, formative or hostile): - adversary, assault, beset, besiege, bind (up), cast, distress, fashion, fortify, inclose, lay siege, put up in bags.

Zur means "rock".

With the two definitions of these names together, it says:

"A Vain Rock"

With all the definitions together, it states a phrase:

"Music Trodden Down by a Vain Rock"


I will give Phinehas' definition information in next week's Torah portion.


Phinehas was not the only Levite that killed another man. Looking in the book of Samuel

1 Samuel 15:32 Then said Samuel, Bring ye hither to me Agag the king of the Amalekites. And Agag came unto him delicately. And Agag said, Surely the bitterness of death is past. 33 And Samuel said, As thy sword hath made women childless, so shall thy mother be childless among women. And Samuel hewed Agag in pieces before hwhy in Gilgal.

Wow! Was Samuel a butcher. Saul rebelled against the Voice of hwhy by not killing everything and everyone in the battle, but spared some the animals and King Agag, the Amelikite, which cost Saul his kingship. And Samuel, the prophet, who was also a Levite, a descendant of Korah from Korah's rebellion, killed King Agag in front of Saul.


In this week's Torah portion chapter, the Israelites made battle against Balaam's people, which is noted later in the Torah portion of Matoth, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 31:1 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Avenge vengance of the Sons of Israel from ta the Midianim: afterward, you shall be gathered to your People. 3 And Moses spoke to the People, to say, Arm with you men for the army, and they shall be upon Midian, to give the vengance of hwhy on Midian. 4 A thousand to a tribe, a thousand to a tribe, for all the tribes of Israel, you shall send to the battle. 5 And they were comitted from the thousands of Israel, a thousand to a tribe, twelve thousand armed ones of the battle. 6 And Moses sent them, a thousand of every tribe, to the battle, them and ta-Phinehas, son of Eleazar, the Priest, to the battle, and the Holy Vessels, and the Trumpets of the sounding in his hand. 7 And they battled against Midian, as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses; and they killed every male. 8 And they killed ta-the kings of Midian upon their slain; ta-Evi, and ta-Rekem, and ta-Zur, and ta-Hur, and ta-Reba, five kings of Midian: And ta Balaam, son of Beor, they killed on the sword.

This is what Moses said in the Torah portion of Ki Theytsey, in the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 23:3 An Ammonite and a Moabite shall not enter in the Assembly of hwhy; also the tenth generation shall not enter in the Assembly of hwhy unto ages: 4 Upon the Word which they not met you on bread and on water in the way in your coming out from Egypt; and which was hired upon you ta-Balaam, son of Beor, from Pethor of Aram Naharim, to curse you. 5 hwhy, your Elohim, shall not consent to hearken to Balaam; and hwhy, your Elohim, changed for you ta-the curse to a blessing, for hwhy, your Elohim, loves you. 6 You shall not inquire their peace and their goodness all of your days for ages.

Because of what Balaam did against the Israelites, the Ammonites and the Moabites were not to be part of the Assembly of Israel at all. Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted one exception to that Commandment, and that was Ruth, the Moabitess, in the book of Ruth, who was married to the Israelite nation via her marriage to Boaz, and later became the great-grandmother to King David and an ancestor of Yeshua.

We could roughly configure the time line she came into the land of Israel by looking at the account the House of hwhy was built, noted in the book of the Kings

1 Kings 6:1 And it came to pass in the four hundred and eightieth year after the sosns of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the fourth year of Solomon's reign over Israel, in the month Zif, which is the second month, that he began to build the House of hwhy....38 And in the eleventh year, in the month Bul, which is the eighth month, was the house finished throughout all the parts thereof, and according to all the fashion of it. So was he seven years in building it.

Roughly, the Temple started about 956 BC, and was finished about 949 BC, during the eleventh reign of King Solomon. King David started to reign around 1000 BC in Judah for 6 1/2 years and all of Israel for 33 1/2 years. King David was thirty years old when he reign. This would take his birth to about 1030 BC. His father, Jesse, had seven sons before David. He would have been roughly between thirty and forty years old having David. This takes it to between 105o and 1060 BC. Jesse's father, Obed, could have been in his twenties when Jesse was born. This would take it to around between 1090-1095 BC and 1080-1085 BC. Say it was around 1100 BC that Ruth gave birth to Obed. That was about 151 years prior to the beginning of the Temple to be built, which it finished 480 years after the Exodus. Since Moses made this Commandment to the People, It was 440 years ago from the time hwhy's Temple began to be built that Moses said this verse to the Israelites. Take 151 years and subtract it from 440 years, and it comes to 249 years later by the time Ruth came into the land of Israel.

Now figuring a generation would have been between twenty and twenty five years each, multiplying that by ten generations, that would take it to between 200 years with a 49 years difference at the time of Moses, and 250 years with one year before Moses said this. This would fit within the timeline that Ruth the Moabitess came into the land, and strongly probable that she was the eleventh generation of a Moabite. That is why she had the right to go into the land of Israel and become an Israelitess.



Mark Biltz of El Shadadi Ministries was also inflential in this part. Finding out later in the Torah, the Apostle John noted one of the seven assemblies regarding Balaam in his book of Revelation

Revelation 2:12 And to the angel of the assembly in Pergamos write; These things saith He which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where HaSatan's seat is: and thou holdest fast My Name, and hast not denied My faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where HaSatan dwelleth. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to cast a stumblingblock before the Sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 5 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My Mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

One of the issues was that some of them were holding onto the doctrine of Balaam, and Balaam schemed to curse the Israelites within themselves through fornication. In many ways, the apostle John wrote to them to say to gather the people to rid of the doctrine, or get rid of the people. Because of what Balaam did to the Israelites, those people will do the same thing to the assembly in Pergamos.

According to the apostle John, whom Yeshua most likely told him, they made battle against Balaam's people as noted above.




Now unto this week's Torah portion.







CHAPTER 25

Numbers 25:10-18

Num 25:10 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 11 Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron, the Priest, has turned ta-My Wrath away from upon the Sons of Israel, in his zealousy of ta-My Zeal in their midst, and I did not finish off ta-the Sons of Israel in My Jealousy. 12 So say thus, Behold, has been given to him ta-My Covenant of Peace: 13 And she shall be for him, and for his seed after him, the Covenant of a Priesthood of Ages; because of which was zealous for his Elohim, and atoned upon the Sons of Israel. 14 And the name of the man of Israel that was slain, whom was slain with ta-the Midianitess, was Zimri, son of Salu, a ruler of the house of the father to the Simeonites. 15 And the name of the Midianitess woman that was slain was Cozbi, daughter of Zur, he was head of the mothers of the house of the father in Midian.

16 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 17 Afflict ta-the Midianites, and you shall strike them: 18 for they were afflictors to you in their conspiracy, which they conspired toward you upon the matter of Peor, and upon the matter of Cozbi, daughter of a ruler of Midian, their sister, that struck in the day of the plague upon the word of Peor.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments.)


Looking at the word PHINEHAS

PHINEHAS

The Hebrew word for Phinehas is "Peen-khahs"- Peh, Yod, Nun, Khet, Samek (
oxnyp). It is from Strong's Concordance number 6372, and its definition

"Apparently from H6310 and a variation of H5175; mouth of a serpent; Pinechas, the name of three Israelites: - Phinehas".


Phi

from 6310 "peh" (
hp), and its definition

"From H6284; the mouth (as the means of blowing), whether literally or figuratively (particularly speech); specifically edge, portion or side; adverbially (with preposition) according to: - accord (-ing as, -ing to), after, appointment, assent, collar, command (-ment), X eat, edge, end, entry, + file, hole, X in, mind, mouth, part, portion, X (should) say (-ing), sentence, skirt, sound, speech, X spoken, talk, tenor, X to, + two-edged, wish, word".


from 6284 "pah'ah" (
hap), and its definition

"A primitive root; to puff, that is, blow away: - scatter into corners".

Nehas

from 5175 "nah-khash" (
sxn), and its definition

"From H5172; a snake (from its hiss): - serpent".

from 5172 "nah-khash", and its definition

"A primitive root; properly to hiss, that is, whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate: -  X certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) X enchantment, learn by experience, X indeed, diligently observe".

Phinehas means "The Mouth Of The Serpent". In this case Phinehas became the "mouth" to strike like a "serpent" against Zimri and Cozbi (with their fathers' names meaning 
"Music Trodden Down by a Vain Rock" from last week's Torah portion, Balak) who were part of the cause of the plague.


Another issue is that Phinehas and Zimri were of the tribes of Levi and Simeon. There is a major account regarding the two founding fathers noted in the book of Vay-Yishlakh, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 34:25 
And was in the third day, in their being of pain, and two of the sons of Jacob, Simeon and Levi, brothers of Dinah, they took each his sword, and they came upon the city boldly, and they killed every male. 26 And they killed ta-Hamor and ta-Shechem, his son, by the mouth of the sword, and they took ta-Dinah from the house Shechem's house, and they went out. 27 The sons of Jacob, they came upon the slain, and they plundered the city, which they had defiled their sister. 28 They took ta-their flocks, and ta-their herds, and ta-their donkeys, and ta what was in the city, and ta-what was in the field, 29 And ta-all their wealth, and ta-all their little ones, and ta-their wives they took captive, they plundered, and ta all that was in the house.

Simeon and Levi were united in the destruction of Shechem, for the sake of their sister, Dinah, thinking they were doing the right thing. In this week's Torah portion, a descendant of Levi attacked a descendant of Simeon, his cousin, for the sake of righteousness. 
hwhy would have had the right to punish Phinehas for not staying in his place as a Priest, and had someone else do it who was not, like Jacob did when he chastised Simeon and Levi for their acts. Instead, hwhy rewarded Phinehas, not just any reward, but an eternal reward for turning away His wrath from the Israelites, which was the weightier matter of the Torah, by giving Phinehas as Covenant of Peace. I will explain this later in this chapter's commentary.

Indirectly related, Phinehas' account is similar to Yeshua when He accused the Pharisees for not looking into the weightier matters of the Torah: Judgment, mercy and faith. It is noted in the Gospel of Matthew.

Matthew 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Torah, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.


Looking at the word JEALOUSY

In verse eleven, the Hebrew word for jealousy is "kee-nah"- Kuph, Nun, Aleph, Heh (
hanq). It is from Strong's Concordance number 7068, and its definition

"From H7065; jealousy or envy: - envy (-ied), jealousy, X sake, zeal".


from 7065 "kah-nah"
(anq), and its definition

"A primitive root; to be (causatively make) zealous, that is, (in a bad sense) jealous or envious: -  (be) envy (-ious), be (move to, provoke to) jealous (-y), X very, (be) zeal (-ous)".


This word can mean "jealous" or "zealous".

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), there was one disciple mentioned in relevence to this word, and it is in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark

Matthew10:4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.

Mark 3:18 And Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Canaanite,

According to Mark Biltz, the translators made a mistake in Simon's name. It is not "Simon the Canaanite", and the books of Luke and Acts had the right noting of who Simon was

Luke 6:15 Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,

Acts 1:13 And when they were come in, they went up into an upper room, where abode both Peter, and James, and John, and Andrew, Philip, and Thomas, Bartholomew, and Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon Zelotes, and Judas the brother of James.

This surname "Zelotes" is form the word "zeal" from the Hebrew word "kah-nah". In other words the translators should have written Simon the "Kenanite", not Canaanite.

Thank you Mark.

There is one verse that implies zealousy over Zion, in which Ted Pearce made a song based on this verse in the book of the prophet Zechariah

Zecariah 8:2 Thus saith hwhy of Hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. 3 Thus saith hwhy; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the Mountain of hwhy of Hosts, the Holy Mountain. 4 Thus saith hwhy of Hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age. 5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in her streets. 6 Thus saith hwhy of Hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this People in these days, should it also be marvellous in Mine eyes? saith hwhy of Hosts. 7 Thus saith hwhy of Hosts; Behold, I will save ta-My People from the east country, and from the west country;

This is an end time prophecy that Yeshua will bring us to Jerusalem to live with Him.

Mark Biltz, as well as Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted Yeshua's zealousness at the Temple in Jerusalem in the Gosepl of John

John 2:13 And the Jews' Passover was at hand, and Yeshua went up to Jerusalem, 14 And found in the Temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when He had made a scourge of small cords, He drove them all out of the Temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables; 16 And said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not My Father's House an house of merchandise. 17 And His disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.

This scripture was taken from the book of Psalms

Psalms 69:9 For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.

These sources are from the same Hebrew word, kah-nah.


Question: "Why was Phinehas able to kill humans when he was a Priest who was not to be involved with killing human beings at all, and what gave him the right to do this"? I have heard from a Hebraic roots teacher that Phinehas' mother was a Midianite, but I have a different theory.

Looking at the birth of Phinehas, noted in the Torah portion of Va-Eyra, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 6:25 And Eleazar, son of Aaron, took for himself from the daughters of Putiel to him for a wife; and she birthed to him ta-Phinehas: these are the heads of the fathers of the Levites by their families.

Phinehas' mother was a daughter of Putiel. Who is Putiel?

Looking at the word PUTIEL

The Hebrew word for Putiel is "Poo-tee-eyl"- Peh, Vav, Tet, Yod, Aleph, Lamed (
layjwp) is from Strong's Concordance number 6317, and its definition

From an unused root (probably meaning to disparage) and H410; contempt of God; Putiel, an Israelite: - Putiel.


There is no root word, but there is a possible alternate word:

from Strong's Concordance number 6336 "Poo-thee"- Peh, Vav, Tav, Yod (
ytwp), and its definition

Patronymic from an unused name meaning a hinge; a Puthite (collectively) or descendant of an unknown Puth. (As if from H6312.): - Puhites [as if from H6312].


from Strong's Concordance number 6312 "poo'ah" or "poov-vah" (
hwp or hawp), and its definition

From H6284; a blast; Puah or Puvvah, the name of two Israelites: - Phuvah, Pua, Puah.


from 6284 "pah'ah" (
hap), and its definition

A primitive root; to puff, that is, blow away: - scatter into corners.

There is a person named Puah and Phuvvah, and it is noted in the Torah portion of Vay-Yigash, in the book of Genesis, and in this week's Torah portion of Pinkhas, in the book of Numbers

PHUVAH

Genesis 46:13 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.

PUAH

Numbers 26:23 The sons of Issachar by their families: of Tola, the family of the Tolaites: of Pua, the family of the Punites: 24 Of Jashub, the family of the Jashubites: of Shimron, the family of the Shimronites.

As one can see, the names of these four brothers on the information of Phuvah and Puah are similar. In my humble, but strong opinion, it reveals to us that Phinehas' mother was of the tribe of Issachar. Noting this is interesting in itself that there was a intertribal marriage between Phinehas' father, Eliezer, the current High Priest in this time, and his mother, a descendant of Issachar. In other words, Phinehas was not a full fledged Levite. Would this be sufficient enough evidence for him to do what he did as a Levite Priest? It is possible, but that's not all.

Looking further into his heritage in the book of Exodus, this is what the scripture says regarding his tribal founder, Levi, noted in the Torah portion of Va-Eyra, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 6:23 And Aaron took ta-Elisheba, daughter of Amminadab, sister of Nahshon, to himself for a wife; and she birthed to him ta-Nadab, and ta-Abihu, ta-Eleazar, and ta-Ithamar.

This is the $64,000 question: "Does it say what tribe Amminadab was from"? The answer is "yes", and it is found in the Torah portion of B'midbar, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 2:3 And the ones pitching to the east with the rising, the standard of the camp of Judah by their armies: and the ruler of the sons of Judah was Nahshon, son of Amminadab.

Phinehas is all the more not a full fledged Levite, but a descendant of Levi AND OF JUDAH!!! This would make Nahshon as Phinehas' great uncle, and it is a very good reason why Phinehas had the privilege to kill Zimri and Cozbi, because he bears the JUDAIC HERITAGE, which could be claimed as a warrior heritage not of the Priestly line. In many ways, that is why 
hwhy gave him a pass, because part of his heritage was of a NON-LEVITE heritage. I have no doubt that Phinehas' family's was one of many examples of intertribal heritages, and was most likely common practice at the time for the Israeletes when they dwelled in Egypt, before hwhy separated the Levites to be Priests.

This is a pedigree chart of Phinehas, which in my opinion, is the correct pedigree.

Pedigree


This heritage is fulfilled in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant) which I have well established, and Yeshua became the fulfillment to be the descendant of Levi, and as a descendent of Phinehas, as well as of Judah, by his biological mother Mary.

This an abridged pedigree of Yeshua in connection with Phinehas' pedigree

Rico Cortes- Messiah, Priest of War.pdf



In verse twelve of this week's Torah portion, hwhy gave Phinehas His Covenant of Peace. The word "peace" in Hebrew is "shalom", which in the Hebrew is "shalom" (Mwls), but in the Hebrew text, the Vav in the Hebrew word has a "Broken Vav"

Shalom


Rico Cortes of Wisdom in Torah Ministries has a good teaching on the Broken Vav. It is on his 2010-2011 Torah portion Phinehas teaching. He says that the Broken Vav relates to the facts that there is no Temple and no High Priest on earth.  Hence, the Heavens-Earth connection to the Temple is broken. Also, the Broken Vav will not be reconnected until Yeshua comes back as "the Warrior King". Since Phinehas is also the High Priest, the Temple and the true High Priest will restore the Heavens-Earth connection, thus reconnecting the Broken Vav and make the Vav whole. It is clear that Yeshua said in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.

I will add, that while Yeshua is still in Heaven, there will be no peace for the people on the earth as a whole, but a sword, because Yeshua is only after "individual" salvation, and not for "wordly corporate" salvation for the world. The manifestation of "the Broken Vav" will be resolved when Yeshua returns to the earth to bring "True Peace" for the entire earth.

Also in verse twelve of this week's Torah portion, 
hwhy gave to Phinehas and his descendants "The Covenant of Peace". Mark Biltz noted that an Aleph-Tav is placed in front of this phrase (Mark beat me to it). This is so, because hwhy was emphasizing the preparation of the way for Yeshua, the Messiah, who was a descendant of Aaron through Phinehas, ia His mother, Mary, who was a descendant of the line of Aaron, also cousin to Elizabeth of the line of Aaron, to be "the Covenant of Peace".

I have another perspective regarding the Broken Vav. It relates to the fact that Phinehas' grandfather, Levi, who had a alliance with Simeon as mentioned earlier. Phinehas, who represented the tribe of Levi, killed Zimri, who represented the tribe of Simeon, whom their ancestral brothers had a oneness. This Broken Vav could also represent the act that what Phinehas did to Zimri caused their ancestral "tribal oneness" to be "broken". Also, the letter Vav is in Levi's name "Leyvee" (
ywl), and it could mean that the act of Phinehas redeemed his ancestor Levi by "breaking" his ancestral alliance ties to the Simeonite tribe.



Looking at the word CONSPIRACY

In verse eighteen, the Hebrew word for conspiracy is "neh-kehl"- Nun, Kaph, Lamed (
lkn). It is from Strong's Concordance number 5231, and its definition

"From H5230; deceit: - wile".

from 5230 "nah-kahl"
(lkn), and its definition

"A primitive root; to defraud, that is, act treacherously: - beguile, conspire, deceiver, deal subtilly".

In last week's Torah portion of Balak, I sourced Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries in his scripture reference of Revelation regarding the assembly of Pergamos

Revelation 2:12 And to the angel of the assembly in Pergamos write; These things saith He which hath the sharp sword with two edges; 13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where HaSatan's seat is: and thou holdest fast My Name, and hast not denied My Faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where HaSatan dwelleth. 14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the Sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. 5 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. 16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of My Mouth. 17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the assemblies; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

Looking at the definition of Nicolatian

NICOLAITAN

The Greek word for Nicolaitans is "nikolah-ee-tace" (Nixolaitej). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3531, and its definition

"From G3532; a Nicolaite, that is, adherent of Nicolaus: - Nicolaitane".

from 3532 "nikola-os" (Nixolaoj), and its definition

"From G3534 and G2992; victorious over the people; Nicolaus, a heretic: - Nicolaus".

Nico

The Greek word Nicos (
nixoj) is from Strong's concordance number 3534, and its definition

"From G3529; a conquest (concretely), that is, (by implication) triumph: - victory".

from 3529 "neekae" (nixh), and its definition

"Apparently a primary word; conquest (abstractly), that is, (figuratively) the means of success: - victory".


L
aitan

The Greek word "laos" (
laoj), and its definition

"Apparently a primary word; a people (in general; thus differing from G1218, which denotes one’s own populace): - people".

This is where we get the terms "Lay People" and "Layman", who are common believers, or common workers who are not of professional knowledge.

The Nickolaitans were those who were conquering the people, but in an act of "conspiracy". This is what Balaam "conspired" with Balak to overcome the Israelites "within" their Assembly through defiling themselves by their acts of fornication with the Moabite women and their pagan elohim. I mentioned in last week's Torah portion that some of the people in the assembly in Pergamos would potentially do the same thing, and if they don't, they would do what Balak and Balaam conspired against the Israelites in their time.

Spiritually, I have no doubt that in our walk with our Heavenly Father, when we get attacked by the enemies, that these are demonic acts to defeat us as believers from "within", and an example of this is that Saint Nicholas has now become part of our culture. This is an act of what Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries says "mixing the Holy with the profane".


Regarding the Covenant of Peace in verse twelve of this week's Torah portion, 
hwhy was judging the shepherds of Israel for not being proper shepherds of the men taking the best and killing the sheep, as well as other things against them. Then hwhy said this in the book of the Prophet Ezekiel

Ezekiel 34:22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle. 23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even ta My servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd. 24 And I hwhy will be their Elohim, and My servant David a prince among them; I hwhy have spoken it. 25 And I will make with them a Covenant of Peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

Phinehas and his descendants bore the Covenant of Peace, in relation to what I noted earlier, Yeshua is the descendent of Phinehas, as well as bearing the inheritance of that Covenant of Peace, this would also be Yeshua's fulfillemnt as "the One Shepherd" who is "the Covenantor of Peace".



In the last segment of this week's Torah chapter, Moses was instructing the Israelites to destroy those who were involved with the conspiracy. This ties in with the apostle John declaring to the assembly of Pergamos to proactively get rid of those people or to help them get rid of their Nikolaitanish, Balaamite scheme.




A thought comes to me that if one looks at this Greek word, "Nicolaitan" and and its definitions, it is the same word where we get "Saint Nicholas", also known as "Santa Claus". According to sources, Saint Nicholas was an image based on the pagan Greek god Zeus, who was a pagan elohim of control. This information excerpt is from the www.greek Mythology.com website regarding the pagan god Zeus:

"Zeus, the presiding deity of the universe, ruler of the skies and the earth, was regarded by the Greeks as the god of all natural phenomena on the sky; the personification of the laws of nature; the ruler of the state; and finally, the father of gods and men".

52 And
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 53 To these, the land, she shall be divided on an inheritance on the number of names. 54 To the many, you shall magnify his inheritance, and to the few, you shall diminish his inheritance: by the mouth of his count, a man shall be given his inheritance. 55 Only ta-the land shall be divided on the lot: they shall inherit by the names of the tribes of their fathers. 56 Upon the mouth of the lot, she shall be divided of his inheritance between many to few.

63 These are the ones counted of Moses and Eleazar, the Priest, who counted
ta-the Sons of Israel in the plains of Moab upon Jordan-Jericho. 64 And a man was not among these from the counting of Moses and Aaron, the Priest, who counted ta-the Sons of Israel in the Wilderness of Sinai. 65 For hwhy said to them, Dying, they shall die in the wilderness, and shall not remain a man from them, for but Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, son of Nun.

The only tribal camp where all three tribes in the same camp decreased was the southern camp, which consists of the tribes of Reuben, Simeon and Gad. Simon's tribe had the most difference in all of the tribes, as well as the most losses, and the tribe with the least loss was Dan.

Most of Simeon's tribal loss was most probable due to that one incident noted in the Torah portion of Khukath, in the book of Numbers, when they went in unto the Midianite women, bowed down to their pagan elohim, and ate the food sacrificed to their elohim. The loss of that account was 24,000 men. As one can see, relating to the Midianite women incident, it is most probable that the majority of them, if not all of them, were of the tribe of "Simeon", and resulted in that huge difference of a loss in Simeon's tribe between the first enumeration and the second enumeration of over 37,000 men.

Looking at the Israelite encampment, one can see Simeon's location at the Camp


Israelite camp


Looking at the encampment map, the tribe of Simeon is located in the south camp, the same camp in which tribe of Reuben and Korah of the Kohathites are also located. Does this sound like a pattern to you?. This tells us that the ones who rebelled were mostly of the southern camp. Based on the location of Simeon, it was most probable that the Midianite women were located in the southern end of the Camp, otherwise, the Simeonite camp would not have noticed.

This is not the first time of rebellion in the southern camp. Looking of the account of Korah, noted in the Torah portion of Korakh, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 16:1 And Korah, son of Izhar, son of Kohath, son of Levi, and Dathan and Abiram, sons of Eliab, and On, son of Peleth, sons of Reuben, gathered: 2 and they arose, and men, fifty and two hundred rulers of the Congregation, called out, men of name, from the Sons of Israel, to the face of Moses: 3 And they assembled against Moses and against Aaron, and they said to them, Much is to yourself, for all the Congregation, all of them are Holy, and hwhy is in their midst: and why do you lift up above the Assembly of hwhy?

Mark Blitz of El Shaddai Ministries revealed this point. If you look at the location of the encampment of the tribes around the Ten of Appointment, you will notice that Korah's camp of the tribe of Levi, plus Dathan, Abiram and On's camp of the tribe of Reuben were located on the right (south) side of the Tent of Meeting. They are shown in red and Yellow.

Isaelite Camp



The other account is noted in the Torah portion of Matoth, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 32:1 And were many livestock to the sons of Reuben and to the sons of Gad, numerously many: and they saw ta-the land of Jazer, and ta-the land of Gilead, and behold, the place was a place for livestock; 2 And came the sons of Gad and the sons of Reuben, and they spoke to Moses, and to Eleazar, the Priest, and to the Rulers of the Congregation, to say, 3 Ataroth, and Dibon, and Jazer, and Nimrah, and Heshbon, and Elealeh, and Shebam, and Nebo, and Beon, 4 the land which hwhy had struck to the face of the Congregation of Israel, she is a land for livestock, and to your servants is livestock: 5 And they said, if we have found grace in your eyes, shall be given ta-this land to your servants for a possession, not do you make us pass over ta-the Jordan. 6 And Moses said to the sons of Gad and to the sons of Reuben, The brothers of you, shall they go to the war, and you, you shall dwell here? 7 And to why you discourage ta-the heart of the Sons of Israel from going over to the land which hwhy has given to them? 8 Thus did your fathers, in my sending them from Kadesh-Barnea to see ta-the land. 9 And they went up unto the valley of Eshcol, and they saw ta-the land, and they discouraged ta-the heart of the Sons of Israel, by not to go to the land which hwhy had given to them. 10 And the Anger of hwhy glowed in that day, and swore, to say, 11 If not they shall see, the men that are ascending from Egypt, from a son of twenty years and upward, ta the ground which I swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob; for they are not fully after me: 12 except Caleb, son of Jephunneh, the Kenezite, and Joshua, son of Nun: for they were fully after hwhy. 13 And the Anger of hwhy glowed against Israel, and wandered them in the wilderness forty years, until ceased all the generation, that did the evil in the eyes of hwhy. 14 And, behold, you have risen up instead of your fathers, an increase of sinful men, to augment still the Fierce Anger of hwhy toward Israel. 15 For if you turn from following him, and yet again leave him in the wilderness; and you shall cause destruction to all this People.

The tribes of Rebuen and Gad almost destroyed the Israelites for not going in with the rest of their brothers in the promised land. Looking at the chart of the Camp, showing the locations of the tribes of Reuben and Gad

Israel Camp

If one compares to all these three accounts and the tribal locations of each of the Peoples above, they are all located on the right (south) camp area. It is clear, in the Hebraic perspective, that the location, from the basis of the context of the Tent of Appointment, is called the "right side", because the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment is located on the east side, or in Hebriac terms the "rising side". The purpose of bringing these out, is that these three accounts regarding these certain tribes were the result of HaSatan attacking these peoples from the right (south) camp, or what is Hebraically called the "right hand" of the Tent of Appointment, by using these certain Peoples as vessels of HaSatan to rebel against hwhy. As Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries noted that the enemy cannot attack from the outside, but is attacking from "within" the Camp. In other words, in this case, HaSatan was attacking the "right hand" of the Camp, which is considered the "strong hand", because, Hebraically speaking, the right hand is the strong hand. HaSatan was trying to destroy the "strong hand" of the Camp in order to dramatically weaken the Camp. HaSatan was also trying to symbolically destroy "the future Son of the Right Hand", who is Yeshua, because Yeshua represents the Tent of Appointment manifested in the flesh. This was HaSatan's way back then, to try to destroy the future coming of Yeshua, the Son of the Right Hand, because if HaSatan succeeded, the Israelites would have not gone into the promised land and would have died in the wilderness. HaSatan would have also prevented Yeshua, the Son of the Right Hand, to come to the earth in a future time and redeem all the tribes of Israel as well as the rest of the world. This is what Yeshua said in the Gospel of John

Matthew 26:64 Yeshua saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of Man sitting on the Right Hand of Power, and coming in the clouds of the heavens.

Yeshua is what HaSatan tried to destroy from being our salvation, as well as our future King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

We as believers in the Messiah have "the Right Hand" in our lives, and HaSatan.

This is what the apostle Paul noted in
his letter to the assembly in Ephesus

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole Armour of hwhy, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of hwhy: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

We are not dealing with fleshly matters spiriritual matters. What we as believers in Yeshua need to do is to pray against the spirit of Korah, and to break that spirit in Yeshua's Name, who is our Right Hand.




 The only tribal camp where all three tribes in the same camp increased was the eastern camp: Judah, Issachar and Zebulun.


Notice that Ephraim and Manasseh were switched in the second enumeration compared to the first enumeration in chapter one. In the first enumeration, Ephraim had more men than Manasseh, but in the second enumeration, Manasseh had more men than Ephraim.


Israel's total numbers of men twenty and up able to go to war were comparable to the amount of deaths in the Civil War, estimated at 620,000.


Also in this week's Torah portion passage, the names of the families were noted in the second enumeration. They were first noted by their names, and then the family tribes were called by their patriarch's names that were mentioned. For example: One patriarch's name of the tribe of Benjamin is Ashbel and the family tribal name is called the Ashbelites. In the Hebrew, the family tribal name includes a yod after their name, so in the Hebrew it is "Ashbeli".



In the Hebrew text, there are some names between the patriarch's names and their family tribal titles could be slightly different. Of an extreme example, one patriarch name was of the tribe of Benjamin. One name in the Hebrew was "Sh'phupham", but their family tribal name that was used is "Shuphami"- the other "ph" is missing from his name.

There was one name exception to the rule: It was in the tribe of Asher. The patriarch's name in the Hebrew was "Yimnah", and the patriarch's tribal title was also "Yimnah", no Yod at the end of the name. His name means "prosperity" as well as "right, right handed". Take the definitions of Asher's name and Yimnah's name, and it makes the phrase, "Blessed be the right handed".


The tribe of Benjamin has two names, Ard and Naaman. in the tribal naming in the Hebrew text, Ard should have been named again along with Naaman, but he was not. I do not know why this is so.



In verse ten of this week's Torah portion passage, as I mentioned in the Torah portion of Korah, Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that the Prophet Samuel was a descendant of Korah, and Samuel's grandson, Heman, was singing in the Priestly music department contemporaray with Asaph, who wrote some of King David's Psalms.

Verses fifty two through fifty six

52 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 53 To these, the land, she shall be divided on an inheritance on the number of names. 54 To the many, you shall magnify his inheritance, and to the few, you shall diminish his inheritance: by the mouth of his count, a man shall be given his inheritance. 55 Only ta-the land shall be divided on the lot: they shall inherit by the names of the tribes of their fathers. 56 Upon the mouth of the lot, she shall be divided of his inheritance between many to few.

hwhy commanded Moses to say to the Israelites that when they enter into the land they are to divide, by the mouth of the lot, the land by the size of each tribe: the larger the tribe, the larger the land, and the smaller the tribe, the smaller the land.

This is a map that shows how they settled in the land

12 Tribes


There was no mentioning that the amount of souls for each tribe included women, children, and elderly. It was most likely only related to the men. The amount of men able to go to war should give us an idea the size of the amount of people in each tribes. If one compared the map above of their land sizes to the amount of the men, they obviously did not follow the word of 
hwhy. Dan, Zebulun and Issachar had over 60,000 men, and yet, the size of their lands were much smaller than Menasseh's, which was about as large, if not larger, than Judah's land. The tribe of Menasseh did not have the largest amount of people of all the tribes of Israel. The only exception to this alotment was in verse sixty two in this week's Torah portion that the tribe of Levi was not part of the enumeration, because it was based in what their founding father, Jacob, said to their patriarch, Levi, in the Torah portion of Va-Y'khi, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 49:5 Simeon and Levi, brothers; vessels of violence from their stabbings. 6 My soul, do you not enter in their counsel; My liver, do you not unite in their assembly: for they killed a man in their anger, and in their pleasure they castrated an ox. 7 Cursed be their anger, for was fierce; and their wrath, for was cruel: I will divide them in Jacob, and I will scatter them in Israel.

and that 
hwhy said that He was their inheritance, noted in the Torah portion of , in the book of Korakh, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 18:20 And hwhy spoke to Aaron, You shall have no inheritance in thier land, and shall not be any portion for you in their midst: I am your Portion and your Inheritance in the midst of the Sons of Israel. 21 And behold, I have given to the sons of Levi all the tithes in Israel for an inheritance, of an exchange of their service which they that serve ta-the Service of the Tent of Appointment.

In this week's Torah portion passage, It shows the generations of the tribe of Levi. His sons were Gershon, Kohath and Merari, and in verse fifty eight, it is mentioned that Jochobed was their sister. Kohath had a son named Amram, and Amram married his aunt, Jochebed, who was most likely similar in age as he was. They were the parents of Moses, Aaron and Miriam. In other words, Moses was Levi's granddaughter via Jochebed, as well as Levi's great-grandson, via Amram.

We do not know if Levi was alive when Moses was born, but configuring, it was at least one hundred years after Jacob and his family's migrated to Egypt when Levi died.



In verse fifty nine of this week's Torah portion passage, this is how the order of Moses' family was given

59 ...and she birthed to Amram ta-Aaron and ta-Moses, and ta Miriam their sister.

The problem is that Miriam was the eldest, because she was of age that she would have been able to travel far to watch her baby brother travel down the Nile. Also we know that Aaron is three years older than Moses. So by order it should be Miriam, Aaron and Moses. Why did 
hwhy make Moses write the birth order out of sequence? I don't have an answer to that at this time.



Verses sixty three through sixty five

63 These are the ones counted of Moses and Eleazar, the Priest, who counted ta-the Sons of Israel in the plains of Moab upon Jordan-Jericho. 64 And a man was not among these from the counting of Moses and Aaron, the Priest, who counted ta-the Sons of Israel in the Wilderness of Sinai. 65 For hwhy said to them, Dying, they shall die in the wilderness, and shall not remain a man from them, for but Caleb, son of Jephunneh, and Joshua, son of Nun.

Calculating, this would be the Israelites' fortieth year in their journey by the time all those of the previous generation from twenty years and upward died, and we know that it was in the fortieth year, in the first day of the fifth month of Av when Eleazar's father, Aaron, died on Mount Hor, noted in the Torah portion of Masei, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 33:38 And Aaron, the Priest, ascended to Mount of the Hor upon the mouth of hwhy, and died there, in the fortieth year of the outgoing of the Sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, in the fifth month, in the one [first] of the month. 39 And Aaron was a son of three and twenty and a hundred years in his death on Mount of the Hor.

This new enumeration reveals to us that this is a completely different generation.







CHAPTER 27

Numbers 27:1-23

Num 27:1 And the daughters of Zelophehad, son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh, of the family of Manasseh, son of Joseph, they came: and these are the names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 2 And they stood to the face of Moses, and to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of the Rulers and all of the Congregation, at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, to say, 3 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the midst of the Congregation that met upon
hwhy in the congregation of Korah; but died in his sin, and there were no sons. 4 To why should the name of our father be removed from the midst of his family, for is not to him a son? Give to us a possession in the midst of the brothers of our father.

5 And Moses brought
ta-their cause to the Face of hwhy. 6 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 7 Thus speaks the daughters of Zelophehad: Giving, you shall give to them a possession of an inheritance in the midst of the brothers of their father; and you shall pass over ta-the inheritance of their father to them. 8 And you shall speak to the Sons of Israel, to say, If a man shall die, and has not a son to him, And you shall pass over ta-his inheritance to his daughter. 9 And if has not a daughter to him, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to his brother. 10 And if has not to him brothers, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to the brothers of his father. 11 And if have no brothers to his father, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to his relative that are near to him from his family, and shall possess her: and she shall be to the Sons of Israel for a Statute of Judgment, as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

12 And 
hwhy said to Moses, Ascend to this mountain of the Abarim, and see ta-the land which I have given to the Sons of Israel. 13 And of you seeing her, and you shall be gathered to your People, also you, as which was gathered Aaron, your brother. 14 As which you rebelled against My Mouth in the Wilderness of Zin, in the strife of the Congregation, to sanctify Me on the waters to their eyes: they were the waters of Meribah in Kadesh, in the Wilderness of Zin.

15 And Moses spoke to 
hwhy, to say, 16 hwhy, the Elohim of the spirits of all flesh, shall appoint a man upon the Congregation, 17 which shall go out to their faces, and who shall come to their faces, and who shall make them go, and who shall make them come; and the Congregation of hwhy, she shall not be as sheep whom has not a shepherd to them. 18 And hwhy said to Moses, Take for you ta-Joshua, son of Nun, a man whom has the spirit in him, and you shall put ta-your hand upon him; 19 And you shall make him stand to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of all of the Congregation; and you shall appoint him to their eyes, 20 and you shall lay your honor upon him, by that, all of the Congregation of the Sons of Israel, they shall hearken. 21 And shall stand to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and shall inquire for him on the judgment of the Urim toward the Face of hwhy: upon his mouth they shall go, and upon his mouth they shall come, he and all of the Sons of Israel, he and all of the Congregation. 22 And Moses did as which hwhy commanded him: and took ta-Joshua, and stood him to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of all of the Congregation: 23 And laid ta-his hands upon him, and appointed him, as which hwhy spoke by the hand of Moses.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verses one through eleven

1 And the daughters of Zelophehad, son of Hepher, son of Gilead, son of Machir, son of Manasseh, of the family of Manasseh, son of Joseph, they came: and these are the names of his daughters; Mahlah, Noah, and Hoglah, and Milcah, and Tirzah. 2 And they stood to the face of Moses, and to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of the Rulers and all of the Congregation, at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment, to say, 3 Our father died in the wilderness, and he was not in the midst of the Congregation that met upon hwhy in the congregation of Korah; but died in his sin, and there were no sons. 4 To why should the name of our father be removed from the midst of his family, for is not to him a son? Give to us a possession in the midst of the brothers of our father.

5 And Moses brought
ta-their cause to the Face of hwhy. 6 And hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 7 Thus speaks the daughters of Zelophehad: Giving, you shall give to them a possession of an inheritance in the midst of the brothers of their father; and you shall pass over ta-the inheritance of their father to them. 8 And you shall speak to the Sons of Israel, to say, If a man shall die, and has not a son to him, And you shall pass over ta-his inheritance to his daughter. 9 And if has not a daughter to him, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to his brother. 10 And if has not to him brothers, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to the brothers of his father. 11 And if have no brothers to his father, and you shall give ta-his inheritance to his relative that are near to him from his family, and shall possess her: and she shall be to the Sons of Israel for a Statute of Judgment, as which hwhy commanded ta-Moses.

This account is very rare, and it was the earliest case when women had any means to plea their case for the right to own property. This showed that 
hwhy cared about women's issues.

This commandment has been practiced throughout Great Britain's history as well, that if a nobleman, or noblewoman, or royalty had an heiress and/or the father or mother who ruled died without sons, the daughter claimed to be heirdom to the title. For example, the first Duke of Marlborough had a daughter, and he died without sons. His daughter became the second Duchess of Marlborough. Winston Churchill was a descendent of this Duchess. Also, if anyone is familiar with Shakespeare's play "Henry V", the monks made a case to King Henry regarding his right to the French duchies based on "Salic Law" in which one being of a French female heir claimed the right to the duchy. Henry V was a descendant of one the French female heiresses. This was the result in the battle of Agincourt. These are accounts were true. Other noted examples are: King Henry VIII's daughter, Queen Elizabeth I; King William IV's closest niece, Queen Victoria, because King William IV had no heir, which applies in this week's Torah portion passage; King George VI's daughter, Queen Elizabeth II.

According to Yair Davidiy of Hebrew Nations and Brit Am, the majority of the people in Great Britain, Ireland, and Western Europe are descended from the Israelites, mostly of the Ten Northern Tribes who were exiled to Assyria around 722 BC. The people in Great Britain revealed their Israelite roots through their Salic Law.

Another interesting part of this segment was that the daughters said to Moses that their father did not die with Korah's group with the 250 people, but in his own sins. They didn't say what it was, either Zelophehad was one of the 14,700 that died by the plague whom Moses made Aaron make an offering from the censer with fire and incense to 
hwhy to run out to the People to stop the plague. But ultimately he was most likely one of the People twenty years old and up who had to die in the wilderness.

In verse five, Moses pleads the daughters' cause to 
hwhy. The Hebrew word for cause is "meesh-pah-tahn- Mem, Shin, Peh, Tet, Nun Sophit (Njpsm). It is literally interpreted "their judgment" in the third person feminine plural, because it relates to the daughters of Zelophehad. It doesn't show it in the English, but in the Hebrew text, the Nun in mishpatan is enlarged

Mishpatan


Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries in his July 2004 "Yavoh" magazine in the article, "The Jots and Tittles of Moses", noted the enlarged Nun:

"The letter nun means life (the quickening of life). This letter was used previously by Moses in presenting the 13 attributes of God's mercy in Exo 34:7. However, this is a nun sofit. It is at the end of the word and is drawn as a sofit to indicate that. The context of this passage is about the daughters of Manasses who had no male counterpart to receive the tribal inheritance. They appealed to Moses and he made the case for inheritance. As a result, their inheritance was assured. Going back to Exo 34:7, the enlarged nun there awas the tenth atrtribute of God. The attribute describes how God preserves our heritage and inheritance (the mercy extended to our fathers). Therfore the enlarged nun here speaaks to the inheritance of our fathers, our heritage, being preserved even when a physical recipient is missing in the lineage".

Also, the enlarged Nun refers to the "feminine" gender. In other words, this is one of the earliest Biblical accounts of women's issues in ancient history that was enforced, and it showed that women, when they do things righteously, do have equal rights in 
hwhy's eyes.


I also think that in my opinion it was a prophetic warning for women who could use their "Enlarged Nun" wrongly, for worldly purposes, and could create destruction to the nation. In our case today in the United States, since the 1960's, the women's movement, since the removal of the Bible and prayer in schools in 1962, rose up in unrighteousness and have been rising in power ever since.
And now, the United States for the first time in its history almost have a woman in the White House, but it would have been one of the world and not for righteousness. There are some things I do agree with them, like being against spousal abuse. Looking at the circumstances today, they have now more power than anytime in human history, although, not all of it is bad. I commend those who are doing the right things. But the majority in this nation is starting to turn its morality and ethicality upside down and backwards: There are more single mothers without husbands. There are programs that are dominated with women agendas in the wrong means. Looking at the account regarding Khavah (Eve), noted in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 3:1 And the serpent was subtle from every beast of the field which hwhy Elohim made, and said to the woman, For Elohim said, Only you shall not eat from every tree of the garden? 2 And the woman, she said to the serpent, From the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat: 3 and from the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim said, You shall not eat him, and you shall not touch on him, lest you die. 4 And the serpent said to the woman, Dying, you shall not die: 5 for Elohim knows, that in the day you eat from him, and your eyes, they shall be opened, and you shall be as Elohim, knowing good and evil. 6 And the woman saw for the tree was good for food, and for he was pleasant to the eyes, and the tree was desireable to make one wise: and she took from his fruit, and she ate, and she gave also to her husband with her; and ate.

When Khavah ate of the fruit, she submitted to the serpent and became the "dominant" part of the body over her husband, Adam, and as it says on the basis in the book of the Prophet Isaiah

Isaiah 46:10 Declaring the end from the beginning,...

There are now "modern Khavahs" in today's society, who have submitted to HaSatan, and a female presidential candidate is one of them, and could have succeeded if it wasn't for the prayers of the saints.

The Enlarged Nun is a notification that it could be taken either way, whether for righteous means or for unrighteous means. It is a delicate matter to be taken very carefully, as well as prayerfully, because for those who do things their own way, do not go to the Heavenly Father for help, or for advice, or for discernment, or for wisdom, or for answers, etc., and instead do things in their own strength.



In verses eight through eleven in this week's Torah portion passage, the Aleph-Tavs were used four times in the same phrase, "his inheritance". In my humble opinion, this is play on the fact that "his inheritance" could refer to "His inheritance" which is 
hwhy's inheritance, and in which will be Yeshua's inheritance in the end of days.



These are the names of the daughters and their ancestors and their meanings
(Note: All of Strong's Concordance references are noted by "S"):

Zelophehad (In Hebrew "Ts'laph-khahd" (hlgx) S6765): Protection (or shadow) of terror (or dread) (source: "The Hebrew-Greek Key Study Bible")
Hepher
(In Hebrew "Khey-phehr" (rpx) S2660): Search, seek, shame, reproach
Gilead
(In Hebrew "Geel-ahd" (delg) S1568): Heap of testimony
Machir
(In Hebrew "Mah-kheer" (rykm) S4353): Salesman, sold, surrender
Menasseh
(In Hebrew "M'nah-sheh" (hsnm) S4519): Forget
Joseph
(In Hebrew "Yoh-seyph" (Powy) S3130): Add, increase, gather

Putting the definitions of their names together, it makes a story:

"One who is a shadow of terror will become a shame at the heap of testimony, who was sold, and who would have been forgotten, but became a gatherer"

This phrase reveal to us that this is Yeshua was a shadow of dread or terror to the Jewish leaders, and became a shame for the People at the heap of testimony, at the Mount of Olives, who was sold by Judas Iscariot for thirty pieces of silver, who could have been forgotten by His crucifixion and death, but then was resurrected and has been gathering people to Himself for these past two thousand years.


These are the names and definitions of each of the daughters of Zelophehad
(Note: All of Strong's Concordance references are noted by "S"):

Mahlah (In Hebrew "Makh-lah" (hlxm) S4244): Sickness, grieve, weak, afflicted
Noah
(In Hebrew "Noh-ah" (hen) S5270): Move, shake, scatter
Hoglah
(In Hebrew "Khohg-lah" (hlgx) S2295): Partridge
Milcah
(In Hebrew "Meel-kah" (hklm) S4435): Queen
Tirzah
(In Hebrew "Teer-tsah" (hurt) S8656): Pleasing, delight, satisfied, approved

Putting the definitions of their names together, it makes a story:

"One who was afflicted came those who were scattered like a partridge, to become for Him a queen that is delightful, pleasing and approved"

This is Yeshua who was afflicted at the cross at the Mount of Olives, and is looking for the Israelite Bride who were scattered like a partridge, which include the lost Ten Northern Tribes of Israel, to become for Himself a Queen who is delightful, pleasing and approved that follow His Word.



Verses fifteen through twenty three

15 And Moses spoke to hwhy, to say, 16 hwhy, the Elohim of the spirits of all flesh, shall appoint a man upon the Congregation, 17 which shall go out to their faces, and who shall come to their faces, and who shall make them go, and who shall make them come; and the Congregation of hwhy, she shall not be as sheep whom has not a shepherd to them. 18 And hwhy said to Moses, Take for you ta-Joshua, son of Nun, a man whom has the spirit in him, and you shall put ta-your hand upon him; 19 And you shall make him stand to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of all of the Congregation; and you shall appoint him to their eyes, 20 and you shall lay your honor upon him, by that, all of the Congregation of the Sons of Israel, they shall hearken. 21 And shall stand to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and shall inquire for him on the judgment of the Urim toward the Face of hwhy: upon his mouth they shall go, and upon his mouth they shall come, he and all of the Sons of Israel, he and all of the Congregation. 22 And Moses did as which hwhy commanded him: and took ta-Joshua, and stood him to the face of Eleazar, the Priest, and to the face of all of the Congregation: 23 And laid ta-his hands upon him, and appointed him, as which hwhy spoke by the hand of Moses.

In verse fifteen, Moses asked
hwhy who was going take his place. As he was speaking to Him, Moses called  hwhy "hwhy, Elohim of the spirits of all flesh". This is based in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis, when hwhy blew into Adam's nostrils and put His Spirit in him. If we as humans do not have a spirit, we would not be alive today. There are phrases used in different attire, like "The Spirit of 76", and "Team Spirit" and "School Spirit". These slogans are used, because it comes from the spirit of man. Man can live without the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), but they cannot get to Heaven or have a relationship with the Heavenly Father without the Spirit of Elohim through His Son, Yeshua.

Indirectly related, the apostle Joel also stated that 
hwhy will put His Spirit on all flesh, as noted in his book

Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh;...



In verse seventeen in this week's Torah portion passage, Moses also said to 
hwhy that they need someone to lead them out and bring them in, so that they would be not like sheep without a shepherd. hwhy replied in verse nineteen that Joshua would be his successor. Moses was to take Joshua and put him before Eleazar, the High Priest, and unto the Congregation, and he was to put his dignity on him so that the People would hear him. Also Joshua was to inquire Eleazar "by the judgment of the Urim toward the Face of hwhy". Notice hwhy did not say "of the Urim and of the Thummim". Why is that? This is the definition for Urim

Looking at the word URIM

The Hebrew word for urim is "oo-reem"- Aleph, Vav, Resh, Yod, Mem Sophit (
Myrwa). It is from Strong's Concordance number 224, and its definition

Plural of H217; lights; Urim, the oracular brilliancy of the figures in the high priest’s breastplate: - Urim.

from 217 "oor" (
rwa), and its definition

From H215; flame, hence (in the plural) the East (as being the region of light): - fire, light. See also H224.


from 215 "ohr"
(rwa), and its definition

A primitive root; to be (causatively make) luminous (literally and metaphorically): - X break of day, glorious, kindle, (be, en-, give, show) light (-en, -ened), set on fire, shine.

It is noted to be a "white" stone, and the Thummim- which means "perfect"- is a "dark" stone. It is most likely 
hwhy wanted the Urim used, because they need Urim, the "light", to lead them while they were conquering the land. This was a type and shadow of Yeshua becoming our Light (our "Ohr") from the Umim, and Yeshua was to be the leader of the People in the land when He started His Ministry. Today, Yeshua leads us in our walk in the land we are in to be His Light so that we can be "the light of the world", as Yeshua notd in the Gospels of John and Matthew

John 8:12 Then spake Yeshua again unto them, saying, I am the light [Ohr] of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the Light of Life.

Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light [Urim] of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.



Looking at the following words:

JOSHUA

The Hebrew name of Joshua is "Y'hoh-shoo-ah"- Yod, Heh, Vav, Shin, Vav, Ayin (
ewswhy). It is from Strong's Concordance number 3091, and its definition

From H3068 and H3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (that is, Joshua), the Jewish leader: - Jehoshua, Jehoshuah, Joshua. Compare H1954, H3442.

Jo

from 3068 "Y'hoh-vah" [or "Y'hoh-wah"] (
hwhy), and its definition

From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.


from 1961 "hah-yah" (
hyh), and its definition

A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.

Shua

from 3467 "yah-shah" (
esy), and its definition

A primitive root; properly to be open, wide or free, that is, (by implication) to be safe; causatively to free or succor: -  X at all, avenging, defend, deliver (-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save (-iour), get victory.

Joshua means "Yehowah Saves"


NUN

The Hebrew word for Nun is "noon"- Nun, Vav, Nun Sophit (
Nwn) is from Strong's Concordance number 5126, and its definition

From H5125; perpetuity; Nun or Non, the father of Joshua: - Non, Nun.

from 5125 "noon"
(Nwn), and its definition

A primitive root; to resprout, that is, propagate by shoots; figuratively, to be perpetual: - be continued.


Both names combined means "Yehowah Saves in Perpetuity (or Forever)".

Also, the Paleo-Hebrew picture for the letter Nun is a "fish", in connecting this, it is saying "Y'howah Saves the Fish of Men". Yeshua Himself, whose name means "Salvation" told Peter and his brother Andrew, both fishermen in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 4:18 And Yeshua, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. 19 And He saith unto them, Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men. 20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed Him.

Joshua was a shadow of Yeshua becoming our Light (our "Urim"), and Yeshua was to be the leader of the people in the land when He started His ministry. Today, Yeshua leads us in our walk in the land we are in.








CHAPTER 28

Numbers 28:1-31

Num 28:1 And 
hwhy spoke to Moses, to say, 2 Command ta-the Sons of Israel, and you shall say to them, ta-My Karban Offering, of My Bread Offering, of My Fire Offering, of My pleasant scent, you shall keep to bring to Me in His Appointed Time.

3 And you shall say to them, This is the Fire Offering which you shall bring to hwhy; two perfect lambs of sons of a year for the Daily Continual Elevation Offering. 4 You shall do ta-the one lamb in the breaking (morning), and you shall do ta the second lamb between the mixing periods; 5 and a tenth of the ephah of flour for a Food (Grain) Offering, in mixing in a fourth of the hin of beaten oil. 6 A Continual Elevation Offering that was done in Mount Sinai, for a pleasant scent of a Fire Offering to hwhy, 7 and his Drink Offering shall be a fourth of the hin for the one lamb: in the Sanctuary shall be the pouring of the strong Drink Offering to hwhy. 8 And you shall do ta the second lamb between the mixing periods: as the Food (Grain) Offering of the morning, and his Drink Offering, you shall do of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

9 And on the day of the Shabbath day shall be two perfect lambs of sons of a year, and two tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil, and his Drink Offering: 10 The Elevation Offering of the Shabbath, on his Shabbath, upon the Continual Elevation Offering, and her Drink Offering.

11 And in the head of your months, you shall bring an Elevation Offering to hwhy; two bullocks of sons of a herd, and one ram, seven perfect lambs of sons of a year; 12 and three tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil for one bullock; and two tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil for the one ram; 13 and a tenth, a tenth, of flour of a Food Offering mixed in the oil for the one lamb; of an Elevation Offering of a pleasant scent of a Fire Offering to hwhy, 14 and their Drink Offering of wine shall be a half of the hin to the bullock, and a third of the hin for the ram, and a fourth of the hin for the lamb. This is the Elevation Offering of the month, in his month, for the months of the year. 15 And one kid of the goats for a Sin Offering to hwhy upon doing the Continual Elevation Offering, and his Drink Offering.

16 And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, is the Passover to hwhy.

17 And on the fifteenth day of this month is a feast: seven days of unleavened bread shall be eaten. 18 In the first day shall be a Holy Calling; you shall not do any work of service: 19 And you shall bring a Fire Offering: an Elevation Offering to 
hwhy; two bullocks of sons of a herd, and one ram, and seven lambs sons of a year: they shall be perfect to you: 20 and their Food (Grain) Offering shall be of flour mixed in the oil: three tenths for the bullock, and two tenths for the ram, you shall do; 21 a tenth, a tenth, you shall do for the one lamb, for the seven lambs: 22 and one goat for a Sin Offering to atone upon yourselves, 23 apart of the Elevation Offering of the breaking (morning), which is for the Continual Elevation Offering, you shall do ta-these, 24 as these you shall do the Bread of the Fire Offering for the day, of the seven days, of a pleasant scent to hwhy: shall be done upon the Continual Elevation Offering, and his Drink Offering. 25 And in the seventh day shall be a Holy Calling to you; you shall not do any work of service.

26 And in the day of the firstfruits, in your bringing a new Food Offering to hwhy, in your Shavuoth, shall be a Holy Calling to you; you shall not do any work of service: 27 and you shall bring an Elevation Offering for a pleasant scent to hwhy; two bullocks of sons of a herd, one ram, seven lambs of sons of a year; 28 and their Food (Grain) Offering of flour mixed in the oil of three tenths for the one bullock, two tenths for the one ram, 29 a tenth, a tenth, for the one lamb, for the seven lambs; 30 one kid of the goats, to atone upon yourselves, 31 apart of the Continual Elevation Offering and his Food Offering, you shall do, they shall be perfect for you, and their Drink Offerings.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


These offferings are applied based on Leviticus chapter twenty three.


Overall, there are four basic ingredients 
hwhy requires in a series of the offerings:

1. A Domestic Kosher Farm Animal
2. Flour
3. Oil
4. Wine

And these are their symbolic meanings:

1. A Domestic Kosher Farm Animal: Yeshua being sacrificed
2. Flour: the Flesh of Yeshua
3. Oil: the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)
4. Wine: the Blood of Yeshua




Looking at the following offerings:

Verses three through eight

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERINGS

3 And you shall say to them, This is the Fire Offering which you shall bring to hwhy; two perfect lambs of sons of a year for the Daily Continual Elevation Offering. 4 You shall do ta-the one lamb in the breaking (morning), and you shall do ta the second lamb between the mixing periods; 5 and a tenth of the ephah of flour for a Food (Grain) Offering, in mixing in a fourth of the hin of beaten oil. 6 A Continual Elevation Offering that was done in Mount Sinai, for a pleasant scent of a Fire Offering to hwhy, 7 and his Drink Offering shall be a fourth of the hin for the one lamb: in the Sanctuary shall be the pouring of the strong Drink Offering to hwhy. 8 And you shall do ta the second lamb between the mixing periods: as the Food (Grain) Offering of the morning, and his Drink Offering, you shall do of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERINGS
THE FIRE OFFERING
*Two perfect lambs, sons of a year- the first lamb in the morning and the second lamb between the mixings
THE FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING
*1/10 of the Ephah of flour, mixed in 1/4 of a hin of oil beaten (similar to Leviticus 2:1-3 [Note: the adding of frankincense is not mentioned])
THE DRINK OFFERING
*1/4 of the hin [of wine], and in the Holy Sanctuary the priests pour the strong drink to hwhy
[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day)]


According to www.convert-me.com

An Ephah is 5.586 gallons.
A Hin is 0.9309 gallons.

This is because it is based that
hwhy separated the light from the darkness, as it is noted in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 1:3 And Elohim said Be Light, and became Light. 4 And Elohim saw ta-the light for goodness. And Elohim divided (separated, distinguished) between the Light and between the Darkness. 5 And Elohim called to the light, Day, and called to the darkness, Night. And became evening and became morning: One day.
This offering is done twice within a twenty four hour day: one to atone for the day time at the breaking (morning), and one to atone for the night time between the mixing periods, as it was done on Mount Sinai, a soothing fragrance to hwhy. This offering is based in the Torah portion of T'tsav-veh, in the book of Exodus
Exodus 29:38 And this is what you shall offer upon the Altar; two lambs, sons of a year by day, continually. 39 ta-the one lamb you shall offer in the breaking (morning); and ta the second lamb you shall offer between the mixing periods: 40 And for the one lamb shall be a tenth of flour mixed in the oil, a fourth of the hin, beaten; and a Drink Offering of a fourth of the hin of wine. 41 And ta the second lamb you shall offer between the mixing periods, and you shall do to her according to the Food Offering of the breaking (morning) and according to her Drink Offering for a pleasant scent, a Fire Offering to hwhy, 42 a continual Elevation Offering for your generations at the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment toward the Face of hwhy where I will meet of you there to speak to you there. 43 And I will meet there to the Sons of Israel and shall be sanctified in My glory. 44 And I will sanctify ta-the Tent of Appointment, and ta-the Altar: And I will sanctify ta-Aaron and ta-his sons to do Priestly acts for Me. 45 And I will dwell in the midst of the Sons of Israel, and I will be to them for Elohim. 46 And they shall know that I am hwhy, their Elohim, who brought them from the land of Egypt for My dwelling in their midst: I am hwhy, their Elohim.
These daily sacrifices is the same issue our Heavenly Father, through Yeshua, requires us to do today, but with our bodies as the apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the assembly in Rome
Romans12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of hwhy, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable unto hwhy, which is your reasonable service.
Just like the daily sacrifices at the Tent of Appointment, We have to present our living bodies to Him daily.
Verses nine and ten
THE SHABBATH OFFERING
9 And on the day of the Shabbath day shall be two perfect lambs of sons of a year, and two tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil, and his Drink Offering: 10 The Elevation Offering of the Shabbath, on his Shabbath, upon the Continual Elevation Offering, and her Drink Offering.

THE SHABBATH OFFERING

THE ELEVATION OFFERING
*Two perfect lambs, sons of a year

THE FOOD (GRAIN) OFFERING
2/10 ephah of flour mixed in oil


THE DAILY FIRE OFFERINGS
*Without The Food Offering

Practically, it is close to a double Fire Offering. The Daily Fire Offering in this case did not include the Food Offering. Maybe it is 
hwhy's mercy on them, because it is the Shabbath, and there was already a Food (Grain) Offering. I'm guessing the other Drink Offering is the same requirement as the one for the Daily Fire Offering.

hwhy also wants us to sacrifice our desire to work on the seventh day by resting on the Shabbath and have fellowship with Him.

Indirectly related, the Shabbath is a "gift" that 
hwhy gave to the Israelites. Looking back in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 2:2 And on the seventh day, Elohim finished His work that was made, and rested on the seventh day from all His work that was made. 3 And Elohim blessed ta-the seventh day and sanctified him, for on him rested from all His work which Elohim created for the making.

hwhy started the Shabbath and set the example by resting on it Himself. Then He gave it to the Israelites roughly 2500 years after the first Shabbath rest. If it was good enough for hwhy to rest on the seventh day, it is good enough for us.

In the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), the Shabbath is manifested by Yeshua reveals Himself as the Lord of the Shabbath, noted in the Gospels of Matthew and Mark

Matthew 12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Shabbath day.

Mark 2:27 And He said unto them, the Shabbath was made for man, and not man for the Shabbath:

Yeshua was saying that "the Shabbath" is Yeshua, Himself, as well as "the Living Shabbath" and "the Eternal Shabbath", and that we are to enter into His rest, meaning "hwhy's "Rest"", meaning Yeshua, "the living Rest" and "the Eternal Rest". It is hinted in the apostle Paul's book of the Hebrews

Hebrews 3:18 And to whom sware he that they should not enter into His Rest, but to them that believed not? 19 So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.

4:1 Let us therefore fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into His Rest, any of you should seem to come short of it. 2 For unto us was the Gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it. 3 For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in My Wrath, if they shall enter into My Rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.




Verses eleven through fifteen

THE NEW MONTHS (NEW MOON) OFFERING


11 And in the head of your months, you shall bring an Elevation Offering to hwhy; two bullocks of sons of a herd, and one ram, seven perfect lambs of sons of a year; 12 and three tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil for one bullock; and two tenths of flour of a Food (Grain) Offering mixed in the oil for the one ram; 13 and a tenth, a tenth, of flour of a Food Offering mixed in the oil for the one lamb; of an Elevation Offering of a pleasant scent of a Fire Offering to hwhy, 14 and their Drink Offering of wine shall be a half of the hin to the bullock, and a third of the hin for the ram, and a fourth of the hin for the lamb. This is the Elevation Offering of the month, in his month, for the months of the year. 15 And one kid of the goats for a Sin Offering to hwhy upon doing the Continual Elevation Offering, and his Drink Offering.

THE BREAD OF THE FIRE OFFERINGS (Each day for the seven days of Unleavened Bread)

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERINGS
*Without the Daily Night Offering


[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

Notice that the Daily Fire Offrering did not include the Daily Night Offering. The Passover was a Commandment, which one of them was to have the Passover Lamb sacrificed between the mixing periods, at night, and another was to eat unleavened bread with the Passover Lamb. hwhy wanted the Israelites and the Priests to focus on this High Holy Day event. As a result, hwhy made an exception to this Commandment by not including the Daily Night Offering, because the Passover Lamb Sacrifice and the unleavened bread for this High Holy Day outranked the Daily Night Offering, and it became the substitute for the Daily Night Offering, which included the Night's Food (Grain) Offering. hwhy wanted the Israelites to concentrate on this night's Passover meal. This also connects with Yeshua having to die to be the Passover Lamb before sunset to fulfill the Commandment to focus on Him as the Passover.

Also, the Food Offering of the Daily Night Offering was not included during the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, because
hwhy wanted the Israelites to focus on eating the unleavened bread at night for seven days, which each night begins the Biblical new day. Though it doesn't require an animal sacrifice, hwhy made it important enough to outrank the entire Daily Night Offering. Also, the Bread of the Fire Offering was mentioned to be offered for each of the seven days of the Feast of the Unleavened Bread, because hwhy wanted to emphasize this High Holy Holy of Unleavned Bread. Yeshua fulfilled the three days and three nights in the tomb, and had to be resurrected on the beginning of the fourth day of unleavened bread, which occurred at sunset on the new Biblical week, fulfilling the scriptures.

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERING

[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

This High Holy Day required the
New Food Offering was used in place of the Food (Grain) Offering, because the wheat had just ripened for harvest. Also Shavuoth required two leavened breads to be offered to the Priest for a sacririce, as mentioned in the book of Leviticus

Leviticus 23:17 17 You shall bring two of them of the Bread of the Wave Offering, they shall be two tenths of flour; they shall be baked of leavened bread; the First Fruits to hwhy. 18 And you shall bring near upon the bread seven lambs of perfect ones of sons of a year, and one bullock of a son of a herd, and two rams: they are an Elevation Offering to hwhy, and their Food Offerings, and their Drink Offerings of a Fire Offering of a pleasant scent to hwhy.

Both of these factors outranked the Daily Food Offering from the Daily Fire Offering, and replaced the Daily Food Offering. This is the only time 
hwhy allowed leavened bread for offerings on the Altar. Why? In my opinion, in this unusual case, the leaven represents new life in the unleavened bread. This would be a type of the fulfillment of hwhy sending down the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to give new life in Yeshua's disciples, noted in the book of Acts

Acts 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from the heavens as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. 3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

This High Holy Day sacrifice included the New Month Offering, because Yom Teruah occured on the new moon (as in "moonth"). I do not know why it did not include Drink Offerings for Yom Teruah, but allowing it for the Daily Fire Offering. Maybe it's the fact that it was a Solemn Assembly, and 
hwhy didn't want the Priest to get too much of the Drink Offerings, if you get my drift :) .

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERING

[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

In Leviticus chapter sixteen,
hwhy commanded during Yom Kippur to have two goats: the one dedicated to hwhy, and the one for the Azazel (Scapegoat). That is why they needed a third goat, because one of them needed to be the Azazel (Scapegoat).

Verse seven has the only Aleph-Tav mentioned in this chapter, and it relates to the Fall High Holy Days. It is applied to the phrase "our souls".

What
hwhy is trying to reveal to us is that our souls are of importance to Him, and that this is the only High Holy Day where it is emphasized to have our souls repent, which is once in a year. Even so, we can still go to the Heavenly Father and ask for forgiveness and repent then. But this is His Holy Day, and we still have to honor the Heavenly Father's High Holy Day of Yom Kippur. Also, the Aleph-Tav represents Yeshua's connection to us, which He later "atoned" for us at the cross, as the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in hwhy through our Lord Yeshua the Messsiah, by whom we have now received the atonement.

W
e can thank hwhy that we have we have only "One Person" to atone for us, and He is Yeshua.

THE DAILY FIRE OFFERING

[THE SHABBATH OFFERING (Depending on the day and year)]

This was a solemn day. It is not to be a festive type day, and that is why the fewness of the offerings. That is why 
hwhy said to feast for "seven" days, and not eight.



The eight days of these sacrifices would make a great tradition, by reading these sacrifices each day during the eight days of Sukkoth/Solemn Assembly.



According to Eddie Chumney of Hebraic Heritage Ministries International, adding all the bullocks together in these seven days of sacrifices, they total to seventy bullocks, symbolized the same number as the number of souls of Jacob and his descendants that went down to Egypt, as noted in the Torah portion of Vay-Yigash, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 46:26 All of the souls that came to Jacob to Egypt, coming out of his loins, besides the wives of the sons of Jacob, all the souls were sixty and six; 27 and the sons of Joseph who were birthed to him in Egypt were two souls: all the souls to the house of Jacob that went down to Egypt were seventy.



Adding the
one bullock from the Solemn Assembly, in my opinion, refers to "the Unknown Soul" mention by Stephen in the book of Acts when he said to the illegitimate High Priest and the council that there were seventy five souls, as noted in the book of the Acts

Acts 7:14 Then sent Joseph, and called his father Jacob to him, and all his kindred, threescore and fifteen souls.

And adding the total, there was only seventy four, including the four wives, although Rachel died in her journey in Canaan many years prior. This one bullock sacrificed during the day of the Solemn Assembly was the symbol of Yeshua, the seventy fifth soul. This High Holy Day would be the eighth day that Yeshua was circumcised, which was fulfilled in the Commandment to Abraham, noted in the Torah portion of Lekh L'kha, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 17:9 And Elohim said to Abraham, And you, you shall keep ta-My Covenant, you, and your seed after you to their generations. 10 This is My Covenant, which you shall keep, between Me and between you and between your seed after you; Circumcise to you every male. 11 And you shall circumcise ta-the flesh of your foreskin; and shall be for a token of the Covenant between Me and between you. 12 And a son of eight days shall be circumcised to you of every male to your generations that is birthed in the house, or bought with silver from any son of a foreigner whom he is not from your seed. 13  The circumcising, shall be circumcised one birthed of your house, and one bought from your silver: and My Covenant, she shall be in your flesh for a Covenant of Ages. 14 And an uncircumcised male who has not circumcised ta-the flesh of his foreskin is not circumcised, and shall cut her off, she, the soul, from her people; has broken ta-My Covenant.

As I also noted in my teaching "When Was Yeshua Born? Evidence Based on Scriputral Facts", It is my humble but strong opinion that Isaac was born on the first day of Sukkoth and was circumcised on the eighth day of Solemn Assembly.

It is obvious that these offerings for the High Holy Day of Sukkoth was the most ever offered. I asked myself, "Why did 
hwhy require so many animals to be sacrificed during Sukkoth"? And the answer came to be was, because He wanted the Israelites to be generous and be thankful to Him for their harvest and multiplication of their livestock. But it was this reason that hit me like a ton of bricks, which also became a "duh moment": hwhy wanted to eat in the Feast of Sukkoth with the Congregation through all the sacrifices of the animals, which was hwhy's equivalency of "His Festive Food". In other words hwhy wanted to "party" with the People. This is hwhy's participation with the Israelite People from the heavens to have a heavens-earth connection through His relationship with His People. His relationship with them also applies to the other sacrifices starting with the daily sacrifices in chapter twenty eight. Here's a hypothetical question: If you invite a brother to join you at his home, and you eat food while your brother watches you, how would you think that brother would feel being left out? He would think to himself that he is not planning to come to his home again. Think about how hwhy would feel if He felt that He was not allowed to partake at the Feast of Sukkoth. Wouldn't He feel similar to what that hypothetical brother would feel? He wants to eat with the Israelite family too. They are His "Mishpokhah", His Family. This is a "Heavens-Earth Sukkoth Party".

It was probable that Yeshua based these last two of this week's Torah portion chapters of sacrifices by
this scripture, noted by the apostle John in the book of Revelation

Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.

Yeshua wants to have a relationship with us and "sup" with us. Based on Yeshua's statement, this is 
hwhy's way of "supping" with His firstborn, Israel. When was the last time you asked Yeshua to "sup" with you at the kitchen table, especially during the Feast of Sukkoth? Ask Him to partke of the meals with you. I know He will be honored and exited to do so. It would be a great Heavens-Earth connection.



Notice that the bullocks went down in numbers, one by one, every day for the seven days, because they are the most expensive merchandise to the owners. 
hwhy wanted "the best of the best" of the animals to feast on this festive time.



Another thing that I observed in these sacrifices is that there are places in the Spring High Holy Day sacrifices that says in the Hebrew "his" offerings, but in the Fall Holy Day sacrifices, there are similar places where it says "her" offerings. Why the gender differences between the Spring and Fall? Is it possible that the Spring Holy Day offerings comes from the heavenly realm, all pertaining to 
hwhy: The Father, Yeshua, and the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit)- all male characters, while the Fall High Holy Day offerings pertain to Yeshua's Bride: we the believers? It is probable, because as I wrote in my teaching "The Parable of the Ten Virgins", the account in the Gospel of Matthew of the virgins relate to the Bride of Yeshua, and they pertain to the Fall High Holy Days of Yom Teruah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkoth.



Regarding the seven days, the first six days say the phrase "the Ordinance", but in the seventh day it says "their Ordinance". I do not know why this is so at this time.



That ends this week's Torah portion commentary.
