CHAPTER 3

Deuteronomy 3:23-29


Deu 3:23 And I implored hwhy in that time, to say, 24 You, Adonai hwhy, You have begun to show ta-Your servant ta-Your greatness, and ta-Your Strong Hand: whom who is El in the heavens and in the earth, who can do according to Your Works, and according to Your Might? 25 I will go over, now, and I will see ta-the good land which is in over the Jordan, this good mountain, and the Lebanon. 26 And hwhy was overpassing against me for your accounts, and did not hearken to me: and hwhy said to me, Is much to you; you will not speak ever again to Me on this word. 27 Ascend to the head of the Pisgah, and lift up your eyes seaward (westward), and hiddenward (northward), and rightward (southward), and risingward (eastward), and see among your eyes: for you shall not go over ta-this Jordan. 28 And command ta-Joshua, and strenghten him, and encourage him: for he shall go over to the face of this People, and he shall have them inherit ta-the land which you see. 29 And we dwelled in the valley approaching Beth Peor.

Verse twenty three

23 And I implored hwhy in that time, to say,

Looking at the word IMPLORED

The Hebrew word for implored is "khah-nahn"- Khet, Nun, Nun Sophit (
Nnx). It is from Strong's Concordance number 2603, and its definition

A primitive root (compare H2583); properly to bend or stoop in kindness to an inferior; to favor, bestow; causatively to implore (that is, move to favor by petition): - beseech, X fair, (be, find, shew) favour (-able), be (deal, give, grant (gracious (-ly), intreat, (be) merciful, have (shew) mercy (on, upon), have pity upon, pray, make supplication, X very.

from 2583 "khah-nah" (
hnx), and its definition

A primitive root (compare H2603); properly to incline; by implication to decline (of the slanting rays of evening); specifically to pitch a tent; generally to encamp (for abode or siege): - abide (in tents), camp, dwell, encamp, grow to an end, lie, pitch (tent), rest in tent.

Moses was pleading in kindness to 
hwhy to let him go over the Jordan to the promised land.



Verse twenty four through twenty six

24 You, Adonai hwhy, You have begun to show ta-Your servant ta-Your greatness, and ta-Your Strong Hand: whom who is El in the heavens and in the earth, who can do according to Your Works, and according to Your Might? 25 I will go over, now, and I will see ta-the good land which is in over the Jordan, this good mountain, and the Lebanon. 26 And hwhy was overpassing against me for your accounts, and did not hearken to me: and hwhy said to me, Is much to you; you will not speak ever again to Me on this word.

Ihwhy allowed Moses to go over, He would have broken His Word, and would have given a bad example to the Israelites and Moses, by saying that He said that it was OK not to believe in Him and His Words, and that He can change His mind on it.

Looking at the account of the Parable of the Lord's Servant, in the Gospel of Luke

Luke 12:45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

Moses was given very much responsibility, and
much responsibility was required of him. This Brith Khadashah (New Covenant) source is compared of the judgment 
hwhy made against Moses to not go over the Jordan, when Moses struck the rock twice instead of speaking hwhy's Word to the rock at Meribah. Moses was in many ways symbolically "beaten with many stripes" for his error, thus breaking the First Word (Commandment) by not believing in hwhy.


Indirectly related, David had the affair with Bathsheba and made her pregnant with their child. David also had Urriah the Hittite killed by putting him in an isolating state under heavy fighting. Nathan came to him and gave him the two men and the lamb story. When David passed the judgment that he must die and give back fourfold, Nathan told David that it was him. Nathan also told him that 
hwhy said to tell David that the child will die.

This is where it continues as noted in the book of the prophet Samuel


2 Samuel 12:15 And Nathan departed unto his house. And 
hwhy struck ta-the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick. 16 David therefore besought ta-Elohim for the child; and David fasted, and went in, and lay all night upon the earth. 17 And the elders of his house arose, and went to him, to raise him up from the earth: but he would not, neither did he eat bread with them. 18 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died. And the servants of David feared to tell him that the child was dead: for they said, Behold, while the child was yet alive, we spake unto him, and he would not hearken unto our voice: how will he then vex himself, if we tell him that the child is dead? 19 But when David saw that his servants whispered, David perceived that the child was dead: therefore David said unto his servants, Is the child dead? And they said, He is dead. 20 Then David arose from the earth, and washed, and anointed himself, and changed his apparel, and came into the house of hwhy, and worshipped: then he came to his own house; and when he required, they set bread before him, and he did eat. 21 Then said his servants unto him, What thing is this that thou hast done? thou didst fast and weep for the child, while it was alive; but when the child was dead, thou didst rise and eat bread. 22 And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether hwhy will be gracious to me, that the child may live? 23 But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.

David was praying to
hwhy to change His Word about his son, but like Moses, much is given, much is demanded. hwhy's Word cannot change.


In the Brith Khadashah (New Covenant), there was one person who had the right to request 
hwhy to change His mind, and it is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 26:37 And [Yeshua] took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38 Then saith He unto them, My Soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with Me. 39 And He went a little further, and fell on His Face, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from Me: nevertheless not as I will, but as Thou wilt. 40 And He cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O My Father, if this cup may not pass away from Me, except I drink it, Thy Will be done. 43 And He came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. 44 And He left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then cometh He to His disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray Me.

Yeshua was praying "three times" for The Heavenly Father to change His Word to not make Him take the cup, but Yeshua said to Him that His Will be done. Yeshua was required much by the Heavenly Father, even to the point of death, for the sake of honoring His Heavenly Father.




Verse twenty seven

27 Ascend to the head of the Pisgah, and lift up your eyes seaward (westward), and hiddenward (northward), and rightward (southward), and risingward (eastward), and see among your eyes: for you shall not go over ta-this Jordan.

This was Moses' consolation from 
hwhy by seeing the land, but not able to go over.


Indirectly related, regarding directions, the world has made the focal point of a compass to be in the north, because the major magnetic source is located in the northern end of the globe, by calling it "Magnetic North". But in the Hebraic Biblical perspective and viewpoint, the focal point of the directions were based at the facing of the sunrise, which is located generally in the east, which could be called "Biblical Magnetic East". On top of that, the Entrance of the Tent of Appointment was facing at the direction of the sunrise, the east. As I mentioned before regarding the Tent of Appointment in one of the Torah portions, when, at times, it says south, it is using the Hebrew word, literally translated, "right", because of the reasons mentioned above. The sea is noted because it is the Hebrew word "yam", meaning "sea", as in Yam Suph, meaning, the Sea of Papyrus Reeds. This is the Biblical, Toraic perspective of our Creator.


Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries brought up this interesting notion in saying that Moses was also told to look risingward, or eastward, to the land, but looking eastward meant Moses would be looking at the land east of the Jordan which Moses was already located. It meant that this was a future time event which has yet to be fulfilled. Thank you Monte.


Moses was not the first to be told to see the land around him. Abraham was also told to see the land surrounding him, and it is noted in the Torah portion of Lekh L'kha, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 13:3 And went to his journeying from the Negeb to Beth El, unto the place where his tent had been in the start between Beth El and between the Ai;... 12 Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the surroundings and tented unto Sodom. 13 And the men of Sodom were wicked ones and sinners to hwhy much. 14 And hwhy said to Abram, After the separation of Lot from with him, Lift now your eyes and look from the place where you are there; hiddenward (northward), and negebward (southward), and risingward (eastward), and seaward (westward): 15 for ta-all the land which you see to yourself will I give her to your seed unto ages. 16 And I will make ta-your seed as the dust of the earth: that if a man is able to number ta-the dust of the earth, also your seed shall be numbered. 17 Rise, walk in the land to her length and to her breadth; for I will give her to you. 18 And Abram was tenting, and came and dwelt in the Oaks of Mamre which is in Hebron, and built there an altar to hwhy.

Abraham was in Between Bethel and Ai as hwhy spoke this to him. It is located in the red sqare

When Moses was told to go up to see the land that he could not go over, it must have broken Moses' heart very much, and most likely cried over it. At the same time, back in Meribah, when Moses struck the rock instead of speaking to it, it could have been
hwhy
's plan to allow for it to happen, because He knew that in perspective, that Moses represented the Torah. Hypothetically, say that Moses did go over to the Promised Land. Then where would Joshua, in Hebrew "Yehoshua" (translated as "Yah Saves") play in the role of going into the land? There would have been no "salvation", and there would have been no type and shadow of Yeshua, meaning "Salvation", to come into the world 2,000 years ago as well as Yeshua's second coming in the end times. Moses somehow must have known that in the back of his mind that he was an end of a certain era of this Biblical and historical point for the People of Israel. Also, he had to have known that Joshua had to take over the baton, and be the next era of circumstances for them for "salvation" to bring them over to the Promised Land.







CHAPTER 4

Deuteronomy 4:1-49

Deu 4:1 And now, Israel, hearken to the Statutes and to the Judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, by that, you may live, and you will go in, and you will possess
ta-the land which hwhy, the Elohim of your fathers, is giving to you. 2 You shall not add upon the Word which I command you, and you shall not remove from him, to keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy, your Elohim, which I command you. 3 Your eyes have seen ta what hwhy did in Baal Peor: for every man who went after Baal Peor, hwhy, your Elohim, hath destroyed him from your midst. 4 And you, all of you that have clung on hwhy, your Elohim, are alive today.

5 See, I have taught you the Statutes and the Judgments, as which
hwhy, my Elohim, commanded me, to do so in the midst of the land which you are going there to possess her. 6 And you shall keep, and you shall do; for she is your wisdom and your understanding to the eyes of the peoples, whom they shall hear ta all these Statutes, and they shall say, Surely, this great nation is a wise and understanding People. 7 For who is a great nation, whom Elohim approches to him, as hwhy, our Elohim, is in all our calling to him? 8 And what great nation who has Statutes and Righteous Judgments to him as all this Torah which I set to your faces today?

9 Only guard for yourself, and guard your soul much, lest you forget
ta-the things which your eyes, they have seen, and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life: and you shall have them known to your sons, and the sons of your sons; 10 the day which you stood towards the Face of hwhy, your Elohim, in Horeb, in hwhy saying to me, Assemble to Me ta-the People, and I will make them hear ta-My Words that they shall learn to fear Me all the days that they shall live upon the ground, and they shall teach ta-their sons. 11 And you drew near, and you stood under the mountain; and the mountain was burning in the fire unto the heart of the heavens, of darkness, clouds, and gloom. 12 And hwhy spoke to you from the midst of the fire: you heard the sound of the Words, and you were not seeing an image; only a Voice, 13 and declared to you ta-His Covenant, which was commanded you to do the Ten Words; and wrote them upon two tablets of stones. 14 And hwhy commanded me in her time to teach you the Statutes and Judgments for you to do them in the land which you are going over there to possess her.

15 And you guard much for your souls; for you did not see any form in the day 
hwhy spoke to you in Horeb from the midst of the Fire: 16 lest you are corrupt, and make yourselves a vessel image of a form of any idol, the form of a male or a female, 17 a form of any animal that is on the earth, of a shape of any winged bird, that she flies in the heavens, 18 a form of any creeper on the ground, a form of any fish that is in the waters under the earth: 19 and lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens, and you see ta-the sun, and ta-the moon, and ta-the stars, all the host of the heavens, and you are driven, and you bow to them, and you serve them, which hwhy, your Elohim, had separated them to all of the peoples under all the heavens.

20 And
hwhy took you, and brought you from the iron furnace, from Egypt, to be to Him for a People of Inheritance, as this day. 21 And hwhy was angry against me upon your words, and swore I would not go over ta-the Jordan, and I would not go to the good land, which hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you of an inheritance: 22 for I shall die in this land, I am not going over ta-the Jordan: and you shall go over, and you shall possess ta-this good land. 23 Guard for yourselves, lest you forget ta-the Covenant of hwhy, your Elohim, which was cut with you, and you make for yourselves a vessel image of a form of anything, which hwhy, your Elohim, has commanded you. 24 for hwhy, your Elohim, is a Consuming Fire, He is a Jealous El.

25 When you birth sons, and sons of sons, and you have remained in the land, and you shall be corrupted, and you make a vessel image, of a form of anything, and you shall do the evil in the Eyes of 
hwhy, your Elohim, to provoke Him to indignancy:

26 I make
ta-the heavens and ta-the earth witness against you today, for perishing, you shall perish hastily from upon the land which you are going over ta-the Jordan there to possess her; you shall not lengthen your days upon her, for destroying, you shall be destroyed. 27 And hwhy shall scatter you among the peoples, and you shall be left few of number among the nations, which hwhy shall lead you there. 28 And you will serve there elohim, the work of the hands of men, of wood and stone, which they shall not see, they shall not hear, and they shall not eat, and they shall not smell. 29 And in your seeking ta-hwhy, your Elohim, there, you shall find, if you seek Him in all of your heart and in all of your soul, 30 in affliction toward you, and you have found all these things in the latter days, and you shall return unto hwhy, your Elohim, and you will listen in His Voice; 31 For hwhy, your Elohim, a Merciful El; will not forsake you, and will not destroy you, and shall not forget ta-the Covenant of your fathers which was sworn to them. 32 For ask now, of the first days, which they were to your faces, for from the day Elohim created Adam upon the earth, and of the end of the heavens and unto the end of the heavens, that has been like this great thing (word), or has been heard like him? 33 A People hearing the Voice of Elohim speaking from the midst of the Fire, as which you have heard, you, and live? 34 Or Elohim attemped to go to take for Himself a Nation from the midst of a nation, in trials, by signs, and in wonders, and in war, and in a strong hand, and in an outstretched arm, and in great terrors, according to all that hwhy, your Elohim, did for you from Egypt to your eyes? 35 You, you have seen, by knowing that hwhy, He is the Elohim; none other by His apartness, 36 made you hear ta-His Voice from the heavens to instruct you: and you had seen ta-His Great Fire upon the earth; and you heard His Words from the midst of the Fire, 37 and of humbleness for loving ta-your fathers, and chose his seed after them, and brought you from His Face on His great power from Egypt; 38 to drive out great and mighty nations from you from your face, to bring you to give to you ta-their land of an inheritance as this day. 39 And you shall know today, and you shall dwell toward your heart, that hwhy, He is the Elohim in the heavens above, and upon the earth underneath: of no other.

40 And you shall keep
ta-His Statutes, and ta-His Commandments, which I am commanding you today that shall be well to you and to your sons after you, and by that, you may lenghten the days upon the ground, which hwhy, your Elohim, is givng to you all of the days.

41 Then Moses separated three cities in over the Jordan of the rising of the sun; 42 for the slayer fleeing there who killed
ta-his neighbor in not knowing, and he was not of hatred to him of yesterday, of three; and fled to one of these cities and live: 43 ta-Bezer in the wilderness in the leveled land of the Reubenites; and ta-Ramoth in the Gilead of the Gadites; and ta-Golan in the Bashan of the Manassites.

44 And this is the Torah which Moses set to the face of the Sons of Israel: 45 These are the Testimonies, and the Statutes, and the Judgments, which Moses spoke to the Sons of Israel, in their coming out from Egypt, 46 in over the Jordan, in the valley approaching Beth Peor, in the land of Sihon, King of the Amorites, who dwelled in Heshbon, whom Moses and the Sons of Israel struck in their coming out from Egypt: 47 and they possessed
ta-his land, and ta-the land of Og, King of the Bashan, two kings of the Amorites who were in over the Jordan of the rising of the sun; 48 from Aroer which is upon the edge of the torrent of Arnon, and unto Mount Sion, he is Hermon, 49 and all of the Arabah over the Jordan risingward (eastward), and unto the sea of the Arabah under the streams of the Pisgah.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verses one and two

1 And now, Israel, hearken to the Statutes and to the Judgments, which I teach you, for to do them, by that, you may live, and you will go in, and you will possess ta-the land which hwhy, the Elohim of your fathers, is giving to you. 2 You shall not add upon the Word which I command you, and you shall not remove from him, to keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy, your Elohim, which I command you.

Moses said this similar statement in the Torah portion of R'ey, in the book of Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 12:32 
ta All of the word I am commanding you, you will observe him to do: you shall not add upon him, and you shall not diminish from him.
 
This is an example, and it regards Adam and Eve. 
hwhy told both of them a Commandment regarding the trees, which is noted in the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 2:16 
And hwhy Elohim commanded unto the Adam, by saying, Of every tree of the garden, eating, you can eat. 17 And of the Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil you shall not eat of him, for in the day of your eating of him, dying, you shall die.

Forwarding in its next chapter, the serpent tempted Eve, with Adam present with her, by asking her this question

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?

This was Eve response in its next verse

Genesis 3:2 
And the woman, she said to the serpent, Of the fruit of the trees of the garden we may eat: 3 but of 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.

The reason the serpent, HaSatan, was able to respond to her that she shall not die, because somehow, sometime in the Garden, the serpent was able to hear the Words 
hwhy said to Adam regarding the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, and in another time, serpent could have overheard Adam speaking to Khavah (Eve) these "added words", which she added that hwhy did not say to Adam, which was "and shall you shall not touch him". HaSatan, the serpent, got her and proved her wrong by getting the in, by respond to her "added words", now spoken out to the serpent. After Adam and Eve ate the apple, hwhy judged them, and hwhy told Eve in its chapter

Genesis 3:16 
To the woman, said, Multiplying, I will multiply your sorrow, and your pregnancy you shall birth sons in sorrow; and your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.

Khavah (Eve) was punished for speaking the "added words" to 
hwhy's words, by "adding" her sorrow in her conception. In other words she sowed by adding, and hwhy made her reap what she showed by adding by adding sorrow. As the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Galatia

Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; hwhy is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

hwhyl dbk

Another example is in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), which the apostle John warned against anyone adding or deleting words he wrote to them, which is noted in the book of Revelation


Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things (or words), 
hwhy shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, hwhy shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from the things which are written in this book.

The apostle John had to have known the Commandment in this week's Torah portion passage. All of us believers in the Messiah need to heed to "all the words" of the book of Revelation.

If one adds or diminishes what was worded literally, one nullifies the Word. One needs to be careful what was said. Lawyers today love to catch someone in court on the witness stand off guard if they don't repeat their words accurately. Even politicians love to run around Robin Hood's barn when they were caught with saying something, and then have to defend what they say by saying that it was not what they really meant, then turn around and accusing the accuser that they took their words out of context. Another famous politician made a famous saying was that one would have to define "what the word is, is".

Also, in verse two of this week's Torah portion passage, the reason they were not to add or diminish those words, because the Word, was, and is, and is to be "perfect" which (or "Who") is the same yesterday, today and forever. The reason is, that Yeshua is "the Word" manifested in the flesh, as noted in the Gospel of John

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. 2 The same was in the beginning with Elohim.... 14  And the Word was made Flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Glory, the glory as of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.

Yeshua is Who Was and Is and Is to Come, as Yeshua noted by the apostle John in the book of Revelation

Revelation 1:8 I am Alpha [in Hebrew, Aleph] and Omega [in Hebrew, Tav], the Beginning and the Ending, saith the Lord, who Is, and who Was, and who Is to Come, the Almighty.

Yeshua is also the same yesterday, today and forever, which is noted in the apostle Paul's letter in the book of the Hebrews

Hebrews 13:8 Yeshua the Messiah [is] the Same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

If they (or even us) added or deleted any of the Word, they, or we, would be adding and deleting "Yeshua, the Living Word made Flesh". It would be like adding and taking away any of the Body Parts and Organs of Yeshua's Body that are not supposed to be, like a Frankenstein, and doing this would had been nothing more than creating a "GMO/GEI/GM human being". Those who have done this will be judged for this, We are not immuned to this, because if we in Messiah did the same thing, we would also be judged for it. This would also be an indirect attack against hwhy and Yeshua by adding and deleting His Words, as well as Yeshua, the Living Word.



Verses three and four

3 Your eyes have seen ta what hwhy did in Baal Peor: for every man who went after Baal Peor, hwhy, your Elohim, hath destroyed him from your midst. 4 And you, all of you that have clung on hwhy, your Elohim, are alive today.

Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries and Brad Scott of Wildbranch Ministry noted that history repeats itself. Based on this verse, does this phrase relate to the end times in which history is repeating itself with the last generation, which is us, who are alive clinging to 
hwhy this day?



Verse five

5 See, I have taught you the Statutes and the Judgments, as which hwhy, my Elohim, commanded me, to do so in the midst of the land which you are going there to possess her.

I don't recall Moses ever used the phase "
hwhy, my Elohim" before. He would normally say "hwhy, your Elohim", meaning the People. Why did Moses say it as his Elohim? I don't have an answer at this time.



Verse six

6 And you shall keep, and you shall do; for she is your wisdom and your understanding to the eyes of the peoples, whom they shall hear ta all these Statutes, and they shall say, Surely, this great nation is a wise and understanding People....

King Solomon applied part of this verse in the book of the Proverbs

Proverbs 7:1 My son, keep My Words, and lay up My Commandments with thee. 2 Keep My Commandments, and live; and my Torah as the apple of thine eye. 3 Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart. 4 Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman: 5 That they may keep thee from the strange woman, from the stranger which flattereth with her words. 6 For at the window of My House I looked through My Casement, 7 And beheld among the simple ones, I discerned among the youths, a young man void of understanding, 8 Passing through the street near her corner; and he went the way to her house, 9 In the twilight, in the evening, in the black and dark night: 10 And, behold, there met him a woman with the attire of an harlot, and subtil of heart. 11 (She is loud and stubborn; her feet abide not in her house: 12 Now is she without, now in the streets, and lieth in wait at every corner.) 13 So she caught him, and kissed him, and with an impudent face said unto him, 14 I have peace offerings with me; this day have I payed my vows. 15 Therefore came I forth to meet thee, diligently to seek thy face, and I have found thee. 16 I have decked my bed with coverings of tapestry, with carved works, with fine linen of Egypt. 17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon. 18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with loves. 19 For the goodman is not at home, he is gone a long journey: 20 He hath taken a bag of money with him, and will come home at the day appointed. 21 With her much fair speech she caused him to yield, with the flattering of her lips she forced him. 22 He goeth after her straightway, as an ox goeth to the slaughter, or as a fool to the correction of the stocks; 23 Till a dart strike through his liver; as a bird hasteth to the snare, and knoweth not that it is for his life. 24 Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the Words of My Mouth. 25 Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray in her paths. 26 For she hath cast down many wounded: yea, many strong men have been slain by her. 27 Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death.

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that this was, in many words, "a High Holy Day harlot", because according to him of this Proverbs account, this occurred during the time of the High Holy Day of Sukkoth.


There is also another location in the book of Proverbs where wisdom cries out

Proverbs 8:1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice? 2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. 3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. 4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man. 5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart. 6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things. 7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness is an abomination to my lips. 8 All the words of my mouth are in righteousness; there is nothing froward or perverse in them. 9 They are all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge. 10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. 11 For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. 12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. 13 The fear of hwhy is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. 14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. 17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. 18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. 19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. 20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures. 22 hwhy possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. 24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. 25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: 26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. 27 When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: 28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: 29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: 30 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; 31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with ta-the sons of Adam. 32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye sons: for blessed are they that keep my ways. 33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. 34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. 35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of hwhy. 36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.



Verse nine

9 Only guard for yourself, and guard your soul much,...

This could go back to the book of Genesis when Adam was supposed to guard the garden from any foreigners from invading it. He failed on that.



Verse nine

...lest you forget ta-the things which your eyes, they have seen,...

The Hebrew word for thing is "dah-bar"- Dalet, Bet, Resh (
rbd). It is from Strong's Concordance number 1697. This Hebrew word is also commonly translated as "word". Substituting "things" for "words", this is what it reads

...lest you forget ta-the words which your eyes, they have seen,

Commonly, it is translated as "things", but looking at it in a Hebraic Biblical perspective, things are words manifested in the physical realm, whether is through actions, or in physical forms, like creating something, as 
hwhy did in the very beginning. Taking this alternate translation, we can say in the phrase "lest we forget "the Living Word"' who is "Yeshua, the Word made Flesh". We do not want to let our guard down from the Word, or from "the Living Word", and guard Yeshua, the Living Word, in our hearts.



Verse nine

9 ...and lest they depart from your heart all the days of your life:..

Yeshua used the parable of the seed as the Word of Elohim and some fell by the wayside, but fear came up and the Word was removed from them. This is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 13:19 When any one heareth the Word of the Kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth [take] away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

In one aspect, to guard the Word is a means to understand the Word and to keep the Word. If one doesn't understand it, how can the Word be guarded? For us as believers in the Messiah, that is how the enemy HaSatan comes in, and takes the Word away from us.



Verse twelve

12 And hwhy spoke to you from the midst of the fire: you heard the sound of the Words, and you were not seeing an image; only a Voice,

This Voice is noted in the book of Kings

1 Kings 19:11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before hwhy. And, behold, hwhy passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before hwhy; but hwhy was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but hwhy was not in the earthquake: 12 And after the earthquake a fire; but hwhy was not in the fire: and after the fire a Still Small Voice.

Elijah was at Mount Sinai, today Jubal al Lawz, in northeastern Saudi Arabia, while escaping from the death threat of Queen Jezebel. hwhy was showing to Him that He does not speak through violent sources, but a Still Small Voice, like hwhy did at Mount Sinai during the Israelites' stay during their journey in the wilderness.

Today, when we as believers accepted Yeshua as our Messiah, and even those yet to accept Yeshua, we hear that "Still Small Voice", via the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), speaking to us in our hearts.

Indirectly related, we as believers have never seen Yeshua in his physical being, and yet we believe Him, and in Him and we hear His Voice. Yeshua said these things to His disciples by those who haven't seeing Him but yet believe in Him without seeing Him, which is noted in the Gospel of John

John 20:29 Yeshua saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

Supplementing, the apostle Paul noted in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

2 Corinthians 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Also, Yeshua emphasized those to hear His Voice, which is noted in the Gospel of John

John 10:16
 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My Voice; and there shall be one fold, and One Shepherd.

John 10:27 My sheep hear My Voice, and I know them, and they follow Me:

John 18:37 Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Yeshua answered, Thou sayest that I am a King. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the Truth. Every one that is of the Truth heareth My Voice.

Monte Judah of Lion and Lamb Ministries noted this verse from the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of hwhy.



Verses fifteen through ninteen

15 And you guard much for your souls; for you did not see any form in the day hwhy spoke to you in Horeb from the midst of the Fire: 16 lest you are corrupt, and make yourselves a vessel image of a form of any idol, the form of a male or a female, 17 a form of any animal that is on the earth, of a shape of any winged bird, that she flies in the heavens, 18 a form of any creeper on the ground, a form of any fish that is in the waters under the earth: 19 and lest you lift up your eyes to the heavens, and you see ta-the sun, and ta-the moon, and ta-the stars, all the host of the heavens, and you are driven, and you bow to them, and you serve them, which hwhy, your Elohim, had separated them to all of the peoples under all the heavens.

This was also implied in verse twenty five

25 When you birth sons, and sons of sons, and you have remained in the land, and you shall be corrupted, and you make a vessel image, of a form of anything, and you shall do the evil in the Eyes of hwhy, your Elohim, to provoke Him to indignancy:

This was also applied in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant) by the apostle Paul in his letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 1:18 For the Wrath of hwhy is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19 Because that which may be known of hwhy is manifest in them; for hwhy hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21 Because that, when they knew hwhy, they glorified Him not as Elohim, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible Elohim into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

hwhy emphasizes not to make images of idols of any sorts. This would be an act of replacing the "acts" of the "unseen" hwhy. In society, past and present, those who do not believe in hwhy, want to idolize people or images, especially in today's tecno society.



Verse twenty

20 And hwhy took you, and brought you from the iron furnace, from Egypt, to be to Him for a People of Inheritance, as this day.

There is another account that 
hwhy delivered faithful men from a furnace, and it is noted in the book of the prophet Daniel

Daniel 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of Dura, in the province of Babylon. 2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather together the princes, the governors, and the captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. 3 Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up. 4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, 5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: 6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 7 Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. 8 Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews. 9 They spake and said to the king Nebuchadnezzar, O king, live for ever. 10 Thou, O king, hast made a decree, that every man that shall hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, shall fall down and worship the golden image: 11 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth, that he should be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. 12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. 13 Then Nebuchadnezzar in his rage and fury commanded to bring Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Then they brought these men before the king. 14 Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my elohim, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? 15 Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that Elohim that shall deliver you out of my hands? 16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. 17 If it be so, our Elohim whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. 18 But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. 19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and commanded that they should heat the furnace one seven times more than it was wont to be heated. 20 And he commanded the most mighty men that were in his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace. 21 Then these men were bound in their coats, their hosen, and their hats, and their other garments, and were cast into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 22 Therefore because the king's commandment was urgent, and the furnace exceeding hot, the flame of the fire slew those men that took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. 23 And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, fell down bound into the midst of the burning fiery furnace. 24 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. 25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the Form of the fourth is like the Son of Elohim. 26 Then Nebuchadnezzar came near to the mouth of the burning fiery furnace, and spake, and said, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, ye servants of the most high Elohim, come forth, and come hither. Then Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, came forth of the midst of the fire. 27 And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king's counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. 28 Then Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed be the Elohim of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own Elohim. 29 Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the Elohim of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other Elohim that can deliver after this sort. 30 Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, in the province of Babylon.

hwhy proved Himself as the same one who deliverd the Israelites from the iron furnace, but He revealed Himself in this account as "the Fourth Man". This fourth man was, and is Yeshua, who has also spiritually saved "us" from the iron furnace of this world.



Verse twenty four

24 for hwhy, your Elohim, is a Consuming Fire, He is a Jealous El.

hwhy will be a Consuming Fire if anyone forgets the Covenant in their residency in the land. He proved that earlier in the Torah during Israel's travels, which was during the time of Korah's Rebelion, which is noted in the Torah portion of Korakh, in the book of Numbers

Numbers 16:31 And it was, as he finished to speak ta all these words, and the ground, she divided asunder that was under them: 32 And the earth, she rent ta-her mouth, and she swallowed them up, and ta-their houses, and ta all of the Adam who were for Korah, and ta all their goods. 33 And they went down, they and all that was to them, alive to Sheol, and the earth, she closed upon them: and they perished from the midst of the Assembly. 34 And all Israel who were all around them, they fled by their cry: for they said, Lest the earth, she swallow us. 35 And fire came out from ta hwhy, and she consumed ta the fifty and two hundred men offering the incense.

Moses wouldn't have said this week's Torah portion passage if hwhy didn't prove it.



Verse twenty nine

29 And in your seeking ta-hwhy, your Elohim, there, you shall find, if you seek Him in all of your heart and in all of your soul,

This Torah verse ties in to what Yeshua said in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: 8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.



Verses thirty five through thirty nine

35 You, you have seen, by knowing that hwhy, He is the Elohim; none other by His apartness, 36 made you hear ta-His Voice from the heavens to instruct you: and you had seen ta-His Great Fire upon the earth; and you heard His Words from the midst of the Fire, 37 and of humbleness for loving ta-your fathers, and chose his seed after them, and brought you from His Face on His great power from Egypt; 38 to drive out great and mighty nations from you from your face, to bring you to give to you ta-their land of an inheritance as this day. 39 And you shall know today, and you shall dwell toward your heart, that hwhy, He is the Elohim in the heavens above, and upon the earth underneath: of no other.

Indirectly related, an example of remembrance occurred in Oberammergau, in Bavaria, Germany, who survived the Bubonic plague in 1632-33. This is what the Wikipedia website saysregarding this location

"In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany, vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague ravaging the region, they would produce a play thereafter for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus. The death rate among adults rose from one person per 1000 per year in October 1632 to twenty in the month of March 1633. The adult death rate slowly subsided to one in the month of July 1633. The villagers believed they had been spared and they kept their part of the vow when the play was first performed in 1634.

The play is now performed repeatedly over the course of five months during every year ending in zero. 102 performances took place from 15 May until 3 October 2010 and is next scheduled for 2020".

They perform the work "Oberammergau Passion Play", an act of their rememberance to their vow to hwhy every decade, and hwhy honors it. This Toraically relates to Moses saying to them to the Israelites seeing what was done at Baal Peor.


Another example is there is a movie about George Washington, and one scene takes place at the battle of Monmouth, during the Revolutionary War, in 1778. Colonel Lee and his men were in retreat, for unnecessary means, and Washington stopped him and his men from retreating any more. He rallied Lee's men and gave them inspiration, and I remembered this phrase in the movie that when Washington told Lee's men that what they would do in defeating the British, they would tell this battle experience "to their children and to their children's children".


One of my ancestors was Roger Clap (1609-1691), who was from Dorchester, Massachusetts. He wrote a book of his memoirs about his life events as well as giving Godly advice for his children and for his descendants. Though we are beyond the revelation he provided, it gives a reminder that we are descendants of righteous people.

For those who are interested, this is my ancestor's account titled "Memoirs of Roger Clap". Just right click and choose "Save as". For those who are known to be descendants of Roger Clap, it is a blessing, as well as seeing how far we came in this nation, as well as in our walk with Yeshua.

MEMOIRS OF ROGER CLAP, 1630 (1844)


Another example relating to verse three is in the Brith Khadashah (the New Covenant), when John the Baptist, while in prison, sent messengers to Yeshua to ask Him if He was the Messiah or should he look for someone else, which is noted in the Gospel of Matthew


Matthew 11:2 Now when John had heard in the prison the Works of Messiah, he sent two of his disciples, 3 And said unto Him, Art Thou He that should come, or do we look for another? 4 Yeshua answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: 5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. 6 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me.

Yeshua did not say to John "Yes John. I am the One whom you are looking for", but it was His actions that He said who the person is, and not the person in bodily form. That is why 
hwhy says not to make idols of any sorts. They are bodily forms and not actions. Do not forget that the Hebrew language is a language of "action".


Even Yeshua metioned this to Thomas when Yeshua visited His disciples after He was resurrected. It is in the Gospel of John


John 20:26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Yeshua, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my Elohim. 29 Yeshua saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.


In other words, do not focus on the image, but on the acts. That is why Moses said in verses forty five and forty nine that He is "the Elohim", in the Hebrew, Ha-Elohim (
myhlah). It has a "Heh" before "Elohim", meaning that He is "the" one and "the" only living Elohim, and there is no one else like Him.

That is why today, we do not know what Yeshua looks like. Throughout the Gospels, the Jews kept asking Yeshua who He was, or is. Yeshua only revealed Himself to two people: The man that was blind at the pool of Bethesda, and the Samaritan woman at the well of Jacob in Shechem. Besides His disciples, Yeshua did reveal Himself to the Jewish People that He was the Messiah by His Acts. His mission was not to say to the world that He is the Messiah. That was what HaSatan wanted Him to do, when Yeshua was tempted in the wilderness for forty days, by one of the tests, tempting Yeshua to throw Himself down from the top of the Temple and having the angels catching Him. That would make the Jews "see" that He was the Messiah and worship Him, but it would have been only in bodily form, and not through His miraculous acts.



Verse forty

40 And you shall keep ta-His Statutes, and ta-His Commandments, which I am commanding you today that shall be well to you and to your sons after you, and by that, you may lenghten the days upon the ground, which hwhy, your Elohim, is givng to you all of the days.

In connection to the rememberance of the Commandments, looking at this account of king Josiah, which is noted in the book of the Chronicles


2 Kings 22:8 And Hilkiah, the High Priest, said unto Shaphan, the Scribe, I have found 
ta-the Book of the Torah in the House of hwhy. And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read It. 9 And Shaphan, the Scribe, came to ta-the king, and brought the king word again, and said, Thy servants have gathered ta-the silver that was found in the House, and have delivered it into the hand of them that do the work, that have the oversight of the House of hwhy. 10 And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah, the Priest, hath delivered me a Book. And Shaphan read it before the king. 11 And it came to pass, when the king had heard ta-the Words of the Book of the Torah, that he rent ta-his clothes. 12 And the king commanded ta-Hilkiah, the Priest, and ta Ahikam, son of Shaphan, and ta-Achbor, son of Michaiah, and ta Shaphan, the Scribe, and ta Asahiah, a servant of the king's, saying, 13 Go ye, enquire of ta-hwhy for me, and for the People, and for all Judah, concerning the Words of this Book that is found: for great is the Wrath of hwhy that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the Words of this Book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us.

The southern house of Judah forgot the Torah for a long time, until it was "found" under King Josiah's rule. Josiah's name in Hebrew is Yoshiah- meaning "founded of Yah". King Josiah, brought the Torah back to remembrance to the People of the Kingdom of Judah.








CHAPTER 5

Deuteronomy 5:1-33

Deu 5:1 And Moses called to all Israel, and said to them, Hear, Israel,
ta-the Statutes and ta-the Judgments which I speak in your ears today, that you may learn them, and you will guard to do them. 2 hwhy, our Elohim, cut a Covenant with us in Horeb, 3 hwhy did not cut ta-this Covenant with ta-our fathers, but with us, we are these here today, all of us alive. 4 hwhy spoke with you Faces on faces in the mountain from the midst of the fire, 5 I stood between hwhy and between you in her time, to declare to you ta-the Word of hwhy: for you were afraid from the face of the fire, and you did not acesend on the mountain; to say,

6 I am hwhy, your Elohim, who brought you out from the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

7 Shall not be to you other elohim upon My Face. 8 You shall not make for yourself a carved image of any form, that is in the heavens from above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters from under the earth: 9 You shall not bow yourself to them, and you shall not serve them: for I, hwhy, your Elohim, am a Jealous El, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, and upon the thirds, and upon the fourths of them toward hating Me, 10 and making mercy to thousands toward those loving Me and to keep My Commandments.

11 You shall not take the Name of ta-hwhy your Elohim for vanity : for hwhy will not hold guiltless ta whoever takes ta-His name for vanity.

12 Shall keep ta-the Shabbath day to sanctify him, as which hwhy, your Elohim, had commanded. 13 Six days you shall labor, and shall do all of your work: 14 And the seventh day shall be a Shabbath to hwhy, your Elohim: you shall not do any work, you, and your son, and your daughter, and your male servant, and your female servant, and your ox, and your donkey, and any of your animals, and your stranger that is in your gates; by that, your male servant and your female servant, as you, shall rest. 15 And you will remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and hwhy, your Elohim, brought you from there on a Strong Hand and on an Outstretched Arm: upon thus, hwhy, your Elohim, commanded you to keep the Shabbath day.

16 Honor ta-your father and ta-your mother, as which hwhy, your Elohim, commanded you; by that, your days, they shall be lenghtened, and by that, shall be well to you upon the ground which hwhy, your Elohim, is giving to you.

17 You shall not murder.

18 You shall not commit adultery.

19 You shall not steal.

20 And you shall not testify against your neighbor of a false witness.

21 You shall not lust the wife of your neighbor, and you shall not lust the house of your neighbor, his field, and his male servant, and his female servant, his ox, and his donkey, and all that is to your neighbor.

22
hwhy spoke ta-these Words to all of your Assembly on the mountain from the midst of the Fire, the Cloud, and the gloom, of a Great Voice: and did not add. And wrote them upon two tablets of stones, and gave them to me. 23 And ta-the Voice was in your hearing from the midst of the Darkness, and the mountain was burning in the Fire, and you approached to me, calling the heads of your tribes, and your elders; 24 And you said, Behold, hwhy, our Elohim, showed us ta-His Glory and ta-His Greatness, and we have heard ta-His Voice from the midst of the Fire: this day, we have seen that Elohim spoke with ta-the adam (mankind), and lived. 25 And now, to why shall we die? For shall this great Fire, she should consume us?: If we are again to hear ta-the Voice of hwhy, our Elohim, more, and we shall die. 26 For who is of all flesh, who has heard the Voice of the Living Elohim speaking from the midst of the Fire, as we have, and lived? 27 Draw you near, and hear ta all that hwhy, our Elohim, shall say: and you, you shall speak to us of ta all that hwhy, our Elohim, shall speak to you; and we will hear, and we will do. 28 And hwhy heard ta-the voice of your words, in your speaking to me; and hwhy said to me, I have heard ta-the voice of the words of this People which they spoke to you: all that they spoke, they were good. 29 Who shall give, and be their hearts of this to them, to fear Me, and to keep ta-all My Commandments all the days, by that, shall be well to them, and to their sons for ages? 30 Go, say to them, Return by yourselves to your tents. 31 And you, stand here with Me, and I will speak to you ta all the Commandments, and the Statutes, and the Judgments, which you shall teach them, and they will do in the land which I am giving to them to possess her. 32 And you shall observe to do as which hwhy, your Elohim, commanded you: you shall not turn rightward or leftward. 33 You shall walk in all the ways which hwhy, your Elohim, commanded you, by that, you will live and shall be good to you, and you will lengthen your days in the land which you shall possess.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verse two

hwhy, our Elohim, cut a Covenant with us in Horeb, 3 hwhy did not cut ta-this Covenant with ta-our fathers, but with us, we are these here today, all of us alive.

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that the Hebrew word for covenant is "b'reeth"- Bet, Resh, Yod, Tav (tyrb), but looking at the word in the Paleo-Hebrew pictoral form, this is the defintion of the letters:

Bet: A house
Resh: A head
Yod: A nail
Tav: A cross

Put the picture letters together they say a phrase

"From the house was a head that was nailed to the cross"

This is a pictoral representaion and story of Yeshua, who is "the Covenant" that came down from the house of the Kingdom of Heaven, who was part of the Godhead, and was nailed to the cross. If we removed the Covenant manifested, by saying, "The Torah was done away with", we are kidding ourselves. Looking at this verse from the King James Version of the apostle Paul's letter to the assembly in Rome

Romans 10:4 For the Messiah is the end of the Torah for righteousness to every one that believeth.

Mark Biltz noted that this was wrongly translated. And revealed this

Looking at the word END

The Greek word for end is "telos" (teloj). It is fron Strong's concordance number 5056, and its definition

From a primary word τέλλω tellō (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly the point aimed at as a limit, that is, (by implication) the conclusion of an act or state (termination [literally, figuratively or indefinitely], result [immediate, ultimate or prophetic], purpose); specifically an impost or levy (as paid): - + continual, custom, end (-ing), finally, uttermost. Compare G5411.

What Mark Biltz was revealing to us, is the correct translation should be "goal". This is what this verse should be translated

Romans 10:4 For the Messiah is the goal of the Torah for righteousness to every one that believeth.

because Yeshua said to the Jews, in the Gospel of John

John 5:45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me: for he wrote of Me. 47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe My Words?

We have to look to Yeshua, "the Goal" of the Torah, which has been wrongly mislead by some pastors in the Christian churches by teaching "Replacement Theology", and preaching that the Torah was done away with, and the mantle was taken away from the Jews, who has the Torah, to the church. This is empatically wrong, and needs to be corrected. Here is the matter. Yes, we cannot observe the Torah by itself, by ourselves, for the sake of the Torah, in our own strength, because we would fail in our own will power. But when we receive Yeshua, "the Living Torah" made flesh, as our Lord and Savior, He is the one who gives us strength via the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit) to help us follow and honor the Torah, through Yeshua the Messiah, the "Goal" of the Torah, as a means to please Him and His Word, as well as pleasing Yeshua as the Living Word in our hearts. Thank you Mark.

This chapter is similar to Exodus chapter twenty in the Torah portion of Yithro, and I made exhaustive commentaries and explanations there. You will not be dissapointed in the commentaries of the Ten Words (Commandments). You can access the Torah portion Yithro by clicking on the link below to get to the webpage.

TORAH PORTION YITHRO




Verse twenty nine

29 Who shall give, and be their hearts of this to them, to fear Me, and to keep ta-all My Commandments all the days, by that, shall be well to them, and to their sons for ages?

This is how the King James Version translates this verse:

(KJV) Deuteronomy 5:29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

In my translation, it implies "who" will give and be their hearts to them. The Hebrew word for who is "mee"- Mem, Yod (
ym), as in "Mi kamocha" (who is like you). In my opinion, this would make sense, because it would be implied by the Prophet Jeremiah in his book

Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, saith hwhy, that I will make a New Covenant with the House of Israel, and with the House of Judah: 32 Not according to the Covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which My Covenant they brake, although I was an Husband unto them, saith hwhy: 33 But this shall be the Covenant that I will make with the House of Israel; After those days, saith hwhy, I will put My Torah in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be for Elohim, and they shall be My People. 34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know hwhy: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith hwhy: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

This is Yeshua, the New Covenant, who is also the Living Word, the Living Torah, who lives in our hearts as believers in the Messiah. Yeshua followed the Torah and He is the One gave of Himself and be of our hearts, and keeping the Commandments through us always, that it might be well with us and our children for ages.

Verse thirty two 

32 And you shall observe to do as which hwhy, your Elohim, commanded you: you shall not turn rightward or leftward.

hwhy spoke this to Joshua in the book of Joshua

Joshua 1:7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the Torah, which Moses, My servant, commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest. 8 This book of the Torah shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

King Solomon also based this Torah verse in the book of Proverbs

Proverbs 4:26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. 27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

We as belivers in the Messiah are not to turn our feet either to the right or to the left in our walk with Yeshua.







CHAPTER 6

Deuteronomy 6:1-25

Deu 6:1 And these are the Commandments, the Statutes, and the Judgments, which 
hwhy, your Elohim, commanded to teach you to do in the land which you are going over there there to possess her: 2 by that, you shall fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, to keep ta-all of His Statutes and His Commandments, which I commanded you, you, and your son, and the son of your son, all the days of your life; and by that, your days shall be lenghtened. 3 And you shall hear, Israel, and you shall observe to do; that shall be good to you, and that, you will increase much, as which hwhy, Elohim of your fathers, has spoken to you, in the land flowing with milk and honey.

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

10 And shall be, when 
hwhy, your Elohim, shall bring you to the land which was sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to you great and goodly cities which you have not built, 11 and houses full of all goodness which you have not filled, and dugged wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant; and you shall eat, and you shall be satisfied;

12 You be aware, lest you forget 
ta-hwhy, who brought you from the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery. 13 You shall fear ta-hwhy, your Elohim, and Him you shall serve, and you shall swear on His Name. 14 You shall not go after other elohim, from the elohim of the peoples which are around you; 15 for hwhy, your Elohim, in your midst is a Jealous El, lest the Anger of hwhy, your Elohim, shall glow against you, and destroy you from upon the face of the ground.

16 You shall not tempt 
ta-hwhy, your Elohim, as which you had tempted in the Massah. 17 Keeping, you shall keep ta-the Commandments of hwhy your Elohim, and His Testimonies, and His Statutes, which had commanded you. 18 And you shall do the rightness and the goodness in the Eyes of hwhy: by that, shall be good to you, and you will go in, and you will possess ta-the good land which hwhy swore to your fathers, 19 to drive out ta-all of your enemies from your faces, as which hwhy had spoken. 20 When your son asks after you, to say, What are the Testimonies, and the Statutes, and the Judgments, which hwhy, our Elohim, commanded you? 21 And you shall say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh, in Egypt; and hwhy brought us out Egypt on a Strong Hand: 22 and hwhy gave signs and great and evil wonders in Egypt, against Pharaoh, and aginst all of his house, to our eyes: 23 and brought us out from there, by that, to bring us, to give to us ta-the land which was sworn to our fathers. 24 And hwhy commanded us to do ta-all these Statutes, to fear ta-hwhy, our Elohim, for is good to us all of the days, to keep us alive, as this day, 25 and righteousness, she shall be for us, when we observe to do ta-all these Commandments toward the Face of hwhy, our Elohim, as which was commanded us.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verses four and five

4 Hear, Israel: hwhy our Elohim is One hwhy: 5 and you shall love ta-hwhy, your Elohim, in all if your heart, and in all of your soul, and in all of your might.

It emphasizes that He is both Elohim and One, or United.

Rico Cortes, Brad Scott, Bill Cloud, Eddie Chumney, Monte Judah, Mark Biltz, and other Messianic/Hebraic Roots teachers have revealed the Hebrew text of verse four have two enlarged Hebrew letters

Deuteronomy 6 4

Those two Hebrew letters are Ayin and Dalet. Put the two letters together and it makes the word "ahd" (
de), and it translates as "witness". This witness is "Yeshua".


David showed his love for 
hwhy, and it is noted in the book of Psalms

Psalms 18:1 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of 
hwhy, who spake unto hwhy ta-the words of this song in the day that hwhy delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love Thee, hwhy, my Strength.

When I hear the Messianic congregations sing the "Shema" every Shabbath. I always expected them to sing verse five, but instead they sing "Barookh sheym k'vod, malkhooto, l'olam va'eyd". When they sing the second part, I replace it with verse five.



Verse eight

8 And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes,

This compares with the account in the Torah portion of Bo, in the book of Exodus

Exodus 13:8 And you shall tell to your son in that day, to say, In account, hwhy did this for me in my coming out from Egypt. 9 And shall be to you for a Sign upon your hand, and for a Memorial between your eyes, by that, the Torah of hwhy, she will be in your mouth: for on a strong hand, hwhy brought you out from Egypt. 10 And you shall keep ta-this Statute of her Appointed Times from days to days.

The reason hwhy said this, because it is an act of our protection, including us in Messiah, from the enemy, HaSatan. This was applied in the Exodus passage regarding Passover. hwhy mentions how HaSatan is going to "countefeit" the sign on the hand and a Memorial as frontlets between the eyes, and it is noted by the apostle John, in the book of Revelation

Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from the heavens on the earth in the sight of men, 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

HaSatan "counterfeited" Yeshua as the "Counterfeit passover lamb", as noted in this Revelation passage, but HaSatan did this, because he knew that it would result in their eternal deaths. It is my humble opinion that the mark will be either a chip, a tattoo, or a patch that could be placed outside or inside the hand or the forehead. I will be exampling more of this shortly.

In one aspect, this revelation has become more aware that the "World Wide Web" is abreviated as "www", but in the Hebrew those letters are "Vav, Vav, Vav". The number of the Hebrew letter Vav is the number "six", which replacing the Hebrew letter would be "Six, Six, Six".

Brad Scott of Wildbrach Ministry noted the Six, Six, Six issue, that in the Greek text where it says "six, six, six", it is three Greek letters: Khai, Xzee, and Stigma

xcj

Brad Scott of Wildbrach Ministry and Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries noted that based on the Hebrew, the two outer letters make up one word on the outside, while the letters in the middle make up the account of the inner meaning of that word. A good example of this is Pharaoh's name himself, spelled Peh, Resh, Ayin, Heh (herp). Brad Scott noted by taking the two outer Hebrew letters of Pharaoh's name and we get "Peh" (hp), which is translated as "mouth". Brad Scott and Bill Cloud continues by taking the two Hebrew letters inside, and it makes the word "Ra" (er), and this word is commonly translated as "evil". By that, the the Hebrew name of Pharaoh is translated as "the Mouth of Evil". In this case, of these three Greek letters, it will be a little different calculation. Brad Scott revealed that the two outer letters, Khai and Stigma (x j) is the first and last letters for the Greek version of the name of Messiah which is "Christos" (xristoj). The Greek word below shows the two Greek outer letters colored in green

xristoj


Brad continues noting that the middle letter "Xzee" (
c) is a pictorial representation of a "serpent standing upright". It is colored it in red below

c


Brad stated that what these three letters together are saying is that HaSatan, "the Serpent" will portray himself as "the False Messiah", or "the Anti-Messiah", or as Yeshua would most likely call "HaSatan", based on the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

This is the result of the three Greek letters together with the same colors

Looking at the two elements in this week's Torah portion passage which
hwhy said to place them:

THE RIGHT HAND

Continuing, adding my two cents, K'vod L'
hwhy, is that the mark of the beast is to be placed on the hand, which the "right hand" representing the "strong hand", like Yeshua sitting at the right hand of the Father, as Yeshua noted in the Gospel of Matthew

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.

HaSatan wants to imitate that to be "the Counterfeit Right Hand" or "the False Oath" for a person's right hand, to the world who does not believe in the Messiah, during the Seven Years Tribulation, by taking away their "strength" and submitting their strength to HaSatan.


BETWEEN THE EYES

 Also, the memorial between the eyes is where our "spiritual eye", also known as our "single eye" is located. When HaSatan wants the mark to optionally be placed on the forehead, HaSatan wants it to cover the spiritual single eye, because that is where the spiritual single eye is located. This act will hinder one's spiritual single eye from discerning and seeing the spiritual truth regarding the true Messiah, and will cause one's spiritual single eye to be in submission to HaSatan as well.

This mark of the beast will be used in financial transactions, whether at stores or online. Noting this by the apostle Paul in his letter to the assembly in

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

The increase in knowledge is the "technology" that we have seen booming since the 1990s, in which the world has now become a dominiant "techno-society" instead of an agricultural society that had existed in human history.

Today, a computer has "touch screens". I would not be surprised that the next step will be that monitors will be able to be programmed to scan the mark of the beast on their forehead (between the eyes) or the right hand, to make a financial transaction without going through the process without typing all the person's card information and their personal information. Just show the mark, and it will be sufficient.


Just recently, in December 2015, the banking card industry has just added a "chip" to their cards. It is a thin plated chip, which they say, is to provide more security, and people are now required to carry these bank cards. This is just "one step shy" to putting a "chip" on humans- most likely on the right hand or on the forehead. This technology has gone stratospherically through the roof, at a lightning speed rate. It will not be long before it is required on humans.

In 2016, a national news network did a story on national news in which a company has the ability to store health records in computer chips, and in New York City, some people have now implanted those chips with their health records "in their hand". To me, it proves to us that we are nearing the sunset to start the Seven Years Tribulation.

In July of 2017, (just within the last two weeks as I noted this) a United States company called Three Sqare Market in Wisconsin became the first to offer an option for their employees to have the micro chip in their hands to purchase in the company's break room. The micro chip has already been applied in western European countries. It won't be long before it will be "mandatory" for everyone to have this "techno-mark" of the beast, which in my opinion is a robotic image of the first beast.

It is my humble opionion that the second beast that is given life is a robot.

During the Seven Years Tribulation period, there will be 144,000 people who will bear the seal of 
hwhy, which is noted in the apostle John's book of Revelation

Revelation 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living Elohim: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, 3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our Elohim in their foreheads. 4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the Children of Israel.

In my humble opinion, the 144,000 marked during the seven years are not the current believers alive on the earth, because there are more than 144,000 believers who are currently alive on the earth.

This is what happens to those who take on the mark of the beast during the Seven Years Tribulation, which is noted in the apostle John's book of Revelation

Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worships the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, 10 The same shall drink of the Wine of the Wrath of hwhy, which is poured out without mixture into the Cup of His Indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

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

Pray that those who are left on the earth, especially family members, who are smart enough to not take this mark when this period begins.



Verse nine

9 and you shall write them upon the doorposts on your house, and on your gates.

Making note of this, there is nothing wrong having a Mezuzoth item attached to the entrance frame, but I have a question for those who do: "Is the Biblical text exposed for everyone to see"? I expect the answer would be no. When Moses says to "write" it "on" the doorposts and gates, he meant to write the text for everyone coming to your homes to see it as well. The Mezuzoth should be added as an ornament accessory to the door, and I accept that, but do not let that be the main text, because the text is hidden "inside" and is not visible. My Messianic brothers and sisters, we need to take time to write Hebrew text, whether it is the Shema, and/or the Aaronic Blessing, and/or any scripture verse for edification, but write it. It is the Commandment. I have already did it on the door post entrance to my home.



Verses ten and eleven

10 And shall be, when hwhy, your Elohim, shall bring you to the land which was sworn to your fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give to you great and goodly cities which you have not built, 11 and houses full of all goodness which you have not filled, and dugged wells which you did not dig, vineyards and olive trees which you did not plant; and you shall eat, and you shall be satisfied;

Would it be nice for us to return to the land all provided for us like it was for the Israelites back then. Will this be the same for us in the future? This is what the apostle John noted in the book of Revelation

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the assembly in Philadelphia write; These things saith He that is holy, He that is True, He that hath the Key of David, He that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; 8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept My Word, and hast not denied My Name. 9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. 10 Because thou hast kept the Word of My Patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. 11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. 12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of My Elohim, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the Name of My Elohim, and the Name of the city of My Elohim, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of the heavens from My Elohim: and I will write upon him My New Name.

Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heavens and a new earth: for the first heavens and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the Holy City, new Jerusalem, coming down from 
hwhy out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of hwhy is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be His People, and hwhy Himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim. 4 And hwhy shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. 5 And He that sat upon the Throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these Words are True and Faithful. 6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Aleph (Alpha) and Tav (Omega), the Beginning and the End. I will give unto him that is athirst of the Fountain of the Water of Life freely. 7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be My son. 8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 9 And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the Bride, the Lamb's Wife. 10 And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that Great City, the Holy Jerusalem, descending out of Heaven from hwhy, 11 Having the Glory of hwhy: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; 12 And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the Children of Israel: 13 On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates. 14 And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb. 15 And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the City, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof. 16 And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the City with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal. 17 And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel. 18 And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the City was pure gold, like unto clear glass. 19 And the foundations of the wall of the City were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; 20 The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. 21 And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the City was pure gold, as it were transparent glass. 22 And I saw no Temple therein: for hwhy El Shaddai and the Lamb are the Temple of it. 23 And the City had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the Glory of hwhy did lighten it, and the Lamb is the Light thereof. 24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the Light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. 25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there. 26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it. 27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's Book of Life.

In the end times, the answer is yes. All the luxuries and accomodations are included in this "eternal five star home".



Verse sixteen

16 You shall not tempt ta-hwhy, your Elohim, as which you had tempted in the Massah.

 This was the very Torah portion verse Yeshua used against HaSatan in the wilderness, which is noted in the Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 4:7 Then the devil taketh Him up into the Holy City, and setteth Him on a pinnacle of the Temple, 6 And saith unto Him, If Thou be the Son of Elohim, cast Thyself down: for it is written, He shall give His angels charge concerning Thee: and in their hands they shall bear Thee up, lest at any time Thou dash Thy Foot against a stone. 7 Yeshua said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt hwhy, thy Elohim.

Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries noted that HaSatan was also tempting him by using scripture, but that was not the complete context of the Word. This is the source HaSatan used. It is noted from the book of Psalms

Psalms 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 14 Because He hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My Name.

HaSatan did not want to say to Yeshua the latter part of the text, because part of it refers to Yeshua trampling on HaSatan, which goes back to the Torah portion of B'reyshith, in the book of Genesis

Genesis 3:15 And I will set enmity between you and between the woman, and between your seed and between her seed; he shall bruise you to the head, and you shall bruise him to the heel.

We are thankful as believers in the Messiah that we can come to our Heavenly Father that if we had tempted Him at all, and fell into it, we can ask for His forgiveness.

Verse twenty

20 When your son asks after you, to say, What are the Testimonies, and the Statutes, and the Judgments, which hwhy, our Elohim, commanded you?

This is another account that Moses mentioned to the parents. If their sons ask them a question. The other times were in relevance to the Passover. In this case it is the question is why they have to keep the Commandments, the Statutes and the Judgments of 
hwhy, their Elohim. The common way a parent can answer is, "because I said so". But the answer Moses told them to answer is based on the First Word (Commandment). The purpose of the answer is to bring the sons to "believe" in hwhy their Elohim in who He is and what He did for them- the first and second parts of the First Word (Commandment).



Verses twenty-one and twenty two

21 And you shall say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh, in Egypt; and hwhy brought us out Egypt on a Strong Hand: 22 and hwhy gave signs and great and evil wonders in Egypt, against Pharaoh, and aginst all of his house, to our eyes:

 It says that "we" were slaves in Egypt, and in verse twenty two that He brought "us" from there. This didn't just applied to that generation, but in "every generation". How could "we" have been slaves from Egypt when "we" were not there? Because "we" were spiritually in bondage to the Egyptian world, and Egypt is the symbol of the world. In other words, 
hwhy commanded the fathers to say it this way, so that it would be applied to "every generation". Those from every generation would know that they are physically, symbolically and spiritually delivered from the world's bondage.

Indirectly related, Yeshua noted to His disciples and the Heavenly Father that the world hates them because they hated Him, and it is noted in the Gospel of John

John 15:18 If the world hates you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.


John 17:12 While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy Name: those that Thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13 And now come I to Thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have My joy fulfilled in themselves. 14 I have given them Thy Word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15 I pray not that Thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that Thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Sanctify them through Thy Truth: Thy Word is Truth.

We as believers in the Messiah know that our Egypt is the world. We have been delivered from the world. The Jews during Yeshua's time submitted to the Roman Empire who was of the world. The Jewish leaders revealed their allegience to the world, which is noted in the Gospel of John

John 19:14 And it was the preparation of the Passover, and about the sixth hour: and he saith unto the Jews, Behold your King! 15 But they cried out, Away with Him, away with Him, crucify Him. Pilate saith unto them, Shall I crucify your King? The Chief Priests answered, We have no king but Caesar.

If the Jews submitted to Yeshua, it would have been a different turnout, but they didn't. Yeshua had to go through the process to redeem the world from sin and death, including the lost sheep of the Ten Northern Tribes of Israel who were exiled into the nations,
as well as the rest of the world.

Maybe indirectly related, ending this chapter, noting the fruitness of the sons, noted in the book of Psalms

Psalms 128:1 A Song of Ascents. Blessed are all that fearing hwhy; walking in His ways. 2 Your hands shall toil, for you shall eat of your happiness, and be well. 3 Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine among the sides of your house: Your sons like olive plants around your table. 4 Behold, for thus shall be blessed the mighty man fearing hwhy. 5 hwhy shall bless you from Zion: and see among the goodness of Jerusalem all the days of your life. 6 And see the sons of your sons peace upon Israel.







CHAPTER 7

Deuteronomy 7:1-11

Deu 7:1 When 
hwhy, your Elohim, shall bring you to the land which you are going there to possess her, and shall drive out many nations from your face, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations many and mightier than you; 2 And hwhy, your Elohim, gives them to your face; and you shall strike them, destroying, you shall destroy them; you shall not cut to them a covenant, and you shall not show them mercy: 3 And you shall not join among them; you shall not give your daughter to his son, and you shall not take his daughter for your son, 4 for ta-your son will turn from following Me, and they will serve other elohim: and the Anger of hwhy will glow against you, and you shall destroy hastily. 5 For but thus, you shall do to them; you shall break their altars, you shall shatter their standing idols, and you shall cut down their asherah groves, and you shall burn their cast images in the fire. 6 For you are a Holy People to hwhy, your Elohim: hwhy, your Elohim, has chosen among you to be to Him for a People, a Special Treasure, from all the peoples that are upon the face of the ground, 7 was not from your many than all the peoples hwhy joined on you and chose on you; for you were the fewer than all the peoples: 8 For hwhy is love to you, and He keeps ta-the Oath which was sworn to your fathers. hwhy has brought you on a strong hand, and redeemed you from the house of slaves, from the hand of Pharaoh, King of Egypt, 9 and you shall know that hwhy, your Elohim, He is The Elohim, the Faithful El, keeping the Covenant and the Mercy to the ones loving Him and to the ones keeping His Commandments for a thousand generations; 10 And repaying to the ones hating Him toward his face, to destroy him: shall not be slack to Him the one hating Him, shall repay to him to His Face. 11 And you shall keep ta-the Commandments, and ta-the Statutes, and ta-the Judgments, which I am commanding you today, to do them.


(Note: Not all verses will have comments)


Verse one

1 When hwhy, your Elohim, shall bring you to the land which you are going there to possess her, and shall drive out many nations from your face, the Hittite, and the Girgashite, and the Amorite, and the Canaanite, and the Perizzite, and the Hivite, and the Jebusite, seven nations many and mightier than you;

The seven Canaanite tribes could be called symbols of the seven "Anti-Lights" of the Menorah.


Looking at each of the following Canaanite tribal names:

HITTITE

Putting them in a list form based on their characteristics, this is what they display:

Girgashite: Mass Of Destructive Strangers
Amorite: Demander
Canaanite: Subduer
Perizzite: Separater (Divider)
Hivite: Showoff (of The Mouth)
Jebusite: Polluter (Profaner)

All of these tribes have negative traits
attached to their identities. The Israelites were to destroy each of these Canaanite tribes bearing these negativie characteristics. We as believers in the Messiah today have to deal with these spiritual seven negative charateristics in our spiritual lives, and we need to destroy them with the help of Yeshua, through the Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit).

hwhy Kl bdk



Verses two through five

2 And hwhy, your Elohim, gives them to your face; and you shall strike them, destroying, you shall destroy them; you shall not cut to them a covenant, and you shall not show them mercy: 3 And you shall not join among them; you shall not give your daughter to his son, and you shall not take his daughter for your son, 4 for ta-your son will turn from following Me, and they will serve other elohim: and the Anger of hwhy will glow against you, and you shall destroy hastily. 5 For but thus, you shall do to them; you shall break their altars, you shall shatter their standing idols, and you shall cut down their asherah groves, and you shall burn their cast images in the fire.

hwhy brings forth these four things not to do with the Canaanite nations:

ONE: NOT TO MAKE COVENANT WITH THEM

One instance that did not follow this premise was in the book of Joshua.  Joshua met a couple of the Gibeonites, who were of the Hivites, who pretended to be travelers who traveled a long journey to make a league with Joshua and the Israelites, because of all that 
hwhy did for Israel. Joshua made a covenant with them by not killing them and sealed the covenant by eating food with them. The eating of the food between them was called "the Food Covenant". When Joshua found out they were Canaanites, he could not kill them because of that Food Covenant, and as a result, those Hivites were made servants to the Israelites.

The most popular Torah example is in the Torah portion of Balak, in the book of Numbers, when the Midianite women were prostituting themselves to the Israelites, and most of the tribe of Simeon got involved by their sexual relations with them, by bowing down to their elohim, and partaking of their Food Covenant. When they took the Food Covenant, they sealed their covenant with the Midianites, and their elohim. That Food Covenant cost them their lives. There are other examples in the Tanakh.

It could have been also in the Brith Khadashah, (the New Covenant). The apostle Paul could have based this premise in this week's Torah portion passage, by writing to the brethren to not to eat food sacrificed to idols. It is noted in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

1 Coritinthians 10:27 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 the Lord's, and the fullness thereof:

If a believer ate the food sacrificed to idols, that believer would have made a Food Covenant with the people who sacrificed it, and the idol to which it was dedicated. We need to be careful not to partake from those who did this, because they might want to make a league and covenant with us.


TWO: NOT TO SHOW MERCY TO THEM

An example of this was the mistake Jacob made to the men of Shechem after her daughter, Dinah, was raped by the prince of Shechem. Instead of destroying him, he showed mercy to him by agreeing to let him to marry his daughter. The men of Shechem had ulterior motives to intermarry Jacob's family to get his prosperity, causing the chosen nation to be no different than the world. Only 
hwhy knew what would have happened if Simeon and Levi did not kill the Hivites.

The opposite example is, is when the Northern Kingdom of Israel followed after the nations' elohim, which is noted in the book of the prophet Hosea

Hosea 1:1 The Word of hwhy that came unto Hosea, the son of Beeri, in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, King of Israel. 2 The beginning of the Word of hwhy by Hosea. And hwhy said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from hwhy. 3 So he went and took ta-Gomer, daughter of Diblaim; which conceived, and bare him a son. 4 And hwhy said unto him, Call his name Jezreel; for yet a little while, and I will avenge ta-the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu, and will cause to cease the kingdom of the House of Israel. 5 And it shall come to pass at that day, that I will break ta-the bow of Israel in the valley of Jezreel. 6 And she conceived again, and bare a daughter. And said unto him, Call her name Lo Ruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon ta-the house of Israel; but I will utterly take them away.

Israel received no mercy from hwhy, because they rebelled against hwhy, and became involved with the nations. Part of their involvment was their act was being merciful to the nations, and hwhy judged them for rejecting Him.


THREE: NOT TO INTERMARRY WITH THEM

This is what Bill Cloud of Shoreshim Ministries calls it "Mixing the holy with the profane". The Israelites were not to keep the Canaanites alive nor to mingle with them, like the men of Shechem wanted to do with Jacob's daughter and their sons with their daughters and vice versa, as mentioned above. Esau did that very thing by marrying two Canaanite women, and later heard Isaac, his father, blessing Jacob before leaving for Padan Aram to not marry the Canaanite women.

Another account of this matter occurred during the Greek occupation of Israel around 186 BC in the story of the Maccabees, where Antiochus, leader of Israel and the region at the time, were forcing the Jewish people to "intermingle" with the Greek's
and culture, and adding insult to injury by defiling the Temple of hwhy. But the Maccabees and the Jews defeated Antiocus and his men in time, reclaimed the Temple, and cleansed it.

Another example was during the Southern House of Judah's return to the Holy Land led by Ezra, the Scribe. He was informed by the Priests who were left behind in the Holy Land that they had intermarried with foreign wives, and Ezra said to them to repent, and to get rid of their foreign wives, and to purify themselves from their sins from intermingling with them.


This is also an issue we are experiencing today. Tony Robinson of Restoration of Torah Ministries spoke on this at a Hanukkah seminar in Tennessee a couple of years ago, warning the young people at the seminar to be careful that they do not mingle with the culture of the world of today, and this applies to us as well. The apostle Paul noted this in his letter to the assembly in Corinth

2 Corinthians 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Messiah with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the Temple of hwhy with idols? for ye are the Temple of the Living Elohim; as hwhy hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their Elohim, and they shall be My People. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith hwhy, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be My sons and daughters, saith hwhy Shaddai.

Indirectly related, look at what has been happening to our agriculture society. Brad Scott of Wildbrach Ministry noted that about fifty years ago our agriculture farming force was about fifty percent, but today it is only at "one percent". This is due mainly to the comglomerate agricultural industrial empires, comparable to the Rockefeller's oil industry, by depleting the little and local farmers and taking over the agricultural system with just a controlling elite few. And now, they have been "playing elohim" by genetically modifying (known as GMO/GMI/GE), or one could say "intermingling", some major foods to save their crops from ailments and pestilence intrusion, going against the natural creation of 
hwhy's Hand, mainly for the sake of "preservation", which is also an act of "intermingling", as well as controlling the food through patents with the changing of the food's natural content, hence creating a "monopoly" by claiming rights to these foods as well as the industry, thus controlling the food industry. What they have been doing are "Anti-Messiah" acts, as well as going against the "Non-GMO" Word of hwhy., as well as the "Non-GMO" Messiah.


FOUR: DESTROY THEIR IDOLS AND IMAGES AND THEIR PAGAN ELOHIM

Through the Isrealite's history, they had periods of destroying idols, and they had periods where they made idols. Later, in the book of Hosea, the Northern Kingdom of the Ten Tribes of Israel was divorced from 
hwhy and went into the nations for about 2730 years. The Southern Kingdom of Judah was dispersed twice from the land until the Southern House became the State of Israel in 1948. The time for the Northern House of the Lost Ten Tribes of Israel to return to the land has yet to be fulfilled, and that can only be done through Yeshua, the Messiah, because those of the descendants of the Ten Tribes, as well as those of the mixed multitude who were adopted and mingled with them, were naturally divorced from hwhy around 722 BC. Yeshua made the ability for the past 2,000 years for the Ten Tribes, as well as the Southern House and the rest of the world, to be remarried to Him, but as a New Husband, or "the Renewed Husband", because Yeshua had to represent the first husband, hwhy, to die. By that, we can be remarried, but in a redeemed matter through Yeshua, hwhy made Flesh, who was resurrected from the dead, to be a new Bridegroom for us as Brides in Messiah.

If we have idols in our house of any sorts today, we need to get rid of them. In some cases it is spiritual, and some cases, physical items. We need to pray to our Heavenly Father to show us if we have anything we are not supposed to have in our homes.




Verse seven

7 was not from your many than all the peoples hwhy joined on you and chose on you; for you were the fewer than all the peoples:

They were the fewest in number of nations in the world at that time, but hwhy chose them.

Indirectly related, one person became king because his tribe was fewest in number, and it is noted in the book of the prophet Samuel

1 Samuel 9:15 Now hwhy had told Samuel ta-in his ear a day before Saul came, saying, 16 To morrow about this time I will send thee a man out of the land of Benjamin, and thou shalt anoint him to be Captain over My People Israel, that he may save ta-My People out of the hand of the Philistines: for I have looked upon ta-My People, because their cry is come unto Me. 17 And when Samuel saw ta-Saul, hwhy said unto him, Behold the man whom I spake to thee of! this same shall reign over My People. 18 Then Saul drew near to ta-Samuel in the gate, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, where the seer's house is. 19 And Samuel answered ta-Saul, and said, I am the seer: go up before me unto the high place; for ye shall eat with me to day, and to morrow I will let thee go, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart. 20 And as for thine asses that were lost three days ago, set not ta-thy heart on them; for they are found. And on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on thee, and on all thy father's house? 21 And Saul answered and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou so to me?

Though Saul was the least of all families of Benjamin, he became Israel's first king.

We believers in the Messiah are few in number in today's society, because of the major decline of the righteous fabric thanks to the United States Supreme Court decisions in 1962 to remove the Bible and prayer out of the school system.



Verse eight

8 For hwhy is love to you, and He keeps ta-the Oath which was sworn to your fathers. hwhy has brought you on a strong hand, and redeemed you from the house of slaves, from the hand of Pharaoh, King of Egypt,

hwhy
, our Heavenly Father, loves us and He chose us, because He still keeps the oath to this very day, through Yeshua the Messiah, and keeps it through us by His Ruakh HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit). Yeshua said this in the Gospel of John

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen Me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in My Name, He may give it you.

John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

 If we love our Heavenly Father, we will keep His Words (Commandments) in Yeshua's name.


This week's Torah portion verse is applied today, as the apostle John noted in his epistle

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. hwhy is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in hwhy, and hwhy in him.

Amen John.



Verse nine

9 and you shall know that hwhy, your Elohim, He is The Elohim, the Faithful El, keeping the Covenant and the Mercy to the ones loving Him and to the ones keeping His Commandments for a thousand generations;

Mankind has been existing on this earth for roughly 120 generations. There are still about 880 generations left. In other words, it is going to exist for thousands of years more, if not eternity.



Through this week's Torah portion, Moses have been repeating to the Israelites seven major things:

1: The First Word (Commandment).
2: The Second Word (Commandment).
3: Not to forget 
hwhy, their Elohim.
4: Going to the land which they shall possess her.
5: To guard, keep, or observe- from the Hebrew word "shema".
6: His Covenant.
7: In many words, from a play on Tom Cruise's Movie Jerry Maguire, "Love Me to love you".



In the Hebrew text of this week's Torah portion, there are Hebrew grammatic words that have unusual pronouns that were not in previous Torah portions as often as in this Torah portion. There are two Hebrew pronouns used in this portion:

The 'Shoorek Vav-Nun Sophit paragogic' Pronoun

 Khurik Vav-Nun Sophit

and the 'Kibbuts-Nun Sophit paragogic' Pronoun

Kibbuts-Nun Sophit

They are both pronounced as "oon" and are used in the future verb tense.

This is page fourteen from James Saxias- A Manual Hebrew Grammar for the Use of Beginners (1833). I highlighted the information in three places relating to this Hebrew grammar issue

Page 14

There are Hebrew words in this week's Torah portion that contain these future pronoun verbs. The purpose of this is to help you understand this pronoun and how it is used in the Hebrew text.

For those who don't have the Hebrew scriptures, you can get them on "e-sword" software, and "theWord" software websites, both have the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon from Jeff Benner of Ancient Hebrew Research Center. They are free to download on your computer, but you will have to separately download the Hebrew bibles from their download section. They can be found on the "download" file on the "e-sword" program, and the "help" file on "theWord" program.

Here are the links to their website:

Ending the Torah portion from the words of Yeshua from the Gospels in the book of John

John 14:15 If ye love me, keep My Commandments.



That ends this week's Torah portion commentary.
