The Book of Genesis/Berĕshith

Genesis 1:2

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

YAHUSHUA walks on water.

YAHUSHUA was trying to show them who HE was.  HE was trying to show them whose spirit had moved over the surface of the waters.

Translation Difference

'And the earth came to be formless and empty, and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Elohim was moving on the face of the waters.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

- Or the earth became.

'And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Ruach of Elohim moved upon the face of the mayim.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

'and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of Elohim moving gently on the face of the waters,'  (Hebraic Roots Bible)

'The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of Elohim was moving over the surface of the waters.'  (Interlinear Genesis)

Genesis 1:6

"And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"And Elohim said, "Let an expanse come to be in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

"And Elohim said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the mayim, and let it divide the mayim from the mayim."  (The Restoration Scriptures)

"Then Elohim said, "Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate between the waters and the waters.""  (Interlinear Genesis)

Genesis 1:14

"And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:"  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"And Elohim said, "Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night and let them be for signs and appointed times and for days and years."  (The Besorah Yahusha)

The appointed-times and years are determined by lights in the sky (Gen 1:14-15). In Lev 23 the appointed-times are defined using the elements of the calendar (the first month, counting months, counting days, and counting the cycle of the Sabbath). Thus the elements of the calendar are determined by the lights in the sky. Gen 1:14-18 repeatedly mentions lights and never mentions heat or plants. Plants that are capable of natural growth during each segment of the year in each locality of the earth are specifically determined by heat (the normal temperature range) and water. While there does need to be some light making its way through the clouds to supply energy for photosynthesis, the precise length of daylight each day hardly matters for the time of planting and reaping. The basic keys for the annual agricultural cycle are heat and water. Because Gen 1:14-18 mentions lights, and never heat or water, it is an astronomical context, not an agricultural context. Gen 1:14-18 declares that elements of astronomy defined by light, not agriculture, determine the calendar unless there is clear evidence to the contrary elsewhere in the Tanak. The emphasis on lights shows that observation rather than calculation was the basis for the biblical calendar. This implies that no calculation of the astronomical new moon (conjunction) was involved for the calendar. A complete study of I Samuel 20 shows that it was not known in advance whether a biblical month would have 29 or 30 days, so that the start of a month was not based upon calculation.

Personal Note:  While I would tend to agree with the author cited above, certain plants do, in fact, base their flowering phase on the amount of light they receive.  Cannabis, also known as marijuana, requires a minimum of 9 hours of daylight to survive.  After the summer solstice, when the light drops below 12 hours per day, the plant will begin to develop flowers.

"Gen 1:14 mentions the lights in the heavens, and these are the sun, the moon, the stars, the planets, and comets. The cycles of the planets and comets are much too irregular in comparison to repeatable phenomena on the earth to consider in relation to a biblical calendar when considering the lights in the heavens. The stars must be excluded because during every 1000 tropical years the time of the appearance of the stars slowly shifts about 14.1 days further into the tropical year thus losing touch with the earth's seasons; this is called precession of the equinoxes in books on astronomy. Only the sun and moon remain to be considered. The moon determines the months but not which month is the first. Only the sun remains to be considered. The only repeatable time points involving the sun are the two equinoxes and the two solstices. Considering that the barley and wheat in Israel are harvested in the spring, the vernal equinox is the only logical candidate to consider that involves the lights in the heavens on the direct basis on Gen 1:14."

Genesis 1:16

16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.  (KJV)

Gen 1:16-18 mentions the rulership or dominance of the two great lights and the stars. Ps 136:7-9 shows that the two great lights are the sun and the moon. Thus Gen 1:16-18 must refer to the sun and moon, with the stars mentioned at the end.

Genesis 1:29-30

"29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat."  (KJV)

"30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so."  (KJV)

It would seem to be that in the beginning man was a vegetarian.

Genesis 2:7

If this is Adam, who was created in Genesis 1:27?

Genesis 2:17

17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Adam lived to be ~900 years old. The "day" he died in was the 1,000 year day.

Genesis 2:19

"19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof."  (KJV)

Adam named every living creature on earth.

Genesis 3:15

"And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

""And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed.  He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

- First promise of the Messiah.

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your zera and her Zera; He shall crush your head, and you shall bruise His heel. 13 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

13  - The proto-evangelium, or the first proclamation of the Good News. While the Seed here is Messiah Yahshua, it also speaks of the nation of Yisrael overcoming the serpent’s people.

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He will bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel."  (Hebraic Roots Bible)

"And I shall put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel."  (Interlinear Genesis)

What does this mean?  YHWH is saying HE will put hatred between Adam's seed and Eve's seed.

Genesis 3:22

 22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

The first reference to eternal life for a man.

Genesis 4:26

"And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

'And to Shĕth, to him also a son was born.  And he called his name Enosh.  Then it was begun to call on the Name of YHWH.'    (The ISR Scriptures)

 The first record of “calling on the Name of YHWH."?

'And to Sheth, also there was born a son; and he called his name Enosh: then men began to call upon the Name of YHWH.'  20   (The Restoration Scriptures)

20   A long time before Moses in Exodus 3:15.

Why?

The first record of "calling" on the Name of YHWH.

There is a school of thought that says the word 'call' should be 'profane'.

Genesis 5

 

Genesis Names

Genesis 6

"And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."  (KJV)

The lifespan of humans will be 120 years.

Genesis 6:4

"There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown."  (KJV)

Translation difference.

'The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'There were Nephilim 25  in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty men who were of old, men of fame. 26 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

25   Literally means "fallen ones."

26   To stop YHWH’s eternal plan to fill the earth with one pure people.

Genesis 7:1

"And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation."  (KJV)

Noah was seen as righteous by YHWH.

Genesis 7:2

"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female."  (KJV)

It would appear that Noah knew about clean and unclean dietary laws.
At this time there are no Jews and no Hebrews.

Genesis 7:6

"And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth."  (KJV)

Moses is 600 years old.

Genesis 7:8

"Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,"  (KJV)

It would appear that Noah knew about clean and unclean dietary laws.
At this time there are no Jews and no Hebrews.

Genesis 7:10

"10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth."  (KJV)

After seven days from what?

Genesis 7:11

"11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."  (KJV)

600 02/17

This is the beginning of a time marker for determining the number of days in a month.  The end of this marker is Genesis 8:3-4.

Genesis 7:12

"12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."  (KJV)

40 days and 40 nights.

Genesis 7:16

"16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in."  (KJV)

The LORD shut him in?

Genesis 7:24

"24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days."  (KJV)

The waters covered the earth for 150 days.
Five months?

Genesis 8:3-4

"And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated."  (KJV)

"And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."  (KJV)

Will this be the start of the millenial reign or perhaps the day of the Messiah's return?

These two verses are the end of a time marker that began with Genesis 7:11.  150 days divided by 5 Months = 30 days per month.  It would appear that, in the days of Noah, months were thirty (30) days long.

Genesis 8:13

"And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry."  (KJV

How was Noah able to determine the beginning of the year without a barley harvest?

Does this verse disprove the abib barley method for determining the beginning of the year?

Genesis 9:2

"And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. "  (KJV

Why do they have to be afraid?

Genesis 9:4

"But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat."  (KJV

What does this mean?

Genesis 9:9

"And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;"  (KJV

God's covenent with man.

Genesis 9:25

"25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren."  (KJV

Why? What did he do wrong?

Genesis 9:29

"29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died."  (KJV

Noah lived to be 950 years old.

The search for Mesha.

Genesis 12:3

And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. (KJV)

The Hebrew translation could be "...all families of the earth be mixed or grafted."

ARE ALL THE NATIONS OF THE EARTH MIXED?

Genesis 12:5

"And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came."  (KJV)

"14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance."  (KJV)

Genesis 15:17

"17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces."  (KJV)

This has to do with the fulfilling of the covenant.

Genesis 15:18

"In the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates:"  (KJV)

YHWH says that the land HE is giving to Abraham's seed will be from the Nile to the Euphrates. This should include Ishmael and Esau.

The Abramic covenant.

Genesis 16

Genesis chapter 16 is essentially the story of Ishmael/Yishma'ĕl.

AISH.com  Jewish History Series - #5 The Promised Land

Genesis 16:1-2

Sarai/Sarah/Sarai tells Abram/Abram to take her Egyptians handmaiden Hagar/Agar/Hagar for a wife so she can have children by her.

Genesis 16:3

After being in the land of Canaan for 10 years, Sarai/Sarah/Sarai gives her handmaiden Hagar/Agar/Hagar to Abram/Abram for a wife so she can have children by her.

Genesis 16:4

Hagar/Agar/Hagar conceives a child by Abram/Abram

Abram/Abram will not enter covenant with YHWH until Genesis 17 so this child will not pass through the circumcision and cannot be heir to the promise.

Genesis 16:5-6

After she conceives, tensions mount between Hagar/Agar/Hagar and Sarai/Sarah/Sarai and Hagar/Agar/Hagar flees from Sarai/Sarah/Sarai.

Genesis 16:7

The angel of the YHWH finds Hagar/Agar/Hagar in the wilderness by a well on the way to Shur.

Genesis 16:16

Abram/Abram was 86 years old when Ishmael/Yishma'ĕl was born.

Genesis 17:2-4

YHWH tells Abram/Abram HE is going to make a covenant with him and make him the father of many nations.

Genesis 17:12

YHWH changes Sarai's name to Sarah.

Genesis 17:16

'And I will bless her, and give thee a son also of her: yea, I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of people shall be of her.'  (KJV)

This verse negates any claim that Hagar/Agar/Hagar might make to fame.

Genesis 17:17

Abraham/Abrahim laughs at the thought of him and Sarah/Sarai having a child at their age.  He says that Sarah/Sarai is 90 years old.

The result of an incestuous father daughter relationship.

Genesis 19:38

"38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day."  (KJV)

The result of an incestuous father daughter relationship.

...As the cities are being ravaged by rains of sulfur-and-fire, Abraham's nephew Lot escapes into the hills with his two daughters. The daughters look out upon the devastation, and presume they are the only survivors left on earth. That would make their father the only living male. So in order to propagate the human species, they initiate incestuous relations with their father. The two daughters get Lot drunk and ... nine months later, each gives birth to a baby boy. (Genesis 19:30-38)

The younger daughter named her son "Ben-Ami," which means "son of my people." She felt uncomfortable about the incest, and modestly concealed the baby's lineage.

The older daughter also felt uncomfortable about the incest, but she dealt with it in the much different way. She figured that by presenting incest as a valid alternative lifestyle, that would totally justify her behavior and she'd have nothing to feel guilty about! In other words, "I can do whatever I want ... and who are you to tell me otherwise?!"

So she brazenly named her son "Moav," which means "from my father." She made "incest" the child's name!

Avraham and Isaac

Y’shua’s Death and Resurrection

Avraham offered his only son (Genesis 22:2-12).

YHWH offered his only Son (John 3:16).

 

Isaac carried the wood for the sacrifice (Genesis 22:5).

Y’shua carried the cross for the sacrifice (John 19:17).

 

Isaac cried out to his father (Genesis 22:7).

Y’shua cried out to His Father (Matthew 27:46; Mark 15:34).

 

Isaac escaped death after three days (Genesis 22:4).

Y’shua rose from the dead on the third day (Matthew 16:21; Mark 16:2-4; Luke 9:22).

 

Avraham indicated YHWH will provide a lamb for the sacrifice (Genesis 22:8).

YHWH provided Y’shua as The Lamb for the sacrifice (Isaiah 53:7; John 1:29-36, Revelation 5:6, 7:17).

 

YHWH provided a ram, a male sheep, as a substitutionary sacrifice (Genesis 22:13).

YHWH provided a male, Y’shua, as a substitutionary sacrifice.

 

The ram was caught by its horns (head) in a thicket (thorns) (Genesis 22:13).

Y’shua wore a crown of thorns on his head (Matthew 27:29), a symbol of the sin He bore (Genesis 3:18).

 

Sacrifice offered at specific location on Mount Moriah (Genesis 22:2,9).

For hundreds of years, sacrifices would be offered from the same spot inside Solomon’s Temple and the Second Temple (2 Chronicles 3:1).  When Y’shua is crucified outside the city walls on the same mountain, the veil within the Temple is rent in two (Mark 15:38).

 

The ram was YHWH’s provision (Genesis 22:13-14).

Abraham prophetically named the place pointing to the crucifixion where YHWH made the ultimate provision: the sacrifice of His Son for sin (Hebrews 9:26-28).

 

Abraham believed that YHWH would raise Isaac from the dead (Hebrews 11:19).

YHWH raised Y’shua from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:20-23).

Genesis 26:1-3

YHWH is telling Isaac/Yitshaq to go to Egypt and recalls the promise HE made with Isaac/Yitshaq.'s father Abraham/Abrahim.

Genesis 26:4-5

And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;"  (KJV)

Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws."  (KJV)

The reason why YHWH favored Abraham/Abrahim was 'Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws.' (KJV)

Scriptural proof that YHWH had given the people commandments, statutes AND laws BEFORE Mount Sinai.

Genesis 26:24

"24 And the LORD appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake." (KJV)

Isaac/Yitshaq received a blessing for Abraham's sake not his own sake.

Jacob/Ya'aqob steals Esau's/Ĕsaw's blessing

Genesis 28:4

"And give thee the blessing of Abraham, to thee, and to thy seed with thee; that thou mayest inherit the land wherein thou art a stranger, which God gave unto Abraham."  (KJV)

This is Isaac giving a blessing to Jacob.  I do not think this is the same as YHWH giving a blessing to Abraham.  I will need to verify this theory with what is written in Deuteronomy 26:5 and Galatians 3:16.

"20 And Jacob stole away unawares to Laban the Syrian, in that he told him not that he fled."  (KJV)

Laban was a Syrian.

Genesis 31:24

"And God came to Laban the Syrian in a dream by night, and said unto him, Take heed that thou speak not to Jacob either good or bad."  (KJV)

This verse is evidence that, "God speaks to the unbelieving.  This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Yehoveh speaking to pagans, and it won’t be the last.  Laban was a spiritualist.  He accepted many gods.  So, it was no big deal for him to accept that Jacob’s God was quite real; Jacob’s god was just another of a seemingly limitless number of gods.  Let us never think that Yehoveh only interacts with, or speaks to, Believers.  He will communicate with, and use, whomever He wishes; after all, the Scriptures even tell of a time He spoke through a donkey.  At the same time, let us also not think that because God has spoken to someone, that THAT is an indication that person is a Believer.  Laban loved to invoke Yehoveh’s name when speaking to Jacob, but not because he revered God Almighty or bowed down to Him.  He did it in hopes of influencing Jacob, or Yehoveh, for his own selfish purposes."

"But his father refused and said, "I know, my son, I know. He also becomes a people, and he also is great. And yet, his younger brother is greater than he, and his seed is to become the completeness of the nations.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

"And his abba refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: 185  he also shall become a people, 186  and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than him, and his zera shall become the fullness of the gentile nations – melo ha-goyim. 187 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

185   Jacob knew what he was doing in the Spirit. Do you?

186   Could this be a specific nation?

187   Melo ha-goyim, or the “fullness of the gentiles.” Efrayim’s seed later collected in the ten tribes of the northern kingdom would produce the “fullness of the gentiles.” This is a marvelous revelation that most so-called gentiles are in fact Yisrael’s physical children. Of course, they still need blood-atonement-salvation to become true redeemed remnant Yisrael. Paul confirms this clear understanding in Romans 11:25-26, when he speaks of the “fullness of the gentiles” as those who will come in as believing returning Yisrael in the last of the last days.

"And his father refused and said, I know, my son, I know. He also shall be a people, and he shall become great. But his younger brother shall become greater than he, and his seed shall become the fullness of the nations."  (Hebrew Roots Bible)

Genesis 49:6

"O my soul, come not thou into their secret; unto their assembly, mine honour, be not thou united: for in their anger they slew a man, and in their selfwill they digged down a wall."  (KJV)

Simeon/Shim'on and Levi/Lĕwi killed Hamor/Hamor and Shechem/Shekem for raping their sister Dinah.

Genesis 49:33

"33 And when Jacob had made an end of commanding his sons, he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the ghost, and was gathered unto his people."  (KJV)

Jacob/Ya'aqob dies.

What a nice way to go.

Is the phrase, 'gathered unto his people' just a literary expression or an actual event?

The Book of Exodus/Shemoth

Exodus 1:1-5

The names of the children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl are given.

Exodus 1:6

Joseph/Yosĕph and his brothers have died.

Exodus 1:8

Egypt gets a new Pharoah that didn't know Joseph/Yosĕph.

Exodus 1:9-14

The Pharoah becomes worried that the children of Israel would help an enemy if war breaks out because their numbers were so great. He starts treating them harshly.

Exodus 1:15-22

The Pharoah tries to kill the male children of Israel and control the population.

Exodus 1:20

"20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty."  (KJV)

YHWH seems to deal well with those that don't harm his people.

Exodus 1:21

"21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses."  (KJV)

YHWH deals well with those that fear him.

Exodus 3:1

"Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb."  (KJV)

Moses/Mosheh's father in law was a priest of Midian.

Exodus 3:2

Mosheh and the burning bush.

Exodus 3:6

"Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God."  (KJV)

This verse is significant in that it indicates that the blessings and the covenant relationship has been passed down/on.

Exodus 3:14

"14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you."  (KJV)

YHWH reveals HIS name to Mosheh.

Exodus 3:15

"15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations.'"  (KJV)

This is the verse where YHWH gives his name.

This is where YHWH declares HIS name is to be remembered forever.

Exodus 3:18

"18 And they shall hearken to thy voice: and thou shalt come, thou and the elders of Israel, unto the king of Egypt, and ye shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath met with us: and now let us go, we beseech thee, three days' journey into the wilderness, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God."  (KJV)

"Perhaps we would be led to believe that had this defiant sin not taken place (Numbers 14:26-34), the desert would not be a part of our collective consciousness.  However, from the very beginning of the process of the Exodus, Moses is told that the desert, the wilderness, is the destination for the religious experience:"

(AISH.com) - Bamidbar 5771 Advanced (Numbers 1:1 - 4:20)

Exodus 5:1

Mosheh and Aaron tell the Pharoah that YHWH wants him to let HIS people go so they can keep a festival to HIM in the wilderness.

I do not know what feast/festival is being referred to in this verse.

Exodus 5:3

Mosheh and Aaron ask the pharoah to let them go or YHWH will punish them.

This verse makes it sound like they have a Torah at this point in time.

Exodus 6:4

"And I have also established my covenant with them, to give them the land of Canaan, the land of their pilgrimage, wherein they were strangers."  (KJV)

The land of the Canaanite/Kena'anite's is detailed in Genesis 10:19

Exodus 6:9

"And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage."  (KJV)

The children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl did NOT listen to the prophet.

Exodus 6:20

"20 And Amram took him Jochebed his father's sister to wife; and she bare him Aaron and Moses: and the years of the life of Amram were an hundred and thirty and seven years."  (KJV)

Amram/Amram lived to be 137 years old.
The birth of Aaron/Aharon and Moses/Mosheh

Exodus 9:1-5

YHWH tells Moses/Mosheh to tell the pharoah to let His people go and that if he doesn't, YHWH will bring a pestilance on the livestock of the Egyptians but not the children of Israel.

Exodus 9:6-7

The day after Moses/Mosheh tells the pharoah to let His people go all the cattle of Egypt died but none of the cattle of the children of Israel died.

Exodus 9:7

Pharoah's heart was hardened and he did not let the people go.

Exodus 9:8-11

YHWH said to Moses/Mosheh and Aaron/Aharon to take ashes from the furnace and sprinkle it toward the heaven in front of Pharaoh. The dust causes boils to break out on man and beast. I think this only happened to the Egyptians.

Exodus 9:12

YHWH hardened Pharoah's heart.

Exodus 9:13-16

Moses/Mosheh tells Pharoah's that if he doesn't let YHWH's people go, YHWH will smite the people with pestilence.

Exodus 9:17-26

Moses/Mosheh tells Pharoah's that if he doesn't let YHWH's people go, YHWH will send hail and fire down from heaven.  This plague did not affect the land of Goshen or the children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl.

Exodus 9:27-30

Pharoah's admits his sin and ask Moses/Mosheh to take away the fire and hail. Moses/Mosheh says he will but that he knows the Pharoah does not fear YHWH.

Exodus 9:31-32

References to the Abib/Aviv of the barley is made in these verses.

Exodus 9:33-35

Moses/Mosheh stops the storms but as soon as they stop the pharoah sinned, hardened his heart and refused to let the people go.

Exodus 12

This chapter gives details about the Festival of Pĕsah (Passover) and the Festival of Matzot (Unleavened Bread)

Exodus 12:2

"This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. "  (KJV)

The first month of the year is???

Exodus 12:3

"Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:"  (KJV)

10th day of the 1st month, every year.

Exodus 12:6

"And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening."  (KJV)

After the sundown of the 13th day.

Exodus 12:11

"11 And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD's passover."  (KJV)

The Feast is called the Pĕsah of YHWH.

I think this gets them ready to flee as soon as the pharoah releases them.

Exodus 12:14

"14 And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to the LORD throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever."  (KJV)

The passover memorial feast.

The Festival is called the Pĕsah of YHWH.

The evening of the 14th day of the 1st month of every year.

It shall be an ordinance or an everlasting law.

Exodus 12:15

"15 Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel."  (KJV)

The feast of unleavened bread

The 15th through the 21st days of the 1st month of every year.

Exodus 12:16

"16 And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you."  (KJV)

The 1st and 7th days are holy convocations.

The only work to be done is that which is necessary to eat.

Exodus 12:17

"17 And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance for ever."  (KJV)

This is a day to be guarded forever.

Exodus 12:18

"18 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even."  (KJV)

It starts and stops in the evening.  This seems to indicate that the evening is the start of the day.

Exodus 12:19

"19 Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land."  (KJV)

This is a full 7 day feast without leaven (yeast).

Exodus 12:22

"22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning."  (KJV)

The people were commanded to stay inside their homes until morning.

Exodus 12:23

"23 For the LORD will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you."  (KJV)

Was this the 'angel of death'?

Exodus 12:24

"24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever."  (KJV)

This is a law forever.

Exodus 12:25

"25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the LORD will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service."  (KJV)

You will keep this service even when you get to the promised land.

Exodus 12:27

"27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the LORD's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped."  (KJV)

You will teach the meaning of this service to your children.

Exodus 12:29

"29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle."  (KJV)

At midnight YHWH killed all the first born. Even those in the dungeon. Even the first born of the cattle.

How was he able to tell, who was the first born?

Exodus 12:35

"35 And the children of Israel did according to the word of Moses; and they borrowed of the Egyptians jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment:"  (KJV)

If you are leaving forever, how do you borrow something?

Exodus 12:38

"38 And a mixed multitude went up also with them; and flocks, and herds, even very much cattle."  (KJV)

A mixed multitude left with the children of Yisra'ĕl.

Exodus 12:41

"41 And it came to pass at the end of the four hundred and thirty years, even the selfsame day it came to pass, that all the hosts of the LORD went out from the land of Egypt."  (KJV)

The children of Yisra'ĕl had been in Mitsrayim for 430 years.

Why is this day so significant?

Exodus 12:42

"42 It is a night to be much observed unto the LORD for bringing them out from the land of Egypt: this is that night of the LORD to be observed of all the children of Israel in their generations."  (KJV)

This is a very important night.

Exodus 12:49

There is only one Torah
Numbers 9:14
Numbers 15:15

Exodus 13:2

"Sanctify unto me all the firstborn, whatsoever openeth the womb among the children of Israel, both of man and of beast: it is mine."  (KJV)

Sanctify all the firstborn to YHWH, both man and beast.

Exodus 13:3

"And Moses said unto the people, Remember this day, in which ye came out from Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the LORD brought you out from this place: there shall no leavened bread be eaten."  (KJV)

Remember the day YHWH brought us out of the land of Mitsrayim and eat no leavened bread.
Was this the day after the Passover?

Exodus 13:4

"This day came ye out in the month Abib"  (KJV)

The month when Passover and Unleavened bread occurs is called Abib.

Exodus 13:5

"And it shall be when the LORD shall bring thee into the land of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee, a land flowing with milk and honey, that thou shalt keep this service in this month."  (KJV)

You will keep this service when you get to the promised land.

Does this mean they didn't have to keep the service while they were wondering in the desert?

Exodus 13:8-9

"And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt."  (KJV)

You will teach your children the meaning of this feast.

"And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD's law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt."  (KJV)

Exodus 13:12

"12 That thou shalt set apart unto the LORD all that openeth the matrix, and every firstling that cometh of a beast which thou hast; the males shall be the LORD's."  (KJV)

You will set apart your firstborn (man and beast) when you get to the promised land.

Exodus 13:18

"18 But God led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red sea: and the children of Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt."  (KJV)

Red Sea/Sea of Reeds

Exodus 15:17

"17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established."  (KJV)

Where is this place? Neither the tabernacle nor the temple have been built at this time.

Exodus 15:20

"20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances."  (KJV)

Miriam, the sister of Aaron was a prophetess.
Interesting that the Scriptures don't say she was the sister of Aaron and Moses.

Exodus 15:25

"25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,"  (KJV)

What are the statutes and ordinances he gave?

Exodus 16:1

The children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl come into the Wilderness of Sin which is between Elim/Ĕlim and Sinai/Sina/Sinai.

Exodus 16:2-3

The whole congregation of the children of Israel murmured against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness because they had no food.

Exodus 16:4-7

Moses tells the children of Israel he will make bread rain from heaven and that they are to gather only a days portion each day in order to test them and see if they will walk in HIS Torah or not.

This is a reference to a Torah being in existance before the Torah was given on Mount Sinai in Exodus 20:1-17.

Exodus 16:4

"Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no."  (KJV)

This is a reference to a Torah in existance before the Torah that was given on Mount Sinai (Exodus 20:1-17).

Exodus 16:5

"And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily."  (KJV)

This sets the pace for the Sabbath. On the sixth day, there will be twice as much so they don't have to gather on the seventh day.

Exodus 16:10-12

YHWH appears to Moses.

Exodus 16:10-13

Quails appear in the evening.

Exodus 16:10-14

Manna appears in the morning.

Exodus 16:15

"15 And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was. And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the LORD hath given you to eat."  (KJV)

manna/manna - what is it?

Exodus 16:19

Moses commands the people not to leave any manna until the morning.

Exodus 16:20

"20 Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them."  (KJV)

Some of the people tried to keep the manna overnight an it rotted.

They didn't listen and obey.

Exodus 16:21

In the day, the sun melted the manna.

Exodus 16:22

"22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses."  (KJV)

On the sixth (6th) day, twice as much manna was collected.

The rulers answered to Moses/Mosheh.

Exodus 16:23

"23 And he said unto them, This is that which the LORD hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the LORD: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning."  (KJV)

The cooking restriction is outlined.

In this verse Mosheh is instructing the people to cook and heat what is needed and what is left over is to be used on the Sabbath.

Exodus 16:25

On the sabbath, no manna appeared.

Exodus 16:28-30

YHWH details a sabbath restriction.

Exodus 16:28

"28 And the LORD said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?"  (KJV)

What commandments and laws is HE referring to?

Exodus 16:29

"29 See, for that the LORD hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day."  (KJV)

What commandments and laws is HE referring to?

YHWH is instructing us to stay in our place on the Sabbath.  I think this means we are not to leave our homes.  I need to compare this to HIS instructions for Passover when HE told us to stay in our homes.

Exodus 16:30

"30 So the people rested on the seventh day."  (KJV)

What commandments and laws is HE referring to?

YHWH is instructing us to stay in our place on the Sabbath.  I think this means we are not to leave our homes.  I need to compare this to HIS instructions for Passover when HE told us to stay in our homes.

In this chapter, YHWH is using the availability of manna to teach the people the importance of the weekly Sabbath.

The seventh day of the week, the weekly Sabbath, was observed before the Ten Words were given on Mt. Sinai.

Exodus 16:31

The taste of manna is described.

Exodus 16:32-34

"34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept."  (KJV)

Moses tells Aaron to keep an omer of manna to remind the people.

The Scripture states that Aaron/Aharon put the manna before the witness.  What is this witness being referred to?

'“When they have a matter, they come to me, and I rightly rule between one and another, and make known the laws of Elohim and His Torot.”'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'When they have a matter, they come to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor. And I make known the statutes of Elohim, and the laws from His Torah.'  (Hebraic Roots Bible)

What are these statutes/laws/Torot and where did Moses/Mosheh learn them?

What are these statutes/laws/Torot and where did Moses/Mosheh learn them?  This verse is chronologically before the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai.

This verse speaks about laws and statures that were known by Moses/Mosheh BEFORE the Ten Commandments were given to him on Mount Sinai!

Grammatically, this verse speaks of the laws and statutes as if they are two distinct (yet related) terms.

God/Elohim - (430) - plural of ''elowahh' (433); gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:--angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.; (433) - probably prolonged (emphat.) from ''el' (410); a deity or the Deity:--God, god. See ''elohiym' (430).; (410) - shortened from ''ayil' (352); strength; as adjective, mighty; especially the Almighty (but used also of any deity):--God (god), X goodly, X great, idol, might(-y one), power, strong. Compare names in "-el."; (352) - from the same as ''uwl' (193); properly, strength; hence, anything strong; specifically a chief (politically); also a ram (from his strength); a pilaster (as a strong support); an oak or other strong tree:--mighty (man), lintel, oak, post, ram, tree.; (193) - from an unused root meaning to twist, i.e. (by implication) be strong; the body (as being rolled together); also powerful:--mighty, strength.

Law/Torah - (8451) - or torah {to-raw'}; from 'yarah' (3384); a precept or statute, especially the Decalogue or Pentateuch:--law.; (3384) - or (2 Chr. 26:15) yara; {yaw-raw'}; a primitive root; properly, to flow as water (i.e. to rain); transitively, to lay or throw (especially an arrow, i.e. to shoot); figuratively, to point out (as if by aiming the finger), to teach:--(+) archer, cast, direct, inform, instruct, lay, shew, shoot, teach(-er,-ing), through.

Chukim: "Decrees." These are the mitzvot that transcend rational reason, unlike both mishpatim and edot. The quintessential chok (singular for chukim) is the mitzvah of the red heifer.

Exodus 18:20

And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.  (KJV)

Translation Difference

'"And you shall enlighten them concerning the laws and the Torot, and show them the way in which they should walk and the work which they do."'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'And you shall teach them the ordinances and Torot, and shall show them the derech in which they must have their halacha, 266 and the work that they must do.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

266  - Hebrew: halacha, meaning way, or way to walk, or the way to conduct one’s life.

'And you warn them as to the statutes and the laws of the Torah, and make known to them the way in which they should walk, and the work which they should do.'  (Hebraic Roots Bible)

The marriage proposal

"And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. "  (KJV)

YHWH tells Moses/Mosheh about the covenant and tells him he will make the people a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.

This is YHWH's purpose for the children of Israel.  Verses 5 & 6 constitute the marriage offer made at Mount Sinai.

In Numbers 8:19 YHWH chose the line of Levi from among the nation of Israel to be his priests.

Exodus 19:8

"And all the people answered together, and said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto the LORD."  (KJV)

How many days from the first ULB to the giving of Torah

Exodus 16 1 And they pulled up stakes from Elim. And all the congregation of the sons of Israel came into the Wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their going out from the land of Egypt.

ULB is on 15th of Aviv if they entered wilderness on 15th day of the second month it would be 30 days later. But if it was the second month after leaving it would be 60 days.

Exodus 19 1 In the third month of the going out of the sons of Israel from the land of Egypt, on this day they came to the wilderness of Sinai. 9 And YAHWEH said to Moses, Behold, I come to you in a darkness of clouds, so that the people may hear My speaking with you, and in you they may believe forever. And Moses told the words of the people to YAHWEH. 10 And YAHWEH said to Moses, Go to the people and sanctify them today and tomorrow. And let them wash their clothes. 11 And be ready for the third day. For on the third day YAHWEH will go down before the eyes of all the people on the mountain of Sinai.

If this is the third month of the year and “on this day” means the day they left it would be sixty days. If it is the first day of the third month it would be approximately 46 days.

1st month ULB day 15 leaves 15 more days in the month. 15

Second month equals 30 days. + 30

First day of third month. + 1

Equals = 46

This is assuming each of the first two months had 30 days not 29 as sometimes happens.

Then add three more days for the Israelites to sanctify themselves and you get 49 days.

If you assume that the events of Exo. 19:9-11 took a whole day then we get 50 days from the first day of ULB to the giving of Torah. If the first day ULB fell on a weekly Sabbath then the giving of torah would coincide with the feast of weeks or Shavout which becomes Pentecost. This would mean Torah was given at the same time of the year as the Ruach haKodesh was given to the disciples.

This document is full many assumptions and should not be considered an absolute.

The count could just as easily be :

Third month fifteenth day 60

Three days for the Israelites to sanctify themselves + 3

one day for Moses to get instructions + 1

Equals = 64

14 days to late

If Exodus 19:1 means the third month after leaving this would be 90 days approximately, plus the three days to sanctify themselves, and the day to set up camp and for Moses to get the instructions from YHWH. This would give you a count of 94 days.

Three months since leaving 90

Three days for the Israelites to sanctify themselves + 3

one day for Moses to get instructions + 1

Equals =94

44 days too late

Exodus 34:22

YHWH commands us to keep Chag Shavuot (feast of weeks) and Chag HaSukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles).

"Does Ex 34:22 refer to the end of the harvest when it uses the word tkufah? There is no ancient context that forces tkufah to mean a “point” of time defined by harvest in contrast to ancient contexts that show it to relate to heavenly bodies. This is simply a matter of finding contexts that bring out meaning that is clear. Incidentally, the three main crops harvested at that general time of the year are figs, olives, and grapes. Figs are a summer fruit, whose harvest hardly ever extends into the fall. The olive harvest occurs in September and October, and is over in most parts of Israel by about the third quarter of October. The grape harvest begins with sour grapes in July but with ripe grapes in some areas of Israel from the beginning of August. The grape harvest continues through about the first third of November in the area of Jerusalem. The uses of tkufah in the Dead Sea Scrolls show the meaning of a point in time. In contrast to this, the harvest of fleshy fruits in ancient Israel is widely spread out over time from mid-summer into almost late autumn. Thus the meaning of tkufah best includes the boundary points of the four seasons as well as the other meanings demonstrated above."

Leviticus 10:17

Quite another phase of symbolic meaning was intended to be conveyed by the sacrificial meal which the priests were to make of the flesh of such sin-offerings as were not wholly burnt without the camp. Unquestionably Philo was right in suggesting, that one of the main objects of this meal was to carry to the offerer assurance of his acceptance, 'since God would never have allowed His servants to partake of it, had there not been a complete removal and forgetting of the sin' atoned for. This view entirely accords with the statement in Leviticus 10:17, where the purpose of this meal by the priests is said to be 'to bear the iniquity of the congregation.' Hence, also, the flesh of all sacrifices, either for the high-priest, as representing the priesthood, or for the whole people, had to be burnt; because those who, as God's representatives, were alone allowed to eat the sacrificial meal were themselves among the offerers of the sacrifice.

422  - The two houses of Yisrael are so fresh and uppermost in YHWH’s heart that He made sure the people understood that they would be continually renewed through the years. The changing of the Bread of His Presence, displayed that all Yisrael stays fresh in His presence, as they enter into His Shabbat rest. Therefore the Shabbat was appointed as the day of refreshing, as there remains therefore rest to Yisrael according to Hebrews 4:9.

Numbers 1:1

"And the LORD spake unto Moses in the wilderness of Sinai, in the tabernacle of the congregation, on the first day of the second month, in the second year after they were come out of the land of Egypt, saying,"  (KJV)

Why was the Torah given ia a desert?

"Because a desert is empty.  What this means is to acquire Torah - to receive YAH's wisdom - we must first be willing to open up space inside."

"The Maharal (16th century Prague) explains that the only way to teach anything is to first get the student to ask a question.  Because a question creates a lack and a need – a space that the answer can then come and fill. But without first a question, there is no room for the answer."

Numbers 2:1

"Every man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their father's house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch."  (KJV)

Numbers 3:12

"And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine;"  (KJV)

Until the transgression of the Golden Calf, the firstborn sons were the ones who were designated to do the holy service in the Mishkan, the Portable Sanctuary, in the Desert.  No one from the Tribe of Levi worshipped the Golden Calf and, therefore, the Almighty replaced the firstborn with the Tribe of Levi to serve in the sanctuary (Numbers 3:11-12).  Levi had three sons: Gershon, Kehath and Merari.  The work of the Sanctuary -- erecting, dismantling, carrying, singing, assisting the Cohanim -- was divided amongst the three families.

""Now look, I Myself have taken the Lĕwites from among the children of Yisra'ĕl instead of every first-born who opens the womb among the children of Yisra'ĕl. And the Lĕwites shall be Mine,"  (The ISR Scriptures)

"Because all the bachor are Mine; for on the day that I smote all the bachor in the land of Mitzrayim I made all the bachor in Yisrael kadosh to Me, both man and beast: they shall be Mine: I am YHWH."  (The Restoration Scriptures)

‘And the kohen shall write these curses in a scroll, and he shall blot them out with the bitter mayim: 453 '  (The ISR Scriptures)

453   Yahshua nailed the curse of Yisrael's unfaithfulness to His execution stake, as Yisrael corporately had violated the Torah of a jealous Husband.  In so doing, Yahshua took the book with all Yisrael's violations and canceled the curses that resulted from Yisrael's unfaithfulness that were recorded in the book by the High Priest.  That is referenced clearly in Colossians 2:14.

Numbers 9:14

There is only one Torah.

Numbers 10:10

"Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God."  (KJV)

It was "...a responsibility of the Levitical priesthood in declaring the "beginning of the months", and thus control of the calendar and its knowledge could be expected to have been passed down from generation to generation via the hereditary priesthood. However, after the Temple was destroyed in 70 CE the Levitical priesthood vanished from Jewish history along with its influence over the calendar. No writings from this priesthood have survived from before the destruction of the Temple, except for the fact that Josephus was a priest who was born in 37 CE and died c. 100. While his writings exist, none of them were written before the destruction of the Temple, and he does not discuss when a month begins in any direct way. He never mentions any astronomical calculations being done by the ancient Jews, and neither does Philo of Alexandria (c. 20 BCE - c. 50 CE)."

Numbers 11:26

"But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied in the camp."  (KJV)

When the seventy elders were being chosen, there was a need to deal with the problem of two extra elders that had to be excluded from the group. There were twelve tribes to represent and only seventy sages allowed. The most equitable distribution would have allowed six elders per tribe, but this would have added up to seventy two, more than the number allowed. The decision was taken to write seventy two names on lots and pick the seventy elders by drawing the first seventy names. Eldad and Meidad, both of whose names had been included in the draw, decided to solve the selection problem by not showing up to the drawing.

For this act of generosity and humility they were awarded with the gift of prophecy, and they began to prophesize in the camp. Their prophecy: "Moses will die in the desert and Joshua will lead the Jews into Israel."

Numbers 11:31-34

Remember, the manna fell within the camp.  In order for the people to get to the quail, they had to trample over the manna.  Talk about rejecting God’s provision!  No wonder Adonai Tza’vaot (the Lord of Host) wiped them out.  How could they trample underfoot something so miraculous, something their fathers had never known, for something as common as quail?  Especially when they had flocks and herds?

Numbers 12:3

"(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)"  (KJV)

Translation Difference

'"And we saw there the Nephilim, sons of Anaq, of the Nephilim. And we were like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and so we were in their eyes."'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'And there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak, who came from the Nephilim: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight. 475 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

475   It is possible that these Nephilim were unclean spirits in the spirit realm after the flood, who later came back into the daughters of men. Or, Nephilim may simply be a term for fallen giants, not connected with the events of Genesis 6.

The spies first felt that they were like grasshoppers in their own eyes. Only after they themselves felt that theywere like grasshoppers did they believe that others perceived them as grasshoppers in their eyes.

Ironically, the way you see yourself is the exact way in which you'll think how others feel about you. And the only way to ever change how you think others view you is to actually change the way in which you see yourself. Doing this can make all the difference in the world.

Numbers 14:1-5

The congregation murmured against the spies report of giants in the land of Caanan.

Numbers 14:6

"And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:"  (KJV)

Do Jehoshua/Yahusha and Caleb/Kalĕb symbolize Ephraim/Ephrayim and Judah/Yahudah?

Numbers 14:6-9

Jehoshua/Yahusha and Caleb/Kalĕb tried to talk the congregation out of their fear.

Numbers 14:10

"10 But all the congregation bade stone them with stones. And the glory of the LORD appeared in the tabernacle of the congregation before all the children of Israel.:"  (KJV)

Definitely NOT a good sign.

Numbers 14:11-35

YHWH was going to destroy the congregation but Moses spoke in their defense. YHWH said all the congregation except Jehoshua/Yahusha, Caleb/Kalĕb and the children of the congregation would die in the wilderness.

Numbers 14:24

"24 But my servant Caleb, because he had another spirit with him, and hath followed me fully, him will I bring into the land whereinto he went; and his seed shall possess it."  (KJV)

Do Jehoshua/Yahusha and Caleb/Kalĕb symbolize Ephraim/Ephrayim and Judah/Yahudah?

Numbers 14:30

"30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and Joshua the son of Nun."  (KJV)

Do Jehoshua/Yahusha and Caleb/Kalĕb symbolize Ephraim/Ephrayim and Judah/Yahudah?

Numbers 14:36-38

YHWH killed the ten (10) spies who gave the bad report with a plague.

Numbers 14:39-45

Moses tells the people of their curse and the next morning they decide to go against the Caanites.  Moses tells them not to as YHWH will not be with them but they go anyway and are defeated.

This is a very important lesson for today. The Jews claim that they are returning to the land and can now drive out the Caanites as they were instructed to do back in the days of Moses. This story clearly shows that if you do not do what YHWH wants you to do when HE wants you to do it and HE pronounces judgement (like HE did to the house of Israel AND the house of Judah) then you cannot go back and obey on your own terms.

Deuteronomy 1:43

Numbers 14:40

"40 And they rose up early in the morning, and gat them up into the top of the mountain, saying, Lo, we be here, and will go up unto the place which the LORD hath promised: for we have sinned."  (KJV)

Once the people realized that they were being cursed by YHWH, THEN they decided to do as they were told.  However, then it was too late.

Numbers 15:15

"15 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD."  (KJV)

One Torah (Instructions) for everyone who believes in YHWH. One law for everyone.

Exodus 12:49

Numbers 9:14

Numbers 15:38

"38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:"  (KJV)

Instructions Tzitzit

Numbers 16:10

"10 And he hath brought thee near to him, and all thy brethren the sons of Levi with thee: and seek ye the priesthood also?"  (KJV)

This verse would seem to indicate that the Levites are not priests.

Numbers 16:35

"35 And there came out a fire from the LORD, and consumed the two hundred and fifty men that offered incense."  (KJV)

The 250 men that offered incense died just like Aaron's sons had.

Numbers 16:36-40

YHWH instructs Moses to take the censors of the men who died during Korah's rebellion and to beat them into plating to cover the alter as a memorial to the children of Israel that no one not of the line of Aaron is to come before YHWH with incense.

Numbers 16:41-50

The children of Israel murmured against Moses and accused him of killing the children of Israel.  YHWH released a plague and Moses instructs Aaron to go out with a censor and stand between the living and the dead.  14,700 people died over this incident.

Numbers 16:49

"49 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah."  (KJV)

14,700 people died from the plague.

Numbers 19

The ritual of the red heifer is established.

Numbers 19:2

"This is the ordinance of the law which the LORD hath commanded, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke:"  (KJV)

The ceremony of the red heifer used to cleanse the high priest.

Numbers 19:10

"10 And he that gathereth the ashes of the heifer shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: and it shall be unto the children of Israel, and unto the stranger that sojourneth among them, for a statute for ever."  (KJV)

a statute/law for ever

Numbers 19:21

"21 And it shall be a perpetual statute unto them, that he that sprinkleth the water of separation shall wash his clothes; and he that toucheth the water of separation shall be unclean until even."  (KJV)

a perpetual statute/law

Numbers 20:1

Miriam/Miryam dies at Kadesh/Qadĕsh in the desert of Zin/Tsin.

Numbers 20:2-13

The people complain to Moses/Mosheh about the lack of water. Moses/Mosheh makes the water come from the rock at Meribah/Meribah but does not do as YHWH instructs so he is told by YHWH that he will not enter the promised land.

Numbers 20:14-21

The children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl try to pass through the land of Edom/Edom but the king there would not let them pass though his land.

Numbers 21:4-9

The children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl complained about having to go around Edom/Edom and YHWH sent fiery serpents to kill them. The people repented and YHWH told Moses/Mosheh to make a brass image that the people could look at and live.

Numbers 22

The story of Balaam/Bil'am and his talking ass.

Numbers 22:28

"And the LORD opened the mouth of the ass, and she said unto Balaam, What have I done unto thee, that thou hast smitten me these three times?"  (KJV)

It is noteworthy that the word usually employed by the Torah for "times" is pe’amim, but in this verse an unusual form, regalim, usually denoting "festivals," is used. Rashi, quoting Chazal, notes:

"These three times — it was a hint that he wanted to uproot the Jewish nation, who celebrate three pilgrim festivals each year." (Rashi loc. cit.)

The holy Arizal adapts this idea to suggest that Bilam’s intention was not to destroy the nation in its entirety, but to eliminate from it the observance of the three festivals. Why should our adversary, Bilam, desire to eradicate the observance of this mitzvah more than any other?

The Mishnah teaches: "Those who have an evil eye, an arrogant spirit, and an insatiable soul are pupils of the wicked Bilam." (Avos 5:22)

Numbers 25:7-8

"And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;"  (KJV)

When Phinehas/Pinehas son of Eleazar/El'azar son of Aaron/Aharon (a Levite) sees this he takes a spear goes into Zimri/Zimri's tent and kills him and the woman, Cozbi/Kozbi daughter of Zur/Tsur daughter of a Midian/Midyan chief.

Phinehas/Pinehas was a Levite

Numbers 25:9

"And those that died in the plague were twenty and four thousand."  (KJV)

24,000 died in the plague that YHWH unleashed.

Numbers 25:10-13

YHWH tells Moses/Mosheh that HE is pleased with Phinehas/Pinehas zealousness and makes a covenant of peace and everlasting priesthood with Phinehas/Pinehas and his seed after him.

Numbers 25:11

"11 Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, hath turned my wrath away from the children of Israel, while he was zealous for my sake among them, that I consumed not the children of Israel in my jealousy."  (KJV)

Numbers 25:16-18

YHWH tells Moses/Mosheh to kill all the Midianites/Midyanite for their beguiling ways.

Numbers 26:1-2

YHWH commands Moses/Mosheh and Eleazar/El'azar (son of Aaron/Aharon) to take a census of all 20 years and older that are able to go to war.

The census of Judah/Yahudah is 76,500.

Numbers 27:12-14

Moses is told by YHWH to climb Mount Abarim where he can see the promised land but that he will not be able to enter into it.

Numbers 27:15-15

Moses asks YHWH to set a man over the congregation and be their shephard.

When Moses was told by God that he wouldn't be able to lead the Jewish people into the land of Israel, his knee-jerk response was not focused on his own fate, but rather to make sure that the Jews would still have someone in his absence who would continue to lead them. This is why Moses was one of the greatest leaders ever.

The ability to focus on other people's needs when the "going gets tough" and not on your own wants and desires is the true definition of leadership. Being a leader is not about the recognition or accolades you might receive, but rather it's the constant focus on the specific needs that are most important to those who are following you. Therefore, if for one reason or another you're no longer able to lead them, you will automatically put their fears and concerns as your primary focus.

The world is littered with countless numbers of cases where, once someone was asked to stop doing something, he ceased to care about the people whom his work was effecting. It makes you wonder if he really ever truly cared about them in the first place. The true colors of a leader are on full display when he leaves his leadership position and to see if he ever gives even a passing thought to all those who believed in him, his vision, and his dream.

"A young man once said to me that he could see nothing wrong with the Christmas tree because he did not bow down and worship it. He misunderstood. Do we? The first commandment covers this particular aspect of idolatry. If one was bowing down to the tree, that would be what he was worshipping."

"The second commandment has to do with the way we worship, in spirit and truth. Christmas—and its trappings like the Christmas tree—is not part of the way God commanded we worship. It is not part of the truth of God. Therefore, the Christmas tree is a component of an idolatry created when man desires to worship God as he devises rather than as God instructs. So he breaks the second commandment even though he never bows down to the tree."

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF NUMBERS:

 

REFERENCE LINKS ON THE BOOK OF NUMBERS:

 

The Book of Deuteronomy/Debarim

Deuteronomy 1:3

"And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them;"  (KJV)

year 40, month 11, day 1

Deuteronomy 1:9-18

Moses sets up the 'chain of command' among the Israelites.

Deuteronomy 1:16

"16 And I charged your judges at that time, saying, Hear the causes between your brethren, and judge righteously between every man and his brother, and the stranger that is with him."  (KJV)

Moses specifically tells the judges to judge righteously between every man and his brother and the stranger that is with him.

This included the 'stranger that is with him'.

Deuteronomy 1:21-45

The story of the 12 spies

Deuteronomy 1:28

"28 Whither shall we go up? our brethren have discouraged our heart, saying, The people is greater and taller than we; the cities are great and walled up to heaven; and moreover we have seen the sons of the Anakims there."  (KJV)

Who are these people?

Deuteronomy 1:39

"39 Moreover your little ones, which ye said should be a prey, and your children, which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil, they shall go in thither, and unto them will I give it, and they shall possess it."  (KJV)

Interesting here that YHWH has mercy on the children 'which in that day had no knowledge between good and evil'.

Deuteronomy 1:41-44

What happened when the people did things their way and in their time to avoid the curse of YHWH.

This is a very important lesson for today. The Jews claim that they are returning to the land and can now drive out the Caanites as they were instructed to do back in the days of Moses. This story clearly shows that if you do not do what YHWH wants you to do when HE wants you to do it and HE pronounces judgement (like HE did to the house of Israel AND the house of Judah) then you cannot go back and obey on your own terms.

Numbers 14:39-45

Deuteronomy 1:45

"45 And ye returned and wept before the LORD; but the LORD would not hearken to your voice, nor give ear unto you."  (KJV)

This is how YHWH handles direct disobedience.

Deuteronomy 2:9

'And the LORD said unto me, Distress not the Moabites, neither contend with them in battle: for I will not give thee of their land for a possession; because I have given Ar unto the children of Lot for a possession.'  (KJV)

Deuteronomy 3:11

"11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man."  (KJV)

Og, king of Bashan was the last of the remnant of Giants.

If a cubit is 18", then his bed was 13 1/2' long and 6' wide.

Deuteronomy 4:2

"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. "  (KJV)

YHWH tells the people not to add to his word or diminish it.

The Torah of YHWH is perfect.  (Psalm 19:7-8)

Don't Add or Subtract (Deuteronomy 4:2)
by Rabbi Shraga Simmons

A king calls in his trusted minister and says: "I have an important mission for you to perform. Go to the neighboring kingdom and meet their leaders. But remember one thing - under no circumstances must you remove your shirt during this meeting. Now go and do as I say."

The minister sets off on his merry way and soon arrives at the neighboring kingdom. There he heads straight for the palace where he meets with the king. In the midst of their discussion, he sees some of the king's officers pointing and laughing at him.

"Why are you laughing?" asks the visiting minister.

"Because we've never seen someone with such a pronounced hunchback," they say.

"What are you talking about? I'm not a hunchback!"

"Of course you are!"

"No I'm not!"

"We'll bet you one million dollars that you are!"

"Fine - I'll gladly take your bet."

"Okay, so take off your shirt and prove it."

At which point the minister remembers the parting words of the king: "Under no circumstances must you remove your shirt during the meeting." Yet, the minister reasons, a million dollars would certainly bring added wealth to the king's coffers. I know I'm not a hunchback, so I'll surely win the bet. I am certain that under these circumstances the king would approve!

The minister removes his shirt and proudly displays his perfect posture. With pride in his achievement, he holds out his hand, into which is placed a check for one million dollars.

The minister can barely contain his excitement. He quickly ends the meeting and runs back to give the wonderful news to his king. "I earned you a million dollars!" exclaims the minister. "It was easy. I only had to remove my shirt to prove that I wasn't a hunchback."

"You did what?!" shouts the king. "But I told you specifically not to remove your shirt. I trusted that you'd follow instructions, and so I bet the other king $10 million dollars that he couldn't get you to remove your shirt!"

PRIMAL MISTAKE

Intuitively, it is understandable why not to subtract from the Torah. But why can't we add to the mitzvot? Isn't doing more always better?

Consider a great work of art. Would you add a few notes to a Bach fugue, or some brushstrokes to a Rembrandt portrait?!

Adding to the mitzvot is not serving God – it is serving oneself with what "feels good." Perfection, by definition, cannot be improved upon. Adding to the Torah implies that God is lacking. It is self-worship of one's own creativity.

Furthermore, the same subjective judgement which decides to add, is that which eventually leads one to subtract:

In the Garden of Eden, the snake tried to entice Eve to eat from the Tree. "Did God really say not to eat from the Tree?" queried the snake.

"Absolutely," said Eve. "God said we can't eat it, and we can't even touch it" (Genesis 3:3).

At that point, says the Midrash, the snake pushed Eve so that she brushed up against the Tree. "See that!" said the snake. "You touched the Tree and nothing happened. God didn't really mean what He said. You touched it, now go ahead and eat it."

So Eve ate.

Those who add, will come to subtract.

"Your eyes have seen what the LORD did because of Baalpeor: for all the men that followed Baalpeor, the LORD thy God hath destroyed them from among you."  (KJV)

The incident at Baalpeor.

Deuteronomy 4:9

"Only take heed to thyself, and keep thy soul diligently, lest thou forget the things which thine eyes have seen, and lest they depart from thy heart all the days of thy life: but teach them thy sons, and thy sons' sons;"  (KJV)

This is the purpose of the children of Israel, to be an example to all the people of the world.

Deuteronomy 4:13

"13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone."  (KJV)

The Ten Commandments are a covenant.
The Ten Commandments are YHWH's covenant.

Deuteronomy 4:16

"16 Lest ye corrupt yourselves, and make you a graven image, the similitude of any figure, the likeness of male or female,"  (KJV)

Warnings against making graven images.

Deuteronomy 4:26

"26 I call heaven and earth to witness against you this day, that ye shall soon utterly perish from off the land whereunto ye go over Jordan to possess it; ye shall not prolong your days upon it, but shall utterly be destroyed."  (KJV)

Moses prophesies that the children of Israel will perish from off the Holy Land, that they will be scattered among the nations and that they shall serve other gods.

Deuteronomy 4:29-31

"29 But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul."  (KJV)

"30 When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;"  (KJV)

This verse seems to be speaking about the End of Days or long after the Messiah was crucified.

"31 (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them."  (KJV)

Moses tells the people that IF they repent and become obedient YHWH will not forsake them.
Moses tells the people that even in the latter days, if they will turn to YHWH and be obedient, HE will not forsake them, nor destroy them nor forget the covenant which he swore to their fathers.

Deuteronomy 4:41-43

"41 Then Moses severed three cities on this side Jordan toward the sunrising;"  (KJV)

"42 That the slayer might flee thither, which should kill his neighbour unawares, and hated him not in times past; and that fleeing unto one of these cities he might live:"  (KJV)

"43 Namely, Bezer in the wilderness, in the plain country, of the Reubenites; and Ramoth in Gilead, of the Gadites; and Golan in Bashan, of the Manassites."  (KJV)

Moses seperates out three (3) cities of refuge for people who accidentally kill someone to flee to.

Deuteronomy 5:6-18

The ten commandments are also listed in Exodus 20:1-17

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

These two verses are the Shema.  This prayer is said every morning and every evening by the Jews.

"THE ONLY WAY TO KNOW GOD

Judaism teaches that the only way to learn about God is through revelation. God has to communicate with us and tell us about Himself; His thoughts, aspirations and expectations, His motivations. It is primarily for this reason that God gave us the Torah; any knowledge of God that we possess comes to us through the study of God's Torah. The fact that God is unknowable except through the revelations of Torah has enormous implications.

The third positive commandment is the commandment to love God. What does this specifically entail? It enjoins us to study and think about His commandments, His statements and His works until we reach the level of comprehension about Him where we consciously enjoy our knowledge of Him. This is the type of love that we are commanded to feel.

The Sifri teaches: it is written "You shall love YHVH your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your resources" (Devarim 6:5). How do I know how to go about actually fulfilling this commandment? That is why this verse is followed by "And these matters that I command you today shall be upon your heart. You shall teach them thoroughly to your children and you shall speak of them while you sit in your home, while you walk on the way, when you retire and when you arise." (Ibid. 5) It is by studying the Torah that you will learn to know the Creator. (Maimonedes, the Book of the Mitzvot)

The Mitzvah to love God, clearly concerned with building relationship rather than acquiring knowledge, nevertheless mandates the study of Torah as the method of its fulfillment. It is impossible to form a relationship with an unknown. God is not a fellow human being with whom I can sit in a room and converse or get to know empathetically. God is infinite whereas I am finite and we share no common experience. Empathy is out of the question. Any relationship that I succeed in establishing with Him has to come about through the vehicle of study and knowledge.

Moses prayed and fasted for another 40 days and 40 nights and prayed for Aaron also as YHWH was wroth with him.   YHWH listened to Moses' prayers.

"Only the trees which thou knowest that they be not trees for meat, thou shalt destroy and cut them down; and thou shalt build bulwarks against the city that maketh war with thee, until it be subdued."  (KJV)

Deuteronomy 26:5

"And thou shalt speak and say before the LORD thy God, A Syrian ready to perish was my father, and he went down into Egypt, and sojourned there with a few, and became there a nation, great, mighty, and populous:"  (KJV)

Does this verse indicate that the promise of YHWH in Genesis 12:2 was fulfilled while the Hebrews were sojourning in Egypt?

The Jewish Religion twists this verse to claim that their members were being persecuted.

Passover Haggadah (Hebraic Heritage Ministries International)  (WWW.HEBROOTS.ORG)  (06/10/12)

ALL: And it is this that has stood by our fathers and us; for not one alone that has risen up against us to destroy us, but in every generation they rise up against us to destroy us. But the Holy One, blessed be He, delivers us from their hands.

LEADER: Go and learn what Laban the Aramean planned to do to Jacob our father, for Pharaoh decreed solely that the male children should be put to death, but Laban had planned to uproot all, as it is said:

ALL: And you shall answer and say before the Lord your God: "The Aramean sought to destroy my father, and he went down to Egypt and sojourned there, few in number; and there he became a nation, great, mighty, and populous"--Deuteronomy 26:5

If the Hebrews were so persecuted in Egypt how did they become a "a nation, great, mighty, and populous"?  In the beginning of their stay in Egypt, the Hebrews were given the very best land to live in (Genesis 47:6).  That does not seem to be an act of persecution.

 64 And the LORD shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone.

Jeremiah 34:17
Nehemiah 1:8

Deuteronomy 29:9

"Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do."  (KJV)

Keep the words of the Covenant and do them.

Deuteronomy 30

This chapter addresses the return to the land of Israel.

Deuteronomy 30:1-5

YHWH told the people that they return to HIS ways, he will collect them from the ends of the earth and bring them back to the promised land.

Deuteronomy 30:6

Moses tells the people that YHWH will circumcise their hear and the heart of their seed.

Deuteronomy 30:12

'It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?'  (KJV)

This is the verse that the rabbis use to usurp YHWH's authority.

Deuteronomy 31:10-11

"10 And Moses commanded them, saying, At the end of every seven years, in the solemnity of the year of release, in the feast of tabernacles,"  (KJV)

"11 When all Israel is come to appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose, thou shalt read this law before all Israel in their hearing."  (KJV)

Every seven (7) years at the feast of tabernacles...
the Torah is to be read to all Israel.

Deuteronomy 31:12

"12 Gather the people together, men and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:"  (KJV)

The Torah is to be read to all Israel including the 'stranger that is within thy gates'.

Deuteronomy 31:13

"13 And that their children, which have not known any thing, may hear, and learn to fear the LORD your God, as long as ye live in the land whither ye go over Jordan to possess it."  (KJV)

The children and everyone is to learn and obey.

YHWH certainly predicted this one correctly.

Deuteronomy 31:17

"17 Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us?"  (KJV)

YHWH certainly predicted this one correctly.

Deuteronomy 31:18

"18 And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods."  (KJV)

The people brought this misery upon themselves.

Deuteronomy 31:19

"19 Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel."  (KJV)

YHWH wrote a song that would be a witness against the children of Israel.
What is this song?

Deuteronomy 31:20

"20 For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant."  (KJV)

YHWH certainly predicted this one correctly.  The people broke his covenant.

Deuteronomy 31:21

"21 And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware."  (KJV)

YHWH knew what the people would do in the future.

Deuteronomy 31:26

"26 Take this book of the law, and put it in the side of the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God, that it may be there for a witness against thee."  (KJV)

The book of the law of Moses is beside the ark of the covenant, not in it..

Deuteronomy 31:27

"27 For I know thy rebellion, and thy stiff neck: behold, while I am yet alive with you this day, ye have been rebellious against the LORD; and how much more after my death?"  (KJV)

Moses certainly predicted this one correctly.
If you rebel to my face, how much so will you when I'm gone?

Deuteronomy 31:28

"28 Gather unto me all the elders of your tribes, and your officers, that I may speak these words in their ears, and call heaven and earth to record against them."  (KJV)

Is heaven and earth being called to witness this?

Deuteronomy 31:29

"29 For I know that after my death ye will utterly corrupt yourselves, and turn aside from the way which I have commanded you; and evil will befall you in the latter days; because ye will do evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger through the work of your hands."  (KJV)

Moses certainly predicted this one correctly.

Deuteronomy 31:30

"30 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended."  (KJV)

Is this chapter the song?

Deuteronomy 32:4

"He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he."  (KJV)

THE ROCK.

Deuteronomy 32:4

"35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste."  (KJV)

Deuteronomy 34:4

1 - "And an angel of the LORD came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"And the Messenger of YHWH came up from Gilgal to Bokim, and said, "I led you up from Mitsrayim and brought you to the land of which I swore to your fathers, and I said, 'I do not break My covenant with you,"  (The ISR Scriptures)

"And the Malach-YHWH 711  came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Mitzrayim, and have brought you to the land that I swore to your ahvot; and I said, I will never break My brit with you."  (The Restoration Scriptures)

711  - The same Guardian-Metatron that has YHWH's Name speaking in the first person is no doubt Yahshua.

The KJV "An angel of the LORD..." seems to be a mistranslation.  Depending on one's belief, either 'God the Father' or 'God the Son' brought the children of Israel up out of the land of Egypt/Mitsarim.  Since this verse mentions an angel and not God Almighty, it MUST be referring to 'God the Son' or "THE angel of the LORD...".

The Book of 1 Samuel/1 Shemu'ĕl

1 Samuel 5:1-5

 And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod.  (KJV)

 When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon.  (KJV)

 And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again.  (KJV)

 And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him.  (KJV)

 Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day.  (KJV)

Think about where the mark of the beast will be placed!  On the forehead and hand.

1 Samuel 8:4

The people reject YHWH and desire a dynasty

1 Samuel 13:14

YHWH rejects Saul and selects David

1 Samuel 15:1

Samuel also said unto Saul, The LORD sent me to anoint thee to be king over his people, over Israel: now therefore hearken thou unto the voice of the words of the LORD.

Samuel annoits Saul as king over YHWH's people.

1 Samuel 15:19-23

19 Wherefore then didst thou not obey the voice of the LORD, but didst fly upon the spoil, and didst evil in the sight of the LORD?

20 And Saul said unto Samuel, Yea, I have obeyed the voice of the LORD, and have gone the way which the LORD sent me, and have brought Agag the king of Amalek, and have utterly destroyed the Amalekites.

21 But the people took of the spoil, sheep and oxen, the chief of the things which should have been utterly destroyed, to sacrifice unto the LORD thy God in Gilgal.

22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.

Micah 6:8

23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

To hear and obey is more pleasing to YHWH than sacrifices.

1 Samuel 15:28

28 And Samuel said unto him, The LORD hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day, and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.

YHWH takes the kingdom of Israel away from Saul.

1 Samuel 17:8 & 16

Verse 8 together with verse 16 show that the Israelites maintained their battle lines for 40 days which disputes the claim by lunar sabbatarians that the Hebrews didn't fight on the Sabbath.

1 Samuel 20

"And David said unto Jonathan, Behold, to morrow is the new moon, and I should not fail to sit with the king at meat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field unto the third day at even."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"And Dawid said to Yehonathan, "See, tomorrow is the New Moon, and I ought to sit with the sovereign to eat. But let me go, and I shall hide in the field until the third day at evening.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

"And Dawid said to Yonathan, See, tomorrow is the Rosh Chodesh, and I should be sitting with the melech to eat: but let me go, that I may hide myself in the field until the third day at evening."  (The Restoration Scriptures)

"So David said to Jonathan, Behold, tomorrow is the Chodesh, and I ought to sit down to eat with the king. But let me go, that I may hide myself in the field until the third evening."  (Interlinear 1st Samuel)

New moon.  This chapter contains clues as to the Biblical month.

"If Israelite society at the time of King Saul, when the prophet Samuel was still alive, was using a calculation to determine the start of the next month, there would have been no point in having two successive days of festive meals associated with the new moon, which shows an uncertainty of which day among two successive days that would start the month. Thus no calculated calendar could have been used at this time of Israel's history. Ancient Israel did not employ predictive astronomy for their calendar."

1 Samuel 24:1-13

When King Shaul was delivered into David’s hand in the cave, David would not strike Shaul down, for Shaul was YHWH’s anointed government leader.

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF 1 SAMUEL:

Battle of Gilboa is detailed in chapters 28-31.

King Saul and his sons die, including David's friend Johnathan.

This divided the nation of Israel with the Phillistines in the middle.

Judah to the south, the house of Israel to the north.

1 Kings 3

The story of Solomon's wisdom.

1 Kings 3:8

"And thy servant is in the midst of thy people which thou hast chosen, a great people, that cannot be numbered nor counted for multitude."  (KJV)

This verse implies that the covenant promise that YHWH made to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 has been fulfilled through the kingdoms of David and Solomon.  I am unaware of any scripture that states this great nation will endure forever.  Since the Hebrews were exiled from the land by the Asyrians and Babylonians, I do not think that modern day Jews or Israelis can claim to once again be this great nation.  I will need to verify this theory with what is written in Deuteronomy 26:5 and Galatians 3:16.

1 Kings 6

Solomon builds the temple.

1 Kings 8

Solomon dedicates the temple.

1 Kings 9:2

YHWH appears before Solomon.

"And the LORD said unto him, I have heard thy prayer and thy supplication, that thou hast made before me: I have hallowed this house, which thou hast built, to put my name there for ever; and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually."  (KJV)

1 Kings 9:21

"21 Their children that were left after them in the land, whom the children of Israel also were not able utterly to destroy, upon those did Solomon levy a tribute of bondservice unto this day."  (KJV)

1 Kings 9:22

"22 But of the children of Israel did Solomon make no bondmen: but they were men of war, and his servants, and his princes, and his captains, and rulers of his chariots, and his horsemen."  (KJV)

So only the Israeli's could make war?

1 Kings 11

This chapter details where Solomon went wrong with the multiple wives he had.  It also details the false gods he was corrupted with and how the 12 tribes would be split up.  Jeroboam flees into Egypt until the death of Solomon.

1 Kings 11:1

"But king Solomon loved many strange women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moabites, Ammonites, Edomites, Zidonians, and Hittites:"  (KJV)

"And Sovereign Shelomoh loved many foreign women in addition to the daughter of Pharaoh: Mo’abite, Ammonite, Edomite, Tsidonian, and Hittite women;"  (The ISR Scriptures)

"But melech Shlomo loved many strange 894 women, together with the daughter of Pharaoh, women of the Moavites, Ammonites, Edomites, Tzidonians, and Hittites;"  (The Restoration Scriptures)

894 - Strangers to Torah.

"Now King Solomon loved many foreign women along with the daughter of Pharaoh: Moabite, Ammonite, Edomite, Sidonian, and Hittite women,"  (Interlinear 1 Kings)

"And Solomon did evil in the sight of the LORD, and went not fully after the LORD, as did David his father."  (KJV)

"Solomon did what was evil in the sight of YHWH, and did not follow YHWH fully, as David his father had done."  (Interlinear 1 Kings)

Solomon does evil in the sight of YHWH.

1 Kings 11:11

"11 Wherefore the LORD said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant."  (KJV)

895 - As punishment for Solomon’s mixed worship the House of Dawid, or the 12 tribes, would be divided into two houses with ten tribes going to his servant.

1 Kings 11:11-13

YHWH tells Solomon he will rend his Kingdom.
The prophet Ahijah rips it into twelve pieces.
Ten for Jeroboam.
One for Rayoboam (to keep a Kingdom always under the line of David).

1 Kings 11:17

Rayoboam to rule over the house of Judah.

1 Kings 11:19-20

Jeroboam to rule the ten northern tribes.
Rehoboam was Solomon's son and rightful heir to the throne of the twelve tribes.
Jeroboam was the son of Nebat.

1 Kings 12:2

"And it came to pass, when Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who was yet in Egypt, heard of it, (for he was fled from the presence of king Solomon, and Jeroboam dwelt in Egypt;)"  (KJV)

Jeroboam was still hiding out in Egypt when Rehoboam was going to become King.

1 Kings 12:3

"That they sent and called him. And Jeroboam and all the congregation of Israel came, and spake unto Rehoboam, saying,"  (KJV)

Jeroboam and all of Israel came to Rehoboam.

1 Kings 12:7

"And they spake unto him, saying, If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants for ever."  (KJV)

The advisors of King Solomon advised Rehoboam to be a fair King and serve his people.

1 Kings 12:8

"But he forsook the counsel of the old men, which they had given him, and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him, and which stood before him:"  (KJV)

Rehoboam ignored the counsil of his father's (King Solomon) advisors and consulted his friends.

1 Kings 12:11

"11 And now whereas my father did lade you with a heavy yoke, I will add to your yoke: my father hath chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions."  (KJV)

Rehoboam's friends advised him to be crueler than his father was.

1 Kings 12:16

"16 So when all Israel saw that the king hearkened not unto them, the people answered the king, saying, What portion have we in David? neither have we inheritance in the son of Jesse: to your tents, O Israel: now see to thine own house, David. So Israel departed unto their tents."  (KJV)

The 10 northern tribes rejected Rehoboam as King.

The ten northern tribes rejected Rehoboam as King because he was cruel.

1 Kings 12:17

"17 But as for the children of Israel which dwelt in the cities of Judah, Rehoboam reigned over them."  (KJV)

Rehoboam ruled over the house of Judah.  The tribe of Judah served Rehoboam as King.

1 Kings 12:19

"19 So Israel rebelled against the house of David unto this day."  (KJV)

Israel (the 10 northern tribes) rejected Rehoboam as King.

1 Kings 12:20

"20 And it came to pass, when all Israel heard that Jeroboam was come again, that they sent and called him unto the congregation, and made him king over all Israel: there was none that followed the house of David, but the tribe of Judah only."  (KJV)

The 10 northern tribes made Jeroboam their King.

1 Kings 12:24

"Thus saith the LORD, Ye shall not go up, nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel: return every man to his house; for this thing is from me. They hearkened therefore to the word of the LORD, and returned to depart, according to the word of the LORD."  (KJV)

Rehoboam tries to reunite the twelve tribes by force but YHWH tells him not to.  YHWH makes it clear that Israel's Kingdom was torn in two by the Almighty Himself.  YHWH tells Rehoboam not to fight against the children of Israel because He caused this rebellion for His purpose.

1 Kings 12:26-33

Jeroboam becomes paranoid that the ten Northern tribes will return to the house of David (even under Rehoboam) and profanes against YHWH by building two golden calves to worship and changing the feasts.

1 Kings 12:28

"28 Whereupon the king took counsel, and made two calves of gold, and said unto them, It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem: behold thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt."  (KJV)

Big mistake!

1 Kings 12:31

"31 And he made an house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people, which were not of the sons of Levi."  (KJV)

He profaned the priesthood!

1 Kings 12:32

"32 And Jeroboam ordained a feast in the eighth month, on the fifteenth day of the month, like unto the feast that is in Judah, and he offered upon the altar. So did he in Bethel, sacrificing unto the calves that he had made: and he placed in Bethel the priests of the high places which he had made."  (KJV)

He profaned the feast days!

1 Kings 13

Jeroboam is visited by a man of YHWH with a prophecy.

1 Kings 14:1

The son of Jeroboam gets sick.

1 Kings 14:2

Jeroboam tells his wife to disguise herself and visit Ahijah the prophet to ask what will become of their son.

1 Kings 14:6-16

Ahijah tells Jeroboam's wife that the child will die and that Jeroboam will also be destroyed for the sins that he committed.

1 Kings 14:17

Jeroboam's child dies.

1 Kings 14:20

Jeroboam reigned for 22 years.

1 Kings 14:21

Raehobaom reigned for 17 years.
This verse states that Jerusalem is the city which YHWH chose to put HIS name.
Rehoboam's mother's name was Naamah and she was an Ammonitess.  She was of the house of Ammon who was of the house of Lot.

1 Kings 14:22-24

Judah did evil in the sight of YHWH and this verse details some of their transgressions.

1 Kings 14:31

This is the second verse that says Rehoboam's mother's name was Naamah and she was an Ammonitess.  There seems to be some significance to this fact.

1 Kings 16:29

The reign of Ahab begins.

1 Kings 16:31

The first principle operating in Ahab was that he considered the things of Yahweh as trivial.  He looked on the sins of Jeroboam as trivial.
Another factor operating in Ahab was his marriage to Jezebel, princess of the Zidonians, who were all heathens and demon worshippers.  Ahab knew the prohibitions against such marriages to heathens. By this he showed his low esteem for the institution of marriage and the commandments of Yahweh.  It is very likely that Ahab married for convenience, lust, and political advantage.

1 Kings 16:32

Ahab built an altar in Baal's temple which he had built in Samaria.

1 Kings 16:34

"In his days did Hiel the Bethelite build Jericho: he laid the foundation thereof in Abiram his firstborn, and set up the gates thereof in his youngest son Segub, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Joshua the son of Nun."  (KJV)

Joshua 6:26

When Israel came in to reoccupy Canaan, the first city destroyed was Jericho.  Joshua pronounced a curse on it that whosoever laid the foundations of the city would cause his firstborn to die and whoever lifted up the gates thereof would cause his second born to die.

This verse mentions Hiel/Hi'ĕl the Bethelite and does not mention a tribal affliation.  Does this mean Hiel/Hi'ĕl was not a Hebrew?

1 Kings 17

The story of Elijah and the widow woman of Zidon who fed him.  There were at least three miracles done in this chapter.

1 Kings 17:22

Elijah called upon YHWH to bring the widow's son back to life.

1 Kings 18

The story of Elijah proving his God was the one true God.

1 Kings 19

Elihah annoits Elisha.

"But it came to pass, when Ahab was dead, that the king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel."  (KJV)

I wonder why the king of Moab rebelled after Ahab died?

The king of Moab rebelled against the king of Israel after Ahab died.  I wonder why the king of Moab rebelled after Ahab died?
This is interesting as the kingdom of Moab is on the other side of the Dead/Salt sea and is bordered on the north by Ammon and on the south by Edom.  Moab would seem to be more a threat to the house of Judah than the house of Israel.  Since there is no mention of a rebellion by Ammon, I wonder if Moab is just trying to break away from the king of the house of Israel.

2 Kings 3:7

The king of the house of Israel asked the king of the house of Judah for help against the king of Moab and the king of Judah agreed.

2 Kings 3:12

"1 - In the seventeenth year of Pekah the son of Remaliah Ahaz the son of Jotham king of Judah began to reign."  (KJV)

"2 - Twenty years old was Ahaz when he began to reign, and reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not that which was right in the sight of the LORD his God, like David his father."  (KJV)

"4 - And he sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places, and on the hills, and under every green tree."  (KJV)

"5 - Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah son of Remaliah king of Israel came up to Jerusalem to war: and they besieged Ahaz, but could not overcome him."  (KJV)

"6 - At that time Rezin king of Syria recovered Elath to Syria, and drave the Jews from Elath: and the Syrians came to Elath, and dwelt there unto this day."  (KJV)

II Kings 16:1-6 briefly summarizes one of the many wars between the Kingdom of Judah in the south and the Kingdom of Israel to its north. Appearing in this passage is the first occurrence of the word Jew in God's Word.

In the seventeenth year of Pekah, . . . Ahaz, . . . king of Judah, began to reign. Ahaz . . . did not do what was right in the sight of the LORD his God. . . . Then Rezin king of Syria and Pekah, . . . king of Israel, came up to Jerusalem to make war; and they besieged Ahaz but could not overcome him. At that time Rezin king of Syria captured Elath for Syria, and drove the men of Judah from Elath. The King James Version translates "men of Judah" with the single word Jews. During the military campaign outlined above, the Syrians captured the port city of Elath from Judah, driving the Jews out.

The term Jew usually refers to a person from the tribe of Judah. In fact, Jew is a shortened, or what semanticists call a "clipped," form of the word Judah. Strictly speaking, a Jew is genetically a member of the tribe of Judah; that is, the term Jew refers to a person who has descended from Jacob's son, Judah. The Jews make up one tribe of the children of Israel, the tribe of Judah, whose homeland was in the southern part of Canaan. The Jews, then, form only a subset of a much larger group of people, the children of Israel. Of course, the Kingdom of Judah had in it individuals descended from the tribes Judah, Levi, and Benjamin. Today, Jews (for the most part) do not differentiate between these three tribes. A modern Jew, more likely than not, is descended from the tribe of Judah or the tribe of Benjamin or the tribe Levi—few, if any, know specifically from which tribe. Moreover, few even give the matter much thought, so irrelevant today have the tribes become as social and political entities.

The term Jew is not interchangeable with the term Israel. While all Jews are Israelites, not all Israelites are Jews!

There is an important distinction between them. Today, a Jew is an individual descended through one of three tribes. However, the term Israel has a number of broader meanings, all derived from the fact that Israel was the name God gave the patriarch Jacob.

The word Israel can refer to a person. When used this way, it refers specifically to the patriarch Jacob, whose name God changed to Israel (see Genesis 32:28).

The word Israel often refers to all the descendents of Jacob. Hence, "the children of Israel," a term much used in the Pentateuch, refers to individuals from all the tribes—literally, all the descendents of the man Jacob (Israel).

After the fissure of the Davidic monarchy, the term Israel came to have a more specific national meaning. Used in this collective sense, Israel refers to those Israelites who were citizens of the Kingdom of Israel, the ten tribes of the northern kingdom.

Often, the Scriptures use the word Israel in a specialized, limited way, where it refers only to the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh. Jacob, remember, began his blessing on the two boys with the statement, "Let my name be named upon them" (Genesis 48:16).

These differences are more than "shades of meaning," or nuances. Readers of God's Word need to keep a keen eye on both the words Jew and Israel, ensuring that they understand their proper meaning in context.

2 Kings 16:6

This is the first time the Hebrews are called Jews.  I think this is a mistranslation in the KJV.

2 Kings 17:1

In the twelfth (12th) year of Ahaz, king of Judah, Hoshea began his rule over Israel that would last for nine year.

2 Kings 17:2

Hoshea did that which was evil in the sight of YHWH but not the same as the kings before him.

2 Kings 17:3

Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria, came against Hoshea and made him a servant.

The final fall of Efrayim-Yisrael under Shalmaneser.

2 Kings 17:4

And the king of Assyria found conspiracy in Hoshea: for he had sent messengers to So king of Egypt, and brought no present to the king of Assyria, as he had done year by year: therefore the king of Assyria shut him up, and bound him in prison.

Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria, came against Hoshea and made him a servant.

Conspiracy

2 Kings 17:5

Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria, found conspiracy in Hoshea and bound him in prison.

2 Kings 17:6

Shalmaneser, the king of Assyria, came up throughout the land and besieged Samaria for three (3) years.

2 Kings 17:6

'In the ninth year of Hoshea the king of Assyria took Samaria, and carried Israel away into Assyria, and placed them in Halah and in Habor by the river of Gozan, and in the cities of the Medes.'  (KJV)

2 Kings 17:7-17

These verses detail what the children of Israel did that was against YHWH.

2 Kings 17:13

13 Yet the LORD testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets.

What YHWH said to the prophets is also considered Torah.

2 Kings 17:20

"20 And the LORD rejected all the seed of Israel, and afflicted them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, until he had cast them out of his sight."  (KJV)

YHWH rejects Israel in this verse.

2 Kings 17:23

Israel is exiled to Assyria.

2 Kings 17:24

'And the king of Assyria brought men from Babylon, and from Cuthah, and from Ava, and from Hamath, and from Sepharvaim, and placed them in the cities of Samaria instead of the children of Israel: and they possessed Samaria, and dwelt in the cities thereof.'  (KJV)

2 Kings 17:25-28

The new inhabitants did not fear YHWH so HE sent lions among them to kill some of them.

The new inhabitants told the king of Assyria that they did not know the manner of the God of the land.

The king of Assyria commanded that a Hebrew priest be brought back to live among them and teach them the manner of the land.  One of the priests came and dwelt in Bethel and taught them how to fear YHWH

2 Kings 17:29

The new inhabitants made gods of their own.

2 Kings 17:34

"34 Unto this day they do after the former manners: they fear not the LORD, neither do they after their statutes, or after their ordinances, or after the law and commandment which the LORD commanded the children of Jacob, whom he named Israel;"  (KJV)

If the Torah is only for the Hebrew people, why is it mentioned here in relation to the Gentiles living in the land.

2 Kings 17:41

"41 So these nations feared the LORD, and served their graven images, both their children, and their children's children: as did their fathers, so do they unto this day."  (KJV)

If the Torah is only for the Hebrew people, why is it mentioned here in relation to the Gentiles living in the land.
Sounds like modern day Christianity.

2 Kings 21

This appears to be a very central chapter as a number of issues and concepts are mentioned.

The sins of Manasseh are detailed in this chapter.

The sins of Manasseh are also detailed in 2 Chronicles 33

2 Kings 21:1

"Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah."  (KJV)

Manasseh became king at 12 years of age.
Manasseh ruled for 55 years; he would be 67 years old at that time.
Manasseh's mother was named Hephzibah.

2 Kings 21:2

"And he did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, after the abominations of the heathen, whom the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."  (KJV)

Manasseh did evil in the sight of YHWH.

2 Kings 21:4

"And he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name."  (KJV)

"...which the LORD said, In Jerusalem will I put my name."

The Place Where YHWH Places HIS Name (KEYS)

2 Kings 21:7

"And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which the LORD said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever:"  (KJV)

The place where YHWH has placed HIS name forever is at the temple in Jerusalem.

2 Kings 22:1

Josiah/Yoshiyahu was a good king and ruled from 639-608 B.C. ruled for 31 years (7th Century B.C.)

Amon ruled before Josiah/Yoshiyahu 641-640 B.C. 2 year rule.

Jehoahaz rulled after Josiah/Yoshiyahu 608 B.C. ruled 3 months.

2 Kings 22:2

Josiah/Yoshiyahu was a good king.

2 Kings 22:8

"And Hilqiyahu the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, "I have found the Book of the Torah in the House of YHWH." And Hilqiyah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it."  (The ISR Scriptures)

The high priest found a torah scroll and gave it to the scribe.

2 Kings 22:11-13

When Josiah/Yoshiyahu heard what was written on the Torah scroll he repented.

2 Kings 24

Establishes a link between the exile of Judah and the sins of Manasseh.

The Babylonian kings conquest of Jerusalem and the Hebrew kingdom going into exile in Babylon.

2 Kings 24:14

14 And he carried away all Jerusalem, and all the princes, and all the mighty men of valour, even ten thousand captives, and all the craftsmen and smiths: none remained, save the poorest sort of the people of the land.  (KJV)

After the exile of the house of Judah to Babylon, the poorest people remained in the holy land.

2 Kings 25:12

This story is retold in Jeremiah 39 and Jeremiah 52

After the exile of the house of Judah to Babylon, the captain of the guard let poorest people remained in the land.  This is the second time the poor were overlooked by the invading armies. (2 Kings 24:14)

I need to research this theme as I recently read a story where an notable person in Scripture avoided being captured by an invader by pretending to be a peasant.

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF 2nd KINGS:

 

REFERENCE LINKS FOR THE BOOK OF 2nd KINGS:

 

 

The Book of Isaiah/Yeshayahu

Isaiah 1:3

"The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib: but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider."  (KJV)

Isaiah is saying that his people are ignorant of who their owner and master is.

Isaiah 1:4

"Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward."  (KJV)

Isaiah is not speaking well of his nation.

Isaiah 1:5

"Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint."  (KJV)

Isaiah is not speaking well of his nation.

Isaiah 1:6

"From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither mollified with ointment."  (KJV)

Isaiah is not speaking well of his nation

Isaiah 1:9

"Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah."  (KJV)

He is saying that if YHWH hadn't left a remnant, no one would be left.

Isaiah 1:17

"Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow."   (KJV)

Translation difference.

'Learn to do good! Seek right-ruling, reprove the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.'  (The Besorah of YAHUSHA)

'"Learn to do good! Seek right-ruling, reprove the oppressor, defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'Learn to do tov; seek mishpat, relieve the oppressed, defend the fatherless, and plead for the widow.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

Isaiah 1:13

"13 Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting. "  (KJV)

If you don't obey, your praise & prayers are an abomination.

Isaiah 1:14

"14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them. "  (KJV)

By keeping their civic calendar and modifying YHWH's calendar so that it became a calculated calendar rather than an observational calendar, the Hebrews began celebrating YHWH's feasts (mo'ed) and appointed times (mo'edim) on the wrong days. This meant that these events were now MAN's feasts and appointed times and NOT YHWH's. That is why they became an abomination to YHWH.

Isaiah 1:15

"15 And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. "  (KJV)

YHWH does not listen to killers.

Isaiah 1:23

"Thy princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them."   (KJV)

Translation difference.

'Your rulers are rebellious, and are companions of thieves: everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards: they do not defend the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow concern them.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

Isaiah is not speaking well of ANY of the princes.

Isaiah 1:28

"28 And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed. "  (KJV)

Judgement day

Isaiah 2:2-3

"And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it."   (KJV)

"And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem."   (KJV)

ALL nations shall flow unto it.

Isaiah 3:12

"As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."   (KJV)

Translation difference.

""My people! Youths exert pressure on them, and women rule over them. O My people! Your leaders lead you astray, and swallow the way of your paths.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

- 9:16

'As for My people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O My people, those who lead you cause you to go astray, and destroy the derech of your paths. 1050 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1050  - To this very day the leaders of Jewish-Yisrael cause the fold to go astray from the King Messiah Yahshua. Do not follow, or chase after their approval, or counsel.

Isaiah 4:2

YAHUSHUA Messiah as the branch.

Isaiah 5

"20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"   (KJV)

YHWH's Torah contrasted

Isaiah 6:10

"Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. "   (KJV)

Translation difference.

"For the levim of these people are darkened and their ears are heavy, and their eyes are closed; so that they cannot see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their levim, and make teshuvah, to be forgiven and healed. 1075  1076 "  (The ISR Scriptures)

1075  - When Yisrael refuses understanding and perception, their heart, like that of Pharaoh, just grows hard like wax.

1076  - Peshitta. 

"Make the heart of this people fat, and their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and shall turn and be healed. "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

- This prophecy of reproof is repeated six times in the Messianic Scriptures, therefore a total of seven times. 

Isaiah 7:14

"Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."  KJV

This appears to be a mistranslation.

The Christian idea of a virgin birth is derived from the verse in Isaiah 7:14 describing an "alma" as giving birth. The word "alma" has always meant a young woman, but Christian theologians came centuries later and translated it as "virgin." This accords Jesus' birth with the first century pagan idea of mortals being impregnated by gods.

Translation difference.

"Therefore YHWH Himself gives you a sign: Look, the maiden conceives and gives birth to a Son, and shall call His Name Immanu’ĕl. k"  (The ISR Scriptures)

k - Ĕl with us.

Isaiah 8:6 KJV

"Forasmuch as this people refuseth the waters of Shiloah that go softly, and rejoice in Rezin and Remaliah's son;"  (KJV)

Isaiah 8:7 KJV

1114  - Efrayim’s impending doom.

Isaiah 8:8 KJV

"And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel."  (KJV)

Translation difference.

'"And he shall pass through Yehudah, he shall overflow and pass over, reaching up to the neck. And the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of Your land, O Immanu’ĕl.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'And he shall pass through Yahudah; 1115  he shall overflow and pass over, he shall reach even to the neck; and by the stretching out of his wings he shall fill thewidth of your land, O Emmanu-El.' 1116  1117   (The Restoration Scriptures)

1115  - Threaten but not capture Judah.

1116  - Here the land of Yisrael is called Emanu-El, a title, further proving that this is not the actual name of the coming Messiah, but merely a title.

'"Do not say, ‘A conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'Do not regard as an alliance what this nation calls an alliance; neither fear what they fear; nor be troubled by them.' 1120   (The Restoration Scriptures)

1120  - Efrayim’s alliance will fail, for he does not align himself with YHWH of Hosts.

Isaiah 8:13 KJV

"Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread."  (KJV)

Translation difference.

'"YHWH of hosts, Him you shall set apart.  Let Him be your fear, and let Him be your dread.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'And He shall be for a Place of Refuge; 1122  but for a Stone of stumbling and for a Rock of offence 1123  to both the houses of Yisrael, 1124  as a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Yahrushalayim.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1122  - For those who desire Him to be so.

1123  - Messiah-YHWH was that Stumbling Stone according to Acts 4:11,  Ephesians 2:20,  First Peter 2:4-8.

1124  - Both houses have stumbled over the coming of Messiah Yahshua, as prophesied here. Judah rejected the living Torah, YHWH’s Son, and is blind. Efrayim, or non-Jewish Yisrael has rejected their identity as the other house of Yisrael, along with their responsibilities to live in the eternal ways of the written Torah, and are therefore blind as well. In order for Efrayim, or non-Jewish Yisrael to stumble at Messiah Yahshua’s arrival, by definition they had to be in existence to the supernatural eye of YHWH, even though the natural eye had lost track of them some 721 years before the Stumbling Stone arrived.

BOTH the houses of Israel/Yisra'ĕl!

Isaiah 8:15 KJV

"And many among them shall stumble, and fall, and be broken, and be snared, and be taken."  (KJV)

Translation difference.

'Bind up the witness, seal the Torah among my taught ones.'  (The ISR Scriptures)

1131  - Yahshua the eternal brought-forth Son of YHWH speaks in the first person, as the Father YHWH gave all His children/disciples to Him, along with all other things such as Yahshua’s power and His authority

1132  - Yahshua’s disciples are ordained to “perform miracles” in Yisrael amongst both houses, as seen in Mark 16:15 - 18 and Luke 10:16 to reveal to the world that they are Yahshua’s Yisraelite children.

Isaiah 8:19 KJV

1133  - Both houses have long been involved with various forms of witchcraft.

1134  - Only the blind.

1135  - We must never ask the traditional rabbinical leaders who willfully reject Yahshua the risen and living Messiah anything concerning Him, as we are forbidden to seek answers about the living one from the spiritually dead.

Isaiah 8:20 KJV

"To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them."  (KJV)

Isaiah tells us that the law [Torah] and the testimony [of the prophets] are the gold standard for truth, and anything that speaks not according to this word has no light in it.

- Or light.

'To the Torah and to the testimony: 1136  if they speak not according to this Word, 1137  it is because there is no Light in them.' 1138   (The Restoration Scriptures)

1136  - True Yisraelites run to both the testimony of His resurrection, along with a life grounded in Torah-obedience.

1137  - Messiah Yahshua and Torah.

1138  - The blindness of both houses does not allow light to enter, when one of the two key parts of true faith are missing.

1159  - Yahshua.

1160  - The Light to remove blindness and death.

1161  - All 12 tribes.

Isaiah 9:10

1174  - The metaphor referring to the promise of physical multiplicity.

1175  - This is a clear word that from between 3-4 billion physical Yisraelites, only a remnant, or as seen earlier in Isaiah about 10 percent, or 400 million will return. Their accommodations will be in the "Greater Yisrael," promised to the patriarchs.

1175  - The very imputed righteousness of Messiah Yahshua Himself.

Isaiah 11:13

"The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off: Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim."  (KJV)

The repairing of the relationship between Ephraim and Judah.

Translation difference.

"the envy of Ephrayim shall turn aside, and the adversaries of Yehudah be cut off. Ephrayim shall not envy Yehudah, and Yehudah not trouble Ephrayim."  (The ISR Scriptures)

"The envy also of Efrayim shall depart, 1212 1213  and the adversaries of Yahudah shall be cut off.1214  Efrayim shall not envy Yahudah,1215  and Yahudah shall not trouble Efrayim.1216 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1212  - The result of Messiah’s work. Efrayim’s desire to be Yisrael again will be met, and their jealousy towards Judah will cease, as they return as equal heirs in the Commonwealth of Yisrael.

1213  - This grievous envy is best-seen and illustrated in Yahshua’s declaration of the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15.

1214  - Historical enemies such as Edom, Ammon, and Moab. With the help of returning Efrayim, the people of Yisrael will be numerically and militarily stronger, in defense of their national interests.

1215  - Efrayim’s desire has always been to be part of the House of Dawid, and they have been envious of Judah’s strong sense of national identity and family. Through Yahshua, Efrayim can reclaim their role in the House of Dawid, and receive their full citizenship in Yisrael. As such their envy is no longer seen, as it is truly healed.

1216  - Historically Judah has troubled, or vexed Efrayim, by relegating them to different roles and tasks, all designed to send the same message of second-class, or second-tier standing in Yisrael. This is seen historically when Efrayimites were identified as traitors from the House of Saul, as well as when they were under compulsory slave labor to Judah in the days before Jeroboam was raised up as king, and down through the centuries where their image as pagan gentiles was reinforced by Judah, as Judah refused to accept them back into the fold, viewing Efrayim as the eternal apostates, or the “black sheep” of the family. This denial, or vexation even resulted in madeup doctrines of men, whereby Efrayim was said to be lost, or the “lost ten tribes,” thereby affording Judah the luxury of not having to extend recognition to Efrayim, since they were allegedly missing in action. This vexing continues to this day as most “Messianic” organizations do not recognize Efrayim, and have not reckoned them as returning Yisrael, but as being merely “Messianic gentiles,” or gentiles with a “Jewish heart.” But when Messiah returns, both houses will be in peace with each other, and Judah will no longer be allowed to vex his brother.

Isaiah 11:14

"But they shall fly upon the shoulders of the Philistines toward the west; they shall spoil them of the east together: they shall lay their hand upon Edom and Moab; and the children of Ammon shall obey them."  (KJV)

Translation difference.

"But they shall fly down upon the shoulder of the Philistines toward the west; together they plunder the people of the east, their hand stretching forth on Edom and Mo’ab, and the children of Ammon shall be subject to them."  (The ISR Scriptures)

"But they 1217  shall fly upon the shoulders of the Plishtim 1218  toward the west; 1219  they shall plunder them of the east together 1220  they shall lay their hands upon Edom and Moav; and the children of Ammon shall be subjected and obey them. 1221 1222 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1217  - Both houses.

1218  - Arabs in Gaza, the same home of the ancient Philistines. Even without a physical connection to the Philistines, they both live in the same land, and both are led by the same hatred of Zion.

1219  - Fly them westward.

1220  - Together both houses will fight the eastern front as well as the west.

1221  - These verses 14-15, and Obadiah 1:18-19 teach in the simplest possible terms, that the Jewish people will never ever conquer the Palestinians, Arabs, Edomites, or the sons of Esau, until they are reunited to Efrayim with one heart, one Spirit and one accord, into one massive army, through the reconciliation of Jewish-Yisrael with non-Jewish-Yisrael. We (believers) will continue to struggle and fight ourselves, over the question of “who is the real Yisrael,” instead of both camps recognizing the other house as also being legitimate heirs in Yisrael. Only a reunited Yisrael in these final last days of humanity will be able to overthrow the nefarious forces of Islam. This can become a reality in our lifetime. Islam cannot stand against a united Yisrael, for greater is He that is in us, than He that is in the world. We must look upon Efrayim in our midst, with great favor and grant them the recognition they deserve, so that they can take their rightful place in national Yisrael as physical, Spirit-filled, co-heirs, who are willing to join in military and spiritual warfare operations against Yisrael’s historic enemies. We will receive the consolation of Jacob, only when we preserve the revelation of Jacob, found in Genesis 30:25.

I respectfully disagree with the preceeding statement.  The problem will be solved only by the return of the Messiah.  I am surprised at the author's bias and military mindset in this commentary.

1222  - With a reunified Yisrael, the Middle East problem will end according to Scripture, when the west, along with all Yisrael, puts the Palestinians on airplanes and sends them away. Isaiah 11:14 in its most literal translation reads “they shall fly the Philistines away westward.” Those, who in ignorance fight the two-house restoration, are actually postponing the inevitable Yisraelite victory over our enemies. Instead of worrying exclusively about learning Hebrew and keeping kosher, we should be concerned with victory. Biblical victory can be achieved only by a reunified twohouse, two-front (spiritual and military) solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict (Obadiah 1:18). The spiritual part is our task as we abide in Him who is Yisrael’s Prince. The military part is His work not ours. This truth by no means suggests that militarism is the answer, or militia-type theology, which is anti-Netsarim and wrought with doctrines of hate and superiority. When both houses are back in the Promised Land however, we will be at full force and in our most effective position to finally overcome our enemies.

I respectfully disagree with the preceeding statement.  I am surprised at the author's bias and military mindset in this commentary.

The house of Israel will end up ruling over the people that have taken them captive.
If the Scriptures are true, then this prophecy (and the rest of the chapter) must have already taken place.
Is this pointing to the Parthian empire?

1248  - s.a.tan. "Heilel" means “the shining one."

1249  - Idiomatic expression for “an angel."

1250  - Thrown out from heaven in eternity past.

1251  - The evil of the Babylonian Empire is personified in s.a.tan.  The text therefore goes from one topic in the pashat/literal to the second level in the remez, or hint level, meaning that the first level is spiritually tied into the second level, just as s.a.tan himself is the evil behind the Babylonian Empire, and is tied into that state as its head.  More details can be found at Yahweh’s Fallen Bride at: http://restorationscriptures.org/page10.htm

Lighting the Signal Fires

Ancient Jewish sources describe how signal fires used to announce the sighting of the new moon in the Land of Israel during the days of the Second Temple. The first signal fire was lit on top of the "Mount of Anointing" opposite of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. It consisted of a large bundle of burning poles that were lifted and lowered and moved to and fro. A team of people would continue to wave the signal fire until they saw a second fire ignited miles away on the mountain of Sartaba in the Jordan valley. This continued from mountaintop to mountaintop until the message went forth all the way to Babylon.

These signal fires are mentioned explicitly in the Lachish Letters uncovered by archaeologists from the early 6th century BCE. This may also be what the prophet Isaiah was alluding to this in the verse:

"All you people of the world, you who live on the earth, when a banner (Hebrew: "nes") is raised on the mountains, you will see it, and when a trumpet sounds, you will hear it." Isaiah 18:3

The prophetic significance of these burning banners (Hebrew: "nes"), used to announce the beginning of the biblical month, comes out in another of Isaiah's prophecies:

"In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner ("nes") for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious. He will raise a banner ("nes") for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth." Isaiah 11:10-11

During my recent visit to Israel I had the opportunity to four of the historic mountaintops mentioned in the ancient sources and light a modern-day signal fire. My friend Keith Johnson put together an amazing video documenting this adventure, which brought us into an Israeli army free-fire-zone. Please take 20 minutes to watch the video and get a taste of what it might have been like in ancient Israel to proclaim the new moon to the world: http://youtu.be/f24-f7dPQj4

"I, even I, am YHWH; and beside Me there is no Savior. 1516 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1516  - In many places such as here in the First Covenant and Torah, the double repetitive first person "I, I," or "I even I," or in Hebrew "Ani, Ani" appears as here in Isaiah 43:11, proving once again that Yahshua is not an afterthought.  And neither was He formed after YHWH, but is one of the two eternal "I"-s spoken of in this verse, as Yisrael’s Savior.  "I and I," or "I even I," or "I and also I," is/are the Savior. Both the Father and His Son are both called Messiah/Savior not Saviors. If only Father YHWH is Savior, then the term should read "Ani" not "Ani, Ani."  He is and always will be one, a true compound unity (Mark 12:29).

The Hebrew word havar [1895] only occurs in this one place in the Tanak. From this Hebrew context alone, without any outside knowledge, there is insufficient information to determine the meaning of havar [1895].

Translation Difference

'See, I have graven you 1604  upon the palms of My hands; 1605  your walls 1606  are continually before Me.'  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1604  - This passage has to be referring to the House of Yisrael (Efrayim), since neither of the two major Jewish Diasporas (586 BCE and 70 CE) had yet occurred, when Isaiah was written in 720 BCE.

1605  - Through Yahshua’s impalement, He took the nails because of His love for you, and all Yisrael.

1606  - Your earthly Tabernacle.

I think it is the combination of verses 1-16 that establishes the House of Yisrael as the subject of this prophecy. The subject is a group of people who currently are, or have been, in exile and therefore it cannot be the House of Judah.

'Listen to Me, you that know tzedakah, the people in whose lev is My Torah; fear not the reproach of men, neither be afraid of their insults. 1650 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1650  - Your return to Yisrael must be with full devotion and conviction, or you will lose your inheritance in Zion.

"For you shall not come out with haste, 1682  nor go by flight: 1683  for YHWH will go before you; 1684  and the Elohim of Yisrael will be your reward. 1685 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1682  - We will not come out of the exile in haste, but rather in slow progressive stages.

1683  - Man-made plans will not bring the full restoration and kingdom. Only when YHWH goes before us, are we to make aliyah/immigration and not a nanosecond sooner.

1684  - He alone will lead and plan this restoration and return.

1685  - The end of the exile is not a Jewish experience without Yahshua as King.

"For you shall not go out with haste, nor will you go by flight; for Yahweh is going before you, and the Elohim of Israel gathers you."  (Hebraic Roots Bible)

"But you will not go out in haste, Nor will you go as fugitives; For YHWH will go before you, And the El of Yisrael will be your rear guard."  (Interlinear Isaiah)

Isaiah 53

This chapter speaks to the Messiah's role as the suffering servant.

Isaiah 53:2

The Messiah will be plain looking and not desirable.  He will not be physically attractive.

Isaiah 54:5

"For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole earth shall he be called."  (KJV)

This verse seems to be referring to the Messiah as the husband of his people.  This could mean husband as in spouse or husband as in "animal husbandry".

This verse claims that our maker's name is YHWH of hosts, the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, and the Elohim of all the earth.  It also states that this entity is our redeemer.

"For your Maker is your husband, YHWH of hosts is His Name, and the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl is your Redeemer.  He is called the Elohim of all the earth."  (The ISR Scriptures)

1748   Hebrew: ki baalecha asechah, or “because your Husbands are your Maker.”  We see the plurality of one again in the term “husbands.” Also the Maker is YHWH, and His Redeemer, which in the Hebrew is ve goalecha, or literally “your Redeemers.”  We see the Father and Son in this verse as one in both cases.
1749   Goalecha, or literally “your Redeemers.”
1750   YHWH through Yahshua has taken Efrayim back to be with Judah.

Isaiah 54:10

"10 For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee."  (KJV)

Covenant of peace.

Isaiah 54:17

"No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD."  (KJV)

""No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall prove wrong. This is the inheritance of the servants of YHWH, and their righteousness from Me,” declares YHWH."  (The ISR Scriptures)

Servants of YHWH don't have to be afraid as no weapon formed against them will prosper.

Isaiah 55:8-9

8  "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD."  (KJV)

9  "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts."  (KJV)

There are some that use these verses to claim we are not to understand all that is written in the Scripture.  These verses are referring to YHWH's thoughts and actions, NOT HIS written word.  HE did NOT write the Scriptures so that we would not understand but rather so we would understand and remember.

Isaiah 56:1-8

These verses seem to show that salvation is available to anyone who believes and obeys the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

Isaiah 56:1

"Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed."  (KJV)

1783  - Those who are heirs of salvation must guard the Shabbat and the other eternal ordinances in Torah.

Isaiah 56:3-7

Salvation and eternal life for non-Hebrews.

Isaiah 56:3

"Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

""And let not the son of the foreigner who has joined himself to YHWH speak, saying, 'YHWH has certainly separated me from His people,' nor let the eunuch say, 'Look I am a dry tree.' ""  (The ISR Scriptures)

"Neither let the son of the ger, that has joined himself to YHWH, speak in this manner, saying, YHWH has utterly separated me from His people: neither let the eunuch say, See, I am a dry eytz. 1784 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1784  - Anyone joining Yisrael through Yahshua must never ever utter these forbidden words. No one in the Commonwealth of Yisrael is a stranger, a sojourner, a visitor, a gentile, a eunuch, or any kind of a dry tree. The believer in Yahshua is declared to be righteous and part of the green olive tree of Yisrael. All separations, both physically and spiritually, are forbidden in confession and in practice.

Isaiah 56:4

"For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;"  (KJV)

"For thus said YHWH, “To the eunuchs who guard My Sabbaths, and have chosen what pleases Me, and hold fast to My covenant:"  (The ISR Scriptures)

"For this says YHWH to the eunuchs that keep My Shabbats, and choose the things that please Me, and take hold 1785  of My brit;"  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1785  - A Yisraelite must enter by the blood of Yahshua, but still must decide to “take hold” of Yisraelite culture and lifestyle on a daily basis.

Isaiah 56:5

"Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off."  (KJV)

"Even to them will I give in My Bayit and within My walls 1786  a place and a name better than that of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off. 1787 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1786  - Within the walls of the Renewed Jerusalem.

1787  - This falls in line with Matthew 5:19-21 where those not obeying Torah are least in the kingdom, yet by mercy remain sons and daughters, but have nothing to show for it. The ones here that are Torah-compliant and receive names and positions better than sons, or daughters, are the great ones in the kingdom, with great fruit in this age and the age to come. They will be known as remnant Yisrael, the everlasting name that will never be cut off.

Isaiah 56:6

"Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;"  (KJV)

Translation Difference

""Also the sons of the foreigner who join themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the Name of YHWH, to be His servants, all who guard the Sabbath, and not profane it, and hold fast to My covenant –"  (The ISR Scriptures)

- The gentiles who are grafted in among the True Yisra’ĕlites (the believing and obedient Yehudim). These gentiles also serve YHWH, love His Name and guard His Sabbaths, and hold fast His covenant.

"Also the sons of the ger, that join themselves to YHWH, to serve Him, and to love the Name of YHWH, 1788  to be His avadim, every person that guards the Shabbat from polluting it, and takes hold of My brit; 1789 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

1788  - Loving the true and only eternal Name of YHWH, is a prerequisite for being, or becoming, or staying, Yisrael. The word is simple, and we ought to take heed to it. Learning to love the Name “YHWH” is part of the “taking hold” process, for the redeemed from both houses of Yisrael.

1789  - Even non-biological Yisraelites become Yisrael when they receive salvation, guard His Shabbats and take hold of Torah and Yahshua. They will also be considered full and equal heirs in Yisrael.

Isaiah 56:7

"Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people."  (KJV)

1790  - Mt. Zion.

1791  - Yisrael restored.

1792  - All nations are called to worship as one now and also in the millennial rebuilt Temple, when the Prince Messiah Yahshua, leads us in the true worship of His Father YHWH, using the true Name among all the people. The true faith must be one where all nations, colors, nationalities and races become Yisrael in accord with the “take hold” principle of His Torah.

This verse seems to indicate that the sacrificial system will be in affect during the millenial reign.

1797  - While all this restoration is going on, the beasts, or gentiles (heathens), will not be happy with the change in you, and will come to dissuade you in your personal return to Zion. Expect them to pop out of the forests of misunderstanding.

1798  - Pagan watchmen, or religionists, or even non-believers in the YHWH of restoration. Or, even worse there are Jewish-Yisraelites, who stay in the one-house deception and are classified as watchmen asleep at the wheel, in full ignorance of YHWH’s faithful working amongst Efrayim-Yisrael in these last days.

1799  - Metaphor for gentiles.

Isaiah 58:3

"Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours."  (KJV)

Isaiah 58:12

"12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in."  (KJV)

What breach is being referred to here?
This verse does not say when these people will do these things.  I suspect this will be after the return of the Messiah.

Isaiah 58:13

"If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words:"  (KJV)

The importance of Sabbath

The Sabbath is not a day to do as we please but rather a day to esteem YHWH.

I need to find out what it means to esteem YHWH.  How are we supposed to do this?

"13 "If you do turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on My set-apart day, and shall call the Sabbath 'a delight,' the set-apart day of YHWH 'esteemed,' and shall esteem it, not doing your own ways, nor finding your own pleasure, nor speaking your own words,

1825 - Similar to the attitude a Renewed Covenant Yisraelite is called to have towards the fast days. The Shabbat is a time for YHWH alone, and for His people to serve each other and not themselves. It is a day to focus, concentrate and meditate only on His words and not on ours.

1826 - You will show forth your true motive.

1827 - All Yisraelites become Yisrael by Yahshua’s blood, but still need to be fed "Jacob’s Food" and "Hebraic heritage." That is reciprocal, meaning the hungrier you and I are for obedience and using the fast and Shabbat days for Him, the more kosher spiritual food we will be fed.

1828 - Or, Yahshua Himself.

 

"Isa 58:13 If you turn your foot away because of the Sabbath, from doing what you please on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight, to the holiness of Yahweh, glorified; and shall glorify Him, to the holiness of not doing your own ways, from finding your own pleasure or speaking your own words;

1951  - The majority of both houses.

1952  - Things of Zion.

1953  - G-d’s Table, or the “lord’s table,” from the Hebrew letters gimel, daled.

1954  - Name of a pagan deity of strength, or “troop strength.” Yisraelites would forsake YHWH to worship what they thought was real carnal power. The Hebrew is spelled gimel, daled, with masoretic vowel-pointing making it sound like God, not Gad, in Hebrew. This is close enough of a condemnation of using Gd, or G-d in place of YHWH to be too close for comfort, and as such it is best and safer to stay away from worshiping a generic Gd, especially in light of clarion calls that demand that as Yisrael, we call on YHWH and His true Name alone. For more details see: No G-d For Yisraelites at: http://restorationscriptures.org/page15.htm

1955  - Luck. A deity of good fortune, or luck, which has no place in the life of a believer. The Hebrew is mem, nun, yud. Many Yisraelites used to worship, or trust in “luck,” instead of YHWH, and still do today.

A Nation born in "A Day"  (WWW.KOLHATOR.ORG.IL)  (09/19/11)

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF ISAIAH:

760 - 700 B.C./B.C.E

 

(It appears that Isaiah lived during the time of dominance by the Assyrian Empire.)

 

Isaiah was a prophet in the 8th-century BC Kingdom of Judah. Jews and Christians consider the Book of Isaiah a part of their Biblical canon; he is the first listed (although not the earliest) of the neviim akharonim, the later prophets. Christians believe that Isaiah prophesied the virgin birth of Jesus Christ (Isaiah 7:14, King James version):"Behold, a young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."

Many of the New Testament teachings of Jesus refer to the book of Isaiah.

Gregory of Nyssa (c. 335–395), believes that the Prophet Esaias (Isaiah) "knew more perfectly than all others the mystery of the religion of the Gospel." Jerome (c. 342–420) also lauds the Prophet Esias, saying, "He was more of an Evangelist than a Prophet, because he described all of the Mysteries of the Church of Christ so vividly that you would assume he was not prophesying about the future, but rather was composing a history of past events."

Islam usually regards Isaiah as a Prophet (although he is not mentioned in the Quran). Muslims believe that he was one of the many prophets to have prophesied to the Jews after the reign of King David. He is said to have prophesied about the coming of prophet Muhammad.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

"... Isa 1:1 mentions that Isaiah’s recorded visions were during the reigns of the Judean kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. This approximates the period of Isaiah’s visions as from c. 760 to c. 700 BCE. The Neo-Assyrian period is from c. 1000 to 612 BCE, at the end of which Babylon captured the Assyrian capital of Nineveh (see page xxiv of Rochberg 2004). Hence Isaiah lived during the time of dominance by the Assyrian Empire. Isa 8:4; 10:5-6 is a prophecy that Assyria will soon conquer some of its neighbors. Isa 30:31-33 is a prophecy that Assyria will be defeated. Babylon was south of Assyria, and the Babylonian Empire eventually occupied more than the extent of the Assyrian Empire. Isa 39:5-7 is a prophecy that the House of Judah will be defeated by Babylon. This implies that Babylon would first defeat Assyria, which fully transpired in 612 BCE. During Isaiah’s lifetime, although the Assyrian Empire was politically dominant, the Babylonian Empire also existed to its south. Isa 47:1, 11 is a prophecy that eventually Babylon would be defeated, and Isa 47:13 is a taunt directed at Babylon. The "you" at the start of verse 13 is Babylon."

"Go and cry in the ears of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; I remember thee, the kindness of thy youth, the love of thine espousals, when thou wentest after me in the wilderness, in a land that was not sown."  (KJV)

This verse seems to be saying that a marriage took place at Mount Sinai.

Jeremiah 3:1

"They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man's, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the LORD."  (KJV)

Jeremiah 3:14

"14 Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:"  (KJV)

Jeremiah 3 shows us that Yahweh defines divorce differently than we do in the West (circa 2011 CE). For example, in verse 8 Yahweh says He divorced Ephraim and "put her away," yet in verse 14 He says He is still married to her. Apparently Yahweh does not believe that the divorce terminated His marriage. Rather, it seems Yahweh thinks that the divorce papers only signal the fact that His wife is presently being adulterous (which she will hopefully not be forever).

"Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these."  (KJV)

"For if ye throughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye throughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;"  (KJV)

"If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to your hurt: "  (KJV)

"Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever. "  (KJV)

Sounds conditional to me.  Especially the part about not shedding innocent blood.

Jeremiah 7:18

'The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.'  (KJV)

Who is the 'queen of heaven'?

Probably Astarte/Ashtoreth.

Ashtoreth - the moon goddess of the Phoenicians, representing the passive principle in nature, their principal female deity; frequently associated with the name of Baal, the sun-god, their chief male deity (Judg. 10:6; 1 Sam. 7:4; 12:10)

These names often occur in the plural (Ashtaroth, Baalim), probably as indicating either different statues or different modifications of the deities. This deity is spoken of as Ashtoreth of the Zidonians. She was the Ishtar of the Accadians and the Astarte of the Greeks (Jer. 44:17; 1 Kings 11:5, 33; 2 Kings 23:13).

There was a temple of this goddess among the Philistines in the time of Saul (1 Sam. 31:10). Under the name of Ishtar, she was one of the great deities of the Assyrians. The Phoenicians called her Astarte.

Solomon introduced the worship of this idol (1 Kings 11:33). Jezebel's 400 priests were probably employed in its service (1 Kings 18:19). It was called the “queen of heaven” (Jer. 44:25).

Asherah -

… and plural Asherim in Revised Version, instead of “grove” and “groves” of the King James Version

This was the name of a sensual Canaanitish goddess Astarte, the feminine of the Assyrian Ishtar.

Its symbol was the stem of a tree deprived of its boughs, and rudely shaped into an image, and planted in the ground. Such religious symbols (“groves”) are frequently alluded to in Scripture (Ex. 34:13; Judg. 6:25; 2 Kings 23:6; 1 Kings 16:33, etc.). These images were also sometimes made of silver or of carved stone (2 Kings 21:7; “the graven image of Asherah,” R.V.).

Ishtar -

Assyrian goddess of sexuality, referred to in the Bible as “queen of heaven” (Jeremiah 7:18, 44:17, 25). The name “Ishtar” does not appear in the Bible.

Grove -

1. Hebrew: 'asherah, properly a wooden image, or a pillar representing Ashtoreth, a sensual Canaanitish goddess, probably usually set up in a grove (2 Kings 21:7; 23:4). In the Revised Version the word “Asherah” (q.v.) is introduced as a proper noun, the name of the wooden symbol of a goddess, with the plurals Asherim (Ex. 34:13) and Asheroth (Judg. 3:13).

The LXX. have rendered asherah in 2 Chr. 15:16 by “Astarte.” The Vulgate has done this also in Judg. 3:7.

2. Hebrew: 'eshel (Gen. 21:33). In 1 Sam. 22:6 and 31:13 the Authorized Version renders this word by “tree.” In all these passages the Revised Version renders by “tamarisk tree.” It has been identified with the Tamariscus orientalis, five species of which are found in Palestine.

3. The Hebrew word 'elon, uniformly rendered in the Authorized Version by “plain,” properly signifies a grove or plantation. In the Revised Version it is rendered, pl., “oaks” (Gen. 13:18; 14:13; 18:1; 12:6; Deut. 11:30; Josh. 19:33). In the earliest times groves are mentioned in connection with religious worship. The heathen consecrated groves to particular gods, and for this reason they were forbidden to the Jews (Jer. 17:3; Ezek. 20:28).

Jeremiah 7:31

"31 And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart."  (KJV)

Who were they sacrificing to?

Jeremiah 8:8

"How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain."  (KJV)

2051  - Quoted by Paul in I Corinthians 1:31, further evidence that they were an Efrayimite congregation in exile, since only Yisrael knew YHWH in the first place, and he takes that Scripture given to Yisrael and applies it to the Corinthians.

'but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am YHWH who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things, declares YHWH.'  (Interlinear Jeremiah)

Jeremiah 11

YHWH gives a prophecy to Jeremiah/Yirmeyahu referencing the covenant at Mount Sinai.

Jeremiah 11:9

"9 And YHWH said to me, “There is a conspiracy among the men of Yehudah and among the inhabitants of Yerushalayim." (ISR Scriptures)

I wonder what Jeremiah/Yirmeyahu meant by this?

Jeremiah 11:4

YHWH gives specific instructions on how to be HIS people.

Jeremiah 11:14

YHWH is specifically saying NOT to pray for the people who were disobeying HIM.

Jeremiah 11:16

YHWH calls Israel a green olive tree.

Jeremiah 11:17

YHWH has pronounced judgement on the house of Israel and the house of Judah.

Jeremiah 16:14-15

"14 Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said,The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;"  (KJV)

"15 But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the lands whither he had driven them: and I will bring them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers."  (KJV)

These two verses are very important in that they say, in the future, the Hebrew people will no longer talk of the 1st Exodus but rather they will talk about the 2nd Exodus.  This seems to imply that people will no longer observe Passover after the Messiah returns them to the land.

Jeremiah 16:16

"16 Behold, I will send for many fishers, saith the LORD, and they shall fish them; and after will I send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks."  (KJV)

Fishers and hunters

2099   All nations, either through the fishermen, or the hunters will know all things Hebraic, including His Name, which is YHWH.

Jeremiah 17:1

"The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;"  (KJV)

Interesting that they used the word Judah and not Jews or the house of Judah.

Jeremiah 17:10

"10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. "  (KJV)

There WILL be a judgement.

Jeremiah 20:2

"Then Pashur smote Jeremiah the prophet, and put him in the stocks that were in the high gate of Benjamin, which was by the house of the LORD."  (KJV)

Once again, they don't want to hear what the prophet says unless it's good news.

Jeremiah 22:30

Because Joseph descended from Jeconiah (Matthew 1:11) he fell under the curse of that king that none of his descendants could ever sit as king upon the throne of David. (Jeremiah 22:30; 36:30)

The Jews believe this is evidence that YAHSHUA is not the Messiah.

Jeremiah 23:1

"Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD."  (KJV)

'Woe to the shepherds destroying and scattering the sheep of My pasture!' declares YHWH.  (The ISR Scriptures)

Jeremiah 23:2

"Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD."  (KJV)

Translation difference

'Therefore thus said YHWH Elohim of Yisra'ĕl against the shepherds who feed My people,'

Jeremiah 23:5

"Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth. "  (KJV)

YAHUSHUA Messiah as the branch.

Jeremiah 23:5-6 presents a prophecy of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. 'I will raise unto David a righteous Branch.

He is foretelling the coming of YAHUSHUA the Messiah.

Zechariah 3:8

2120   In the age to come, Judah will be redeemed by the blood of atonement, and Efrayim-Yisrael will dwell safely back in the land having been redeemed and brought back safely by YHWH to the land.

2121   Both houses having their blindness removed.

2122   The King here is called YHWH, as it is YHWH and not a mere man who will restore both houses in salvation and aliyah/immigration. Any man-made attempts to restore both houses apart from Yahshua as King over both houses, is doomed not only to failure, but to His eternal unchanging wrath.

'In His days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely. And this is His name by which He shall be called, Yahweh our Righteousness (Tzedek).  (Hebrew Roots Bible)

Jeremiah 23:5-6 presents a prophecy of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ. Verse 6 says that HE shall be called YHWH our Righteousness!

He is foretelling the coming of YAHUSHUA the Messaih.

Interesting to note that YAHUSHUA will be called YHWH!

Jeremiah 23:7-8

"Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that they shall no more say, The LORD liveth, which brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt; "  (KJV)

"But, The LORD liveth, which brought up and which led the seed of the house of Israel out of the north country, and from all countries whither I had driven them; and they shall dwell in their own land. "  (KJV)

The Lord is supposed to do this, not the United States and/or the Israeli government.

These two verses are very important in that they say, in the future, the Hebrew people will no longer talk of the 1st Exodus but rather they will talk about the 2nd Exodus.  This seems to imply that people will no longer observe Passover after the Messiah returns them to the land.

Jeremiah 23:13

"13 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err."  (KJV)

Ba'al worship AND the prophets caused the people to err.

Jeremiah 23:14

"14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah. "  (KJV)

'And they strengthen the hands of the evil ones. so that no one turns back from his evil.'

Jeremiah 23:20

"20 The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly."  (KJV)

"In the latter days you shall understand it perfectly."

Jeremiah 23:27

"27 Which think to cause my people to forget my name by their dreams which they tell every man to his neighbour, as their fathers have forgotten my name for Baal. "  (KJV)

Ba'al worship.  They have forgotten HIS name.

Jeremiah chapter 24

The two baskets of figs.
I believe this to be a very important chapter in understanding the Hebrews, the Jews, and what is happening today in the Holy Land.

Jeremiah 24:2

"One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad."  (KJV)

Two baskets of figs. One good and one rotten.

Jeremiah 24:7

"And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart."  (KJV)

YHWH will do good to the good figs.

Jeremiah 24:10

"10 And I will send the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, among them, till they be consumed from off the land that I gave unto them and to their fathers."  (KJV)

YHWH will do bad things to the evil figs.

Jeremiah 25:29

"29 For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts."  (KJV)

YHWH is going to punish all the earth.

Jeremiah 25:33

"33 And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground."  (KJV)

The destruction will be so great, the dead will just be left laying on the ground.

"And it came to pass the same year, in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the fourth year, and in the fifth month, that Hananiah the son of Azur the prophet, which was of Gibeon, spake unto me in the house of the LORD, in the presence of the priests and of all the people, saying,"  (KJV)

In the 5th moon of the 4th year of the reign of Tsidqiyah

Jeremiah 28:2

"Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying, I have broken the yoke of the king of Babylon."  (KJV)

This was false prophecy

Jeremiah 28:3

"Within two full years will I bring again into this place all the vessels of the LORD's house, that Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon took away from this place, and carried them to Babylon:"  (KJV)

This was false prophecy

Jeremiah 28:4

"And I will bring again to this place Jeconiah the son of Jehoiakim king of Judah, with all the captives of Judah, that went into Babylon, saith the LORD: for I will break the yoke of the king of Babylon."  (KJV)

This was false prophecy

Jeremiah 28:9

"The prophet which prophesieth of peace, when the word of the prophet shall come to pass, then shall the prophet be known, that the LORD hath truly sent him."  (KJV)

Jeremiah called his bluff and said that if peace comes to pass, they will know that Hananyah prophecied the truth.

Jeremiah 28:11

"11 And Hananiah spake in the presence of all the people, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Even so will I break the yoke of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way."  (KJV)

This was false prophecy

Jeremiah 28:14

"14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; I have put a yoke of iron upon the neck of all these nations, that they may serve Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon; and they shall serve him: and I have given him the beasts of the field also.chadnezzar king of Babylon from the neck of all nations within the space of two full years. And the prophet Jeremiah went his way."  (KJV)

YAHUA reiterates what he said in Jeremiah 27:2-8

Jeremiah 28:17

"17 So Hananiah the prophet died the same year in the seventh month."  (KJV)

The false prophet, Hananyah, died 2 moons later.
This was proof that Hananyah was lying and that Yirmeyahu was telling the truth.

Jeremiah 30

The return of Israel AND Judah to the Holy Land.

Jeremiah 30:3

"For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it."  (KJV)

This verse speaks of Israel AND Judah.

Jeremiah 30:3

YHWH will regather HIS people Israel and Judah, they will return to the land and shall possess it.

Jeremiah 30:7

"Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it."  (KJV)

This event will take place during the time of Jacob's trouble.

2142  - Jacob’s Trouble is for both houses. But unlike the world, Jacob will be spared from it through divine protection,

Jeremiah 30:9

They will serve YHWH and David who HE will raise up to them.

Jeremiah 30:10

YHWH tells Jacob and Israel not to be afraid as HE will save them from afar.

Since modern Jews are afraid of the Arabs, this verse seems to indicate that the modern Jews are NOT the people being referred to in this verse.

Jeremiah 30:11

YHWH will correct HIS people after HE brings them back to the Holy Land.

Jeremiah 30:22

"And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God."  (KJV)

Jeremiah 31:5

Thou shalt yet plant vines upon the mountains of Samaria: the planters shall plant, and shall eat them as common things.  (KJV)

For there shall be a day, that the watchmen upon the mount Ephraim shall cry, Arise ye, and let us go up to Zion unto the LORD our God.  (KJV)

Natsarum on Mount Ephrayim

Jeremiah 31:7

For thus saith the LORD; Sing with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations: publish ye, praise ye, and say, O LORD, save thy people, the remnant of Israel.  (KJV)

The operative word here being, REMNANT of Israel, not NATION of Israel.

Jeremiah 31:8

Behold, I will bring them from the north country, and gather them from the coasts of the earth, and with them the blind and the lame, the woman with child and her that travaileth with child together: a great company shall return thither.  (KJV)

Is this a reference to the 2nd Exodus?

Jeremiah 31:9

They shall come with weeping, and with supplications will I lead them: I will cause them to walk by the rivers of waters in a straight way, wherein they shall not stumble: for I am a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my firstborn.  (KJV)

Ephraim/Ephrayim

Jeremiah 31:10

"Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd doth his flock."  (KJV)

Unless people want to claim that the Assyrians and Babylonians are going to be bringing the people back to the land, this verse seems to be referring to YHWH as the one doing the gathering.

Jeremiah 31:16

16 Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears: for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD; and they shall come again from the land of the enemy.  (KJV)

Is this a reference to the 2nd Exodus?

Jeremiah 31:18

18 I have surely heard Ephraim bemoaning himself thus; Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God.  (KJV)

Ephraim/Ephrayim

Jeremiah 31:22

22 How long wilt thou go about, O thou backsliding daughter? for the LORD hath created a new thing in the earth, A woman shall compass a man.  (KJV)

What did he mean that a woman shall compass a man?

Jeremiah 31:31-34

31 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:  (KJV)

The introduction of the New Covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah.

A new covenant.  The Beginning of the Brit Hadasha.

These verses are restated almost word for word in Hebrews 8:8

"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 the LORD:"  (KJV)

YHWH's people broke the original covenant.

Is he referring to Pesach/Passover in this verse?

"33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. "  (KJV)

YHWH will write his new covenant in our hearts.

"34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. "  (KJV)

Jeremiah 31:35-37

Israel will be a nation before YHWH forever.

Jeremiah 31:35

"35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:"  (KJV).

What are the ordinances of the moon?

Jeremiah 31:36

"36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever."  (KJV).

Sounds pretty important to me.

Jeremiah 31:37

"37 Thus saith the LORD; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the LORD."  (KJV).

Interesting

Jeremiah 32:35

"35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin."  (KJV)

Ba'al & Molek 'keys'.

Jeremiah 33:7

"And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first."  (KJV)

The two (2) houses of Israel.

Jeremiah 33:8

"And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me."  (KJV)

Judah/Yahudah and Israel/Yisr'ĕl have sinned against YHWH

Jeremiah 33:17

"17 For thus saith the LORD; David shall never want a man to sit upon the throne of the house of Israel; "  (KJV)

This points to the Messiah as it will be forever.

Jeremiah 34

The Jews break covenant with YHWH over their slaves.

The exile of the house of Judah/Yahudah is prophesied.

Jeremiah 34:8

"This is the word that came unto Jeremiah from the LORD, after that the king Zedekiah had made a covenant with all the people which were at Jerusalem, to proclaim liberty unto them;"  (KJV)

Covenant

Jeremiah 34:9

"That every man should let his manservant, and every man his maidservant, being an Hebrew or an Hebrewess, go free; that none should serve himself of them, to wit, of a Jew his brother."  (KJV)

Taken in context with the previous verse, (Jeremiah 34:8) which states ALL the people which were at Jerusalem, the use of the word 'Jew' here should mean Judeans.  (It cannot mean the tribe of Judah and doesn't seem to be exclusive to the house of Judah either.)

Jeremiah 34:10

"10 Now when all the princes, and all the people, which had entered into the covenant, heard that every one should let his manservant, and every one his maidservant, go free, that none should serve themselves of them any more, then they obeyed, and let them go."  (KJV)

The people originally obeyed the Covenant

Jeremiah 34:11

"11 But afterward they turned, and caused the servants and the handmaids, whom they had let go free, to return, and brought them into subjection for servants and for handmaids."  (KJV)

They broke their covenant.

Jeremiah 34:13

"13 Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondmen, saying,"  (KJV)

Covenant

Jeremiah 34:14

"14 At the end of seven years let ye go every man his brother an Hebrew, which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free from thee: but your fathers hearkened not unto me, neither inclined their ear."  (KJV)

Every seven (7) years we are to release our slaves.

Jeremiah 34:15

"15 And ye were now turned, and had done right in my sight, in proclaiming liberty every man to his neighbour; and ye had made a covenant before me in the house which is called by my name:"  (KJV)

The people had made a Covenant with YHWH in the house which is called by my name.

Does this mean the temple or Jerusalem?

Jeremiah 34:16

"16 But ye turned and polluted my name, and caused every man his servant, and every man his handmaid, whom he had set at liberty at their pleasure, to return, and brought them into subjection, to be unto you for servants and for handmaids."  (KJV)

They broke their covenant with YHWH.  Not a smart move.

Jeremiah 34:17

"17 Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ye have not hearkened unto me, in proclaiming liberty, every one to his brother, and every man to his neighbour: behold, I proclaim a liberty for you, saith the LORD, to the sword, to the pestilence, and to the famine; and I will make you to be removed into all the kingdoms of the earth."  (KJV)

Now comes the punishment phase for breaking the covenant.

Jeremiah 34:18

"18 And I will give the men that have transgressed my covenant, which have not performed the words of the covenant which they had made before me, when they cut the calf in twain, and passed between the parts thereof,"  (KJV)

Part of the ritual of making a Covenant is to split a sacrificial animal in half and then both parties in the covenant walk between the pieces.

Jeremiah 35

The story of Rechab/Rĕkab and the Rechabites/Rĕkabites.  He instructed his children not to drink wine, nor live in the city, nor sow seed, nor plant a vineyard but to live in tents all their days and his children obeyed.

Jeremiah 37:18

"18 Moreover Jeremiah said unto king Zedekiah, What have I offended against thee, or against thy servants, or against this people, that ye have put me in prison?"  (KJV)

They always want to silence the messenger.

Jeremiah 37:19

"19 Where are now your prophets which prophesied unto you, saying, The king of Babylon shall not come against you, nor against this land?"  (KJV)

Sounds like today. No one held the news agency accountable for saying there was no economic depression, even when they admitted that there was.

Jeremiah 39:10

"10 But Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard left of the poor of the people, which had nothing, in the land of Judah, and gave them vineyards and fields at the same time."  (KJV)

This story is retold in 2 Kings 25:12 and Jeremiah 52

Were these people ever accounted for in Scripture?  They were a remnant of true Hebrews left in the land after the Babylonian invasion.

Jeremiah 40:14

14 And said unto him, Dost thou certainly know that Baalis the king of the Ammonites hath sent Ishmael the son of Nethaniah to slay thee? But Gedaliah the son of Ahikam believed them not.  (KJV)

Johanan/Yohanan tried to warn Gedaliah/Dedalyahu.

Jeremiah 41:2-3

Yishma'ĕl son of Nethanyah and then ten men who were with him, arose and smote Gedalyahu son of Ahiqam, son of Shapan, with the sword and killed him whom the sovereign of Babel had made governor over the land.  (Besorah)

Then spake Azariah the son of Hoshaiah, and Johanan the son of Kareah, and all the proud men, saying unto Jeremiah, Thou speakest falsely: the LORD our God hath not sent thee to say, Go not into Egypt to sojourn there:  (KJV)

They didn't believe Jeremiah the prophet.

The people plan to do whatever they want.

Jeremiah 44:18

"18 But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine."  (KJV)

"19 And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?"  (KJV)

Jeremiah 48:27

"27 For was not Israel a derision unto thee? was he found among thieves? for since thou spakest of him, thou skippedst for joy."  (KJV)

Why does he refer to Israel/Yisra'ĕl as 'him'?

Jeremiah 49

This chapter details the fate of the Ammonites, Edom/Edom, Damascus/Dammeseq, Kedar/Qĕdar, the kingdoms of Hazor/Hatsor and Ĕlam/Eylam.

Verses 6-22 detail the fate of Edom.  It sounds like Edom will be completely destroyed like Sodom and Gemorrah.

Jeremiah 50:2

 For, lo, I will raise and cause to come up against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the north country: and they shall set themselves in array against her; from thence she shall be taken: their arrows shall be as of a mighty expert man; none shall return in vain.  (KJV)

"In those days, and in that time, 2305says YHWH, the iniquity of Yisrael shall be sought for, and there shall be none; and the sins of Yahudah, and they shall not be found: for I will pardon those whom I leave as a remnant. 2305"  (Restoration Scriptures)

2305 - Last days.

2305 - The saved, forgiven, and pardoned remnant of both houses shall all return.

42 The sea is come up upon Babylon: she is covered with the multitude of the waves thereof."  (KJV)

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF JEREMIAH:

The Book of Jeremiah was written between 630 and 580 B.C.

The Book of Jeremiah records the final prophecies to Judah, warning of oncoming destruction if the nation does not repent.  Jeremiah calls out for the nation to turn back to God.  At the same time, Jeremiah recognizes the inevitability of Judahs destruction due to its unrepentant idolatry and immorality.

The dates of the events in the book of Jeremiah is from the Judean king Josiah's 13th year (or 627BC) in Jeremiah 1:2 to beyond the fall of Jerusalem ( or 586BC) in Jeremiah 39, 40, and 52.  As Jewish tradition is that Jeremiah was taken captive by the Babylonians when they invaded Egypt (he went to Egypt - see Jer 43, 44) in 568/67 BC, it could not have been actually written much later than that.

Parts of the Book of Jeremiah have also been found among the Dead Sea Scrolls in cave 4 in Qumran.

4th moon, 5th day of the 30th year (since what?).

Verse one indicates that this was written during the Babylonian captivity.

Ezekiel 1:5

 "Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man."  (KJV)

4 living creatures?

'the likeness of a man'? Not 'men'?

4 faces?

4 wings?

Ezekiel 1:7

 "And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass."  (KJV)

Why the attention to their feet?

4 sides?

the hands of a man under their wings?

Ezekiel 1:10

Colorless beryl is called goshenite

pink beryl is morganite

clear bright yellow beryl is "golden beryl"

yellow-green beryl is heliodor

red beryl is bixbite or "red emerald" or "scarlet emerald"

Red beryl is extremely rare

unnamed shades such as honey yellow are also known.

Ezekiel 3:9

 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.  (KJV)

They be a rebellious house.

Ezekiel 3:17-21

This is very similar to what is said in Ezekiel 18:20-32 and Ezekiel 33:8-20.

 20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured. Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,  (KJV)

Child sacrifice.

Ezekiel 16:21

 21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?  (KJV)

Is this referring to sacrifices to Molek?

Ezekiel 16:31-34

YHWH says that Jerusalem is worse than a whore as she doesn't even charge.  HE says that she pays her lovers to come to her.

Ezekiel 16:31

 31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an harlot, in that thou scornest hire;  (KJV)

Pretty harsh words here.  YHWH is calling them worse than a whore because they gave themselves away for free and didn't even charge for their whoring.

YHWH compares Jerusalem to Sodom/Sedom and Samaria/Shomeron.

Ezekiel 16:48

YHWH says that when HE establishes HIS covenant with the children of Israel, they will be ashamed.

Ezekiel 16:60

 60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.  (KJV)

An everlasting covenant?  Is this verse referring to the B'rit Chadasha or another covenant?

Ezekiel 16:61

 61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.  (KJV)

When the house of Judah reunites with the house of Israel, the people will be ashamed of what they had done previously.

What is their covenant?  What covenant is YHWH referring to in this verse?

Ezekiel 16:62

 62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD:  (KJV)

covenant

Ezekiel 16:63

 63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.  (KJV)

When the establishes HIS new covenant with all the children of Israel, the people will be ashamed of what they had done previously.

"never open thy mouth any more because of thy shame"; the people will be unable to speak because of their shame.

Ezekiel 17

YHWH speaks a riddle unto the house of Israel.

The word covenant is used six (6) times.

The Babylonian king comes to Jerusalem and exiles the Hebrew kingdom.

Ezekiel 17:5

"He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree."  (KJV)

Symbology? water, willow tree

Ezekiel 17:12

"12 Say now to the rebellious house, Know ye not what these things mean? tell them, Behold, the king of Babylon is come to Jerusalem, and hath taken the king thereof, and the princes thereof, and led them with him to Babylon;"  (KJV)

The Babylonian king coming to Jerusalem and taking the Hebrew kingdom to exile.

Ezekiel 18

This chapter deals with sin and righteousness.

YHWH says that if a child turns from the sins of his father and walks in HIS instructions, that child will NOT inherit the sins of the father.

YHWH says that HE takes NO pleasure in the death of the wicked.

Ezekiel 18:4

'Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.'  (KJV)

All souls belong to YHWH.  If a soul sins, that soul dies.

Ezekiel 18:16

"16 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge, neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and hath covered the naked with a garment,"  (KJV)

What is 'the pledge'?

Ezekiel 20:1-3

 And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to enquire of the LORD, and sat before me.  (KJV)

 Then came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,  (KJV)

 Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to enquire of me? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be enquired of by you.  (KJV)

In The 7th year, the 5th moon, the 10th day, certain elders of Israel came to enquire of YHWH.

YHWH said HE would not be inquired of by them.

Which seventh (7th) year?

The 7th Year, the 5th Moon, the 10th Day

Ezekiel 20:4

 Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"Judge them, son of man, judge them! Make known to them the abominations of their fathers."  (The ISR Scriptures)

Interesting to note that while in the KJV, YHWH is asking a question, in other translations, YHWH is making a declarative statement.

Judging Keys

Ezekiel 20:4-8

 Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to know the abominations of their fathers:  (KJV)

 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God;  (KJV)

 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:  (KJV)

 Then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.  (KJV)

 But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.  (KJV)

YHWH recalls how HE told them that HE was Elohim and that HE was going to bring them to a land flowing with milk and honey and how HE told them to throw away their idols but that they rebelled against HIM.

YHWH explains that HE was going to take out HIS wrath against them right there but for the sake of HIS name HE decided not to have HIS name profaned in from ot the gentiles so HE decided to take them out of the land of Egypt first.

Ezekiel 20:12-13

12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. "  (KJV)

13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them."  (KJV)

Sabbath

Ezekiel 20:15

"15 Yet also I lifted up my hand unto them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands;"  (KJV)

YHWH recounts how HE would not bring the people into the land he promised since they disobeyed him.

Ezekiel 20:16

16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes, but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols."  (KJV)

Sabbath

Ezekiel 20:19

19 I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them;"  (KJV)

YHWH's statutes and judgments.

Ezekiel 20:20-21

20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God."  (KJV)

21 Notwithstanding the children rebelled against me: they walked not in my statutes, neither kept my judgments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; they polluted my sabbaths: then I said, I would pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the wilderness."  (KJV)

The children did not walk in his statutes, nor did they keep HIS judgements, and they polluted HIS Sabbaths.

Ezekiel 20:24

24 Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their fathers' idols."  (KJV)

YHWH's judgments, statutes, and Sabbaths

Ezekiel 20:26

"26 And I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused to pass through the fire all that openeth the womb, that I might make them desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD."  (KJV)

They burned their first born.

Ezekiel 20:31

31 For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this day: and shall I be enquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will not be enquired of by you."  (KJV)

They burned their sons.

Ezekiel 20:37

37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant:"  (KJV)

They will be made to obey.  Covenant

Ezekiel 20:40

40 For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things."  (KJV)

The sacrificial/offering system will be in place.

Ezekiel 22

This entire chapter seems to be describing modern day Israel and Christianity in general. YHWH clearly addresses his dislike for dishonest gain and oppressive regimes.

Interesting to note how Ezekiel had no problem speaking out against the priests, prophets, and people who were doing evil. Did that make him anti-Semitic?

Ezekiel 22:26

"26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them."  (KJV)

Ezekiel 22:28

"28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when the LORD hath not spoken."  (KJV)

Ezekiel 22:29-30

"29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the stranger wrongfully."  (KJV)

"30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none."  (KJV)

Ezekiel 23:37

"37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to devour them."  (KJV)

Child sacrifice

Ezekiel 23:38

"38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths."  (KJV)

Profaned sabbaths.

Ezekiel 23:39

"39 For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house."  (KJV)

Child sacrifice

Ezekiel 24:24

"24 Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign: according to all that he hath done shall ye do: and when this cometh, ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD."  (KJV)

A sign to us.

Ezekiel 24:27

"27 In that day shall thy mouth be opened to him which is escaped, and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb: and thou shalt be a sign unto them; and they shall know that I am the LORD."  (KJV)

A sign to us.

Ezekiel 26:3

"Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up."  (KJV)

This verse seems to be saying that people are not to take advantage of the children of Israel or the promised land even if YHWH is punishing HIs people.

Ezekiel 26:19

"19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;"  (KJV)

Is this a description of an earthquake and tidal wave which destroys Tyrus/Tyre/Tsor?

Ezekiel 26:20

"20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I shall set glory in the land of the living;"  (KJV)

Is this hell or is it the place where the fallen angels are bound in chains awaiting judgement day?  2 Peter 2:4

Ezekiel 27:27

"27 Thy riches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, and in all thy company which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin."  (KJV)

Sounds like an earthquake with a tidal wave.

Ezekiel 32

I need to find out what year these events took place or if they are to take place in the future.  Is this chapter referring to the End of Days?

The countries that will fall are Asshur, Elam, Egypt, Meshech, Tubal, Edom, Zidonians and the Pharoah.

Ezekiel 32:7

"And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light."  (KJV)

Ezekiel 32:9

"I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not known."  (KJV)

This verse could be indicating future times.

Ezekiel 32:19

Reference is made to the uncircumcised.  Does this mean non-covenant?

Ezekiel 32:21

Reference is made to the uncircumcised.  Does this mean non-covenant?

Ezekiel 32:24-30

Reference is made to the uncircumcised.  Does this mean non-covenant?

Ezekiel 32:32

Reference is made to the uncircumcised.  Does this mean non-covenant?

Ezekiel 33

These verses are very similar to Ezekiel 3:17-21.

If we do NOT warn the wicked, even though they perish, they're blood will be on our hands.

Ezekiel 34

YHWH will be against the teachers in the last days.

According to the words in this chapter:

  1. YHWH HIMSELF will bring HIS people back to the land,
  2. YHWH HIMSELF will judge between the fat cattle and the lean cattle,
  3. YHWH HIMSELF will set up one shephard over them,
  4. they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall make them afraid,
  5. YHWH will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.

Ezekiel 34:2

"Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?"  (KJV)

"'Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?'"

Ezekiel 34:4

"The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them."  (KJV)

You have not strengthened the weak, nor have you healed the sick, nor bound up the broken, nor sought what was lost; but you have ruled them with might and harshness.

Ezekiel 34:9

"Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;"  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"therefore, O shepherds, hear the word of YHWH!"  (The ISR Scriptures)

Ezekiel 34:10

"10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"10 'Thus said the Master YHWH, "See, I am against the shepherds, and shall require My flock at their hand, and shall make them cease feeding the sheep, and the shepherds shall feed themselves no more. And I shall deliver My flock from their mouths, and they shall no longer be food for them.""  (The ISR Scriptures)

Ezekiel 34:11

"11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

"11 'For thus said the Master YHWH, "See, I Myself shall search for My sheep and seek them out."  (The ISR Scriptures)

Ezekiel 34:23

"23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd."  (KJV)

I need to find out if this is a reference to the Messiah.

Ezekiel 34:25

"25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods."  (KJV)

Is this End of Days?

Ezekiel 36

The return of the people to the land is detailed.

Ezekiel 36:7

 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.  (KJV)

It does not say when this is going to happen.

Ezekiel 36:8

 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to come.  (KJV)

Who are 'they at hand to come'?

Ezekiel 36:10

This verse speaks of ALL the house of Israel (not just the Jews).

Ezekiel 36:12

 12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel; and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.  (KJV)

Doesn't this mean that the 10 northern tribes from the House of Israel will return to possess the land?
Currently, no one but DNA Jews can own land in Israel.

Ezekiel 36:14

 14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.  (KJV)

Doesn't this mean peace and not war?

Ezekiel 36:17-19

YHWH dispersed the people through the countries because of what they did wrong.  These verses explain what the house of Israel had done wrong and why they were punished with exile from the land.

Ezekiel 36:18

 18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:  (KJV)

This is why the House of Israel was driven from the land.

Ezekiel 36:23-28

"27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them."  (KJV)

  • 23 - The heathen will know who YHWH is when HE is santified before the eyes of HIS people.
  • 24 - YHWH will take HIS people from among the heathen and gather them out of all countries and bring them into their own land.
  • 25 - YHWH's people will be cleansed of all their filthiness and idols.
  • 27 - YHWH will cause HIS people to walk in HIS statutes and judgements.

Ezekiel 36:27 - HE puts his spirit within us in order to cause us to obey.

Ezekiel 36:24

 24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.  (KJV)

This says that YHWH will gather us our of all our countries and bring us into our own land.

Ezekiel 36:28

 28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.  (KJV)

This says that the House of Israel will return.

Ezekiel 36:31

 31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.  (KJV)

According to this verse, after YHWH returns HIS people to the land, the children of Israel will hate themselves for what they have done in the past.

I certainly don't see this happening today.  The Israeli Government is filled with pride.

Ezekiel 36:33

 33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.  (KJV)

Have the people been cleansed of all their iniquities?

Ezekiel 36:35

 35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.  (KJV)

Is this why the Israeli government is building a wall?

Ezekiel 37:1

"The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,"  (KJV)

Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl has a vision in a valley of bones.

Ezekiel 37:2-10

""  (KJV)

YHWH brings the bones in the valley to life.

Ezekiel 37:11-14

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that HE will open the graves of HIS people, put HIS spirit in them and place them in their own land.

"11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts."  (KJV)

"12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel."  (KJV)

"13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,"  (KJV)

"14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD."  (KJV)

This seems to be a pretty clear marker of the events that will transpire when then the Messiah returns.

After YHWH raised people from their graves, HE will restore them to the land.

Ezekiel 37:16-22

""  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that HE will take two sticks representing the two houses of Israel and join them.

Ezekiel 37:16

"16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:"  (KJV)

YHWH says that the children of Israel will be Judah's companions and the house of Israel will be Ephraim's companions.

Ezekiel 37:19

"19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand."  (KJV)

YHWH says that the stick of Joseph is in Ephriam's hand but doesn't say in whose hand the stick of Judah exists.

"Possesion of the "stick" indicates Ephraim's headship over the tribe of Joseph, because the Father had instructed Moses, "Speak to the sons of Israel, and get from them a rod for each father's household: twelve rods...You shall writer each name on his rod...one rod for the head of each of their father's households (Numbers 17:2-3).  The stick, or rod, serves as the symbol of family leadership 33  and Ephraim holds Joseph's rod.

33  - Stick/Rod: matteh, means staff or rod. TWOT # 1352.

Redeemed Israel Reunited and Restored by Batya Ruth Wootten 2006, p 23c

Ezekiel 37:21

"21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:"  (KJV)

This verse seems to indicate that YHWH will take the children of the 10 lost tribes which were dispersed by the Assyrians and bring them back to the land of Israel/Yisr'ĕl.

Ezekiel 37:22

"22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all."  (KJV)

According to this verse, when the children of Israel return to the land, they will have one king and will no longer be divided.  This does not seem to be what has happened with the Zionist movement.

Ezekiel 37:23-25

""  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that HE will cleanse the people and that David will be their king.

Ezekiel 37:25

"25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever."  (KJV)

These verses seem to indicate that after YHWH/YAHUSHUA returns as King and the children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl have been cleansed of their sin, then they will dwell in the land.

Ezekiel 37:26

"26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore."  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that HE will make an everlasting covenant of peace with them.

This is a key indicator of when this prophecy has come true. When YHWH's santuary is in the midst of the children of Israel/Yisr'ĕl for evermore.

Ezekiel 37:27

"27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people."  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that HIS tabernacle will be with them.

Ezekiel 37:28

"28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore."  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl that the heathen shall know that HE has sanctified Israel when his sanctuary is in their midst forever more.

Ezekiel 38

I am not sure if this chapter is referring to pre-millenial reign of Messiah or post.  Is this the battle of Armageddon or the battle of Gog & Magog?

Ezekiel 38:2

The land of Magog is mentioned.

Ezekiel 38:4

"And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:"  (KJV)

What is meant by the phrase "hooks in their jaws"?

Ezekiel 38:11

And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,  (KJV)

The same Hebrew word that is translated here as safely (hetach H), is translated as carelessly in Ezekiel 39:6.

This verse could be referring to a defenseless land or to a land where people have neglected their defenses.

Ezekiel 38:17

"17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days many years that I would bring thee against them?"  (KJV)

YHWH is saying that these events have been spoken of before by the prophets of Israel who existed before Ezekiel.

Ezekiel 39

Gog and Magog are mentioned.

This chapter could be detailing the destruction of the Zionists.

Ezekiel 39:2

And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee upon the mountains of Israel:  (KJV)

One sixth 1/6th of the ? of Gog will be come from the North and be brought to the mountains of Israel/Yisr'ĕl

Ezekiel 39:3

And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.  (KJV)

YHWH will disarm the ? of Gog.

Will YHWH do this or cause it to be done by someone/something else?

Ezekiel 39:4

Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.  (KJV)

YHWH will destroy all the people of Gog.

Ezekiel 39:6

"And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD."  (KJV)

This verse could be referring to a defenseless land or to a land where people have neglected their defenses.

YHWH will send a fire on Magog and them that dwell carelessly in the isles.

The same Hebrew word that is translated here as carelessly (hetach H), is translated as safely in Ezekiel 38:11.

Who are the people that dwell carelessly in the isles?

Ezekiel 39:7

"So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel."  (KJV)

Translation Difference

""And I shall make My set-apart Name known in the midst of My people Yisra’ĕl, and not let My set-apart Name be profaned any more.  And the gentiles shall know thatI am YHWH, the Set-apart One in Yisra’ĕl." (The ISR Scriptures)

"So will I make My kadosh Name known in the midst of My people Yisrael; and I will not let them defile My kadosh Name any more: and the gentiles shall know that I am YHWH, the Kadosh-One in Yisrael. 2629  (The ISR Scriptures)

2629   The ultimate purpose of the battle of Gog and Magog is to preserve Yisrael in kingdom glory, reestablish YHWH’s true Name among his people Yisrael, and introduce it to the nations, to some even for the very first time.

YHWH says he is the Holy One IN Israel/Yisr'ĕl not the Holy one OF Israel/Yisr'ĕl.

Ezekiel 39:8

"Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the day whereof I have spoken."  (KJV)

Is this the day of the LORD?

Ezekiel 39:9

"And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire seven years:"  (KJV)

In this verse YHWH says the people that dwell in the cities Israel/Yisr'ĕl will set fire to the weapons of war.

HE also states that this will last for seven (7) years.

Ezekiel 39:11

"11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog."  (KJV)

The valley of Hamongog is named.

Is YAH saying that the dead bodies will stink?

Ezekiel 39:12

"12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that they may cleanse the land."  (KJV)

It will take seven (7) months to bury the dead and cleanse the land.
It will take the house of Israel/Yisr'ĕl seven (7) months to bury all the bodies.

Ezekiel 39:13

"13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD."  (KJV)

Will the people of the land make this a holiday or holy day?

Ezekiel 39:14

"14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search."  (KJV)

There will be a cleansing.

Ezekiel 39:15

"15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried it in the valley of Hamongog."  (KJV)

Passengers in the land will mark the bones to be buried in Hamongog.

Ezekiel 39:17

"17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood."  (KJV)

The birds of the air will feast on the dead bodies.

Ezekiel 39:20

"20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD."  (KJV)

Will YHWH sacrifice all men of war?

Ezekiel 39:22

"22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from that day and forward."  (KJV)

The house of Israel will know that YHWH is their Elohim from that day forward.
Obviously the house Israel/Yisr'ĕl of didn't know that YHWH was the lord their Elohim.

Ezekiel 39:23

"23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell they all by the sword."  (KJV)

Did YHWH destroy all the existing house of Israel/Yisr'ĕl like he did during the forty (40) years in the desert?

Ezekiel 39:25

"25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be jealous for my holy name;"  (KJV)

What is the captivity of Jacob/Ya'aqob?

Ezekiel 39:26

"26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in their land, and none made them afraid."  (KJV)

Is YHWH talking about the United States or the house of Judah/Yahudah in this verse?

Ezekiel 39:27

"27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of many nations;"  (KJV)

YHWH is talking about the house of Israel/Yisr'ĕl in this passage and not the house of Judah/Yahudah.

Ezekiel 39:29

"29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD."  (KJV)

YHWH will pour out HIS spirit on the house of Israel/Yisr'ĕl.

Ezekiel 40-48

The beginning of a vision by Ezekiel.

This chapter seems to be referring to a temple.  Since the priests are there, does this refer to Jerusalem?

The time of the Third Temple.

Ezekiel 40:1

"In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me thither."  (KJV)

01/10/11 Fourteen (14) years before.
01/10/25
01/10/39 Fourteen (14) years later.

Ezekiel 43:11

"And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances thereof, and do them."  (KJV)

Ezekiel 44:7

"In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations."  (KJV)

"And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean."  (KJV)

""And they are to teach My people the difference between the set-apart and the profane, and make them know what is unclean and clean."  (The ISR Scriptures)

"And they shall teach My people the difference between the kadosh and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean. 2657 "  (The Restoration Scriptures)

2657  - If you love Yahshua, and are willing to learn that, you will surely walk as Yisrael.

Holy/qadash - (H6942) - kaw-dash' a primitive root; to be (causatively, make, pronounce or observe as) clean (ceremonially or morally):--appoint, bid, consecrate, dedicate, defile, hallow, (be, keep) holy(-er, place), keep, prepare, proclaim, purify, sanctify(-ied one, self), X wholly.

Profane/ - (H2455) - from 'chalal' (2490); properly, exposed; hence, profane:--common, profane (place), unholy.; (2490) - a primitive root (compare 'chalah' (2470)); properly, to bore, i.e. (by implication) to wound, to dissolve; figuratively, to profane (a person, place or thing), to break (one's word), to begin (as if by an "opening wedge"); denom.

"And in a dispute they shall stand in mishpat; and they shall judge according to My mishpatim: and they shall keep My Torot and My mishpatim in all My moadim; and they shall set-apart My Shabbats."  (The Restoration Scriptures)

mishpat - (judgment)

mishpatim - (judgments); (H) Judgments, Or Right-Rulings That Make Perfect Sense; Judgments (Hebrew mishpatim) are the opposite of a Statute (chok), a law given for a specified reason. It has a logic behind it that can be ascertained and thus used for further application of Torah. An example of judgments are the Sabbath laws, which were given because "God created the world in six days, but on the seventh day He rested".

mo'adim - (fixed times/seasons/festivals)

Ezekiel 45:22

 22 "And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering."  (KJV)

This cannot be Yeshua, because Yeshua was without sin, however, I need to learn more about the sin offering and the animal being offered as this might change the meaning of the offering.  Further, Ezekiel goes on to tell us that this prince will have sons. (Ezekiel 46:16)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl how the land is to be divided.

Ezekiel 47:12

"12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine."  (KJV)

12 'And by the stream upon the banks of it, on this side and on that side, shall grow all eytzim for food, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit of it be consumed: it shall bring out new fruit according to its months, because the mayim came out of the Kadosh-Place: and its fruit shall be for food, and its leaves for medicine.  (The Restoration Scriptures)

Ezekiel 47:13

 13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have two portions.  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl there is to be a double portion for the tribe of Joseph/Yosĕph.  I think this is for Ephraim/Ephrayim and one for Manasseh/Menashsheh.  Since the tribe of Levi/Lĕwi doesn't get a land inheritance, this would add up to twelve (12) portions.

Ezekiel 47:22

"22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you among the tribes of Israel."  (KJV)

YHWH tells Ezekiel/Yehezqĕl strangers that sojourn there and bear children are entitled to a land inheritance.

Strangers can claim a portion of the land as their inheritance also.

The Book of Daniel/Dani'ĕl

Daniel 2:1-30

Nebuchadenezzear had a dream which Daniel interpreted.

Daniel 2:31-33

The king had seen a great image whose head was made of gold, his breast and arms of silver, his belly and thighs of brass, his legs of iron and his feet of iron and clay.

Head - gold - Babylon

Breast & Arms - silver - Media Persia

Belly & Thighs - brass - Greece

Legs - iron - Rome

Rome overcame Greece by 167 B.C.

Bertrand Comparet feels that the two legs are a reference to the fact that the Empire was eventually divided into two, with the Byzantine Empire breaking off from the Roman Empire at about 283 A.D.

Feet - iron & clay - ?

Daniel 2:31-45

"Daniel interpreted the dream for King Nebuchadnezzar, telling him that his Babylonian empire would head a succession of a succession of “Babylonian” empires. All of these empires would be distinct from each other in the material realm, but they would all be spiritually “Babylonian,” because they all followed the same spiritual pattern of subjugating the things of Elohim to the things of the material world."

"First in the succession was Babylon, symbolized by the head of fine gold. Next was Media-Persia, symbolized by the chest and arms of silver. Third was Alexander the Great’s Macedonian (Greek) empire, symbolized by the belly and thighs of bronze. Fourth was Rome, which was symbolized by the legs of iron. Finally there was Christianity and Islam, which was symbolized by the feet of both iron and clay."

What are the two parts to the Roman Empire?

I don't know if I agree with the statement that the feet are Christianity and Islam.  Judaism is a major player in the Beast system so I wonder how it fits into the dream.

Daniel 2:38

Daniel tells the king that he is the head of gold.  The Babylonian kingdom is the head of gold.

Daniel 2:44

And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Daniel 7:6

Daniel's third (3rd) beast.

Greece is the civilizaton of brass.  Daniel 2:39

Greece is the third kingdom.

Greece is the leopard.  Daniel 7:6.  Bertrand Comparet finds this symbol most appropriate for the swiftness with which Alexander's armies conquered the known world.

The leopard had four (4) heads.  Daniel 7:6.  Upon Alexander's death, his empire was divided among four generals.

These four generals were:

Ptolemy of Egypt,

Lysimachus of old Greece,

Antigonus in Asia Minor,

Eumeneus of Cappadocia and Paphlagonia.

Daniel 7:7

"...and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it;..."

Rome began as a republic and not as a kingdom.

Daniel 8:3-4

 Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last.  (KJV)

 I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.  (KJV)

Daniel sees a vision of a ram and an angel tells Daniel that the ram with two horns are kings of Media and Persia.  (Daniel 8:20)

Daniel sees a vision of a ram pushing North, East, and South.  Why not West?  Is there a natural border there?  Is this an indication that he is in the Holy Land?

Daniel 8:6-7

 And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.  (KJV)

 And I saw him come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.  (KJV)

Daniel sees a vision of a ram and an angel tells Daniel that the ram with two hords are the kings of Media and Persia.  (Daniel 8:20)

Daniel 8:14

 14 And he said unto me, Unto two thousand and three hundred days; then shall the sanctuary be cleansed.  (KJV)

2,300 days / 30 = 76.7 months = 6.4 years

Daniel 8:20

 20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.  (KJV)

An angel tells Daniel that the ram with two hords are the kings of Media and Persia.

Daniel 8:22

This verse relates to Daniel 7:6.  Upon Alexander's death, his empire was divided among four generals.

These four generals were:

Ptolemy of Egypt,

Lysimachus of old Greece,

Antigonus in Asia Minor,

Eumeneus of Cappadocia and Paphlagonia.

Daniel 9:2

 "In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the LORD came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem."  (KJV)

What does Daniel mean by saying he "understood by books the number of years"? What exactly did he understand by books? The number of years of what?

Daniel 9:4

 "And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments;"  (KJV)

Covenant!

Daniel 9:7

 "O LORD, righteousness belongeth unto thee, but unto us confusion of faces, as at this day; to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and unto all Israel, that are near, and that are far off, through all the countries whither thou hast driven them, because of their trespass that they have trespassed against thee. "  (KJV)

This appears to be referencing all 12 tribes.

Daniel 9:8

 O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee. "  (KJV)

ALL men fall short. This counters the belief that institutions of men (governments) deserve our honor and respect.

Daniel 9:11

 11 "Yea, all Israel have transgressed thy law, even by departing, that they might not obey thy voice; therefore the curse is poured upon us, and the oath that is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, because we have sinned against him."  (KJV)

This says ALL Israel/Yisra'ĕl.  That would seem to indicate all twelve (12) tribes.

What is "the oath that is written in the law of Moses"?

Daniel 9:12

 12 "And he hath confirmed his words, which he spake against us, and against our judges that judged us, by bringing upon us a great evil: for under the whole heaven hath not been done as hath been done upon Jerusalem."  (KJV)

Is this true or exageration?  Is this phrase referring to the destruction of temple?  Is he referring to destruction of the temple?

Daniel 9:13

 13 "As it is written in the law of Moses, all this evil is come upon us: yet made we not our prayer before the LORD our God, that we might turn from our iniquities, and understand thy truth."  (KJV)

I want to try and determine EXACTLY what part of the pentauch he is referring to in this verse.

Daniel 9:19

 19 "O Lord, hear; O Lord, forgive; O Lord, hearken and do; defer not, for thine own sake, O my God: for thy city and thy people are called by thy name."  (KJV)

What does Daniel mean by this verse?  YAH rusalem and ?

Daniel 9:21

 21 "Yea, whiles I was speaking in prayer, even the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, touched me about the time of the evening oblation."  (KJV)

The angel Gabriel visits Daniel about the time of the evening oblation.  I need to find out more about this practice.  I suspect it has meaning both as a member of a community or as an individual.  This is significant as an angel is a messenger of YHWH.

Daniel 9:22

 22 "And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth to give thee skill and understanding."  (KJV)

The angel specifically tells Daniel that he has come to give Daniel skill and understanding.

Daniel 9:23

 23 "At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision."  (KJV)

The angel specifically tells Daniel that he has come to give Daniel skill and understanding.

Daniel 9:24

 24 "Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy."  (KJV)

The seventy (70) weeks is mentioned.

70 weeks = 70 Years

  1. Finish the transgression
  2. Make and end of sins
  3. Make reconciliation for iniquity
  4. Bring everlasting righteousness
  5. Seal up the vision and prophecy
  6. Anoint the most Holy

Daniel 9:25

 25 "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times."  (KJV)

 

 
7 weeks
= 7 years
3 score and 2 weeks
= 62 weeks
= 62 years
 
69 weeks
= 69 years

Daniel 9:26

 26 "And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined."  (KJV)

 

3 score and 2 weeks   = 62 weeks   = 62 years

Daniel 9:27

 27 "And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."  (KJV)

The covenant being referred to in this verse is the Torah.

1 weeks   = 7 years

Daniel 12:1

Daniel Bible Prophecy  (WWW.DANIELBIBLEPROPHECY)  (01/24/11)

Daniel 12:11

And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.  (KJV)

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF DANIEL:

"The prophet Daniel was given great authority in the secular government during the period c. 600 to c. 540 BCE, and based upon the biblical account in Daniel 2, he and his three friends were highest in the government. The Babylonian pagan temple priests were simultaneously reduced in authority. On page 209 Francesca Rochberg wrote, "One determinable change in the environment of later Babylonian scholarship was the shift of the locus of astronomical activity from the palace [i. e., support by secular government] to the temple [pagan support]. When exactly this occurred, however, is not well documented." On this same page we find, "By the fourth century B.C., however, evidence for the intense involvement of the king with the [pagan priestly] scholars appears to diminish." Rochberg neglected to see the excellent documentation in the Bible! When Daniel gained authority under King Nebuchadnezzar, he reduced the influence of the pagan priests who practiced their mixture of astrology with astronomy. Eventually they were ousted from the palace and took refuge in the pagan temple where they continued their practices. Both Ezra and Nehemiah, c. 450, were given favor by King Artaxerxes, and undoubtedly the pagan priests remained in disfavor with the king. On page 235 Rochberg wrote, "Regardless of the way astronomy functioned within the temple institution, association with the temple was without doubt the key to the survival of Babylonian astronomy for so many centuries after it had become seemingly defunct in the political sphere.""

"There is evidence from the Tanak that this priestly exile will be ended and the sacrificial system will be functioning again, even prior to the time of the Third Temple that is discussed in Ezek 40-48 where the Aaronic Priesthood is shown to function. This renewal of the functioning of the Aaronic priesthood is implied by the uses of the daily-sacrifice (Hebrew tamid, Strong's number 8548) in the prophesies of Daniel, especially Dan 11:31; 12:11, but also Dan 8:11, 12, 13. Through these prophesies of Daniel, the Tanak recognizes the legitimate functioning of this priesthood once again prior to the Messianic era of worldwide peace."

DATE OF WRITING:

Hosea, the son of Beeri, prophesied for quite some time, from 785 to 725 B.C. The Book of Hosea was likely written between 755 and 725 B.C.

"But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought."  (KJV)

Amos 5:6

 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel."  (KJV)

It says "the house of Joseph".  That would be Ephraim and Manasseh.  Also as Ephraim it would be the northern tribes which were dispersed among the nations.  In essence he is talking about all of the non Hebrew/Israelites of the world and telling us to seek YHWH.

Amos 5:8

"Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name:"  (KJV)

By keeping their civic calendar and modifying YHWH's calendar so that it became a calculated calendar rather than an observational calendar, the Hebrews began celebrating YHWH's feasts (mo'ed) and appointed times (mo'edim) on the wrong days.  This meant that these events were now MAN's feasts and appointed times and NOT YHWH's.  That is why they became an abomination to YHWH.

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF AMOS:

Amos was a shepherd of Tekoa in Judah, who exercised his ministry during the prosperous reign of Jeroboam II (786-746 B.C.). He prophesied in Israel at the great cult center of Bethel, from which he was finally expelled by the priest in charge of this royal sanctuary. The poetry of Amos, who denounces the hollow prosperity of the northern kingdom, is filled with imagery and language taken from his own pastoral background. The book is an anthology of his oracles and was compiled either by the prophet or by some of his disciples.

The prophecy begins with a sweeping indictment of Damascus, Philistia, Tyre, and Edom; but the forthright herdsman saves his climactic denunciation for Israel, whose injustice and idolatry are sins against the light granted to her. Israel could indeed expect the day of Yahweh, but it would be a day of darkness and not light. When Amos prophesied the overthrow of the sanctuary, the fall of the royal house, and the captivity of the people, it was more than Israelite officialdom could bear. The priest of Bethel drove Amos from the shrine-but not before hearing a terrible sentence pronounced upon himself.

Amos is a prophet of divine judgment, and the sovereignty of Yahweh in nature and history dominates his thought. But he was no innovator; his conservatism was in keeping with the whole prophetic tradition calling the people back to the high moral and religious demands of Yahweh's revelation. In common with the other prophets, Amos knew that divine punishment is never completely destructive; it is part of the hidden plan of God to bring salvation to men. The perversity of the human will may retard, but it cannot totally frustrate, this design of a loving God. The last oracle opens up a perspective of restoration under a Davidic king.

The Book of Amos may be divided as follows:

  • Judgment of the Nations (Amos 1:1-2:16)
  • Words and Woes for Israel (Amos 3:1-6:14)
  • Symbolic Visions: Threats and Promises (Amos 7:1-9:8, 9)
  • Epilogue: Messianic Perspective (Amos 9:8c-15)

GENERAL NOTES ON THE BOOK OF JONAH:

Jonah the son of Amittai (was) from Gath-hepher, from Kuryath-Adamos, which is near to Ascalon and Gaza and the sea coast. After this (prophet) had prophesied to the Ninevites in the time of Sardana the king, he did not remain in his own land because the Jews were jealous of him; but he took his mother, and went and dwelt in Assyria. He feared the reproach of the Jews, because he had prophesied, and his prophecy did not come to pass. He also rebuked Ahab the king, and called a famine upon the land and the people. He came to the widow of Elijah, and blessed her, because she received him, and he returned to Judaea. His mother died on the way, and he buried her by the side of Deborah's grave. He lived in the land of Serida, and died two years after the people had returned from Babylon, and was buried in the cave of Kainan1. This (prophet) prophesied that when the Messiah should come, the cities of the Jews would be overturned.

Micah 3:5-11

"Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err, that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him."  (KJV)

"Therefore night shall be unto you, that ye shall not have a vision; and it shall be dark unto you, that ye shall not divine; and the sun shall go down over the prophets, and the day shall be dark over them."  (KJV)

"Then shall the seers be ashamed, and the diviners confounded: yea, they shall all cover their lips; for there is no answer of God."  (KJV)

So much for the false doctrine that you cannot say anything bad about Israel or you are being anti-Semitic; obviously, YHWH and the prophets did not have a problem telling the truth to the Israelites.

Micah 4:3

'Then he called out to me, and spoke to me, saying, See, these that go toward the north country have quieted my ruach in the north country. 3291 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

3291  These very well could be the four horsemen and chariots of the apocalypse in Revelation 6, which are designed to really get things going in Jacob’s Trouble. It may well be that since in the prior vision Yisrael was scattered to Babylon, or Shinar, that these horsemen are YHWH’s judgment on the unsaved and unrepentant living in Babylon’s ways. But just like Jeremiah 30:7, this verse states Jacob’s redeemed remnant will be saved out of Jacob’s Trouble by protection.

Zechariah 6:11

"11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;"  (KJV)

The Messiah is referred to as 'The Branch'.
The BRANCH will rule upon his throne.
The BRANCH will be a priest upon HIS throne.

3292   This anointed High Priest is also Yisrael’s King, who rebuilds the Temple.  According to Torah, no mortal man can be both High Priest and King.  Only YHWH Himself in the person of Messiah can be both.  The same Yahshua, in the millennial age to come, will physically restore the Temple, first rebuilt in the Spirit realm of His universal body.

Zechariah 7:5

"Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me?"  (KJV)

The pagan name for the 5th month is Av.

While there are no qodesh days in this month, I think this is the month they were taken by the Babylonians.

The pagan name for the 7th month is Tishri.  The 7th month has the following qodesh days:

  • Yom Teruah (Day of Trumpets) on the 1st day.
  • Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) on the 10th day.
  • Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) on the 15th day.
  • HaShanna Rabbah (The Last Great Day) Feast of Conclusion on the 22nd day.

The 70 years was the period of Babylonian captivity (exile).

'19 "Thus said YHWH of hosts, ‘The fast of the fourth, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth months, are to be joy and gladness, and pleasant appointed times for the house of Yehudah – and they shall love the truth and the peace.’'  (The ISR Scriptures)

'19 This says YHWH tzevaoth; The fast of the fourth month, 3310  and the fast of the fifth, 3311  and the fast of the seventh, 3312  and the fast of the tenth, 3313  shall be to Beit Yahudah for simcha and gilah, and joyous pleasant moadim; 3314  therefore love the emet and shalom. 3315 '  (The Restoration Scriptures)

3310  The 4th month fast commemorates the breach in Jerusalem’s walls.

3311  The destruction of the Temple on the 9th of the 5th month.

3312  The fast commemorating the murder of Gedaliah.

3313  The fast commemorating the start of the siege against Jerusalem.

3314  This is the answer to the question of those who came earlier from Medo-Persia wanting to know if they should continue in the various fasts of Judah, which were man-made. Here YHWH says that in the great restoration of all things, He will take these various days of fasting like that of the 9th of the 5th month and the fast of Gedaliah in the 7th month and literally turn them into appointed times, somewhat equal and similar to the current feasts of Leviticus 23.

3315  Efrayim will be invited and expected to rejoice with Judah, based on the principle of Yisraelite brotherhood to “rejoice with those who rejoice” as found in the Renewed Covenant.

'19 So says Yahweh of Hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall become for joy and gladness and cheerful feasts to the house of Judah. Therefore, love truth and peace.'  (The Hebraic Roots Scriptures)

Zechariah 8:23

23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.  (KJV)

Taken in context with the previous verse, (Zechariah 8:22), the use of the word 'Jew' here could mean Judean or people from the house of Judah.  (It cannot mean the tribe of Judah since all Hebrews are allowed in Jerusalem and the Holy City is more the abode of the Levites than the Yahudites.)

'"Thus said YhWH of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all languages of the nations take hold, yea, they shall take hold of the edge of the garment of a man, a Yehudite, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that Elohim is with you .’ "  (The ISR Scriptures)

3323   Efrayim goes with a remnant of Judah, who has come to know YHWH as promised in Jeremiah 31:31.  The idea that Efrayim is supposed to “take hold” of unredeemed Judah is not Scripturally based.  This verse, taken in context with Jeremiah 31:31, states that Efrayim must join a born-again Spirit-filled Jew of the Renewed Covenant, in his, or her return.

'Thus says YHWH of hosts, In those days
