Isaiah 57:1

“The righteous person perishes, and nobody gives it a thought. Godly men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous person is taken away from the evil yet to come.”

January 29, 2021

The Hebrew word for ‘righteous’ is צדיק or tzadik and means ‘blameless, innocent, one in the right, just in one’s cause, and vindicated by God.’

‘Perish’ in Hebrew is אבד or abad and means ‘annihilate, destroyed.’ Regarding individuals, this word means ‘vanish from memory.’ It also means ‘put to death’ or ‘blot out’ as in idols.

The phrase ‘nobody gives it a thought’ is ‘takes to heart’ or שום על לב or sum al lev. Sum means ‘to place or set’ in the sense of directing their attention or putting their mind to.’ Al is a preposition that means ‘upon, above or over.’ Lev means ‘inner man, will, and mind.’ Lev carries with it the idea of ‘thinking or reflecting’ with the soul.

In Hebrew, the word for ‘godly’ is חסד or chesed and means ‘good and kind’. Chesed also means ‘favored by God.’

The phrase ‘taken away’ in Hebrew is אסף or asaph and means ‘to gather, assemble, and remove.’ This word can refer to an individual or a group of people. It is used in reference to ‘gathering an army together.’

‘Evil’ in Hebrew is רע or ra and means ‘bad, painful, misery, distress.’ It is used of Haman as ‘wicked’.

The blameless, innocent, person in the right, vindicated by God is annihilated and destroyed and vanished from memory and no one in their inner man, their soul, reflects or thinks about it. Good and kind men and women, favored by God are gathered together, assembled as an army, and removed from the pain, misery and distress of the wicked.”

Romans 12:18

January 21, 2020

“If possible, and to the extent that it depends on you, live in peace with all people.”

‘Peace in Hebrew’ is shalom. This word is rooted in wholeness, completeness, soundness, health, safety and prosperity, and implying permanence. This is why shalom is used as a greeting in Isra’el: “May you be filled with a complete and perfect peace and be full of well-being.”

Hebrew Letter Pictures

שלום

Shin or the first letter (right to left) of shalom is a picture of a ‘Tooth’ and means ‘to consume or destroy.’

Lamed or the second letter is a picture of a ‘Shepherd’s Staff’ and means ‘leader.’ It can also represent a ‘king,’ or ‘the heart’ of a matter.

Vav or the third letter is a picture of a ‘Tooth’ and means ‘binding’ or ‘bound to.’

Mem or the fourth letter is a picture of ‘Water’ and means ‘mighty’ or ‘chaos.’

The word picture for shalom: The destruction of the leader bound to chaos.

“If possible, and to the extent that it depends on you, live in shalom, destroying the leader bound to chaos, with all people.”

A companion verse to Romans 12:18 is John 14:27:

““What I [Yeshua] am leaving with you is shalom — I am giving you my shalom. I don’t give the way the world gives. Don’t let yourselves be upset or frightened.”

We are to live in the shalom of Yeshua when it comes to living with other people. We are to speak shalom to people: “May you be filled with a complete and perfect peace and be full of well-being.” The world will never know shalom without Yeshua and therefore, we should never expect to find true shalom in this world. We can however, bring shalom to the world just as Yeshua did.

Luke 21:19 – Daily Bible Verse

January 14, 2021

“By standing firm you will save your lives.”

‘Stand firm’ in Greek is hupomoné and means ‘to patiently endure’ or ‘remain behind.’

In Hebrew ‘patient’ is סבלנות or savlanoot and means ‘pain and suffering.’

‘Save’ in Greek is ktaomai and means ‘to aquire,’ ‘obtain,’ or ‘possess.’

‘Save in Hebrew is ישע or yasha and is from where the name Yeshua, the Hebrew name for ‘Jesus’ comes.

‘Life’ in Greek is psuché and means ‘the vital breath of life,’ the ‘human soul.’

‘Life’ in Hebrew is חי or chai.

‘Soul’ in Hebrew is נקש or nephesh and means ‘a living being with desires, passions, and emotions.’

“By remaining behind, patiently suffering, you will obtain Yeshua, the vital breath of life, the salvation of your own life soul.”

Two other verses come to mind when reading the words of Yeshua in Luke.

“Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered” (Hebrews 5:8).

“This is when perseverance is needed on the part of God’s people, those who observe his commands and exercise Yeshua’s faithfulness” (Revelation 14:12).

Micah 6:8 – Daily Bible Verse

January 4, 2021

“Human being, you have already been told what is good, what Adonai demands of you — no more than to act justly, love grace and walk in purity with your God.”

The Hebrew for ‘human being’ is אדום or adam, the name of the first human being. It is used for ‘humanity.’ This word also is ‘red earth.’

“You have already been told” is the Hebrew word נגד or nagad and means ‘shown,’ ‘declare,’ or ‘be conspicuous.’

‘Good’ in Hebrew is טוב or tov and means ‘pleasant,’ and ‘agreeable.’

Adonai is Yahweh or the yod hey vav hey.

The Hebrew word for ‘demands’ is דרש or darash and means ‘to seek’ or ‘to resort.’

‘Justly’ in Hebrew is משפט or mishpat and means ‘judgment.’ It also means ‘deserving,’ ‘properly,’ and ‘the way prescribed as right.’

‘To love mercy’ is ahavat chesed or אהבת חסד in Hebrew. ‘Love’ is absolute and covers ‘love’ of man toward God, man to man, man to woman, to yourself, to your neighbor, and a love for Jerusalem. ‘Mercy’ is favor, kindness, and goodness. These are fruits of the Spirit that are expressed between humans.

The Hebrew word for ‘walk’ is הלך or halacha which is used to describe the way one walks out the commands of Yahweh. It also means ‘to go’ and ‘to come’ suggesting that whether you are coming or going in your life, your halacha should show forth evidence of Yahweh.

The Hebrew word for ‘purity’ found in this verse is צנע or tzana and means ‘to be modest,’ ‘reserved,’ or ‘humbly.’ There are two Hebrew words for ‘purity,’ zaku and barar and they are not used in this verse.

‘Your God’ is אלהים or Elohim and in this verse refers not to other ‘gods’ or one’s own personal idea of ‘god,’ but the God called Yahweh. The word ‘your’ is singular not plural as is always the case when referring to the God of Isra’el.

“Mankind, inclusive of men and women, it has been declared to you about what is pleasant and agreeable, what Yahweh seeks you to do – you must live the way that is prescribed as right, expressing the Spirit’s fruits of kindness and goodness, and to come and go in a reserved, modest manner before Yahweh who is your Elohim.”
