Proverbs 12:19 – Daily Bible Verse

December 24, 2020

“Truthful words will stand forever, lying speech but a moment.”

In Hebrew, the word for ‘words’ is שפה or saphah and can mean ‘lip’ or ‘speech.’

Truth in Hebrew is אמת or emet and means ‘firmness,’ ‘faithfulness,’ and ‘truth.’ This word is interesting as it is comprised of the first letter of the Hebrew alef-bet, the last letter, and the middle letter. The alef and tav or את are the ‘sign of Yeshua,’ as they are the first and the last letters, his exact reference in Revelation 22:13. (Note: John didn’t write Revelation in Greek, he was Jewish and wrote in Aramaic/Hebrew.) The mem or מ is the middle letter of the alef-bet. This suggests that everything from beginning, middle, to end of Scripture is Truth. Again this is exactly what Yeshua said in John 17:17, “Your Word is Truth ….”

The Hebrew word for ‘stand’ is כון or kun and means ‘firm,’ ‘appointed,’ ‘confirmed,’ ‘determined,’ and ‘to be established.’

‘Forever’ comes from the Hebrew word עד or ad and has its root in adah. It means ‘perpetual’ and ‘eternal.’ This means it has continual existence from time past, through the present, and into the future.

The Hebrew word for ‘lying’ is שקר or sheker and means ‘falsehood’ and to be ‘deceived.’ It brings forth disappointment and injury as it frauds with wrongdoing.

The word for ‘speech’ is the Hebrew word לשון or lashon and means ‘tongue.’ It is also used for ‘languages,’ as well as the literal organ in the mouth. Lashon hara means ‘evil tongue’ and is used to refer to ‘gossip.’

The Hebrew word for ‘moment’ is רגע or rega and can also mean ‘suddenly,’ or ‘in an instant.’ In the modern language of Hebrew, rega is used to tell someone, ‘wait, give me a second.’

“Faithful lips speaking the word of truth from beginning to end will remain firmly established from times past, in the present and, into the future; lying tongues that speak falsehood to deceive and bring forth disappointment and fraud will last only an instant.”

Haggai 2:5-7 – Daily Bible Verse

December 7, 2020

“This is in keeping with the word that I promised in a covenant with you when you came out of Egypt, and my Spirit remains with you, so don’t be afraid!” For this is what Adonai-Tzva’ot says:

“It won’t be long before one more time I will shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land; and I will shake all the nations, so that the treasures of all the nations will flow in; and I will fill this house with glory,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot.”

The Hebrew word for ‘word’ is דבר or devar and means ‘speech,’ ‘saying.’

The Hebrew word for ‘covenant’ is ברית or brit and comes from the root ‘to cut.’ It means to ‘promise or pledge.’ It is a relationship between a lord and his servants that involves responsibilities and privileges.

The Hebrew word for ‘Spirit’ is רוח הקדש or ruach hakodesh (Holy Spirit) and means ‘breath’ or ‘wind’ of God.

The Hebrew word for ‘afraid’ is יראו or yirau and means ‘extreme fear,’ ‘dread.’

The Hebrew for ‘Tzva’ot’ is צבא or tsaba and means ‘army, war, or warfare.’ Yahweh Tzva’ot is a warrior with an army who makes warfare against His enemies. The Commander of His armies is Yeshua.

The Hebrew word for ‘shake’ is רעש or raash and means ‘to quake,’ ‘to tremble.’

The Hebrew word for ‘heavens’ is שמים or shamayim and means ‘sky.’ Within shamayim is the smaller word mayim which means ‘water.’

The Hebrew word for ‘earth’ is ארץ or eretz and means ‘earth,’ ‘land.’

The Hebrew word for ‘nations’ is גוים or goyim and means ‘peoples,’ usually non-Hebrew, non-Jewish people.

The Hebrew word for ‘treasures’ is חמדה or chemdah and means ‘delight’ or ‘desire.’

The Hebrew word for ‘fill’ is מלא or male/mala and means ‘to be accomplished,’ ‘to be completed,’ ‘finish, ordain, dedicate.’

The Hebrew word for ‘house’ is בית or bayit and in this instance means ‘house of God,’ or Temple.

The Hebrew word for ‘glory’ is כבוד or kavod and means ‘abundance of honor, splendor,’ and the object of honor and reverence. The word kavod also means ‘weight’ as in ‘falling or descending upon.’

“This is in keeping with the spoken word that I, Yahweh, pledged with you my servants, when you came out of Egypt, and the holy wind of my breath remains with you, so don’t dread or be fearful!”

For this is what Yahweh Army of Heaven says: “It won’t be long before one more time I will quake and tremble the sky, water and the land of the earth … and I will quake and tremble all the peoples of the world, so that the desire and delight of all the peoples will flow in; and I will complete, finish and dedicate the Temple with honor, splendor, and reverence descending upon it,” says Yahweh Army of Heaven.”

Psalm 1:1 – Daily Bible Verse

November 19, 2020

“How blessed are those who reject the advice of the wicked, don’t stand on the way of sinners or sit where scoffers sit! Their delight is in Adonai’s Torah; on his Torah they meditate day and night.” (Complete Jewish Bible)

In Hebrew the word for ‘blessed’ is אשר or esher and means ‘how happy!’

In Hebrew the word for ‘reject’ is the phrase ‘does not walk.’ The word for ‘walk in Hebrew is הלך or halacha and means ‘to go’ or ‘to come’ or ‘accompany.’ The word halacha is used to describe the way one walks according to the Biblical commands as outlined by Jewish rabbis. The ‘way of walking’ encompasses civil, criminal and religious rules.

The Hebrew word דרך or derech is also used in this verse. This word means ‘path,’ or ‘course of life.’ It would coincide with halacha as the ‘way to walk’ in the ‘course of life’ should be according to Torah. The derech is also a journey suggesting a life that is daily transformed.

The Hebrew word for ‘advice’ is עצה or etzah and means ‘counsel’ or ‘purpose.’

The Hebrew word for ‘wicked’ is רשע or rasha and means ‘criminal,’ or ‘guilty of a moral crime’ especially in relation to a hostility toward God. It includes being guilty of sin against God or another person.

‘Sinners’ in Hebrew is חטא or chattah and means ‘offenders’ and ‘those who have sinned.’ The root of this word is chat and means ‘to miss’ as ‘to miss the mark’ as if one were shooting an arrow. The commandments of God or Torah are the goal or the target. When one ‘misses the mark,’ they ‘fall short of God’s glory,’ and are accounted as a sinner.

The Hebrew word for ‘scoffers’ is לוץ or lutz and means ‘ambassador,’ ‘interpretor,’ or ‘scoffer.’ When used as interpretor or ambassador, it suggests ‘speaking in opposition to God.’ They are accusing, proud, and incapable of being disciplined.

The Hebrew word for ‘sit’ is ישב or yashab and means ‘to dwell’ or ‘remain.’ This is reference to being ‘seated’ and ‘remaining.’ Another word for ‘sit’ is מושב or moshav and means ‘an assembly.’ In Isra’el a moshav is an agricultural town or community that works together similar to a kibbutz. Both of these terms are used in the Hebrew of this verse.

The Hebrew word for ‘delight’ is חפץ or chephetz and means ‘desire,’ ‘pleasure,’ ‘longing’ from a willful sense.

In the Complete Jewish Bible and other Hebraic translations of Scripture, the word Torah is used instead of ‘law,’ because torah is the Hebrew word found in this verse. Torah means ‘teachings and instructions’ and refers to the first five books of the Bible.

‘Meditate’ in Hebrew is הגה or hagah and means ‘to speak,’ ‘to utter,’ ‘to moan.’ The word haggadah comes from this word and is used for ‘the telling’ of the Passover account during a Pesach seder.

“How happy! are those who do not walk or accompany the morally guilty of crimes through their journey on the pathway of the commandments, who do not make their halacha, or dwell with, or assemble with, or be an ambassador of those who miss the mark of God’s directions and offend Him. Instead, their pleasure, their longing is in the teachings of Yahweh, and on His instructions they moan, utter, and speak all the time, both day and night.”
