I sought Yeshua that my soul loves /Sng 3:1-4

In Song of Solomon, the book of love, we have a set of very compelling Alef Tav treasures embedded in the middle of the book, all within 4 verses. This is the witness of Yeshua that I go to first for the doubters because there are only four stand-alone Aleph Tavs in the whole book and they are all grouped together and where they occur in the verses is undeniably meaningful. Let me show you Yeshua in Song of Solomon!

At this point we have hopefully determined that Yeshua wasn’t just speaking idle words in Revelation when He repeated 4 times that He is the Aleph Tav. If you missed that blog, please see the blog entitled “the Mysterious Aleph Tav, here: https://wp.me/pcgXR4-18

If you’re strapped in and ready to continue, let’s go! If you have your bible handy, turn to Song of Solomon, chapter 3. Verses 1 through 4 read:

1) The Shulamite
By night on my bed I sought the one I love;
I sought him, but I did not find him. 
2)  “I will rise now,” I said,
“And go about the city;
In the streets and in the squares
I will seek the one I love.”
I sought him, but I did not find him.
3) The watchmen who go about the city found me;
I said,
“Have you seen the one I love?” 
4) Scarcely had I passed by them,
When I found the one I love.
I held him and would not let him go,
Until I had brought him to the house of my mother,
And into the chamber of her who conceived me.

On the surface there is no Yeshua in sight in those 4 verses, BUT let’s take a closer look in the original Hebrew, because Solomon hid some treasures in there for us to find! Don’t you just LOVE treasure hunts? 😀

Verse one:

…I sought את that my soul loves…

Sng 3:1a

The first big noticeable difference is that the Hebrew never says “THE SHULAMITE”. We are commanded not to add words, but anyway, this isn’t Torah so I guess the translators figured they could slip that in.

Did you spot our stand-alone Alef Tav (את) in the Hebrew? Hopefully by now your eyes are getting trained to see them right off, like a ruby amongst pearls.

For verse two of chapter 3 I’ve only dealt with the last part for space’s sake since that is where we find our treasure anyway. Here is the breakdown:

נפשי = my soul

…I will seek את that my soul loves.

Sng 3:2c

It makes me wonder, since the Hebrew word for “my soul” (נפשי) is in all four of these verses, why did the translators (of the NKJV) omit it? I don’t like that. Makes me wonder what else they omit. 😕

Now for verse 3. Let’s break down the second half of the verse!

The shin (ש) in front of “I love” (אהבה) means “that”. Making “that I love”.

Take a breather. A minute to reflect and process this. Are you seeing Yeshua? I realize this is a lot to absorb but take it slow. At some point you may need to go back over this after your Helper has had a chance to really soak this nectar into your cells. Whenever you’re ready we can move on to the last verse. Verse 4, of chapter 3. The whole verse in my bible reads:

Scarcely had I passed by them,

When I found the one I love.

I held him and would not let him go,

Until I had brought him to the house of my mother,

And into the chamber of her who conceived me.

Sng 3:4

Let’s break down the first part.

Leave it to Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, to hide a witness of His Mashiach, who would later come from his own loins, in the love letter that he wrote. He knew Yeshua would be born from his lineage from promises the Almighty had given his father, David. King David had taught his son about the secret Aleph Tav, from the clues in Torah and the prophets and Solomon had hidden them for our re-generation to find. Those of us who have the testimony of Yeshua and the witness of the Word of God. Those of us scattered tribes of Israel who are returning to the paths of old. The paths of Truth. The paths of YHVH. The same path our Messiah walked.

Incidentally (or NOT), the Hebrew word “davar” (דבר) above means “word”, which means this verse also says – “It is the glory of Eloheim to conceal a word, but the glory of kings is to search out a word.” 😉 I think we’ve determined our next blog post!

There is a short youtube on this Alef Tav nugget if you absorb knowledge easier through hearing. Follow this link: https://youtu.be/-PXoK2U0JZw

Thank you for stopping by! If you find this information enjoyable or important, feel free to share it! Israel is hungry for Yeshua!

I’m just a Hebrew gypsy exalting my Messiah Yeshua while waiting to go home. ❤

It's not about me, it's about my Father, His holy, unchanging Word, Yeshua made flesh! No ear tickling here. (And maybe a couple of posted recipes that I've been unable to find online elsewhere. 😉)
