YHVH ET Lives!

Jeremiah 38:16 hides a very special treasure in the Hebrew. The verse in the English reads:

So Zedekiah the king swore secretly to Jeremiah, saying, “As the LORD lives, who made our very souls, I will not put you to death, nor will I give you into the hand of these men who seek your life.” - Jer 38:16 NKJV

So Zedekiah the king swore secretly to Jeremiah, saying, “As YHVH ET (Yeshua) lives, who made our very souls, I will not put you to death, nor will I give you into the hand of these men who seek your life.” - Jer 38:16

The context of this verse reminds me of a verse in John, chapter 1:

Including our souls. 😉

May these treasures enrich your souls and bring you ever closer to our Messiah Yeshua. 💕

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. 😉)
