Do you remember in the Torah portion two weeks ago where the Almighty warns us not to add to, nor take away from His word?
"You shall not add to the word which I command you, nor take from it..." - Deut 4:2a
Here is a great example of why we (and especially the translators) should not. The first verse in this week’s Torah portion (Deut 7:12 – 11:25) has a stand-alone Alef Tav (את), which, as I’ve shown previously, represents Yeshua. Here is the verse in English, without the Alef (א) Tav (ת):
And here is the first part of the verse with the Alef Tav reinserted:
Yeshua is the Word made flesh and He is all throughout the Word. Yeshua is alive forevermore, as the Word is alive forevermore. Only one being (and his followers) would ever say that the Almighty’s Word has been done away with, and you DO NOT want to be taking his side.
I choose to listen to Yeshua, these judgments, and guard (shomer שומר) and do them, so YHVH Elohai will keep with me the covenant and the mercy which He swore to my fathers. And He will love me and bless me! 😁
If you’re interested, there is another Alef Tav treasure 6 verses later which reads:
The next stand-alone Alef Tav is in 9:7, which is still in this week’s Torah portion, and it builds on the one we just looked at. It reads:
The next stand-alone Alef Tav in this portion sits right next to our Father’s holy name. It can be found in 9:25. Here is the verse with Alef Tav reinserted:
The next witness is Yeshua connected to the 10 commandments! Yes, in the same Torah portion! Look at Deut 10:4, which should read, with the Alef Tav reinserted:
I am skipping one witness but the next stand-alone after the skipped one is in Deut 11:1, which should read:
This is an awe-some Torah portion packed full of witnesses of Yeshua!
May you be blessed as you bless the Almighty!
