A Menorah (light) shines in darkness in The Temple is set to the pattern seen at Mt. Sinai as YHWH came in dark smoke. A pillar of smoke lead them during the day and a pillar of fire at night for 40 years…day and night.
40 years of darkness and light in The Wilderness.
Why the Wilderness? Because it is there that we allow God to mediate for us. We come away from the cares of the world. We retire from work to what…work another job? No, to meditate on His words day and night. How often are you purposely entering your wilderness? Early in the morning? Late at night when all is calm…and now your dreams are sweet since you’ve meditated on Him?
Exodus 20 Ups and Downs
God came down from above to the mountain top in the darkness of stormy clouds so humans would not die and so they would also learn to ‘fear’ God as ‘holy’..not like themselves made of flesh. Man can not touch God or they would die…that energy force would shock the body to death. He showed up in thunderings and flashing lightening to prevent man’s premature death.
Moses Up…Mosch down…Mosche Up…Mosche down. There is a pattern to this…especially seen in these accounts in the study of Yitro.
God is Up…God is down…Adam
God is Up…God is down….Enoch
God is Up…God is down…Noach
God is Up…God is down…Abraham
God is Up…God is down…Mosche – 40th move was into Promised Land
God is Up…God is down…David
God is Up…God is down…Solomon
God is Up….God is down…Prophets – ie. Elijah in cave..fed 3 times…ran for 40 days nights.
God is Up….God is down…Samuel
God is Up….God is down….Yeshuah Jesus
4,000 years to Suffering Servant
4,000 years to King Kings New heaven and earth.
40 is a pattern of purification of man on the earth.
Mat 12:34 You snakes! How can you who are evil say anything good? For the mouth speaks what overflows from the heart.
Mat 12:35 The good person brings forth good things from his store of good, and the evil person brings forth evil things from his store of evil.
Mat 12:36 Moreover, I tell you this: on the Day of Judgment people will have to give account for every careless word they have spoken;
From out of the abundance of God’s heart He spoke many words –
Thus, so goes the heart of God…speaking to man through His Spirit.
Exo 20:1 Then God said all these words:
The word is not commandments but Devarim…words…”m” makes the word plural..thus, words.
What did he say? These are the first words ADONAI spoke to them. The first words describe who God is and what He did for them.
When anyone hears these first words….they know all of the rest of the words follow it.
Exo 20:2 א “I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the abode of slavery.
When we say the words, The Lord’s Prayer….we know it by it’s first words…”Our Father, who art in heaven…..”
When Yeshua Jesus said, “My God! My God! Why have you abandoned me?” Those standing at the cross knew he was referring to Psalms…Psalms 22.
It described his pain and anguish that He agreed to endure as God come in the flesh… to die for the penalty of sin, There would only be One that could fill up that Scripture…The Messiach. Psalm 22:8 “He committed himself to ADONAI, so let him rescue him!” 22:24 “….he did not hide his face from him but listened to his cry,” (God did not abandon The Son…he heard him!)
For 40 years…day and night they lived out The Instructions of correct living…in The Wilderness.
40 x 360 days is 14,400 day and 14,400 nights. 28,800 segments divided between day and nights when they crossed over and applied the morning and evening sacrifices. The day the waters of the River Yarden split open and was dry for them to walk on…the manna bread stopped falling from heaven.
The 144,000 virgin witnesses…those that have not violated Torah…will go out and instruct the world. 12,000 from each of Israel’s twelve children. They will be teaching The Torah and they are told that they will be killed for such…as they always have been through history. The Torah has been a thorn in the side for The Gentile. They want the Jew’s Jesus, but they don’t think any of the rest that belongs to The Jewish Jesus.
Killing the 144,000 witnesses will be easy because by killing The Torah they kill the name, Yeshua. His Hebrew name Yeshua was removed because it did not fit the profile of a soldier wearing armor. The priestly garments no longer made sense once The Temple was gone but Rome did make sense and she took over with pictures…wrong pictures…of a white Jesus…and his mother to be venerated.
When a father wants his family to leave home (to spread the Good News) he may even burn his own home down so they will go into all the world. Because the home is missing it should NOT be assumed that all of the rest of the instructions in the home were burnt up, too. The doorpost had a mazuzah on it made of iron that did NOT melt. The Torah would not leave their hearts.
The Good News of Messiah’s resurrection would be verified by the continued sharing of The Lord’s Feasts via The Hebrew calendar. The language comes back to clarify the intent of The Creator. There is no instruction without God’s calendar. There are no solar and lunar dress rehearsals without God’s calendar to see them. Men have closed the door to God….and don’t see why the ‘burnt house’ should be rebuilt. Even The Herod’s knew to rebuild The Temple.
Church Ministers to the Jew do not announce when The Feast of Tabernacles or Yom Kippur, etc. No one tells ‘the church’ what day it is. I sat in an mega church in Arizona and ask the man with the title, ‘Minister to the Jews’ why he did not have someone announce what day it was? I knew it was Passover and what it meant but no one took advantage of the opportunity of telling it’s depth.
Passover is The Resurrection from Egypt occurring on the same day the churches Jewish Jesus died on the cross. He filled up what had been spoken about him 1500 years before…on Day Three.
Exo 19:16 On the morning of the third day, there was thunder, lightning and a thick cloud on the mountain. Then a shofar blast sounded so loudly that all the people in the camp trembled.
This looks to Yeshua’s resurrection and it refers to His second coming…with a shofar blast…as the earth shakes and people tremble.
He was coming to them in Three Days. This pattern is to be taught to our children….not treated as a ‘thorn in our side’ to be pulled out and burnt up.
Egypt…the world…they are told to never go there again to live…visit, yes!…but never to stay and set up house. Yeshua Jesus was ‘safe there’ as a babe and young child. But then God told them to return when this particular King Herod was dead. Yeshua’s cousin Yochanan (John) was taken to the desert by his mother as they killed Elisabeth’s priestly husband Zechariah between The Temple and the altar. She and Zechariah came from the family line of Aharon, making their son Yochanan a threat to be High Priest of The Temple.
We don’t know about Miriam’s husband Yosef’s husband dying but we know they had several more children…male and female. Yeshua’s half brother was another Yochanan of whom stood at the cross with his mother Miriam as well as Joshua, his half brother.
Turning to a Greek Jesus would have been easy in those years…but it wasn’t a Greek Jesus that threatened The Herods. These Herod’s were a threat to themselves as none of them qualified to be High Priest of The Temple. Not even a Levite could be the High Priest…God deemed Aharon’s line to be the line to the high priest. Zechariah and Elizabeth were both Aharonic descendants. It was their son Yochanan, known as John the Baptist, that was qualified. The Herods saw to it that he was behead. To be a qualified high priest meant death. We are to be high priest…and how many are threatened for bringing God’s torah back to the earth?
In 20 BC Herod the Great, the son of Antipater, began to rebuild The Temple. Antipater was from the family of Esau (Edomites) converted to Judaism and his mother was Kupros, an Arab. Herod the Great took the grand daughter of John Hyrcanus II of the Hasmonian family as wife. Hasmonians came from the Maccabees who fought for The Temple…but again were not qualified priests as The Essences argued.
Thus, even by Herod the Great marrying a Miriam, she was not of the Aharonic line either to help The Herod’s cause to be high priest at The Temple. The earth was full of violence (not following Torah) especially in whom God was asked to accept the people’s offerings. God refused such change and burnt His own house down. It was The Torah or no Torah as far as The Temple was concerned.
Two babies hidden away…Yochanan in the wilderness of life and the other Yeshua – thought to be a problem but did not even qualified to be a high priest – hidden in the world. Yeshua’s human ancestry came through David a Benjamite.
Yeshua life will picture orphaned Benjamin whose mother Rachel was a liar and thief over idols. She died at his birth naming him, ‘son of my sorrow. His entire clan including woman and children are wiped out by Israelites numbering 400,000 sword bearing men.
After Israelite loses 44,000 and 33 soldiers in two battles and a squirmish to Benjamin…God now turns to Benjamin so they recognize their sin on the Third day. Every person in his tribe will die except for 600 men that fled and hid for four months in The Rock of Rimmon. FOUR months of hiding. After four months of seeking them out, the brothers rescind and believe they should be given wives so that their father Ya’cov could maintain his 12 tribes as an inheritance.
Jdg 19:1 In those days, when there was no king in Isra’el, there was a certain Levi living on the far side of the Efrayim hills who took a woman from Beit-Lechem in Y’hudah to be his concubine.
Jdg 19:2 But his concubine was unfaithful to him and left him to go to her father’s house at Beit-Lechem in Y’hudah, where she stayed for some time, four months.
In 2019 or 6019 there is no king in Israel.
Could it be that we are this concubine…of whom has left her priestly husband Yeshua? Is our husband
staying away 4,000 years? He did wait 4,000 years from Adam to come…and this story is told between that time line. Let us pray this is about that 4,000 segment of history. I saw this because we also have The Third Day account to hold our hope on. And, yet, we know there is 8,000 years in Adonai’s program before we the New Heavens and Earth. And yet, Ezekiel’s Temple happens between 6,000 to 7,000 years of this program… We see it’s dimensions laid out and nothing that size has ben seen on the earth yet…it is in our future….any day…to be used during the millennium.
Why did her husband not seek her out before the four months? Then he and a servant boy with two donkeys go to find her. It sound like Abraham’s account of leaving with his servant boy and Isaac who was to be sacrificed and didn’t but ..which this girl will die.
Adonai is always asking his bride to return to him. When there were finally only 600 men left…some virgins were found so the tribe of Benjamin would not die out. In the earth’s 6000 year are there a few virgins that have oil in their lamps to find their way to dance before The Groom?
Are we giving God our ‘leftovers’?
The Benjamites get the left overs of woman you might say as 400 wives are given to them after they slaughtered the town Yavesh-Gil’ad for not helping with the fight against Benjamin. The other wives for the other 200 men were acquired through a yearly festival where woman danced at Shiloh.
In-grafting was necessary for Benjamites to survive. We know the Jew and the Gentile are to be grafted into God’s Covenant…so we are one new man in Yeshua just as Ephraim and Manassah would become one stick under Joseph. But, yet there the names of The Twelve Tribes are remembered by Adonai on The New Tabernacles to come.
Benjamin became orphaned from the other 11 tribes over a few ‘good-for-nothing rapists’ who returned a Levy priests concubine for dead on his doorstep. Her priestly husband was inside and not out looking for her. She had run away from this husband and yet was now returning with him to their home.
This next scene sounds like the ‘Days of Lot’. Abraham had his own men defend Lot when he was taken and now since Lot returned to his city life again…God burnt his town down.
This happens when there is no king but only Levite judges in the land. This is a Levite that this has happened to. After these events Israel asks for a king and they get terrible Saul for forty years…David for forty years and then Solomon for forty years…(120 years for 3 kings)…and then it goes to pot…with one king reigning 3 months.
Jdg 19:22 They were relaxing, when suddenly some men from the city, good-for-nothings, surrounded the house and began beating at the door. “Send out the man who came home with you!” they demanded of the old man whose house it was. “We want to have sex with him!”
Jdg 19:23 The man whose house it was went out and said to them, “No, my brothers, please don’t do anything as wrong as this. Look, he’s just a guest in my house; don’t do this degrading thing.
Jdg 19:24 Here’s my daughter, who’s a virgin, and his concubine. I’ll bring them out. Mistreat them, do what you want to them, but don’t do such a degrading thing to this man.”
Jdg 19:25 However, the men wouldn’t listen to him; so the man took hold of his concubine and brought her out to them. They raped her and abused her all night long; only at dawn did they let her go.
Jdg 19:26 At daybreak the woman came and fell down at the door of the man’s house where her husband was, and she was still there when it grew light.
Jdg 19:27 When her husband got up, opened the doors of the house, and went out to go on his way, he saw the woman lying there with her hands stretched out toward the door.
Jdg 19:28 He said to her, “Get up! Let’s go!” But there was no answer. So he loaded her body on the donkey and began his trip home.
This priest did not check on her nor did the old man inside the house. Her hands were crying for him to help her but his door was closed to her plea. He cuts up her body into twelve pieces and delivers one piece to each of the Israelite tribes for them to judge what should happen to the Benjamites.
They were wrong in raping. He was wrong in allowing her to be sent instead of himself and he was not watching for his bride’s return. She bled out at his doorstep. Did he feel guilty since she never wanted to be with him anyway? She was with him because her father wanted her to be with him? Is she a picture of ‘the church’ today?
The ‘strength of Ya’cov’s’ right hand (Benjamin) was going to be severed Ya’cov’s body. The Tribe of Benjamin was almost lost until he agreed to marry a foreign woman…outside their clan but within the people of Israel. The child Benjamin suffered as a child with no mother and now again we see him pictured as a ‘suffering servant’. He loses 25,100 men and then their entire city, woman and children, cattle and everything they had was destroyed.
Benjamin still had a place on the ‘seating chart’ with The Tribes…even as they are still small and lived close to Judah and Dan.
Today, we look for our King Yeshua to sit on The Throne of David as High Priest over the earth and over heaven. He became earth’s high priest by shedding heavenly blood on earth. He will rule over all as Yeshua is qualified as the highest…earthly and Heavenly Melchizedek.
When signing up for this Melchizedek kingdom, the questionnaire would state….”Are you willing to die on the job?” We are not to fear physical death because they are dedicated to bringing other fleshly humans to The King’s Banquet properly dressed. You can’t buy the robe..it has to be given to you by the King himself. Everyone is wearing the same white robe, dipped in His blood.
Four – the letter Dahlet – pictured by a door, ד . The dahlet’s vertical line has a horizontal line across the top that protrudes out at the top right. If we extend it a little more, which we could because it still will not look like any of the other Hebrew letters, it takes the shape of the stake (dorr) that Yeshua Jesus hung on to die for the penalty of sin. It is the same door seen in The Exodus account that blood was wiped across the top and both sides. The Dahlet is The Door…all through history pointing, pointing, pointing forward and backward in history…wood…blood…door…in the 4000th year of the earth.
The Door – God is the one knocking on our door…and he won’t stop for 8,000 years. He waits for every person to open to Him. The Dahlet symbolism truly is seen running through our Creator’s thoughts to bring reality to us. 4,000 years from Adam to ‘Second Adom’. 4,000 years from ‘Risen Adom to Risen King.) The Door to the Eighth Day – New Beginnings – New Heaven and Earth.
Day One – Chaos is separated by The Light speaking order. God spoke everything into existence.
It was even Day Four when: Genesis 1:16 “God made the two great lights – the larger light to rule the day and the smaller light to rule the night – and the stars.”
God says that the moon and sun..the brighter light and the lesser light are His witnesses as well as the luminaries (stars). All things give witness to the ‘Hand of God’. All of creation speaks out and so why not even the days of a 360-day calendar? We could use a 365-day calendar and any other calendar, but it is this 360-day calendar that points. It is the calendar Enoch speaks about.
The earth cycled through the rosh chodesh (head of month) 12 times every year for forty years in The Wilderness. How many earth days is that? 14,400 day. Where else do we see The Aleph (1) and two fours (dahlets) together? Yes, it’s the 144,000 that give witness to the testimony of The Living Torah (Yeshua).
Since, just realizing this….what else gives us this same theme of 40 years? Kings….Yes, kings were designated to rule 40 years. David was anointed to be king early on as a young man…but King Saul’s reign was not complete thus we read about David and his many men who are chased around by Saul until Saul finally dies. David will reign 7 years in Hevron (Hebron) and then 33 years in Jerusalem making a total of 40 years. David’s 7 years is seen in Adam in the Gan of Eden for 7 years and then cast out…it is seen in Noah sitting for 7 days before the waters of baptism flood the world. The Number 33 even shows up in Noach’s life as The Book of Jubilees is firm that it began in the year 1333.
And, the man that started out asking for God’s wisdom to reign was Solomon. He then turned to many wives who even had him offer their firstborn children by Solomon to the god Molech. Solomon lost the kingdom because he rewrote The Torah. But, 40 years was his to reign and then we see that kingdom going down hill where one of his sons only reigned 3 months. Hmm…a good pattern for a new king to come after 3 months……and THREE DAYS…as God tells them in Exodus 21 to be prepared for The Third Day.
Exo 19:1 In the third month after the people of Isra’el had left the land of Egypt, the same day they came to the Sinai Desert.
This is the month of Sivan….when The Holy Spirit is given and the instructions. (Nissan, Iyyar, Sivan)
Exo 19:10 so Adonai said to Moshe, “Go to the people; today and tomorrow separate them for me by having them wash their clothing; (baptize themselves)
Exo 19:11 and prepare for the third day. For on the third day, Adonai will come down on Mount Sinai before the eyes of all the people.
Scriptures tells us that one day until The Lord (Heaven’s time) is likened to one thousand years.
Thus, the third day is a pattern to 3,000 years.
Thus, since The Suffering Servant Yeshua came at year 4000 and died and rose again…we are 2,000 years from then even as our calendars were reset to start again at his death and resurrection. Today we say it is year 2019…thus we are two thousand and nineteen years from then.
We are 2 days (2 thousands years) since The Suffering Servant Yeshua Jesus rose up…in order to come again as King of Kings.
In fact, he hung on the cross at noon and died at 3:00 pm. Those three hours brought (not an eclipse) but a Wonder upon the earth of steep darkness ending with earthquakes that rent (split) the thick Temple Veil.
How many days is the earth? Six Days Old….and the first Adam was created on Day Six. The ‘second Adom’ born by blood is coming back on Day Six. It is the blood on His garment that we are to attach ourselves to. God’s shed blood is the clothing we must wear to enter the wedding hall…to sit down…to no longer stand as a slave…but to ‘sit down’ as a friend at his table of praise.
Praise may cost us our lives….my life…your life. Could you love God enough to die for Him? To die for His Words of truth? To die for The Living Torah Yeshua the Messiach? This is the question that is faced all believers.
The Greatest Words Ever Spoken does connect us to The Greatest Story Ever Told.
It is God’s Words of truth that man makes into living stories (movies) so we can visualize what it could have been like….to know that ADONAI’S devarim are real.
Torah in Hebrew means instruction. Greek says torah means, legislation. Greek thinkers have tried to eliminate the original meaning…by confusing the meaning.
Every specie has a torah built into it. The moon, sun, stars, earth…cooperate so man can function on God’s earth. Birds have a torah known as instinct. Every creature has a torah (cycle) for reproduction, even seeds have their own torah.
God’s Torah spreads out across the earth in words…in action…in patterns.
From the beginning is still referenced by the disciple John as they all knew we must look back to the beginning of time to see how God thinks and acts as God does NOT change.
Man shifts words to bring on new meanings that even become the opposite by the wink of an eye. We are to make our ‘yes’ yes and our ‘no’ to mean ‘no’…and do not swear by God…. bringing Him into your conversation that was never His conversation. No Swearing by God’s name in any form. God’s name has become a ‘curse’ word on the earth. God damn flows freely from men’s mouths and they will be held accountable for every word spoken…as God hold’s himself accountable to His every devarim.
God set the standard for the earth in the first Six Days of His work. It was not five…not seven…but he worked Six (our Friday). And, on Day Six he created man from the dust of the earth….likened to molded clay that He then breathed His spirit of life into.
God put Adam to sleep (rest) on Adam’s 7th day of life. He rested and would find ‘comfort’ of a woman coming on his Day Seven.
He had personal pain but was anesthetized for pain…he slept through it and woke up on The Seventh Day.
Adonai had taken bone of his bones – pierced from his side – on the 6th Day of the week. It is the day of doubles likened to the double manna that would feed them every day of the week but Day Seven…then there was none. Friday was double coupon day… Double manna and now Double (two) human beings arrived to earth. Day Six is about Doubles….and we see ourselves hurrying perhaps in double work so we can be enjoy, The Rest. It’s a pattern from the beginning, seen in the middle and filling up the earth as man looks to their Seventh Day of Rest…known as The Millennium.
The helpmate was given on Creation Day 13. It was The Bride’s Day One. It was Adam’s Day 7 and yet it was Day 6 of the week.
All days are correct just as it is said, “He will be born at the House of Bread (Beth’el ham). He will be a Nazarene. He will come out of Egypt. He will be a son of David. He will be a ‘suffering servant’ and yet He will be ‘king of kings.’
Creation, Dates, Numbers, Luminaries, Stories all are pictures that duplicate and pattern throughout the world’s history. Is there anything new under the sun according to The Psalmist Solomon? These things will be new to whom they have been hidden. In fact, there are so many levels of understanding that almost no one will be wrong in their discussion about the things of ADONAI…because He is the “THEE Author” that embraces the depth of the universe.
But, what can NOT be tolerated is that the One being spoken about is NOT God come in the flesh. The one who does not believe denies The Spirit of God. Denying the Spirit of God…is not forgiven. Is this harsh? Yes, but it is man himself that rejects God…and His purposes through coming in the flesh and how to save man from their penalty.
God was, is and will be.
Exo 3:13 Moshe said to God, “Look, when I appear before the people of Isra’el and say to them, ‘The God of your ancestors has sent me to you’; and they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”
Exo 3:14 God said to Moshe, “Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh [I am/will be what I am/will be],” and added, “Here is what to say to the people of Isra’el: ‘Ehyeh [I Am or I Will Be] has sent me to you.’ ”
He will come in the name that is needed at that time in history to save man from the deception that Elohim is NOT a living and acting God. This is what God is proving to the world by moving His spirit across the universe to keep ‘faith’ on the earth.
At the ‘end of days’ it is written in The Scriptures that it is worried that there won’t be any ‘faith’ found on the earth. This ‘faith’ is tied to the god-man Yeshua Jesus. The entire 8000 years of history is dedicated to bringing in an eternal reign of beings that desire to be part of His Wonder.
Exo 3:20 But I will reach out my hand and strike Egypt with all my wonders that I will do there. After that, he will let you go.
The Wonder is a story written by The Wonder. People call God Wonderful, Counselor and more….but the d’varim (word) in that Scripture is Wonder. Wonder certainly is above a name called, wonderful. Our Creator is more than wonderful….He is A Wonder…our Wonder…and we should be in awe over this Wonder that is surrounding us in every aspect of our lives.
Who are we to believe from the beginning to the New End that is about to happen on the earth?\
Exo 3:15 God said further to Moshe, “Say this to the people of Isra’el: ‘Yud-Heh-Vav-Heh (י ה ו ה ) [Adonai], the God of your fathers, the God of Avraham, the God of Yitz’chak and the God of Ya`akov, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever; this is how I am to be remembered generation after generation.
Exo 3:16 Go, gather the leaders of Isra’el together, and say to them, ‘Adonai, the God of your fathers, the God of Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya`akov, has appeared to me and said, “I have been paying close attention to you and have seen what is being done to you in Egypt;
Egypt is the world. God sees what is happening to His children. He is coming again……..
On The Third Day….at 6000 years….just as Noach was 600 years old when he got his family in the ark.
One year later he got off the ark on Day 27. Benjamin will have 27,100 warrior men with only 600 surviving his brother’s onslaught. So, so many pictures that point…for us to search out.
Did Yeshua leave the earth in 27 AD. Some believe so…it was a Shemittah year….it set people free.
Yeshua was also here in year 17 AD…which many deem the new Jubilee begins. Ten years later he finished up
his ministry and then totally exposed himself enough so that they killed him….as was ordained from the Time of the first Adam.
It’s a ‘Plan of Wonder’ for no single human being to be blamed. Free will..not being a robot..admitting we are imperfect is why The Torah was given. If God’s instruction is removed, man has no guideline for what sin is. It is then that The Adversary wins. There was one man that Yeshua said that he lost…but it was predetermine that he would be lost…because The Adversary was allowed to deceive him. The ‘son of perdition’ was Judas of Ascarot. The same Adversary had ask God for Job as God ask if he had ever considered Job. When The Adversary ask for Job it was granted. Job was handed over to prove Job’s love for God. But, Job’s life could NOT be requested.
God tells us that it was He that acted against Job…not Satan….Satan is a mere created angelic being of whom is quite beautiful but with a rebellious spirit. He is not omnipresent (to be present everywhere at the same time) as God is able. The Deceiver has no power but fights with other angels in that realm. We are to pray for those intercessors fighting for us.
The closing statements – 42
Job 42:11 – “They consoled and comforted him for all the evils Adonai had inflicted on him.”
God allows requests for us but it is God that has to agree and God that inflicts it. It is all to prove that God is able to have a ‘remnant’ that is His. ADONAI is seeking those that know their future is greater because He who holds them is greater than he that asks for you.
Read the book of Job….then you feel the strength of Job’s response….
Job 42:1 Then [at last,] Iyov gave Adonai this answer:
Job 42:2 “I know that you can do everything, that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
Job 42:3 “[You asked,] ‘Who is this, hiding counsel, without having knowledge?’ Yes, I spoke, without understanding, of wonders far beyond me, which I didn’t know.
Job 42:4 “Please listen, and I will speak. [You said,] ‘I will ask questions; and you, give me answers’ —
Job 42:5 I had heard about you with my ears, but now my eye sees you;
Job 42:6 therefore I detest [myself] and repent in dust and ashes.”
Job 42:7 After Adonai had spoken these words to Iyov, Adonai said to Elifaz the Teimani, “My anger is blazing against you and your two friends, because, unlike my servant Iyov, you have not spoken rightly about me.
Job 42:8 So now, get yourselves seven young bulls and seven rams, go to my servant Iyov, and offer up for yourselves a burnt offering. My servant Iyov will pray for you — because him I will accept — so that I won’t punish you as your boorishness deserves; because you have not spoken rightly about me, as my servant Iyov has.”
Job 42:9 So Elifaz the Teimani, Bildad the Shuchi and Tzofar the Na`amati went and did what Adonai had ordered them to do, and Adonai accepted Iyov[‘s prayer].
Job 42:10 When Iyov prayed for his friends, Adonai restored his fortunes; Adonai gave Iyov twice as much as he had had before.
Job 42:11 Then all his brothers and sisters came to him, also all who had known him before, and they ate a meal with him in his house. They consoled and comforted him for all the evils Adonai had inflicted on him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and a gold ring.
Job 42:12 Adonai blessed Iyov’s later situation even more than his earlier one — he had 14,000 sheep, 6,000 camels, 1,000 pairs of oxen and 1,000 female donkeys.
Job 42:13 He also had seven sons and three daughters.
Job 42:14 The first he named Y’mimah; the second, K’tzi`ah; and the third, Keren-Hapukh.
