“Be still before YHVH and wait patiently for him; fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way, over the man who carries out evil devices!”
Damam – Be still – This word, when taken back to ancient Hebrew, is almost disturbing. The concept of flowing blood and the color red are closely connected to this word. Why? Because when an animal’s red blood is shed, it becomes still and silent. I immediately think of the concept of dying to self.
Khool – Wait patiently – Okay, this word really threw me. When you go back to the ancient Hebrew, the idea of waiting patiently doesn’t exist. Rather you find first the idea of drilling a hole, then piercing, then pain and sickness, then twisting and dancing (like the drill.) Then it occurred to me that we might be experiencing pain, sickness, an unsettled, whirling spirit. At that moment we are to wait.
Kha rah – Fret – This word means to burn, even to the point of anger.
Tsalach – Prosper – This word means to move forward or advance.
Ra a – Evil – to remove the function or purpose of an object or person.
Now, here’s this verse in my own words. It may look a bit different.
Nicely done sister!
Shabbat Shalom, p
Oh, indescribably beautiful is the word of Elohim. When you really get down to it, that is exactly what it means. I can look back and see exactly that. Amazing. I am so blessed by these word studies! Todah =) Blessed be the Name of YHWH!!!!
Shabbat Shalom =)
Shabbat Shalom, ladies! My mom pointed out to me that the hebrew word for evil, Ra a, sounds alot like the Egyptian god, Ra. Hebrew is an amazing language.
