ALEPH  TAV STUDY

 

PSALM 119 – STUDY OF ALEF TAV

 

(Psa 119:1)  א (Alef) How happy are those whose way of life is blameless, who live by the Torah of Adonai!

Psa 119:2  How happy are those who observe his instruction, who seek him wholeheartedly!

Psa 119:3  They do nothing wrong but live by his ways.

Psa 119:4  You laid down your precepts for us to observe with care.

Psa 119:5  May my ways be steady in observing your laws.

Psa 119:6  Then I will not be put to shame, since I will have fixed my sight on all your mitzvot.

Psa 119:7  I thank you with a sincere heart as I learn your righteous rulings.

Psa 119:8  I will observe your laws; don't completely abandon me! CJB

 

Psa 119:1  ALEPH. Happy are they that are upright in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

Psa 119:2  Happy are they that keep His testimonies, that seek Him with the whole heart.

Psa 119:3  Yea, they do no unrighteousness; they walk in His ways.

Psa 119:4  Thou hast ordained Thy precepts, that we should observe them diligently.

Psa 119:5  Oh that my ways were directed to observe Thy statutes!

Psa 119:6  Then should I not be ashamed, when I have regard unto all Thy commandments.

Psa 119:7  I will give thanks unto Thee with uprightness of heart, when I learn Thy righteous ordinances.

Psa 119:8  I will observe Thy statutes; O forsake me not utterly.  JPS

 

(Psa 119:169)  ת (Tav) Let my cry come before you, Adonai; in keeping with your word, give me understanding.

Psa 119:170  Let my prayer come before you; in keeping with your promise, rescue me.

Psa 119:171  Let my lips speak praise, because you teach me your laws.

Psa 119:172  Let my tongue sing of your promise, because all your mitzvot are righteous.

Psa 119:173  Let your hand be ready to help me, because I choose your precepts.

Psa 119:174  I long for your deliverance, Adonai; and your Torah is my delight.

Psa 119:175  Let me live, and I will praise you; let your rulings help me.

Psa 119:176  I strayed like a lost sheep; seek out your servant; for I do not forget your mitzvot. CJB

 

Psa 119:169  TAV. Let my cry come near before Thee, O LORD; give me understanding according to Thy word.

Psa 119:170  Let my supplication come before Thee; deliver me according to Thy word.

Psa 119:171  Let my lips utter praise: because Thou teachest me Thy statutes.

Psa 119:172  Let my tongue sing of Thy word; for all Thy commandments are righteousness.

Psa 119:173  Let Thy hand be ready to help me; for I have chosen Thy precepts.

Psa 119:174  I have longed for Thy salvation, O LORD; and Thy law is my delight.

Psa 119:175  Let my soul live, and it shall praise Thee; and let Thine ordinances help me.

Psa 119:176  I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek Thy servant; for I have not forgotten Thy commandments.  JPS

 

 

The Hebrew word “ET” is found in various places in Psalm 119. However, it is not found in either the Tav section or the Aleph section, specifically Psalms 119:169-176 or 119:1-8.

 

(Psa 119:12)  Blessed art Thou, O LORD; teach me Thy statutes.

 

 

(Psa 119:26)  I told of my ways, and Thou didst answer me; teach me Thy statutes.

 

 

(Psa 119:33)  HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of Thy statutes; and I will keep it at every step.

 

 

(Psa 119:64)  The earth, O LORD, is full of Thy mercy; teach me Thy statutes.

 

 

(Psa 119:68)  Thou art good, and doest good; teach me Thy statutes.

 

 

(Psa 119:124)  Deal with Thy servant according unto Thy mercy, and teach me Thy statutes.

 

 

(Psa 119:135)  Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant; and teach me Thy statutes.

Psa 119:135 פניך האר בעבדך ולמדני את־חקיך ׃

(Psa 119:171)  Let my lips utter praise: because Thou teachest me Thy statutes.

 

Although Psalm 171 and 135 have very similar words about God’s statutes, the use of the “ET” in verse 135 does not follow in verse 171. We cannot draw the conclusion that Messiah’s signature, even presence is always there when it comes to the teaching of God’s Word.

 

 

The two Hebrew letters, Aleph and the Tav, also pronounced “et” are seen thousands of times in the Hebrew Scriptures. Some recently have claimed that this is the signature of Y’shua and should be substituted every time we see that word in the Tanakh. The “et” is noted in the Strong’s Concordance number 853 in the Hebrew portion. It is generally not translated but on rare occasion. The Hebrew men of wisdom have labeled this word as used to point to the object of the word prior to the “et” , used to clarify the object of the previous action. For example, in the first chapter of Genesis, we see the “et”  used thirteen times, apparently to point most specifically God’s many creations during that period of time.

 

Gen 1:1  בראשׁית7225  ברא1254  אלהים430  את853  השׁמים8064  ואת853  הארץ׃776  

               B’rei-sheet     bara        Elohim         et    Hashamayim   v’et         Haaretz

                       

            In the beginning  created    God                   the heaven    and        the earth.

 

Footnote: In the word v’et, the word “and” is usually written using the letter “v”. The “et” has no other meaning.  From the viewpoint of certain Messianic scholars, the “et” is to note the signature of Y’shua thereby making the sentence read as follows:

      In the beginning, created God Y’shua the Heavens and Y’shua the earth. This reminds us of John’s words, All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:3 KJV)

Although this is very uncomfortable for some, especially for followers of Y’shua who heard him say, “ For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. (Matthew 5:18 KJV) Fulfilling the Torah was and is and will be Messiah’s purpose as stated above. While there is still some of the Tanakh to be fulfilled, all of Y’shua’s accomplishments up to this time stand as evidence of his intentions to complete the fulfillment upon his return.

 

I have yet to draw any final conclusions due to the complexity of this issue requiring both prayer and fasting. There are enough witnesses for both sides of this new revelation that it is best to continue our search for the Truth that only the Gospel of Jesus Christ can divulge. I have provided a list of additional verses in Genesis Chapter One to assist you in performing your own search of this initial chapter of the Pentateuch.

 

Psalm 119:133  Order my footsteps by Thy word; and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.  I added this verse because of its importance to this writer; not relating to the “ET” issue.

 

Expect more on this important new information. Your prayers are coveted as we look for more to be uncovered by the Holy One, Blessed Be He.

 

Yours, Rabstor Brown

ALEF-TAV 2

 

 

John 1:1-2 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.KJV

John 1:15  Yochanan (the Immerser) witnessed concerning him when he cried out, "This is the man I was talking about when I said, 'The one coming after me has come to rank ahead of me, because he existed before me.' " CJB

John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. KJV

John 17:5  Now, Father, glorify me alongside yourself. Give me the same glory I had with you before the world existed. CJB Otherwise how could his signature (If you believe the report of Y’shua being with his Abba before the world existed. Otherwise the signature or presence of Y’shua that was added into the Holy Scriptures couldn’t possibly be a recognition of his pre-existence. This is confirmed by the words of John the Baptizer and John the Revelator.

 

 

(John5:39)  You keep examining the Tanakh because you think that in it you have eternal life. Those very Scriptures bear witness to me, CJB

John 5:39  Search2045 the3588 Scriptures;1124 for3754 in1722 them846 ye5210 think1380 ye have2192eternal166 life:2222 and2532 they1565 are1526 they which testify3140 of4012 me.1700

 

John 5:40  And2532 ye will2309 not3756 come2064 to4314 me,3165 that2443 ye might have2192 life.2222 KJV w/Strongs  This statement of Y’shua confirms Y’shua’s faith in his being part of the Scriptures, not just being mentioned (of his being the Messiah) but his actual presence being footnoted in some way with that of his Father. 3140 in the Greek Strongs gives an indication that he testifies for himself as being there from the beginning.  The t”a represents by their position in the Hebrew alphabet, the beginning and the end.  Is it too much of a stretch to substitute the Name of Y’shua for “beginning and the end, the first and the last, the Alpha and Omega (the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet)?“””””””

 

 

(Revelation 1:8)  "I am the 'Alpha and the 'Omega,' " says Adonai, God of heaven's armies, the One who is, who was and who is coming.

 

(Revelation 3:14)  And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; KJV (Y’shua says) “The ruler of God’s creation” CJB

 

(Revelation 21:6)  And he said to me, "It is done! I am the 'Alpha' and the 'Omega,' the Beginning and the End. To anyone who is thirsty I myself will give water free of charge from the Fountain of Life. (Mayim Chayim-added)

 

(Revelation 22:12-13)  "Pay attention!" [says Yeshua,] "I am coming soon, and my rewards are with me to give to each person according to what he has done. 13 I am the 'Alpha' and the 'Omega,' the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." (ALL THREE MEAN THE SAME) Then he is the Aleph and the Tav as well.

 

(Rev 22:16)  "I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.

CJB

 

(Rev 1:17)  When I saw him, I fell down at his feet like a dead man. He placed his right hand upon me and said, "Don't be afraid! I am the First and the Last,

 

(Rev 2:8)  "To the angel of the Messianic Community in Smyrna, write: 'Here is the message from the First and the Last, who died and came alive again:
