Today’s Old Testament chronological reading is in Genesis 25 and 26.
The Psalms/ Proverbs reading is in Psalm 34.
The New Testament reading is in Matthew 24.
If I am able to post new notes from today’s reading, they will be here.
Hebrew root word parables.
“And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed; because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.” Gen 26:4-5
TO MULTIPLY Strong’s H7235 רבה rabah;
TO GIVE Strong’s H5414 נתן nathan;
TO BE BLESSED Strong’s H1288 ברך barak;
TO OBEY Strong’s H8085 שמע shama;
TO KEEP Strong’s H8104 שמר shamar;
CHARGE Strong’s H4931 משמרת mishmereth, an abstract concept meaning “charge, obligation;” from Strong’s H4929 משמר mishmar, a concrete object meaning “prison house;” from Strong’s H8104 שמר shamar, the primitive root, above.
COMMANDMENT Strong’s H4687 מצוה mitsvah;
STATUTE Strong’s H2708 חקה chuqqah, an abstract concept meaning, “that which is established;” from Strong’s H2706 חק choq, a concrete object meaning, “statute;” from Strong’s H2710 חקק chaqaq, a primitive root meaning, “to engrave.” The 3-letter root is chet + quph + quph.
chet ח = the wall, thus outside, divide, half;
quph ק = the sun on the horizon, thus condense, circle, time;
quph ק = the sun on the horizon, thus condense, circle, time.
The story: A wall (chet), which is a boundary established to define and limit someone’s action; the boundary which is established from the rising of the sun (quph) to its going down (quph) – an idiom for time immemorial – is permanently engraved in stone. The implication is that YHVH’s statutes are permanent, set, eternal.
