The Universal Law of Hebrew: Het

The Law of Het

Het in ancient Hebrew is a picture of a tent wall.

Het is the 8th letter in the Hebrew aleph-bet and has powerful meaning.

The 8th commandment is: You shall not steal.

While studying this letter, I came to an amazing realization. The commandments, as we call them, are marriage vows. That’s right! It is the part where the preacher says to the man and woman to repeat after him.

“Will you please repeat this vow to (Bride), saying after me: I (Groom), take you (Bride), to be my wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health. I promise to love and cherish you.”

The marriage vows of the commandments are far more detailed and much more enriching.

Why would stealing even be mentioned as a part of a wedding vow? What does a tent wall have to do with stealing?

It would read, “Het, you shall not steal.

The letter Het is masculine when used as a command. The (judgment) “You shall not steal” is to be the result of the command which makes it feminine.
We understand that stealing is to forcibly take something that doesn’t belong to you without permission or awareness from the owner.

Het, a tent wall in a relationship, is a commitment (in this case from the man) not to cross certain boundaries without amiable agreement.

Het is also a type of hedge in relationship.

YAH had a hedge around Job.

YAH was going to destroy an unfruitful tree. Yeshua said to YAH for them to place a hedge around it to give time and opportunity. Both of these stories come from the letter Het.

This places a deeper context on the word steal.

Het: I will not force anyone to serve me (steal).

Het: I will not force anyone to honor me (steal).

Het: I will not require respect from a wife or children on the merit of I’m the head. (steal).

HET: I will place a statute, a wall, (limitation) between me and you as a hedge around you and our relationship that we may become one.


57 CHETH. Thou art my portion, O LORD: I have said that I would keep thy words.
58 I intreated thy favour with my whole heart: be merciful unto me according to thy word.
59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.
60 I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
61 The bands of the wicked have robbed me: but I have not forgotten thy law.
62 At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments.
63 I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.
64 The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.

Psalms 119:57-64

Can you see the portion as being a Het?

Favor rather than force?

Turning my feet unto his testimonies (promises) is a result of a hedge.

Making haste = amiable agreement.

The command of HET.
