The law of Tet
Tet in ancient Hebrew is a picture of a type of container made of wicker or clay.
The 9th marriage vow (9th commandment).
“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”
Remember, the command is in the letter Tet and not in the directive “You shall not”. “You shall not…” is the response to the letter.
What does it mean by false witness?
Does it simply mean do not lie…against your neighbor? What does a container have to do with false witness? Why did it specify neighbor? Isn’t lying wrong period?
Let’s start with the last question.
A neighbor in scripture means, a person who is in a relationship with another person. When YAH made Adam and separated/divided them, they became neighbors. Neighbor implies intimate relationship.
If “You shall not…” is specifically to the neighbor then it places the context of false witness beyond lying.
The positive behavior of Tet is the behavior of one who carries the weight of failure of the weaker vessel (wife, friend, neighbor).
It is a behavior or characteristic of YAH. Have you ever read in the scriptures about Yah (God) repenting? What that means is that he returned from or turned away from his anger because he recognized the weakness of his creation. That is the behavior of Tet .
The scripture mentions to dwell with the wife according to knowledge, honour her as unto a weaker vessel…that your prayers/sacrifices are not hindered. That is Tet.
The picture in that scripture places the husband as the root of the tree and his prayer is what he is sacrificing (the fulfillment of beauty) for the tree. If the husband is so bitter against the wife because of her lack, he tears down his own house.
Tet is considerate of the limitations/weakness of his family in time of failure. It does not blame or place fault on the weaker—it takes the blame. That is YAH. That is Yeshua. Tet!
Adam was in great violation of the law of Tet when he blamed his wife. His wife therefore was in violation when she blamed the serpent. Both acted as if they were victimized starting from Adam.
YAH places no blame for the weakness of man on man, rather he is angered when his love and behavior is not reciprocated by man to man!
65 TETH. Thou hast dealt well with thy servant, O LORD, according unto thy word.Psalms 119
66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.
68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
69 The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart.
70 Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in thy law.
71 It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.
72 The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
You have dealt with me O Lord according to Tet.
Judgment is the result of command. Knowledge is the result of understanding.
YAH is understanding.
Adam went astray before he was afflicted = weakness of man, and , I have kept my word is the result of Tet.
Adam’s/Your affliction prescribed by YAH was not/is not a punishment. It is to teach us the boundaries/statutes of YAH that we be Tet as he is Tet.
The law of Tet!
