The Universal Law of Hebrew: He

The law of He

*He (pronounced hey) is the fifth letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet.

He in ancient Hebrew looks like a image of a man with his hands raised. A three pronged fork will give you the idea, with the prong in the middle being the head between both arms.

In modern Hebrew, he means behold. But, this meaning of this letter doesn’t do it justice.

Let’s look a little deeper into the man with his arms raised (He).

The fifth commandment is:

Honor your father and mother, that your days may be long in the land that the lord has given you (Exodus 20:12).

The ten commandments were not listed by number, but they were listed by the ten (debar) words—which are the letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet. In other words, aleph—the first letter—goes with the first commandment, bet with the second and so on.

The law and meaning of this letter (He) is honor. A man with his hands raised is a picture of honor. You can even connect the word behold to honor.


When the (He) was added to the names of Abram and Sara to make it Abraham and Sarah made them honorable as patriarch and matriarch of faith.

But what is more interesting is that a person cannot give honor by force. A person can’t tell someone to honor them and “bam” it’s done.

Let me introduce you to the concept of wholistic thinking. Everything written in the scriptures comes from wholistic thought.

Every child has a root. The root of a child is the father. Every child has a trunk, the trunk of a child is the mother. It is the father and mother’s connection with a child that makes the child capable of honor.

Also, if there is a bad connection between father/root and mother/trunk, the child cannot find honor. Wholistic erases the idea of responsibility we hold today, because it says that honor is a response to healthy relationship and dishonor is a response to unhealthy relationships. If a man doesn’t honor his head/YAH, he will not find honor in what he produces.

If a man has no other god before him, he honors God. If he honors God, he commands his offspring to honor him. If he is distracted by other interests (gods) his offspring will be distracted from honoring him.

Wholistic places the fifth commandment on whether or not man honors/beholds only YAH as the root.

33 HE. Teach me, O LORD, the way of thy statutes; and I shall keep it unto the end.
34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
35. Make me to go in the path of thy commandments; for therein do I delight.
36 Incline my heart unto thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
37 Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity; and quicken thou me in thy way.
38 Stablish thy word unto thy servant, who is devoted to thy fear.
39 Turn away my reproach which I fear: for thy judgments are good.
40 Behold, I have longed after thy precepts: quicken me in thy righteousness.

Psalm 119:33-40

Can you see a man focused on his father in these verses—hanging on his every word and instruction?

That is a picture of honor. The man wants to understand that he may become as his father is!

(He) the law of honor!

The Universal Law of Hebrew: Dalet

Dalet is the fourth letter of the Hebrew Aleph-bet and a picture of a door.

YAH is very interesting! I want to remind you that Hebrew is the language of behavior and that all other languages evolve from movement of behavior.
Let’s see if that is true.

The Law/Behavior of Daleth, a door (ד)

Looking at the image on the right, if you can picture that being a door, not just a door but an open door. A door that is always open. Abba/father is a open door.

The word grace–which is an action, a behavior of YAH, is depicted in this letter. Forgiveness can also be found in this letter.

This door is unlike any door, it is a law.

It is specifically the door to replenishment, restoration and revitalization to all living things–most importantly to human beings. This open door means invitation and hospitality to health and wholeness.

After our blood in our bodies enters the lungs and goes through the last purification process, it is equipped with life-giving oxygen and is then sent to the main part of the heart. From the heart the blood is dispersed through arteries to the various designations to give life/oxygen to those places. After giving off life, our blood is laden with waste. Going back to the organ system through veins to be replenished, restored, revitalized, refurbished, rejuvenated, to give life again.

What I just shared is the description of that open door.

To prove the authority of this letter, I submit to you the forth commandment.

8 Remember the Sabbath day, to set it apart.

Exodus 20:8

Now, see if it coincides with these verses.

25 DALETH. My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken thou me according to thy word.
26 I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me: teach me thy statutes.
27 Make me to understand the way of thy precepts: so shall I talk of thy wondrous works.
28 My soul melteth for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
29 Remove from me the way of lying: and grant me thy law graciously.
30 I have chosen the way of truth: thy judgments have I laid before me.
31 I have stuck unto thy testimonies: O LORD, put me not to shame.
32 I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.

Psalm 119:25-32

The description I gave of our blood and how going through the organ system to be replenished and that door to enter into a relationship with something that chastises you to bring about righteousness–that door is the love for all living and an invitation to true Shabbat/Shalom (rest and peace).
