The Universal Law of Hebrew: Kaph

The Law of Kaph

Kaph is the 11th letter of the Hebrew alephbet. The numerical value is 20.

Kaph in ancient Hebrew is a picture of the palm of a hand.

As stated in one of the previous letters that I have written about, the first ten Hebrew letters go under the heading/title of wisdom. The next ten letters 11 through 20 go under the heading of understanding. Kaph, the eleventh letter, gives a picture of the beginning of understanding.

All/each of the Hebrew letters represent the laws of marriage.

They are broken up in three groups, the first ten are the espousal period (courtship and marriage). The next ten is the stage of marriage where a couple is developing understanding of one another, and the last two letters are knowing one another of which implies act.

Notice from the 11th letter to the last letter that there are no judgments like the “thou shalt not.” The first 10 have it, thus signifying understanding.

Proverbs 4:7
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”

81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word.
82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?
83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.
84 How many are the days of thy servant? When wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?
85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law.
86All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me.
87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.
88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.

Psalm 119:81-88

When reading these verses, it sounds like a person is going through some tough experiences and uncomfortable places. “Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, when will you comfort me” sounds like they are in misery.

How could that be coming from the letter Kaph?

Kaph represents the palm of YAH, meaning chastisement. YAH chastises through life’s experiences. Understanding only comes by challenging experiences. Kaph is the maturing and developmental hand of YAH.

Yeshua is the saving Kaph/palm of Yah. After a person matures/understands then comes deliverance.

After deliverance comes comfort.

“For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget your statutes…”

Either way, bottle in the smoke or smoke in the bottle, one can feel consumed by their challenges. But, knowing that there is a limit(statute)—a goal in which the experience is to bring one to—becomes the focal point.

How many are the days of thy servant?
When will you execute on them that persecute me judgment?

The word persecute here is implying to persuade. In other words, someone is trying to persuade another person to take a easier route or get out of the situation they are in by taking a shortcut.

The word judgment here implies justice meaning correction—not stated in a vengeful way.

The person going through the challenge is not complaining here, he is looking forward to the end of the chastisement so the persuaders would be shamed by the positive results that come from challenge.

All the way to the last verse under the letter Kaph, the person maintains a balanced view—trusting in Kaph. The person asks for support, not as a victim, but as a desire to overcome. At the end, he is empowered through the experience and is now capable of upholding the testimonies of Kaph.

Job’s experience was the experience of Kaph. We are all called to maturity as Job. At the end of the story of Job, he became a blessing to all of the people in the east. That is how he maintained the testimony of Kaph.

Yeshua took his followers/through the experience of Kaph, “take up your cross and follow me.” That is the only way to be empowered.

Law of Kaph is the law of maturity from wisdom to understanding.

The law of Kaph!

The Universal Law of Hebrew: Gimel

Gimel is the third Hebrew letter. Ancient Hebrew is a pictorial language. Gimel may be a picture of a Camal in Ancient Hebrew.

Gimel, like all of the Hebrew letters is a law.

The law of Gimel

Let’s consider.

The outside meaning of Gimel is giving–not in the context of sharing or of a simple donation. The nature of a camel has a high ability to withstand high levels of heat without water while being of service. This type of giving is giving under duress.

This type of giving is much like a mother giving birth to a child: the innate nature to reproduce life, to contribute to the cause of growth, to sustain a name. Interestingly enough, the pain a woman goes through to give life is enough pain to cause a woman to never want to go through that again. But she is given a Gimel spirit–a law that drives her to forget or lessens the memory for the sake of contributing to love and continuation of life.

A camel can endure agony for the sake of continuation of life.

God in the spirit of Gimel will endure with conditions of people and Gimel/give to reproduce health.

17 GIMEL. Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may live, and keep thy word.
18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
19 I am a stranger in the earth: hide not thy commandments from me.
20 My soul breaketh for the longing that it hath unto thy judgments at all times.
21 Thou hast rebuked the proud that are cursed, which do err from thy commandments.
22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies.
23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes.
24 Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors.

Psalm 119: 17-24

GIMEL is for life and healing!

The Universal Law of Hebrew: Bet

Bet, in ancient Hebrew is a picture of a house or tent.


Bet is the second Hebrew letter of the alephbet.

The second commandment reads:

Bet: You will not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

What does a bet (house) have to do with not making any graven images (idols)?
What are graven images? Are they just a replica of something?

We shall see!

15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Joshua 24:15

Joshua (Yehoshua) said; As for me and my Bayit (house) we will serve the Lord.

Bare with me here as I mix things up a little.
Let’s go to another verse.

5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God

Philippians 2:5-6

What does this scripture mean by “thought it not robbery to be equal with God?

I am aware that the verse I shared is in part. Perhaps the answer to my question is in the proceeding verses.

The meaning of robbery here is equivalent to evil. Joshua 24:15 read, “And if it seems evil unto you to serve the Lord…”

If this verse were to be expressed in Hebrew it would sound something like this:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not evil to be subject with God.’

Subjection in Hebrew thought is a picture of being equal.

You will see why in my next illustration.

🔺️ Triangle
One man decides that if he could get ten men to give him a million dollars he then would be willing to give one hundred thousand dollars to each of the men in appreciation for their service. The ten men think in order to give this man one million dollars I need to get one hundred men to give me over one hundred thousand dollars and I will give them ten thousand dollars in appreciation for their service. One hundred men think I need to get one thousand men to give me over ten ten thousand dollars and I will give them one thousand dollars in appreciation for their services, and so on it goes all of the way down to a penny.

🔻Inverted Triangle

One man thinks, “I must give all that I have to 12 men and in return they must give all that they have free of charge to 24 men and in return 24 men must give all that they have free of charge to 48 men,“–and so on it goes till the house is full of life and health.

Joshua said “As for me and my house, we will serve as the one who gives free of charge, and he didn’t think it robbery to be humble as God.

BET is a house.

Abraham was the aleph of faith (the ox of faith) the father, strong leader of faith. What he is known for is how he used his faith in hospitality to others.

Bet is not just a house–it is a hospital and from which comes the word hospitality.

If one man charges (oppresses) for what he gives he will cause other men to replicate the same image as he is. If one man think that YAH is evil, unfair, he will charge other men to live. GRAVEN IMAGE!

There are two types of houses (hospitals)–one charges for repair and maintenance and the other house gives freely for all services.

The house of charge patches people together and cause a continuation of servitude under dilution of health,. Eventually the server will give out–never to be repaired or replenished. The house of giving is eternal as its source of life is forever replenishing or repairing.

We go to school to learn to be doctors, psychologist, teachers, and preachers. We are taught how to live within the house’s economic system. It works, but it cannot last–neither can it produce true repair or maintenance.

You cannot charge for what should be given freely! When the human body begins to tax itself disease is inevitable. All disease starts from a house that charges.

You cannot charge for healing!

Build the house and remove all sickness and disease! BUILD!

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

1 Corinthians 13: 1-3

What happens when a man gives from bondage?
What does he teach his house?

You will not make any graven image…

The law of BET!!

The Law of Bet Part 2

As explained in the law of Bet part 1, Bet is a picture of a tent or house. More importantly, the context of the law of Bet is intimate and means the inner workings of a healthy home.

Side note: if a person has a good grasp of the Hebrew letters, they will be able to see the context of everything that is written in the latter (New Testament) scriptures.

I explained that to give context to my starting point in part 2.

1 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3

The context of these verses come from the subject and law of BET.

Verse 1. The hollowness of our words if we have not charity

Vs 2. The value of my abilities and drive without charity don’t nor won’t validate my worth or value.

Vs 3. What good is a sacrificial life without charity? Answer: nothing!

What is charity?

The Greek word agape vs the Hebrew word Tzedakah

Agape (translated charity): affection, good will, love, benevolence, brotherly love

Tzedakah (translated righteousness/charity): is sacrificial service based on the need of others for replenishment or repair, for the purpose of continuation of the quality of life and the reproduction there of. (My description)

Internet description

Tzedakah is the Hebrew word for philanthropy and charity. It is a form of social justice in which donors benefit from giving as much or more than the recipients. So much more than a financial transaction, tzedakah builds trusting relationships and includes contributions of time, effort, and insight.

Charity is value that comes from being valued. Charity only comes from hospitality. Charity comes from a house (Bet) that replenishes and repairs.

1st Corinthians 13 is coming from no man can have charity and live in a house of debt. That charity can only come from receiving and knowing what has been freely given to a person. All other charities, that charge for rent and give from those proceeds profit nothing and they are an graven image of things in the heavens, earth, and of things in the deep.

The story of the good Samaritan comes from the law of Bet.

The law of Bet, a home for replenishment, revitalization, reconstruction, healing and repair–without charge or taxation!

Parables and the Torah, An Introduction

Many of us have become those with no ear to hear. The Church (or those who so claim) is sick because she is disconnected from the Way (Torah) that the Way (Yeshua) taught of.

Have you heard the account of Joseph? In case you haven’t: Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers after he’d revealed he’d had a dreamed that he would one day rule over them. This account can be found in the book of Bereshit (Genesis) chapters 37-50. This is a very popular account taught on a many of occasions. It provides encouragement as ministers extract principles and lessons from Joseph’s experience. “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” “Your setback may be a setup for victory!” “What the devil meant for evil, God means for your good.” “He makes all things work together!” The list goes on.

Another perspective people tend to take when reading Joseph’s story is a very “me-centered” perspective. “Sometimes, you can’t tell everybody your dreams.” “Some of y’all got some haters acting like they’re your friend.” The emphasis quickly becomes Joseph or ‘us’ reading the story. Every other person becomes an extra in the story of Joseph. If we read Scripture this way, we will always walk away with a partial understanding or none at all.

Joseph’s story has little to do with dreams or personal victories. Joseph, like others read about in the Bible, is a small piece in the major scope of Scripture. No one’s story is ever just about them. To some extent, I think we know that — in a very general sense. However, I don’t think we know that within its proper context.

If we continue reading Joseph’s story, we find that his experiences positioned him to help all of Israel. Additionally, he was able to reconcile and be one with his brothers again (which nullifies the me-centered, hater sort of perspective). See, every account, parable, and ‘character’ will always relate back to the grand picture of YAH’s relationship with Israel.

We have to begin reading all of Scripture in this light. Let me demonstrate the importance of this.

Preachers know that Yeshua (name Aramaic and Hebrew people called the Messiah) used parables to deliver deeper truths to the people listening and will use this approach to illustrate ideas they’ve extracted from a text.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with using illustrations to help people understand the deeper truths.

However, it quickly becomes an issue when the message, Scripture, and illustrations are filtered through our culture that is already counter-Scripture. I came across a post on Facebook once that shows the juxtaposition of Hebrew thought and Western (Greco-Roman) thought. Here are a few examples:

  • Man-centered universe (W) vs. God/tribe/family-centered universe (H)
  • Freedom orientation (W) vs. Security orientation (H)
  • Life analyzed in precise categories (W) vs. Everything blurs into everything else (H)
  • Rugged Individualism (W) vs. Importance of being part of group (H)
  • Worth of person based on money/material possessions/power (W) vs. Worth derived from family relationships (H)

My desire in writing these blogs about the Torah is to strike curiosity in your mind about Scripture. This is enough to bring someone closer to truth. I walked very devotedly in Christianity for 20+ years of my life. So, I know the ins and outs of the objections of some of the things I may present via my blog. This is to say, I understand. My blogs are never to shame readers who may still consider themselves Christians. Instead, it is to challenge your perspective and encourage you toward deeper truths. For something is only as strong as it is challenged.

Some will say knowing the culture of the Hebrew people is unnecessary. “We’re not meant to be Jews.”

First, we need a better understanding of the concept of culture, especially as it relates to Scripture. Mostly, we understand culture to be the traditions, foods, music, holidays a group of people hold to. While we can certainly identify those things in Hebrew culture, what we observe of Israel and their interaction with YAH recorded in Scripture is not simply “their culture” — especially not in the same way we understand culture today.

So, what’s the difference?

The Torah (first five books of the Bible) contains a way of life. Even more — it is THE WAY of life. It is literally how life/nature operates. It reveals the character and nature of YAH. Hebrew culture is built on, recorded, and encompassed in the Torah.

When Yeshua said, “I am THE WAY, the Truth, and the Life,” He was making Himself equivalent to the Torah. He was saying I am the Torah — the written ideas of YAH — made flesh

“Aleph Blessed are the perfect in the way, Who walk in the Torah of יהוה (Ps. 119:1)!”

“Your righteousness is righteousness forever, and Your Torah is truth (Ps. 119:142).”

“For the command is a lamp, and the Torah a light, and reproofs of discipline a way of life (Prov. 6:23).”

Many of us have heard the verse, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).” Many of us have been taught the Bible is the Word of God. But, Scripture says that Yeshua is the Word. But, what is the Word?

In the Greek, the word for ‘Word’ is logos. Logos means ‘divine utterance’ or ‘expressed idea.’

We’ve been taught it means Yeshua is the ‘’expressed idea God had.’’ This is true, but incomplete. What is Yeshua the expressed idea of? What idea did God have? The Torah! So, to understand Him apart from the Torah, within the context of our culture, is to barely understand Him at all.

So, how can we expect to understand what He taught if we are unwilling to study the very ideas from which He taught? 

Second, the culture we are engulfed in today is a syncretism of various ideologies that make YAH pluralistic, dualistic, and watered down. A lot of the traditions — if not most — observed in Christianity are due to a mixing. They have been observed due to many concessions and manipulations made by the early church (when it linked with Rome’s government) in order to “tame” the pagans of their time. (Read more about it here: So, the very theology many of us defend was not originally ours to begin with.

The messages many of us extract from Scripture is counter-Torah or are incomplete applications of Scripture.

When Yeshua told parables, they were always directly related to the Torah. It created a picture that derived from the foundation. If those that heard were not truly connected to the foundation, the root, then “they did not have ears to hear.”

Many of us have become those with no ear to hear. This is not really our fault. We’ve passed down information gained by those with a genuine desire to know YAH and commune with Him. Regardless, the problem in Christianity is we’ve assumed there is little relevance to what Yeshua taught (Torah) because “it was just their culture.” Nah. It wasn’t just culture as we understand it — it was the way of life! Their whole culture is built on the Torah. The Torah is the foundation of Hebrew thought.

Problematically, the Church has divorced itself from anything Hebrew and has lost proper interpretation and foundation of Scripture. How do you know?

  • Unless we learn the Torah, we will read the account of the woman caught in adultery and think its central message was about not judging or the grace of God. 
  • Unless you learn Torah, you will read about the Pharisees and think that Messiah’s opposition to them was because He was doing away with “the Law.” 
  • Unless we learn Torah, we will read Joseph’s ascent into governmental authority and think the story is about accomplishing your dreams.
  • Unless you learn Torah, you will continue to think that Messiah did away with the Torah rather than the law. (There is a distinction; ‘under the law’ doesn’t mean what you may think it means).

It is time for us to truly understand and apply Scripture. 

Many have found themselves drawn to study the whole Bible without knowing why. Many have felt the need to start over. There is a reason for this. YAH is providing foundation for His people. YAH is providing healing for His people. Healing will come from a proper application of Torah. Guaranteed. 

The Church (or those who so claim) is sick because she is disconnected from the Way (Torah) that the Way (Yeshua) taught of. As long as we keep applying society’s idea of religion to our lives and study of Scripture, we will never walk in the fullness of intimate communion with Him.

That is all.

Be sensible. Be fools.

Over and out.
