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: Yud

The Law of Yud

Yud in ancient Hebrew is a picture of an arm with a hand.

The meaning of Yud has to do with the work that the hand does—like making things, creating things, shaping or forming things, etc.

Yud is the 10th letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet. After the 10th letter of the aleph-bet, the number system changes to multiple of ten. For example, the 11th letter in the Greco-Roman system would not be 11, instead it changes to the number 20. The 12th letter is the number 30, the 13th is 40, up until the 20th letter which would be 100. Then, it changes to multiples of 100.

I shared this additional information because it gives some reason to why the commandments stop at the letter Yud and doesn’t continue to the next letter.

All of the letters are commands and are equally powerful. In maturity, the number 10 signifies coming to a certain stage of life or the foundation of life is set—from there life grows rapidly. The 22 number system reflects the three main stages of life (modern view example) young age, middle age, and old age.

The tenth commandment is, “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.”

What does Yud, an arm and hand have to do with coveting? Who is your neighbor?

The first person neighbor comes from when Yah divided Adam. Adam’s wife is considered his neighbor. If Adam would have remained whole he would not have a neighbor. This is indicative of marriage.

Simple form of the meaning of covet is, to greatly desire or wish to have, i.e. jealousy.

The simple form is a little lacking.

As the hand is used to shape clay into a vessel, it gives a picture of the use of Yud in the 10th commandment. It is YAH’s hands that are the potter. As clay is dependent on the potter, it is subject to whatever the potter does—it has no choice as to its outcome. After the potter is done and the clay has been shaped into what it is meant to be, it must be satisfied as to what it is. The clay cannot change itself. Whatever seemingly imperfections are forever a part of its character. If clay were to be able to see another shaped vessel and compare itself, it would be covetous.

If a man considers his neighbor’s house and he sees himself superior or inferior he covets his neighbor’s house. For example, if a man feels that the responsibility of being the bread winner for his home versus the responsibility given to the wife is an advantage or disadvantage, he is covetous.

Competing in the relationship = coveting

All of the examples of covetousness are a result of dissatisfaction in what the Yud/hand had created.

The way in which Adam’s neighbor Eve ate of the fruit and then gave to Adam to eat is the picture of covetousness, and both of them showed covetousness—Eve first, Adam second.

If the husband or the wife is not satisfied with what the Yud/strong hand of Yah/God has created, they will be destructive to each other which leads to defrauding.

1st Corinthians 7:5

Take time to read the first part.

Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.

The fruit of covetousness in a relationship is to defraud one another.
The fruit of when someone values what YAH has formed in them is intimacy!

73 YOD. Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.
74 They that fear thee will be glad when they see me; because I have hoped in thy word.
75 I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me.
76 Let, I pray thee, thy merciful kindness be for my comfort, according to thy word unto thy servant.
77 Let thy tender mercies come unto me, that I may live: for thy law is my delight.
78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.
79 Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.
80 Let my heart be sound in thy statutes; that I be not ashamed.

Psalm 119:73-80

These verses show how one sees themselves as the Yud has formed them to be.

The first verse is reflecting that the vessel is formed and now ready for the harding process. Understanding is covered in the next ten letters, starting with Yud.

Yud’s numerical value is 10. From the 10th letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet to the 20th letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet, they are in multiples of 10. So, it would go from 10 to 100.

The Universal Law of Hebrew: Tet

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.
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.

Psalms 119

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!
