For this is the Ahavah Elohim

  1. 1. Zekeniam Y’Isra’EL Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconciliation) by whom we have now received the ( Atonement) reconciliation of the Dvar HaRitztzuy Let this day be a day of reconciliation and regeneration [“EHYEH ASHER EHYEH”]( HaYaH (He was), Howeh (He is), and Yihyeh (He will be). I AM My Memorial for generation after generation.” Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE:
  2. 2. "And YHWH said to mosheh , I am that which I am. [ehyeh asher ehyeh] and he said, so you will say to the sons of Y’isra’EL, "I am [ehyeh] has sent me to you." and YHWH said further to mosheh, now you are to say to the sons of Y’isra’EL, "YHWH, elohey of your fathers Abraham, Yitzchak [Isaac], and Yaa’qob [Jacob], has sent me to you. this is myname forever, and this is my memorial for generation to generation." "Shemoth 6:3," andI appeared to Abraham, to Yitzchak, and to Yaa’qob as hashadday [the almighty]. and my name, YHWH, was not well known (famous) to them. YHWH, ELohey Tsebaoth, is his name. The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. Yahu(ah)shua Ok what part of the above do you not understand, the truth is written right before your eyes, will you still deny it still In plain truth it reads 1 Yochanan 5:3
  3. 3. For this is the love for Elohim, that we guard His commands, and His commands are not heavy, It saddens me most when even when the truth is right before their eyes are blinded By this we know that we love the children of YHWH (Yahuah), when we love YHWH (Yahuah) and keep His commandments. For this is the love of YHWH (Yahuah), that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. 1 Yochanan 1:6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and halak in darkness, we lie, and do not the emet: To say you love YHWH (Yahuah), yet walks in a lifestyle of conscious disobedience is likethe believer who says they walk in fellowship with YHWH (Yahuah), yet walks in darkness You are liar Your love for YHWH (Yahuah) will show itself in your obedience. "Believers frequently attempt to turn love for YHWH (Yahuah) into a mushy emotional experience. His commandments are not burdensome when we see how wise and good the commandmentsof YHWH (Yahuah) are. They are gifts from Him to show us the best and most fulfilling life possible. YHWH (Yahuah)s commands are like the "manufactures handbook" for life; Hetells us what to do because He knows how we work best. YHWH (Yahuah)s commands are not given to bind or to pain us, or because YHWH (Yahuah) is like an irritated old man. It’s because He loves usGenuine love for YHWH will result in obedience to His commandments. This love expresses itself in action, not just emotion, and here is the stumbling block that many fall over Devarim 31:26 Take this sefer ha torah, and put it in the side of the aron ha Brit of YHWH (‫)יהוה‬ Eloheichem, that it may be there for a witness against thee. The congregation itself was meant to be YHWHs witness, so in a way the scroll was a witness against the witness, if they should depart from this calling. But if we keep theTorah, it can be a witness for us instead. Can people look at our lives and say, "Oh, so thats what it means!"? YHWH listed the names of the men who wept when they compared themselves to the Torah when they rediscovered it Nekhemyah 8 Is your name listed as one who upholds it? Like the Sabbath, the Ark is a sign of the covenant. With the Torah beside it, the theme of the Two Witnesses that runs throughout Scripture shows up here again.
  4. 4. Exodus 25:16 And you shall put into the Ark the Testimony which I will give you. Specifies that the testimony should be put inside the Ark of the Covenant when Moshewould receive it. He himself built another chest out of only wood, without the gold, possibly to hold only the stone slabs with the Ten Declarations on them.The Ark of the Covenant (Hebrew: ‫ ָארֹון הָבְּ ִרית‬Ārōn Hāb’rīt, modern pron. Aron Habrit), also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a chest described in Book of Shemot 25:10-22"And they shall make an Ark of shitim (Acacia) atzei (wood); two and a half cubits shall be its length, a cubit and a half its width, and a cubit and a half its height. This is the "Ark of the Covenant". It parallels the Sabbath in that it is a sign of the covenantbetween YHWH and Y’Isra’EL. The word "chest" (aron) itself, in Hebrew, comes from a rootword meaning "to pluck or gather". They would not have had large planks with them in the wilderness. And acacia trees themselves are mostly made up of many small twigs; there is little ready-made "lumber" in them. Many tiny pieces have to be joined together to make itwork as such, paralleling YehezqEl 37s picture of the two houses of Israel being regathered like two "sticks" that become one. Sticks are not to be gathered on the Sabbath (a picture of the millennial kingdom), but beforehand. Num. 15:32ff And while the benai Yisrael were in the wilderness, they found a man that gathered sticks upon Yom Shabbat.A cubit is approximately 18 to 21 inches long (the standardized measure of the length from a mans elbow to fingertips). Note that none of these measures is in whole numbers, and the Hasidic rabbis explain this to mean that no matter how well we learn the Torah, there is always another piece to learn; only when we become what this ark represents will it truly be complete. Shemot 25:11And you shall overlay it with pure gold, inside and out you shall overlay it, and shall make on it a molding of gold all around. Inside and out: Though very few people would ever see inside this box, it must still be thesame as the outside. If the outside tells you it is pure, the inside must agree, or it is nothing but "whitewashed tombs" or cups that are only cleaned on the outside. Matt. 23:25-28Woe unto you, Sofrim and Prushim, tzeviut (hypocrisy)!for you make clean the outside ofthe cup and of the dish, but within they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. [You] blind Parush, first cleanse the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may be clean also.Woe unto you,
  5. 5. Sofrim and Prushim, tzeviut (hypocrisy)!for ye are like unto whited tombs, which on theoutside appear beautiful, but within full of dead [mens] bones, and of all uncleanness. Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of tzeviut (hypocrisy) and lawlessly against the Torah.A pig is deceptive because on the outside it appears kosher (it has a split hoof) but inwardly it does not chew the cud, which is a picture of "meditating day and night" on YHWHs words Tehillim 1 Happy is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked nor stands in the way ofsinners, nor sits in the seat of the scoffers, But his delight is in the Torah of YEHOVAH; andin His Torah he meditates day and night. And he shall be like a *tree planted by the *rivers of *water, that brings forth it’s *fruit in its season; his *leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper. The wicked are not so: but are like the chaff which thewind drives away. Therefore the wicked shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in thecongregation of the righteous. For YEHOVAH knows the way of the righteous: but the way of the wicked shall perish. Amein and ameien sifting them, refining the nutrition that is gotten from them. The pig, instead, eats anythingindiscriminately and cannot filter any of it--a bad example which we do not want to make a part of ourselves. But purity goes beyond the Torahs direct physical commands (asimportant as they are) to the heart of the matter, as Yahu(ah)shua said--loving YHWH andneighbor. So it is up to us to understand the deeper meanings so we can make the inside and outside truly match. If we are selfless inside the house, we will lay the necessary groundwork for Yahu(ah)shuas Kingdom to come, and then the outside world will line up with it; they will have no choice. Tehillim 2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potters vessel.The true Kingdom cannot be faked; that would be an unworthy vessel for His testimony. If we find that we are pretending to be pure when we really are not, be thankful for therevelation so we can deal with it and go back and actually make the inside right, however much rebuilding it may take. Shemot 25:12 You shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in its four corners; two rings shall be on one side, and two rings on the other side. Intervals: Aramaic, "on its four joints", but the word is the same as for "rhythmic beats".They may correspond with Yaakov’s four firstborn sons, since the firstborn is counted as thefirst of a woman ("who opens the womb"), not a man. Two "sticks" (cf. YchezqEl/Ezek. 37)
  6. 6. were needed to keep its balance; neither Yehudah nor Efrayim can carry the covenant alone. Shemot 25:13-15And you shall make poles of shitim (Acacia) atzei (wood), and overlay them with gold.You shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the Ark, that the Ark may be carried by them. The poles shall be in the rings of the Ark; they shall not be taken from it. The poles poked against the curtain dividing the two sanctuaries, providing evidence that the Ark was still inside. 1 Kings 8:8And they drew out the staves, that the ends of the staves were seen out in the Kodesh before the debir (oracle), and they were not seen without: and there they are unto this day. They were not simply to transport it; they protected the ones carrying it from death. Thus they are a picture of Yahu(ah)shua--human (of wood) yet pure (overlaid with gold)--whosaves us from YHWHs wrath; they are also a picture of our "abiding in him" so that we can continue to bear fruit. If the ark had always been carried on poles as YHWH said, therewould never have been an occasion where it nearly fell off a cart, leading to the death of the one who illegally touched it with the best intentions of steadying it. 2 Shmuel 6:6-7And when they came to Nakhons threshingfloor, Uzzah put forth [his hand] to the Aron ha Elohim (‫ ,)אלהים‬and took hold of it; for the oxen shook [it]. And the anger of YHWH (‫)יהוה‬was kindled against Uzzah; and Elohim (‫ )אלהים‬smote him there for [his] error; and there he died by the Aron ha Elohim (‫.)אלהים‬ Shemot 25:16 And you shall put into the Ark the Testimony which I will give you. Testimony: or witness. The box was not decorated for its own sake. It is to hold and to highlight the Testimony. Testimony to what? The real covenant that could not be put into the box, for the writing only bears witness to what we have agreed to do. Our actions are what constitute the covenant. If we are not obeying, we have no covenant, even if it is "written on our hearts" or tattooed on our arms! Later would be added Aharons almond rod that budded (symbolizing authority and Yahu(ah)shua, the firstfruits of the resurrection) and an omer of manna (symbolizing Y’Isra’ELs life as a whole community).These are YHWHs treasures, so this ark is His treasure-chest. If it does not have these three things, the box is a useless, empty shell, 1 Cor. 13 Shemot 25:17 (ii)
  7. 7. "You shall make a Kaporet (Mercy Seat) of pure gold; two and a half cubits shall be its length and a cubit and a half its width.Cover: place of atonement; LXX, "propitiatory". Sometimes called the "mercy-seat", it was the place where the blood from the chosen goat on the Day of Atonement was brought by the High Priest--the only time he could enter the direct manifest presence of YHWH and survive, because he was doing so for the whole community. Even though the commandments were inside, and it was overlaid with gold to symbolize purity, still this picture of a salvaged human being had to be atoned for in order for full fellowship with YHWH to be restored. Shemot 25:18 And you shall make two Keruvim of gold; of hammered work you shall make them at the two ends of the Kaporet (Mercy Seat).Khruvim: or cherubim, a special class of "Messengers" (spiritual beings) that have a special connection with guarding something that is Sacred. (They are not mentioned until after Adam and Chavvahs sin made it necessary for the Tree of Life to be guarded from them and their progeny.) The popular image of "cherubs" as pudgy babies with wings is a gross diminishing of the terror they must have aroused with their flaming swords, but there is some truth to it: rabbinic writings say they had childlike faces to symbolize innocence.There is great depth to this picture. The Talmud says they were meant to symbolize YHWH in face-to-face fellowship with His bride. This covenant is indeed meant to be like a marriage, and the depiction is of one piece with the "atoning cover", emphasizing that the covering is inextricably connected to the covenant and to the relationship between YHWH and Israel, the other party to the covenant, which is indeed meant to bear His fruit in the earth. Heylel (Lucifer) was once called "the anointed khruv that covers". YehezqEl 28:14 Thou [art] the anointed cheruv that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the kodesh har (mountain) Elohim (‫ ;)אלהים‬thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. But as Ruths nearer kinsman was unwilling to jeopardize his inheritance by redeeming those who represented both faithful Yehudah as well as the wayward northern kingdom,haSatans fall was in being unwilling to humble himself. Yahu(ah)shua, "instead of the joyset before him endured the Tree, despising the shame" and was in turn exalted more highly than ever before and made "Head over all things". We can only imagine how jealous haSatan is to see another "bride" replacing "him". (Compare his description in Yhezqel/Ezekiel 28:12-16Ben Adam, take up a lamentation upon the melekh Tzor, and say unto him,Thus saithEloahi (‫ )אדני‬YHWH (‫:)יהוה‬Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect inbeauty.Thou hast been in Eden the garden of Elohim (‫ ;)אלהים‬every precious stone [was]
  8. 8. thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, thesapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and ofthy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. Thou [art] the anointedcheruv that covereth; and I have set thee [so]: thou wast upon the kodesh har (mountain)Elohim (‫ ;)אלהים‬thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. Thou [wast]perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. Bythe multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thouhast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of Elohim (‫ :)אלהים‬andI will destroy thee, O covering cheruv, from the midst of the stones of fire. with the city-bride portrayed in Rev. 21:9-20; And there came unto me one of the seven malakhim which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lambs wife.And he carried me away in the Ruakh to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the set apart Yerushalayim, descending out of Shamayim fromElohim (‫ ,)אלהים‬Having the Kavod Elohim (‫ :)אלהים‬and her light [was] like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, [and] had Shneym Asar shearim (gates), and at the shearim (gates) Shneym Asar malakhim, and names written thereon, which are [the names] of the Shneym Asar Shivtei ha beneiYisrael: On the east three shearim (gates); on the north three shearim (gates); on the south three shearim (gates); and on the west three shearim (gates).And the wall of the city had Shneym Asar foundations, and in them the names of the Shneym Asar Shlichim of the Lamb. And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the shearim(gates) thereof, and the wall thereof. And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, Shneym Asar thousand furlongs.The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred [and] forty [and] four cubits, [according to] the measure of a man, that is, ofthe malakh. And the building of the wall of it was [of] jasper: and the city [was] pure zahav, like unto clear glass. And the foundations of the wall of the city [were] garnished with all manner of precious stones The first foundation [was] jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald; The fifth, sardonyx.the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst. Yeshayahu/Isa. 61:10.)I will greatly rejoice in YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬my nefesh shall be joyful in Elohai; for he hath clothed me with the Bigdei Yesha (garments of salvation), he hath covered me with the robe of tzedakah, as a bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels. This explains why ""he" was so eager to trip up humanity which was made in YHWHsimage. That image was indeed shattered; mystical Judaism speaks of it in terms of moltengold bursting its mold and being scattered all over creation. But YHWH initiated its repair when He created the people of Y’Isra’EL
  9. 9. , through which the "second Adam" could be born. Yahu(ah)shua is the Head of this "one new man" which is being gathered from the seed of Avraham scattered all over the worldand any who adhere to them. It rests upon the covenant which includes Torah, the rod, andmanna--all pictures of Yahu(ah)shua. These khruvim were connected together and formed one piece. Ephesians 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another. says the many parts of the Body--also called the "Tree of Life" in mystical Judaism--are "members of one another". The tree of life is what the first-mentioned khruvim Gen. 3 guarded. This is a reminder that while we are not innocent anymore, when we become sacred enough to be one of the guardians of this reunited Adam, we will be allowed in again; in YHWH’s kingdom we will again have access to the Tree of Life, as per Rev. 22. So the "place of atonement" between these khruvim (v. 22) is a prophetic picture of the restoration of Adam and Chavvah, the rejoining of YHWH and His bride, and a return tothe Garden. He sets them here as a reminder of what kind of people He wants us to become- -the kind of people He can dwell among, for His deepest desire is simply to be able to walk with Adam again in the Garden. But He must make us fit to be able to stand His presence, and that is what the boxs contents are about. As in the mystical tree, the Kingdom is theway back in--the "place" at which the mirror image of Eden (culminating at Yerushalayim) connects to the real Eden above. Hammered: LXX, "graven", yet even if that is the case, these graven images were specifically commissioned by YHWH as a picture by which He wanted to show something about Himself, not a figment of mens imagination. Like the khruvim woven into the curtains that hid it, this image was seen by only those who should know enough to not carry it in the wrong direction. Shemot 25:19 Make one Keruv at one end, and the other Keruv at the other end; you shall make the Keruvim at the two ends of it of one piece with the Kaporet (Mercy Seat). Shemot 25:20 And the Keruvim shall stretch out their wings above, covering the Kaporet (Mercy Seat)with their wings, and they shall face one another; the faces of the Keruvim shall be toward the Kaporet (Mercy Seat). Wings: symbols of concealment, covering, and deliverance from danger. Sheltering: Aramaic, "overshadowing". Each look toward the other: literally, "man toward itsbrother". The atonement is directly tied to looking into one anothers faces and becoming a
  10. 10. community. "If one cannot love his brother, whom he has seen, how can he love YHWH, whom he has not seen?" 1 Yochanan 4:20 If a man say, I love Elohim, and hateth his achi, he is a liar: for he that love not his achi whom he hath seen, how can he love Elohim whom he hath not seen? Wings: not necessarily like those of a bird (though Yeshayahu 6 seems to imply this when we see khruvim in action there); the term really means anything that is "projected laterally" or the extremity (as used of garments in many passages, such as Numbers 15:38 Speak unto the benai Yisrael, and bid them that they make them tzitzit in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the tzitzit of the borders a cord (thread twist ‫ )ּפתיל‬of blue: Deut. 22:12Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest [thyself]. It is also the same term as the "skirt" Ruth asked Boaz to spread over her to symbolize histaking her in marriage as part of being kinsman-redeemeer for her husband who had died childless. Ruth 3:9 And he said, Who [art] thou? And she answered, I [am] Rut thine handmaid: spread therefore thy skirt over thine handmaid; for thou [art] a near Goel. So, in context, this may simply mean they are spreading out a garment to serve as a wedding canopy over themselves. Shemot 25:21 You shall put the Kaporet (Mercy Seat) on top of the Ark, and in the Ark you shall put the Testimony that I will give you. Shemot 25:22 And there I will meet with you, and I will speak with you from above the Kaporet (Mercy Seat), from between the two Keruvim which are on the Ark of the Testimony, about everything which I will give you in commandment to the Benai Yisrael. Meet: the term can mean to summon, but can also mean to betroth! Two cannot walk together unless they are agreed
  11. 11. Amos 3:3, Can two walk together, except they be agreed? in which the term "agreed is the same one used here). The ideal Y’Isra’EL represented bythis intertwining of YHWH with His bride (as described in the Talmud) is a reparation forwhat haSatan did, just as Esther replaced Queen Vashti. The ark is to be set behind curtainsas if in a bridal chamber. It defines how close He wants Israel to come to Him. We are even told that one day we will no longer look for the Ark of the Covenant Yirmeyahu/Jer. 3:16ff And it shall come to pass, when ye be multiplied and parah (increased; fruitful) in ha ertez,in those days, declares YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬lo yomer (say) Aod (anymore) Aron Brit YHWH (‫:)יהוה‬ neither shall it come to mind: neither shall they remember it; neither shall they visit [it]; neither shall [that] be done any more. this is because we will by then BE what it represents! as solely containing the Tablets of Stone on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed. According to some traditional interpretations of the Book of Exodus Shemot 16:33 And Mosheh said unto Aharon:Take a pot, and put an omer full of manna therein, and lay it up before YHWH (‫ ,)יהוה‬to be kept for your generations. Containeror pot : Hirsch, "a cooling-flask", perhaps of stone, to keep the damaging heat away from it during its long-term storage. An omers worth: literally, "the fullness of anomer". Posterity: literally, "generations". Will some of it be needed again during the time no one is able to buy or sell if they do not have the mark of the beast? (Rev. 13) Yahu(ah)shua said he would give some of the "hidden manna" to the one who overcomes--that is, endures until that time. (Rev. 2:17) Shemot 16:34As YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬commanded Mosheh, so Aharon laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept. Moshe probably appended this (and the next verse) just before he died, as the ark was not yet built at this time. While some say they know where the ark of the covenant is, Yirmeyahu 3:16 tells us it will one day no longer be brought to mind. If we get the point and live out the intent behind it, it really does not matter if we still have the physical reminder or not. We will already be that omer.
  12. 12. Bamidbar 17:10 (17:25) And YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬said unto Mosheh:Bring Aharons rod again before the edut, to be kept for a token against the rebels; and thou shalt quite take away their telunnah (murmurings) from me, that they die not. YHWH was tired of killing Israelites. Now if someone grumbled, all Moshe would have to do was bring out Aharon’s rod as a reminder of his authority and ask if they really wanted to argue with the sign YHWH had given. When their fruit surpassed Aharon’s, they might have something worth saying! Until it did, if they did not stay quiet, they would feel therod! This was not so much to commemorate the miracle as to preclude further deaths of the same sort as Qorakh’s. They might be “sons of rebellion” (and some might specifically besons of the rebel himself, for they would be reminded of this rod when they went to cover the ark, as this was their responsibility – 3:30-31; 4:4-6), but they could survive if they did not give expression to what was latent within them. But they could not just walk in there and see it; this place was off limits to most. But this also gave it more appeal and made it more powerful in a way, because it was not a common thing they saw every day and would take for granted. It was more “mystical”. Yet each new generation that did not see this event still had to understand authority and proper order so that they would not again fall into chaos, so this underlines the responsibility of teaching the next generaration that it is thereand what it is about. Our ruler is so fully identified with Torah that he was even called "the Torah fleshed out". Yochanan 1:14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His Kavod, the Kavod as of the only begotten of Ha AVI,) full of Chesed and Emet. He identified himself with the manna. Yoch. 6:31 And Yeshua (‫ )ישוע‬said unto them I am the lechem of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst. His blossoming will stop the murmuring against Torah that is still prevalent, and the dry stick of Efrayaim can grow together into the stick of Yehudah. Yhezqel 37:16ff This can only occur if it is alive again. We, too, are meant to bring forth edible fruit fromwhat seemed long since dead. Our lives are meant to be a witness against the rebellious, not witnesses to the lawless one. 17:11 (17:26) And Mosheh did [so]: as YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬commanded him, so did he. So as: or, precisely when. Ivrim 9:4
  13. 13. Which had the golden censer, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid roundabout with gold, wherein [was] the golden pot that had manna, and Aharons rod that budded, and Luchot haBrit (the tablets of the Covenant) the Ark also contained Aarons rod ,a jar of manna and the first Torah scroll as written by Moses Zachor et-yom haShabat lekadsho. Remember the shabbat day, to keep it SacredRemember: recall, recognize, or make mention of it--because it is nothing new at this point; it has been around since creation (and verse 11 makes this connection overtly). . "because in six days YHWH set in order the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but He desisted on the seventh day. On account of this YHWH blessed the seventh day and set it apart [as holy]. This assumes we keep track of which day it is. But if we look around today, it is to see how easy it is for even very religious people to forget. A parallel passage, Deut. 5:12, Shomer the Yom Shabbat to sanctify it, as YHWH (‫ )יהוה‬Eloheicha hath commanded thee.says "observe" ("guard") where this one says "remember", for to guard we must remember. The term for "guard" essentially means to fence off--i.e., look for ways to ensure that you stay away from your own pursuits. Meeting together helps us keep those things off our minds. We should make a point of doing as many things as possible differently on the Sabbath so that nothing on it is ordinary or mundane. This is the one commandment YHWH repeated after all the words Moshe brought down from the mountain Exodus 31:13-17Speak you also to the Benai Yisrael, saying.Truly My Shabbat you shall keep: for it [is] asign between Me and you throughout your generations; that [ye] may know that ANI
  14. 14. YEHOVAH (‫ )יהוה‬that who sanctify you. You shall keep the Shabbat, therefore, for it is setapart to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does anywork on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.Six days may work be done;but in the seventh [is] the Shabbat of rest, kadosh to YEHOVAH (‫ :)יהוה‬whosoever does[any] work in Yom ha Shabbat, he shall surely be put to deathWherefore the Benai Yisraelshall keep the Shabbat, to observe the Shabbat throughout their generations, [for] aperpetual Berit. It [is] a sign between Me and the Benai Yisrael forever: for [in] six daysYHWH (‫ )יהוה‬made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested, and was refreshed.probably because He knew it would be the one most frequently susceptible to mis-obedienceby otherwise-righteous people. (It does not just say "one day in seven", but specifically the seventh day of the week.) But keeping it in mind also requires a concrete participation asacknowledgment of its spiritual reality. The tense of "remember" here extends indefinitely beyond merely the day itself (S.R. Hirsch), since in a sense all days were created for the purpose of having a Sabbath rest. The liturgy for the end of the Sabbath blesses YHWH who, as He created a distinction between the Sabbath and the ordinary days, has also distinguished between light and darkness, and between Israel and the rest of the nations, since it is not to be a nation just like all the others. Set-apart: in a category of its own.
