“14 May‘the Lord‘ (YHWH:theName,Word and Works, of Elohim)give you increase more and more, You and your children.15 May you be blessed by‘the Lord‘ (YHWH:theName,Word and Works, of Elohim), Who made heaven and earth.”
King Solomon started strong in the Word and Works of Elohiym – but ended how?
Without a doubt he would say, “completely aware of the truths given by YHWH Elohim as truth!”, that which he incrementally comes to know in disobedience to same, something that began shortly after having been crowned, decisions that lead him away from the Wisdom of the ages into darkness: One of many kings that court the ways of the world. And again, a warning to those who think they have it all under control!
2 Chronicles 8:16
New King James Version (NKJV)
“16 Now all the work of Solomon was well-ordered from[a] the day of the foundation of the house of the ‘Lord’ (YHWH: the Name, Word and Works, of Elohiym) until it was finished. So the house of the ‘Lord’ (YHWH: the Name, Word and Works, of Elohiym) was completed.”
“13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear ‘God’ (Elohiym:the Magistrates, Great, Mighty Ones, etc..)and keep‘His’ (Ga’al: the Avenger(‘s), the Deliver(‘s), etc..)commandments, For this is man’s all.”
Words from a very rich king nearing the end of his life – who shares that regardless the riches there can be no greater need than the word and works (commandments) of the Elohiym of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob; a lesson hard learned by the King of Judah that we may avoid.
