1 Corinthians 13:1-3

New King James Version (NKJV)

The Greatest Gift

13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of ‘angels’ [mal’ak(-im): messenger(s), prophet(s), etc..], but have not ‘love’ [racham: compassion, mercy, etc..], I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all ‘faith’ [emuwnah: set office, truth, etc..], so that I could remove ‘mountains’ [in Biblical context: pagan worshipp(ing), see more..], but have not ‘love’ [racham: compassion, mercy, etc..], I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body [a]to be burned, but have not ‘love’ [racham: compassion, mercy, etc..], it profits me nothing.”

Compassion and Mercy, may it be so in us, in YH’shua’s example, Amein.

‘High Places’:

Numbers 33:52

New King James Version (NKJV)

52 then you shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, destroy all their engraved stones, destroy all their molded images, and demolish all their [a]‘high places’ [false religion, pagan worship, etc..];

Leviticus 26:30

New King James Version (NKJV)

30 I will destroy your ‘high places’ [false religion, pagan worship, etc..], cut down your incense altars, and cast your carcasses on the lifeless forms of your idols; and My soul shall abhor you.

Micah 1:3

New King James Version (NKJV)

3 For behold, the Lord’ [YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] is coming out of ‘His’ [ha-Ga’al: the-Redeemer’s, the-Deliver(-er’s), etc..] place;
‘He’ [ha-‘Iysh: the-Steward, the-Worthy, etc..] will come down
And tread on the ‘high places’ [false religion, pagan worship, etc..] of the earth.

Other Definitions:

“YHWH: “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”,[3] an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h),[4] with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14[ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh), “I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”[5](in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).[6][7][8]
