MAN IN WHITE GIVING SCROLLS

Psalm 119:88

New International Reader’s Version (NIRV)

88 Keep me ‘alive’ [chayah’: nourish(-ed), (opposite of dead: (chedel – of the dead /of the world) alive, not of the world, etc..], ‘because of’ [owdowth: on acount of, concerning, etc..] your ‘faith(ful)’ [’emuwnah: steady, truth, etc..] ‘love’ [racham: compassion, great-mercy, etc.]. Do this so that I may obey the covenant laws you have given.”

Choose life – in the ways of YHWH.


Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Alive: 2421 chayah khaw-yaw’ a primitive root (Compare 2331, 2421); to live, whether literally or figuratively; causatively, to revive:–keep (leave, make) alive, X certainly, give (promise) life, (let, suffer to) live, nourish[-ed] up, preserve (alive), quicken, recover, repair, restore (to life), revive, (X God) save (alive, life, lives), X surely, be whole.

Because of: אוֹדוֹתʼ ôwdôwth, o-doth’; or (shortened) אֹדוֹת ʼôdôwth (only thus in the plural); from the same as H181; turnings (i.e. occasions); (adverb) on account of:—(be-) cause, concerning, sake.

Dead: 2309 chedel kheh’-del from 2308; rest, i.e. the state of the dead:–world.

Faith[-ful]: 530 ’emuwnah em-oo-naw’); or (shortened) >emunah {em-oo-naw’ feminine of 529; literally firmness; figuratively security; moral(-ly) fidelity:–faith(-ful, -ly, -ness, (man)), set office, stability, steady, truly, truth, verily.

Love:7356 racham rakh’-am from 7355; compassion (in the plural); by extension, the womb (as cherishing the fetus); by implication, a maiden:– bowels, compassion, damsel, tender love, (great, tender) mercy [merciful], pity, womb.


Significance of the Creator’s Name:

YHWH (YH): “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, YHWH] 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]

THE NAME THAT ‘EXPRESSES’ (IS) THE WORD AND WORKS OF ISRAEL’S ‘ELOHIYM:

“I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE”.
