YH'shua in synagogue

Matthew 5:43-45

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall ‘love’ [(yes) racham (kiy): (have) compassion (for), (have) great mercy (for), etc..] your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I say to you, ‘love’ [(yes) racham (kiy): (have) compassion (for), (have) great mercy (for), etc..] your enemies and ‘pray’ [siyach: meditate, declare, etc..]  for those who persecute you, 45 so that you may prove yourselves to be sons of your ‘Father’ [Ab: Principal, Chief, etc..] who is in heaven; for ‘He’ [ha-‘Iysh: the-Steward, the-Worthy, etc..] causes ‘His’ [ha-Ga’al: the-Redeem(-er[‘s]), the-Deliver[-er’s], etc..] sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

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, pity, womb.

Have: יֵשׁ yêsh, yaysh; perhaps from an unused root meaning to stand out, or exist;  substance, it (there) was, (there) were, ye will, thou wilt, wouldest.

For: 3588 kiy kee a primitive particle (the full form of the prepositional prefix) indicating causal relations of all kinds, antecedent or consequent; (by implication) very widely used as a relative conjunction or adverb (as below); often largely modified by other particles annexed:–and, + (forasmuch, inasmuch, where-)as, assured(-ly), + but, certainly, doubtless, + else, even, + except, for, how, (because, in, so, than) that, + nevertheless, now, rightly, seeing, since, surely, then, therefore, + (al- )though, + till, truly, + until, when, whether, while, whom, yea, yet.

Pray: 7878 siyach see’-akh a primitive root; to ponder, i.e. (by implication) converse (with oneself, and hence, aloud) or (transitively) utter:– commune, complain, declare, meditate, muse, pray, speak, talk (with).

He: 376 ‘iysh eesh contracted for 582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation):–also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, (foot-, husband-)man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man(-kind), + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso(-ever), worthy. Compare 802.

His: 1350 ga’al gaw-al’ a primitive root, to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), i.e. to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relative’s property, marry his widow, etc.):–X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver[-er’s], (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er[‘s]), revenger.

Father: 1 ‘ab awb a primitive word; father, in a literal and immediate, or figurative and remote application):–chief, (fore-)father(-less), X patrimony, principal. Compare names in “Abi-“.


Significance of the Steward’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”.
