Colossians 3:12

International Standard Version (ISV)

12 Therefore, as ‘God’s’ [ha-‘Elohiyms’: the-Magistrates’, the-Angels’ (ha-malik: the-messengers of ‘elohiym), etc..] chosen ones, ‘holy’ [kadosh: consecrated, dedicated, etc..] and ‘loved’ [chemda: precious, goodly, etc..], clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness,[a] and patience”

The calling? to be perfect! ‘Yes we can’, says YHWH, ‘in Heaven – on Earth’ 🙂


Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

G-d: 430 ‘elohiym el-o-heem’ plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great[ones], judges, X mighty[ones].

Angel: מֲלְאָךְ mălʼâk, mal-awk’; from an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger; specifically, of ‘God’ [‘Elohiym], i.e. an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher):—ambassador, angel, king, messenger.

Holy: 6944 qodesh ko’-desh from 6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstract, sanctity:–consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, (X most) holy (X day, portion, thing), saint, sanctuary.

Love(d): חֶמְדָּה chemdâh, khem-daw’; feminine of H2531; delight:—desire, goodly, pleasant, precious.


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”.
