Daily Tidbits 12/15/11 – HalleluYah

The word HalleluYah is used 27 times (23 times in the TaNaKH and 4 times in the New Testament) in the Bible corresponding to the 27 bones in the human hand, mentioned earlier this week. The literal meaning of praise is to raise up the hands.

The Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible pg 8-9

It is interesting to note that in sign language, the way one says ‘hallelujah’ is very similar to this ancient Hebrew concept.

In sign language the flat hands come together, then circle around and change to X hands and then back again to flat hands raised in the air.

This is the end result:

This is the formation of the letter ה ‘heh.’

The Hebrew word ‘HalleluYah’, which is said to be the only word that is translated the same in every language, comes from the following root:

The pictograph meaning of praise means to look toward the North Star as mentioned above.

The constellation Cepheus (the enthroned king) is located directly above the North star in the night sky.

CEPHUS. The king. In the Zodiac of Denderah Pe—ku—hor = this one cometh to rule. Cepheus is Greek from the Hebrew zemah = the Branch. Ethiopian name, Hyh = a king. The brightest star is Al Deramin = coming quickly. The next is Al Phirk = the Redeemer. The next, Al Rai’ = who bruises or breaks. (Jeremiah 31:1) {Gospel in the Stars – E.W. Bullinger}

What constellations are located beneath Cepheus?  Ursa Major and Ursa Minor which represent the two sheepfolds of the Good Shepherd.

Joh 10:14  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by the ones that are Mine.
Joh 10:15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.

Again, the Hebrew word HalleluYah is from הלל ‘halal’ which is pictographically displayed by a man with two outstretched arms, holding the shepherd’s staff or it could be said the Shepherd with outstretched arms.

As Hallelujah is said to be the only word that man speaks that is the same in every language, it is only appropriate to share that the Shepherd with outstretched arms is what gathers and unifies mankind through the love of the Father.

There are multiple words in Hebrew for love, all linking back to the bosom.  The most common is אהב ‘ahav’ which has the meaning of a gift and the expressions and actions of one towards the family.  The pictograph meaning displays the gift of the Father to mankind of His only begotten Son.  Again linking the bosom, the family and the crucifixion.

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 15:13  Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends.

From the root:

The Pictograph meaning of Love

The first and last letters spell out the word for Father (אב ‘ab’) and the middle letter is a picture of a man with outstretched arms.  The Love of the Father is revealed through the Messiah on the tree, gathering all mankind back to their Creator.
