Aleph Tav Alert: Y’Hoshua

Y’HOSHUA

(Joshua)

The Historical Books are Y’hoshua, Judges, Ruth, First Samuel, Second Samuel, First Kings, Second Kings, First Chronicles, Second Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther. The word Y’hoshua (Joshua) means Yah is Salvation. The Book of Y’hoshua does not explicitly name its author but Jewish traditions claim that Y’hoshua the son of Nun, the successor of Moses as leader over Israel, penned much of this book. The latter part of the book was written by at least one other person after the death of Y’hoshua and it is also possible that several sections were edited or compiled after Y’hoshua’s death as well. The Book of Y’hoshua was most likely written between 1400 and 1370 B.C.

Aleph/Tav את Used in Y’HOSHUA: אֶת et 0 times, אֶת־ et- 294 times, אֵת eet 20 times, אֶת־ Et- 5 times, אֵת Eet 1 time, אָתְּ aat 0 times, אַתְּ at 0 times, אַתְּ־ at- 0 times, = Total 320

Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Wa‘at וְאַתְּ 0 times, Wa‘eet וְאֵת 14 times, Wa‘et- וְאֶת־ 158 times = 172 Grand Total 492

Aleph/Tav ALERT: Most of what can be said about the placement of the Aleph/Tav את Symbol in the book of Y’hoshua is already found in the Torah sections. It is interesting to notice that the same rule applied for placing the את from Y’hoshua through Malachi as started by Moses in the Torah and is consistent all the way through. The את is still placed before peoples, persons, places and things, which relate to the covenants. In Y’hoshua 2:10 it speaks about the miracle at the Red Sea, which states, For we have heard את who dried up יהוה את water of the Red Sea before you…implying the working of the miracle of the Red Sea was by יהוה Father with and through את Y’shua (Yah-head). In Y’hoshua 3:9 Y’hoshua gathers the people together to hear instructions and states, And Y’hoshua said to the Children of Israel, come here and hear את the words of יהוה your Elohim…implying the words Y’hoshua is going to tell the people came from יהוה Father through את Y’shua to him by the Yah-head.

Question: Who dried up the waters of the Jordan? Y’hoshua 5:1 makes it clear, את who had dried up יהוה את waters of the Jordan before the Children of Israel…implying again, the TWO working together in ONE SPIRIT as ONE. Concerning the defeat of Jericho in Y’hoshua chapter 6:5-20 Y’hoshua gives instructions stating, when you hear את sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat and the fulfillment in 6:20 states and it came to pass, when hearing, the people את sound of the trumpet that the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat…implying את blew His trumpet first and the Israelites joined in and brought down the walls, which was nothing short of a miracle by the Yah-head. After the defeat of Jericho 6:27 states; So was יהוה את with Y’hoshua; and his fame was in all the land…implying both יהוה and את were with Y’hoshua. It is interesting to note that Y’hoshua 9:24 and 10:23 have six (6) Aleph/Tav את Symbols in each of those short sentences. In the last chapter of Y’hoshua 24:15 is that famous quote, but as for me and my house, we will serve את יהוה…implying we come before Father though His son Y’shua the Messiah. John 16:23 whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. 24…Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full. John 14:6 no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.

Aleph Tav Alert: Ruth

RUTH

(Rut)

The Book of Ruth does not specifically name its author but tradition is that the Prophet Samuel wrote the Book of Ruth. The name Ruth in Hebrew means friend or companion. The exact date in which the book was written is uncertain but the prevalent view is sometime between 1011 and 931 B.C. NOTE: Ruth’s name is used 12 times in the book and the first 10 times there is no Aleph/Tav את Symbol in front of her name but after she is redeemed by Boaz the next two times her name is used there is an Aleph/Tav את Symbol in from of her name both times.

Aleph/Tav Used in RUTH: אֶת et 0 times, אֶת־ et- 28 times, אֵת eet 7 times, אֶת־ Et- 0 times, אֵת Eet 0 time, אָתְּ aat 2 times, אַתְּ at 2 times, אַתְּ־ at- 0 times, = Total 39

Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Wa‘at וְאַתְּ 0 times, Wa‘eet וְאֵת 1 time, Wa‘et- וְאֶת־ 1 time = 1 Grand Total 40

Aleph/Tav ALERT: Ruth’s name only appears 12 times in the story and remarkably the את only appears before her name AFTER Boaz redeems her. The last two times are in verse 4:10 and 13. This is just another clear indication that the Aleph Tav את Symbol is a marker of the covenant יהוה Father made through את Y’shua because Ruth did not become a part of the linage of Y’shua until Boaz redeemed her. It is also very interesting to notice that in Ruth 2:19 when Ruth introduces Boaz to her mother-in-law in the first part of the scripture, Boaz’s name is replaced by an את which states, And she showed her mother-in-law אֵת with who she had brought and said, the man’s name with who I brought today is Boaz. The power of covenant!

Aleph Tav Alert: 1 Samuel

1 SAMUEL

(Shmuel Alef)

The author of 1 Samuel is anonymous. It is very possible that Samuel wrote part of this book but other possible contributors may have been the prophets/historians Nathan and Gad, (1 Chron 29:29). Originally, both 1 and 2 Samuel was one book but the translators of the Septuagint separated them and that separation has been retained ever since. The events of 1 Samuel span approximately 100 years, from approximately 1100 B.C. to 1000 B.C. The events of 2 Samuel cover another 40 years. The date of the actual writing would then be sometime after 960 B.C. First Samuel records the history of Israel in the land of Canaan as they move from the rule of judges to being a unified nation under kings and Samuel emerges as the last judge, who anointed the first two kings, Saul and David.

Aleph/Tav את Used in 1 SAMUEL: אֶת et 0 times, אֶת־ et- 362 times, אֵת eet 40 times, אֶת־ Et- 5 times, אֵת Eet 0 time, אָתְּ aat 1 time, אַתְּ at 0 times, אַתְּ־ at- 0 times, = Total 408

Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Wa‘at וְאַתְּ 1 time, Wa‘eet וְאֵת 17 times, Wa‘et- וְאֶת־ 65 times = 83 Grand Total 491

Aleph/Tav ALERT: The book begins with the story of how the birth of Samuel the prophet came about and in 1 Samuel 1:20 we notice את names the boy which states and she called את his name Samuel…which is not unusual, but in 1 Samuel 2:11 is the most unusual placement of את in any scripture in the Tanakh which states, And the child (Samuel) did minister to את יהוה את before Eli the priest…notice the את actually encloses on either side of יהוה Father’s Memorial Name…implying that Samuel actually ministers to את יהוה (Yah-head) and then through את Y’shua’s presence by the power of the Holy Spirit on him before Eli the priest. Samuel is a very special man and resembles Moses when it comes to the placement of את as in verse 1:25 which states and brought את the child to Eli. 1 Samuel 3:7 states, Now Samuel did not yet know את יהוה (Yah-head)…but just as with Abraham and Moses when the Yah-head calls out to Samuel, they say his name TWICE in 1 Samuel 3:10 which states, And יהוה came and stood and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel…implying it is both יהוה Father and את Y’shua together calling Samuel.

In 1 Samuel 2:12 states, Now the sons of Eli were evil men; they did not know את יהוה (Yah-head)…continuing in verse 2:17 states, for despised the men את offering of יהוה…as we have seen any offering represents את Y’shua presence and it is clear Eli’s sons despised את offering…and יהוה tells Samuel through את that He is going to judge Eli and his sons in 1 Samuel 3:18 which states, And told him (Eli), Samuel את every word and hid nothing from him. As יהוה directs in Chapter 9, Samuel will anoint את Saul the first king of Israel…as in 1 Samuel 9:27 Samuel speaks to Saul and states, but you stand still first, that I may announce to you את word of Elohim…and then Samuel anoints Saul with את oil. In 1 Samuel 12:24 states; Only fear את יהוה and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider את how great things He has done for you. After Saul sins Samuel confronts him in 1 Samuel 15:23 and states, Because you have rejected את word of יהוה, he has also rejected you from being king. Saul confesses to 1 Samuel in 15:24 I have sinned; for I have transgressed את commandment of יהוה.

Concerning the Yah-head, it is interesting to notice some comments Y’shua makes about the Holy Spirit, which encompasses the Yah-head and is actually both יהוה Father and את Y’shua together combined and is how they operate together as ONE in ONE SPIRIT (Eph 2:18) as Y’shua describes in John 14:23 If a man love Me, he will keep My words: and My Father will love him, and WE will come unto him, and make Our ABODE (dwelling) with him…taking this verse in context it is implying both יהוה Father and את Y’shua will come in the power of the Comforter (Holy Spirit) together and make their abode with the one who keeps their commandments (Torah). This is why Y’shua had to go away because the outpouring of the Holy Spirit could not take place until Y’shua was back at His throne beside Father as Y’shua explains in John 16:7 It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you…implying the protocol is from יהוה Father through the את Y’shua the Son for Y’shua has been given all authority from Father as He states in Matt 28:18 All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Y’shua explains in verse John 14:28 for My Father is GREATER than I…implying Y’shua came to accomplish Father’s will as He states in John 6:38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. This is the Yah-head יהוה Father and את Y’shua who speak many times TWICE as recorded in the Tanakh.

Aleph Tav Alert: 2 Samuel

2 SAMUEL

(Shmuel Bet)

The Book of 2 Samuel does not identify its author but it could not have been the Prophet Samuel, because he died in 1 Samuel. The possible writers are Nathan or Gad, (1 Chron 29:29). Originally, both 1 and 2 Samuel was one book but the translators of the Septuagint separated them. The events of 1 Samuel span approximately 100 years, from 1100 B.C. to 1000 B.C. The events of 2 Samuel cover another 40 years, which would place the date of writing sometime after 960 B.C. 2 Samuel is a record of King David’s reign.

Aleph/Tav את Used in 2 SAMUEL: אֶת et 0 times, אֶת־ et- 307 times, אֵת eet 30 times, אֶת־ Et- 2 times, אֵת Eet 0 time, אָתְּ aat 0 times, אַתְּ at 0 times, אַתְּ־ at- 0 times, = Total 339

Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Wa‘at וְאַתְּ 0 times, Wa‘eet וְאֵת 7 times, Wa‘et- וְאֶת־ 38 times = 45 Grand Total 384

Aleph/Tav ALERT: David questions the Amalekite that ended Saul’s life and ask him in 2 Samuel 1:14 why were you not afraid to put forth your hand to destroy את anointed of יהוה? The exact scripture is repeated in 2 Samuel 1:16 states, your blood will be upon your own head; for your mouth has testified against you, saying, I have slain את anointed of יהוה…implying clearly that Saul was Aleph/Tav’s anointed of יהוה Father as king of Israel and was an extension of את Y’shua before יהוה Father. 2 Samuel 3:10 states, and to set up את throne of David over Israel and over Judah…clearly implying that Y’shua set up His throne through David and this is confirmed in 2 Samuel 5:3 which states, and they anointed את David king over Israel. Concerning the building of a house for יהוה 2 Samuel 7:13 states, He will build a house for My name and I will establish את throne of his kingdom forever…implying the throne of David is an extension of the throne of את Y’shua.

Regarding the sin of David with Bath-sheban את Nathan confronts David in 2 Samuel 12:9 states, Why have you despised את commandment of יהוה…which resulted in judgment in Sam 12:14 states, because by this deed you have given great occasion to blaspheme to את enemies of יהוה…followed by 2 Samuel 12:15 And struck יהוה את the child that Uriah’s wife bare to David…which causes David to 2 Samuel 12:16 Therefore sought David את Elohim for the child…which leads to 2 Samuel 12:24 which states, And comforted David את Bath-sheba his wife and went in to her and lay with her: and she gave birth to a son and he called את his name Solomon. And יהוה loved him…Solomon is named by את. Through the placement of these Aleph/Tav את Symbols we clearly see the presence of the Yah-head operating.

Aleph Tav Alert: 1 Kings

1 KINGS

(Mlakhim Aleph)

The Book of 1 Kings does not specifically name its author but the tradition has the author as the Prophet Jeremiah. The Book of 1 Kings was likely written between 560 and 540 B.C. and this book is actually a sequel to 1 and 2 Samuel and begins by tracing Solomon’s rise to kingship after the death of King David. Both books are combined into one book in the Hebrew (Jewish) Bible. The story begins with the 12 tribes united into one kingdom, but ends with a nation divided into 2 kingdoms, or two houses, known as the House of Judah and the House of Israel.

Aleph/Tav את Used in 1 Kings: אֶת et 0 times, אֶת־ et- 385 times, אֵת eet 33 times, אֶת־ Et- 3 times, אֵת Eet 1 time, אָתְּ aat 0 times, אַתְּ at 3 times, אַתְּ־ at- 0 times, = Total 425

Vav/Aleph/Tav ואת Wa‘at וְאַתְּ 1 time, Wa‘eet וְאֵת 20 times, Wa‘et- וְאֶת־ 78 times = 99 Grand Total 524

Aleph/Tav ALERT: In 1 Kings 1:32-34 King David is commanding Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet to take את Solomon on a DONKEY ride to Gihon and anoint him with את oil and proclaimed him את King over Israel…sound familiar? Just listen to these manifestations of את Y’shua in 1 Kings 1:37 declares, and make greater את his throne than the throne of my adon King David…1 Kings 1:39 states, And took Zadok the priest את horn of oil out of the tent and anointed את Solomon…1 Kings 2:1-3 states, Now the days of David drew near that he should die; and he warned את Solomon his son, saying…3 And keep את charge of יהוה our Elohim and walk in His ways…that you may prosper in את all that you do…in 1 Kings 9:4-9 the promise of יהוה Father to Solomon states, if you will walk before me, as David your father walked…5 then I will establish את throne of your kingdom over Israel for ever…9 and they shall answer, because they forsook את יהוה their Elohim, who brought forth את their fathers out of the land of Egypt and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore יהוה has brought upon them את all this evil…where does Solomon’s wisdom come from, in 1 Kings 10:8 it states, happy are these your servants, that stand continually before you and that hear את your wisdom…and the people sought after him as in 1 Kings 10:24 states, And all the earth sought את of Solomon, to hear את his wisdom, which Elohim had put in his heart…as Solomon turned his את heart from יהוה in 1 Kings 11:10 states, but he did not heed (observe) את that which יהוה commanded…clearly יהוה Father commanding His word through את Y’shua to man, the two (Yah-head) working together as ONE in ONE SPIRIT…Eph 2:18 For through him we both have access by One Spirit unto the Father.

It is interesting to note that after Solomon dies and Rehoboam becomes king when he counsels with the את older men and rejects their advise he is actually rejecting advise of את…as Kings 12:8 states, But he forsook את counsel of the old men…and 1 Kings 12:13 states, and forsook את counsel of the old men which they had given him…but 1 Kings 12:15 explains that this matter was brought about by יהוה that He might establish את His word which יהוה spoke…talking about the prophecy from Ahijah the Prophet that because of Solomon’s sin the kingdom would be divided into two houses, as it is to this present day and Jeroboam would become king of the northern ten tribes as 1 Kings 12:31 states, and will give to you את ten tribes…the prophet Micaiah proclaims who speaks to him in 1 Kings 22:14 which states, And Micaiah said, as יהוה lives, what את says יהוה to me, that will I speak…this is repeated in 2 Chron 10 and clearly implies that יהוה Father’s words flow through את Y’shua by His Spirit, the TWO speaking together as ONE (Yah-head).
