= fxm: Shemot
Names S#8034 Name
Shem means name; reputation;
memory; renown.

hem can be a synonym for reputation or fame: And they said,
Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach
unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon
the face of the whole earth. (Gen. 11:4)
The Theo. Wordbook of the O.T. states that others have regarded it as a
shortened form of shema. But the argument put forth by W.R. Smith is
preferred by some today. It derives shem from the Arabic root as to mark or
brand, hence an external mark to distinguish one thing or person from
another.
The name chosen for a child was often descriptive of the parents wishes or
expectations for the personality that was to mature. This particularly evident
in the renaming process, e.g. Jacob becoming Israel (Gen. 35:10)
We also read in the account of Abraham that he studied in the tents of
Shem. Shem being The Name, which is a direct reference to YHWH.
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

So what were initially discovering about this particular book, the second book
of YHWHs Torah speaks of names, and names are important to GOD, especially
since He goes into specific detail about His name in this weeks parasha, but names
reveal more than just a way to call a person out of a crowd, they speak about who
they are, or who they are destined to become.
As the commonwealth of Israel, regrafted in either as Efrayim, Yehudah,
or either of their companionsbut all by faith, what does this speak about
you? Food for thought; If we are of the house of Jacob, if we are of Israel,
then what and who should our character be evolving, if I may, more and
more into beloved?
Speaking of our Messiah Yeshua we read

5
So now ADONAI says- he formed me in the womb to be his servant,
to bring Ya'akov back to him, to have Isra'el gathered to him, so that I
will be honored in the sight of ADONAI, my God having become my
strength-

6
he has said, "It is not enough that you are merely my servant to
raise up the tribes of Ya'akov and restore the offspring of Isra'el. I will
also make you a light to the nations, so my salvation can spread to the
ends of the earth."

7
Here is what ADONAI, the Redeemer of Isra'el, his Holy One, says
to the one despised, whom the nations detest, to the servant of
tyrants: "When kings see you, they will stand up; princes too will
prostrate themselves, because of ADONAI, who is faithful, the Holy
One of Isra'el, who has chosen you." (Isa 49:5-7 CJB)

4
In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (Joh 1:4 KJV)

5
For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and
ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake.

For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath
shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of
God in the face of Jesus Christ.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of
the power may be of God, and not of us. (2Co 4:5-7 KJV)
Lets take just a cursory look at the sons of Yisrael as they originally
came into the land of Egypt, which for us was just last week as we read
about them being reunited with their brother Yoseph, and moving Yaakob
and the entire family to Goshen in Egypt.
We read at the beginning of this parasha that these are the names,
reputations, fame, and renown of the sons of Israel who came into Egypt
with Yaakob. Lets see exactly what fame they brought into the Land of
Egypt.

In Luke 23 we read the account of Yeshuas crucifixion, and how there
were two malefactors crucified there with him as well, one on His
Right, and one on His Left. By faith I believe that the one who railed
on Yeshua, speaking vulgarities was on His Left, but the one who
begged for forgiveness was on His Rightthe side of Mercy.

goal of one that rules or judges is to bring a pleasant and righteous life to
the people. This can also mean a deliverer as one whom restores life to his
people.

Asher S#836: happy, from S#833; ashar to be straight, to go forward, to
be honest, prosperblessed.);
As we examine each of these special names, there appears to be a
calling, down since creation, through the history of our Patriarchs and to us
today.
ehold His son, who after wisely listening and obeying The
Father, is now being reunited in celebration, as all are giving
thanks for having their burden lifted and their sins pardoned;
having wrought works on behalf of his brothers, despite the fact that
earlier they had gathered around Him, wrestling to murder Him; He could
not be overcome, and now has been restored to life that He may also
restore His lost brothers to become straightened, honest and blessed.
This speaks of the patriarchs, and their brother Joseph, but does this not
also speak of us in our relationship with Messiah?

9
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a
peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who
hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light:

10
Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of
God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained
mercy.(1Pe 2:9-10 KJV).

12
That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the
commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of
promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

13
But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made
nigh by the blood of Christ. (Eph 2:12-13 KJV)

8
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9
Much more then, having now
been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath of God
through Him.
10
For if while we were enemies, we were reconciled to
God through the death of His Son, much more, having been
reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. (Rom 5:8-10 NAS)
Its considerable to point out that the story could not be told without
all of the names working togetherTruly One Name saves usbut as The
Body of Moshiachwe cannot function beautifully, in abundant joyful
demonstration of His power unless we be joined together. As part of The
Fathers eternal design, each of our names holds a piece of the puzzle,
and without each of us joining in love one to another, we are not fully
restored. In humble hearts of repentance, let us love one anotherthat is
how we join together, and then we are restored to our Head, who is
Yeshua!

15
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in every respect grow
up into him who is the head, the Messiah.

16
Under his control, the whole body is being fitted and held
together by the support of every joint, with each part working to
fulfill its function; this is how the body grows and builds itself up
in love. (Eph 4:15-16 CJB)
We read in the book of Names, chapter 1, verse 6 that
6
Yosef died, as did
all his brothers and all that generation.
7
The descendants of Isra'el were
fruitful, increased abundantly, multiplied and grew very powerful; the land
became filled with them. (Exo 1:6-7 CJB)
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

8 | P a g e

Often we overlook it, but YHWH uses the natural to teach us the
spiritual. So many times our finite forgetful minds have to be shown things
in the natural world in order for us to begin to grasp the things The Father
has forever been doing in The Spirit realm, and here we have a picture in
the book of Names with the passing of Yosef and his brothers.
It says that Yosef and his brothers died. Understand that Yosef was
recognized as a type and shadow of Messiah, in fact the name given him by
the Pharaoh of that time meant Savior of the World! And didnt Yosef as an
obedient vessel unto YHWH save the known world from death during that 7
year famine? So yes, here we see an era of time where our Yosef and his
brothers and their father are recognized for the critical role they played in
saving Egypt and the known world at that time from starvation.
So now Yosef and his brothers have died, but we read that their
descendants were fruitful, increased abundantly, multiplied and grew very
powerful, and the land became filled with them.
Number one this reveals YHWHs commitment to Yosef when Israel
placed His blessing upon his children, specifically Yosef when he told
him
Yosef is a fruitful plant, a fruitful plant by a spring, with branches
climbing over the wall.
23
The archers attacked him fiercely, shooting
at him and pressing him hard;
24
but his bow remained taut; and his
arms were made nimble by the hands of the Mighty One of Ya'akov,
from there, from the Shepherd, the Stone of Isra'el,
25
by the God of
your father, who will help you, by El Shaddai, who will bless you with
blessings from heaven above, blessings from the deep, lying below,
blessings from the breasts and the womb.(Gen 49:22-25 CJB)
Can we not see this occurring in verse six when we read that their
descendants were fruitful and increased abundantly, like branches
climbing over a wall fed by a spring?
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

9 | P a g e

Number two it also speaks of an eternal principle set forth by The
Father to teach His children the importance of loving others with
action. The word used in chapter one verse seven is ben
='m: S#1121 Ben bane; a bet and a nun
meaning son (as a builder of the family name) fr.
S#1129 which is
=T'm:bnh, baw-naw; a bet, a nun,
and a heh, a prim. root meaning to build. Banah
means to build, establish, construct, rebuild.
Metaphorically, or figuratively, the verb banah is
used to mean building ones house. Banah can also
refer to rebuilding something that was destroyed.
God is always demonstrating this in His chosen people, His children,
with the saving and restorative work of His Kingdom on earth, for example,
Noah and the construction of the ark, Moshe and the construction of The
Tabernacle, King David and the recovery of the Ark of The Covenant,
Nehemiah and the rebuilding of the Temple, brick upon brick, the
Maccabees and the valiant rededication of the Temple from the Greek-
Syrian emporer Antiochus Epiphanes. GOD IS ALWAYS REBUILDING
RENEWINGRESTORING!

30
If you send out your breath, they are created, and you renew
the face of the earth. (Psa 104:30 CJB)
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

10 | P a g e


3
He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of
righteousness For His name's sake. (Psa 23:3 NAS)

12
You will rebuild the ancient ruins, raise foundations from ages
past, and be called "Repairer of broken walls, Restorer of streets to
live in." (Isa 58:12 CJB)

11
"When that day comes, I will raise up the fallen sukkah of
David. I will close up its gaps, raise up its ruins and rebuild it
as it used to be, (Amo 9:11 CJB)

16
'"After this, I will return; and I will rebuild the fallen tent of
David. I will rebuild its ruins, I will restore it,
17
so that the rest
of mankind may seek the Lord, that is, all the Goyim who have
been called by my name,"
18
says ADONAI, who is doing these
things.' All this has been known for ages (Act 15:16-18 CJB)

7
However, he has given each one of us a special gift through the
generosity of Christ.
8
That is why the Scriptures say, "When he
ascended to the heights, he led a crowd of captives and gave gifts to
his people."
9
Notice that it says "he ascended." This clearly means
that Christ also descended to our lowly world.
10
And the same one
who descended is the one who ascended higher than all the
heavens, so that he might fill the entire universe with himself.
(Eph 4:7-10 NLT)
The principle however that makes all of this possible is that of the
seeds willingness to die unto itself, we read in the book of John chapter 12,

24
Yes, indeed! I tell you that unless a grain of wheat that falls to the
ground dies, it stays just a grain; but if it dies, it produces a big harvest.
25

He who loves his life loses it, but he who hates his life in this world will
keep it safe right on into eternal life! (Joh 12:24-25 CJB)

Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

11 | P a g e

Later we read in the book of First Peter that Yeshua personally
carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and
live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.
25
Once you were like
sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the
Guardian of your souls (1Pe 2:24-25 NLT).
GOD doesnt need us to reconcile the world, He already did it through
His Son all the way back when He made covenant with Abraham when they
walked through the pieces. He wants us to be included, we just have to be
willing to put our agendas, our ideas of what is right, our ego, and our pride
down because until we do, there is no room available for us to be filled with
His Ruach; and isnt that a good picture of Jacob, of Joseph, of Judah, and
all the brothers, and even ourselves really? Do we not see Yaakob spend the
better part of his life struggling, wrestling, learning oftentimes the hard way
how to abandon his flesh, to stop putting confidence in his physical abilities
in the temporal and to give over his life to The Only One who could bring to
fruition an honorable life that fulfills the character and purpose of a true
prevailing prince of YAH?
In verse 8 we read that a new Pharaoh arose in Egypt that knew not
Joseph. The word there for knew is yadah in Hebrew; typically used in
the context of relationship between a man and a woman, or in a friendship
to know someone personally, for example, between GOD and man. But here
we have a king that comes to power in Egypt who knew not Joseph. I
would simply like to point out and submit to you for consideration that this
new king over Egypt was not unaware of Joseph and the legacy he left
behindfor how could he be so blind so as to not see the flocks of
multitudes of Israelites.did they just sprout up in Goshen suddenly one
day unannounced?
Yadah also means to acknowledge, and to admit. What I submit to
you is we see this new pharaoh rise to power in Egypt, well aware of who
The Israelites were, where they came from and of Josephs fame in saving
Egypt from the brink of starvation, but chose NOT to admit or acknowledge
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

12 | P a g e

his good work done to Egypt. Why? Why would a person come to power
and rather than embrace the good practices of those gone before that
proved to be blessings to your country, instead abandon them for tactics
aimed at oppressing the people? Do we see any parallels of this style of
leadership on our planet today? How about even in our own country?
The truth, I submit to you, was this new pharaoh was like all those
who reject The One True GOD; double-minded, darkened, professing to be
wise, but in truth was a fool. The very people that brought stability and
blessing to Egypt, he was now going to force them into a life of slavery??
Like Abimelech, the king of the Philistines did unto Isaac, like Laban did
unto Jacobthey welcomed GODs chosen because they realize there was
gain to be gottenthey were completely aware that GOD was with them!
27
Lavan answered him [Jacob], "If you regard me favorably, then
please listen: I have observed the signs that ADONAI has blessed me on
account of you. (Gen 30:27 CJB)
But after time they observe GOD abundantly multiplying His own
people more than those who initially welcomed them innow become
jealous, and their countenance changes.

34
For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the
day of vengeance.
35
He will not regard any ransom; neither will he
rest content, though thou givest many gifts. (Pro 6:34-35 KJV)
13
And the man [Isaac] waxed great, and went forward, and grew until
he became very great:
14
For he had possession of flocks, and possession of
herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.
15
For all
the wells which his father's servants had digged in the days of Abraham his
father, the Philistines had stopped them, and filled them with earth.
16
And
Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we.
(Gen 26:13-16 KJV)
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

13 | P a g e

Here we have a similar scenario, only this time rather than requiring
them to leave the land, this pharaoh decided he was going to abuse GODs
peoplemistake.

For the remainder of chapter one we begin to see how pharaoh is
going to bring about the Israelites destruction; work them ruthlessly, a life
without mercyand in the process, control their population by only
allowing the females to survive that they may intermarry with the Egyptian
mento cloud the gene poolin essence to end the race of GODs chosen
people.
Chapter 2:
So Pharaoh has decreed that every Hebrew boy born be thrown into
the Nilethe point being it was to remove all hope from the Israelites.
Interesting side notes;
The Nile was a recognized deity in Egypts polytheistic culture. They
had a god for everything, the Nile being one of their most widely
recognized, because as a water source it was understood as a source of
life.
So one might suggest that by pharaoh decreeing every Hebrew boy be
killed in the river, was to be viewed as a sacrifice unto the deity of the
Nileperhaps to give the appearance of loyal obedience to one of
their many gods. Ironic how Pharaohs choice to dispose of the
Israelites by way of waterwhich was recognized as one of their
godswas the very instrument that YHWH used to utterly destroy
pharaoh, his horses, his chariots and his mighty army. Im just sayin

And so in Chapter 2 we read of a man from the tribe of Levi, taking to
wife a woman descended from the tribe of Levi, and she conceives and
bears a sonMoshe. They love and protect the child for three months,
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

14 | P a g e

but at that time, for reasons we can only speculate or assume based on
pharaohs decree, and I would imagine with humble faith, fashion for
baby Moshe an ark. The word used here for ark is tebah
=Tmf: tay-baw S#8392
Meaning: 1) ark 1a) vessel which Noah built 1b)
basket vessel in which Moses was placed
The word used here for ark is used only twice, once in reference to
Noahs Ark, and secondly here, for the ark fashioned for Moshe in the hopes
that it would protect him from imminent death from a watery grave.
Theres parallels and shadows to be gleaned here.
What was the function of Noahs Ark?
And so, when Noah and his family exited the Ark, what did they
do?

15
And God spake unto Noah, saying,
16
Go forth of the ark, thou,
and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.
17

Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all
flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly
in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
18
And
Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives
with him: (Gen 8:15-18 KJV)

20
And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings
on the altar. (Gen 8:20 KJV)
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

15 | P a g e


KJV
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said
unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
(Gen 9:1 KJV)

8
And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,

9
And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with
your seed after you; (Gen 9:8-9 KJV)
The Ark was an outward sign of GOD keeping covenant with those on
the inside. And when the stormy waters had abated, GOD brought them
forth from the Ark and blessed them and reminded them that His covenant
would be with them.
In much the same way we see baby Moshe, powerless against the
threat of being overcome by water, placed in a protective Ark, and then by
faith, set out upon the water, with the hope of being delivered.and so he
was, yes?
Not by some fantastic display or light show, but it was done in an
even more miraculous waythrough the heart of the offspring of the very
one who had decreed Moshes death! GOD can do anything any way He
elects too! Pharaohs daughter we read in chapter 2, verse 5 had come to
bathe in the waters of The Nile, and when her slave girl fetched the basket
and brought it to her she opened it and seeing the crying baby we read she
was moved with pity. The word there in Hebrew is chamal. Its the same
word spoken of GOD when restoring His people again unto Himself,

17
And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I
make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own
son that serveth him.
18
Then shall ye return, and discern between the
righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that
serveth him not. (Mal 3:17-18 KJV)
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

16 | P a g e

=Jxn: S#2550 khaw-mal,
meaning to have pity, to have compassion.
And so here we see GOD moving the heart of pharaohs daughter to
not only have compassion upon him to not only save him, but even more so
to adopt him as her own son! Later she names him, not an Egyptian name,
as the previous Pharaoh did unto Yosef, but gave him a name in the same
language as his own peoplecalling him Moshe.
10
And the child grew, and she brought him unto Pharaoh's daughter, and
he became her son. And she called his name Moses: and she said, Because I
drew him out of the water. (Exo 2:10 KJV)
=Tmx: S#4872 mo-sheh ,
drawing out (of the water); i.e. rescued, fr. S#4871
=Tmx: S#4871 maw-shaw, a
prim. root; to pull out.
Here we have a type and shadow of not only would happen to the
Israelite people, as Moshe would grow to become GODs chosen
instrument to draw-out, to rescue, to pull out the Israelites from the
oppression of an Egyptian pharaoh and the parting waters of the Red sea as
well read later, but this speaks also of what Messiah has and continues to
do todayGOD sent His WORD to instruct Noah how to build the Ark,
essentially, apart from GODs WORD there would be no ark! The Ark
Ex.1:1-6:1 Isa.27:6-28:13; 29:22-23 Matt.22:23-33

17 | P a g e

therefore is a vessel of mercy given by The WORD to save man that GOD
will send to draw him out of the chaotic waters filled with those dead who
chose not to walk in faith, and place those inside the Ark eventually on safe,
dry land, a wide open space where we can present our offerings to GOD and
worship Him in Spirit and Truth. And isnt that what The Father instructed
Moshe later on when he went back to speak to Pharaoh? The plan was that
GOD had called His people to the wilderness to celebrate a feast unto
YHWH.
And afterward Moses and Aaron went in, and told Pharaoh, Thus
saith the LORD God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a
feast unto me in the wilderness. (Exo 5:1 KJV)
Moshe then grows up to become a man, and one day as we observe in
Scripture, he sees an Egyptian taskmaster beating one of his Hebrew
brotherswe read in verse 12 that he looked this way and that way and
there was no man. Moshe here kills a man because he observes him
treating his own people harshly. This is a difficult passage for me to be
quite honest. Ive got some more maturing to do in this area because
quite honestly if I saw my brother, my neighbor, my father, my mother
or any one of you being beaten or whipped I would probably be
overtaken in a heated rage and do the same. The point however, I
believe, is not to punish or make an example out of Moshe in a bad way
for loving his brothers? Norather what Moshe failed to realize was
that he was operating not in The power of The Spirit here, rather he was
trusting solely in an arm of flesh. By trusting in his emotions he was
essentially saying
I will render justice, I will set things right, I will do it on my own, II
II, get it? Ok, so let us love one another, protect one another, but be
sure that we do it according to His Way, and His Wordeasier said than

In the next meeting among his Hebrew brothers we see Moshe
attempt to reconcile two Israelite brothers where the striving has become so
out of control that one has struck the other. Moshe approaches and makes
his appeal, and in the process of attempting to bring restoration and
forgiveness, they turn on him and point out his own inability to practice
what hes preaching. Have I ever been there!

Hebrew brothers, what I believe to be a rather sarcastically phrased

a prince or a judge over us? (Exo 2:14 NAS) The Hebrew reads Sar

But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not
merely hearers who delude themselves. (Jam 1:19-22 NAS)
Truly, anger does not achieve the righteousness of GOD beloved, yet
another lesson I am still learning

And so Moshe out of fear that Pharaoh knows what hes done flees to
Midian from the word Midyan, meaning contentious, brawling. He
settles by a well. The word for well is Beer from S#874 which is
=[m: baw-ar, meaning to dig, to
engrave, to explain.
