On the ground of the sin thus referred to again, the proclamation of punishment is renewed, and the different fates awaiting the servants of Yəhwôâh and those by whom He is despised are here announced in five distinct theses and antitheses. "Therefore thus saith Adonai, Yəhwôâh: Behold my servants will eat, but ye will hunger; behold my servants will drink, but ye will thirst; behold my servants will rejoice, but ye will be put to shame; behold my servants will exult for delight of heart, but ye will cry for anguish of heart, and you will lament for brokenness of spirit. And ye will leave your name for a curse to my chosen ones, and Adonai, Yəhwôâh, will slay thee; but His servants He will be call by another name, to that whoever blessed himself in the land will bless himself by the Ĕlôhîym of truthfulness, and whoever swearers in the land will swear by the Ĕlôhîym of truthfulness, because the former troubles are forgotten, and because they have vanished from mine eyes." The name Adonai is connected only with the name of Yəhwôâh for the purpose of affirming that he is Ĕlôhîym of salvation and judgment has the power to carry out His promises and threats into execution. Starving, confounded by the

salvation they had rejected (‫ תבשו‬as in Isa 66:5), crying and wailing (‫ת10ילו‬ ‫2 יל‬ Tə'yeiliylu, as in Isaiah, 65:14 and ‫ 210יל‬Yəyeiliyl Isaiah,15:2 , with a double ‫ייל‬ preformative; For sorrow of heart and crushing of spirit (‫ שבר‬Shever), rendered very well by the lxx συντριβη, as in Isa 61:1, συντετριμμενους broken-hearted ), The rebellious ones are left behind in the land of captivity, whilst the servants of Yəhwôâh enjoy the richest blessings from Ĕlôhîym in the land of promise (Isaiah 62:8-9). The former, perishing in the land of captivity, leave their name to the latter as shəvuah (oath), i.e., to serve as a formula by which to swear, or rather to execrate or curse (Numbers 5:21), so that men will say, "Yəhwôâh slay thee, as He slew them." This, at any rate, is the meaning of the threat; but the words ‫ והמיתך‬Ve'hemiytəcha (and will kill you) ‫ והמיתך‬cannot contain the actual .0 35 formula, not even if we drop the Vav, as Knobel proposes, and change ‫לבחירי‬ into ‫ ;לבחיריו‬for, in the first place, although in the doxologies a Hebrew was in the habit of saying "Bareichə Shəmei~" (bless his name) instead of ‫ יהי‬yəhiy sheim baruch ( his name be blessed), he never went so far as the Arab with his Allah tabar "Allah. knows and you knows not.", but said rather ‫3תברך‬ 0:. 0‫י‬ Yi'təbareichə will be blessed. Still less could he make use of the perfect (indicative) in such sentences as "may he slay thee," instead of the future (voluntative (voluntative Optative: Obtainable Wish)) ‫ ,.מית‬unless the perfect 3‫י‬ shared the operative force of the previous future by virtue of the consecutio temporum (a grammar rule from Latin that disciplines the relationship between the tenses in subordinate sentences. Consecutio temporum has very rigid). And secondly,the indispensable ‫ כהם‬or ‫ כאלה‬would be wanting (see Jeremiah 29:22, cf., Genesis 48:20). We may therefore assume, that the prophet has before his mind the words of this imprecatory (to call down harm, especially a curse, on somebody) ) formula, though he does not really express them, and that he deduces from it the continuation of the threat. And this explains his passing from the plural to the singular. Their name will become an execration; but Yəhwôâh will call His servants by another name (cf., Isaiah 62:2), so that henceforth it will be the Ĕlôhîym of the faithfully fulfilled promise whose name men take into their mouth when they either desire a blessing or wish to give assurance of the truth (to bless one's self with any one, or with the name of any one; No other name of any Ĕlôhîym is now heard in the land, except this gloriously attested name; for the former troubles, which included the mixed condition of Israel in exile and the persecution of the worshipers of Yəhwôâh by the despises of Yəhwôâh, are now forgotten, so that they no longer disturb the enjoyment of the present, and are eve hidden from the eyes of Ĕlôhîym, so that all thought of ever renewing them is utterly remote from His mind. This is the connection between Isaiah 65:16 and Isaiah 65:13-15.& Genesis 31:49 for example, but as in Genesis 13:16. What follows is the result of the separation accomplished and the promise fulfilled. For the same reason Ĕlôhîym is called Elohe'amein, "the Ĕlôhîym of Amein," i.e., the Ĕlôhîym who turns what

He promises into absolute fact and Amein (Co2 1:20). The epithet derived from the confirmatory Amein, which is thus applied to Yəhwôâh, is similar applied to the expression in Rev 3:14, where Yəshua is called "the Amein, the faithful and true witness." The explanatory kı̂y (for)is emphatically repeated in ‫ ,כי‬as in Gen 33:11 and Samuel1 19:4 (compare Job 38:20). The inhabitants of the land stand in a close and undisturbed relation to the Ĕlôhîym who has proved Himself to be true to His promises; for all the former evils that followed from the sin have entirely passed away. Reference:
Hurt: The term (noun and verb) represents a large number of Hebrew words, of which the chief are ra` (verb ra`a`), "evil" (Gen 26:29; 1 Sam 24:9; Ps 35:4, etc.), and shevor or shever (from Shiveir/Shibeir), "a fracture" or "breaking" (Jer 6:14; 8:11,21; 10:19; compare Ex 22:10,14). In Greek a principal verb is adikeo, "to do injustice" (Luke 10:19; Rev 2:11; 6:6, etc.); once the word "hurt" is used in the King James Version (Acts 27:10, story of Sha'ul's shipwreck) for υυ ́βρις hubris, "injury" (thus the Revised Version (British and American)). In the Revised Version (British and American) "hurt" sometimes takes the place of other words in the King James Version, as "sick" (Proverbs 23:35), "breach" (Isa 30:26), "bruise" (Jer 30:12; Nah 3:19); sometimes, on the other hand, the word in the King James Version is exchanged in the Revised Version (British and American) for "evil" (Josh 24:20), "harm" (Acts 18:10), or, as above, "injury" (Acts 27:10). These references sufficiently show the meaning of the word--harm, bruise, breaking, etc. In Jeremiah (ut supra; as stated or cited above) the word is used figuratively for moral disease or corruption.

The Mashiyach is called ‫ :ד8+י‬adoni (my master) and in every one of its 164 occurrences ‫א נ‬ adoni (my master) means a superior who is not Eloah. ADONAI on the other hand refers exclusively to the One Eloah in all of its 449 occurrences. ADONAI is the title of Deity and adoni never designates Deity. Mar 10:44 “And whoever wishes to be first among you, shall be bond-servant (Eved Hebrew and Aramaic δου λος doulos; a slave, bondman, bond-servant ; one who gives υ himself up to another’s will those whose service is used by Ha’Mashiyach in extending and advancing his cause among men, devoted to another to the disregard of one’s own interests) of all.

THE Tőrâh OF THE bond-servant
Exodus 19:16 “And it came to pass on the third day in the morning, that there were thunders and lightning, and a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that was in the camp trembled."

It is hard to imagine what Yisra’el must have witnessed as they stood at the base of Mount Sinai. To see the mountain smoke, to feel the ground quake, to hear the sound of voices, thundering and the blast of the shofar must truly have been awe inspiring and, let's face it, terribly frightening. No wonder they told Moshe in Exodus 20:19, "Speak thou with us, and we will hear (shama: Hear, understand and obey): but let not Ĕlôhîym speak with us, lest we die." They were ready to listen, as long as Ĕlôhîym would speak through Moshe. In fact, they told Moshe that if he would be the intermediary (to stand in the breach), they would definitely "hear" and "do" all that Yəhwôâh commanded. Even Ĕlôhîym thought that this was a good idea (Deuteronomy 5:28). So, now that He had their undivided attention, He prepared to give them His ordinances. What would be first? There were many things for them to learn considering they had only known the "Lash Law"(forced labor). What awesome command would He give them in addition to the Ten Commands already spoken? :‫ל8 +ים 2ה+ישו <ל הד <ת או <ל ה 2זו5ה ורצע :ד85יו <ת א2נו במרצע -ע 5דו 2ע8 5ם‬P ‫2ה+ישו :ד85יו <ל ה‬ ‫א נ א ז - - 2 & - ו:ב ל ל‬ ‫א -מ ז‬ ‫ו + ג א נ א 5 א ה ו + ג א - <ל‬ ‫שמות, כא:ו‬ Then his master shall bring him to the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or to the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him forever: Exodus, 21:6

If his master shall give him a woman, and she shall bear him sons or daughters, the woman and her children shall be his master’s, and he shall go out in his body.

confirmed and implanted truth; "and if saying the servant shall say," signifies thought then from the implanted truth; "I love my master, my woman, and my children," signifies the delight of the remembrance of Ru’ach HaKodesh Tzədaka~; "I will not go out free," signifies the delight of obedience; "then his master shall bring him unto Ĕlôhîym," signifies a state into which he then enters according to Divine order; "and shall bring him to the door, or unto the door-post," signifies a state of communication of truth confirmed and implanted with Ru’ach HaKodesh righteous; "and his master shall bore through his ear with his awl," signifies a representative of obedience; "and he shall serve him forever," signifies to eternity. . When thou shalt buy a Hebrew servant. That this signifies those within the set-apart ones who are in the truths of Yəhôwâh’s word and not in righteous according to them, is evident from the signification of "buying," as being to procure and appropriate to one’s self; and from the signification of "a Hebrew servant," as being those within the set-apart ones who are in the truths of Yəhôwâh’s word and not in goodness of life according to them; for "servant" is predicated of those who are in truth and not in the corresponding goodness of life, and in general, of truth relatively to goodness, and "Hebrew" is predicated of those things which are of the set-apart ones , and of those things which are of some service. That it is predicated of those things which are of the set-apart, also that it is predicated of those things which are of some service. As in what now follows, the menservants and maidservants of the sons of Yisra’el are treated of it must be told what the statutes concerning them involve in the internal sense. Everyone can see that the statutes contain within them secret things of heaven, because they were spoken and commanded orally by Yəhôwâh to Moshe on Mount Sinai, and because they follow immediately after the words of the Tőrâh. Apart from such secret things they would be merely civil and public laws like the laws of other nations on earth, in which there is no secret thing of heaven. But the secret things here contained are not manifest except to the angels in the heavens, consequently not to men except by the internal sense; for this teaches how the angels perceive the Word, consequently it teaches the secret things that are within the Word. What and of what quality these secret things are, will be plain in the following explication of each particular. [2] That a general idea may be had, it shall be briefly told what is specifically meant by "Hebrew servants" in the internal sense. In the Ru’ach HaKodesh set-apart ones, which the sons of Yisra’el represented, there are two kinds of men: there are those who are in the truth of faith and not in the corresponding righteous of life, and there are those who are in the Tzədaka~ and in the corresponding truth of faith. They who are in the Tzədaka~ and in the corresponding truth of faith are they who constitute the very setapart ones itself, and are men of the internal set-apart ones. In the internal sense of the Word these are they who are called the "sons of Yisra’el." These are of themselves free, because they are in righteous; for they who are led by Yəhwôâh by means of Tzədaka~ are free. But they who are in the truth of faith and not in the corresponding Tzədaka~ of life are men of the external Ru’ach HaKodesh ones. These are they who in the internal sense of the Word are meant by the "Hebrew servants." They are represented by servants because those things which are of the external set-apart ones are relatively nothing else than things of service. The case is similar also with the truth of faith relatively to the

Tzədaka~ ; for the truth of faith serves for introducing the man of the set-apart ones into the Tzədaka~ . [3] Be it known moreover that he who makes everything of the set-apart ones, thus everything of salvation, to consist in the truth of faith and not in the righteous , and who also does righteous from obedience only and not from the affection which is of the love, cannot be regenerated, as can those who are in the righteous , that is, who do what is righteous from the affection of love. They can indeed be reformed, but not re generated. Their reformation is here treated of in the internal sense in the laws concerning menservants and concerning maidservants. The secret things of this reformation are not at this day known to anyone, for the reason that an almost total ignorance prevails within the set-apart ones of what the truth of faith effects toward salvation, and what the Tzədaka~ effects. Nay, it is not known what charity is, or that charity and faith must marry together for Ru’ach HaKodesh to exist in man; for the marriage of Tzədaka~ and truth is the marriage of set-apart ones, because it is heaven in man. Six years he shall serve. That this signifies a state of labor and of some examination (trial, or testing) and of the consequent confirmation of truth, is evident from the signification of "six years," as being states of labor and examination (trial, or testing). That "six" signifies labor and examination (trial, or testing); and that "years" signify states. That the confirmation of truth is also signified is because Ru’ach HaKodesh truth (You have hidden in me the fountain (Yəhôwâh's Word) of understanding and the counsel (Ru’ach HaKodesh) of truth. (To achieve knowledge of the truth through the Ru’ach HaKodesh)" (1QH) Column 13 The Dead Sea Scrolls;The Thanksgiving Scrolls) , which is called the truth of faith, is confirmed by labor and examination (trial, or testing). It is said "somewhat of examination (trial, or testing),"‘because they who are in the truth of faith and not in the corresponding Tzədaka~ of life are not admitted into any grievous examination (trial, or testing), that is, into temptation, because they would yield. For Adonai cannot flow in with them by means of Tzədaka~, and thus defend them against the evils and perversion of the truth which assail in temptations. They are only external men, and whatever flows in from Adonai must flow in through the internal man into the external. When men are not in the righteous , the internal man is not open, for righteous is that which opens the internal man, and which dwells there. And in the seventh year he shall go out free for nothing. That this signifies a state of truth confirmed without exertion on his part, is evident from the signification of "the seventh year," as being a state of the conjunction of Tzədaka~ and truth; for by "the seventh year" is signified the like as by "the seventh day," or "the sabbath." That by this is signified the conjunction of Tzədaka~ and truth, or the heavenly marriage, thus the state of peace which succeeds after a state of servitude. But here, as those who are in truth and not in the corresponding Tzədaka~ of life are treated of, by "the seventh year" is signified a state of confirmed truth. The reason is that with such there is no conjunction of truth and Tzədaka~, as there is with those who are in the Tzədaka~ , and who are understood in the representative sense by the sons of Yisra’el; but instead of this conjunction there is the confirmation of truth. And from the signification of "for nothing" (gratis), as being without exertion on their part; for when they are in labor and in some

examination (trial, or testing) the truth of faith with them is confirmed by Adonai without any effort of theirs. The like is signified by "for nothing," or "freely" in these passages:-I will give unto him that is a-thirst (eager or longing for something) from the fountain of the water of life freely (Rev. 21:6). He that heareth, let him say, Come; and he that is athirst, let him come; and he that will, let him take the water of life freely (Rev. 22:17). (water of life; Yəhwôâh Word through the Ru'ach Hakodesh.) Everyone that thirsts, go ye to the water, and he that hath no silver; go ye, buy and eat; go ye, I say, buy wine and milk without silver and without price (Isa. 55:1);

And so with respect to water, which signifies the Ru’ach HaKodesh things of faith, and concerning which Adoni thus speaks in John:-Yəshua said, Every one that drinks of this water shall thirst again; but whosoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a fountain of water springing up unto eternal life (John 4:13, 14). But at the present day there are those who are like the woman with whom adoni (Yәshua) spoke at the well, and who answered, adon (master), give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw (John 4:15). That waters signify Ru’ach HaKodesh things, is evident from many passages in the Word; and that they also signify Perversion of the truth, let the following passages, in addition to those already cited, serve for confirmation. In Isaiah:-This people hath refused the waters of Shiloah that go softly; therefore behold Yəhôwâh brings up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, and he shall go over all his banks (Isaiah 8:6, 7). The waters that go softly, here denote things Ru’ach HaKodesh, waters strong and many, Perversion of the truth. Again:-Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia; that sends ambassadors upon the sea, and in vessels of papyrus upon the waters. Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers divide (baza'; to divide) (Isaiah 18:1, 2), Denoting the Perversion of the truth which is of the land shadowing with wings. [3] Again:--

When you passes through the waters I will be with you, and through the rivers they shall not overflow thee (Isaiah 43:2). The waters and rivers denote difficulties, and also Perversion of the truth. In Jeremiah:-What hast thou to do with the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Shihor? And what hast thou to do with the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river? (Jeremiah 2:18), Where waters denote Perversion of the truth from mans self-reasoning. Again:-Who is this that riseth up as a river? As the rivers his waters are in commotion. Egypt riseth up as a river, and as the rivers his waters toss themselves; and he said, I will rise up, I will cover the earth, I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof (Jeremiah 46:7, 8), Where again waters denote Perversion of the truth from mans self-reasoning. “When we fail to align our lives with eternal principles – temporal or Ru’ach HaKodesh – we eventually will resort to unsound reasoning and subsequent sinful action wanting something good but not wanting to obey the Tőrâh that bring the desired fruit of living in harmony with the Tőrâh in our lives. Sin is the Perversion of the Tőrâh: that manifests itself through the desires of the hearts.” [4] In Ezekiel:-Thus saith Ha’Adonai Yəhôwâh, when I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited, when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and the great waters shall cover thee, then will I bring thee down with them that descend into the pit (Ezekiel 26:19, 20). Waters here denote evils and the Perversion of the truth therein. In Habakkuk:-Thou didst tread the sea with thine horses, the mire of many waters (Habakkuk 3:15), Hebrew idiom the mire of many waters; a mire of confusion,and falsity Where waters denote Perversion of the truth. In John:-And the serpent cast forth after the woman, out of his mouth, water as a river that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream (Rev. 12:15, 16). Here waters denote Perversion of the truth and lies. In David:-Send Thine hand from above, rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of the sons of the stranger, whose mouth speaks lies, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood (Ps. 144:7, 8).

Great waters here manifestly denote Perversion of the truth; the sons of the stranger also signify Perversion of the truth. That the "waters" here and in the following verses signify Perversion of the truth, is evident from the passages of the Word adduced at the beginning of this chapter, and at (verse 6), where a "flood" or inundation of waters is treated of. It is there shown that inundations of waters signify desolations and temptations, which involve the same as Perversion of the truth; for desolations and temptations are nothing else than inundations of Perversion of the truth that are exacerbated by evil spirits. That such "waters" signify Perversion of the truth, is because in the Word "waters" in general signify what is Ru’ach HaKodesh, that is, what is of understanding, of reason, and of intellectual-knowledge; and as they signify these they also signify their contraries, for every falsity is a something pertaining to intellectual-knowledge, and appears as a thing of reason and understanding, because it is of man’s thought. [2] That "waters" signify Ru’ach HaKodesh things, is evident from many passages in the Word; and that they also signify Perversion of the truth, let the following passages, in addition to those already cited, serve for confirmation. In Isaiah:-This people hath refused the waters of Shiloah that go softly; therefore behold Yəhwôâh brings up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, and he shall go over all his banks (Isaiah 8:6, 7). The "waters that go softly," here denote things Ru’ach HaKodesh, "waters strong and many," Perversion of the truth. Again:-Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia; that sends ambassadors upon the sea, and in vessels of papyrus upon the waters. Go, ye swift messengers, to a nation meted out and trodden down, whose land the rivers have divide (Isaiah 18:1, 2), Denoting the A perversion of truth originating in the deceitfulness which is of the "land shadowing with wings." [3] Again:-When thou passes through the waters I will be with thee, and through the rivers they shall not overflow thee (Isaiah 43:2). The "waters" and "rivers" denote difficulties, and also a perversion of truth originating in the deceitfulness . In Jeremiah:-What hast thou to do with the way of Egypt, to drink the waters of Shihor? And what hast thou to do with the way of Assyria, to drink the waters of the river? (Jeremiah 2:18),

Where "waters" denote Perversion of the truth from reasoning. Again:-Who is this that riseth up as a river? As the rivers his waters are in commotion. Egypt riseth up as a river, and as the rivers his waters toss themselves; and he said, I will rise up, I will cover the earth, I will destroy the city and the inhabitants thereof (Jeremiah 46:7, 8), Where again "waters" denote A perversion of truth originating in the deceitfulness from reasoning. [4] In Ezekiel:-Thus saith Adonai Yəhôwâh, when I shall make thee a desolate city, like the cities that are not inhabited, when I shall bring up the deep upon thee, and the great waters shall cover thee, then will I bring thee down with them that descend into the pit (Ezekiel 26:19, 20). "Waters" here denote evils and the Perversion of the truth there from. In Habakkuk:-Thou didst tread the sea with thine horses, the mire of many waters (Habakkuk 3:15), Where "waters" denote Perversion of the truth. In John:-And the serpent cast forth after the woman, out of his mouth, water as a river that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream (Rev. 12:15, 16). Here "waters" denote Perversion of the truth and lies. In David:-Send Thine hand from above, rescue me and deliver me out of great waters, out of the hand of the sons of the stranger, whose mouth speaks a lie, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood (Ps. 144:7, 8). “Great waters" here manifestly denote Perversion of the truth; the "sons of the stranger" also signify Perversion of the truth. Thus far "Noah" has been treated of, or the regenerate man called "Noah," who were in the "ark," and were "lifted up above the waters." The subject will now be those descendants of the Most Ancient set-apart ones who were under the waters, or were submerged by the waters. The Call for Servants Exodus 21:1-6 "Now these are the judgments which thou shalt set before them. If thou buy a Hebrew servant, six years he shall serve: and in the seventh he shall go out free for nothing. If he came in by himself, he shall go out by himself: if he were married, then his wife shall go out with him. If his master has given him a wife and she have born him sons

or daughters; the wife and her children shall be her master's, and he shall go out by himself. And if the servant shall plainly say, I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free: Then his master shall bring him unto the judges; he shall also bring him to the door, or unto the door post; and his master shall bore his ear through with an awl; and he shall serve him for ever." This was for the rest of his life. The entire Tanakh is types and shadows of the Brit Chadashah believer’s life, a natural picture of Ru’ach HaKodesh truth that would be realized in Ha'Mashiyach. So what could this possibly be saying to us today as believers? There is nothing in the Tanakh that is just history or to tell a story of something that happened, but there to teach Ru’ach HaKodesh truths. Even Yәshua said His words were spirit and life. The entire Word of Ĕlôhîym is Ru’ach HaKodesh and alive. Yәshua was the Word, the Tőrâh made flesh. He lived it through out in His life, fulfilling it, not doing away with it. He lived the Tőrâh. Of all the Tőrâh Ĕlôhîym could have started with, it strikes me as odd that He would begin with the Tőrâh of a servant. You see little difference between the slavery of their time and that of our own history, with the exception of the mistreatment of slaves that some were guilt of. They were purchased, but with a time limitation for their service. Back to the issue of this seeming odd that Ĕlôhîym would begin with the Tőrâh of a bought servant, that is, unless there is a deeper meaning contained within the instructions. Actually, I think that "deeper meaning" is exactly what He wished to convey. Ĕlôhîym loved to paint word pictures to teach Ru’ach HaKodesh truth using natural things. Yәshua also did this in His teaching. Consider that when the people pleaded with Moshe to intercede (to stand in the breach) on their behalf, they pledged to " shama: hear" understand and "obey." Yəhwôâh told Moshe they were "right in all that they have spoken" (Deuteronomy 5:27-28). “Go thou near, and hear "sha ma: hear" understand a and "obey.” all that Yəhwôâh our Ĕlôhîym shall say: and speak thou unto us all that Yəhwôâh our Ĕlôhîym shall speak unto thee; and we will hear it, and do it. And Yəhwôâh heard the voice of your words, when ye spoke unto me; and Yəhwôâh said unto me, I have heard the voice of the words of this people, which they have spoken unto thee: they have well said all that they have spoken.” Yet, in the following verse (V.29), Yəhwôâh reveals something about the people when He says, "O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!" (Deuteronomy 5:29). They didn’t have the heart to follow through with their words and Yəhwôâh knew it. It seems to me that Ĕlôhîym was already convinced that, though this generation that came out of Egypt might "obey; shama “the words they were told, they would not "hear” “shama “the message”. This suggests to me that their motive, their provocation to "obey" was fear. It was the same as when they were in Egypt. They obeyed the Egyptians because they feared the whip. Same attitude, same motivation! "All the people that were in the camp trembled” (Exodus 19:16). Deuteronomy 20:18 “And all the people saw the

thundering, and the lightning, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking: and when the people saw it, they removed, and stood afar off.” They were terrified of Ĕlôhîym and of coming near to Him. They were willing to serve Him because they feared Him, but Ĕlôhîym desired for them to serve because they loved Him and appreciated what He had done for them. This issue is why the first mishpat or judgment Yəhwôâh teaches them of is the law of the bond-servant. First of all, this law does not pertain to an sakı̂yr; “hired laborer, hired servant”, who agrees to a certain wage for a certain amount of work. Yəhwôâh is addressing the issue of a servant, Ha'eved; one who is bonded to serve a household without being paid wages, no compensation – a slave. After serving six years, the master releases the servant, who is free to go his own way accompanied by his family under the conditions prescribed by the Tőrâh. Yet, as verse five points out, the servant may, of his own free will, decide to stay with his master. The Tőrâh says, if he plainly says, "I love my master…" In Hebrew the text reads, Ahavətiy et ADONAI -" I love my master Ahavətiy et ADONAI ." The Hebrew word of master is translated as ‘adon, master, owner’ and it comes from an unused root meaning to rule, sovereign, human or divine. It is the same as the compound name of Ĕlôhîym in scripture beginning with “ADONAI -". That is very interesting because this is one of the titles used for Yәshua, as in Psalm 110:1. “Yəhwôâh, (yeh-hoo-ahh'; or more accurately the Father) said to adoni (referring to Yәshua), Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies your footstool.” Please notice that the servant professes love for ADONAI, He then says, "I will not go out free." The bond-servant has made a decision to remain a servant, but this time it is forever. In other words, he is released from bondage by his adoni, but for love of his ADONAI, he gives up his freedom to become a servant of his master all the days of his life. This servant is no longer a slave but a ‫ ע <ד‬Eved ‫ עב +י‬Ivriy ‫ 0ר 7ה‬Nirtza Hebrew bond‫<ב‬ ‫+ 2ר‬ ‫נ2צ‬ servant (a Hebrew slave to be acceptable; whose ear has been pierced) who works for his master eternally, but definitely not a hireling, but a willing bond-servant, like Sha’ul and the other Brit Chadashah talmidim s. Love And Obedience What does this say to us? The servant was willing to give up his freedom out of love for his master. That was a decision based not on fear, not on intellectual assent, but upon the condition and attitude of his heart. This seems to be the message that the Father conveys in this principle and that tells me that Ĕlôhîym isn't focused primarily on what my hands do as much as what is in my heart to do. In other words, he may have my hands and even my mind, but if He doesn't have my heart, then He doesn't have me. Many ‘serve’ Ĕlôhîym, but not really, because they are not doing His Will or His desire, but their own way with a man made religious covering they have made for themselves. It is what they choose to do for Ĕlôhîym and not what He has asked them do in, as a servant of His master.

This principle is expressed in the Hebrew, shama, (Deuteronomy 6:4-5) which begins, "Hear, O Yisra’el: Yəhwôâh our Ĕlôhîym is one: And thou shalt love Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym with all thine heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might." Notice that love that prompts true obedience begins in the heart. From there it manifests in the soul or consciousness of man and finally in our hands and feet, our might. Don't miss the point: obedience - servitude - MUST begin in the heart if it is to please ADONAI you’re ADONAI and adoni, Yәshua. Remember when He said, “Ye call me teacher (διδασκαλος didaskalos) and adoni: and ye say well; for so I am” (John 13:13). Please note the “I AM.” It has a dual connotation and application, for Yәshua is the great “I AM.” He said, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Avraham was, I am” (John 8:58). The reader should also remember that it is this command, the shama, that Yәshua recognized as the first and greatest command in (Mark 12:29-31). “And Yәshua answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear “shama”, O Yisra’el; Yəhwôâh our Ĕlôhîym is one ADONAI : And thou shalt love Yəhwôâh Your Ĕlôhîym with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with your entire mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love your neighbor as yourself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” Along with the command to love one's neighbor as one would love himself, love of Ĕlôhîym is the very foundation of Tőrâh obedience. The Scripture declares this to be greater than all burnt offerings and sacrifices in (Mark 12: 33). For it to be any other way will not work! Consider Yisra’el at the base of Mount Sinai.

In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted; mine ears you have opened (to your Tőrâh; your Tőrâh is in my heart ); burnt-offering and sin-offering have you not required. It isn't sacrifices and offerings which you really want from your people. Burnt animals bring no special joy to your heart. But you have accepted the offer of my lifelong service. (bondservant) Then I said, "See, I have come, just as all the prophets foretold. And I delight to do your will, my Ĕlôhîym, for your Tőrâh is written upon my heart!" Verses 6, 8: In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted; burnt-offering and sin-offering you

have not required: I delight to do your will, O ĔLÔHÎYM, and your Tőrâh is in my inner parts. It
external worship, and that when they were separated from internal worship, they were idolatrous; this must be plain to every man of sound reason, for what is an altar, but

is evident from these Words, that burnt-offerings and sacrifices were merely representative of

something of stone, and what is burnt-offering and sacrifice but the slaying of a beast? If acknowledged, and from which worship should be paid to him whom they represent

worship be Divine, it must represent the Ĕlôhîym’s principles which should be known and

To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding: Proverbs, 1:2 Psalms 40:7 Then I said, “See, I have come; In the scroll of the Book it is prescribed for me. Psalms 40:8 I have delighted to do Your pleasure, O my Ĕlôhîym, And Your Tőrâh is within my heart1.” Footnote: 1Ps. 37:31, Ps. 119:11, Isa. 51:7, Heb. 10:7-9.

They had been in bondage (‫ + 2לות‬Sivəlot;Bondage, Repression, Oppression, Burden) ‫סב‬ before adoni Yәshua freed them. He reminded them of this when He uttered the first command (in ordinal sequence) at Sinai; (Exodus 20:2) "I am Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage (Sivəlot)." Now freed, they had a decision to make; to obey and come into Ĕlôhîym’s house, or to go their own way. They chose to accept Ĕlôhîym’s Tőrâh and yet, the record shows that their heart was not in it. Ĕlôhîym was right, they didn’t have a heart to follow throw with what they said. It is just talk. Have you ever made a promise or commitment to Yəhwôâh that at the moment, whether because of emotion, fear or manipulation by someone, or you were in a mess and wanted Ĕlôhîym’s help and you made a promise that you may have been sincere about at the time, but then you didn’t have the heart to follow through and keep it. Emotions are not a good foundation for a solid commitment. It takes a solid decision, based on understanding and knowledge and commitment to what you believe in and not being moved by emotions of the moment to make a good decision that you will keep. any ‘commitment’ based on something that is of the moment, fear, anxiety, sympayour, or feelings of any kind will not last. Feelings alone do not equal quality or make for a quality commitment. Emotions of the moment are fleeting. You can see what is called a tearjerker movie and be moved to tears. Some men are good at manipulating emotions. Ĕlôhîym wants commitment that comes from the heart based on who He is and what He has done and our yielding our lives to Him in a decision based on eternal things and faith. The very ones who saw the awesome manifestations on Sinai; the ones who proclaimed, " Exodus 32:4 And he took this from their hand, and he formed it with an engraving tool, and made a molded calf. And they said, “This is your mighty one, O Yisra’ĕl, that brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim!” (Exodus 32:4). We are told in Matthew 12:34, that out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks! Now, notice the connection between the first command - "I am Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage," the greatest command – “thou shalt love Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym with all thine heart, and

with all your soul, and with all your might" and the first ordinance, the Tőrâh of the bond-servant. Do you see the connection with “I love my master … I will not go out free (out of his house)?” First of all, Moshe clearly connects redemption from Egypt to the bond-servant being set free in Deuteronomy 15:15. “And thou shalt remember that thou was a bondman in the land of Egypt, and Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym redeemed thee …” Secondly, these three commands are all motivated by love. Finally, the first two are actually demonstrated in the law of the bond-servant. The master sets the bondman free. The free man, because he loves his master, freely serves him with all of his heart, soul and might. Ĕlôhîym didn’t just want Yisra’el's hands because they weren't in mud pits anymore. He didn't just want their minds because they were free from the tyranny of the taskmasters. Above all, He wanted their hearts. He wanted those who would plainly say, Ahavətiy et ADONAI, "I love ADONAI . I will not go out free." Recall how Ĕlôhîym exclaimed in Deuteronomy 5:29, "Oh, that they had such a heart in them that they would fear me and always keep my commandments, that it might be well with them and with their children FOREVER."

‫+י <ת ע8ל ¦ ×לו 2 &ת מ &ה ש 2מו ש <ט -נ8&ש בו ה +ת8ת 2יום מד5ן: ישעיה, ט:ג‬ ‫ ח 5 כ + 2י‬‫סב וא - ט + כ & ב ה ג‬ ‫כ א‬
For you have broken the yoke of his burden (‫ ¦ ×לו‬Subalo), and the staff of his shoulder, ‫סב‬ the rod of his oppressor, as in the days of Midian: Isaiah, 9:3 Getting Attached To Ĕlôhîym’s House Ĕlôhîym desired then as He does now, that His people would have a heart within them to surrender their own will to His. In short, He looks for those willing to be bond-servants in His house. Remember, when the servant made the decision to remain with his master as a servant, it was forever. Understand there were unpublicized benefits of this decision, however. Yes, the servant remained a servant but as a member of his master's house for their relationship has now changed. Consequently, his master was to provide for, care for and protect that servant. By becoming a permanent servant - by being part of that household - he and his children would FOREVER be taken care of. To illustrate this principle, that servant had to, first of all, appear before the elders and publicly announce his decision. He was then taken to the door of his master's house, where he would set his ear against the door or doorpost and allow his master to pierce his ear with an awl. The result would be that the servant would be literally attached to the door and symbolically be joined to his master's house. And now, we come to the real message of this commandment. If one is to come into the House of Ĕlôhîym’s, he must do so as a bond-servant and that means he must, first of all, give up his freedom. There are no rebels in Ĕlôhîym’s house. There will be no rebels in Heaven. You come humbling yourself, declaring your need for the master and your commitment to serve Him. Then He becomes your ADONAI and therefore Savior. You can’t have Him as Savior without yielding to His authority. It is both or neither. You can’t just go to Yәshua for fire insurance. He offers you only one

thing – true salvation is a covenant relationship. It is a divine exchange program. It is His life for yours. You cannot be a servant if you are clinging to your freedom (Freedom, Selfdetermination, Lack of restrictions). I know that goes against the theology of some, but nevertheless, that is the methodology of becoming a servant. If you can overcome that obstacle, then you must allow Him to "attach" you to the door of His house. No one comes into Yəhôwâh's house except by way of the DOOR! Perhaps, this is one of the reasons Yәshua said in John 10:9, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” And in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man come unto the Father, but by me." Translated (John 14:6 “The Tőrâh is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the father but through the Tőrâh” Yәhoshua said: (as the Tőrâh manifested in the flesh and as the shaliach; agent of Yahûwâh). You can’t enter into Ĕlôhîym’s house without coming through the door – Yәshua. Though many try, through man made religions and other means. Of them Yәshua said, “He that entered not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbed up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.” Thieves don’t get into heaven, beloved. Psalm 40:1-2 "I waited patiently for Yəhwôâh; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings." It is difficult to say with 100% certainty what David had in mind when he recited these words. It could have been any one of a number of events that transpired in his life, in which Ĕlôhîym's sovereignty intervened to deliver him from affliction. Then again, maybe, he was speaking on behalf of the whole house of Yisra’el who were delivered from their affliction in Egypt. Notice the terminology David employs. "I waited patiently"; Yisra’el was in bondage for four centuries. "He… heard my cry"; Ĕlôhîym heard the cry of His people (Exodus 3:7). "He brought me up out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay"; Yisra’el labored in the clay pits of Egypt making bricks for Pharaoh’s cities. And finally, "(He) set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings (steps)"; when Ĕlôhîym freed them, He took them to Horeb, the mountain of Ĕlôhîym and there He established the way in which they were to walk, the Tőrâh. The word "rock" mentioned in Psalm 40 is the Hebrew word sela‛ (not to be confused with the other Selah found in many of the Psalms.), which is defined as a craggy or lofty rock, a fortress. Perhaps that is why this word is used multiple times to speak figuratively of Ĕlôhîym. He is this rock! This word, Selah, is the same word used to describe the rock from which Yisra’el was given water to drink (Numbers 20:8-11). The talmidim Sha’ul speaks about that same rock and likens it to the Ha’Mashiyach.

He says in 1 Corinthians 10:4, “And did all drink the same Ru’ach HaKodesh drink: for they drank of that Ru’ach HaKodesh Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Mashiyach (literally, Ha’Mashiyach)." In other words, the rock in the wilderness and the rock in Psalm 40 are one and the same - that is the Ha’Mashiyach, which brings me to my next point. Though David is using language suggestive of his own experiences, as well as Yisra’el’s, could it be that he is, in fact, speaking of the Ha’Mashiyach? Considering that David is a picture of Ha’Mashiyach, I'd say that this is very likely. So then, what does this affiliation have to do with the Tőrâh of a bond-servant? my servants (avadai) David You already know that the bond-servant Tőrâh are based on the relationship between the Ĕlôhîym of Yisra’el and those He delivered from "the land of Egypt" and the "house of bondage." Hopefully, you also now see the ties between the opening passages of Psalm 40 - deliverance from bondage - and the Tőrâh of a bond-servant - "(He) set my feet" and "established my going (steps)." King David is referred to throughout the Scriptures as "my servants (avadai)." In Hebrew, the word "servant" is Eved, and should, therefore, be rendered "bond-servant or slave." If David is considered a bond-servant, it seems obvious to me that he is quite familiar with the concept of a bond-servant and that makes Psalm 40 of particular interest to us. As we said earlier, though David speaks in terms reminiscent of his own life and of the Exodus from Egypt, he is likely speaking of the TRUE ROCK in the wilderness, the Ha’Mashiyach. Coupling this assertion with the fact that, according to Ezekiel 37:24, Ha’Mashiyach is the TRUE DAVID, saying; “And David my servants (avadai) shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them,” then Psalm 40 takes on yet another interesting perspective. That is, not only is David speaking of the True Rock, Ha’Mashiyach in Psalm 40, but the True David, the Ha’Mashiyach is speaking to us through those same words! My Ears You Have Opened Psalm 40:6 "Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required." Why would David claim that Yəhwôâh did not require nor desire for the people to bring their burnt offerings and their sacrifices when the Tőrâh is full of commands for them to do just that very thing? First of all, David isn't saying this, King David Ha’Mashiyach is. Why does He say this? It goes back to something we stated earlier in this teaching. Remember that the people, because of fear, told Moshe to speak to Ĕlôhîym and then report to the people His commands. They pledged to "hear" and "obey." Yet, we know

that Ĕlôhîym already knew it was not in their heart to do so for He laments, "O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them," (Deuteronomy 5:29). So, we conclude that their willingness to obey was based, not on love for the Father, but the fear of Him. Therefore, it seems that the statements in Psalm 40 that Ĕlôhîym neither desires nor requires sacrifices speaks more about the intent of the heart with which they are given. In other words, Ĕlôhîym does not desire sacrifices given out of fear or religious obligation. He does require burnt offerings from someone whose heart is far from Him. He desires that His people serve Him simply because they love Him; not just in word and deed, but with all of their being. Now, please notice that sandwiched between these two statements in verse six, is the declaration, "mine ears hast thou opened." This is a provocative statement for it, once again, ties us to the Tőrâh of the bond-servant. If Ĕlôhîym desires that we obey Him because we love Him then it is implied that we have opened our ears to HEAR, not the words of the Tőrâh, but the MESSAGE of the Tőrâh. Thus, we "hear" and "obey." There are many who can hear, but few who obey, and consequently are unable to walk out the Tőrâh in a balanced manner. Consider that the ear, used for hearing, also contains the center of balance. When one develops an ear infection, it is almost impossible to walk straight. The same can be said for those who hear the words of the Tőrâh but miss the message. Perhaps this is why we are instructed to "Hear O Yisra’el; Yəhwôâh is one." And perhaps that is the reason Ha’Mashiyach through David says, "Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened." In other words, you have made it possible for me to, not only hear the words, but discern the message. How did He do that? The Hebrew word translated as "opened" in Psalm 40:6 (7) is Ko'ri'y'so, which should be literally interpreted as "bored open" or "pierced" as with an awl. Translation - I hear your words and understand their message because you have allowed and I have accepted to become a bond-servant - I am attached to your house. My ear is not only opened by the awl, but my ear is open to hear you because I love you. Who makes this statement? David or the Ha’Mashiyach, Yәshua? If the Ha’Mashiyach, then we have another very interesting development here. That is, the Ha’Mashiyach is saying that He also is a bond-servant. He has submitted His will to the master, the Father in heaven. As Yәshua said, "Not my will, but thine be done." (Luke 22:42) But that wasn’t the first time Yәshua said such a thing. John 6:38 “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me.” Before that in John 5:30 Yәshua said, “I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.” In The Scroll Of The Book

Psalm 40:7-8 "Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do your will, O my Ĕlôhîym: yea, your Instructions (The Hebrew word, Tőrâh) is within my heart." Immediately after the hint in verse six that Ha’Mashiyach is a bond-servant of Yəhwôâh, we find conclusive evidence that it is DEFINITELY the Ha’Mashiyach making these statements. Who else can make the claim, "In the scroll of the book it is written of me"? Not the man, King David! What scroll and what book would the writer be referring to? He has to be speaking of the Tőrâh Scroll, within which is revealed the heart of Ĕlôhîym, manifest in the person of Y’shua (Yәshua), the Ha’Mashiyach. It is the Ha’Mashiyach who then exclaims, "I delight to do your will, O my Ĕlôhîym." It is not a burden. It is not enslavement, but a delight, a joy, to do the will of the Father. This is the claim of the Ha’Mashiyach. Furthermore, He reveals that the Tőrâh has been written, not on tablets of stone but upon His heart. More than exalting the WORDS of the Tőrâh, it is the MESSAGE, the very essence of the Tőrâh that our Father (‫ א +ינו‬Avinu) ‫ב‬ desires to write upon our hearts and it is the Ha’Mashiyach who FIRST reveals this. Not My Will Jeremiah 31:31, 33 "Behold, the days come, saith Yəhwôâh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Yisra’el, and with the house of Yәhudâh. . . . But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Yisra’el; After those days, saith Yəhwôâh, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Ĕlôhîym, and they shall be my people." Obviously, there is more to this passage than meets the eye; much more than we have time or space to delve into here. Yet, I do want you to understand that it has ALWAYS been Ĕlôhîym’s intention that the Tőrâh be upon our heart because the true message of the Tőrâh can only be understood by the heart. It was always intended that the Ha’Mashiyach would be the One to write these things upon our heart because He is the One who gave the Tőrâh; moreover, He is the Tőrâh! He is the Word made flesh. And so, what is His message? Simply this: Ĕlôhîym has always desired to find those willing to give up their own freedom in order to become His bond-servant. He has always desired for those who serve Him to do so with a heart that says, "Not my will, but thine be done." And so, because we didn't get it, He became flesh and dwelt among us and showed us, by His own example, what we must become in order to hear and understand what the Master is saying. Whom The Son Sets Free John 8: 35-36 "And the servant abide not in the house for ever: but the Son abides forever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." When Yәshua made this statement, it was to a group of people who believed on him. Yet, He obviously contends that, though they hear His words, they don't perceive His

message, hence, this statement or proclamation. But what does He mean? Could it be that Yәshua is alluding to the Tőrâh of the bond-servant? "The servant abides not in the house for ever." Correct. He is released after six years of service (Exodus 21; 2). "But the son abided ever (or forever)." Is it possible that the servant, because he loves his master and attaches himself to his master's house FOREVER (Exodus 21:5-6) is actually becoming a son? John 1:12 " But as many as received him, to them gave he power (privilege, freedom) to become the sons of Ĕlôhîym , even to them that believe on his name." In other words, THE SON (Yәshua), the DOOR of Adonai’s house, provides the way and opportunity for those willing to be bond-servants, to become a SON of Ĕlôhîym. In short, if you truly want to be free, then you must give up your freedom. Ĕlôhîym does everything with man through His divine exchange program, called covenant. You must attach yourself to ADONAI 's house by way of the door - the SON (Yәshua) - and forever become an obedient servant of the Master, following His rules simply because you love Him. Then, and only then, are you free indeed! This covenant. is the covenant relationship or divine exchange. You must give up your life to receive His life. The problem with most people is that they want all the benefits and privileges and freedom of being in Ĕlôhîym’s house and being a son, but they want none of the responsibilities of sonship! They want to be in Ĕlôhîym’s house, they want fire insurance, they want prosperity, blessing, protection, healing and all that Ĕlôhîym has to offer without being attached to His house, without coming by way of the door, Yәshua, to have their ears circumcised, by giving up their rights to do as they please, so they can hear and understand what Ĕlôhîym is saying and follow Him. There is no other way. In John 7:17 Yәshua said, “If anyone desires to do His desire, he shall know concerning the teaching, whether it is from Ĕlôhîym, or whether I speak for myself.” You will never know the true teaching; you will never hear and understand the Ru’ach HaKodesh things of Ĕlôhîym and His will for your life, until you are willing to do what He tells you. Ĕlôhîym knows your heart and the motives and attitude of your heart, He discerns and when your heart is not right and you are not committed to do and obey His words, He will not reveal Himself to you in a direct and personal way. John 14:21 “He that hath my commandments, and keeps them, he it is that loves me: and he that loves me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” Yәshua doesn’t manifest Himself, reveal Himself to everyone. True belief is relationship that comes by revelation. Ĕlôhîym revealing Himself to you. In conclusion: As a servant (in reality a slave who gets no remuneration and nothing for his work), having gained his freedom, then gives it up to willing become now a bondservant, being joined to the house of his master, the relationship is then changed and in reality he becomes a son, adopted by the master and each have new responsibilities to one another. The servant is now required to serve and obey his master, and the master is required to provide, protect and care for his servant.

This is my story. I was a, slaves of sin with no hope. He willingly paid the price for us to set us free from our bondage to sin and Ha’satan. Then we, having been set free from slavery, turning and submitting our lives to serve Him, asking Him to become our ADONAI, willing give up the right of self choice to do His will and thereby come into covenant with the Father and become sons of Ĕlôhîym. Now, truly free in Mashiyach! But our freedom comes by way of covenant with Him and obedience and responsibility, not rebellion and saying, I have been set free, now I am free to choose for myself and enjoy myself to the full. You can do that, but then you will never have His best and you will never know the joys, blessing and power of sonship. Ĕlôhîym desires not servants, but sons. John 15:15 “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his master does: but I have called you friends (philos, fee'-los; literally “a friend– this is a covenant expression); for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.” Not to anyone, not to the religious crowd, not to the Sun-day morning bunch. But to those who hear and obey Him. (V.14) “Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.” Being a Bond Servant Many do not understand the role of a bond-servant in relation to our Master Yәshua. We Americans instinctively cringe at the thought of servitude, slavery, or bondage. And no wonder since our country was founded on freedom, in the very act of breaking away from servitude to the King of England. A dictionary definition of a bond servant is someone bound to labor without wages. A synonym of bond servant is slave. Now before we throw out this whole idea, let’s look at what Ĕlôhîym’s Word says about the law of the bond servant and how it might apply to us. "Now these are the judgments which you shall set before them: "If you buy a Hebrew servant, he shall serve six years; and in the seventh he shall go out free and pay nothing.” If he comes in by himself, he shall go out by himself; if he comes in married, then his wife shall go out with him. "If his master has given him a wife, and she has borne him sons or daughters, the wife and her children shall be her master’s, and he shall go out by himself.” But if the servant plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free,’ "then his master shall bring him to the judges. He shall also bring him to the door, or to the doorpost, and his master shall pierce his ear with an awl; and he shall serve him forever." (Exodus 21:1-6 The first judgments given to the children of Yisra’el (after the 10 Commandments) were the instructions about servants. But there is something interesting mentioned in verse 5: "But if the servant plainly says, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children; I will not go out free," This is a big decision, a choice for life. The judges (v. 6) were present to witness the servant’s willingness to become a bond servant to the master, his willingness to give up his freedom to the master, to work for the master and to do his will. Why would anybody not want to be set free? Who wants to be under the bondage of a master?

Tőrâh, ordinances and statutes do not make us slaves. In fact, they make us free! For example, look at America. We probably have more Tőrâh on our books than any other nation, yet we are considered one of the freest nations on the earth. Take our traffic Tőrâh, without them there would be chaos on the streets. It is easy to see the value of the Tőrâh especially when everybody obeys them. Ĕlôhîym set His Tőrâh in place for us, for our good. Ĕlôhîym wants us to obey Him, to be a servant (a bond-servant) to Him. He is our master, we are His servants. Many today want to be rulers not servants. Many large egos rule the Church and have little desire to be servants to all. However we have clear instruction in Ĕlôhîym’s Word about this very subject. "Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you shall be your servant.” And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all. "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." (Mark 10:43-45) Yәshua came to serve. "For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves. (Luke 22:27) Yәshua is our example. We are to do as He has shown us. Yәshua took the form of a bond servant. But made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond-servant, and coming in the likeness of men. (Philippians 2:7) Yәshua came to do the will of His father. Then I said, ‘Behold, I have come—In the volume of the book it is written of Me — To do Your will, O Ĕlôhîym.’ (Hebrews 10:7) We must allow Ĕlôhîym to have all authority in our lives. We do this because of our love for our Master. "You shall love Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. (Deuteronomy 6:5) The above verse (in similar form) is repeated about 14 times in the Bible. Perhaps this is important? But how do we become bond-servants to the Most High Ĕlôhîym? But Yәshua answered him, saying, "It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of Ĕlôhîym.’" (Luke 4:4)

By reading Ĕlôhîym’s Word, (all of the Scripture,. Every word that proceeds from Him is for our good; for our edification Every word of Ĕlôhîym is pure (‫ 2רו 5ה‬Tzərufa~ is tried, is pure or proven); He is a shield ‫צ פ‬ to those who put their trust in Him. (Proverbs 30:5) ‫ -ח8 +ים‬Lachosiym (to who shelter,to ‫ל ס‬ who trust) root ‫ ח8 &י‬Cho'sei'y who trust; stem root ‫ :סו‬Cha'su (trust) ‫ס‬ ‫ח‬ Every word? Does this include Ĕlôhîym’s commandments and His Tőrâh? My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are ‫ צ <ק‬Tzedek. ‫<ד‬ (Psalms 119:172) Your Tzədaka~ (5 2 5 2 + Tzidəkatəcha ) is an everlasting Tzedek And Your Tőrâh (5 ‫2תורת‬ ‫צדקתך‬ ‫ו 5 2ך‬ Vətőrâtəcha) is truth (‫ <ת‬P Emet). (Psalms 119:142) ‫אמ‬ For this is the love of Ĕlôhîym, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. (1 John 5:3) Can we be truly unburdened? "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. "For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30) How do we find rest for our souls? By taking the yoke and burden of Yәshua. But notice, these things are light (praise Ĕlôhîym). The one who is truly free has chosen to serve only Ĕlôhîym. No matter what happens, he lets his Master take care of it for him, this is freedom and peace. Submit yourself to Ĕlôhîym totally and completely. Then suddenly, your are set free. Free from the worrisome burdens that plague our everyday lives, free of the offenses taken at every turn, free to serve the Master, the Good Master. He will fight for us, He will stand in the gap for us, and He will do all for us as we submit to Him and do everything He says. A true bond-servant to Yәshua will have peace. "These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." (John 16:33) What examples are there in the Word about being bond servants of the Master? The Yisra’elites were bond-servants of Ĕlôhîym. ‘For the children of Yisra’el are servants to me; they are my servants (avadai)s whom I brought out of the land of Egypt: I am Yəhwôâh your Ĕlôhîym. (Leviticus 25:55)

Moshe was a bond-servant. Ĕlôhîym Himself says so.

‫ל8א &ן עב +י משה ב 5ל &י +י <א 5ן הוא: במדבר, יב:ז‬ ‫ מ‬P ‫כ - 2ד < 2כ ב ת נ‬ Not so with my bond-servant Moses, for he is the trusted (‫ 5ן‬P < Neeman; trustworthy, ‫נאמ‬ approved, faithful,reliable) one in all my house: Numbers, 12:7 David was a servant. I am your bond-servant; Give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies. (Psalms 119:125) Make your face shine upon your servant, and teach me your statutes. (Psalms 119:135) Your word is very pure; therefore your servant loves it. (Psalms 119:140) Yәshua was a bond-servant. "To you first, Ĕlôhîym, having raised up His bond-servant Yәshua, sent Him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from your iniquities (πονηρια poneria utter corruption, depravity, injustice (‫ ע2ל 7ה‬Avəlata~ or ‫ _ה‬a Mu'te~ (injustice); of ‫^ ו7ת‬ ‫מט‬ Ĕlôhîym’s Tőrâh)." (Acts 3:26) The talmidims were bond-servants Sha’ul, a bond-servant of Yәshua Mashiyach, called to be an talmidim, separated to the Good News of Ĕlôhîym (Romans 1:1) Sha’ul and Timothy your, bond-servants of Yәshua Mashiyach, to all the set-apart ones in Mashiyach Yәshua who are in who are in Philippi, with the overseers and attendants: : (Philippians 1:1) James, a bond-servant of Ĕlôhîym and of Yәshua Mashiyach, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad: Greetings. (James 1:1) Notice that James had no problem with saying, a bond-servant of Ĕlôhîym and of Yәshua Mashiyach. Simon Peter, a bond-servant and talmidim of Yәshua Mashiyach, to those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the Tzədaka~ of our Ĕlôhîym and Savior Yәshua Mashiyach: (2 Peter 1:1) Jude, a bond-servant of Yәshua Mashiyach, and brother of James, to those who are called, sanctified by Ĕlôhîym the Father, and preserved in Yәshua Mashiyach: (Jude 1:1)

Consider the parable of the talents. "For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, which are called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.” And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey… "After a long time Yəhwôâh of those servants came and settled accounts with them.” So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Adoni, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’ "His Adon said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Adon "He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Adoni, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’ "His Adon said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Adon.’ "Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Adoni, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed. ‘And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’ "But Adon answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed. ‘So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest. (Matthew 25:14-15, 19-27, emphasis added) Ĕlôhîym’s will is for His servants to increase in the gifts that He gives them. His will is defined in His Word, in the scriptures Perhaps, to some, obeying Ĕlôhîym’s Tőrâh seems like bondage. But remember Tőrâh give us freedom. We are made free in being a bond-servant because we put all our burdens on Him. If we fully serve Him, fully give our lives over to Him, fully desire to do His will, not ours, He becomes our Good Master who cares for and is concerned about His servants. Yәshua said to turn the other cheek. Why? Maybe, because as His servants, our Master will take care of our issues. We don’t try to fix our issues with our feeble human attempts, with our frequent misunderstandings, with our frequently misplaced anger. Our Master does. For we know Him who said, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay," says Yəhwôâh. And again, "Yəhwôâh will judge His people." (Hebrews 10:30) He will repay. We do not need to worry about it. "I have been crucified with Mashiyach; it is no longer I who live, but Mashiyach lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of Ĕlôhîym, who loved me and gave Himself for me. (Galatians 2:20). I can do all things through Mashiyach who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)

Praise Ĕlôhîym for these things; not by our reasoning, not by our strength, but through Ha’Mashiyach who lives in us. A servant’s prayer: Most High Ĕlôhîym, thank You for all You do. You are the one true Ĕlôhîym; you who are King of the Universe. Who am I that You would take notice of me? You gave your only Son to live and die for all mankind; and for me. Will you help me in my desire to be Your bond servant? Teach me You’re Way. Teach me You’re Path which is true and righteous. Teach me to be a good servant. Teach me to humble myself to allow the spirit of Yәshua Ha’Mashiyach to flow in me. May I not quench Your spirit, but instead may I honor and glorify You with all I do, with all I say, and with all I think. Most Holy One, I desire to hear You say, well done, good and faithful servant. In the name of Yәshua Ha’Mashiyach. Amein.

Citing in TDNT: 2:261, 182 A servant (θεραπων) therapon menial attendant (as if cherishing): - servant; denoting a

willing servant who serves out of respect
N.T... Comp. Rev 15:3. Often in Lxx, mostly as translation of, servant, slave, bondman. Also, when coupled with the name of a Ĕlôhîym, a worshiper, devotee. Sometimes applied to angels or prophets. Of Moshes, θεραπων (servant) κυριου (Brother) of Ĕlôhîym, Ecc 10:16. Hebrew na‛ar a boy, lad, servant in Class. And in the N.T. the word emphasizes the performance of a present service, without reference to the condition of the doer, whether bond or free. An ethical character attaches to it, as to the kindred verb θεραπευειν: service of an affectionate, hearty character, performed with care and fidelity. Hence the relation of the θεραπων therapo n is of a nobler and freer character than that o of the δου λος doulos or bond-servant. The verb is used of a physician's tendency of the υ sick. Ξενοφῶν Xenophon (mercenary) (Mem. iv. 3, 9) uses it of the g*ds taking care of men, and, on the other hand, of men's worshiping the g*ds (ii, 1. 28). See Eurip. Iph. Taur. 1105; and on heal, Mat 8:7; Luke 10:15, and on is; The Greeks, with their strong sense of personal freedom, held a rather low view of servants. They did not exalt the servant’s position, but they did have a keen understanding of various aspects involved in the servant concept. They developed a remarkable variety of terms to express different aspects of it.2 these terms naturally shade into each other and frequently it is not necessary to seek to bring out the different shades of meaning involved. But each term can be used to convey its own distinct emphasis.

Perhaps the most common was the word, “a slave and a bond-servant. “As the opposite of a man who is “free,” this term carries the thought of one who belongs wholly to his master and is obligated to do his master’s will. The early assembly found it a fitting term to express the Ru’ach HaKodesh reality that a believer belongs wholly to his heavenly ADONAI and consequently must obey Him in total submission. The term οικετης oiketes (a fellow resident) was often used as the practical equivalent of the word δου λος (cf. 1 Pet 2:18), but it is more specific and denotes “a house-slave.” It υ portrays a closer and more intimate relationship between servant and master than δου λος doulos (cf. Rom 14:4). υ Two kindred terms, μισθιος misthios and μισθωτος misthotos, both rendered “hired servant,” embody the picture of one working for pay. These self-centered terms are not used in the New Testament in connection with its “servant” teaching. Yәshua used the latter term of the inferior “hireling” as contrasted to the “good shepherd” (John 10:12– 13). Another term is θεραπων (therapon) , denoting a willing servant who serves out of respect and concern for others; it carries a note of tenderness. As a technical term it was used to denote one who rendered a service of healing (cf. the English word “therapy”). The word παις, which means “child, (The word comes from the Greek παιδαγωγέω (paidagōgeō); in which παῖς (país, genitive παιδός, paidos) means "child" and άγω (ágō) means "lead"; so it literally means "to lead the child". In Ancient Greece, παιδαγωγός was (usually) a slave who supervised the instruction of his master’s son (girls were not

publicly taught).The Latin-derived word for pedagogy: child-instruction)” was at times used of a person who was a slave (The verb originally means to take in hand. Acts 3:21); so used, the term expressed the affectionate attitude of the master toward his servant. This term is used of Mashiyach as the Son and Servant of Ĕlôhîym, the noun λατρευς originally meant one who worked for pay, rather than out of compulsion as a slave; hence he was a hired servant. But in the Septuagint and the New Testament the cognate verb (λατρευω latreuo from λατρις latris (a hired menial ;) is always used of to serve to o Ĕlôhîym) δουλευειν). He who practices deceit shall not stay within his house; he who speaks lies shall have no continuance (‫ יכון‬is more than equivalent to ‫ )נכון‬before (under) his eyes. Every morning (‫ לבקרים‬as in Psa 73:14; Isa 33:2; Lam 3:23, and ‫ ,לבקרים‬Job 7:18), when Yahûwâh shall have taken up His abode in Yeruselem , will he destroy all evil-doers (‫ רשעי‬as in Psa 119:119), i.e., incorrigibly wicked ones, wherever he may meet them upon the earth, in order that all workers of evil may be rooted out of the royal city, which is now become the city of Yahûwâh (Psalms 101:8 ).
