Genesis 12: Lech Lecha
Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country,
and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew
thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and
make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless
thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
The integration of Genesis 12 with the Hebrew alphabet is truly astounding. Genesis 12 is a Hebrew
(weekly reading) called Lech Lecha - taken from the highlighted words above. Here we see the
essence of Lamed - God goading Avram to get up and go - now!
In Hebrew the words Lech and Lecha look identical
except for vowel points. The repetition intensifies the command to go. This all integrates with
the grammatical and symbolic meaning of Lamed - cf. Lamed
This Parsha is profoundly integrated with the Lamed KeyWord found in the Alphabetic Psalm 34:
Come, ye (Lechu) children, and I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
This is an integration between Level 3 (Inner Cycle of Verses in Psalm 34) and Level 2 (Inner Cycle of
Chapters in Genesis (cf. Three Levels). This further integrates with
the Bible Wheel (Level 1) in the appearance of Lechu in the opening passage of II Kings - which itself is
linked to the Inner Cycle of Matthew (cf. Matthew 12: Baalzebub). Here
is an image of a few of the links between all three levels of the 3D Bible:
These links are discussed more fully in the
article Psalm 34: I Will Teach where the
Lamed KeyWord Lechu found.
