Psalm 100 - To Aleph!
1 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.
2 Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.
3 Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves;
we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be
thankful unto him, and bless his name.
5 For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
Psalm 100 (Spoke 12, Cycle 5)
O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man
that trusteth in him.
Psalm 34 (Spoke 12, Cycle 2)
The highlighted words form part of the KeyLink between Psalm 34 and Book 34 (Nahum):
|KeyLink: The Lord is Good to them that trust Him!|
|Psalm 34Book 34 (Nahum)|
Psalm 100 is not part of the KeyLink because it doesn't contain the other component (trust),
but it does display its central theme.
There is an ancient tradition recorded in the Bahir that gives great insight into the fundamental Lamed
KeyWord (Lo, No/Not).
I quote from Aryeh Kaplan's translation of The Bahir (Weiser, 1989, Section 141, p.52):
What are the Ten Sayings? The first is the Highest Crown (Keter, cf. GR 620).
Blessed and praised be its name and its people.
Who are its people?
They are Israel. It is thus written (Psalm 100:3), "Know that the Lord is God. He made us, and
not (Lo) we, His people." [Lo is spelled Lamed Alef and can be read, "to
Alef.] The verse then reads, "to Alef are we." [It is our
duty] to recognize and know the Unity of Unities, who is unified in all His
The Unity of Unities, who is unified in all his Names refers to the Alpeh KeyWord Echad (One) and the
Unification of the Names refers to the recital of the Shema which has been revealed to be a
linguistic holograph the unifies the Greek title of God The Father with thw two fundamental
Hebrew Names YHVH and Elhoim, as discussed at length in the
Unity Holograph article.
"To Aleph" means to Elohim (God). It is the sectret heart
of the meaning of Lo which is basis the phrase "Thou shalt not ..." in the Ten Commandments.
The number of Letters in the Ten Commandments relates to Lo through the identity
Crown (Keter) = 620 = 20 x 31 (Lo).
The word Lo encodes both the "how" and the "why" of following the commandments of God! Why follow the commandments?
Because they lead (Lamed) to Aleph (God). How do we follow the commandments? We
look to (Lamed) Aleph (God)! This is all amplified in the Second Commandment when the Lord said:
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is
in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy
God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto
the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
It is here in the Second Commandment that God divides
(Number 2) between
those who hate Him and those who love Him. The promise to those who love him is actually two
words in Hebrew: Unto thousands, unto those that love me:
In both cases, the word written forms the acronym (Lo) which may be
understood as "To Aleph." It is particularly interesting that the phrase "unto thousands" is in fact
Unto Alephim! There are great and mighty teachings in these letters.
