Spoke 13

I Chronicles, Habakkuk, Philemon

Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions. I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

Psalm 35.17 (Inner Cycle: Spoke 13, Cycle 2)

O LORD, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear! even cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save! Why dost thou shew me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me: and there are that raise up strife and contention.

Habakkuk 1.2f (Bible Wheel: Spoke 13, Cycle 2)

How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved.

Psalm 13.1f (Inner Cycle: Spoke 13, Cycle 1)

How long, LORD? wilt thou be angry for ever? shall thy jealousy burn like fire?

Psalm 79:5 (Inner Cycle: Spoke 13, Cycle 4)

Searching the entire KJV for all verses containing the set {"how long", Lord, wilt, thou} yields ten verses. Of these ten, three are directed towards humans (Ex. 10.3, 1 Sam. 16.1, Jer. 31.22) and one is spoken by an angel (Zech. 1.12). This leaves six verses that record the plea of a servant of God. Three of these six verses lie on Spoke 13 of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms, and one lies on Spoke 13 of the Bible Wheel. These verses are quoted above. The remaining two verses (Psalm 80.4 & 89.46) bear no relation to the Number 13. The table lists the four passages quoted above. The last columns displays the indices using modnotation to make the relation to the Number 13 clear:

How Long, O Lord?
Psalms CycleBible WheelSpokeCycle
Psalm 13 131
Psalm 35Book 35132
Psalm 79 134

This correlation is not as strong as many we have seen because there are two related verses that do not lie on the dominant Spoke, but it caught my attention for a couple reasons. The dominant idea of patience or endurance of the saints also appears on Spoke 13 fo the Inner Wheel of Revelation (vs.10):

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

The significance of this "coincidence" is amplified by the word translated as patience, (Hupomonei). This is from the Mayim KeyWord (Meno, Abide/Remain), which also appears in Verse 13 of the Love Chapter.

Furthermore, Revelation 13 is deeply integrated with the Book of Habakkuk and the meaing of the Letter Mayim, as discussed in the article Beast from the Sea (Rev 13), so we see a kind of loop where Psalm 35 links to Revelation 13 which links to Book 35 which links back to Psalm 35. This figure should make this clear:

Of course, there is a lot more going on than just the integration of these three portions of Scripture.
