1 Samuel: Teaching the Good and Upright Way
And Samuel said unto the people, Fear not: ye have done all this wickedness:
yet turn not aside from following the LORD, but serve the LORD with all your heart; And turn ye not aside:
for then should ye go after vain things, which cannot profit nor deliver; for they are vain. For the LORD will
not forsake his people for his great name's sake: because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.
Moreover as for me, God forbid that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you:
but I will teach you the good (tov) and the right way: Only fear the LORD, and serve
him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
1 Samuel 12:20ff (Spoke 9, Cycle 1)
When I came upon this passage, the Tet verse of Psalm 25 immediately leapt to mind:
- AV Psa 25:8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
I was stunned, and immediately searched the entire Bible for every verse that contains the words teach and good.
They appear together in only seven verses, which includes the two above and another pair from the Tet verses from the great
Alphabetic Psalm 119:
- AV Psa 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge: for I have believed thy commandments.
- AV Psa 119:68 Thou art good, and doest good; teach me thy statutes.
Samuel's promise at
this key juncture in the history of Israel – the establishment of their first mortal
king – is linked directly to a primary theme that God revealed in three Tet Alphabetic Verses! But there is more.
The exact words that Samuel used in his promise are found in one and only one other verse
of the entire Bible – the Tet verse
of Psalm 25! The four Hebrew words they share are listed in the table. This also forms a KeyLink in English, which is confirmed by
searching for the set (teach, good, *right, way) [Verify].
We have therefore a supernatural Alphabetic KeyLink from the
Tet verse of Psalm 25 to the Ninth Book that is based on the primary symbolic meaning of Tet as Goodness
and placed at a critical articulation point in the history of Israel! This is the endless wonder of the Divine Perfection of
God's most excellent Word. There is no limit to the glory of His Wisdom!
