Job, Matthew, I John
For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for
Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as
brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou
shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
Inner Wheel: Spoke 18, Cycle 3
|Strongs' 2nd Entry for Tsedek|
1b) righteousness (in government)|
1b1) of judges, rulers, kings
1b2) of law
1b3) of Davidic king, Messiah
1b4) of Jerusalem as seat of
1b5) of God's attribute
The fundamental Tsaddi KeyWord
(Tsedek, Righteousness) governs many of the primary themes of Spoke 18,
as documented in such articles as:
In Strongs' entry for this word (S# H6664), the second definition deals specifically with
righteousness in goverment as shown in the box on the right. God displayed the application of Tsedek
to the idea of civil government in the quote above from
Spoke 18, Cycle 3 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah
(62 = 183, cf. Modular Notation). That passage is rich in Tsaddi KeyWords, as discussed in
the Inner Wheel article on Isaiah 62.
Tsedek is the root of two of the great events of the Eighteenth Century -
the American and French revolutions for just government.
The American Revolution for Just Government
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that
they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable rights; that
among these, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure
these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers
from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes
destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it,
and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and
organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect
their safety and happiness.
American Declaration of Independence 
I first began documenting the correlation between the Centuries since Christ and the
Spokes of the Bible Wheel,
I was constantly astounded and filled with awe at nearly every turn as I watched the panoply of history
dove-tail with the hundreds of articles I had already published on this site. But there were also some major
events that did not immediately fit with my understanding of anything I had written.
This was the case with the major revolutions
of the eighteenth century which stand at the forefront of any survey of the history of that time. I noted the
revolutions on the sidebar (since they clearly were primary events), but didn't write anything about
them because I had no insight into their relation to Spoke 18. My habit is to
report only on those things that are so obvious a child could not miss them.
God flipped on the light when I was reading Charles Van Doren's
History of Knowledge
[W]e will never forget the new ideas about just government
that were advanced and fought for during the revolutions of the eighteenth century in England,
America, and France.
Just Government! Tsedek! Of course, it was all now perfectly clear and obvous. I initially missed
the relation between the revolutions and Spoke 18 because I was thinking only about the idea of "revolution"
itself, and had not considered the causes and purposes of the revolutions.
The Constitution and the Bill of Rights
The Eyes of the United States are turned upon this [Constiutional] Assembly and their
Expectations raised to a very anxious Degree. May God Grant that we may be able
to gratify them, by establishing a wise and just Government.
George Mason from the Constitutional Convention, 1787
A bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on
earth, general or particular; and what no just government should refuse, or rest
Thomas Jefferson in letter to James Madison, 1787
The great concern of the framers of the Constitution of the United States of America was the establishment
of a just government. They come to the emminently practical solution the division of powers into three
competing branches - Legislative, Judicial, and Executive - thereby countering the otherwise inevitable
consolidation of all power in a sinlge hand.
Many thought that the Constitution would be sufficient to ensure the rights of the people, but Thomas
Jefferson and others strongly disagreed, and the Bill of Rights was born. All of this embodies
the primary meaning of Tsaddi as
(Tsedek, Righteousness). This is the endless wonder
revealed in the Bible Wheel and its integration with the Hebrew Alphabet. The Bible is God's Word -
it contains everything, from the plain message of Salvation through Faith in Christ to the
ebbs and flows of all history. It is all the Work of God.
