Spoke 18

Ten Righteous?

Genesis 18 Job

And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.

Genesis 18.17f

Genesis 18 exhibits two of the primary symbolic meanings of the eighteenth letter Tsaddi with extreme clarity. God explains His reason for speaking with Abraham in terms of the Tsaddi KeyWords Tsavah (Command) and Tsadek (Righteousness), the latter then defining the essence of their dialog:

And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein? That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?

And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes. And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes: Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And he said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it.

Abraham continues questioning until God promises to save Sodom and Gommorah if He finds a mere ten righteous men. The significance of this theme of Righteousness found here in Genesis 18 is greatly amplified when we see that the distribution of the word "righteous" is significantly maximized in Genesis 18, as shown in the graph below:

It is extremely important to realized what is going on here. The meaning of Tsaddi is thoroughly established in the alphabetic verses as discussed in the introduction to Spoke 18. It integrates with the great themes of the books found thereon as discussed in such articles as Jesus Christ the Righteous (I John), and even plays a central role in the divine integration of Threads 1 & 2 with the links between Isaiah 40 and Matthew, as explained in the Inner Wheel article The Gospel Goes Forth!. Such glory! Yet we have just begun. The fundamental question asked of God by Abraham - Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked? - touches the heart of Book 18, the Book of Job, as discussed in the article Righteous Job.

Yet there is still more. Genesis 18 opens with the appearance of "three men" to Abraham:

And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day; And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground, And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:

Scripture declares that the Lord (singular) appeared unto Abraham who saw three men whom he addressed using the singular "My Lord"! Note that this follows the same pattern seen in the Great Commision when Jesus taught us to baptize in the name (singular) of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. It is impossible to conclude anything but that these Three Men are a Theophany - an appearance of God - that is unique in that it reveals the Holy Trinity! And why is this so utterly astounding? This Theophany of the Trinity appears here on Cycle 18 in the structure of Genesis - it integrates with the threefold witness given by Almighty God in the Spoke 18 KeyLinks based on 1 John and Matthew - i.e. the divine integration of the Johannine Comma and the Great Commission, the latter itself being a manifestation of the fundamental force of Tsaddi as the essence of the command to Go Forth! There is no end to the wonder of our God - His ways are higher than the heavens yet are plain and simple and clear as day to all who have eyes to see! Glory to His Holy Name! Endless Glory! Give Him everlating praise for the perfection of His Holy Word and His gift to us - Jesus Christ the Righteous!. Oh bend the knee to the Righteous Lord!
