Spoke 15 - Samek

Isaiah 59 chain Book 59 (James)

Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.

Isaiah 59:15 (Inner Wheel: Spoke 15, Cycle 3)

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

AV Psalm 34:14 (Samek)

Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

AV Psalm 37:27 (Samek)

Samek KeyPhrase
sur m'ra
(depart from evil)

The Samek KeyPhrase "sur m'ra" (depart from evil) appears in a total of four books of the Bible (Job 4x, Ps 2x, Pro 5x, Isa 1x). Both occurrences in the Psalms are in Alphabetic Verses corresponding to Samek (quoted above), and the one occurrence in Isaiah is in the 59th chapter which is on Spoke 15, Cycle 3 when Isaiah is viewed as an Inner Wheel. It corresponds to the Book of James on the Bible Wheel. This correlation, and the importance of good works in James is discussed in Isaiah 59 - James: Works Righteousness).

The Samek verse of AV Psalm 34:14 is quoted in 1 Peter (Spoke 16, Cycle 3) in conjunction with his unique citation of the verse that follows, namely AV Psalm 34:15 "The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous." This means that though the occurrence of sur m'ra in Isaiah 59 is not a KeyLink between elements of the Bible Wheel as a whole, it is a true KeyLink between the Alphabetic Verses and the internal structure of Isaiah when viewed as an Inner Wheel. In other words, this link shows a direct correlation between the order of the Alphabetic Psalms and the order of Spokes on the Inner Wheel of Isaiah.

The correlation with James (Spoke 15, Cycle 3) is so evident we need cite only one example to remind ourselves of the "flavor" of his great epistle. Words added from the Samek Alphabetic Verses are in red bold:

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness [depart from evil], and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. But be ye doers of the word [do good], and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed. James 1:21ff (Spoke 15, Cycle 3)

"Naughtiness" no longer carries the connotation of evil it did in the year 1611. The Greek word it translates is kakia (from kakos = evil), which seems to be of imitative origin from the sound of gagging on, or trying to vomit, something vile. It seems to relate to kaka (or caca) which means "excrement" in many languages.
