Spoke 1

Psalms 1 chain Blessed is the Man

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1

The First Psalm opens with the Aleph KeyWord (Ashri, Blessed). God used exactly the same word to open the first verse of the great alphabetic Psalm 119Note 1:

a: Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD.

The word Ashri is extremely well established by Scripture as an Aleph KeyWord. As discussed below, it appears in two other alphabetic verses. This means that the order of the chapters of the Psalms follows the pattern established in the verses explicitly built on the pattern of the Hebrew alphabet.

The obvious thematic unity of these verses further manifests in two KeyLinks. Searching all seven versions for all verses that mention the "law of the Lord" within one verse of "blessed" yields exactly two verses, both which are quoted above. We have the Keylink (AV stands for Alphabetic Verses):

KeyLink: Blessed by Law of the Lord
Psalms ( )chainAVPsalm 119( a )

The word Law is the Tav KeyWord pic (Torah) which means much more than what is conveyed by the English word Law. It comes from the root pic (yarah) which means to teach, to instruct, to show the way. It also means to shoot and arrow. The important point is that Torah is not always to be taken as synonymous with the Law that kills by conviction of sin. It has a much broader connotation.

Another KeyLink is found by searching for all verses that contain the words blessed, walk*, and way:

KeyLink: Blessed, Walk, Way
Psalms ( )chainAVPsalm 119( a )

The significance of Ashri as an Aleph KeyWord is seen in the fact that the Lord used it in two other alphabetic Psalms. It is appears in the second Aleph verse of Psalm 119:

b: Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

Likewise, Ashri is the Aleph KeyWord used in Psalm 112Note 2:

: Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

The words written in the Aleph verse of Psalm 112 are nearly identitical to those of Psalm 1:

Psalms ( )AVPsalm 112( )

Blessed is the man that


Ashri HaAish Asher

Blessed is the man


Ashri Aish

Note that all three of the words that open Psalm 1 (sans the defininite article Ha prefixed to Aish) begin with Aleph, so the First Psalm opens with an echo of Aleph Aleph Aleph = = 111, which is the nweight of the Letter Aleph itself. Furthermore, (Asher, "that") is used in the great name of God "I AM THAT I AM" which forms a perfect 111 acrostic, as discussed in the Gematria Reference Article 543.

Yet there is more. Both Psalms ( ) and Psalms 112 ( ) speak of delighting in God's Law. Searching the entire Bible for all verses that use the phrase "Blessed is the man" within one verse of delight* yields exactly these two verses. We have another KeyLink:

KeyLink: Blessed is the man who delights in God's Law
Psalms ( )chainAVPsalm 112( )

Consider what this means! Psalms 1 is linked to two alphabetic Psalms by three KeyLinks! And the essence of the links teaches us the the way to be blessed. Praise God who has shown us His Holy Way.

1) The subscript "a" indicates that this is the first of the eight Aleph verses found in Psalm 119.

2) In Psalm 112 there are two letters per verse.
