Spoke 4

Psalm 4 chain 4th Mitzvah chain 4th Seal

Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. ... I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety.

Psalm 4

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

Fourth Commandment

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Fourth Seal

Rest, Sleep, and Death

The concepts of Rest, Sleep, and Death are all subsumed in the category defined by the Number 4. This is exemplified in the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest) and the Fourth Seal of the Apocalypse (Death). It is interesting that in Psalm 3, David says "I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me" integrating with the Resurrection on the Third Day, whereas here in Psalm 4 he simply says he will lay down and sleep.

The word translated as "still" is the Dalet KeyWord pic (Dammam) which means silence, still, or struck dumb. I believe this is an obvious cognate with the English "dumb." God used this root as a KeyWord in the Dalet verse of the Alphabetic Psalm 37:

Psalm 37.7 [Dalet]: Rest in the LORD [Dom L'YHVH], and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

This is discussed in context in the Dalet Alphabetic Verses article.

The word "dwell" - yeshab - first occurs in Genesis 4, along with the whole series of Dalet concepts of Birth, Death, Door and Sin.

Perfect Peace

We also have a profound connection with Isaiah 26 (Spoke 4, Cycle 2 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah) which links to a whole host of Spoke 4 themes:

Psalm 4Isaiah 26
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

The word translated as "mind" in Isaiah 26 is from the root yetser (S# H3336) which usually means formation. Its relation to the Number 4 is discussed in the Isaiah 26 article Perfect Peace.

Dwelling in Peace and Safety

This thematic link between Psalm 4 and Cell 26 of Isaiah's Inner Wheel then manifests in a KeyLink to Ezekiel in Cell 26 of the Bible Wheel. Searching the entire KJV for all verses containing (peace, dwell, safe*) [Verify] yields two verses, Psalm 4.8 and Ezekiel 34.25

KeyLink: Dwelling in Peace and Safety
Psalm 4Book 26 (Ezekiel)
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

This is an extremely strong KeyLink. There are four words in common between the two passages, but not all of them are need to form a KeyLink. Any one of these four sets yields a KeyLink between these verses:

Each of these sets forms a KeyLink and they are all based on the fundamental Dalet Theme of Rest that integrates with both the Fourth Commandment and the Fourth Seal. Such is the infinite Wisdom of Almighty God!

A Covenant of Peace

Yet there is still more. The supernatural design continues to cascade through the Wheel and the Wheels within the Wheel. The phrase "covenant of peace" forms a KeyLink between Numbers and Ezekiel, as discussed in A Covenant of Peace:

KeyLink: A Covenant of Peace
Book 4 (Numbers)Book 26 (Ezekiel)
Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace: And he shall have it, and his seed after him, even the covenant of an everlasting priesthood; because he was zealous for his God, and made an atonement for the children of Israel. Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

This Covenant of Peace was established by the death of the Lamb of God, refered to in Daniel 9.26:

And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

We have the identity:

This is the everlasting Gospel, eternally encoded by God in the intrinsic alphanumeric structure of the Greek and Hebrew languages and engraved in the geomtric structure of His Holy Word! Endless Glory!
