Spoke 12

Psalm 34: I Will Teach

Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

Psalm 34 (Spoke 12, Cycle 2)

Then the king of Assyria commanded, saying, Carry thither one of the priests whom ye brought from thence; and let them go and dwell there, and let him teach them the manner of the God of the land. Then one of the priests whom they had carried away from Samaria came and dwelt in Bethel, and taught them how they should fear the LORD.

2 Kings (Spoke 12, Cycle 1)

Lamed is the Teaching letter. Its meaning manifests with perfect clarity here on Spoke 12 of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms. But as with any passage of the three dimensional Bible, Psalm 34 can be viewed from three levels:

  • Level 1: Seen from the perspective of the Bible Wheel, it is simply a chapter of the Psalms and so resides on Spoke 19 (cf. A Cry unto God).
  • Level 2: Psalm 34 can be viewed as the 34th element of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms. As such, it resides on Cycle 2 of Spoke 12 (34 = 122).
  • Level 3: We can look at its internal alphabetic sequence - the sequence of verses - which in this case were designed by God as illustrative of the alphabet since Psalm 34 is one of the 21 Alphabetic Verses. Now the great miracle of God is that He integrated the Level 2 and Level 3 using the Lamed KeyWord Lechu.

At each level, we move down to a deeper level of structure - not unlike going from Molecules to Atoms to Quarks (subatomic particles). Thus we see God's Word exhibiting the same reiterative structure as the rest of Creation - all to His Glory.

I will start at the deepest level so we can extract the Lamed KeyWord that unlocks the whole structure. Thus we look at the Lamed verse of Psalm 34 - quoted above. Here is an interlinear translation:

The red words are all Lamed KeyWords. The central word displays how the Lamed and the Yod combine to form the word Li - meaning "for me." This is easily analyzed as:

Li (For Me) = Lamed (To/For) and Yod (Me/Mine)

This is the holographic property of Hebrew. Each Stone (individual letter) carries its own meaning into the combination with others to form Houses (Words) where the meaning of the whole is built from the integration of the parts. For example, the Letter Beyt signifies a House which reflects its grammatical function as the prefix signifying the preposition "in". Thus, the word for heart pic (Lev) is easily analyzed as:

Lev (Heart) = Lamed (To-wards) and Beyt (In-ward) = Towards the Inner

This is the meaning of Lamed Beyt - the Heart! The whole language is built like this, [cf. Father (Av), Son (Ben), and Father + Son (Aven)] and it all integrates with the structure of Scripture and the everlasting Gospel Story. Glory! Intellectual delight uniting every faculty of the soul - religious, devotional, mathematical, poetic, linguistic ... there is no end the wonders God has prepared for those who love him.

The last word in the verse is not written as a KeyWord but is based on the most fundamental of all Lamed KeyWords, the root pic (Lamad, Teach) - whence the name Lamed. This defines the essence of Spoke 12. (cf. Teach and Exhort!). It is prefixed with an Aleph to indicate the first person future, the idea of I will. The suffix indicates the second person masculine plural.

The first word of this verse is one of the most delightfully rich and surprising Lamed KeyWords. It is from the root pic (Halek) which varies but slightly from its English equivalent Walk. It is profoundly integrated with the Parsha Lech Lecha which begins with Genesis 12. This reveals a strong link between the Lamed KeyWord revealed in the Alphabet Verse of Psalm 34 (Level 3) and the Inner Cycle of Genesis (Level 2). Yet there is more! This word also appears in the opening passage of II Kings - Book 12 - in the very passage that is strongly linked to Matthew 12! This then loops back to the title of the Psalm we are studying - Psalm 34 - which reads:

A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.

The concept of "driving away" is a very Lamed-like action that links to numerous threads running through the various levels of Spoke 12. In your study you will see this manifest in a high frequency of "casting out" as in Revelation 12 and Matthew 12, and the "driving out" of Avram in Genesis 12. But the key is the phrase "and he departed" which in Hebrew is pic (V'Yelach), cognate with Lechu, the Lamed KeyWord given in the Lamed verse of Psalm 34. This means that the Lamed KeyWord from Level 3 in Psalm 34 loops back to the title of Psalm 34 on Level 2.

But the connection runs deeper still. Psalm 34 is the only Psalm to contain this exact Hebrew word V'Yelach, and the first appearance of this word is found in - can you believe it? - Genesis 12.4 when it says Avram departed after receiving the command "Lech Lecha"!

It requires a certain mental discipline to trace these threads through all the different Inner Cycles and Alphabetic Verses without getting lost. Here is an image I hope will help. It shows how the Lamed KeyWords link on all three levels. Note the double link to Genesis 12 and the loopback from the Lamed Verse of the Inner Wheel of Psalm 34 (Level 3) to its title on Level 2.

Here are the details from Levels 2 and 3:
