Dukes of Edom

The Hebrew pic (Aluph, S# H0441) means Leader or Ruler. It is translated as Duke 43 times in Genesis 36 where the thirty-two "dukes of Edom" are listed, duke being a Middle English word derived from the Latin dux, denoting a leader, ruler, or commander. This root appears in many English words such as induce (to lead on, urge), produce (bring forth for display, exhibit), and seduce (to lead astray). Most modern versions of the Bible translate alluph in these verses as chief, an exception being the NRSV which translates it as clan because the ruler of the clan or tribe was also called the ruler of thousands (thousand being a literal meaning of Eleph). The distribution shows how this Aleph KeyWord


Alpha and Omega

The Greek Alpha corresponds to the Hebrew Aleph. The first mention of Alpha and Omega in the plain text of Scripture is in the first chapter of the last book, i.e. Spoke 1 of the Inner Wheel of Revelation. We read Revelation 1 (vs. 8):

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

The House of the Lord

God marked both Isaiah Chapters Two and Three with the first mention of the Second and Third Letters, respectively. Exactly the same phenomenon is seen in the Second and Third Chapters of Matthew (see below). Case in point, Beyt first appears here in Isaiah 2.2:

And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD'S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

Note that this integrates also with the Giving of the Law in Book 2 and the the of the Law in Romans 2.

Bethlehem, the House of Bread

God marked both Matthew Chapters Two and Three with the first mention of the Second and Third Letters, respectively. Exactly the same phenomenon is seen in the Second and Third Chapters of Isaiah (see above). Case in point, Beyt first appears here in Matthew 2, transliterated in the name of the Lord's nativity town:

Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,

This also is the first mention of "east" which coheres with its coordinated debut in the Second Chapter of both Genesis and Isaiah.

Matthew 2 also contains the first mention of the Greek pic (Oikos, House):

And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

The Symbol of the Rod

The Rod is a symbol of the Word (which is maximised on Spoke 2) - it derives from the Second Geometric Contruct, the Line, and manifests in the symbol of the Word as the two-edged Sword. The Rod first appears in the Second Book, (Exodus 4.2):

And the LORD said unto him, What is that in thine hand? And he said, A rod. And he said, Cast it on the ground. And he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from before it. And the LORD said unto Moses, Put forth thine hand, and take it by the tail. And he put forth his hand, and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand:

Very similar language is found in the opening verses of Jeremiah (Spoke 2, Cycle 2):

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

Note that God identifies the Rod as a symbol of His Word, and that He used this symbol in calling both the Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jeremiah. This results in a KeyLink between Exodus and Jeremiah based on the set ("a rod", what, Lord):

KeyLink The Rod of the Word

Likewise, in the sequence of the Psalms, the Rod first appears in the Second Psalm - the great Prophecy of the Second Person, God the Son:

I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Finally, the Rod first appears in Revelation 2 when Christ quotes Psalm 2.

Reward (Gamal and Gamul)

The first mention of any root cognate with Gimel in Isaiah appears in Isaiah 3, where we find both roots pic (Gamal, S# H1580) and pic (Gamul, S# H1576). We read (Isaiah 3.9f):

The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded [Gamal] evil unto themselves. Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him: for the reward [Gamul] of his hands shall be given him.

Note that the word translated as "shew" (Hagid) makes its coordinated debut with Genesis in Chapter 3.

Camel (Gamal)

The literal meaning of the name of the Third Letter makes its debut in Matthew 3:

In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

The "girdle" mentioned here also makes its coordinated debut with Genesis and Isaiah in Chapter 3.

The Door [Genesis 4 and Revelation 4]

The first mention of a Door in Scripture appears in Genesis 4:

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.

The last mention of a Door in Scripture appears in Revelation 4:

After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.

The word "door" used in Genesis 4 is Petach, a synonym of Dalet, as discussed in the Revelation 4 article. The distribution of the English words Door and Gate are greatly maximized on Spoke 4.

Dalet the Door [Isaiah 26]

The first mention of the word Dalet in Isaiah appears in Isaiah 26, corresponding to Ezekiel (Spoke 4, Cycle 2). This is an example of the alphabet integrating with both the chapter sequence of Isaiah and its structure as an image of the Bible Wheel. We read Isaiah 26.19:

Thy dead men shall live, together with my dead body shall they arise. Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust: for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead. Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast.

The reference to the resurrection of the dead forms a very strong KeyLink between Isaiah 26 and Ezekiel.

Hovei! Woe!

The letter Heh is used throughout the world, exactly the same way as in Hebrew, to draw attention. We all say Hey, look at that! The negative side of this is the interjective cry of woe, Hovei. Though it makes its debut in Isaiah 1, the distrution of this Heh KeyWord is greatly maximized in Isaiah 5.

Adam's Family [Genesis 5]

The first geneology is found in Genesis 5, corresponding to the symbolic meaning of Heh as Family Life (cf. Well With Thee).

The God Who Sees

Genesis 16 containts the first mention of Ayin in the sense of a fountain of water:

And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.

This a Hebrew debut - in English the word "fountains" first appears in the judgement of Genesis 7 but the underlying Hebrew word is M'ayin.

The miracle of God is seen in the divine name revealed here - YHVH Roi, meaning the God who sees - in perfect integration with the primary meaning of Ayin as Eye. Glory!

The Eyes of the Lord

The Ayin verse of Alphabetic Psalm 34 is quoted in one and only one verse in all the Bible - 1 Peter on Spoke 16!:

This is an astounding KeyLink from the larg-scale structure of Scripture directly to the alphabetic verses. The themes of the Eyes of God and the Shepherd are extremely strong on Spoke 16, and naturally integrate with the literal meaning of Ayin.

Eye of a Needle

Matthew 19 contains the first and only mention of the literal name of the Nineteenth Letter in the Book of Matthew. This means that three letters - Beyt, Gimel, and Quph - make their debut in the chapters corresponding to their position in the alphabet.

Symbol of Flesh

Genesis 19 and Revelation 19 are linked together by the theme of Flesh.

Physical Manifestation

This theme manifests clearly in Psalm 19.


Literal: Head, Poverty
Symbolic: Head, First, Chief, Health, Physician, Word (Rhema), Spirt (Ruach)

Poverty (Book 20)

Most scholars take the meaning of pic (Reysh, Poverty) as pic (Rosh, Head). But the literal meaning of Reysh is Poverty, and this word appears in one and only one book book of all the Bible, Proverbs - Book 20! - where it appears six times! This is very strong evidence of the divine design of the order of the Canon in harmony with the content of the text.

Debut of Health (Genesis 20)

Genesis 20 contains the first occurrence of the root (Ropha, To Heal). This integrates with the great Spoke 20 theme of Health (
