Spoke 4 - Dalet: A Day for a Year

And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.

Numbers 32:13 (Spoke 4, Cycle 1)

The Hebrew name of the Book of Numbers is במדר (B'Midbar, In the wilderness), taken from the first verse. That this is the apt title for the book is evident from the distribution of the phrase in the wilderness throughout the Bible. It records the forty years the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness. The reason for this exact number is given in Numbers 14.33f:

And your children shall wander in the wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms, until your carcases be wasted in the wilderness. After the number of the days in which ye searched the land, even forty days, each day for a year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years, and ye shall know my breach of promise.

Numbers 14.33f (Spoke 4, Cycle 1)

The exact phrase ("each day for a year") [Verify] is found in exactly one other verse of the Bible, in Ezekiel on Spoke 4:

For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.

Ezekiel 4.9f (Spoke 4, Cycle 2)

We have the KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Each Day For A Year
NumberschainEzekiel

The content of this KeyLink is temporal, which further integrates with the Fourth Day of Creation, when God made the sun, moon and stars for "signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years." The pattern established in the Days of Creation manifests in the geometric structure of the Holy Word! The link between the Fourth Day and the Fourth Spoke is very strong, manifesting also in the Book of Galatians (cf. Four Weak and Beggarly Elements).

This also integrates with the Inner Cylce of Matthew, where we see Jesus in the wilderness forty days and nights in Matthew 4, corresponding to the forty years Israel wandered in the wilderness. Thus we see the principle of "a day for a year" which was established in the Spoke 4 KeyLink manifesting in the link between the chapter sequence of Matthew and the Canon! There is also a deep integration with the Inner Cycle of Genesis, with the primary theme of Numbers - wandering through the wilderness - originating in Genesis 4 with the debut of the word נוע (Nuwa, Fugitive/Wander, S# H5128), used by God in the verse at the head of the page. Endless wonder!
