God made the meaning of Tet abundantly clear in the Alphabetic Verses, where he used the KeyWord
טוב (tov, S# H2896), or one of its cognates, in
13 of the 22 Alphabetic Verses corresponding to Tet. The Rabbinic tradition coheres with God's
Word, teaching that the fundamental symbolic meaning of Tet is Goodness.
Taste the Goodness of the Lord
- AV Psa 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
- AV Prov 31.18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle
goeth not out by night.
The word translated as Taste and Percieve is the verb טעם (Ta'am,
S# H2938). In both these cases, God associated this KeyWord with the primary Tet
KeyWord Tov. The first occurrence of this verb in Scripture is found in Book 9,
(I Samuel 14.24, cf. A Taste of Honey).
Ta'am means both to taste in the normal sense and also taste in the sense of test, discern, or judge.
This is the Hebrew equivalent of a "taste test." This reveals the "sharpness" of Tet, related to the
idea of the bite of a serpent.
- AV Lam 1:9 Her filthiness is in her skirts; she remembereth not her last end;
therefore she came down wonderfully: she had no comforter.
O LORD, behold my affliction: for the enemy hath magnified himself.
This word is טמאה (toomah, S# H2932). It appears mostly in Leviticus. There appears to be a
negative manifestation of the link between 9 and 3: 9 = 3 x 3, the mirror of
the The Fruit of the Spirit.
- AV Psa 111:5a He hath given meat unto them that fear him
This word is טרף (teraph, S# H2964). In the Book of Isaiah, this word appears only
in chapter 31 (Spoke 9, Cycle 2).
- AV Lam 2:9 Her gates are sunk into the ground; he hath destroyed and
broken her bars: her king and her princes are among the Gentiles: the law is no more; her
prophets also find no vision from the LORD.
This word is טבע (tava, S# H2883). In the sequence of the Psalms it first appears in
Psalm 9. It is part of the nexus of ideas relating to the intensification of the Number 3: 9 = 3 x 3.
