I'm looking and underlining the Alphabetic words in Lamentations to learn them in case I find them in other books or chapters.

A good way to learn the BibleWheel pattern is to start looking in the Alphabetic books and chapters such as Lamentations.

Here are my thoughts on this book as I look into it.

אֵיכָה Aicah - How is the title and the first word in Lamentations. Aicah is both associated with the #1 because it is an Aleph word and #3:


Genesis 3:9 (http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Gen&c=3&v=9&t=KJV#conc/9)
And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where אַיֶּֽכָּה [art] thou?
Where and How vary in the vowel marks.

Looking at the verses in Lamentations, don't forget to look at other patterns than the alphabetic words. Check this out:

Lamentations 1:11 (http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Lam&c=1&t=KJV&q=lamentations#conc/11)
All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their pleasant things for meat to relieve the soul: see, O LORD, and consider; for I am become vile.

כָּל־עַמָּהּ - All her people: All is the alphabetic word. But People is related to the #11 because it is a multiple of 11. The sum of עם `am is 110.

Excellent observation. I have noticed some pretty intriguing links between the Hebrew names of the first few books with the chapter sequence of Genesis.

The Hebrew name of Exodus, is Shemot (Names). This word first occurs in Genesis 2:
Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names (shemot) to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
Likewise, the Hebrew name of Leviticus is Vayiqra (And he called), taken from the first line:
Leviticus 1:1 And the LORD called (vayiqra) unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying,
And when is the first time this word is used to describe God's call to a human? Genesis 3!
Genesis 3:9 And the LORD God called (vayiqra) unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?
The word vayiqra also appears in Genesis 1 when God gave names to things like "And God called the light day" - but the first time that God used it in reference to his call to a human being is in Genesis 3. This means that Gen 3:9 contains that first occurrence of the names of the first two books on Spoke 3.

The pattern is not so obvious in Genesis 4, but there is a strong correlation with Numbers (Book 4). Genesis 4 contains the first occurrence of the word
nuah which means "wanderer" (translated as "fugitive" in the KJV):
Genesis 4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive (nuah) and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that findeth me shall slay me.
The events of Genesis 4 prophetically anticipate the content of Book 4, Numbers, which is explained as follows:
Numbers 32:13 And the LORD'S anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander (nuah) in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation, that had done evil in the sight of the LORD, was consumed.
I could go on, but I don't have time right now. Obviously, this is an extremely rich field for research! I hope others will contribute their observations.

Could it be that the verse 14 in Genesis 4 has something to do with the word Nuah?

Lamentations 1:16 (http://www.blueletterbible.org/Bible.cfm?b=Lam&c=1&v=1&t=KJV#conc/16)
For these [things] - עַל־אֵלֶּה I weep; mine eye - עֵינִי, mine eye - עֵינִי runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.

Notice the eye an Ayin word is mentioned but the verse starts with For these [things] - עַל־אֵלֶּה. So I pick up the hint that there may be more than one alphabetic word in the alphabetic verses.

That is exactly correct. Many alphabetic verses have more than one KeyWord. For example:
Lamentations 2:8 The LORD hath purposed (chashab) to destroy the wall (chamah) of the daughter of Zion: he hath stretched out a line, he hath not withdrawn his hand from destroying: therefore he made the rampart (cheyl) and the wall (chamah) to lament; they languished together.
Here we see three KeyWords. The primary KeyWord (the first word in the verse) is chashab. The second one, which occurs twice, is chamah - a major Chet KeyWord that forms an Alphabetic KeyLink with Amos (Spoke 8, Cycle 2) as discussed in the article called The Lord Standing upon a Wall (http://biblewheel.com/Wheel/Spokes/Chet_Wall.asp). This is truly amazing - here is an old wood carving depicting the unique content of Amos which is linked to the fundamental Chet KeyWord chamoth (wall):

Amos 7:7 Thus he shewed me: and, behold, the Lord stood upon a wall (chomah) made by a plumbline, with a plumbline in his hand. 8 And the LORD said unto me, Amos, what seest thou? And I said, A plumbline. Then said the Lord, Behold, I will set a plumbline in the midst of my people Israel: I will not again pass by them any more: 9 And the high places of Isaac shall be desolate, and the sanctuaries of Israel shall be laid waste; and I will rise against the house of Jeroboam with the sword.

Yes, the alphabetic passages are a goldmine of Alphabetic KeyWords. There is much to profit from this study.

Very good gilgal! Yes, not only the first Hebrew word in the acrostic begins with the corresponding Hebrew letter but the entire verse can provide several connected insights that relate to the letter.

Right on the money! As Richard also illustrates, there can be more than one alphabetic keyword within an alphabetic verse. I have shown similar examples, just like when an acrostic verse anticipates a keyword that begins with the following letter.

Oh, ok. I thought you were referring to other connections of the kind that relate the name of the book to the corresponding chapter in Genesis (or other Inner Cycle).
There are other links, but I thought you already knew about them from reading those articles. For example, the two words "Hebrew" and "Melchizadek" make a joint debut in Genesis 14 which corresponds to Spoke 14 where we find the explanation of Melchizadek in the Book of Hebrews.

And there are other more subtle connections where the first occurrence of a KeyWord linked to a central theme appears. For example, the first occurrence of the Resh Keyword "rapha" (to heal) is in Genesis 20 (http://biblewheel.com/InnerWheels/Genesis/Genesis20.asp) which corresponds to Spoke 20 where we find the Gospel of Healing written by Luke the Physician.

So there is a lot going on here. I have not reviewed it recently. I imagine a fresh look would bring new insights.

It is the first occurrence of Strong's #07495 rapha which means "to heal."

Getting back to the correlation between Chapters of Genesis and the Bible Wheel, have you thought about Genesis 16 and its correspondence to Ayin = Eye? It is there that Hagar speaks of God as the "God who sees me." Powerful correlation, especially in light of the dominance of ayin in Zechariah.

Lamentations 3:53
They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me.

And this:

Isaiah 53:8
מֵעֹצֶר וּמִמִּשְׁפָּט לֻקָּח וְאֶת־דֹּורֹו מִי יְשֹׂוחֵחַ כִּי נִגְזַר מֵאֶרֶץ חַיִּים מִפֶּשַׁע עַמִּי נֶגַע לָֽמֹו׃
Prison: עצר `otser

He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

Yep - the first occurrence of Ayin in the sense of "fountain" is in Gen 16.

Genesis 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain (ayin) of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur.
The correlation between Gen 16 and Ayin is very strong.

Hey there Gilgal,

Concerning the 66 verses of Lamentations 3 - I have never investigated their possible correlation with the 66 chapters of Isaiah. It think it would be worth researching.

But there is a much more intriguing possibility that I have been wondering about. The 66 verses of Lamenations 3 might correspond with the books on each Spoke of the wheel. There are three verses for each letter, so there is a natural correspondence like this:

First triplet of verses = the books on Spoke 1
Second triplet of verses = the books on Spoke 2
etc.

Following this pattern, we find that the Book of Job corresponds to the first Tzaddi verse:

Lamentations 3:52 Mine enemies chased me sore, like a bird, without cause.
That seems pretty significant since "Job" means "enemy" so we have the actual name of the book appearing in it's corresponding verse. Furthermore, the Tzaddi Keyword in this verse is tzud (to hunt) which describes how Job felt:

Job 10:15 If I be wicked, woe unto me; and if I be righteous, yet will I not lift up my head. I am full of confusion; therefore see thou mine affliction; 16 For it increaseth. Thou huntest me as a fierce lion: and again thou shewest thyself marvellous upon me.
Unfortunately, I have not found other examples that are as strong as this. But then again, I have not studied it in depth yet. It is interesting that the next Tzaddi verse corresponds to Matthew which is the only Gospel that mentions the stone set upon Christ's grave:

Lamentations 3:53 They have cut off my life in the dungeon, and cast a stone upon me.
But I have not seen an obvious connection of the third Tzaddi verse with 1 John.

Now I see what you mean. When you covered the first chapters and then stopped at Gen 4 and said that there was more, I thought you meant Gen 5, 6...

But, yes, even though those chapters don't seem to have a link to the corresponding book name, there are those like the ones you mention.

I remember Matthew 1, when it says: "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ...". Generation in Greek is Genesis, so Matthew 1 corresponds to "the book of Genesis".

1 Samuel 3 twice says "and the Lord called." It thus links to Hebrew name of the book of Leviticus.

Now, this is impressive! I've found links such as this here and there. You see, this is an acrostic chapter, and so verse 53 begins with Tsaddi, but maybe the 53 can link to another 53 such as Isa 53! It really does seem that we are talking about a valid association!
