Lesson 11: Hebrew Hey

This is the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet.
It is called "Hey" and pronounced like an E or הא.
It also represents the number 5.
It means, "Behold."  Also to show or to reveal.
It is also "the" prefix added before any noun.
If this letter is added at the end of a word, it become a feminine noun.
"Behold" is a word that is very common in our Scriptures,
meaning that our Elohim wants us to pay attention.
During proto-canaanite time, this letter originally looked like a man with his hands lifted up.

Let us take a look at some passages.  The word behold is often used when our Almighty Father is trying to get our attention to some very important matter... this particular passage is Jeremiah is significant because the sign of Yeshua, the Alef and Tav, the beginning and the end, is there in verse 7!  (Shown in red letters)  The first letter of verse 6, starts with Behold, or pronounced as "hinni" or הנני which is also another word for Behold, and it starts with the same letter, Hey ה.  Note an interesting thing happens, something that not many of us realize.  There are 3 similar words that are repetitive for emphasis (this is called Redundancy): health, healing, I will heal.  What does it mean?  Our Father is  to revealing to us that peace and truth brings healing.  Our study of His word, His truth, is what brings healing!

Jeremiah 33:6-7
Behold, I will bring to it health and healing, and I will heal them; and I will reveal to them an abundance of peace and truth.
הנני מעלה לה ארכה ומרפא ורפאתים וגליתי להם עתרת שלום ואמת׃
I will restore the fortunes of Judah and the fortunes of Israel and will rebuild them as they were at first.
והשבתי את שבות יהודה ואת שבות ישראל ובנתים כבראשנה׃

Yeshua told his disciples, his talmudim (the Hebrew words for students or disciples) in John 8:32:  "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."  Free from what?  From the hold that sins and diseases have on our lives.  The discovery of God's truth during your time of study and devotion is what brings healing to your body.

There's more!  Read on to verse 7, Elohim promised also that He will restore our fortunes!  Long time ago, about 3,000 years, Israel as a nation was at the height of its glory.  It was wealthy and prosperous.  Can you imagine our Almighty Father actually restoring all this?  There's hope for us yet!  Since the return of the captives in 1945, Israel has gradually became a prosperous nation.  For a small country, its technological growth has been amazing in such a short time, compared to its larger neighbors. 

I hope this lesson has been a blessing for you.  Next we will learn to read words with the letter Hey.  Have a blessed weekend!
