Locking Shoulder to Shoulder with Jesus

(note: Hebrew reads right-to-left)

Hebrew is two-simple (22 letters in eleven pairs), with each letter a phonetic diagram of its own sound, and every pair its own vocal context (e.g. a=open, b=shut).  Some letters even have a final-form (used at end-of-word) which shows its exact extent of action (e.g. the end-form of p pops-open, ruling out less-articulated, softer sounds like ph/f/v/b/etc).  Other than such clarifications, the only major distortion over the years is with vowels. 

Most footnotes in your Bible admit they stem from varied vowel points (added much later, and also no longer used, yet had long divided many words into several sounds,  meanings, and also added-in word divisions).  Footnotes for each uncertainty, where added vowel points do not agree, while fully removing (neither match nor transliterate) the original vowels is not using our own eyes and ears.

The general history of mixed-up language had to do with the Tower of Babel, serving as their early mudbrick mountain version of our modern space race (Genesis 11:1-9).

“The whole world will be in-sinerated with the fire of God’s jealous anger (Zephaniah 3:8)” but it’s not about the puny pyramids and pencil rockets.  They tried to “make a name” for themselves (Gen 11:4), instead of their creator, and would have stole our very soul.

Crooks are not known for being smart, yet since devices depend on deception, both “natural” and thus necessary proximity and bonding barriers might actually serve to help foster and develop an “individual” relationship.

Since the world as we know it has not (yet) ended, and my study of such one-language goes back at least four decades already (from age nine, where everything made much more sense), and has always been public, from decades before bumping over (and over) Brother Zep, it must be soon. 

Wherever the “strong” attack the weak, shoulder to shoulder we instantly speak (Zeph 3:9-20).

The Tower of Babel

 1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

 3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”

 5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

 8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel—because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

 9 “Then I will purify the lips of the peoples,
   that all of them may call on the name of the LORD
   and serve him shoulder to shoulder.

 12 But I will leave within you
   the meek and humble.
The remnant of Israel
   will trust in the name of the LORD.
