To my Dad, David Joseph Lawson, who recently asked his mishpachah (family) to study Psalms 1, and pray over each family member from it this month (February). As a young child, he had my sister and I memorize this Psalms, it has remained engraved on my heart since then. Thank you Dad, for this gift. Now some 35-40 years later this study has further circumcised my heart and illuminated my path, taking me straight to our Abba Father, yoked to Yeshua our Messiah! May Elohim get the glory and do wonders and miracles as we follow your lead.
I’ve taken a picture of my notes for this blog. What should astound right away is that this blog only consist of the Word – Psalms; and the number – 1. Meaning Psalms 1.
This isn’t meant to be readable, but ya get the gist. 😉
Sadly I have not figured out how to type with both Hebrew and English in this application. So I’ll do the best I can to pull my notes together here.
Tehillim is the Hebrew plural for Song of Praise. It also means: to make a melody. It also can mean: to prune.
Hmmm…what does pruning have to do with songs of praise and melodies?As soon as I saw the part about pruning, I immediately thought of the following scriptures. Turns out that they pulled the entire study together.
I am the real vine, and My Father is the Gardner. Every branch which is part of Me but fails to bear fruit, He cuts off; and every branch that does bear fruit, He prunes, so that it may bear more fruit. Right now, because of the Word which I have spoken to you, you are pruned.
See, the Word of God is alive! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword – it cuts right through to where the soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart. Before God, nothing created is hidden, but all things are naked and open to the eyes of Him to whom we must render an account.
Let high praises of God be in their throats, but a two-edged sword in their hands.
He has made my mouth like a sharp sword while hiding me in the shadow of His hand; He has made me like a sharpened arrow while concealing me in His quiver.
Any number of Psalms and their many verses start to pour out from each of these verses. Adding, adding, stretching, expanding and deepening the very beginning…two small things: Psalms 1. See here, when you take the Hebrew letters and dig into the meaning of each letter of Tehillim what they say.
Now let’s do the number 1. In Hebrew numbers are letters, the letters of the aleph-bet. So the first letter is ALEPH = 1
Note: the number 1 by aleph, and the other letters that spell the letter aleph (the other numbers I won’t cover here, keeping it applicable: Psalms 1)
I then investigated the meaning of each letter.
The letter aleph means: strong, power, leader. In ancient Hebrew, which was pictographs it was drawn as an ox head. All the words that are included within this letter are:
Ox muscle – strongest of the livestock
Yoke – the ox is placed in a yoke to pull a load or plow
Chief – a leader, often yoked to a youngster to teach
Ram – strong leader of the flock
Stag – strong leader of the forest
Fat tail – the strong part of a sheep
Pillar/Arch – strong supports of a structure or building.
This is just the single letter aleph broken down. The next letter in the spelling of aleph is: Lamed.
Lamed is written like a shepherds staff reaching out to crook a sheep back into the fold, in ancient Hebrew pictographs form. It means: Staff of Might and to Teach. Here are the words connected to Lamed:
To/toward – the staff was used to push or pull one of the flock in a direction.
Authority – a staff is a sign of the shepherd’s authority.
Yoke – like the “staff” on the shoulders of oxen for directing
Bind/ Tie – from the fastening of the yoke.
As you can see in the pictures for Lamed, there is a spelling for the letter with two other letters in its spelling. To break these down, there is the Lamed seen above. The next letter is: Mem; which means: Mighty. The next letter is: Dalet; which means: Door. Taken all their meanings together Lamed means: to learn: to aquire knowledge or skill through instruction from One who is experienced (with authority). All three of Lamed’s letters together mean: to learn through the Mighty Door.
Just the letters Aleph and Lamed (the first two letters that spell Aleph) which is the number 1, mean: strong authority
The next letter in the spelling of Aleph is: Pey
The letter Pey in ancient Hebrew pictographs is represented by a horizontal oval meaning: Mouth. The letter Pey means: Open.
Speak/word/blow – functions of the mouth.
As seen in the picture above the letter; Pey is spelt with Pey and the letter; Hey – which means: Look. Together they mean: to open the mouth or speak of what you see (look).
The letter Pey in the spelling of the Word Aleph, which is the letter aleph representing the number 1: means: a Branch or staff as separated from the Tree – often used as an idiom – “to his/her own stick” meaning: alone or self.
So taking all three of the letters that spell Aleph together: aleph/lamed/pey. Right out the door the number 1 means: the Strong Authority which keeps the Branch connected to the Tree.
So….what does just Psalms 1 mean with all this put together? It basically tells the story of the verses themselves, backwards, forwards, taken apart, however you look at it. Psalms 1, was given to David by Adonai, His DNA identifies the Author!
Psalms 1: The Strong Authority which keeps the Branches connected to the Tree as they Learn through the Mighty Door and Open their Mouth to Speak of (sing/praise) what they see!
So…to wrap up I would overwhelm you with His own Words, Mighty to save, worthy of eternal praise! Confirming far better the Strength of His language of old, that because we now have the access to so much knowledge and information, we in these last days can now study to show ourselves approved and be without excuse to Praise Him with our lives!
So now he will startle many nations; because of Him, kings will be speechless. For those who have not been told about Him will see, and those who have not heard will understand.
1 Corinthians 2:6-16
Yet there is a wisdom that we are speaking to those who are mature enough for it. But it is not the wisdom of this world or this world’s leaders, who are in the process of passing away. On the contrary, we are communicating a secret wisdom from God which has been hidden until now but which, before history began, God had decreed would bring us glory. Not one of this world’s leaders has understood it; because if they had, they would not have executed the Lord from whom this glory flows. But, as the Tanakh says,
No eye has seen, nor ear has heard and no one’s heart has imagined all the things that God has prepared for those who love Him.
It is to us, however, that God has revealed these things. How? Through the Spirit. For the Spirit probes all things, even the profoundest depths of God. For who knows the inner workings of a person except the persons own spirit inside him? So too no one knows the inner workings of God except God’s Spirit. Now we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit of God, so that we might understand the things God has so freely given us. These are the things we are talking about when we avoid the manner of speaking taught by the Spirit, by which we explain things of the Spirit to people who have the Spirit. Now the natural man does not receive the things from the Spirit of God – to him they are nonsense! Moreover, he is unable to grasp them, because they are evaluated through the Spirit. But the person who has the Spirit can evaluate everything, while no one is in a position to evaluate him.
For who has known the mind of Adonai? Who can counsel Him?
But we have the mind of the Messiah!
Ephesians 3:1-20; 2 Peter 3:1-18 ☝
On that day you will say:
I thank You, Adonai, because, although You were angry at me, Your anger is now turned away; and You are comforting me. See! God is my salvation (Yeshua). I am confident and unafraid; for Yah Adonai is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation!
Then you will joyfully draw water from the springs of Salvation. In that day you will say, ” Give thanks to Adonai! Call on His Name! Make His deeds known among the people’s, declare how exalted is His Name. Sing to Adonai, for He has triumphed – this is being made known throughout the earth. Shout and sing for joy, you who live in Tziyon (Zion); for the Holy One of Israel is with you in His Greatness!”
The eyes of those seeing will not be closed, and the ears of those hearing will pay close attention. The minds of the impetuous will learn to weigh carefully, the tongues of the stutterers will speak readily and clearly.
You are My witnesses, says Adonai, and My servant whom I have chosen, so that you can know and trust Me and understand that I am He – no god was produced before Me, nor will any be after Me.
Then my tongue will tell of Your righteousness and praise You all day long.
Psalms 40:5; 8-10
How much You have done, Adonai my God! Your wonders and Your thoughts towards us – none can compare with You! I would proclaim them, I would speak about them but there’s too much to tell!
Doing Your will, my God, is my joy; Your Torah (Teachings) is in my inmost being. I have proclaimed what is right in the great assembly; I did not restrain my lips, Adonai, as You know. I did not hide Your righteousness in my heart but declared Your faithfulness and Salvation; I did not conceal Your grace and truth from the great assembly.
Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell what He has done for me.
All day long my mouth will tell of Your righteous deeds and acts of salvation, though their number is past my knowing. I will come in the power of Adonai Elohim and recall Your righteousness, Yours alone. God, You have taught me since I was young and I still proclaim Your wonderful works. So now that I’m old and my hair is gray, don’t abandon me, God, till I have proclaimed Your Strength to the next generation, Your Power to all who will come.
Psalms 119: 12-14; 46
Blessed are You, Adonai! Teach me Your Laws. I proclaim with my mouth all the rulings You have spoken. I rejoice in the way of Your instruction more than any kind of wealth.
I will speak of Your Instructions even to kings without being afraid.
Each generation will praise Your Works to the next and proclaim Your Mighty acts I will meditate on the glorious Splendor of Your Majesty and on the story of Your Wonders. People will speak of Your awesome Power, and I will tell of Your great deeds. They will gush forth the fame of Your abounding goodness, and they will sing of Your Righteousness.
Matthew 10:26-27; 32-33
So do not fear them; for there is nothing covered that will not be uncovered, or hidden that will not be known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the light, what is whispered in your ear, proclaim on the house tops.
Whoever acknowledges Me in the presence of others, I will also acknowledge in the presence of my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns Me before others I will disown before My Father in heaven.
“Go back to your home and tell how much God has done for you.” He went away proclaiming throughout the whole town how much Yeshua had done for him.
1 Timothy 6:12
Fight the good fight of faith, take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you testified so well to your faith before many witnesses.
1 John 1:1-4
The Word, which gives life! He existed from the beginning. We have heard Him, we have seen Him with our eyes we have contemplated Him, we have touched Him with our hands! The life appeared and we have seen it. We are testifying to it and announcing it to you – eternal life! He was with the Father and He appeared to us. What we have seen and heard we are proclaiming to you; so that you too may have fellowship with us. Our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son, Yeshua the Messiah. We are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.
And I heard every creature in heaven, on earth, under the earth and on the sea – yes, everything in them, saying,
To the One sitting on the Throne and to the Lamb belong praise, honor, glory and power forever and ever! The four living beings said “Amen!” And the elders fell down and worshipped.
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the alter the should of those who had been put to death for proclaiming the Word of God, that is, for bearing witness. They cried out in a loud voice, Sovereign Ruler, The Holy One, The True One, how long will it be before You judge the people living on earth and avenge our blood?
Revelation 12:10-12; 17
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying,
Now have come God’s victory, Power and kingship and the Authority of His Messiah; because the accuser of our brothers who accuses them day and night before God has been thrown out!
They defeated him because of the Lambs blood and because of the message of their witness. Even facing death, they did not cling to life.
Therefore, rejoice, heaven and you who live there! But woe to you, land and sea, for the adversary has come down to you and he is very angry, because he knows that his time is short!
The dragon was infuriated over the woman and went off to fight the rest of her children, those who obey God’s commands and bear witness to Yeshua.
Pay attention, says Yeshua, I am coming soon, and My rewards are with Me to give each person according to what he has done. I am the A (Aleph) and the Z (Tav), the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the Gates of the city! Outside are the homosexuals, those involved with the occult and with drugs, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood. I, Yeshua, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come! Let everyone who hears say, Come! And let anyone who is thirsty come – let anyone who wishes, take the water of life free of charge. I warn everyone hearing these words of the prophecy in this book that if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues written in this book. And if anyone takes anything away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his share in the Tree of Life and the Holy city as described in this book.
The One who is testifying to these things says, Yes, I am coming soon!
Amen! Come, Lord Yeshua!
May the grace of the Lord Yeshua be with all!
Now to God, who can Strengthen you, according to the Good News, in harmony with the revelation of the secret truth which is the proclamation of Yeshua the Messiah, kept hidden in silence for ages and ages, but manifested now through prophetic writings, in keeping with the command of God the Eternal, and communicated to all the Gentiles, to promote in them trust-grounded obedience – to the Only Wise God, through Yeshua the Messiah, be the glory forever and ever! Amen. (Romans 16:25-27)
Shadows ands dust
That’s what you’d like me to believe I am
Floating on the winds of human illusions
Left to the chance breezes of monetary bondages
Cast into the shadow of man’s invention
Shaped by their slave molding institutions
Oh, but most of all!
Most of all you’d bind me to the chains of me-ism
Every thought revolving towards myself
Caught in the lightless shade of self-absorbtion
This is your highest prize
But by the Grace that shaped the universe
I speak the Name – Yeshua
My eyes begin to light
The world fades dark as night
Yeshua, Yeshua, the Great Light
Fear falls like the shadows and dust you intended for man
Your jealousy crawls in darkness
Yahweh has loved these weak-kneed creatures
Fear follows His thought to the pit
Loosened now, are the chains that perpetuate the self-full soul
The pin point flame of Grace begins a roaring fire
Refining the weakness into His strength
The me-ism loses desire
The inner soul turns instead to the Glory!
Glory, glory in the Highest!
Worthy is the One to be praised!
The envied little weaklings you so abhorred
Now turns from themselves to stand in His gaze!
You screech and paw, and maim and kill
But you are weakness imbodied still
Cast out as the dust and shadows you offered us instead
And what more do or did you have to offer?
You Liar, son of deceit!
I stand in the coat of Blood that’s been offered
Shaking your dust off His feet!
Hear and harken, dust and shadows
You’ll play no tricks on my Savior
My ears will close up to your shadow
My eyes shall see only His Light
HE! HE has decreed it! It will be so
So even if, I shall become dust again
His breath will again wake me and I will look upon His face, forever!
This is the program planned for all the earth, this is the Hand stretched out over all the nation’s. Adonai-Tzva’ot has made His decision. Who is there that can stop Him? He has stretched out His Hand. Who can turn it back?
There is coming a King who will reign justly and princes who will rule uprightly. A man will be like a refuge from the wind, like protection from a storm, like streams of water on arid ground, like a rock cliff shading a weary land. The eyes of those seeing will not be closed, the ears of those hearing will pay close attention. The minds of the impetuous will learn to weigh carefully, the tongues of the stutterers will speak readily and clearly.
From a distance Adonai appeared to me, saying, “I love you with an everlasting love; this is why in My Grace I draw you to Me.
Yes, I will pasture My sheep; and I will let them rest, says (declares) Adonai Elohim. I will seek the lost, bring back the outcasts, bandage the broken, and strengthen the sick. But the fat and the strong I will destroy – I will feed them with judgement.
I will proclaim the decree Adonai said to me, “You are My son; today I became your Father.”
But in my mind I keep returning to something, something that gives me hope -that the Grace of Adonai is not exhausted, that His compassion has not ended. On the contrary, they are new every morning! How great is Your Faithfulness! “Adonai is all I have,” I say; “therefore I will put my hope in Him.” Adonai is good to those waiting for Him, to those who are seeking Him. It is good to wait patiently for the saving help of Adonai. It is good for a man to bear the yoke from his youth. Let him sit alone in silence when He has laid it on him. Let him submit absolutely; there may yet be hope. Let him offer his cheek to the one who strikes it, and receive his fill of insults. For rejection by Adonai does not last forever. He may cause grief, but He will take pity, in keeping with the greatness of His Grace. For He does not arbitarily torment or punish human beings. When anyone tramples underfoot any of the prisoners of the land; when anyone deprives a person of justice, in defiance of the Most High; when someone is cheated of justice in court – does Adonai not take note of such things? Who can say something and have it happen without Adonai commanding it? Don’t both bad things and good proceed from the mouth of the Most High? Why should anyone alive complain, even a strong man, about the punishment for his sins?
In union with Him, through the shedding of His blood, we are set free – our sins are forgiven; this accords with the wealth of the Grace He has lavished on us. In all His wisdom and insight He has made known to us His secret plan, which by His own will He designed beforehand in connection with the Messiah and will put into effect when the time is ripe – His plan to place everything in heaven and on earth under the Messiah’s headship.
♡ Grace and Shalom in Yeshua the Messiah ♡
I’m weary of things that make no sense to me. And I know that likely the problem is the difference between “sense” to You and what “sense” is to me. Father calibrate my senses to Your Word, Your heart, Your mind. Align it to Your sense of justice, Your Truth, Your wisdom in accordance with Your grace and mercy.
Yet hear my heart, I offer it to You out of the strength of my need to give it to You… the only place You have assured that it can be transformed.
Father, so many I love and You love beyond all knowing – struggle. What seems to me to be the origin of which is not knowing truly what You mean by forgiveness. They all say they know You, they all say they love You… how can they not know forgiveness if that’s true?
Deception covers their eyes and masks their wounds with a deadly salve. Abba, I appeal to You for their freedom, release, and protection from the evil one. Division is the hallmark of the lack of Your grace. In both directions, both in the ability to receive it from You and let it flow out as You give in the direction of all around us. Complete pardon. Love given to wounding hearts ignoring the pain, scorning its shame!
I see Your grace and forgiveness like the mightiest river rushing over the mightiest precipice from which we all may step up and stand directly under its crushing but life-giving flow. Yet we all approach, it seems, with thimble sized cups and fill them. Almost out of duty, instead of devotion. Do we do this so as to justify why we give so little when what’s been offered by You is a lifetime supply, full to overflowing, without end? This weighs heavy on my mind… and makes me run to You. Teach me Abba, to enter the rush and crushing blow of Your love and forgiveness. To throw away any of my feeble forms of retrieval, to smash my dainty cups and abandon my thimbles and place myself into the flow of all You would give. To me and through me. Let me not stand hard hearted in the flow once I’m there drenched in Your Mercy, make me a channel not a rock that splatters small drops in all directions minutely. Oh that You would flow in the exact direction You’ve set for me and I would be an open canal of Your grace.
Is this not freedom?
Where is the wolf in sheeps clothing that has misled Your sheep to think forgiveness means a decision but no action? Root out Your enemy, open our eyes to see this invader who is stealing the peace that surpasses understanding in the mystery of Your grace! Blot out the very concept of “deserving” from our minds and let no root of it develope in our hearts. For Your grace only coats the souls of the undeserving. Abba I praise You that we are all equally qualified, with no exceptions!
Oh Sweet Savior Yeshua, intercede according to Your work and glory with every breath You took upon this earth in human form, and with the power of the heaven that came from Your last breath and then the one which brought You back from the depths of our depravity into the finished-ness – completeness – of Your obedience and Your reward! If we were to count all the breaths You took, You have said the last one was the only one that mattered! Victory in grace and mercy for all time was contained in The Father’s resuscitation from the tomb where You were laid. Resuscitate Your people Father! Blow us away with Your love! Carve, cut, and create anew Your grace and mercy upon our cavernous souls. Open our eyes so that Your glory can shine from them!
Is there any form of hypocrisy in me Abba? Is my weariness caused by seeing logs resulting from the leporous numbness in my own eye which has a splinter? Remove the wormwood thief from my vision O God! For only Your grace can tweeze it from my pupil! Make not my prayer dishonor Your Name, Your Character! For this is the greatest fear of my soul! Make it a holy and a righteous fear infused with devotion to Your ways O Lord! Hear my cry, Abba! Forgive us, and make us so aware of its power to transform that we never find a reason, an offense, that requires a barrier again!
Convince us Father of Your protection so deeply that we abandon all need to self protect! Let us see Your Words that instruct us to ‘guard our hearts’ in the light of Your Truth and wisdom alone. For again it would seem some wolf in sheeps clothing has entered the fold and twisted the meaning. Show us Father that this “guarding” is us, individually keeping watch on our own error and lack of perception of You and Your ways within ourselves! Somehow the wolf has convinced that this guarding pertains to others instead! I am furious at this deception! Avenge Father for it steals from Your glory!
Teach, woo, and correct with fierce mercy, us Your children to listen to Your voice and become so accustomed to the sound of You that no wolf can ever deafen or dull our ears to it again!
Rise up O my Father, Righteous Judge and Mercy-giver and hear my cry, I humbly appeal. For I know You hear me and I count on Your answer! Only give me eyes and ears to listen and look for Your immediate and working answer, that I may praise You! That I may praise You!
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah
The “truth”; when it comes to our speech or rather how it can pour forth from our mouths; is too often distorted by simplicity and complexity. Simplicity in that the black and white thinking of man gives the illusion that there is only one way to view something. Complexity in that man-kind has rationalized and theorized “truth” into an oblivion of facets that many give up on trying to attain it. The Truth in man’s hands is more a cousin to deceit than a child of love.
This is why I love the above scripture so much. It puts all speech into the Light of Truth. Keeping ones words from evil. Anything that does not do good, speak well, promote good, promote unity, cause grace. .. to flow from our hearts. This is evil. Another perspective is. .. anything that Yeshua or the Spirit wouldn’t say to the Father on behalf of another, these things should never darken the door of our own lips.
Hate stirs up disputes, but love covers all kinds of transgressions.
He who conceals an offense promotes love, but he who harps on it can separate even close friends.
1 Peter 1:22
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth, so that you have a sincere love for your brothers, love each other deeply, with all your heart.
1 Peter 4:8
More than anything, keep loving each other actively; Because love covers many sins.
I must constantly remind myself that David, in the Psalms we read, is praying. .. having a conversation with God. Davids prayer here is concerned with what is between him and His God. What most do not know. ..because in this “closet” noone knows what he is thinking or praying or asking. At least when he wrote them. Now, of course, the whole world. .. generation upon generation has read Davids heart. But at the time he wrote this. .. it was an appeal to God and a conversation with God that was present and real to David. He wasn’t trying to “teach” or preach to anyone. David was a king. .. His speech was subjected to every kind of opportunity known to man. Privately and publicly he knew this area was the first place to seek God’s wisdom. Here is why. .. Yeshua (Jesus) Himself unmuddies the waters.
Moreover, I tell you this: on the Day of Judgement people will have to give account for every careless word they have spoken; for by your own words you will be acquitted, and by your own words you will be condemned.
In other words. .. how I speak of others, what I share about others is very very important to God. If I speak well of others. ..I reflect the heart of God and therefore am able to be free of ill speaking. Likewise how I refrain from speaking of others wrongs. Freedom from it touching me when others speak ill of me and freedom from condemnation that comes from having spoken ill of others. Freedom in the world of loving. .. able to be taught from the Lord how to love. Then, Yeshua, being the Truth is greater in me than myself. Grace covers my wrongs and through Yeshua living in me it covers all the wrongs I will personally encounter done to me, around me, effecting me. ..in all ways.
He who has ears…Let him hear…
He who has lips…Let him speak or be silent. As The Truth would do for you before His Father. Notice in the story above the emphasis is on the relationship between a son and father? God has a special passion about this. The son that honors the father… no matter what. .. is to the glory of God. A word out of our mouth that keeps in mind our Father is their Father, is to the glory of the Son. Yeshua personified Love on the cross. .. covering all wrongs for all time with the Father. We are told He now stands before our Father with words of reminder of our acquittal. Along the road to that cross. .. He asked the Father to forgive (cover His eyes to the wrongs being done Him). Again on the cross He asks this. He’s still asking. .. we must assume all wrongs are being forgiven. .. and do justice by giving them very little “air-time” out of our mouths. We enter into the Kingdom Yeshua brought with Him when our tongues shun evil and in its place do good.
What is the difference between this complexity and simplicity and the first one I mentioned? God is at the center. .. not human reasoning. Human reasoning does what humans naturally feel inclined to do. The hallmark of God’s reasoning inside a human is the “going against the grain actions” of human nature. May He get the glory. .. in our speaking and our silence. May we know the Truth and be set free! So that we serve The Whole Truth and nothing but The Truth so help us God!
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah

You are here
And I behold Your beauty
Your glory fills this place
Because of You my eyes are trained to see Your works
Because of Your grace my ears hear for the first time
Because You are faithful my soul knows it’s Maker
I can do nothing but praise because of You
I am nothing emptied of You
Fill me O God with Your wonder ever more
And I will tell of You!
Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah
