9 And it was during that period that Yehoshua from Natzeret of the Galil came
and submitted to Yochanan‘s tevilah in the mikveh mayim of the Yarden.
10 And ofn ort (immediately) Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach came up
out of the mikveh mayim, and he saw the Shomayim being torn open
and the Ruach Hakodesh of Hashem descending like a yonah (dove) upon him.
11 And there was a bat kol out of the Shomayim, ATAH BNI AHUVI ASHER BCHA
CHAFATSTI (You are my Son, the beloved, with whom I am well pleased).
[BERESHIT 22:2; TEHILLIM 2:7; YESHAYAH 42:1]
12 Then the Ruach Hakodesh ofn ort (immediately) thrusts Rebbe,
Melech HaMoshiach out into the midbar (wilderness).
13 And Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was in the midbar arbaim yom varbaim lailah
(forty days and forty nights), undergoing nisyonos hassadeh (wild beasts, IYOV 5:23),
and the malachim were the meshartei Hashem ministering to Moshiach. (YOEL 1:9,
TEHILLIM 91:11). [SHEMOT 24:18; MELACHIM ALEF 19:8]
1IBereshis (In the Beginning) was the Dvar Hashem [YESHAYAH 55:11; BERESHIT 1:1], and the Dvar Hashem was agav (along with) Hashem [MISHLE 8:30; 30:4],
and the Dvar Hashem was nothing less, by nature, than Elohim! [TEHILLIM 56:11; Yn 17:5; Rev. 19:13]
2Bereshis (In the Beginning) this Dvar Hashem was with Hashem.
3All things through him came to be, and without him came to be not one thing
which came into being. [TEHILLIM 33:6, 9; MISHLE 30:4]
4In him was Chayyim (Life) and the Chayyim (Life) was the Ohr (Light) of Bnei Adam.
5And the Ohr (Light) shines in the chosech (darkness) [TEHILLIM 18:28],
and the chosech did ot grasp it. [YESHAYA 9:1].
To Corinth I 15:1-8
1Now, Achim b‘Moshiach, I draw your attention to the Besuras HaGeulah
which I proclaimed to you, which also you received, in which also you stand firm [YESHAYA 40:9]
2through which also you are brought to Yehua‘at Eloheinu, provided you hold fast
to the dvar Torah, which I proclaimed to you, unless you received it in vain. (cf. 15:12-14, 10)
3 For I transmitted and handed on to you as authoritative Torah, rishon (first),
that which was also transmitted and handed on to me as authoritative Torah (Ga. 1:18):
that Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach died on behalf of avoneinu (our averos —
YESHAYAH 1:4, iniquities, gross wickedness, depravities) according to the Kitvei Hakodesh
(YEHAYA 53: 8-9; DANIEL 9:26],
4and that Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was buried in a kever (grave, burial place,
YESHAYA 53:9), and that Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was raised in a Techiya
from the mesim on YOM HASHLISHI (BERESHIT 1:11-13 etc.]
according to the Kitvei Hakodesh [TEHILLIM 16:10),
5and that Rebbe Melech HaMoshiach was seen by Kefa, then by Sheneym Asar,
6afterwards Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was seen by over five hundred
Achim b‘Moshiach at one time, of whom most remain alive until now, though some
sleep the sleep of the mesim.
7Afterward, Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach, ws seen by Ya‘akov (Ga 1:19),
then by all the Shluchim.
8And, last of all, even as if to one born not normally [like the rest], Rebbe, Melech HaMoshiach was seen by me also. (cf.9:1)
Bereshis 12:1 - 5
1 Now Hashem had said unto Avram, Get thee out of thy country,
and from thy kindred, and from the bais avicha, unto ha‘aretz that I will show thee;
2 And I will make of thee a goy gadol (great nation), and I will bless thee,
and make thy shem great; and thou shalt be a berakha (blessing);
3 And I will bless the one blessing you, and curse him that curses you;
and qol mishpochot haadamah shall be blessed through you.
4 So Avram departed as Hashem had told him; and Lot went with him;
and Avram was seventy and five years old when he had departed out of Charan.
5 And Avram took Sarai his isha, and Lot his brother‘s son, and all their
possessions that they had amassed; and the nefesh that they had gotten in Charan;
and they went forth to go into the land of Kena‘an; and they arrived in the land of Kena‘an.
1Come, kol tzameh (all ye who are thirsty), come ye to the mayim
and he that has no kesef; come ye, buy and eat; yes come, buy yayin and cholov
without kesef and without mekhir (price, cost).
2Why do you spend kesef for that which is not lechem? And your labor
for that which satisfieth not? Pay heed diligently unto Me, and eat ye that
which is tov, and let your nefesh delight itself in deshen (the best food, the fat of the land).
3Incline your ozen, and come unto Me, hear, and your nefesh shall live;
and I will make with you a Brit Olam, and the chasdei Dovid hane‘emanim
[see Ac 13:34 OJBC].
1 Hashem is my Ro‘eh (Shepherd); I shall not lack.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside
the mei menuchot (tranquil waters).
3 He restoreth my nefesh; He guides me in the paths of tsedek l‘ma‘an Shmo
(righteousness for the sake of his Name).
4 Yea, though I walk through the Gey Tzalmavet (Valley of the Shadow of Death),
I will fear no rah (evil), for Thou art with me, Thy shevet (rod) and Thy staff
they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a shulchan before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou anointest my head with shemen (olive oil); my kos runneth over.
6 Surely tov and chesed shall follow me kol y‘mei chaiyyai (all the days of my life):
and I will dwell in the Beis Hashem l‘orech yamim (for the lenght of days,
whole life long, forever).
