Digging into the many words that repeat time and again in the 119th Psalm today's word - Word - Imirah in Hebrew the feminine version such as the "Milk of the word"
The treasurers of the hundred and 19 so we are going on a treasure hunt and the gold we are seeking in this treasure hunt is actually the phrase of God like join us taking this deep dive mining with David in the hundred and 19 Psalm mining further into the word word of the 10 words, two of them happened to be the word word. You know, one is in Hebrew. As we talked about the bar, but interestingly, there is another form of the word word which is used throughout and actually quite frequently throughout the hundred 19 Psalm is the word Amira and it spelled completely differently and it has a lot different connotation to it by one of the main things to really consider from my perspective. When we dig into this word word is that it's a completely different gender. In other words, the word to bar is a mailman or the word Amira is a female noun, and when you think about the milk of the word. Then you begin to get a sense of wow God is truly gender fallen, so when he gives words, there were hurts that are male and there's words that are female. So what's really cool is it when you see like in this eight versus the letter bet they use that word words three different times I translated in English, but there are to the bars and one Amira Mira so what's the difference well it's interesting that you know you may be very familiar with that. You know, I've had my word in my heart that I might not sin against the that's the Amira word. The second one when we talk about today. The female word where it says that I have delighted in your statutes. Therefore I will not forget your word. That's the debar word that's the that's the more of a command more than a male word, and so when you look at these two different things throughout the Psalm.
It's it's a beautiful thing to see and for example in verse one 1903 he sees me his first hundred and third verse of the hundred 19 Psalm it says how sweet are thy words unto my taste yet sweeter than honey. While you might guess that that's the word Amira rather than the debar and so as we study this is a beautiful thing to take a look at these two ways that words are expressed, but more also for today's you know mining expedition. I just want you to think with me about how cool is it that your mother has words that you remember I'm I'm hoping you had a good mom, but at least a female caregiver of some kind that you got words from her that. Certainly I've been hidden down in your heart that that that you wouldn't sin against God in all of our gods provided them some way these female words that came of nurturing and those kind of things that you that did that white soldiers cry out on the battlefield for mom is what they're looking for is a word from their mom. Well, you know, this is reflected throughout the Psalm, but also there's times that we have words that are words that our father gave us words that we live by. And so it's it's really neat for me to see how gender full God really is and how he meets our needs and so many different ways as we look at this word Amira. Let's just look at how it's spelled and talk about that a minute.
It's really tremendously beautiful to me. The first two letters are aleph and Mem okay that aleph is normally meant. The father and the man normally is meant for the Messiah or Jesus or water.
But when you put them together. It spells moments tells mother if you put a aleph and Mem together of words when you say father right you know that's all about that's in aleph and I bet when you say mother it's in aleph and MM and thus we get the idea about the female gender of this word that means word America and like to bar the next letter is a rage meeting the head or the beginning of something which clearly you know your mom was the beginning of you and so me the wrong way and then the letter hay which does in fact mean expression, and so these are expressions of the headship of your mother lose your beginning to some extent, but clearly God plays both those roles as he is gender full so as we look in the hundred 19 Psalm not only do we get to ponder on the word debar which means word but we will also ponder on this word, which is absolutely beautiful. Amira and and what those words mean to us again it's it's an amazing thing to think wow they gave us this in the study this in the way that the this almost clearly understood the difference of the gender of these words word and how beautiful the language is that we can see clear.
The heart of God through these expressions. Thank you for sharing this trip with me on this mining trip. As always, I'm honored there's a PDF that has these words you can see the spelling there, and some information on that are there in the show notes and again I am just so delighted to take this
