We are presenting words and names that are closely connected to their biblical narrative, showing how beautifully Hebrew manifests the biblical story of Creation and intrinsically supports physical and natural phenomena by mirroring tightly linked words by essence (‘adam’, man; ‘adama’, ground; and ‘dam,’ blood); color (‘adom’ ‘red’); emotion (‘dema,’ tears); sound (to be discussed tomorrow); and by association (which is demonstrated in today’s word). To better feel the link between the words that manifest the Creation and, thereafter, the physical rules by which you live today − PLEASE DO NOT JUST WHISPER THESE WORDS, BUT RATHER READ THESE IMPORTANT WORDS NOW OUT LOUD.
The five words we discussed are: the key word and name ‘Adam’ (Adam, man), and the four words that are directly related to it: a•da•ma (earth, soil, ground); ‘dam,’ (blood); ‘adom’ (red),; and ‘dema’ (tears). Some of these words sound almost identical, and each includes the letters ‘Dalet’ ‘D,’ and ‘Mem’ ‘M.’ The reflection of earthly realities in the Hebrew tongue are hardly coincidental but rather a form of a secret metaphysical formula that God has infused into the Hebrew language in order to mirror his Creation by solid, unarguable physical facts to which every human being can attest!
The association link to the story of Creation and its key word ‘adam’ comes by the name ‘E•dom,’ Edom. The connection here is made by the color ‘red,’ ‘adom’ that connects to blood ‘dam,’ which in turn connects to ‘adam,’ man or mankind.
What is then the nation of Edom that appears 82 times in the Bible? Who are its people and why are they called by this name?
We find direct and complete answers for these questions in one verse:
“And Esau said to Jacob, ‘Feed me, I beg you, with that same red pottage; for I am famished;’ therefore was his name called Edom”
Thus we know that Esau, Jacob’s twin brother and the son of Isaac is the father of Edom. My daughter, Noga, pointed out that there was an earlier clue in the Bible for the ‘red-Edom’ association:
“And the first came out red, all over like a hairy garment; and they called his name Esau”
Even the lifestyle preference of Esau, the father of Edom, involved much blood: “And the boys grew; and Esau was a skillful hunter, a man of the field; and Jacob was a quiet man, living in tents.” To further cement the make-no-mistake consistency rule that is valid with any biblical narrative, look at the bloody fate of Esau as described in Isaac’s blessing:
“And by your sword shall you live, and shall serve your brother”
