We saw that ‘silence,’ d’ma•ma, which means cessation of sound, mysteriously shares the same root with one of the words of the linked chain that mirrors the creation: ‘dam,’ blood. The root of both is ‘Dalet,’ ‘Mem,’ ‘Mem’ (D.M.M).
Since we could not fully understand the link between ‘silence’ and ‘blood,’ there was room to assume a possible coincidence in having these words share the same root. If you are not familiar= with the Hebrew language yet, here is a quick reminder of the root base structure: roots of all words and verbs are made up of three letters that serve as a core meaning. This is like a nucleus of related organs (words) connected by a UNIQUE common DNA core to each concept. For example, the root ‘lamad’- ‘Lamed,’ Mem,’ ‘Dalet,’ (LMD sound) is the Hebrew nucleus of all these words: learn, study, student, educated, Talmud, apprentice, trainee, and more.
We were left wondering if the blood-silence (cessation of sound) connection was just a coincidence. Then we saw in the Bible another kind of cessation that also shares the same root: ‘Dalet,’ ‘Mem,’ ‘Mem’ (D.M.M). This is the word ‘dom,’ which mean stop, halt – a cessation of movement!
“Then spoke Joshua to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered the Amorites before the people of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand still upon Gibeon; and you, Moon, in the valley of Ayalon”
The same word, ‘dom’ is used in the New Testament in reference to Yeshua’s act of exorcism. In this case ‘dom’ may indicate both meanings: cessation of sound and cessation of movement:
“And Jesus rebuked him, saying, ‘Hold thy peace, and come out of him.’ And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. And they were all amazed, and spake among themselves, saying, ‘What a word is this! for with authority and power he commandeth the unclean spirits, and they come out’”
‘Hold thy peace’ is the translation of the Hebrew word ‘dom’ in this verse. It brings to the forefront again the mysterious link between ‘dom’ and ‘dam,’ ‘silence’ and ‘blood’.
