The Matter is the Word of the Covenant


Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:Exo 19:5 KJV

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Yisraal.Exo 19:6 KJV

And Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before their faces all these words which Yahweh commanded him.Exo 19:7 KJV

And all the people answered together, and said, All that Yahweh hath spoken we will do. And Moses returned the words of the people unto Yahweh .Exo 19:8 KJV


Then she spake, saying, They were wont to speak in old time, saying, They shall surely Ask counsel at Abel: and so they ended the matter.2Sa 20:18 KJV

I am one of them that are peaceable and faithful in Israel: thou seekest to destroy a city and a mother in Yisraal: why wilt thou swallow up the inheritance of Yahweh? 2Sa 20:19


And Joab answered and said, Far be it, far be it from me, that I should swallow up or destroy.2Sa 20:20 KJV

The matter is not so: but a man of mount Ephraim, Sheba the son of Bichri by name, hath lifted up his hand against the king, even against David: deliver him only, and I will depart from the city. And the woman said unto Joab, Behold, his head shall be thrown to thee over the wall.2Sa 20:21 KJV


The Priests


Deu 17:8 - 13 KJV

- If there arise a matter too hard for thee in judgment, between blood and blood, between plea and plea, and between stroke and stroke, being matters of controversy within thy gates: then shalt thou arise, and get thee up into the place which Yahweh your Father shall choose;

- And thou shalt come unto the priests the Levites, and unto the judge that shall be in those days, and enquire; and they shall shew thee the sentence of  judgment:

- And thou shalt do according to the sentence, which they of that place which Yahweh shall choose shall shew thee; and thou shalt observe to do according to all that they inform thee:

- According to the sentence of the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do: thou shalt not decline from the sentence which they shall shew thee, to the right hand, nor to the left.

- And the man that will do presumptuously, and will not hearken unto the priest that standeth to minister there before Yahweh your Father, or unto the judge, even that man shall die: and thou shalt put away the evil from Israel.

- And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.


Mal 2:1 -9 KJV

- And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you.

- If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith Yahweh of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you,and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart.

- Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it.

- And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith Yahweh of hosts.

- My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.

- The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.

- For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of Yahweh of hosts.

- But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith Yahweh of hosts.

- Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law.


The Judges


Exo 18:13- 27  KJV

- And it came to pass on the morrow, that Moses sat to judge the people: and the people stood by Moses from the morning unto the evening.

- And when Moses' father in law saw all that he did to the people, he said, What is this thing that thou doest to the people? why sittest thou thyself alone, and all the people stand by thee from morning unto even?

- And Moses said unto his father in law, Because the people come unto me to enquire of Yahweh:

- When they have a matter, they come unto me; and I judge between one and another, and I do make them know the statutes of Yahweh, and his laws.

- And Moses' father in law said unto him, The thing that thou doest is not good.

- Thou wilt surely wear away, both thou, and this people that is with thee: for this thing is too heavy for thee; thou art not able to perform it thyself alone.

- Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and Yahweh shall be with thee: Be thou for the people to God-ward, that thou mayest bring the causes unto Yahweh:

- And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.

- Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear Yahweh, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens:

- And let them judge the people at all seasons: and it shall be, that every great matter they shall bring unto thee, but every small matter they shall judge: so shall it be easier for thyself, and they shall bear the burden with thee.

- If thou shalt do this thing, and Yahweh command thee so, then thou shalt be able to endure, and all this people shall also go to their place in peace.

- So Moses hearkened to the voice of his father in law, and did all that he had said.

- And Moses chose able men out of all Israel, and made them heads over the people, rulers of thousands, rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.

- And they judged the people at all seasons: the hard causes they brought unto Moses, but every small matter they judged themselves.

- And Moses let his father in law depart; and he went his way into his own land.



Jerusalem  -  Teacher of Peace  -  Government Of Peace


Then she spake, saying, They were wont to speak in old time, saying, They shall surely Ask counsel at Abel: and so they ended the matter.2Sa 20:18 KJV

I am one of them that are peaceable and faithful in Yisraal: thou seekest to destroy a city and a mother in Yisraal: why wilt thou swallow up the inheritance of Yahweh?2Sa 20:19 KJV


Gal 4:21 - 31 KJV

 - Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?

  - For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a free woman.

  - But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the free woman was by promise.

  - Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.

 -  For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

  - But Yerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.


Yerusalem - Strong's G2419 -Ἰερουσαλήμ - Ierousalēm - Of Hebrew origin יְרוּשָׁלַם (H3389)


Hebrew origin יְרוּשָׁלַם (H3389) - A dual (in allusion to its two main hills [the true pointing,

at least of the former reading, seems to be that ofיְרוּשְׁלֵם (H3390)]), probably from

(the passive participle of) יָרָה (H3384) andשָׁלַם (H7999)



  • Yerusalem = "teaching of peace"

    the chief city of Palestine and capital of the united kingdom and the nation of Judah after the split


free - Strong's G1658 - eleutheros - ἐλεύθερος - Probably from the alternate of ἔρχομαι (G2064) - 

  • freeborn

    in a civil sense, one who is not a slave

    of one who ceases to be a slave, freed, manumitted

 - For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband.

- Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.

- But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now.

- Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.

- So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.


Rom 8:33 KJV

- Who shall lay any thing to the charge of Yahweh's elect? [It is] Yahweh that justifieth.
