Aleph Tav Alert: Proverbs



King Solomon was the principal writer of Proverbs according to the first sentence and the word Proverbs in Hebrew means examples of or rules of. The book will forever be a look into the beautiful wisdom and character of Solomon, which was composed around 900 B.C. During Solomon’s reign the nation of Israel reached its height in spiritually, as well as politically as the worlds most superior nation, which gave glory both to Solomon and Elohims kingdom. As Israel’s reputation soared throughout the world, rulers and peoples from foreign nations traveled great distances to hear the wise king speak (1 Kings 4:34) and to see the glorious kingdom.

Aleph/Tav ALERT: Mixed within these divine words of Solomon’s wisdom we call simply Proverbs are only 33 Aleph/Tav את Symbols in a total of 31 chapters of Proverbs and 11 chapters have no Aleph/Tav’s את. So, where את are placed by Solomon they are apparently very significant. These are a few choice placements, which confirm the working of את and יהוה (Yah-head) together as ONE working with man. In Prov 3:7 Be not wise in your own eyes; fear את יהוה and depart from evil…9 Honor את יהוה with your substance and with the first-fruits of all your increase…12 For את whom יהוה loves He reproves; even as a father את son in whom he delights. Prov 5:22 His own iniquities shall capture את the wicked and he shall be held with the cords of his sin. Prov 7:4 Say to wisdom, you are my sister and call understanding את kinswoman. Prov 13:20 He that walks with את wise men, shall be wise. Prov 16:19 Better it is to be of a lowly spirit with את humble, than to divide the spoil with את arrogant…implying that את is the one who makes both the humble and the arrogant so He can either bless of chastise. Prov 17:24 Wisdom is before את him that has understanding. Proverbs 18, 19, 20, and 21 have no את. Proverbs 23:1 When you sit to eat with את a ruler, consider diligently את who is before you. Prov 24:21 My son fear את יהוה and the king; and meddle not with them that are given to change. Prov 26:19 so is the man that deceives את his neighbor and says, I was only joking…implying that when we deceive our neighbor it is as if we have deceived את יהוה (Yah-head).
