Whom is This? The heart of Daniel – Day 2

The Lord opened my eyes to see the beauty of His Son Jesus while reading Daniel Chapter 10.  – Day 2 – Verse 2 – Second letter of the Alphabet – Bet


“In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three weeks.” 

Daniel 10: Verse 2.

Daniel was “heartbroken”.

“Jesus wept.” John 11:35 (ESV)

“Note, Good men cannot but mourn to see how slowly the work of God goes on in the world and what opposition it meets with, how weak its friends are and how active its enemies.” quote from Matthew Henry’s Commentary on the Whole Bible.  

Bet or Beit

The letter Bet is the first letter of written in the Bible (Torah). Genesis 1:1.

The Jewish sages or teachers, see the letter as a house with a roof, floor and a back, which blocks the view of all that comes before the letter. (As it is the first letter in Scripture, nothing else should come before Scripture).

The understanding is that the front of the letter, the door of the “house” are where the words of all the Scripture is “housed”, and inside the words are all the secrets of God’s wisdom.

As my heart’s desire was to capture photos to represent the Hebrew letters, this tent was set up at Megiddo (where Solomon housed his many horses) in preparation for a children’s afternoon play. I was delighted to “see” it on our first full day in Israel:)



ps: Hebrew reads right to left; my “tent or house” is visually backwards to the letter, but it was too pretty to pass by:)

    1. Good morning Susan:) Thank you for the encouragement. The letters are not “rocket science”; with open eyes and ears, the letters do speak to me:) I just can’t but think, the very letters and language written by the finger of God cannot but glory Him and the finished work of His precious Son Jesus. Everything points to Him. I pray you are blessed today, and thank you for stopping by to have a look:) denise
