Shemot "Names" Exodus 1:1-6:1    
Published 29th Day 10th Month 5772    
  • 1:1 These are the names of the people of Israel who came to
    Egypt, each man and his household came with Ya'akov
The tribes are now listed, those that went to Egypt. Yosef's sons, Manasseh and Ephraim although blessed and
to be tribes themselves, are still not listed as the tribal leaders at this point. Yosef makes up the twelfth son

  • 1:2 Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah 3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin 4 Dan and Naphtali, Gad and
    Asher 5 All the people that issued from the loins of Jacob were seventy people, including Yosef, who was
    already in Egypt

Yosef died, died with all his brothers and that entire generation (1:6).  Whilst on the one hand the generation of the
tribal heads, Yosef and Ya'akov died, the people began to multiply in an extraordinary way

  • 1:7 And the children of Yisrael were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed
    exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them

A new King is now over Egypt who does not recognise the work of Yosef. HaShem is not purposely enslaving
them out of evil, but rather the works of evil people taking root.

  • 1:9 And he said unto his people: Behold the people of the children of Israel are to many and too mighty for
    us;10 Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our
    enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.”

When evil hearts once again get the reigns of power and control, or apparent control, it is the people of HaShem
who are always targeted, the innocent rather than the guilty. Its important to note that the ones who "crossed over"
- Hebrews that are doing the work of Ha-Shem and the Torah. The emphasis is on the Torah and not a particular
tribe or peoples or person. All must be subservient to the Torah and it is the Torah that is the shining light

  • 1:16 When you do the office of midwife to the Hebrew women, you shall look upon the birth stones; if it be
    son, then you shall kill him: but if it be a daughter, then she shall live. But the midwives feared God, and
    did not as the King of Mizrayim commanded them, but saved the men children alive

HaShem rewards the righteous and compassionate. The midwives were Egyptian, but their hearts were maybe
still full of Joseph's works in Egypt and could see the difference between the spiritual qualities of the Hebrews
and HaShem, and the barbarism of Paganism unchecked. HaShem at times uses his name as judge in the
Biblical Hebrew...Elohim. Elohim is a plural for majesty and for example it is used in this verse when the
midwives had reverence for the laws of nature

  • 1:17 But the midwives feared before the Lord and did not do as the king of Egypt had told them; and they
    saved the boys

The midwives happened to be the right people in the right place at the right time and so prevented a massacre of
Hebrew children. They gave an excuse as to why they never carried out their instructions from and evil tyrant. The
blessings were houses for the midwives

  • 1:19 And the midwives said to Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Mizrian women, for
    they are lively, and are delivered before the midwives come to them 20 Therefore God dealt well with the
    midwives: and the people multiplied, and grew very mighty. And it came to pass, because the midwives
    feared God, that he made them houses

Moshe's Birth and Anointing: the greatest prophet of all is now born In this Torah Portion. Moshe and his elder
brother Aaron are Levites

  • 2:1 And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took a wife a daughter of Levi 2 And the woman
    conceived, and bore a son: and when she saw that he was goodly child, she hid him for three months

Moshe's mother Yokheved, on first inspection of Moshe sees he is healthy and strong (good). Symbolically,
Moshe is good before HaShem because he is without sin. When we are born we are without sin. It is this root
point that we must return to through Torah study and acceptance to be born again in Gods image (Gen 1:27).
Moshe would depend largely on his upbringing to keep him close to Torah study and HaShem.
Our parents have this responsibility also, to keep Torah.The other time we read that HaShem
declares his work as good, is in the beginning Gen 1:3. Moses kills an Egyptian for beating a
Judean man and flees Egypt for fear of Pharaoh's reprisal...he marries Zipporah and has a son,
Gershom (2:11-22). It is people who do evil things, not HaShem who is a G-d of justice and

  • 2:24 Their groaning was heard before the Lord, and the Lord remembered His covenant
    with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob 25 The Israelites servitude was revealed before
    the Lord, and He said with His memra (word or wisdom) that the Lord should redeem them

The Divine Name: Moshe is given a divine revelation at Horeb (3:1). Moshe was like no other
prophet, having a proximity to HaShem that no other had. We can read that whilst others when
speaking of angels had a dream..not so with Moshe.
Even Moshe never saw HaShem in his all
encompassing Deity, this is beyond imagination. Moshe is on Horeb and before the likeness of the
Lord. The element of fire which was created in the beginning and is again the manner of a divine
revelation. The middle of the bush is aflame and the bush not consumed. So our hearts are given
to Torah study

  • 3:2 And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush:
    and he looked, and, beheld, the bush burned with fire, but the bush was not consumed 3
    And Moshe said, I will now turn aside, and see this great site, why the bush is not burnt

HaShem did not send the Hebrews to Egypt to have them brutalized.

  • 3:9 Now the cry of the Israelites has reached Me; moreover, I have seen how the Egyptians
    oppress them 10 Come, therefore, I will send you to Pharaoh, and you shall free My people,
    the Israelites, from Egypt

HaShem at Moshe's request, gives him the manner in which is to be know to mankind. HaShem
states that he is who he is and wants to be. We however are determined by HaShem in all his
greatness. HaShem will reveal himself as a G-d of nature and his name to us is how he manifests
himself through his creation of nature and wonders

  • 3:14 Thereupon G-d said to Moshe "Ehyeh asher Ehyeh" (I shall be that which I wish to be)
    He said "This is what you shall say to the sons of Israel: Ehyeh has sent me 15 And God
    said moreover to Moshe, Thus shalt thou say to the children of Yisrael, The Lord God of your
    fathers, the God of Avraham the God of Yizhaq, and the God of Ya'akov, has sent me to you:
    this is My name for ever, and this is My memorial to all generations

In anointing Moshe and so the house of Yisrael, HaShem was to show all, the manner of his nature
and command over all things. Moshe asked how he would be able to demonstrate his anointing to
Pharaoh and the Hebrews. HaShem is not  a magician like Pharaoh's mystics but deity over all
creation. HaShem can will at anytime what he wants as he did when he created the universe from

  • 34:4 Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The Lord did
    not appear to you’?” 2 Then the Lord said to him, “What is that in your hand?” “A staff,” he
    replied. 3 The Lord said, “Throw it on the ground.” Moses threw it on the ground and it
    became a snake, and he ran from it. 4 Then the Lord said to him, “Reach out your hand and
    take it by the tail.” So Moses reached out and took hold of the snake and it turned back into a
    staff in his hand. 5 “This,” said the Lord, “is so that they may believe that the Lord, the God of
    their fathers—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob—has appeared
    to you.” 6 Then the Lord said, “Put your hand inside your cloak.” So Moses put his hand into
    his cloak, and when he took it out, the skin was leprous[a]—it had become as white as
    snow. 7 “Now put it back into your cloak,” he said. So Moses put his hand back into his
    cloak, and when he took it out, it was restored, like the rest of his flesh.

HaShem is deity over the laws of nature and as such he caused Pharaoh to stiffen his heart
against Moshe because Pharaoh was used to and wanted to develop bad behaviour toward
Moshe. As such Hashem created these side of peoples nature but it was Pharaoh who made evil
toward the Hebrews when he could have chosen to act properly.  

  • 4:21 And the Lord said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before
    Pharaoh all the miracles that I have put in your power. But I will harden his heart, so that he
    will not let the people go.

The Abrahamic House is the Holy priesthood and Holy nation. To be part of the House of Israel
anyone can accept written Torah that is about to be given to Moshe at Sinai. HaShem reiterates that
the people of the Abrahamic covenant of circumcision are his first born

  • 4:22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, "Thus says the lord: Israel is My first-born son 23 I have
    said to you, "Let My son go, that he may worship Me," yet you refuse to let him go. Now I will
    slay your first-born son."

No one is indispensable. Moshe in order to lookout for his wife Zipporah, never circumcised his
son and almost lost his life for this act

  • 4:24 At a lodging place on the way the Lord met him and sought to put him to death. 25 Then
    Zipporah took a flint and cut off her son's foreskin and touched Moses' feet with it and said,
    “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me!” 26 So he let him alone. It was then that she
    said, “A bridegroom of blood,” because of the circumcision.  

The word HaShem means in Hebrew..the name. The anointing of Moshe as it does all who accept
the Torah, allows one to understand HaShem as a G-d of nature. In his infinite greatness and all
knowing capacity above what we as people can ever understand, HaShem will reveal himself and
gain acceptance by the most humble of hearts when they can remove the veil of unrighteousness
from before their hearts. As with Moshe when he omitted to circumcise his newly born son after 8
days and was almost killed by HaShem, it was out of love for Moshe that HaShem did what he did
and caused Moshe's wife Zipporah to remove the foreskin. HaShem created the universe, and
whilst many do like the way he has created it that is the way that it is. It is men who make evil and
not HaShem and using lower thought by trying to replace HaShem with their own appointed gods,
they have rebelled against the laws of nature. This rebellion is Christian based in the western
powers. The light is infused into the darkness and for eternity only those with the commitment for
the light and truth will make the effort to get into it.

  • 6:1 Then the Lord said to Moses, Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh; for with a
    strong hand shall he let them go, and by a mighty arm shall he drive them out of his land
