Twenty-two Foundation letters: He placed them in a circle like a wall with 231 gates. The Circle oscillates back and forth. A sign for this is: There is nothing in good higher than Delight (Oneg – ); There is nothing in evil lower than Plague (Nega – )
Sepher Yetzirah 2.2
The Sepher Yetzirah, (Book of Creation) refers to the lines connecting each pair of Hebrew letters as gates. Rabbinic tradition teaches that systematic meditation upon the various combinations will open the mind to the mysteries of God. In the context of the Wheel, we can see that such mediation will lead to insight into the meaning of each letter, hence the meaning of each Spoke, and from there, we will gain insight into the meaning of the Word of God, and so come to know a little more of God himself, who is the greatest mystery of all.
Below are a few examples of how deeply self-integrated the Hebrew language really is. The examples given show how the meanings of KeyWords emerges from the meaning of letters being combined, and how all of this integrates with the geometric structure of the Wheel.
(Beyt - Aleph) Bo:Enter In
Binary combinations with Aleph usually reveal the essence of the leading letter. This is particularly evident with the Second Letter (Beyt, House), which serves to represent the preposition in when prefixed to a word. When combined with Aleph, it forms the word Bo which means to go in, enter, come, go, or come in. This coheres beautifully with both the meaning of its name (a house is a natural symbol of a place to go in) and its grammatical function as the preposition "in."
Bo first appears in Genesis 2 and so integrates with the chapter seqence of Genesis. Likewise, it appears (as a root) twice in the first verse of Exodus, the Second Book, in conjuction with two other highly significant Beyt KeyWords: House (Beyt, Name of the Second Letter) and Ben (Son, Name of the Second Person of the Godhead, translated as "children"):
Now these are the names of the children (Ben) of Israel, which came into (Bo) Egypt; every man and his household (Beyt) came with (Bo) Jacob.
(Beyt - Nun) Ben:Son
The Fourteenth Letter Nun means perpetuity. This manifests in the Beyt KeyWord Ben, which is analyzed as:
(Ben, Son) = (Beyt, House) and (Nun, Posterity)
In plain English, the Son is he who represents the Posterity of the House. This integrates with the theology of the Trinity, as it is written in the Book of Hebrews on Spoke 14:
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
(Dalet - Mem) Dam:Blood
Genesis 4 contains the first occurrences of four concepts: Birth, Death, Blood and Door. This coheres with the meaning of the name of the Fourth letter (Dalet, Door) and manifests in the Dalet KeyWord (Dam, Blood) which is analyzed as:
(Dam, Blood) = (Dalet, Door of Birth/Death) . (Mem, Water)
In simple English, Blood is the "water" (liquid) that issues forth when one passes through the Universal Door.
(Tsaddi - Aleph) Tsey!:Go Forth!
The essence of the eighteenth letter Tsaddi is seen when it is combined with Aleph to form the command "Go forth!" Thus the Gospel goes forth on Spoke 18 in the Book of Matthew, which ends with the Great Commission:
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
This further ingtegrates with Spoke 18 of the Inner Wheel of Isaiah, where the Gospel goes forth.
(Resh - Ayin) Rayah:Shepherd
Rayah is easily analyzed as follows:
(Rayah, Shepherd) = (Resh, Chief/Head) and (Ayin, Eye)
Thus we see the Shepherd as the Chief Eye - that is, the Overseerer, or Bishop. The Letter Ayin governs the themes of Spoke 16, which is most clearly seen in the books of Zechariah and 1 Peter.
