Shemoth/Exodus 33:18 “Then he said, “Please, show me Your esteem.”
These were the words of Mosheh to יהוה, when he asked יהוה to show him His esteem! Tonight I want to take a closer look at this often overlooked concept of “esteem”, and more specifically,” the esteem of יהוה”, as we are able to see a very clear thread throughout the Scriptures that give us clarity and insight into the esteem of יהוה. Therefore in a brief message called, “The esteem of יהוה”, we will take a closer look at what this means and how we are able to recognise and identify the very ‘esteem of יהוה’. I want to also make it very clear that this is in no way an exhaustive teaching on this topic but is rather a teaching that will hopefully stir in each of you the desire and passion to dig deeper into the wonderful revelation of our Master and Elohim and find great pearls of wisdom from within His written Word that equips us to walk in Him and give the proper praise and esteem to His Name!
When Mosheh asked to see the esteem of יהוה, many people are often confused as to what was being asked as we take note that יהוה spoke to Mosheh ‘face to face’, as we see earlier in the chapter I quoted from:
Shemoth/Exodus 33:11 “Thus יהוה spoke to Mosheh face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he would return to the camp, but his servant Yehoshua son of Nun, a young man, did not leave the Tent.”
This can often be a bit of a stumbling block to some, as we clearly see from Scripture that יהוה spoke to Mosheh face to face, yet when Mosheh asked יהוה to show him His esteem, יהוה gave the following answer:
Shemoth/Exodus 33:19-20 “And He said, “I shall cause all My goodness to pass before you, and I shall proclaim the Name of יהוה before you. And I shall favour him whom I favour, and shall have compassion on him whom I have compassion.” 20 But He said, “You are unable to see My face, for no man does see Me and live.”
Some may argue that the context of these verses simply show the figurative language of the special relationship Mosheh had with יהוה and that he may not have literally seen His face, and that while יהוה did speak to Mosheh directly and not through dreams and visions, he did not see the face of יהוה. However, the text is very clear that יהוה literally spoke to Mosheh face to face, just like men would speak! So what is going on here? יהוה spoke with Mosheh face to face and when Mosheh asked יהוה to reveal His esteem, He said that Mosheh was unable to see His face, for no man does see Him and live! While this may be very confusing at first, I firmly believe that Scripture gives us great insight as to what is really being spoken here, and how we are able to see the esteem of יהוה.
Listen to what יהוה does say to Mosheh:
Shemoth/Exodus 33:23- “And יהוה said, “See, there is a place with Me! And you shall stand on the rock. 22 “And it shall be, while My esteem passes by, that I shall put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand while I pass by. 23 “Then I shall take away My hand and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen.”
What we need to understand in the context of Mosheh’s asking for the esteem of יהוה to be revealed must be grasped in the context of his discussion with יהוה. He reasoned with יהוה that he had been instructed to bring this nation up, yet he said to יהוה that He had not made known to Mosheh who was going with him and after being reassured by יהוה that His presence is going and that He would give them rest, Mosheh says that if the presence of יהוה does not go then he did not want יהוה to lead them up from where they were! Mosheh did not want to take one step forward without the presence of יהוה, and in a clear cry of submission and acknowledgement of who יהוה is, Mosheh asks to see His esteem! Mosheh wanted the reassurance that their Redeemer, Elohim and Mighty King of Hosts was going with them, and He therefore wanted to see this Mighty King in His fullness!
The Hebrew word for ‘esteem’ is כָּבוֹד kaḇoḏ – Strong’s H3519 which means, ‘honour, esteem, reverence, splendid’, which comes from the root verb כָּבֵד kaḇeḏ – Strong’s H3513 which means, ‘to be heavy, weighty or burdensome, to give high esteem and respect and honour’, and is often translated as ‘praise’ that is to be given to יהוה!
The word כָּבוֹד kaḇoḏ – Strong’s H3519 can also have the understanding of, ‘the manifestation of power’, which represents the fullness of the power or strength of the One who is lifted up and exalted.
In a desperate seeking of the full manifestation of the power and esteem of יהוה, Mosheh was given a clear directive to stand on the rock and that when the esteem of יהוה passed by that יהוה would put him in the cleft of the rock and cover him with His Hand – for this is the promise יהוה gave when he declared – “See, there is a place with Me!”
The Hebrew word for ‘place’ is מָקוֹם maqom – Strong’s H4725 which means, ‘standing place, place, home, country, ground’. There is a standing ground upon which we can see Him, and that is as we stand on the Rock!
The use of this terminology is clear in declaring the manifestation of the esteem of Elohim, as seen through His Hand that covers us and secures us in Him, as we stand on Him, our Rock and Refuge, which is a clear reference and shadow picture of יהושע Messiah!
‘The Rock’ is הַצּוּר ‘hatsur’, and in the ancient pictographic script it looks like this:
Hey – הַ:
This letter is used to express ‘The’, and the original pictograph for this letter is , which is a man standing with his arms raised out. The meaning of the letter is ‘behold, look, breath, sigh and reveal or revelation’, from the idea of revealing a great sight by pointing it out. It also carries for us the meaning of surrender as we lift up our hands and submit to יהוה as we lift our hands in praise, declaring His authority under which we humbly submit!
Tsadey – צּ:
The Ancient picture for this letter is , which is ‘a man on his side’, and it can represent the act of lying on one’s side in order to hunt or chase, when crouching I concealment, as well as ‘laying one’s self down for another’. We can also see how this can represent that which comes forth from the side! This can also picture for us a fish hook, giving us the meaning of ‘hunt or fish’.
Waw/vav – וּ:
The Ancient picture for this letter is , which is pictured as a peg or ‘tent peg’, which was used for securing or tying the tent or other items. The possibility of it having a Y-shape is to show that it prevents the rope form slipping off. The root meaning of this letter is ‘to add, secure or hook’.
Resh – ר:
The Ancient picture for this letter is , ‘the head of a man’. This letter has the meanings of ‘head or man’ as well as ‘chief, top, beginning or first’.
As we consider this word used in Scripture for ‘The Rock’, when looking at the ancient pictographic letters we are able to render the following meaning when understanding that this is a clear prophetic shadow picture of Messiah, The Rock in whom we find strength:
Behold, the One who shall lay down His life for us and secure for us the Covenant, is our Elohim and Head.
It is upon the Rock that the esteem is revealed!
When we consider this Hebrew word for ‘esteem’ – כָּבוֹד kaḇoḏ – Strong’s H3519 in the ancient script we gain further insight in the revelation of the esteem of יהוה.
In the ancient pictographic script the word כָּבוֹד kaḇoḏ looks like this:
Kaph – כָּ:
The ancient form of this letter is – meaning ‘the open palm of a hand’. The meaning behind this letter is ‘to bend and curve’ from the shape of a palm as well as ‘to tame or subdue’ as one has been bent to another’s will (under their hand), as an open hand symbolises submission. This also can picture for us a palm or palm branch from the curved palm shape. The hand also speaks of one’s work, or under whose hand you submit and obey, and can also speak of a covering, as in the covering of a hand.
Beyt – ב:
The ancient script has this letter as , which pictures a tent floor plan and means, ‘house’ or ‘tent’. It represents family and the importance of those who are inside the tent as opposed to the tent structure itself, and is the Dwelling Place of the Most High, which we are, as we are as living stones being built up in Messiah.
Waw – וֹ:
The ancient pictographic form of this letter is , which is a peg or ‘tent peg’ or nail, which was used for securing or tying the tent or other items. The possibility of it having a Y-shape is to show that it prevents the rope form slipping off. The root meaning of this letter is ‘to add, secure or hook’.
Dalet – ד:
The ancient script has this letter as and is pictured as a ‘tent door’. It can also have the meaning of ‘a back and forth movement’, as one goes back and forth through a tent door, and so speaks of an access point. It can also carry the meaning of ‘dangle’ or hanging as the tent door would hang from the roof pole of the tent. It speaks a great deal in terms of understanding the door of the tent of appointment as the only means of access.
When we look at these pictographic letters for ‘esteem’ we are able to see some wonderful insight into the esteem of יהוה being revealed to us. The collective rendering of these pictographic letters can give us the meaning:
The covering of the House that has been secured and entrance given!
We also take note that we are able to recognise that the esteem we are to give to Elohim, and Elohim alone, is because He is the builder of the House! By His Hand He has built us and by His Mighty Saving Hand He has secured for us an entrance into His presence, as we are built up in Him who is greater than the House! For the builder of the House is greater that the House! We are the dwelling Place and He is the Master Builder who covers us as we take our stand upon Him, our Rock and Refuge!
As we consider the rendering of this word for ‘esteem’ we are able to see from Scripture a clear revelation of the esteem of יהוה our Elohim. We take note of the very striking words of Messiah as He spoke to the Pharisees who were accusing His taught ones for breaking the Sabbath when they went through the grain fields on the Sabbath and began to pluck heads of grain, to eat.
Mattithyahu/Matthew 12:6 “But I say to you that in this place there is One greater than the Set-apart Place.”
The One who is greater than the House was in their midst!
In Speaking of יהושע Messiah, in the letter to the Iḇ’rim/Hebrews we see, in:
Iḇ’rim/Hebrews 3:3-6 “For this One has been deemed worthy of more esteem than Mosheh, as much as He who built the house enjoys more respect than the house. 4 For every house is built by someone, but He who built all is Elohim. 5 And Mosheh indeed was trustworthy in all His house as a servant, for a witness of what would be spoken later, 6 but Messiah as a Son over His own house, whose house we are if we hold fast the boldness and the boasting of the expectation firm to the end.”
Elohim is the builder and the One who built the House is worthy of more esteem than Mosheh! In a manner of speaking, Mosheh is the House, just as we are the House/Dwelling Place of Elohim, yet our Master and Elohim, יהושע Messiah, is greater than the House, for He is the builder of the House!
We also read in:
Yeshayahu/Isaiah 40:5 “And the esteem of יהוה shall be revealed, and all flesh together shall see it. For the mouth of יהוה has spoken.”
At the beginning of this Chapter 40 in Yeshayahu/Isaiah we see the clear words of Elohim saying, “ ‘Comfort, comfort My people’, says your Elohim”, and this is a very comforting assurance that is given in declaring the promise of a recovery of breath that Elohim would bring and how the Spirit of Ěliyahu would come first in preparing the way and making straight the way in the desert for our Elohim, and then we see in the verses that follow these words:
Yeshayahu/Isaiah 40:9-11 “You who bring good news to Tsiyon, get up into the high mountain. You who bring good news to Yerushalayim, lift up your voice with strength, lift it up, be not afraid. Say to the cities of Yehuḏah, “See your Elohim!” 10 See, the Master יהוה comes with a strong hand, and His arm rules for Him. See, His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him. 11 He feeds His flock like a shepherd, He gathers the lambs with His arm, and carries them in His bosom, gently leading those who are with young.”
In this clear prophecy of the esteem of יהוה being revealed we are told that the one who brings good news to Tsiyon would say to the cities of Yehuḏah, “See Your Elohim!”. The Master יהוה comes with a strong Hand, revealing the power of His esteem and it is He who feeds the flock as a Shepherd!
When Yoḥanan the Immerser, who Messiah referred to as being the Spirit of Ěliyahu having come to prepare the way, was asked by the priests and Lěwites that were sent by the Yehuḏim who he was, Yoḥanan proclaimed this passage in Yeshayahu/Isaiah 40:3.
Yoḥanan/John 1:23 “He said, “I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of יהוה,’ as the prophet Yeshayahu said.”
We then see the following written in:
Yoḥanan/John 1:29 “On the next day Yoḥanan saw יהושע coming toward him, and said, “See, the Lamb of Elohim who takes away the sin of the world!”
In a clear fulfilment of prophecy we see Yoḥanan saying to the cities of Yehuḏah, “See, the Lamb of Elohim”, as the Strong Hand and esteem of יהוה had been revealed in the form of יהושע Messiah!
Qorintiyim Bět/2 Corinthians 4:6 “For Elohim, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts for the enlightening of the knowledge of the esteem of Elohim in the face of יהושע Messiah.”
The Lamb is the lamp!
Yeshayahu/Isaiah 60:1 “Arise, shine, for your light has come! And the esteem of יהוה has risen upon you.”
The reason I am sharing these texts with you is to highlight the clear thread we see in Scripture in regards to the esteem of יהוה, and how we may be able to see His esteem! We see the clear description of the esteem of יהוה revealing to us that He is the Shepherd and Light, and how He does not give His esteem to another.
Yeshayahu/Isaiah 42:8 “I am יהוה, that is My Name, and My esteem I do not give to another, nor My praise to idols.”
יהושע Messiah tells us clearly that He is the Good shepherd and that He is the Light of the world.
Yoḥanan/John 10:11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.”
Yoḥanan/John 8:12 “Therefore יהושע spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but possess the light of life.”
Yoḥanan confirms through his witness telling us that while Yoḥanan (the Immerser), who was a man sent by Elohim, was not that light, he was the witness of the Light, and he makes it clear that יהושע Messiah is the True Light that came into the world, and we therefore are able to see the esteem of Elohim in the face of יהושע Messiah.
Yoḥanan/John 12:36-41 “While you have the light, believe in the light, so that you become sons of light.” These words יהושע spoke, and went off and was hidden from them. 37 But though He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, 38 that the word of Yeshayahu the prophet might be filled, which he spoke, “יהוה, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of יהוהbeen revealed?” 39 Because of this they were unable to believe, because again Yeshayahu said: 40 “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their heart, so that they should not see with their eyes and understand with their heart, and turn, and I should heal them.” 41 Yeshayahu said this when he saw His esteem and spoke of Him.”
The Hebrew root word for ‘revealed’ in Yeshayahu/Isaiah 40:5 that I quoted earlier which states that “the esteem of יהוה shall be revealed”, is גָּלָה galah – Strong’s H1540 and means, ‘to uncover, remove, to be uncovered, to reveal oneself’. Why I am mentioning this is to highlight how we see in Scripture both, the revealing of the esteem of Elohim, as well as the removal of His esteem!
When Shemuʼĕl was first taken to stay with Eli at the House of Elohim in Shiloh, we take note that he did not know the voice of Elohim:
Shemuʼěl Aleph/1 Samuel 3:7 “Now Shemuʼěl did not yet know יהוה , and the word of יהוה was not yet revealed to him.”
יהוה did reveal Himself to Shemuʼěl, and he became one of the most significant prophets of Elohim!
Shemuʼěl Aleph/1 Samuel 3:21“And יהוה continued to appear in Shiloh, because יהוה revealed Himself to Shemuʼěl in Shiloh by the word of יהוה.”
While Shemuʼěl grew up and grew in the knowledge of Elohim we know that Yisra’ĕl did as they pleased and the priesthood was corrupt, and on one day Eli and his two sons were killed at the Ark of Elohim was captured. It was on this day that the esteem of Elohim was removed!
Shemuʼěl Aleph/1 Samuel 4:21-22 “And she called the child Iḵaḇoḏ, saying, “The esteem has departed from Yisra’ĕl!” because the ark of Elohim was taken and because of her father-in-law and her husband. 22 And she said, “The esteem has departed from Yisra’ĕl, for the ark of Elohim was taken.”
The Hebrew word used here for ‘departed’ is גָּלָה galah – Strong’s H1540 – the same root word used for ‘revealed’, yet written in a different tense, showing us that this root word can have a different meaning when written in a different tense, as the esteem of יהוה was not uncovered or revealed or made known, but had now departed! The name of the child אִי־כָבוֹד Iḵaḇoḏ– Strong’s H350 means, ‘no esteem’ as the esteem of יהוה had departed from Yisra’ĕl!!!
By the esteem of יהוה departing we can understand this, in the context of prophecy, that “The covering of His Hand upon the House had been removed”!
From this point on in Scripture we begin to see many clear prophecies of the return of His esteem and how He will appear in His esteem.
Tehillah/Psalm 102:16 “For יהוה shall build up Tsiyon, He shall appear in His esteem.”
The Master Builder is coming again to build, and what we have been given until the fullness of His esteem is seen by all, is a sure place to stand on – that is יהושע Messiah, the Rock upon which we stand, for the Hand of יהוה has been revealed and we have been covered by His Hand by the first coming of Messiah as a humble servant! When Messiah comes again with all His Messengers we shall see His face and the fullness of His esteem!
Yoḥanan Aleph/1 John 3:2 “Beloved ones, now we are children of Elohim. And it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.”
What we have is the mirror of His Word that allows us to see His esteem, as the unveiling of our eyes by His Spirit has caused us to know Him, as we walk in His Torah – that of freedom – for the one who turns to the Master the veil is taken away!
Qorintiyim Bět/2 Corinthians 3:16-18 “And when one turns to the Master, the veil is taken away. 17 Now יהוה is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of יהוה is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, as with unveiled face we see as in a mirror the esteem of יהוה, are being transformed into the same likeness from esteem to esteem, as from יהוה, the Spirit.”
As Scripture makes it very clear to us that it is only by His Spirit that we are able to say that יהושע Messiah is Master, we recognise how His Spirit causes us who have turned to the Master to have the mystery revealed to us, enabling us to see His esteem through the clear mirror of His Word!
Qorintiyim Aleph/1 Corinthians 13:12 “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know, as I also have been known.”
The esteem of Elohim has been revealed and Yoḥanan gives us a clear witness of this as he tell us in:
Yoḥanan/John 1:14 “And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth.”
The ‘esteem’ of Elohim we saw ‘AS OF’ an only brought forth son of a father! The Greek word used here for ‘as’ is ὡς hōs – Strong’s G5613 which means, ‘as, like as, even as’, and clearly emphasises for us what we saw in terms of the esteem of Elohim, as we saw it ‘as’ a brought forth son of a father! יהוה came and showed us His esteem as of a son brought forth from a father, for the Son (Messiah) is Our everlasting Father… יהוה is our Messiah – please see articles on our site for more on this!
I have simply touched a tip of the iceberg so to speak on this very clear thread we find in Scripture in regards to the esteem of יהוה, and what I want to make clear is that the esteem that we are able to see in the mirror of the Word is in the form of our Mighty Master, Elohim and Saviour, יהושע Messiah!
As I was digging, and still continue to dig into the great wisdom of the Word, I was greatly encouraged to find this very strong thread throughout Scripture. What is very clear to us is that יהוה clearly made Himself visible at times to various people, yet the full weight of His splendour and esteem sinful man cannot look upon and live. Aḏam and Ḥawwah were cast out of the Garden of Eḏen due to sin, and they received a covering made by coast of skin. יהוה walked in the Garden, showing us that before sin Aḏam and Ḥawwah could see Him face to face, however because of sin mankind was cut off from the esteem of יהוה, with only His provision of covering until the full redemption could be completed and man be restored to Him. Many often dispute the fact that יהוה became flesh and argue that it is not possible to do so, yet we must remember that יהוה walked in the Garden, He appeared to Aḇraham, Yitsḥaq and Ya’aqoḇ. He spoke to Mosheh and what we must always remember is that man was made in the image and likeness of Elohim!!! In other words He had a form, from which image and likeness He made mankind from the dust of the earth. He is not of the dust of the earth, but we are! That image and likeness that was formed from the dust of the ground was corrupted through sin and in order for the image to completely restored it had to be dealt with in the flesh – that is of the dust of the world! Therefore our Mighty Master and Elohim took on the form of flesh – that which is made from dust – in order to redeem the corruption of His creation and put a complete end to sin through the putting to death the flesh! Please note that Elohim did not die, but He rather put to death the sinful flesh (corrupted dust) in order to restore His perfect image in man, which will be made complete at the end of this age when sin and death is destroyed!
Until that happens we have a place in Him, and that is to stand upon the Rock and be covered in His Blood as He secures His House and provides for us the clear doorway into His esteemed presence!
This יהושע Messiah who died for our sins, is that Rock and Refuge, and He is the fully revealed image and likeness of Elohim in the flesh, showing us the esteem that we are able to see dimly now, yet will one day see clearly when He comes in the fullness of His esteem as the Only True King of Kings and Master of Masters!
Timotiyos Aleph/1 Timothy 3:16 “And, beyond all question, the secret of reverence is great – Elohim was revealed in the flesh, declared right in Spirit, was seen by messengers, was proclaimed among nations, was believed on in the world, was taken up in esteem.”
Elohim was revealed in the flesh and we could get a glimpse of His esteem, for He came as a suffering servant:
Zeḵaryah/Zechariah 9:9 “Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Tsiyon! Shout, O daughter of Yerushalayim! See, your Sovereign is coming to you, He is righteous and endowed with deliverance, humble and riding on a donkey, a colt, the foal of a donkey.”
Tehillah/Psalm 24:8-10 “Who is this Sovereign of esteem? יהוה strong and mighty, יהוה mighty in battle. 9 Lift up your heads, O you gates! Even lift up, you everlasting doors! And let the Sovereign of esteem come in. 10 Who is this Sovereign of esteem? יהוה of hosts, He is the Sovereign of esteem! Selah.”
This Mighty Sovereign of esteem – came riding on a donkey, as The Mighty Revealed Hand of יהוה who builds the House came and secured for us an entrance into His reign!
Now that is certainly a sure reason why we are to esteem His Name!!!
Just like Mosheh basically told יהוה that if יהוה’s presence was not going with them then there would be no point of going forward into the inherited promise, so too must we recognise and declare who is this Sovereign of Esteem! For if we cannot recognise the clear esteem that we have been allowed to see as we stand upon the Rock then how shall we enter in? As we stay in our Master and Elohim and proclaim our Saviour and King, יהושע Messiah, The Door, may we rejoice and esteem Him with everlasting praise, as we fervently look for the blessed expectation and esteemed appearance of our Elohim and Saviour!!!
Titos/Titus 2:11-14 “For the saving Gift of Elohim has appeared to all men, 12 instructing us to renounce wickedness and worldly lusts, and to live sensibly, righteously, and reverently in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed expectation and esteemed appearance of the great Elohim and our Saviour יהושע Messiah, 14 who gave Himself for us, to redeem us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people, His own possession, ardent for good works.”
Once sin has been destroyed and death is no more and the renewed heavens and earth are revealed, we take note of the following:
Ḥazon/Revelation 21:23 “And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, to shine in it, for the esteem of Elohim lightened it, and the Lamb is its lamp.”
This is not a Scripture that says that there will no longer be a sun and moon but that the function of the sun and moon for the Appointed Times will no longer be needed, for the fullness of the esteem of Elohim will be in the midst of His creation.
The Appointed Times/Feasts of יהוה reveal and proclaim the working of His redemption for mankind unto Himself and when deliverance has been completed then the fullness of His esteem can once again be seen by man, face to face, as Ḥazon/Revelation 22:4 tells us clearly that the servants of Elohim shall see His face!
Ḥazon/Revelation 22:3-5 “And no longer shall there be any curse, and the throne of Elohim and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. 4 And they shall see His face, and His Name shall be upon their foreheads. 5 And night shall be no more, and they shall have no need of a lamp or the light of the sun, because יהוה Elohim shall give them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.”
With the term “night shall be no more”, we recognise that this is a clear metaphor for ‘sin and darkness’ and ‘ignorance’ that will be no more, as all will know the light and the fullness of His esteem will be seen by all!
What a day to look forward to! And it is with great expectation of His esteemed appearance that we continue to take our place in Him and stand on the Rock of our deliverance as his Mighty Right Hand covers us, His House!
The esteem of יהוה has been revealed, and this we can see in the mirror of His Word, as His Arm has been revealed and is mighty to save, for His Hand covers us, His House, securing for us the promise of the entrance into eternal life with Him!!!
I could certainly continue for hours on this topic by showing many more passages from Scripture, yet what I certainly hope is that you will take this message as a starting point for further studies on your own, and go and uncover more precious pearls of great price as you continue to stand firm on the Rock of our deliverance, for the esteem of יהוה has risen upon you – and The One True Master Builder, Saviour and Elohim who is greater than the House is worthy to receive all praise and esteem!
Tehillah/Psalm 66:1-2 “Shout with joy to Elohim, all the earth! 2 Sing out the splendour of His Name; make His praise esteemed.”
יהוה bless you and guard you; יהוה make His face shine upon you and show favour to you; יהוה lift up His face to and give you shalom!
