Isaiah 55 2 Timothy
8) For [Ki] my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the
9) For [Ki] as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so [ken] are my ways higher than your ways,
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
10) For as [Ki ka-asher] the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven,
and returneth not thither, but [ki] watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud,
that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
11) So [Keyn] shall my word be that goeth
forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but [ki] it shall accomplish that
which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
12) For [Ki] ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and
the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap
their hands [Kaph!].
Spoke 11, Cycle 3
These five consecutive verses from Isaiah 55 read like a set of
Kaph Alphabetic Verses. Each verse begins with
a Kaph KeyWord, and the last word of verse 12 is itself the name of the eleventh letter (Kaph)!
Four verses open with
(Ki, S# H3588) which God used in three consecutive
Alphabetic Verses (AV Lam 3:31, 32, 33). The remaining verse 11 opens
with (ken, S# H3651), which means right, so, surely, and so forth. It is used repeatedly in Genesis 1 in
the phrase "Vayahi ken" meaning "and it was so" (cf. GR 101) which follows many of the
divine creative utterances. Exactly the same theme manifests with perfect clarity in verse 11
above which uses Keyn to describe the absolute certainty that God's Word will not fail. We also
see the Kaph prefix, meaning "as" or "like," appearing in the second word of verse 10 in the
The theme of Isaiah 55 reflects one of the most famous and direct declarations of the divine inspiration
of Scripture, which is found in its correspoonding book, 2 Timothy, on Spoke 11, Cycle 3. We read
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for
doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man
of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
This is discussed further in the article on Isaiah 11 and The Crown of Righteousness.
