O my God, make them like a wheel; as the stubble before
the wind. As the fire burneth a wood, and as
the flame setteth the mountains on fire; So persecute them with thy tempest, and make them
afraid with thy storm. Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek thy name, O LORD.
Psalm 83:13 (Inner Cycle: Spoke 17, Cycle 4)
The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters: but
God shall rebuke them, and they shall flee far off, and shall be chased as the chaff
of the mountains before the wind, and like a rolling thing before the whirlwind.
Isaiah 17:13 (Inner Wheel: Spoke 17, Cycle 1)
The word translated as "before" is L'Pani". It is based on the Peh KeyWord
When researching the correlation between
Isaiah 17 and Esther, the many links between
elements of Spoke 17 on the Inner Cycle of the Psalms began popping up. The verses above are
linked by a KeyLink based on (Galgal, Wheel)
and (Ruach, Wind/Spirit).
This is a Spoke 17 Inner Cycle KeyLink because 83 = 174 (Spoke 17, Cycle 4).
|KeyLink: As a wheel before God's Wind|
|PIsaiah( 171, 13 ) PPsalms( 174, 13 )|
This is actually a two-dimensional KeyLink involving both Chapter and Verse numbers. The points
from both the InnerWheel of Isaiah and the Inner Cycle of the Psalms
project onto the
common point P(17, 13).
There are many other links between Isaiah 17, Psalm 83, and other elements of Spoke 17. The word Hamah
(Strongs #1993) is a
Key to this integration. It is found three times in various forms in Isaiah 17.12 above, and it also is
found in Psalm 83.2, which means that the link based on the Wheel and Wind is amplified by the
root Hamah. But taking a closer look at the exact form written in
the Hebrew texts yields another
astounding insight. In Isaiah 17.12 we find the word (ye'hemayon, make a noise)
which is the qal imperfect, third person masculine plural with paragogic nun.
Exactly the same word is found in Psalm 83.2, translated as make a tumult.
As it turns out, while the
root Hamah appears in 32 verses, this exact form occurs in only 3: Psalm 39, Psalm 83, and Isaiah 17. All three
occurrences are on Spoke 17 of the Inner Cycles of Psalms and Isaiah! Here are the passages
where this word is found:
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult (ye'hemahyon): and
they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise (ye'hemahyon) like the
noise (Hamah) of the seas;
and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted (ye'hemahyon)
in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
This means we have this threefold KeyLink based on the theme of Hamah, and the specific word ye'hemayon:
||KeyLink: Yehemahyon: Making A Tumult |
Psalm 174 |
These links are highly significant because they are closely related to the great and mysterious
occurrence of Hamon (multitude) in Isaiah 17.12, which is
supernaturally linked to
the story of the wicked Haman who attempts to destroy the Jews in the
Book of Esther (Book 17) and with the multitude that are blessed by God through Abraham in
Yet the mystery gets deeper still. Esther 3.1 declares that
Haman was "the son of Hammedatha the Agagite" and 1 Samuel 15.8 says that Agag was
"king of the Amalekites" and Amalek appears in one and only one Psalm which just happens to be
Psalm 83! Beginning in verse 1 we read:
Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult (Hamah): and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden
They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel
may be no more in remembrance. For they have consulted together with one consent:
they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and
the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the
inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
The Rabibinnical understanding of the relation between Amalek, Haman, and Purim is discussed on
in the article Hanging Haman:
The Commandment to Wipe-Out Amalek on the National Jewish Outreach Program site.
The thematic integration of these verses with the Isaiah 17 and the Book of Esther is truly astounding.
Unfortunately, I am a finite man and I don't have time to document all the links right now.
Pray the Lord will give me strength and wisdom in this work, so that I may publish the wonderful works
of the Lord!
