1 Hallelujah! Praise YAH! Happy are they who fear Yahweh *
and have great delight in his commandments!
2 Their descendants will be mighty in the land; *
the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3 Wealth and riches will be in their house, *
and their righteousness will last forever.
4 Light shines in the darkness for the upright; *
the righteous are merciful and full of compassion.
5 It is good for them to be generous in lending *
and to manage their affairs with justice.
6 For they will never be shaken; *
the righteous will be kept in everlasting remembrance.
7 They will not be afraid of any evil rumors; *
their heart is right; they put their trust in the Yahweh.
8 Their heart is established and will not shrink, *
until they see their desire upon their enemies.
9 They have given freely to the poor, *
and their righteousness stands fast for ever; they will hold up their head with honor.
10 The wicked will see it and be angry; they will gnash their teeth and pine away; *
the desires of the wicked will perish.
Verse one begins with the Hebrew words “hal·lū” and “yāh,” which translators of that language into English have created the word “hallelujah.” There is a perverse song (written by a Socialist Jew) named “Hallelujah,” with nary a mention of the true One God, named Yahweh. The Hebrew word “yah” (Hebrew has no capital letters) is defined as a “Proper Name,” and said to be the “name of the God of Israel.” (Strong’s) Well, the “name of the God of Israel” is Yahweh, which becomes abbreviated as “yah.” The Hebrew word “halal” means “to shine” (Strong’s), where “to shine” is a puzzling thing to say about “the God of Israel,” so they transform “to shine” into “praise.” In reality, David was divinely inspired to begin this song of praise by shouting out, “shine Yahweh.” The way one “shines Yahweh” is by being a soul married to His Spirit, so His Son’s soul (Adam-Jesus) has resurrected within one’s self-soul and that “shine” of “Yahweh” is a Saint who walks as Jesus reborn into flesh (even well before Jesus came and left in his flesh). To place emphasis on this shout of praise, David wrote a vertical bar after “yāh,” telling the singer to let that note ring long.
Where the translation in verse one sings “happy,” the Hebrew construct written is “’aš·rê” (from “esher”), meaning “happiness, blessedness.” (Strong’s) More often than not, this word is shown to mean “blessed,” which rings true loudly, after pausing to reflect on “shining Yahweh.” To “shine Yahweh” means one has become “blessed” by the presence of Yahweh’s Spirit and the resurrection of His Son’s soul. Certainly, that “blessed” state of being would lead to an accompanying state of “happiness,” but to say “happy are they who fear Yahweh” makes it seem possible to find “happiness” without the commitment of spiritual marriage of a soul to Yahweh.
Where it says “fear” of “Yahweh” is what leads to one’s soul being “blessed,” this means marriage to Yahweh is motivated by the command that one’s soul will “fear” only Yahweh. If one “fears” not having money or not being powerful or not having someone be attracted to one, then one will begin worshiping the demon spirits of the world, for “fear” of not being rich, influential, and sexually attractive. Those “fears” will turn one away from seeking Yahweh in divine union; so, one’s soul will not be “blessed,” meaning true “happiness” (from eternal life) will not be found.
When verse one ends by singing “delight in his commandments,” the “commandments” (construct of “mitsvah”) are the Covenant brought down the mountain by Moses. The Commandments are the terms of marriage that all individual souls must agree with. One Commandment is “Thou shall fear only Yahweh.” All other Commandments must be written on the walls of one’s heart (i.e.: soul), which is done by a wife-soul of Yahweh being joined (divine possession) by the soul of Adam-Jesus. That most holy soul leads one’s soul-body to obey ALL Commandments, without having to think about them. Thus, memorization of the Covenant is good practice and seen as attractive by Yahweh (so all Jews must memorize the Covenant as children), leading Him to propose Holy Matrimony to those souls proving sincerity and love. The “delight” is the when the wedding takes place and two are joined as one – the ‘all tingly with Spirit Baptism time.’
In verse two, the word translated as “land, earth” (“erets”) should be (always in Old Testament Scripture) read as “flesh.” This is because “flesh” is metaphorically made from dirt, dust and clay – all dead matter that become animated by the breath of life (an eternal soul) breathed into that worldly prison at birth. As such, verse two sings, “mighty in flesh will be his offspring ; dwelling in the upright will be blessed .” This is then a confirmation of the “blessed” state in verse one, now said to be from the presence of Yahweh’s Son (“the mighty”) returned to be “in flesh,” where Yahweh’s “offspring” are the multiplicity of Adam-Jesuses reborn “in flesh.” With the soul of Yahweh’s Son “dwelling in flesh,” then those wife-souls will be held “upright” in their actions (this “uprightness” is the truth to the meaning of “the cross of Jesus”), as the Son’s soul will stake their bodies of flesh “upright.” To then be righteous is to be “blessed.”
In verse three, this element of “righteousness” is stated, as coming from a “sufficiency of riches in this house.” Here, the “house” (like “earth”) is metaphor for the tabernacle that is one’s body of flesh. There will be no lack of sustenance (spiritual food and living waters) that a wife-soul (in male and female bodies of flesh) needs to feel “blessed.” This inner presence becomes the “riches” that extend eternally, not locked into only lasting in the material plane. A high priest’s soul within makes “this house” become the tabernacle that is the “house” of Yahweh. When David then sang, “this righteousness endures forever,” this says “righteousness” is only motivated through the spiritual presence of Yahweh’s eternal Son – His elohim Adam (a.k.a. Jesus). Only the spiritual can “endure forever,” which a soul is. However, trapped in a body of flesh makes a soul alone imprisoned to the death of the “earth.” Only the eternal soul of Adam-Jesus in possession of one’s wife-soul to Yahweh can free it from the realm of death, granting a soul eternal life through a return to be one with Yahweh.
Verse four sings that a soul alone exists in “darkness,” where an absence of “light” means no access to the truth of Yahweh’s Word. Divine possession by the Son’s soul brings in the “light” of truth, which begins to raise the fallen into an “upright” position, where good fruit can then be produced. This inner presence brings with his soul graciousness, compassion and righteous ways to live.
When verse five begins with the word meaning “good” (“towb”), one must remember how Jesus told the young, rich man who addressed Jesus as “good teacher,” “Only God is good.” The “goodness” of Yahweh is sewn into the fabric of His Son’s soul, so the presence of the Son makes the “good man” of Yahweh project His image. To worship the reflection is to turn away from Yahweh. The “good man” can never be “good” without Yahweh’s presence within. When David sang about this “good man deals graciously and joins,” this is the divine possession of his soul with a host soul, with the Son becoming the Lord of both host soul and its body of flesh. As the Lord of that soul-flesh, “he will guide the affairs with discretion,” which means as judged by Yahweh.
Verse six then sings of how marriage to Yahweh will be lasting, with no divorce ever desired. This sings that the union of a soul with Yahweh’s Spirit and the possession by His Son’s soul will never grow tiresome. It will always be sought. It will always be pleasing. A soul will never ‘retire’ from ministry or ‘take a leave of absence,’ in order to catch one’s breath. Only those who work too hard making up lies about their piety need such ‘time off.” Their souls never married Yahweh and they were never reborn as His Son; so, a true Saint is always looking for another assignment from Yahweh, in order to serve Him more and more.
In verse seven, one needs to recall the story of David when he was a boy and the entire army of Israel was trembling with fear. Even Sul, the king, was afraid to do battle with the giant, because they knew a loss would occur. This speaks loudly of the hearts of men who have not married Yahweh, received His cleansing Spirit and been reborn as His Son’s soul within their flesh. The element of “evil” can only exist in the world. It cannot join with the Spiritual realm of the divine. Saints are souls married to Yahweh and only fear losing that relationship. They are reborn as the Son in the flesh of the world for the purpose of confronting evil and defeating it, with no fears whatsoever that evil will triumph over the Son. To say they have the utmost “trust” in Yahweh’s protection says the truth of faith has come to them from personal experience of the Spirit and the Son. They do not enter battle having only read about the divine in books or told about beliefs to hold dear by others. They know the truth and have faith.
The strength of this faith comes from the presence of Yahweh’s Son’s soul “established in the heart” (i.e.: soul). The presence of Adam-Jesus within makes one a Saint in that name. The Son of Yahweh has the Mind of Christ (or Messiah), which is the Spirit of Yahweh making the Son the voice of Him. There is absolutely “no fear” of evil, as Yahweh knows all. The brains of the enemy will be known and revealed to the Son. This will lead the Son to command the flesh to act accordingly, to defeat the evil plots of one’s enemy.
Verse nine then sings about the ministry of Saints. They are “disbursed abroad,” so the do as Jesus commissioned his disciples, sent out in his name to spread the truth of Scripture. When we sing, “he has given to the poor,” this is not Jesus handing out promises to pay off the student loans of “the poor.” The meaning of “the poor” is all souls who are starved of spiritual food and living waters by false shepherds and hired hands, none of who have ever considered marrying their souls to Yahweh and becoming Saints in the name of His Son. Once a soul has been reborn as the Son, that “righteousness endures forever,” through the promise of eternal life after the dead body of flesh falls away. The “horns” that announce a soul’s return to be one with Yahweh will blare in “honor of an exalted” soul’s return.
Verse ten then sings of the opposite result, which will come from Judgement to all souls of the “wicked.” They will have happen to them as Jesus often said would happen to evil souls, where “the gnashing of teeth,” “grieving,” melting away” and “perishing” are all statements of the return of a soul into the physical realm – reincarnation. A soul has no “teeth to gnash,” so a return into an adult body that will find physical punishment for past sins the “gnashing of teeth” that denotes much anger (at self). The “grief” will be from recalling on Judgment day all the times that lost soul heard the truth of Yahweh spoken to him or her, but that soul refused to listen (often acting out with persecution of the innocent). The “melting away” will be the death of an old body of flesh, which might have secured large amounts of material possessions and great esteem as a ruler. However, all that will be lost in death, with Judgment meaning a return life in the flesh where the challenges of having too much will be replaced by the challenges of having too little. All challenges are agreed upon prior to reincarnation; so, the point of all challenges is to overcome them and submit to Yahweh in spiritual marriage. To “perish” then means to return, over and over again, into a body of flesh bound to die at some time, with the clock always ticking as a sign a soul must forego the entrapments of the material realm in order to be set free. The truth will set a soul free; but the truth can only come from personally joining with Yahweh – the source of all truth.
