ayabah (איבה) – deep-rooted hatred; intense hostility, usually shared between enemies

Genesis 3:13-15  And YAHUAH Aluahim said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” And the woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”  (14)  And YAHUAH Aluahim said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all livestock and more than every beast of the field. On your belly you are to go, and eat dust all the days of your life.  (15)  “And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.”

Yachazaq’al (Ezekiel) 25:15-17  Thus said the Master YAHUAH, “Because the Palashatim (Philistines) have acted in vengeance, and took vengeance with scorn in their being, to destroy with lasting enmity,”  (16)  therefore thus said the Master YAHUAH, “See, I am stretching out My hand against the Palashatim, and I shall cut off the executioners and destroy the remnant of the seacoast,  (17)  and execute great vengeance on them with raging reproofs. And they shall know that I am YAHUAH, when I lay My vengeance upon them.”

Yachazaq’al (Ezekiel) 35:1-9  And the word of YAHUAH came to me, saying,  (2)  “Son of man, set your face against har Shaw’ir (Mount Seir) and prophesy against it,  (3)  and you shall say to it, ‘Thus said the Master YAHUAH, “See, O har Shaw’ir, I am against you, and shall stretch out My hand against you, and shall make you a ruin and a waste.  (4)  “Your cities I destroy, and let you be a ruin. And you shall know that I am YAHUAH.  (5)  “Because you have had a continuous enmity, and handed the children of Yashur’al over to the power of the sword at the time of their calamity, at the time of the crookedness of the end.  (6)  “Therefore, as I live,” declares the Master YAHUAH, “I shall appoint you for blood, and let blood pursue you. Since you did not hate blood, therefore blood shall pursue you.  (7)  “And I shall make har Shaw’ir a ruin and a waste, and cut off from it the one who leaves and the one who returns,  (8)  and shall fill its mountains with the slain, those slain by the sword falling on your hills and in your valleys and in all your ravines.  (9)  “I shall make you an everlasting ruin, and your cities uninhabited. And you shall know that I am YAHUAH.”

Romans 8:1-11  There is, then, now no condemnation to those who are in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.  (2)  For the Turah of the Spirit of the life in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach has set me free from the Turah of sin and of death.  (3)  For the Turah being powerless, in that it was weak through the flesh, Aluahim, having sent His own Son in the likeness of flesh of sin, and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh,  (4)  so that the righteousness of the Turah should be completed in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.  (5)  For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the matters of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the matters of the Spirit.  (6)  For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace.  (7)  Because the mind of the flesh is enmity towards Aluahim, for it does not subject itself to the Turah of Aluahim, neither indeed is it able,  (8)  and those who are in the flesh are unable to please Aluahim.  (9)  But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Aluahim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Mashyach, this one is not His.  (10)  And if Mashyach is in you, the body is truly dead on account of sin, but the Spirit is life on account of righteousness.  (11)  And if the Spirit of Him who raised YAHUSHUA from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Mashyach from the dead shall also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit dwelling in you.

Galatians 5:16-21  And I say: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not accomplish the lust of the flesh.  (17)  For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh. And these are opposed to each other, so that you do not do what you desire to do.  (18)  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under Turah.  (19)  And the works of the flesh are well-known, which are these: adultery, whoring, uncleanness, indecency,  (20)  idolatry, drug sorcery, emnity, quarrels, jealousies, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, factions,  (21)  envy, murders, drunkenness, wild parties, and the like – of which I forewarn you, even as I also said before, that those who practice such as these shall not inherit the reign of Aluahim.

Ephesians 2:11-18  Therefore remember that you, once pagans in the flesh, who are called ‘the uncircumcision’ by what is called ‘the circumcision’ made in the flesh by hands, (12)  that at that time you were without Mashyach, excluded from the citizenship of Yashur’al and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no expectation and without Aluahim in the world.  (13)  But now in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of the Mashyach.  (14)  For He is our peace, who has made both one, and having broken down the partition of the barrier,  (15)  having abolished in His flesh the enmity – the Turah of the commands in dogma – so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace,  (16)  and to completely restore to favour both of them unto Aluahim in one body through the stake, having destroyed the enmity by it.  (17)  And having come, He brought as Good News peace to you who were far off, and peace to those near.  (18)  Because through Him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.

Yaw’aqub (James) 4:1-4  Where do fightings and strivings come from among you? Do they not come from your pleasures that battle in your members?  (2)  You desire, and do not have. You murder, and are jealous, and are unable to obtain. You strive and fight, and you do not possess, because you do not ask.  (3)  You ask and do not receive, because you ask evilly, in order to spend it on your pleasures.  (4)  Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with Aluahim? Whoever therefore intends to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of Aluahim.

Your Presence


1 Chronicles 29:10-13  And Dude (David) adored YAHUAH before all the assembly. And Dude said, “Adored are You, YAHUAH Aluahim of Yashur’al, our Father, forever and ever.  (11)  “Yours, O YAHUAH, is the greatness, the power and the comeliness, the pre-eminence and the excellency, because of all that is in the heavens and in the earth. Yours is the reign, O YAHUAH, and You are exalted as head above all.  (12)  “And the riches and the esteem come from Your presence, and You rule over all. And in Your hand is power and might, and in Your hand to make great and to give strength to all.  (13)  “And now, our Aluahim, we thank You and praise Your comely Name.”

2 Chronicles 20:5-9  And Yahushaphath stood in the assembly of Yahudah and
Yurushalam, in the House of YAHUAH, in front of the new courtyard,  (6)  and said, “O YAHUAH Aluahim of our fathers, are You not Aluahim in the heavens, and do You not rule over all the reigns of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to stand against You?  (7)  “Are You not our Aluahim? You have driven out the inhabitants of this land before Your people Yashur’al, and gave it to the seed of Aburaham who loves You forever.  (8)  “And they dwell in it, and have built You a set-apart place in it for Your Name, saying,  (9)  If evil does come upon us, such as the sword, judgment, or pestilence, or scarcity of food, we shall stand before this House and in Your presence – for Your Name is in this House – and cry out to You in our distress, and You do hear and save.’

Psalms 16:8-11  I have set YAHUAH always before me; because He is at my right hand I am not shaken.  (9)  Therefore my heart was glad, and my esteem rejoices; my flesh also dwells in safety.  (10)  For You do not leave my being in hell, neither let Your Lovingly-committed One see corruption.  (11)  You show me the path of life; in Your presence is joy to satisfaction; at Your right hand are pleasures forever.

Psalms 17:1-3  Hear righteousness, YAHUAH, Listen to my cry; give ear to my prayer, from lips without deceit.  (2)  Let my right-ruling go out from Your presence; let Your eyes see what is straight.  (3)  You have examined my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me – You find I have not schemed; my mouth would not transgress.

Psalms 21:1,6-9 The sovereign rejoices in Your strength, O YAHUAH; and how greatly he exults in Your deliverance! (6) For You have made him most adored forever; You have made him glad with the joy of Your presence.  (7)  For the sovereign is trusting in YAHUAH, and through the loving-commitment of the Most High he is not moved.  (8)  Your hand reaches all Your enemies; Your right hand reaches those who hate You.  (9)  You make them as a furnace of fire in the time of Your presence; YAHUAH does swallow them up in His wrath, and fire does consume them.

Psalms 31:19-21  How great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those fearing You, which You have prepared for those taking refuge in You in the sight of the sons of men!  (20)  In the secrecy of Your presence You shall hide them from the plots of man; You shelter them in a booth from the strife of tongues.  (21)  Adored is YAHUAH, For He has made marvellous His loving-commitment to me in a strong city!

Psalms 51:10-12  Create in me a clean heart, O Aluahim, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.  (11)  Do not cast me away from Your presence, and do not take Your Set-apart Spirit from me.  (12)  Restore to me the joy of Your deliverance, and uphold me, Noble Spirit!

Psalms 76:7-11  You, You are to be feared; and who would stand in Your presence when You are displeased?  (8)  From heaven You shall cause judgment to be heard; the earth shall fear, and shall be still,  (9)  When Aluahim arises to right-ruling, to save all the meek of the earth. Salah.  (10)  For the wrath of mankind praises You, with the remainder of wrath You gird Yourself!  (11)  Make vows to YAHUAH your Aluahim, and pay them. Let all who are around Him bring presents to the One to be feared.

Psalms 140:12-13  I have known that YAHUAH maintains the cause of the afflicted, the right-ruling of the poor.  (13)  Only, let the righteous give thanks to Your Name, let the straight ones dwell in Your presence.

Yurumyahu (Jeremiah) 18:19-23  Attend to me, O YAHUAH, and listen to the voice of my adversaries!  (20)  Should good be repaid with evil? For they have dug a pit for my life. Remember that I stood before You to speak good for them, and to turn away Your wrath from them.  (21)  So give their children over to scarcity of food, and hand them over to the power of the sword. Let their wives become widows and bereaved of their children. Let their men be killed to death, their young men be stricken by the sword in battle.  (22)  Let a cry be heard from their houses, when You bring a raiding party suddenly upon them. For they have dug a pit to take me, and laid snares for my feet.  (23)  But You, O YAHUAH, You know all their counsel against me, to slay me. Do not pardon their crookedness, nor blot out their sin from Your presence, and let them be overthrown before You. Deal with them in the time of Your displeasure.

Acts 2:22-28  “Men of Yashur’al, hear these words: YAHUSHUA of Natsurat (Nazareth), a Man from Aluahim, having been pointed out to you by mighty works, and wonders, and signs which Aluahim did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves also know,  (23)  this One, given up by the set purpose and foreknowledge of Aluahim, you have impaled and put to death through the hands of lawless men –  (24)  “Him Aluahim raised up, having loosed the pangs of death, because it was impossible that He could be held in its grip.  (25)  “For Dude says concerning Him, ‘I saw YAHUAH before me continually, because He is at my right hand, in order that I should not be shaken.  (26)  ‘For this reason my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad, and now my flesh shall also rest in expectation,  (27)  because You shall not leave my being in hell, nor shall You give Your Lovingly-committed One to see corruption.  (28)  ‘You have made known to me the ways of life, You shall fill me with joy in Your presence.’

According To My Good News


Romans 2:14-16  For when nations, who do not have the Law, by nature do what is in the Law, although not having the Law, they are a law to themselves,  (15)  who show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and between themselves their thoughts accusing or even excusing,  (16)  in the day when Aluahim shall judge the secrets of men through YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, according to my Good News.

Romans 16:25-27  And to Him who is able to establish you according to my Good News and the preaching of YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, according to the revelation of the secret which was kept silent since times of old,  (26)  but now has been made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the everlasting Aluahim, for belief-obedience.  (27)  To Aluahim, wise alone, be the esteem, through YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach forever. Aman.

1 Corinthians 15:1-4  But brothers, I make known to you the Good News, which I brought as Good News to you, which you also did receive, and in which you stand,  (2)  through which also you are being saved, if you hold fast that word I brought as Good News to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.  (3)  For I delivered to you at the first that which I also received: that Mashyach died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  (4)  and that He was buried, and that He was raised the third day, according to the Scriptures.

Galatians 1:11-16  And I make known to you, brothers, that the Good News announced by me is not according to man.  (12)  For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but through a revelation of YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach.  (13)  For you have heard of my former behavior in Yahudaism, how intensely I persecuted the assembly of Aluahim, and ravaged it.  (14)  And I progressed in Yahudaism beyond many of my age in my race, being more exceedingly ardent for the traditions of my fathers.  (15)  But when it pleased Aluahim, who separated me from my mother’s womb and called me by His favour,  (16)  to reveal His Son in me, that I might bring Him, the Good News, to the nations, I did not immediately consult with flesh and blood.

1 Timothy 1:8-11  And we know that the Law is good if one uses it legitimately,  (9)  knowing this: that Law is not laid down for a righteous being, but for the lawless and unruly, for the wicked and for sinners, for the wrong-doers and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers,  (10)  for those who whore, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever else that is contrary to sound teaching,  (11)  according to the esteemed Good News of the adored Aluahim which was entrusted to me.

2 Timothy 1:7-11  For Aluahim has not given us a spirit of cowardice, but of power and of love and of self-control.  (8)  So do not be ashamed of the witness of our Master, nor of me His prisoner, but suffer hardship with me for the Good News according to the power of Aluahim,  (9)  who has saved us and called us with a set-apart calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and favour which was given to us in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach before times of old,  (10)  but now revealed by the appearing of our Saviour YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, who indeed abolished death and brought life and incorruptibility to light through the Good News,  (11)  for which I was appointed a proclaimer, and an emissary, and a teacher of the nations.

2 Timothy 2:8-10  Remember that YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, of the seed of Dude (David), was raised from the dead according to my Good News,  (9)  for which I suffer hardship, as a criminal, unto chains, but the Word of Aluahim is not chained.  (10)  So I endure through it all for the sake of the chosen, so that they too obtain deliverance which is in YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach with everlasting esteem.

Sifted As Wheat


Luke 22:31-34 And the Master said, “Shamaw’un (Simon), Shamaw’un! See, Shathan has asked for you to sift you as wheat. (32) “But I have prayed for you, that your belief should not fail. And when you have turned, strengthen your brothers.” (33) And he said to Him, “Master, I am prepared to go with You, both to prison and to death.” (34) And He said, “I say to you, Kaipha, the cock shall not crow at all today until you have denied three times that you know Me.”

Luke 22:61-62 And the Master turned and looked at Kaipha (Peter), and Kaipha remembered the word of the Master, how He had said to him, “Before a cock crows, you shall deny Me three times.” (62) And Kaipha went out and wept bitterly.

Turning Point for Kaipha:

Acts 2:1-4 And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks had come, they were all with one mind in one place. (2) And suddenly there came a sound from the heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. (3) And there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and settled on each one of them. (4) And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak.

Strengthening the brothers:

Acts 2:38-43 And Kaipha said to them, “Repent, and let each one of you be immersed in the Name of YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach for the forgiveness of sins. And you shall receive the gift of the Set-apart Spirit. (39) “For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are far off, as many as YAHUAH Aluahim shall call.” (40) And with many other words he earnestly witnessed and urged them, saying, “Be saved from this crooked generation.” (41) Then those, indeed, who gladly received his word, were immersed. And on that day about three thousand beings were added to them. (42) And they were continuing steadfastly in the teaching of the emissaries, and in the fellowship, and in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers. (43) And fear came upon every being, and many wonders and signs were being done through the emissaries.

1 Kaipha (Peter) 5:6-11 Humble yourselves, then, under the mighty hand of Aluahim, so that He exalts you in due time, (7) casting all your worry upon Him, for He is concerned about you. (8) Be sober, watch, because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (9) Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. (10) And the Aluahim of all favour, who called you to His everlasting esteem by YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, after you have suffered a while, Himself perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. (11) To Him be the esteem and the might forever and ever. Aman.

2 Kaipha (Peter) 3:17-18 You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch, lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless, (18) but grow in the favour and knowledge of our Master and Saviour YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach. To Him be the esteem both now and to a day that abides. Aman.

Run To The Finished Line

Editable vector illustration of a man winning a race

Psalms 119:32 I run the way of Your commands, for You enlarge my heart.

Proverbs 4:10-12 Hear, my son, and accept my words, and let the years of your life be many. (11) I have taught you in the way of wisdom, I have led you in straight paths. (12) When you walk your steps shall not be hindered, and if you run you shall not stumble. (18) And the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.

Proverbs 18:10 The Name of YAHUAH is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.

Yashaw’yahu 40:28-31 Did you not know? Have you not heard? The everlasting Aluahim, YAHUAH, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. (29) He gives power to the faint, and to those who have no might He increases strength. (30) Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men stumble and fall, (31) but those who wait on YAHUAH renew their strength, they raise up the wing like eagles, they run and are not weary, they walk and do not faint.

Yahuchanan 19:28-30 After this, YAHUSHUA, knowing that all had been finished, in order that the Scripture might be accomplished, said, “I thirst!” (29) A bowl of sour wine stood there, and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and held it to His mouth. (30) So when YAHUSHUA took the sour wine He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.

1 Corinthians 9:24-26 Do you not know that those who run in a race indeed all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way as to obtain it. (25) And everyone who competes controls himself in every way. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown, but we for an incorruptible crown. (26) Therefore I run accordingly, not with uncertainty.

Philippians 2:12-16 So that, my beloved, as you always obeyed – not only in my presence, but now much rather in my absence – work out your own deliverance with fear and trembling, (13) for it is Aluahim who is working in you both to desire and to work for His good pleasure. (14) Do all matters without grumblings and disputings, (15) in order that you be blameless and faultless, children of Aluahim without blemish in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, (16) holding on to the Word of life, for a boast to me in the day of Messiah, that I have not run in vain or laboured in vain.

2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am already being poured out, and the time of my departure has arrived. (7) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have guarded the belief. (8) For the rest, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Master, the righteous Judge, shall give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all those loving His appearing.

Hebrews 12:1-2 We too, then, having so great a cloud of witnesses all around us, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race set before us, (2) looking to the Prince and Perfecter of our belief, YAHUSHUA, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the stake, having despised the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of Aluahim.

Greater Witness


Yahuchanan 5:31-39
(31) If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true.
(32) There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses of Me is true.
(33) You have sent to Yahuchanan, and he bore witness to the truth.
(34) But I do not receive witness from man, but I say this in order that you might be saved.
(35) He was the burning and shining lamp, and for a while you wished to rejoice in his light.
(36) But I have a greater witness than that of Yahuchanan, for the works that the Father gave Me to accomplish, the works that I do, bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me.
(37) And the Father who sent Me, He bore witness of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form.
(38) And you do not have His Word staying in you, because you do not believe Him whom He sent.
(39) You search the Scriptures, because you think you possess everlasting life in them. And these are the ones that bear witness of Me.

1 Yahuchanan 5:6-12
(6) This is the One that came by water and blood: YAHUSHUA ha’Mashyach, not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the Truth.
(7) Because there are three who bear witness:
(8) the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And the three are in agreement.
(9) If we receive the witness of men, the witness of Aluahim is greater, because this is the witness of Aluahim which He has witnessed concerning His Son.
(10) The one who believes in the Son of Aluahim has the witness in himself, the one who does not believe Aluahim has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the witness that Aluahim has given concerning His Son.
(11) And this is the witness: that Aluahim has given us everlasting life, and this life is in His Son.
(12) He who possesses the Son possesses life, he who does not possess the Son of Aluahim does not possess life.
