Greetings in the name of His & Her Imperial Majesties Qedamawi Haile Sellassie I & Itege Menen Asfaw,

Greetings, yet again to one and all, from “Lidj Yefdi” (pronounced Lij; Yêf-dee).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to seek insight) into the study of the Scriptures.  So, with this Hebrew Shabbat(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, nonetheless studied the Torah portion of W(V)a’yeira – וַיֵּרָא, on the 17th – יז, & the 18th – יח, of the month of Cḥeshw(v)an – חֶשְׁוָן, [this Hebraic month is also known as; Mar’Cḥeshw(v)an – מַרְחֶשְׁוָן]‎in the year of 5779. (the Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the MoonFrom an Ethiopic-Christian perspective and calculation, where the current year is 2011/7511; these readings from the Scriptures would align to what is known, also as; Tӓgӓlӓtӓlӓt – ተገለጠለት, on the 16th – ፲፮, & the 17th – ፲፯,  of the (ወርኀ)month of T’Qĭmt – ጥቅምት.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar(with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet-ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).

Readings:

Genesis 18:1- 22:24

II Kings 4: 1-37

Luke 1: 26-38 ; Chpt. 24: 36-53

II Peter 2: 4-11

Luke 24: 36-53

wayeira - weasterayo

From the last Sabbath portion, Lech’-Lech’a & we come to Wayeira-וַיֵּרָא.  In this study of the Scriptures, Abraham is visited in the plain of Mamre,

[Gen. 18]

Abraham is asked of his wife, Sarah‘s whereabouts, because a special message is to be delivered.  She is to bare Abraham a son, though the both of them are aged.

[Gen. 18: 9-19]

lech lecha - parsha [sarai-sarah]2

In this kifil/parsha(portion), Abraham found himself playing the role of an “intercessor” before the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah, for the sake of his nephew, Lot, & his family.

[Gen. 18: 20-33]

Destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah _ painting by John Martin

After the Sodom & Gomorrah‘s obliteration, Lot was left with only his two daughters.  They feared that wouldn’t be married, so they, the two daughters devised a plan to procure children from their father’s lineage.

[Gen. 19]

wayeira -parsha [Destruction_of_Sodom_&_Gomorrah]

Meanwhile, Abraham passes off his wife, Sarah, for his sister; in the hopes that it would spare his life, to a king named Abimelech.  God, speaks to Abimelech in a vision of sleep, & informs him that Abraham, and Sarah are not brother and sister, but husband and wife.  Also, because of their presence in Abimelech‘s kingdom, all of the wombs were closed up.  Abimelech, of course, confronts Abraham for this, but they both are reconciled with each other and even, make a covenant between them in Beersheba.

[Gen. 20]

Abraham & Sarah go to see Abimelech

Sarah, then gave birth to a son of Abraham, and named him IsaacHagar, who was Sarah‘s handmaiden, but had become a mother of Abraham‘s firstborn son; mocked her, in that she gave birth in her old age.

[Gen. 21: 1-10]

wayeira- parsha (Abraham sending Hagar and Ishmael away)

Later, Sarah remembered the callous feelings between she, & Hagar, whom had bore a son,(Ishmael) to AbrahamSarah, feeling as if she placed a burden on Abraham that he shouldn’t bare, told him to cast off the woman & her child.  Abraham, grievous because of what it seemed like he may have to do, but received assurance of God, that the woman & her child would be preserved.

[Gen. 21: 11-21]

Hagar & Isma'il (ibn Ibrahim)

Abraham & Abimelech, made a covenant in the place near, where Hagar & Ishmael, were spared by God, from the desert, & an altar, which Abraham called “Jehovah Jireh” (from translation).

Gen. 22:14

YHWH‘s appearance to Abraham in Be’ersheba

ያህዌ ይርኤ

יְהוָה יֵרָאֶֽה

Jehovah Jireh, in Beersheba _ Abraham & Abimelech make a covenant.

God, did also test, Abraham; to the point where Abraham’s love for his son & God, was the ultimate test.

[Gen. 22]

Abraham - YisehaQ(Isaac) - the Angel of the LORD [Har YHWH Yireh - Mount of Gods Vision]

I welcome you all to a new regeneration of cycle Torah readings!  This is another one of the many interpretations of the Scriptures from the light of Ras Tafari by, I, Lidj Yefdi (or Yefdeyah).

I assure you that if you are patient with me, come with a willing mind and heart(ready to learn), you will receive more than what you might have asked for, in seeking the perspective of a Ras Tafarian’s I-sight (eyesight) into the study of the Scriptures.

So,with this Hebrew Shabbot(or Sabbath day) if those who actually open up their Bibles to read in a Jewish/Hebrew cycle of readings, & thoroughly discern, have come to the opening of  the Torah portions with W(V)aYetz’e – וַיֵּצֵא.  On the Jewish or Hebraic Calendar in this year 5777, this Sabbath day would probably fall on the 10th – י, & on the 11th – יא, of the month of Kislew(v) – כִּסְלֵו, for this week, in this mode of study;  for those out in the diaspora or outside of Jerusalem/Israel.  (The Hebrew Calendar corresponds to a Lunar cycle of the Moon) &, from an Ethiopic-Christian perspective, in what may be known as the year 2009/2029/7509, on the Ethiopic calendar.  This calculation, with its readings from the Scriptures, would align to the 30th – ፴, of the (ወርኀ)month of Cḥídâr – ኅዳር [ሕዳር/ህዳር] & on the 1st – ፩, of the month of Tah’sas – ታኅሣሥ.  In the Scriptures, this portion of study would also be known as Wä’Tito – ወጥቶ.  The Ethiopic calendar is solar (with its correspondence to the Sun) aligns to this Sabbath (or Senbet – ሰንበት) in the Ethiopian language of Amharic, which is currently one of the languages of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church (the other language being Ge’ez-(ግእዝ).
