Hebrew Word of the Day: Finished

These were Yahowshuas last words in his life prior to death.

Remember the following:

John 4

Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman

7When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” 8(His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.)

9The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.)

10Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”

13Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again,

14but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

19“Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet.

20Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

25The woman said, “I know that Messiah” (called Christ) “is coming. When he comes, he will explain everything to us.”

26Then Jesus declared, “I who speak to you am he.”

The Disciples Rejoin Jesus

31Meanwhile his disciples urged him, “Rabbi, eat something.”

32But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”

34“My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. 35Do you not say, ‘Four months more and then the harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.36Even now the reaper draws his wages, even now he harvests the crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together. 37Thus the saying ‘One sows and another reaps’ is true. 38I sent you to reap what you have not worked for. Others have done the hard work, and you have reaped the benefits of their labour.”

NL – refers to when a shepherd leads the flock towards pasture using his staff as a guide.

towards pasture

The next two words have the following root underlying their meaning

NL – Complete; It is to lead the flock at the end of a journey to pasture using the shepherds staff as a guide. Has an idea of the completion of a task, perfection; refers to when a shepherd leads the flock towards pasture using his staff as a guide.

LH – Great yoke i.e. weary; A young oxen unaccustomed to the weight and operation of the yoke becomes tired. A work that comes to nothing. It is to be weary from a non-productive effort i.e. to be  without results thus troubled by this. An ornamentation placed on the neck as a yoke

Nalah [Nun, Lamed, Hei]

To be completed, perfect

The letter and word Lamed refers to teaching learning, teacher all of which was Yahowshuas mission, to teach mankind, to aid in our understanding of Yahovah he was the ultimate teacher in life and our existence. He led us like a shepherd leads his sheep yet he was also a lamb, a son of man who would be slaughtered as a sacrifice.



NCh -To continue outside i.e. the shepherd would guide his flock to a place with water to drink and green grass for pasturing. Once they arrive they are free to rest after the long journey. So they are guided during their journey to  place of rest and may sigh prior to resting. The acquisition of a possession from past generations. A choice piece of land desired in an inheritance because of its fertility. NB. nachal means a valley or stream;

Nachalah, and the following two words are related by the following root

ChL – A hole is drilled with a tool called a bow drill. The string of the bow is wrappedaround the drill. By moving the bow back and forth, and firmly passing down, the drill spins around drilling the hole. The drilling takes patience as the process takes time. Rust – bores trough metal. Sick – a spinning of the insides. Joy – spinning around. Army – bores through the enemy by strongly pressing in.


To be sick; to beseech

A spinning or piercing pain [See ChL root below]; to request intervention [aid] from a sickness or other trouble


To pierce; common

The spot to be drilled is scored to make an indentation  to accept the drill which will pierce through it; means to make something common thus unholy [remember holy – qadash means set apart for a specific function, hence common is not set apart for a specific function. NB. chayal means strength, might, efficiency, wealth, army, and it refers the object that is bored through by the enemy i.e. a wall whether literal or figurative. It has a further meaning of power in that it signifies the strength and wealth of a person or of an army that bores.

Chanah [Chet, Nun, Hei]


ChN – Tent wall continues i.e. a camp. A nomads camp consisted of many family tents, which make up the clan camp. The camp can have a many as fifty tents or more in it. The tents are placed in a circular configuration forming one continuous wall surrounding the camp. Within the wall is the family clan, a place of freedom, compassion and beauty. An encampment of tents. The tent is supported by the poles. The beauty of the camp. To give/show beauty, grace mercy or favour to another.

This is to erect temporary shelters together i.e. tent encampment-dwelling; to stop for the night and pitch the tents; inhabitants of the camp. The first step to setting up the tent is to arrange the poles. The tent poles were sharpened at one end[and could be used as a weapon]and were driven into the ground. It is to lay siege against something i.e. an armed force that surrounds a fortified [can defend themselves] place and isolates it while continuing to attack. Channah means “grace” [the mother of Samuel, one of the wives of Elkanah].



NR – Seed beginning i.e. plough; Rains in the mountainous areas cause a flooding of the rivers. The rivers swell  causing the water to flood the land next to the river. This is the only water that the land will see and is necessary for crop production. After the flood season, the land is ploughed by the use of a plough attached to the yoke of the oxen. The surface of the soil is dry but, when the soil is turned up it glistens in the sun from the water remaining in the soil. This water is necessary for the seed to begin germination.

A natural stream of water of considerable volume. The life giving water that washes over the soil



The dwelling place either of man [his home], of the Lord [mountain] or of animals [pasture, stable].


Yahowshua has an inheritance from Yahovah his father of a land which is valuable due to its fertility hence whatever he sows he will reap from it. However water is required to ensure the land and its produce thrive.

In the Kingdom he said he will prepare a place for us. This will be in the  dwelling place i.e. pasture where we will have eternal rest. Yahowshua witnessed the sickness of his flock. He sees the Earth as the ‘camp’ and the ‘Prince of this world’ surrounds mankind and tries to bore through Yahovahs creation and attack us, however we can defend ourselves with the ‘weapon’ of the strong pole. Remember this refers to the father that set up the tent i.e. God [Psalm 18:3 My saving horn: my strong saviour – a horn is the weapon of a bull and the symbol of fertility]. When Gods word became flesh, this provided fresh living water for the Earth/earth and  He will secure our freedom from afflictions through him being pierced and secured to the cross. After his resurrection he spoke to a few on the Mountain [the Lords dwelling place] and then returned to the Lord promising us everlasting life. He told us that whatever we ask of him he will do [as long as its in his character i.e. name]. Please read the posts on redemption, sanctuary, grace and mercy.

Isaiah 53

1 Who has believed our message and to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot,and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him,nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

3 He was despised and rejected by men,a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4 Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted.

5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.

6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7 He was oppressed and afflicted,yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.

8 By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken.

9 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth.

10 Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.

11 After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.

12 Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

He came to complete the Lords work which was most likely not fulfilled due to the killings of prophets, the increasing numbers of false prophets getting heard and the numerous lies spread by the enemy. God had to complete it himself through Christ and defeat the adversary. He redeemed us and it was finished, we were reunited.
