When you shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

When you shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.

The above is from Mark 13:29, and the word rendered “see” is eido, here describing the merely mechanical and passive act occurring with or without understanding. In the passage, the LORD goes on to tell us to “watch,” from the Greek word gregoreuo, meaning, “to keep awake, i.e. watch (literally or figuratively):–be vigilant, wake, (be) watch(-ful).”

A few verses before the title, the LORD uses the word hopou, which was discussed in the previous post, meaning “with wide-open eyes, as at something remarkable.” It’s there also rendered “see,” and speaks of when what is occurring is realized, which is “And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.”

As we know, what follows this last quote is the LORD telling of when the sun and moon are darkened, the stars of heaven are fallen, and heaven is shaken. He is speaking of understanding (light) not being found in the church (sun) or moon (civil governments), and God’s people in a like condition fallen from a firm grasp on heaven (clarity of sight). It’s into this condition of sleep, the LORD comes, like a light in the cloud, where we know the elements of understanding are said to have gone when leaving the earth.

This coming of the LORD is what we see spoken of in Revelation 22, saying:

Revelation 22
5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the LORD God gives them light [understanding]: and they shall reign forever and ever.
6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the LORD God of the holy prophets sent his angel to show unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keeps the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Mark 13
14 But when you shall see [eido] the abomination of desolation [the ideas as idols put in God’s place, which have caused the desolation of His people, church and state], spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that reads understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house [the church corrupted by the creations of men, ideas as idols put in God’s place]:
16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment [spotted by the flesh, the creations of men].
17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days [teachers who are corrupting the minds of all they teach]!
18 And pray you that your flight be not in the winter [when all the world has become cold and fires burn everywhere].
19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation [never this type of oppression and ignorance of truth, covering the entire world and there is no place where it isn’t hunting souls] of which God created unto this time, neither shall be.
20 And except that the LORD had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom he has chosen, he has shortened the days.
21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ [here is the anointed teacher]; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise [have risen in every place], and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
23 But take you heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.
24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
26 And then shall they see [hopou – realize there is only one shepherd anointed by God and with His light – understanding] the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven. [Ezekiel 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all. 23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwelling-places, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God. 24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.]
28 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: [Revelation 22:1 And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see [hopou] his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.]
29 So you in like manner, when you shall see [eido] these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors.
30 Truly I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.
31 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away.
32 But of that day and that hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33 Take you heed, watch and pray: for you know [eido – see] not when the time is.
34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35 Watch [gregoreuo] you therefore: for you know not when the master of the house comes, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping [katheudo].
37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch [gregoreuo].

The word katheudo, is from the words kata, meaning down, and heudo, meaning sleep. It’s said to mean “to lie down to rest, i.e. (by implication) to fall asleep (literally or figuratively).” It’s describing Abram’s (Abraham’s) “deep sleep,” which we know is written of in Genesis 15:12, saying, “And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, a horror of great darkness fell upon him.” As we know, this is when the LORD God made His Covenant with Abram, of which the time between it and its fulfillment, in verses 17, the deep sleep is said to be in the furnace of the earth. Genesis 15:17 And it came to pass, that, when the sun went down, and it was dark, behold a smoking furnace, and a burning lamp that passed between those pieces.

As we’ve often discussed and demonstrated, this is the time Daniel says is when Michael (who is like God) stands, the formula there in Daniel 12 giving us the exact time ending now – which only the Father knows (eido – sees). Above, we’re told of the Father’s work in the world during this time between as a burning lamp, unseen in the smoke of the furnace. We know this smoke as what comes from the bottomless pit, the endless fall of God’s people away from Him into ignorance of Him, described in Revelation 9 as what darkens the sky (into where the LORD comes with clarity).

The chapter goes on to tell of locust coming from the smoke, which had power as scorpions. We know this is speaking the total desolation brought by them and the scorpion tails as what follows, rotting from the inside (the mind) those they strike.

In the following chapter, we’re told of the LORD coming in the cloud, giving understanding to those who receive Him, to whom He offers the now opened book. This is the same book Daniel is told, in Daniel 12, will be closed until the time of the end.

Daniel 12
1 And at that time shall Michael [who is Like God] stand up, the great prince which stand for the children of your people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time your people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3 And they that be wise shall shine [their understanding] as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
4 But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro [to bring the many separated part together], and knowledge shall be increased.
5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. [This is the river Chebar, meaning it flows through time. It is God’s word flowing through eternity, from one time {bank of the river} to the other.]
6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters [the LORD above the waters] of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swore by him that lives for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [the word given in a time, sent through a times, to the other bank where it is rightly divided, meaning properly interpreted]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my LORD, what shall be the end of these things?
9 And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

Revelation 10
1 And I saw [eido] another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow [the light, understanding, rightly divided, as the sign in the cloud – See Genesis 9:13 thru 16] was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a little book open [opening the word of God that has been sealed until now]: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders [the sound of understanding, of the seven colors of the bow] uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not [because they’re sealed until this time, as Daniel was told in Daniel 12:9 above].
5 And the angel which I saw [eido] stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And swore by him that live for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer [and the word of God is unsealed]:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he has declared to his servants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which stands upon the sea and upon the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.

Mark 14
27 And Jesus said unto them, All you shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered.
28 But after that I am risen, I will go before you into Galilee.
29 But Peter said unto him, Although all shall be offended, yet will not I.
30 And Jesus said unto him, Truly I say unto you, That this day, even in this night, before the cock crow twice, you shall deny me thrice.
31 But he spoke the more vehemently, If I should die with you, I will not deny you in any wise. Likewise also said they all.
32 And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he said to his disciples, Sit you here, while I shall pray.
33 And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy;
34 And said unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry you here, and watch [gregoreuo].
35 And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.
36 And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto you; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what you will.
37 And he came, and found them sleeping [katheudo – in the deep sleep], and said unto Peter, Simon, sleep [katheudo] you? could not you watch [gregoreuo] one hour?
38 Watch [gregoreuo] you and pray, lest you enter into temptation [doubting and then denying the presence of God]. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
39 And again he went away, and prayed, and spoke the same words.
40 And when he returned, he found them asleep [gregoreuo] again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist [eido – know or see] they what to answer him.
41 And he comes the third time, and said unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.
42 Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.
43 And immediately, while he yet spake, comes Judas, one of the twelve, and with him a great multitude with swords and staves, from the chief priests and the scribes and the elders.
44 And he that betrayed him had given them a token, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he; take him, and lead him away safely.
45 And as soon as he was come, he goeth straightway to him, and saith, Master, master; and kissed him.
46 And they laid their hands on him, and took him.
47 And one of them that stood by drew a sword, and smote a servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear.
48 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Are you come out, as against a thief, with swords and with staves to take me?
49 I was daily with you in the temple teaching, and you took me not: but the scriptures must be fulfilled.
50 And they all forsook him, and fled.
51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him:
52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
53 And they led Jesus away to the high priest: and with him were assembled all the chief priests and the elders and the scribes.
54 And Peter followed him afar off, even into the palace of the high priest: and he sat with the servants, and warmed himself at the fire.
55 And the chief priests and all the council sought for witness against Jesus to put him to death; and found none.
56 For many bare false witness against him, but their witness agreed not together.
57 And there arose certain, and bare false witness against him, saying,
58 We heard him say, I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and within three days I will build another made without hands.
59 But neither so did their witness agree together.
60 And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answer you nothing? what is it which these witness against you?
61 But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
62 And Jesus said, I am: and you shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven.
63 Then the high priest rent his clothes, and said, What need we any further witnesses?
64 You have heard the blasphemy: what think you? And they all condemned him to be guilty of death.
65 And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.
66 And as Peter was beneath in the palace, there came one of the maids of the high priest:
67 And when she saw [eido – knew] Peter warming himself, she looked upon him, and said, And you also were with Jesus of Nazareth.
68 But he denied, saying, I know [eido – see Him] not, neither understand I what you say. And he went out into the porch; and the cock crew.
69 And a maid saw [eido – knew] him again, and began to say to them that stood by, This is one of them.
70 And he denied it again. And a little after, they that stood by said again to Peter, Surely you are one of them: for you are a Galilaean [have been with Him in the upper room as part of His inner circle], and your speech agrees thereto.
71 But he began to curse and to swear, saying, I know [eido – see] not this man of whom you speak.
72 And the second time the cock crew. And Peter called to mind the word that Jesus said unto him, Before the cock crow twice, you shall deny me thrice. And when he thought thereon, he wept.

1 Thessalonians 4
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that you sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
15 For this we say unto you by the word of the LORD, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the LORD shall not prevent them which are asleep.
16 For the LORD himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up [harpazo – pulling us from the fires] together with them in the clouds, to meet the LORD in the air: and so shall we ever be with the LORD.
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

1 Thessalonians 5
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know [eido – see] perfectly that the day of the LORD so comes as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 But you, brethren, are not in darkness [ignorance], that that day should overtake you as a thief.
5 You are all the children of light [understanding], and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep [katheudo – remain in the deep sleep], as do others; but let us watch [gregoreuo] and be sober.
7 For they that sleep [katheudo] sleep [katheudo] in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our LORD Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake [gregoreuo] or sleep [katheudo], we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify [educate] one another, even as also you do.
12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know [eido – see] them which labor among you, and are over you in the LORD, and admonish you;
13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
15 See that none render evil for evil [mislead not those who are already misled] unto any man; but ever follow that which is good [the right leading of the good shepherd], both among yourselves, and to all men.
16 Rejoice evermore.
17 Pray without ceasing.
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
19 Quench not the Spirit.
20 Despise not prophesying [despise not those God sends with this word].
21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good [leading that comes by this word of God].
22 Abstain from all appearance of evil [misleading words].
23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ.
24 Faithful is he that calls you, who also will do it.

2 Thessalonians 1
6 Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the LORD Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know [eido – see] not God, and that obey not the gospel of our LORD Jesus Christ:
9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the LORD, and from the glory of his power;
10 When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
11 Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power:
12 That the name of our LORD Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the LORD Jesus Christ.

2 Thessalonians 2
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our LORD Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That you be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means [because there has come a great falling away and many are deceived]: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasy] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [men who, as did Reuben, went up into his father’s bed and defiled it, taking HIS PLACE];
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sits in the temple of God, [who are sitting in God’s place] showing himself that he is God.
5 Remember you not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now you know [eido – see those who don’t see, know, God] what withholds [katecho – hold down God’s people and are keeping them from rising from their sleep to meet Him in the clear air] that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity does already work [there have always, during the time of the deep sleep, been those who’ve led God’s people into standing away {apostasis} from Him where they don’t see or know Him]: only he who now lets [katecho – holds them down in this way] will let [will hold them down in the deep sleep], until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the LORD shall consume with the spirit of his mouth [this word from the mouth of God], and shall destroy with the brightness [the light of understanding] of his coming:
9 [Revealing] Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders [as is the way of all the misleaders of this world, in church and state: known, proven, liars telling known lies, false accusers falsely accusing the innocent they hate],
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send [has sent] them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
13 But we are bound to give thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of the LORD, because God has from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
14 Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our LORD Jesus Christ.
15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.
16 Now our LORD Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace,
17 Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work.

2 Thessalonians 3
1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the LORD may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you [received as the word of God’s mouth, as it is]:
2 And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men [the same wicked men described in the previous chapter]: for all men have not faith.
3 But the LORD is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil [the misleading lies of the wicked].
4 And we have confidence in the LORD touching you, that you both do and will do the things which we command you.
5 And the LORD direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
6 Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our LORD Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother that walks disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.
7 For yourselves know [eido – see] how you ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves disorderly among you;
8 Neither did we eat any man’s bread for naught; but wrought with labor and travail night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
9 Not because we have not power, but to make ourselves an ensample unto you to follow us.
10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.
11 For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies [trying to control everyone else’s life].

The word “disorderly” is the Greek word ataktos, the same word rendered “unruly” in 1 Thessalonians 5:14 above. It’s the reversing of (a derivative of) the eight times used word tasso, meaning to arrange in an orderly manner.

It is referring us to the first time tasso is used, Mathew 28:16, where it’s rendered “appointed” as we’re told of the eleven disciples meeting Him in the mountain He appointed. These are the mountains (oros) He told them to flee to when they saw the abomination that causes desolation put in His place.

Matthew 28
16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee [the inner circle], into a mountain where Jesus had appointed [tasso] them.
17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.
18 And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name [the identity] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

In Matthew 28:7 & 10, the angle and then the LORD, using the word hopou, tell His people they will “see” Him in Galilee, meaning it’s where they’ll realize it’s Him.

Matthew 28
7 And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goes before you into Galilee; there shall you see [hopou] him: lo, I have told you.
8 And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word.
9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him.
10 Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see [hopou] me.

The Hebrew name Galilee is from the four times used word galiyl, meaning “a valve of a folding door (as turning); also a ring (as round).” It’s used twice in 1 Kings 6:34 to describe the “folding” of the doors “for entering the oracle,” and in telling of the hand of the beloved, in Song of Solomon 5:14.

In 1 Kings 6, we’re several times told that on these doors are carvings of palm trees and open flowers, from the words timmor and tsiyts, the latter said to mean “glistening, i.e. a burnished plate; also a flower (as bright-colored); a wing (as gleaming in the air).” These are “covered,” from the word tsaphah, meaning overlaid to hide what is beneath. These aspect are intentionally implied meanings, telling of the open door the LORD’s set before those who have met Him in this inner circle, and the “ring” on His hand is where His power is hidden: the valve from where His oracles comes as rays of light.

1 Kings 6
31 And for the entering of the oracle he made doors of olive tree: the lintel and side posts were a fifth part of the wall.
32 The two doors also were of olive tree; and he carved upon them carvings of cherubims and palm trees [timmor] and open flowers [tsiyts], and overlaid [tsaphah] them with gold, and spread gold upon the cherubims, and upon the palm trees [timmor – but you can call me Timothy or tim].
33 So also made he for the door of the temple posts of olive tree, a fourth part of the wall.
34 And the two doors were of fir tree: the two leaves of the one door were folding [galiyl], and the two leaves of the other door were folding [galiyl – Galilee, where the doors to the oracle is open, as an open flower, blossoming].
35 And he carved thereon cherubims and palm trees [timmor] and open flowers [tsiyts]: and covered [tsaphah] them with gold fitted upon the carved work.

Song of Solomon 5
14 His hands are as gold rings [galiyl] set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.

The word “doubted,” in Matthew 28:17, is the word distazo, meaning “to duplicate, i.e. (mentally) to waver (in opinion).” The only other time it appears is in Matthew 14:31, there telling of Peter’s “doubting.”

Matthew 14
24 But the ship was now in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw [eido – saw but didn’t know it was] him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spoke unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, LORD, if it be you, bid me come unto you on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, LORD, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O you of little faith, wherefore did you doubt [distazo]?
32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth you are the Son of God.

Psalms 17
1 Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goes not out of feigned [deceitful] lips.
2 Let my sentence come forth from your presence [paniym]; let your eyes behold the things that are equal.
3 You have proved mine heart; you have visited me in the night; you have tried me, and shall find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
4 Concerning the works of men, by the word of your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.
5 Hold up my goings in your paths, that my footsteps slip not.
6 I have called upon you, for you will hear me, O God: incline your ear unto me, and hear my speech.
7 Show your marvelous lovingkindness, O you that saves by your right hand them which put their trust in you from those that rise up against them.
8 Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your wings,
9 From [paniym – by your presence save me from] the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about.
10 They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.
11 They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth;
12 Like as a lion that is greedy of his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places.
13 Arise, O LORD, disappoint [paniym, show your presence before] him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is your sword:
14 From men which are your hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly you filled with your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.
15 As for me, I will behold your face [paniym – your presence] in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake [from the deep sleep], with your likeness [the one who is made in the likeness of God, as Michael who stands to raises the stars from the dust of the earth, to again shine].
