An Example Which Shows the Pentateuch Was Written Mystically

Post by Secret Alias » Thu Nov 29, 2018 10:44 am

Genesis 25:27
אִ֣ישׁ תָּ֔ם יֹשֵׁ֖ב אֹהָלִֽים
(Jacob was a) perfect man dwelling in tents

But with the transposition of the second and third letters of the last word in the sentence
God dwells = יֹשֵׁ֖ב אֱלֹהִ֑ים
“Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.”
― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote
