In the research I have done for the Dead Sea Scrolls, two things stand out for me. >The first is a wonderful lost Scripture verse that resonates in my mind. It is psalm 145 verse Nun. Missing from modern Bibles, it reads: “ יהוה is Faithful in His words and Gracious in all His deeds”. Blessed be יהוה and Blessed be His Name forever and ever”
This should be the 14th verse of the 145th chapter by modern numbering. >The second which stands out is that God’s Name could only be written by certain individuals within the scrolls and it was written in Paleo Hebrew – an older alphabet than in regular use during Jesus life and older than the alphabet in use when the scribes recorded these Dead Sea Scrolls. The meticulous work of these Scribes and attention to detail is most appreciated. Our relationship with the Creator is reflected in the greatest commandment which Jesus acknowledged. Luke 10:27. During a traveling exhibit of the Dead Sea Scrolls, we were drawn to a phrase on a ring in the gift shop from another Book – Song of Solomon. “Ani L’Dodi V’Dodi Li”. Or I am to my beloved and my beloved is to me. This inscription can be found on the wedding rings of some and reflects the relationship we can have with a spouse and also on a higher level that we can have with our God. Our love and appreciation is for the One who is most deserving for He is “Faithful in His words and Gracious in all His deeds”. “Blessed be יהוה and Blessed be His Name forever and ever. “
