Extensive Review Num. 15:37-41 Part 2 of 4 Truth About Where to Place Your Tassel – Is it the Corner or the Hem?

POINT #1 – KANAPH IS BETTER UNDERSTOOD AS ENDS, EXTREMITY, HEM

Reading many English Translations of Numbers 15:37-41, you find that many do not agree.  Out of 19 English translations, 10 believe the Hebrew word “Kanaph” to mean “Extremity, End, Skirt, Hem etc…) which all have the same meaning. However, 9 English translations believe the Hebrew word “Kanaph” to mean corner instead.  This definition changes meaning of Numbers 15:38-39 completely.  Tassels & Ribbon are to be placed on the “Kanaph” of the garment according to Numbers 15:38-39.

If Kanaph means corner, then you have only 4 Tassels with a thread instead of a ribbon intertwined at the corner of the garment, which would meet at the side cause the appearance of 2 tassels to each side.

If Kanaph means hem, extremity or end, then you have many tassels on the end of the garment instead of 4.  The appearance of tassels & ribbon would show no matter which angle the person turns.

Interestingly enough, tassels worn on the hem do reach the corners as well, where as tassels soley on the corner lacks throughout the garment. You could say that wearing tassels on the ends or hem throughout the garment will “cover all bases”, but the corner doesn’t allow such flexibility.

  You will soon find that kanaph does not mean corner in any of these instances.  Kanaph is not the proper word for corner in Hebrew.  There are many word to describe corner, better than Kanaph if Yahweh indeed wanted Israelites to place Tzitzits only on the corner.
 Kanaph means “ends or uttermost part”
ISAIAH 24:1

From the (kanaph) ends of the earth we hear songs, “Glory to the Righteous One,” But I say, “Woe to me! Woe to me! Alas for me! The treacherous deal treacherously, And the treacherous deal very treacherously.”

King James Bible
Isiaiah 24:1

From the (kanaph) uttermost part of the earth have we heard songs, even glory to the righteous. But I said, My leanness, my leanness, woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously.
4 CORNERS OF THE EARTH?
 1482151413589
 How can people live on the “4 Corners” of the Earth? If you take the Hebrew term “4 corners” literally than you must take the scriptures below to mean the picture above.

King James Bible

Ezekiel 7:2

“Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the end  is come upon the four corners (kanaph) of the land.

Isaiah 11:11
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
How can Yah’s people live on 4 corners of the earth?  No one actually believes this.  This is understood as a Hebrew Idom and there are many confusing idoms throughout the scriptures, if you don’t know what it actually mean, you will understand it incorrectly as is the case with all idoms throughout many cultures around the world.
When Yah said he would gather Israelite from the “4 Corners” of the earth. He meant from the “very ends” or “very extremities” of the earth. Not actual four corners.  We know for a fact that Yah has scattered his people throughout the earth and into “far away” places that would be considered “end of the earth” to you & I.

 the four corners of the garment

Same Hebrew Idom meaning “Very Ends of the Garment”, not 4 corners.  There are no instructions that a garment must have 4 corners.  Some take Deuteronomy to imply that garments with tassels need 4 corners, but it doesn’t say to add tassels to only garments with 4 corners.  If you read Deuteronomy 22:12, as literal “4 corners” then you will make “accommodations” to many idea’s such as forcing yourself to wear 4 corner garments only.  Deuteronomy 22:12 states to wear tassels on the ends of the garment.  Four corners of the garment is a Hebrew idom meaning “to the ends” of your garment.

English Standard Version
Deuteronomy 22:12 “You shall make yourself tassels on the four corners of the garment with which you cover yourself.

 

POINT # 3 – ANCIENT HEBREW ISRAELITES WORE TZITZITS THROUGHOUT THE HEM OF THE GARMENTS

ancient israelites hebrews_exile ancient 3Black_Obelisk-Israelites-bringing-tribute ancient Hebrew Israelies playing music

When you see pictures of ancient Israelites craved & preserved in stone, you don’t see images of “Jew-ish” looking people wearing 4 corner tassels. You see men with braids or curly hair, wearing fringes and a border above it.  This is my final confirmation that “kanaph” indeed means hem, extremity or skirt etc… and that Israelites are commanded to wear tzitzits throughout the border or “kanaph” of their garments with a border of takaleth. We who are Israelites do not need final Jew-wish or European scholars telling us what to think. Yahweh reveals HIS TRUTH to his people. You got it right here in stone, but some still need this “final confirmation” from those who have been enemies in the times past and those who pretend to be someone they’re not in order to deceive the very people they intend deceive.

 

Now I have come to another very very important topic. What color is the border or ribbon written in Numbers 15:38-39?  The Hebrew word is “Tekaleth”, does tekayleth mean blue as translated in many bibles & also believed by the Jew-wish people. or does the word “Tekayleth” mean violet as translated by the Hebrew definition and also many other English translations?
