Hebrew Word Study – Heart – Part II

(20 Ratings)

The Human HEART  by the Numbers



Beyt    Lamed

2       30


We learned in the first part of this article that the Hebrew word Heart is pictured as the Voice of Authority inside the Tent. 

We discover that the Scriptures use a picture of a tent as a metaphor to describe the Human Body. 

We learned that the Picture meaning of the Hebrew word Lamed Beyt, the word we translate into English as Heart, is The Voice of Authority inside the Human Body.

We also know from Scripture that man’s Heart is not only corrupt it is mortally wounded and cannot be mended or healed by any effort of mankind.

So here is the big question:

If man’s Heart is mortally ill, and we know it is, how is it healed from its deadly wound?

The answer is found in the numeric meaning of the Hebrew word we translate into English as Heart.

30 Lamed

Blood of Christ; Dedication (3×10)

Magnified Perfection of the Divine Order

Marking the Right Moment – Blood Sacrifice

We learned that the first letter of the Hebrew word for Heart is Lamed and is pictured as a staff and signifies the VOICE of AUTHORITY.  Lamed is also a number, the number 30. 

What does the number 30 mean?

The number 30 is used throughout the Scriptures as the number connected with the price of redemption.  Most Christians can recall that the 30 pieces of silver paid to Judas for delivering Yeshua into the hands of the High Priest.

There is another way of looking at this transaction between Judas and the Sanhedrin. 

From heaven’s prophetic perspective, this was 30 pieces of silver paid for the spotless lamb of God who would be sacrificed on Passover for the sins of all those that entered into this holy revelation by faith and trusted in the Messiah and what He accomplished with His blood sacrifice on the Cross of Calvary.

Both the number 30 and silver are connected with Redemption.  The number 30 is also connected to the number 300 which is simply the same disclosure with the element of a divine sequence of events or Ordinal perfection added for our understanding. 

Thirty and Three Hundred, which is basically 30 on steroids, both forecast the blood atonement.   

So we have the picture of Lamed as the Voice of Authority and the Number of Lamed as 30 together forecasting that the One who is the ultimate Voice of Authority, the one pictured with the shepherd’s staff is going to sacrifice Himself for the life of His sheep.

Now let’s link the number meaning of Lamed up with the number meaning of Beyt to see what else we can learn about the HEART.  

Remember that the Hebrew word for Heart is Lamed Beyt,   

 2  Beyt

Difference – Good or Evil – Division – Living Word 

Second – To Come Alongside for Help

To Come Alongside to Hinder

Second Person of the Godhead 

God the Son

Beyt is the letter pictured as a tent or tabernacle and is used in the New Testament in a way that should arrest our attention. 

The word Tent is linked in a mysterious way to our salvation.   

Beyt as the number 2 lets us know that we are dealing with the second person of the Godhead. Obviously, it is the Messiah, the Son of God. 

It also tells us that the Son has a dwelling place. 

Where is that dwelling place? 

It is in heaven.

Do you see the connection between the Atoning work of God, the Son, on our behalf and His dwelling place?  A place He has promised to prepare for us who have trusted in His finished work on the cross.

In the ninth chapter of Hebrews, the Apostle Paul describes the earthly tabernacle, or “tent of meeting”.  It is what happens in the tent that Paul wants us to notice. 

The tent is the place the priests enter into to offer sacrifices for the sins of the Children of Israel.   

In Hebrews 9:11 Paul declares that the Messiah is a superior, a better “high priest”. 

Why is He superior? 

The answer is found in the book of Hebrews Chapter 9:11-14 (ESV).

 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.  For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

What do you suppose is the MORE PERFECT TABERNACLE or TENT that the Apostle Paul is referring to?

The answer is that Paul is referring to Messiah.  He is referring to the body of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. The body that would be sacrificed only ONE time. Once for ALL

The sacrifice of the blood of animals was insufficient and was only a shadow of the ONCE for ALL sacrifice made by the Messiah in order to satisfy the wrath of God. 

The animal sacrifices were only meant as a stop-gap forecast of the coming sacrifice of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach. 

And where did this happen? 

It happened on the Cross of Calvary. 

And how long is this sacrifice effective? 

The answer is:

Once for All and for all Eternity.

So here is the big question:

If man’s Heart is mortally ill, and we know it is, how is it healed from its deadly wound?

The answer is found in the numeric meaning of the Hebrew word we translate into English as Heart.

Heart by the Numbers

2  30


The two numbers Lamed or 30 and Beyt or 2 forecast the following:

Blood Sacrifice by the Son of God so that we might enter the Family of God and with Him in the Place He has prepared for us!

The Lord graciously provides us with two proofs that everything He has accomplished for us and promised to us on the basis of the work on the cross will happen just like He said it would. 

The first proof is the certain testimony of God’s Word, the most dependable and trustworthy thing on this earth.

The second is that He promises to abide with us.

He Promises to take up residence in our HEARTS!

How do you know He has come into your heart? 

First, you believe His promise knowing that no matter how you feel, no matter your ups and downs, no matter how many times you experience doubts and fears, God never changes!  You may be unfaithful but He is faithful to keep His promises to complete the work that He has authored.

Are you starting to connect the dots?  The same God that says He will write His statutes on our hearts, declares that He will come and reside in our hearts. 

The guarantee of your salvation is not in anything you have done or can ever do, it is all based on God the Holy Spirit taking up residence in your heart. 

2 Corinthians 1: 21-22

And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

Galations 4:6

And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son  into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!”

It is all about Yeshua Ha-Mashiach taking up residence in your heart.

Ephesians 3:17

So that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

It is all about God the Father coming to live in your heart. 

John 14:23

 ​Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.

God who created all things is going to create a new heart in those that trust in Him.  It is a glorified heart that is fit for heaven and it will be instantly created the moment we are resurrected from the dead or go to meet Him in the air.  Salvation and Eternal Destiny in God’s hands and He promises to never let us go. 

But we can also see practical proofs in our life that God is in us. Our attitudes and behavior indicate that someone else is living inside of us, living in our heart.   We begin to notice that He is making changes, sanctifying us as He prepares us for our heavenly home. 

In the beginning of this article, we learned that God looked on the wicked heart of man and was grieved.  When God takes up residence in our hearts, what do you suppose happens? 

Among many other wonderful things, we who once cared nothing about God’s heart are suddenly seeking to know it with all of our heart. 

And when we sin, and we will, it grieves our heart.

We invite you to receive the sacrifice that was made for you by the Son of God in order that He might save you from God’s wrath and give you eternal life.

John 7:38

Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’

    Just beautiful teaching. As a gentile believer, I would want to study Hebrew all day! What a glimpse into the heart of God!

    I realized several years ago that we have over 100 versions of the Bible available to us today, but the best way to understand what Yeshua is trying to teach us is to study the Bible in the original picture language it was written in. CJ, thank you and keep up the good work you are doing!
