    Genesis 05 : 21-24 (LEB) See Exegesis
  11. 5 And Yahweh saw that the evil of humankind was great upon the earth, and every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was always only evil. 6 And Yahweh regretted that he had made humankind on the earth, and ⌊he was grieved in his heart⌋. 7 And Yahweh said, “I will destroy humankind whom I created from upon the face of the earth, from humankind, to animals, to creeping things, and to the birds of heaven, for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of Yahweh.

  13. 11 And the earth was corrupted before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth was filled with violence because of them.

    Genesis 07 : 16-16 (LEB) See Exegesis
  19. 5 Then Yahweh came down to see the city and the tower that ⌊humankind⌋ was building. 6 And Yahweh said, “Behold, ⌊they are one people with one language⌋, and ⌊this is only the beginning of what they will do⌋. So now nothing that they intend to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language there, so that they will not understand ⌊each other’s language⌋.” 8 So Yahweh scattered them from there over the face of the whole earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 Therefore its name was called Babel, for there Yahweh confused the language of the whole earth, and there Yahweh scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

    Genesis 11 : 05-09 (LEB) See Exegesis
  20. 1 And Yahweh said to Abram, “Go out from your land and from your relatives, and from the house of your father, to the land that I will show you. 2 And I will make you a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will make your name great. And you will be a blessing. 3 And I will bless those who bless you, and those who curse you I will curse. And all families of the earth will be blessed in you.” Abram’s Journey 4 And Abram went out as Yahweh had told him, and Lot went with him. Now Abram ⌊was seventy-five years old⌋ when he went out from Haran.

    Genesis 12 : 01-04 (LEB) See Exegesis
  21. 6 And Abram traveled through the land up to the place of Shechem, to the Oak of Moreh. Now the Canaanites were in the land at that time. 7 And Yahweh appeared to Abram and said, “To your offspring I will give this land.” And he built an altar there to Yahweh, who had appeared to him.

    Genesis 12 : 06-07 (LEB) See Exegesis
  22. 8 And he moved on from there to the hill country, east of Bethel. And he pitched his tent at Bethel on the west, and at Ai on the east. And he built an altar there to Yahweh. And he called on the name of Yahweh.

    Genesis 12 : 08-08 (LEB) See Exegesis
  23. 3 And he went according to his journey from the Negev, then to Bethel, to the place where his tent was at the beginning, between Bethel and Ai, 4 to the place where he had made an altar at the beginning. And Abram called on the name of Yahweh there.

    Genesis 13 : 03-04 (LEB) See Exegesis
  24. 10 And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw the whole plain of the Jordan, that all of it was well-watered land—this was before Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah—like the garden of Yahweh, like the land of Egypt ⌊in the direction of⌋ Zoar.

    Genesis 13 : 10-10 (LEB) See Exegesis
  25. 14 And Yahweh said to Abram after Lot had separated from him, “Now, lift up your eyes and look from the place where you are to the north, and to the south, and to the east and to the west, 15 for all the land which you see I will give to you, and to your descendants, forever. 16 I will make your descendants like the dust of the earth which, if anyone were able to count the dust of the earth, your descendants would be so counted. 17 Arise, go through the length of the land and through its breadth, for I will give it to you.” 18 So Abram pitched his tent, and he came and settled at the oaks of Mamre, which were at Hebron. And there he built an altar to Yahweh.

    Genesis 13 : 14-18 (LEB) See Exegesis
  26. 1 Yahweh’s Covenant with Abram 15 After these things the word of Yahweh came to Abram in a vision, saying: “Do not be afraid, Abram; I am your shield, and your reward shall be very great.” 2 Then Abram said, “O Yahweh, my Lord, what will you give me? ⌊I continue to be⌋ childless, and ⌊my heir⌋ is Eliezer of Damascus.” 3 And Abram said, “Look, you have not given me a descendant, and here, ⌊a member of my household⌋ is ⌊my heir⌋.” 4 And behold, the word of Yahweh came to him saying, “This person will not ⌊be your heir⌋, but ⌊your own son will be your heir⌋.” 5 And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward the heavens and count the stars if you are able to count them.” And he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 6 And he believed in Yahweh, and he reckoned it to him as righteousness. 7 And he said to him, “I am Yahweh, who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give this land to you, to possess it.”

    Genesis 15 : 01-07 (LEB) See Exegesis
  27. 8 And he said, “O Yahweh God, how shall I know that I will possess it?” 9 And he said to him, “Take for me a three-year-old heifer, and a three-year-old female goat, and a three-year-old ram, and a turtledove and a young pigeon.” 10 And he took for him all these and cut them in pieces down the middle. And he put each piece opposite ⌊the other⌋, but the birds he did not cut. 11 And the birds of prey came down on the carcasses, but Abram drove them away. 12 And it happened, as the sun ⌊went down⌋, then a deep sleep fell upon Abram and, behold, a great terrifying darkness fell upon him. 13 And he said to Abram, “⌊You must surely know⌋ that your descendants shall be as aliens in a land ⌊not their own⌋. And they shall serve them and they shall oppress them four hundred years. 14 And also the nation that they serve I will judge. Then afterward they shall go out with great possessions. 15 And as for you, you shall go to your ancestors in peace; you shall be buried in a good old age. 16 And the fourth generation shall return here, for the guilt of the Amorites ⌊is not yet complete⌋.” 17 And after the sun had gone down and it was dusk, behold, a smoking firepot and a flaming torch passed between those half pieces. 18 On that day Yahweh ⌊made⌋ a covenant with Abram saying, “To your offspring I will give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates river, 19 the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.”

    Genesis 15 : 08-21 (LEB) See Exegesis
  28. 7 And the angel of Yahweh found her at a spring of water in the wilderness, at the spring by the road of Shur. 8 And he said to Hagar, the female slave of Sarai, “⌊From where⌋ have you come, and where are you going?” And she said, “I am fleeing from the presence of Sarai my mistress.” 9 Then the angel of Yahweh said to her, “Return to your mistress and submit yourself under ⌊her authority⌋.” 10 And the angel of Yahweh said to her, “⌊I will greatly multiply⌋ your offspring, so that they cannot be counted for their abundance.” 11 And the angel of Yahweh said to her: “Behold, you are pregnant and shall have a son. And you shall call his name Ishmael, for Yahweh has listened to your suffering. 12 And he shall be a wild donkey of a man, his hand will be against everyone, and the hand of everyone will be against him, and he will live ⌊in hostility with all his brothers⌋.” 13 So she called the name of Yahweh who spoke to her, “You are El-Roi,” for she said, “Here I have seen after he who sees me.” 14 Therefore the well was called Beer-Lahai-Roi; behold, it is between Kadesh and Bered.

    Genesis 16 : 07-14 (LEB) See Exegesis
  29. 20 “When your child asks you in the future, ⌊saying⌋, ‘What is the meaning of the legal provisions and the rules and the regulations that Yahweh our God commanded for you?’ 21 Then you shall say to your child, ‘We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, and Yahweh brought us out from Egypt with a strong hand. 22 And Yahweh gave great and awesome signs and wonders in Egypt against Pharaoh and against his entire household ⌊in our presence⌋. 23 But he brought us out from there in order to bring us here to give us the land that he swore to our ancestors. 24 And so Yahweh commanded us to observe all of these rules and to revere Yahweh our God ⌊for our benefit⌋ ⌊all the days that we live⌋, ⌊as it is today⌋. 25 And it shall be righteousness for us if we diligently observe and do all of this commandment ⌊before⌋ Yahweh our God, as he has commanded us.’

    Deuteronomy 06 : 20-25 (LEB) See Exegesis
  30. 13 “⌊I continued watching⌋ in the visions of the night, and look, with the clouds of heaven one like a son of man was coming, and he came to the Ancient of Days, and ⌊was presented⌋ before him. 14 And to him was given dominion and glory and kingship that all the peoples, the nations, and languages would serve him; his dominion is a dominion ⌊without end⌋ that will not cease, and his kingdom is one that will not be destroyed.

      Genesis was written by post-exodus Israelites for post-exodus Israelites. The cherubim are Yahweh's throne guardians and are the first thing you see when you walk into the Holy of Holies (the innermost sanctum of the Tabernacle and Temple).

    1. Noah is pleasing and unblemished making him suitable to interact with Yahweh locally, or in nearness.
      Show Exegesis
      9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, without defect in his generations. Noah walked with God. Genesis 06 : 09-09 (LEB)
      9 אֵ֚לֶּה תּוֹלְדֹ֣ת נֹ֔חַ נֹ֗חַ אִ֥ישׁ צַדִּ֛יק תָּמִ֥ים הָיָ֖ה בְּדֹֽרֹתָ֑יו אֶת־הָֽאֱלֹהִ֖ים הִֽתְהַלֶּךְ־נֹֽחַ׃ Genesis 06 : 09-09 (lhb)

      Noah's name is itself a play on words based on the comfort Yahweh receives from the "pleasing aroma" of sacrifice, that which is brought near.

      "Noah walked with God." It seems that the ability to interact with Yahweh corporeally tends to be coupled with cleanness, or, un-blemished-ness. Blameless is an abstraction used in human instances of crimes/charges. But the word is used most frequently in the Torah for sacrificial animals, completely devoid of a criminal/judicial context. The reason Adam fled when he heard Yahweh walking (shame/broken command/ nakedness), is the opposite of the reason Noah was able to walked with and before God: He is righteous, but he is also blameless, a term associated with sacrifice and the ability of an animal to be brought before Yahweh.

  13. Genesis 06 : 11-13 See Doctrine

    Exegetical Patterns and Emphasis in this Doctrine:

    1. Yahweh is talking with Noah in person, locally about what's going to happen.
      Show Exegesis
      1 And the earth was corrupted before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth was filled with violence because of them. Now, look, I am going to destroy them along with the earth. Genesis 06 : 11-13 (LEB)
      10 וַיֹּ֕אמֶר אֶת־קֹלְךָ֥ שָׁמַ֖עְתִּי בַּגָּ֑ן וָאִירָ֛א כִּֽי־עֵירֹ֥ם 11 וַתִּשָּׁחֵ֥ת הָאָ֖רֶץ לִפְנֵ֣י הָֽאֱלֹהִ֑ים וַתִּמָּלֵ֥א הָאָ֖רֶץ חָמָֽס׃ 12 וַיַּ֧רְא אֱלֹהִ֛ים אֶת־הָאָ֖רֶץ וְהִנֵּ֣ה נִשְׁחָ֑תָה כִּֽי־הִשְׁחִ֧ית כָּל־בָּשָׂ֛ר אֶת־דַּרְכּ֖וֹ עַל־הָאָֽרֶץ׃ ס 13 וַיֹּ֨אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֜ים לְנֹ֗חַ קֵ֤ץ כָּל־בָּשָׂר֙ בָּ֣א לְפָנַ֔י כִּֽי־מָלְאָ֥ה הָאָ֛רֶץ חָמָ֖ס מִפְּנֵיהֶ֑ם וְהִנְנִ֥י מַשְׁחִיתָ֖ם אֶת־הָאָֽרֶץ׃ Genesis 6:11–13 (LHB)

      The use of the hebrew, "before/to the face of the Elohim (singular with article)" tends to be used in direct person-to-person encounters. Additionally, it says in verse 12, "and he saw, God, the land, and behold". Employing the interjection "Behold/Look" is best reconstructed to mean Yahweh was investigating the corruption firsthand, in person, corporeally.

      Verse 13 seems to be best reconstructed as a direct dialogue with Yahweh, down before Noah in person. That Yahweh locally interacts with Noah seems to be indicated by the simplest/prima-facie reading of Genesis 6.9

    2. When Elohim functions as Judge of All the Earth, he, Yahweh does so firsthand, locally.

Additionally, it says in verse 12, "and he saw, God, the land, and behold". Employing the interjection "Behold/Look" is best reconstructed to mean Yahweh was investigating the corruption firsthand, in person, corporeally. This is in line with Genesis 3 and the garden, and in line with Genesis 11 and the tower of Babel, and in line with Genesis 18-19 with investigating Sodom and Gomorrah.

      This would seem to indicate a connection between corporeality and judgment. Yahweh, as judge of all the earth, gives the case a firsthand inspection, rather than sitting in an ivory-towered courtroom in heaven. This would probably be very comforting to an ancient, who would probably be used to a judge "on circuit", traveling from locale to locale, establishing justice in his domain.

      20 “When your child asks you in the future, ⌊saying⌋, ‘What is the meaning of the legal provisions and the rules and the regulations that Yahweh our God commanded for you?’ 21 Then you shall say to your child, ‘We were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt, and Yahweh brought us out from Egypt with a strong hand. 22 And Yahweh gave great and awesome signs and wonders in Egypt against Pharaoh and against his entire household ⌊in our presence⌋. 23 But he brought us out from there in order to bring us here to give us the land that he swore to our ancestors. 24 And so Yahweh commanded us to observe all of these rules and to revere Yahweh our God ⌊for our benefit⌋ ⌊all the days that we live⌋, ⌊as it is today⌋. 25 And it shall be righteousness for us if we diligently observe and do all of this commandment ⌊before⌋ Yahweh our God, as he has commanded us.’ Deuteronomy 06 : 20-25 (LEB)
      20 כִּֽי־יִשְׁאָלְךָ֥ בִנְךָ֛ מָחָ֖ר לֵאמֹ֑ר מָ֣ה הָעֵדֹ֗ת וְהַֽחֻקִּים֙ וְהַמִּשְׁפָּטִ֔ים אֲשֶׁ֥ר צִוָּ֛ה יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ אֶתְכֶֽם׃ 21 וְאָמַרְתָּ֣ לְבִנְךָ֔ עֲבָדִ֛ים הָיִ֥ינוּ לְפַרְעֹ֖ה בְּמִצְרָ֑יִם וַיּוֹצִיאֵ֧נוּ יְהוָ֛ה מִמִּצְרַ֖יִם בְּיָ֥ד חֲזָקָֽה׃ 22 וַיִּתֵּ֣ן יְהוָ֡ה אוֹתֹ֣ת וּ֠מֹפְתִים גְּדֹלִ֨ים וְרָעִ֧ים׀ בְּמִצְרַ֛יִם בְּפַרְעֹ֥ה וּבְכָל־בֵּית֖וֹ לְעֵינֵֽינוּ׃ 23 וְאוֹתָ֖נוּ הוֹצִ֣יא מִשָּׁ֑ם לְמַ֙עַן֙ הָבִ֣יא אֹתָ֔נוּ לָ֤תֶת לָ֙נוּ֙ אֶת־הָאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֥ר נִשְׁבַּ֖ע לַאֲבֹתֵֽינוּ׃ 24 וַיְצַוֵּ֣נוּ יְהוָ֗ה לַעֲשׂוֹת֙ אֶת־כָּל־הַחֻקִּ֣ים הָאֵ֔לֶּה לְיִרְאָ֖ה אֶת־יְהוָ֣ה אֱלֹהֵ֑ינוּ לְט֥וֹב לָ֙נוּ֙ כָּל־הַיָּמִ֔ים לְחַיֹּתֵ֖נוּ כְּהַיּ֥וֹם הַזֶּֽה׃ 25 וּצְדָקָ֖ה תִּֽהְיֶה־לָּ֑נוּ כִּֽי־נִשְׁמֹ֨ר לַעֲשׂ֜וֹת אֶת־כָּל־הַמִּצְוָ֣ה הַזֹּ֗את לִפְנֵ֛י יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ כַּאֲשֶׁ֥ר צִוָּֽנוּ׃ ס Deuteronomy 06 : 20-25 (LhB)

      The use of the hebrew, "before/to the face of Yahweh Elohenu [our God/ God of us]" (לִפְנֵ֛י יְהוָ֥ה אֱלֹהֵ֖ינוּ) The Hebrew evinces the idea that Yahweh would be present locally with Israel in the land, so that their actions would be performed BEFORE HIS FACE DIRECTLY. The first commandment is concerned with the setup of Yahweh being locally in the presence of Israel, in the land, in the tabernacle. The purpose of the commands is how to live with Yahweh locally, NOW THAT HE HAS SHOWN UP, SAVED YOU AND BROUGHT YOU NEAR.

      More simply, the purpose of commands is how to be proteges, kids, rooming with Yahweh. It's how we are to share space with Yahweh as our roomie.
