Babel and the corruption of Judaism

Judaism, or the Jewish religion,

has been corrupted by Babel בבל Babylon!

It has happened ever so subtly,

yet the corruption has occurred!

This corruption has had

devastating effects

upon the Jewish people

and upon Israel as a nation.

Yet what is amazing is that

this corruption by Babel

was prophesied by the

prophet Zechariah זכריה .

It is pinpointed in this prophecy

and it is accurately described.

We will examine this prophecy,

and unfold its interpretation.

Zechariah 5:5-11.

“Then the angel that talked

with me went forth,

and said to me,

Lift up now your eyes,

and see what is this that goes forth.

And I said, What is it?

And he said,

This is an ephah that goes forth.

He said moreover,

This is their resemblance

through all the earth.

And, behold, there was lifted up

a talent of lead:

and this is a woman that sits

in the midst of the ephah.

and he said,

this is wickedness.

And he cast it into

the midst of the ephah:

and he cast the weight of lead

upon the mouth thereof.

Then I lifted up my eyes,

and looked, and, behold

there came out two women,

and the wind was in their wings;

for they had wings like

the wings of a stork:

and they lifted up the ephah between

the earth and the heaven.

Then I said to the angel

who talked with me,

Where do these bear the ephah?

And he said to me,

to build it a house

in the land of Shinar:

and it shall be established,

and set there

upon her own base.”

ויצא המלאך הדובר בי

ויאמר עלי שא נא עיניך וראה

מה היוצאת הזאת:

ואמר מה היא

ויאמר זאת האיפה היוצאת

ויאמר זאת עינם בכל הארץ:

והנה ככר עפרת נשאת

וזאת אשה אחת

יושבת בתוך האיפה:

ויאמר זות הרשעה

וישלך אתה אל תוך האיפה

וישלך את אבן העופרת אל פיה:

ואשא עיני וארא

והנה שתים נשים יוצאות

ורוח בכנפיהם

ולהנה כנפים ככנפי החסידה

ותשנה את האיפה

בין הארץ ובין השמים:

ואמר אל המלאך הדובר בי

אנה המה מולכות

את האיפה:

ויאמר אלי

לבנות לה בית

בארץ שנער

והוכן והניחה שם

על מכנתה:

The Interpretation.

1. The Ephah האיפה

is the Tanach התנך

and more specifically,

the Torah התורה .

The ephah האיפה is a measure

used in Temple worship

in Jerusalem. בית המקדש .

It represents the written

Word of the LORD which

is comprised by the Tanach תנך .

It is the sustenance of Israel.

Because it it written

in Deuteronomy 8:3

“Man does not live by bread only,

but by every word that proceeds

out of the mouth of the HASHEM

does man live.”

לא על הלחם לבדו

יחיה האדם

כי על כל מוצא פי יהוה

יחיה האדם:

2. The woman is Babel בבל Babylon.

She is the mystery Babylon.

She is the great whore זונה הגדולה .

She is the woman described in Proverbs.

משלי שלמה

She flatters and entices with

her smooth and pleasant words;

Proverbs 5:3.

“For the lips of a strange woman

drop as a honeycomb,

and her mouth

is smoother than oil.”

כי נפת תטפנה

שפתי זרה

וחלק משמן חכה:

She seduces men with her wiles.

Proverbs 7:21.

“With her much fair speech

she caused him to yield,

with the flattering of her lips

she forced him.”

הטתו ברב לקחה

בחלק שפתיה תדיחנו:

But her end is bitterness and destruction.

Proverbs 5:4-5.

“But her end is bitter as wormwood,

sharp as a two edged sword.

Her feet go down to death;

her steps take hold on hell.”

ואחריתה מרה כלענה

חדה כחרב פיות:

רגליה ירדות מות

שאול צעדיה יתמכו:

And again in Proverbs 7:26-27.

“For she has cast down many wounded:

Yes! Many strong men

have been slain by her.

Her house is the way to hell,

going down to the chambers of death.”

כי רבים חללים הפילה

ועצומים כל הרגיה:

דרכי שאול ביתה

ירדות אל חדרי מות:

She has the outward appearance of beauty,

and looks like the virtuous woman אשת חיל ,

but she is wickedness.

She is described in the book of Revelation.

ספר חזון יוחנן

She is the ‘ queen of heaven‘;

and is controlled by the evil spirit

that is behind the ‘queen of heaven.’

When she is cast into the ephah,

she corrupts the Word of the LORD.

With her smooth and pleasant words,

and her many commentaries,

she seduces Jews and brings them

into her net of destruction.

3. The talent of lead is the

heaviness that comes upon all

those who are seduced by the woman.

She causes a blindness of eyes,

so that those who are deceived by her

cannot see.

She causes a dullness of hearing

so that those who are caught in her net

cannot hear the word of the LORD.

Isaiah the prophet saw this condition

and he prophesied concerning it

in Isaiah 6:9.

“And he said,

Go, and tell this people,

Hear you indeed,

but understand not;

and see you indeed,

but perceive not.

Make the heart of this people fat,

and make their ears heavy,

and shut their eyes;

lest they see with their eyes,

and hear with their ears,

and understand with their heart,

and return to me and be healed.”

ויאמר לך

ואמרת לעם הזה

שמעו שמוע ואל תבינו

וראו ראו ואל תדעו:

השמן לב העם הזה

ואזנו הכבד

ועיניו השע

פן יראה בעיניו

ובאזניו ישמע

ולבבו יבין

ושב ורפא לו :

Once the Tanach has been corrupted

by the whore of Babylon,

the people under her influence

are prevented from entering

into the liberty and truth

by the lead weight upon

the mouth of the ephah.

They cannot enter in

because their eyes are blinded,

their ears are deafened,

and heaviness is upon them.

4. The ephah is carried by

the two women with the

wings of a stork to the

plain of Shinar which is in

Babel בבל Babylon.

When Judah (Israel) was taken

captive to Babylon,

a center of Jewish learning

and activity was established there.

This center of learning

developed and influenced the

interpretations and understanding

of the Torah תורה and the

Tanach תנך in general.

A large body of writings

was developed, and it

continually exerted its influence

on Jewish thought as it

evolved for centuries.

And its base was in Babylon.

Its sweet influence, and its

pleasant and persuasive arguments,

corrupted the Tanach תנך

and caused a blindness and

a dullness of hearing to

come upon Israel,

exactly as the prophets

of Israel prophesied.

This has caused great destructions

upon our people.
