Parashat Tetzevah

Updated on February 24, 2018

Shemot (Exodus) 27:20-30:10

The menorah lamp must stay lit from evening until morning with pure olive oil that the Yisra’el-ites are to collect.

There were four pieces of the priestly uniform that was to be worn by each priest: a robe, a woven tunic, a turban, and a sash. The kohen gadol (high priest) himself also wore an ephod or apron-like garment that was made with blue, purple, and red wool and linen and gold thread, a breastplate that contained twelve precious stones inscribed with the names of the twelve sons, or tribes, or Yisra’el, a blue coat-like garment that was decorated with pomegranates on the hem interspersed with golden bells, and a golden plate with the inscription “SET-APARTNESS TO YEHOVAH” written on it.

There is a complex seven-day ordination and consecration of Aharon and his sons, during which time many sacrifices were made. Afterward, an altar of acacia wood for burning incense was made and overlaid with gold.

What does this mean for the Believer and Follower of Yeshua ha-Meshiach today

This week we learned that the kohen gadol (high priest) and his sons had a very specific and detailed uniform that they were to don for the duties in the Tabernacle, either in the courtyard or in the Dwelling Place. We, also, have a very specific uniform of which to don ourselves for protection against the adversary of YeHoVaH … “the complete armor of Elohim” (Eph’siyim (Ephesians) 6:11 …

“Put on the complete armor of Elohim, for you to have power to stand against the schemes of the devil. Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up the complete armor of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day, and having done all, to stand. Stand then, having girded your waist with truth (Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 11:5), and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 59:17), and having fitted your feet with the preparation o the Good News of peace (Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 52:7); above all, having taken up the shield of belief with which you shall have power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one. Take also the helmet of deliverance (Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 59:17) and the sword of Ruach HaKodesh, which is the Word of Elohim.” (TS2009)

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 11:5--”And righteousness shall be the girdle of His loins, and trustworthiness the girdle of His waist.” (TS2009)

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 52:7--”How pleasant upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings good news, who proclaims deliverance, who says to Tsiyon, ‘Your Elohim reigns!’” (TS2009)

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 59:17--”And He put on righteousness as a breastplate, and a helmet of deliverance on His head. And He put on garments of vengeance for clothing, and wrapped Himself with ardor as a mantle.” (TS2009)

Be sure to read the Haftarah text.

Yehezqel (Ezekiel) 43:10-27

Zachor reading … Devarim (Deuteronomy) 25:17-19 …

Zachor reading … Devarim (Deuteronomy) 25:17-19 …

“Remember what Amaleq did to you on the way as you were coming out of Mitsrayim,

How he met you on the way and attacked your back, all the feeble ones in your rear, when you were tired and weary. And he did not fear Elohim.

Therefore it shall be, when YeHoVaH your Elohim has given you rest from your enemies all around, in the land which YeHoVaH your Elohim is giving you to possess as an inheritance, that you blot out the remembrance of Amaleq from under the heavens. Do not forget!”
