The prophet Jeremiah is repeating the words of our Creator, YHVH, (the Eternal Name).  To study this verse in its original Hebrew click the link and then “Hebrew” above the verse:


“Torah” is described as, “the Ancient/Eternal (Olam #5769) Pathways, (Nathiyb #5419)” “the Good, (Tov #2896) Walk, (Halak #1980),” where those who walk in it are promised to Find, (Matza #4672) Rest, (Margoa #4771) for their Souls, (Nephesh #5315).”

Walk in Torah and You Will Find Rest for Your Souls

“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  Matthew 11:29, 30

Jesus/Yehoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation) Is Torah, The Way, The Truth and The Life.  “Yoking” to Him means walking in Torah just as He did, 1 John 2:6 

“I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.”  John 14:6; John 1:14,17

Torah Is Truth

“Sanctify them by the TruthYour Word is Truth.” John 17:17

“And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free.” John 8:32

Your Word Is the essence of Truth, and all Your Righteous Judgments Endure, (Olam #5769).” Psalm 119:160 

“He that says, I know Him, and does not keep His commandments/instructions is a liar, and the Truth is not in him.” 1 John 2:4

“If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not do the Truth1 John 1:6

Torah Is Life

“To the law Torah #8451 and to the testimony!  If they do not speak according to this Word, they have no Light of Dawn, (Shachar #7837).” Isaiah 8:20

Torah is referred to as, “Light,” like the “Dawn.”  Those without Torah have no Light.  Watch this figurative language as it reveals that Torah Is Light and Light Is Life.

Yehoshua said, I Am the Light of the world whoever follows Me will never walk in darkness, but will have the Light of Life”  John 8:12

“In Him was Life, and that Life was the Light of men.” John 1:4 

You are the Light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14 

We also have the message of the prophets, which has been confirmed beyond doubt. And you will do well to pay attention to this message, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.” 2 Peter 1:19

The Path of the Righteous is like the first gleam of Dawn, shining brighter and brighter until midday.” Proverbs 4:18

“For God, who said, “Let Light shine out of darkness,” made His Light shine in our hearts to give us the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ/Yehoshua Messiah.” 2 Corinthians 4:6 

And God said, “Let there be Light,” and there was Light.  And seeing that the Light was good, God separated the Light from the darkness.” Genesis 1:3

Torah Is Perfect

Torah Is Perfect/Blameless, (Tamim), Spiritual/Eternal:  Romans 7:14James 1:25; Psalm 18:30Psalm 19:7

You must not Add to or Take Away from what I command you, so that you may keep the commandments of the LORD YHVH your God I am giving you.” Deuteronomy 4:2

“See that you do everything I command you; do not add to it or subtract from it.” Deuteronomy 12:32

A True Prophet would never add or take away from Torah.  This makes it easy to spot the deceiver/satan/adversary/false prophet.

Do not confuse Yehoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation) with the man-made religions of the world.  Our Creator did not ADD any heavy burdens to Torah and He most certainly did NOT REMOVE Torah all together.

Our Creator does test us, and He instructs us to test the words and actions of others, by His Torah:  Genesis 22:1Deuteronomy 8:2Psalm 11:5Revelation 2:2.

Torah reveals that our Bible Scholars and Religious leaders are “Blind Guides.”  Indoctrinated and mislead, in turn they unwittingly mislead the masses with every bad, bias and misinterpreted translation.

“Torah” is one example of a bad translation.  All the beautiful descriptions of Torah are translated, “Law.” “Legalism,” referring to the man-made additions to Torah, is also translated, “Law.”  The “Curse of sin and Death,” is translated, “Law,” and “Torahlessness is translated, “Lawlessness.”

“For those who guide this people mislead them, and those they mislead are swallowed up.” Isaiah 9:16

“Disregard them! They are blind guides. If a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit.” Matthew 15:14

When we see the word “Law” in the New Testament it is difficult to know what it is referring to, even if you look up the Greek you will only find the word, “Nomos.”

Thankfully, the New Testament references the original Hebrew so much it is possible to find and compare these bad English translations to the original Hebrew.

Torah Is Righteousness

“There is Life in the Path of Righteousness, but another path leads to death.” Proverbs 12:28

Torah Is the Path of Righteousness.  It Always Has Been and Will Be the Way of Life.

Torah has existed from the beginning, long before it was given to Moses at Mt. Siani.  https://www.betemunah.org/b4sinai.html

Although Yehoshua fulfilled what the Scriptures revealed about Him, He did not abolish a jot or tittle from the Torah:  Luke 24:27; John 5:39Matthew 5:17,18

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look at the earth below; for the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment, and its people will die like gnats. But My Salvation, (Yeshua #3444) will last forever, (Olam) and My Righteousness, (Tzedakah #6666) will not be Abolished.” (Chatath #2865). Isaiah 51:6; Matthew 24:35

Torah Is Eternal

Torah  reveals a Spiritual picture of YHVH’s Salvation.  From creation, the promise of the Seed, Noah, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to Israel’s oppression, deliverance, humbling, the details YHVH’s Tabernacle, sacrifices, everything foreshadowed Yehoshua, (YHVH’s Salvation).

Torah is a Hebrew word but it is far greater than the Jewish religion.  The Light of Torah reveals Abraham’s promised inheritance was a Spiritual, (Olam) blessing of Life for All nations/peoples/families: Genesis 12:3Galatians 3:8.

The lineage of the promised Seed/Messiah Yehoshua was temporarily set-apart in order to reveal its Spiritual fulfillment.  Spiritually we are All One in His Spirit, Galatians 3:28.

The Way of Life Is Not Too Difficult For You

For this commandment I give you today is not too difficult for you or beyond your reach.  It is not in heaven, that you would need to ask, “Who will ascend into heaven to get it for us and proclaim it, that we may obey it?” Deuteronomy 30:11; 12 

Look over our Creator’s instructions, some were given to the High Priest, the Priests, the Levites…for the physical Temple that now lives within us.  Some instructions were for women and others pertained to men.

Yehoshua summed the all up by declaring these two instructions as the Greatest: Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18; Matthew 22:40.

“‘Love the Lord YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:38 

The Way, Truth and Life still stands!  Revealing to us, by the physical patterns, mankind’s renewed Spiritual Life.  Yehoshua Is the promised, prophesied, Anointed/Messiah, the King of Righteousness and King of kings.  He Is the reason the world has Hope in Abraham’s promised inheritance, in His Kingdom, on the renewed heaven and earth.
