EZEKI”EL” 1:7 (calf/taurus, bull, 7 stars=PLEIADES) And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf’s foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.
Wheels within wheels:
This Hebraic connection between thought and experience is reflected in the meanings of some of the words we read in the Bible. For example, emunah, the Hebrew word for “faith” in Habakkuk 2:4 (“…the just shall live by his faith”), carries the connotation of constancy, steadiness, stability, or reliability. Biblical faith, then, is much more than intellectual assent to the truth of certain doctrines; instead, it is an unwavering trust that is backed up by actions (see James 2:17-24; [2, pp. 182-185]).
In this article, I would like to focus on a second example: zakar, the Hebrew word for “remember.” We may often think of memory as a purely mental faculty involving the retention of information. But when we examine the biblical concept of remembrance, we will see that “remembering” in the Bible usually leads to or results from purposeful action. We will also see that remembrance is an integral part of worship and of the function of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers.
Remembrance Leads to Action
The Hebrew word zakar is almost always translated “remember” in the King James Version of the Bible. Occasionally, though, it is rendered as “think”, “mention”, or “record.” For instance, in Gen. 40:14 Joseph tells Pharaoh’s chief butler,
“But think on me when it shall be well with thee, and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, and bring me out of this house:”
In this verse, zakar is the Hebrew word for both “think” and “mention.” These variations in translation give an indication that zakar includes both thought and deed. Joseph would like the butler to do more than just be aware of the fact that he is still incarcerated. He is urging the butler to take positive action to help him get out of prison.
In the Hebrew scriptures, zakar is often used in expressions about God “remembering” His covenant with His people (Gen. 9:15-16; Exod. 6:5; Lev. 26:42, 45; Ps. 105:8, 42; 106:45; Ezek. 16:60). For example, we read in Exodus 2:24 that as a result of Israel’s suffering in Egypt,
“God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.”
In this case, God’s remembering His covenant leads to His active intervention to rescue Israel from slavery. The connection between remembrance and rescue is made very explicit in Numbers 10:9:
“And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies.”
The word zakar also appears prominently in the prayers recorded in the Bible. People like Moses (Exod. 32:13), Samson (Judges 16:28), Hezekiah (2 Kings 20:3), Nehemiah (Neh. 13:14, 22, 29, 31), Jeremiah (Jer. 15:15; Lam. 5:1), and Habakkuk (Hab. 3:2) pray that God will remember them and the rest of His people. Such prayers call upon God not just to be cognizant of their existence, but in addition to take action on their behalf.
