Today we use the Gregorian calendar from Pope Gregory; from the 1500’s


Today is December 9, 2017 - in the 21 Century


December -- the tenth month - now it is the 12th month

Middle English decembre
Old French
december "tenth month"
decem "ten" + -ber (adj. suffix)

December had 30 days, until Numa when it had 29 days, until Julius when it became 31 days long.


We acknowledge God’s calendar

We are now in the ninth month of God called Chislev כִסְלֵו  - 19th day

Zech.7 [1] And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that the word of Yehovah came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month, even in Chisleu - Chislev

Always remember: Embellished made-up stories are still lies!

Sad to say, I know most of the world is getting ready to do the made up holidays Chanukah and Christmas now.

I get so many emails about these holidays to buy, buy, and buy.

Another year goes by and a new generation of the youth is deceived.


 Tis the season to be pagan” is all around us!

I am reminded always to inform you to beware of the false image of love, false emotions, loneliness, depression, financial drain, suicide.

Be aware of the artificial, false festival lights and music they put up.

Satan really sets the stage for you.

Beware if you feel or hear a voice telling you to separate yourself from the congregation, go off on your own and read or whatever.

Scriptures says:

Prov.11 [14] Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.

Let’s talk a little about Jerusalem


670 times in TaNaKh

144 in the Gospels and letters


In a nut shell:

City God put His name there

Temple built there

Jerusalem known as a burdensome stone

God destroys because of their sins – sends King Nebuchadnezzar

Rebuilt by Ezra, Nehemiah, Zerubbabel, others

Destroyed again because of their sins – Roman General Titus

(Approx. 70 AD to present, 2017 /2018 – no temple again

Last days:

God’s two witnesses preach, are killed, rise up

Jerusalem known as Sodom and Egypt

3rd Temple will be built again – man of sin, Anti-Messiah to sit on the throne

Last mighty battle to occur on earth

Messiah Yeshua’s return

Heaven and Earth dissolved

New Heaven and Earth – New Jerusalem created


Zion – Jerusalem - Salem

Holy hill of Zion – City of the Great King

City of God (on earth)

Here are a few different name and reference for Jerusalem

Josh. 18:28 - Jebusi, which is Jerusalem - יְבוּסִי הִיא יְרוּשָׁלִַם

Josh. 15:8 unto the south side of the Jebusite; the same is Jerusalem

Judges 19:10 Jebus, which is Jerusalem -  יְבוּס, הִיא יְרוּשָׁלִָם

1Chr.11 [4] Jerusalem, which is Jebus - יְרוּשָׁלִַם, הִיא יְבוּס


Gen.14[18] And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.

Pss.76[2] In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

Heb.7[1] For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;[2] To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;

God chose Jerusalem

2Chr.6 [6] But I have chosen Jerusalem, that My name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

Zech.3 [2] And Yehovah said unto Satan, Yehovah rebuke thee, O Satan; even Yehovah that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

A place for the Temple

Gen.22[2] And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.

2Chr.3[1] Then Solomon began to build the house of Yehovah at Jerusalem in mount Moriah, where Yehovah appeared unto David his father, in the place that David had prepared in the threshingfloor of Ornan the Jebusite.

Isa.29[1] Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! …


David and many Kings ruled there

1Kgs.2  [11] And the days that David reigned over Israel were forty years: seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem.

2Chr.6 [1] Then said Solomon, Yehovah hath said that he would dwell in the thick darkness.
[2] But I have built an house of habitation for thee, and a place for thy dwelling for ever.
[3] And the king turned his face, and blessed the whole congregation of Israel: and all the congregation of Israel stood.
[4] And he said, Blessed be Yehovah God of Israel, who hath with his hands fulfilled that which he spake with his mouth to my father David, saying,
[5] Since the day that I brought forth my people out of the land of Egypt I chose no city among all the tribes of Israel to build an house in, that my name might be there; neither chose I any man to be a ruler over my people Israel:
[6] But I have chosen Jerusalem, that my name might be there; and have chosen David to be over my people Israel.

2Chr.9 [30]Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel forty years.

Ezra.1[1] Now in the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of Yehovah by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, Yehovah stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom, and put it also in writing, saying, [2] Thus saith Cyrus king of Persia, Yehovah God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth; and he hath charged me to build Him an house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah.

House of God at Jerusalem

The temple which is at Jerusalem

Pss.51[18] Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

Pss.68 [29] Because of thy temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto thee.

Pss.79 [1] O God, the heathen are come into thine inheritance; thy holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps. [2] The dead bodies of thy servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven, the flesh of thy saints unto the beasts of the earth.

[3] Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.

Pss.102 [21] To declare the name of Yehovah in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

Pss.116[19] In the courts of Yehovah's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye Yehovah.

Pss.122 [1] I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of Yehovah. [2] Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.[3] Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

[6] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

Pss.125 [1] They that trust in Yehovah shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. [2] As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so Yehovah is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

Pss.128 [5] Yehovah shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

Pss.135 [21] Blessed be Yehovah out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye Yehovah.

Pss.137 [5] If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.[6] If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy. [7] Remember, Yehovah, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

Pss.147 [1] Praise ye Yehovah: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely. [2] Yehovah doth build up Jerusalem: he gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.

[12] Praise Yehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

2Sam.5 [7] Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.



Pss.2 [6] Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

Pss.9 [11] Sing praises to Yehovah, which dwelleth in Zion: declare among the people his doings.

[14] That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation.

Pss.14 [7] Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when Yehovah bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Pss.20 [2] Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion;

Pss.50 [1] The mighty God, even Yehovah, hath spoken, and called the earth from the rising of the sun unto the going down thereof. [2] Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

Pss.51 [18] Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.

Pss.53 [6] Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

Pss.69 [35] For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

Pss.74 [2] Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt.

Pss.76 [1] O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? [2] In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

Pss.78 [68] But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.

Pss.84 [7] They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

Pss.87 [1] His foundation is in the holy mountains. [2] Yehovah loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob. [3] Glorious things are spoken of thee, O city of God. Selah.

[5] And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the highest himself shall establish her.

Pss.97 [8] Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, Yehovah.

Pss.99 [1] Yehovah reigneth; let the people tremble: he sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth be moved.
[2] Yehovah is great in Zion; and he is high above all the people.
[3] Let them praise thy great and terrible name; for it is holy. Pss.102 [13] Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.

[16] When Yehovah shall build up Zion, he shall appear in his glory.

[21] To declare the name of Yehovah in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

Pss.110 [1] Yehovah said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. [2] Yehovah shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies.

Pss.125 [1] They that trust in Yehovah shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever. [2] As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so Yehovah is round about his people from henceforth even for ever.

Pss.126 [1] When Yehovah turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

Pss.128 [5] Yehovah shall bless thee out of Zion: and thou shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of thy life.

Pss.129 [5] Let them all be confounded and turned back that hate Zion.

Pss.132 [13] For Yehovah hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

Pss.133 [3] As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there Yehovah commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.

Pss.134 [3] Yehovah that made heaven and earth bless thee out of Zion.

Pss.135 [21] Blessed be Yehovah out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise ye Yehovah.

Pss.137 [1] By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion. [2] We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
[3] For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

Pss.146 [10] Yehovah shall reign for ever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye Yehovah.

Pss.147 [12] Praise Yehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

Pss.149 [1] Praise ye Yehovah. Sing unto Yehovah a new song, and his praise in the congregation of saints [2] Let Israel rejoice in him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

Pss.102[21] To declare the name of Yehovah in Zion, and his praise in Jerusalem;

Pss.147[12] Praise Yehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.

1Kgs.11[32] (But he shall have one tribe for my servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)

[36] And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.

2Kgs.9[28] And his servants carried him in a chariot to Jerusalem, and buried him in his sepulchre with his fathers in the city of David.


The great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt

Rev.11 [1] And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
[2] But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

[3] And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
[4] These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
[5] And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
[6] These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

[7] And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

[8] And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
[9] And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

[10] And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

[11] And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.



[1] Great is Yehovah, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.
2] Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3] God is known in her palaces for a refuge.
4] For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.
5] They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled, and hasted away.
6] Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.
7] Thou breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.
8] As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of Yehovah of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.
9] We have thought of thy lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of thy temple.
10] According to thy name, O God, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness.
11] Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters of Judah be glad, because of thy judgments.
12] Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.
13] Mark ye well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that ye may tell it to the generation following.
14] For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.

Isa.52[1] Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.

Matt.5 [34] But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: [35] Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.


New Jerusalem

Rev.3[12] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.


[1] And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

[2] And I John saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

[3] And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
[4] And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
[5] And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
[6] And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
[7] He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
[9] And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
[10] And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
[11] Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
[12] And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
[13] On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
[14] And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
[15] And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
[16] And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
[17] And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
[18] And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
[19] And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
[20] The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
[21] And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
[22] And I saw no temple therein: for Yehovah God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
[23] And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
[24] And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
[25] And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
[26] And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
[27] And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

New heavens and a new earth

Isa.65[17] For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

[18] But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.

[19] And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying.

[20] There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.

[21] And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them.

[22] They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.
[23] They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of Yehovah, and their offspring with them.
[24] And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.
[25] The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith Yehovah.

Isa.66[22] For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith Yehovah, so shall your seed and your name remain.

2Pet.3 [1] This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
[2] That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of Yehovah and Saviour:
[3] Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
[4] And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
[5] For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
[6] Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
[7] But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
[8] But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with Yehovah as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
[9] Yehovah is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

[10] But the day of the Lord (Yeshua) will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved,

what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
[12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

[13] Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

[14] Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

[15] And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
[16] As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
[17] Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

[18] But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Yeshua the Messiah.

To Him be glory both now and forever, Amen.

Keep one eye on Jerusalem

Shabbat Shalom

I will explain the Sabbath again quickly, if needed.


The Sabbath is not "a service" for an hour and a half, but the Sabbath is a "whole 24 hr. day" to the God of Israel, the 4th Commandment.


The Sabbath is not every day

Scriptures says: Exod.20 [10] But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yehovah thy God:

in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

[11] For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.


 The word Sabbath is "60 times" in the Gospels and letters


 Question: S0 why are we here today?


Answer: We were told to remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy


The Sabbath is the 4th Commandment and part of the “covenant” given to us at Mount Sinai in the 3rd month, Sivan


Ex. 20 [8] Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

[9] Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

[10] But the seventh day is the Sabbath of Yehovah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

[11] For in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yehovah blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it.


Lev. 23 [1] And Yehovah spake unto Moses, saying,[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them,

Concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts.

[3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.


Within your gates - in all your dwellings


Unto this day, some people are still breaking the 4th commandment each week by not keeping the Sabbath as it is described above.


I shall again define a few words for you:


זכר zâkar - zaw-kar' - A primitive root; properly to mark (so as to be recognized), that is, to remember; by implication to mention; make mention of, be mindful, recount, record (-er), remember, make to be remembered, bring (call, come, keep, put) to (in) remembrance, still, think on, well.


Holy Convocation

מקרא   miqra: convocation, convoking, reading, a calling together, sacred assembly, something called out, that is, a public meeting (the act, the persons, or the place); also a rehearsal

קדשׁ  kodesh: a sacred place or thing; consecrated, dedicated, hallowed, holiness, saint, sanctuary, apartness, sacredness, separateness, apartness, sacredness, holiness


No Servile work - melakat avodah   מְלֶאכֶת עֲבֹדָה
