שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם


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

Today’s date: Oct.8, 2022


October -- the eighth month – now the 10th month

Middle English octobre
Latin October
Latin octo "eight" + -ber (adj. suffix)
Latin october mensis "eighth month"

October has always had 31 days.


The God of Israel has His own Calendar: we are now in the 7th month called:

הָאֵתָנִים - ha Ethanim – 11th  day - 1Kings 8:2


Today’s Topic:


Some Creatures of God



I noticed, the word “animal” is not in the Scriptures

Gen.1[21]…God created great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

[22] And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.
[23] And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.



[1] And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
[2] That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.

[3] And Yehovah said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
[4] There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
[5] And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
[6] And it repented Yehovah that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
[7] And Yehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.


[8] But Noah found grace in the eyes of Yehovah.


[9] These are the generations of Noah:


Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.


[10] And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.


[11] The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
[12] And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.


[13] And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.


[14] Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt you make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
[15] And this is the fashion which you shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
[16] A window shalt you make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt you finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt you set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt you make it.


[17] And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die.


[18] But with thee will I establish my covenant; and you shalt come into the ark, you, and your sons, and your wife, and your sons' wives with thee.


[19] And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt you bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.


[20] Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.


[21] And take you unto thee of all food that is eaten, and you shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.


[22] Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.



[1] And Yehovah said unto Noah, Come you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

[2] Of every clean beast you shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
[3] Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.


[4] For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.


[5] And Noah did according unto all that Yehovah commanded him.

[25] So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. [26] There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom you hast made to play therein.


Job 41  God talking

[1] Can you draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which you let down?
[2] Can you put a hook into his nose?

Or bore his jaw through with a thorn?
[3] Will he make many supplications unto you?

Will he speak soft words unto you?
[4] Will he make a covenant with thee? Wilt you take him for a servant forever?
[5] Will you play with him as with a bird?

Or will you bind him for your maidens?
[6] Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?
[7] Can you fill his skin with barbed iron?

Or his head with fish spears?
[8] Lay your hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.
[9] Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?
[10] None is so fierce that dare stir him up:

Who then is able to stand before me God says?.



[1] In that day Yehovah with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.



[1] And Yehovah spoke unto Moses and to Aaron, saying unto them,
2] Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, These are the beasts which you shall eat among all the beasts that are on the earth.
[3] Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the beasts, that shall you eat.
4] Nevertheless these shall you not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the hoof: as the camel, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[5] And the coney, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[6] And the hare, because he cheweth the cud, but divideth not the hoof; he is unclean unto you.
[7] And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you.
[8] Of their flesh shall you not eat, and their carcase shall you not touch; they are unclean to you.
[9] These shall you eat of all that are in the waters: whatsoever hath fins and scales in the waters, in the seas, and in the rivers, them shall you eat.

[10] And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you:
11] They shall be even an abomination unto you; you shall not eat of their flesh, but you shall have their carcases in abomination.

[12] Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you.
13] And these are they which you shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
14] And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
15] Every raven after his kind;
16] And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
17] And the little owl, and the cormorant, and the great owl,
18] And the swan, and the pelican, and the gier eagle,
19] And the stork, the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.

[20] All fowls that creep, going upon all four, shall be an abomination unto you.
21] Yet these may you eat of every flying creeping thing that goes upon all four, which have legs above their feet, to leap withal upon the earth;

[22] Even these of them you may eat; the locust after his kind, and the bald locust after his kind, and the beetle after his kind, and the grasshopper after his kind.
23] But all other flying creeping things, which have four feet, shall be an abomination unto you.
[24] And for these you shall be unclean: whosoever touches the carcase of them shall be unclean until the even.
25] And whosoever bears ought of the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even.
26] The carcases of every beast which divids the hoof, and is not cloven-footed, nor chews the cud, are unclean unto you: every one that touches them shall be unclean.
27] And whatsoever goes upon his paws, among all manner of beasts that go on all four, those are unclean unto you: whoso touches their carcase shall be unclean until the even.
28] And he that bears the carcase of them shall wash his clothes, and be unclean until the even: they are unclean unto you.
29] These also shall be unclean unto you among the creeping things that creep upon the earth; the weasel, and the mouse, and the tortoise after his kind,
30] And the ferret, and the chameleon, and the lizard, and the snail, and the mole.
[31] These are unclean to you among all that creep: whosoever doth touch them, when they be dead, shall be unclean until the even.



[3] You shall not eat any abominable thing.
[4] These are the beasts which you shall eat: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
[5] The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
[6] And every beast that parts the hoof, and cleaves the cleft into two claws, and chews the cud among the beasts, that you shall eat.
7] Nevertheless these you shall not eat of them that chew the cud, or of them that divide the cloven hoof; as the camel, and the hare, and the coney: for they chew the cud, but divide not the hoof; therefore they are unclean unto you.
[8] And the swine, because it divides the hoof, yet chews not the cud, it is unclean unto you: you shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcase.

[9] These you shall eat of all that are in the waters: all that have fins and scales shall you eat:
10] And whatsoever hath not fins and scales you may not eat; it is unclean unto you.
11] Of all clean birds you shall eat.
12] But these are they of which you shall not eat: the eagle, and ossifrage, and the ospray,
13] And the glede, and the kite, and the vulture after his kind,
14] And every raven after his kind,
15] And the owl, and the night hawk, and the cuckow, and the hawk after his kind,
16] The little owl, and the great owl, and the swan,
17] And the pelican, and the gier eagle, and the cormorant,
18] And the stork, and the heron after her kind, and the lapwing, and the bat.
[19] And every creeping thing that flieth is unclean unto you: they shall not be eaten.


Other creatures:

Isa.6 [2] Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

Ezek 1:15[15] Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.


Rev.5 [11] And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands;
12] Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honor, and glory, and blessing. [13] And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sits upon the throne, and unto the Lamb forever and ever.



[1] After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter.
2] And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.
3] And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.
4] And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.
5] And out of the throne preceded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
6] And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.
7] And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.

[8] And the four beasts

had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying,

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

[9] And when those beasts give glory and honor and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who lives forever and ever,
10] The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
[11] You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for you have created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
