The Mystery Of These


One House For All Of These

There are two relevant words 'these' in this week's Torah portion in chapter 6.

These are the heads of their fathers' houses (the sons of Reuben, the first born of Israel) ... Shemot 6:14 (contains feminine phrasing - 'beit') אֵלֶּה, רָאשֵׁי בֵית-אֲבֹתָם

These are the heads of the fathers' houses of the Levites (according to their families) ... Shemot 6:25 (contains masculine phrasing - 'levi'im') אֵלֶּה, רָאשֵׁי אֲבוֹת הַלְוִיִּם

There is only one word 'these' (spoken as 'this') in the error with the golden calf:

and they said: 'This ..' (is your God) Shemot 32:4

Hands Of Leadership

The three words 'these' (each written אֵלֶּה) are a triform of Goddess, the Divine Feminine (as opposed to the Divine Masculine). She as opposed to He. These as opposed to this. Through these three (free will state of consciousness) is revealed the correct one (omniscient state of consciousness).

Root Of Revelation

The word 'these' (אֵלֶּה) in Hebrew is written with a dagesh in the lamed (לּ), indicating that the shoresh (root) of the word contains two letters lamed (ל). Dr. Meshullam Klarberg writes in discussion of a word containing a lamed with a dagesh (dot in the middle):
As Rashi (above) points out, searching for the root can help in the interpretation of a word. However care must be taken not to find a wrong root.

Indeed. We can understand then that, in addition to identifying the wrong leader, the error of the golden calf (which led to identification of the wrong leader) was to identify the wrong shoresh. The shoresh of אלה is not אלל (obstruct development), it is הלל (reveal Divinity), with a leading letter hei (ה, the source of all the letters) as opposed to a leading letter aleph (א).
