The Abyss of Words: Noise, fermenting, clamor

The Earth has become a chaotic one of himself, and a pure one of himself and a darkness is upon the faces of an abyss/uproar, and the spirit of mighty ones is she-who-hovers upon the faces of the Dual-Water.

Genesis 1:2

Strong’s #8415, tehom. Abyss. The Depths. Noisy, agitated, roaring. From a primitive root #1949 hum (compare hamam); to make an uproar, or agitate greatly. A mysterious, cryptic word, with clues from Gen. 7:11 “abundant/many uproar” and Gen. 49:25, “upon the kneeled-ones of the abyss, she-who-lies-stretched-out underneath”.


The abyss symbolizes a state of directionless, chaos, emptiness, confusion, and inaccessible mystery. The present Bible in all of its translation and tradition, the sects, orthodoxies, denominations, and doctrines are just such an experience. The bias of the flesh takes the reader not up, but down into an abyss. It is the depths of the pit, of hell, of sheol, of death. Every “wave of teaching” tosses a reader around endlessly.

It is the misery of Job who is lost before his friends who think they can help, but say nothing right. When he finally ceases to speak, meaning the word is no longer in his mouth because he has completely given up trying to understand—then his eyes are opened, and he sees.


“…and everyone of God-is-Straight is causing to blast a great war-blast, and the Earth is in a uproar/upheaval [tehom].” 1 Sam. 4:5 RBT

She baits you, conceives you as a “sinner”, tests and tempts you, and, when full grown, brings you death.
