Numbers 15: (KJV)

37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,

38 Speak unto the children of Israel (man and woman), and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of Violet (blue):

39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.

 

Deuteronomy 22: (KJV)

5 The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

11 Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.

 

Exodus 19:

Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine:

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.

     

    In the Torah, God commands the Children of Israel to wear fringes at the corners of their clothes as a reminder of His commandments (mitzvot).

    • Numbers 15:38:
      "Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of blue on the fringe of each corner."[/lu]
    • Deuteronomy 22:12:
      "You shall make yourself twisted threads, on the four corners of your garment with which you cover yourself."

     

    1. The fringes must be on the border of your garment (Num. 15:38)
    2. The fringes must be put on the four corners (arba kanfot) of the garment (Deut. 22:12)
    3. The fringes must have one ribbon of tekhelet. (Deut. 22:12, Num. 15:38).
    4. The garment and fringes are not of "divers kinds" (Deut. 22:11)
    5. That when you look upon them you are to remember God commandments "to do them" to guard against the sin of unbelief that marked the spies (Num. 15:39-41)

     

    10 Commandments

    Exodus 20:

    And God spake all these words, saying,

    I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 

     

    Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

     

    Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

    And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

     

    Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

     

    Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

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

    10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord 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 the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

     

    12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

     

    13 Thou shalt not murder.

     

    14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

     

    15 Thou shalt not steal.

     

    16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

     

    17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

    Deuteronomy 5:

    29 O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

    30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.

    31 But as for thee, stand thou here by me, and I will speak unto thee all the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which thou shalt teach them, that they may do them in the land which I give them to possess it.

    32 Ye shall observe to do therefore as the יְהֹוָה your God hath commanded you: ye shall not turn aside to the right hand or to the left.

    33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the יְהֹוָה your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.

     

    Deuteronomy 6:

    1 Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the יְהֹוָה your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:

    2 That thou mightest fear the יְהֹוָה thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.

    3 Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the יְהֹוָה God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.

    4 Hear, O Israel: The יְהֹוָה our God is one יְהֹוָה:

    5 And thou shalt love the יְהֹוָה thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

    6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

    7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

    9 And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.

    10 And it shall be, when the יְהֹוָה thy God shall have brought thee into the land which he sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give thee great and goodly cities, which thou buildedst not,

    11  And houses full of all good things, which thou filledst not, and wells digged, which thou diggedst not, vineyards and olive trees, which thou plantedst not; when thou shalt have eaten and be full;

    12 Then beware lest thou forget the יְהֹוָה, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage.

     

    13 Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.

    14 Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you;

    15 (For the יְהֹוָה thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the יְהֹוָה thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.

    16 Ye shall not tempt the יְהֹוָה your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.

    17 Ye shall diligently keep the commandments of the יְהֹוָה your God, and his testimonies, and his statutes, which he hath commanded thee.

    18 And thou shalt do that which is right and good in the sight of the יְהֹוָה: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest go in and possess the good land which the יְהֹוָה sware unto thy fathers,

    19 To cast out all thine enemies from before thee, as the יְהֹוָה hath spoken.

    20 And when thy son asketh thee in time to come, saying, What mean the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, which the יְהֹוָה our God hath commanded you?

    21 Then thou shalt say unto thy son, We were Pharaoh's bondmen in Egypt; and the יְהֹוָה brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand:

    22 And the יְהֹוָה shewed signs and wonders, great and sore, upon Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his household, before our eyes:

    23 And he brought us out from thence, that he might bring us in, to give us the land which he sware unto our fathers.

    24 And the יְהֹוָה commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the יְהֹוָה our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

    25 And it shall be our righteousness, if we observe to do all these commandments before the יְהֹוָה our God, as he hath commanded us.

     

    Deuteronomy 11:

    13 And it shall come to pass, if ye shall hearken diligently unto my commandments which I command you this day, to love the Lord your God, and to serve him with all your heart and with all your soul,

    14 That I will give you the rain of your land in his due season, the first rain and the latter rain, that thou mayest gather in thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil.

    15 And I will send grass in thy fields for thy cattle, that thou mayest eat and be full.

    16 Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them;

    17 And then the Lord's wrath be kindled against you, and he shut up the heaven, that there be no rain, and that the land yield not her fruit; and lest ye perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you.

    18 Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.

    19 And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

    20 And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates:

    (וּכְתַבְתָּם עַל ־ מְזוּזֹות בֵּיתֶךָ וּבִשְׁעָרֶֽיךָ׃)

    FRINGES & TAKAYLETH RIBBON

    The Law Requiring the Children of Yisrael to wear fringes & takayleth (Tyrian Purple from a Snail) ribbon:

    Please read the law below carefully, some believe women are not required to wear fringes & ribbon because they follow the Jewish Tradition when it comes to this law, but if you read carefully, it says “Children of Israel” not only men.

    Numbers.15:[37] And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying, [38] Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of takayleth (violet): [9] And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of YHWH, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: [40] That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your Elohim.

    Violet or Blue Ribbon?

    In Numbers 15:38, the Hebrew word “Tekayleth” was translated in the KJV to mean blue, however, the “Tekayleth” means violet in Hebrew, not blue. Tyrian Purple was the most expensive dye in the ancient world and even still is today.  Only Kings & the Filthy rich could afford to dye their garments this color.  It was so expensive most could only afford to dye the trim of their garments Tyrian purple.  It only makes sense that Yahweh would command the children of Israel to dye the trim of their garments Tyrian purple.  Israelites were royalty.  A nation of Kings, Priests, & Prophets.

    According to …http://www.webexhibits.org/pigments/intro/blues3.html

    “Choosing the color of one’s garments in Middle Ages before the advent of synthetic dyes, was more a question of money than a question of taste. Unlike other rare and expensive colors such as purle, blue color was readily available.”

    BLUE – A color that was not a color for Kings.  You could get blue from plants or even human urine.

    “The most important blue dye was the indigo or the somewhat less intense and locally available woad. Manufacture of the dye involved fermenting the woad leaves with human urine.”

    Why would Yahweh want a Pissy Blue on the borders of the Children of Israel’s garment if it was obtained from human urine?  The Royal color is Violet/ Purple not blue.  Good news, because Tekaleth means Violet in Hebrew.  It’s color is from the snail.  Strangely enough, the fake Jews want you to believe the Border or Ribbon was blue so much so it can stay inline with their Talmud, the oral book from Moses passed down to them according to their word, that they found a rare species of snail that still gives a purple dye, but when exposed to the sun is an Indigo blue.  They want you to believe that instead of using the rare purple to dye your border which was hard to find and very expensive, that instead Israelites took the rare purple and put it in the sun to change it from purple to blue.  The same shade of blue that you get from human piss or from plants which were inexpensive and not royal at all.  Anyone could mislead you if color was blue and say they used Tekaleth dye if that was the case.  But you can’t fool anyone with fake Tyrian Purple.  This color is so beautiful that the modern computer screens can’t accurately show you the color. You need to see it from yourself. But it will cost you.  I found a place selling  25mg for $107.  I don’t know if that would even make enough trim to dye borders for one garment.  This is how I know the true color to be violet. Don’t let them deceive you.  Ask questions and if their is confusion in their answer and it doesn’t sit right. Don’t believe it.

    “Manufacture of the dye involved fermenting the woad leaves with human urine. The fermentation is facilitated by the presence of alkohol in the mixture. The usual method for the dyers was to drink alkohol and use their alkohol enriched urine for the fermentation process. Pieces of fabric were immersed in the woad bath usually on sundays for at least 12 hours. The blue color became visible after a prolonged contact of the fabric with air. Drunken dyers lying around hanging fabric on mondays gave rise to colloquial german expressions such as “Blauer Montag” (blue monday = stay away from work on monday) and “Blau werden” (get blue = get drunk).”

    Why does the KJV use blue? It’s possible that the translators were influenced by the Talmud which says that the ribbon was blue. Are you confused now? If you don’t believe the Talmud & don’t trust the Translators of the KJV, then you should choose Violet Ribbon. If you believe the Talmud and trust the translators, then choose blue. Yah knows your heart if you truly are being obedient to him, instead of following man.

    Deuteronomy 22: [12] Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.

     

    ANCIENT YISRAELITES WEARING FRINGES & TAKAYLETH (violet) ribbon

     

    Notice the hem of the garments & throughout are fringes & ribbon (probably takayleth)

     

     

    This is a detail of an alabaster frieze found at an Assyrian palace from the 7th Century B.C. Examine how the Israelites wore their fringes around the borders (hem) of their garments.

     

    This stone relief is dated about 830 B.C. it shows the Israelite King Jehu bowing to King Shalmanser the 3rd. Notice how Jehu’s fringes are around the hem of his garment. Even the Assyrians wore their fringes similar to the Israelites. This is because people who were royal wore fringes. The more fringes you had, the better you looked was the train of thought.

    Some Hebrew Yisraelite will wear fringes & ribbon according to the way the ancient’s wore them.

    WOMEN CAN’T WEAR MEN’S CLOTHING & MEN CAN’T WEAR WOMEN’S CLOTHING

     

    Deut.22:[5] The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto YHWH thy Elohim.

     

     

    DEBATES, DISAGREEMENTS & DIFFERENCES AMONG HEBREW YISRALITES:

     

    • Some Hebrew Yisraelites believe woman can not wear pants because pants pertains to a woman.
    • Some Hebrew Yisraelites believe pants are ok for woman as long as it doesn’t look like men’s pants. You will even find communities that approve women wearing pants, but the pants can not have a zipper on the front, & the pants may even be seen with fringes to make a distinction from men’s pants.

     

    The Deut. 22:5 law, doesn’t say a woman can or can’t wear pants.  This is a fact, no one wore pants in ancient times. The rest comes from interpretation of the scriptures.

     

    Everyone agree’s a woman can’t dress like a man, & a man can’t dress like a woman.

     

    100% NATURAL FABRIC FOR CLOTHING

    Deut.22: Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woollen and linen together.

    Lev.19:Ye shall keep my statutes. Thou shalt not let thy cattle gender with a diverse kind: thou shalt not sow thy field with mingled seed: neither shall a garment mingled of linen and woollen come upon thee.

     

    DEBATES, DISAGREEMENTS & DIFFERENCES AMONG HEBREW YISRALITES:

    Most Hebrew Yisraelite believe that this law is saying you can not mix any fabric which include wool & linen.  YHWH has many laws disapproval mixing of many things,

    Lev.19:19 do not mix cattle, do not mix seeds & Deut 22: do not plow ox with a donkey. Yet, I even heard someone disagree that Deut. 22:11 is only speaking about wool & linen if you read it in the Hebrew & not speaking about mixing fabrics.

    HebrewGarments.com makes clothes using this non mixing guideline.  This is rare now as most seamstresses will sew linen garments using only cotton or polyester thread without even giving you options to use linen thread.  If you want a true Set-apart (holy) apparel, Hebrew Garments.com will take care of you

    Which brings me back to…

    What is Strange Apparel for Hebrew Yisraelites?

    Now that you know the law pertaining to clothing.

     

    • It is strange for a Hebrew Yisraelite not to have fringes & Tekayleth borders on their garment.
    • It is strange for a Hebrew Yisraelite to wear linen & wool mixed together.
    •  It is very strange for a Hebrew Yisraelite to wear transvestite garments; such asr a man to wearing an article of clothing that clearly should be on a woman & for woman to wear a manly garment that clearly should be on a man.
    • It is strange for a Hebrew Yisraelite to look like he is a Roman, or Egyptian or Scottish or Babylonian or American!  A Hebrew Yisraelite who keeps the covenant of YHWH, wants to embrace his culture & he or she is ok to stand out because they know they are special & set-apart for YHWH.

     

    Zephaniah 1:

    8 And it shall come to pass in the day of YHWH’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

     

    We are not to follow the other nations, we have our own traditions, laws & ways of YHWH of obeying YHWH.  Many Hebrew Yisraelites newly to the faith will look like they are American or from whatever country the live in.  However, those who are seasoned in the word, tend to embrace their culture & wear Hebrew looking garments as instructed in the law.

    1 Esdras 4:

    13 Then the third, who had spoken of women, and of the truth, (this was Zorobabel) began to speak. 

    14 O ye men, it is not the great king, nor the multitude of men, neither is it wine, that excelleth; who is it then that ruleth them, or hath the lordship over them? are they not women? 

    15 Women have borne the king and all the people that bear rule by sea and land. 

    16 Even of them came they: and they nourished them up that planted the vineyards, from whence the wine cometh. 

    17 These also make garments for men; these bring glory unto men; and without women cannot men be. 

    18 Yea, and if men have gathered together gold and silver, or any other goodly thing, do they not love a woman which is comely in favour and beauty? 

    19 And letting all those things go, do they not gape, and even with open mouth fix their eyes fast on her; and have not all men more desire unto her than unto silver or gold, or any goodly thing whatsoever? 

    20 A man leaveth his own father that brought him up, and his own country, and cleaveth unto his wife. 

    21 He sticketh not to spend his life with his wife. and remembereth neither father, nor mother, nor country. 

    22 By this also ye must know that women have dominion over you: do ye not labour and toil, and give and bring all to the woman? 

    23 Yea, a man taketh his sword, and goeth his way to rob and to steal, to sail upon the sea and upon rivers; 

    24 And looketh upon a lion, and goeth in the darkness; and when he hath stolen, spoiled, and robbed, he bringeth it to his love. 

    25 Wherefore a man loveth his wife better than father or mother. 

    26 Yea, many there be that have run out of their wits for women, and become servants for their sakes. 

    27 Many also have perished, have erred, and sinned, for women. 

    28 And now do ye not believe me? is not the king great in his power? do not all regions fear to touch him? 

    29 Yet did I see him and Apame the king's concubine, the daughter of the admirable Bartacus, sitting at the right hand of the king, 

    30 And taking the crown from the king's head, and setting it upon her own head; she also struck the king with her left hand. 

    31 And yet for all this the king gaped and gazed upon her with open mouth: if she laughed upon him, he laughed also: but if she took any displeasure at him, the king was fain to flatter, that she might be reconciled to him again. 

    32 O ye men, how can it be but women should be strong, seeing they do thus? 

    33 Then the king and the princes looked one upon another: so he began to speak of the truth. 

    34 O ye men, are not women strong? great is the earth, high is the heaven, swift is the sun in his course, for he compasseth the heavens round about, and fetcheth his course again to his own place in one day. 

    35 Is he not great that maketh these things? therefore great is the truth, and stronger than all things. 

    36 All the earth crieth upon the truth, and the heaven blesseth it: all works shake and tremble at it, and with it is no unrighteous thing. 

    37 Wine is wicked, the king is wicked, women are wicked, all the children of men are wicked, and such are all their wicked works; and there is no truth in them; in their unrighteousness also they shall perish. 

    38 As for the truth, it endureth, and is Always strong; it liveth and conquereth for evermore. 

    39 With her there is no accepting of persons or rewards; but she doeth the things that are just, and refraineth from all unjust and wicked things; and all men do well like of her works. 

    40 Neither in her judgment is any unrighteousness; and she is the strength, kingdom, power, and majesty, of all ages. Blessed be the God of truth.
