HEBREW LIVING LETTER ™ - KOOF – EMANATION OF HOLINESS
“I cry out with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord! I will keep Your statutes. I cry out to You; Save me, and I will keep Your testimonies. I rise before the dawning of the morning, and cry for help; I hope in Your word. My eyes are awake through the night watches, that I may meditate on Your word. Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O Lord, revive me according to Your justice. They draw near who follow after wickedness; They are far from Your law. You are near, O Lord, and all Your commandments are truth. Concerning Your testimonies, I have known of old that You have founded them forever.” (Psalms 119:145-152 NKJV).
KOOF, KUF, or QOPH (ק) is the nineteenth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet. It has the numerical value of 100. The way that the letter KOOF (ק) is drawn agrees with its meaning: the back of the head. The ancient Hebrew pictograph of the back of the head symbolizes what is behind, what is last, what is final, and what is least.
Two Hebrew Living Letters ™ – REYSH (ר) and ZAYIN (ז) – combine to form the letter KOOF. ZAYIN is to the left and descends below the line while REYSH is to the right and hovers above it. The paradoxical union symbolized by these two components of KOOF is the secret of “there is none holy as God” (1 Samuel 2:2). KOOF (ק) conveys the message that God is supremely exalted and holy. Therefore, KOOF stands for kedushah – holiness. The descending ZAYIN of the letter KOOF symbolizes His Presence being grasped in all worlds. Together, REYSH and ZAYIN spells the Hebrew word “raz” – a mystery. “And without controversy GREAT IS THE MYSTERY OF GODLINESS: was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory” (1 Timothy 3:16 NKJV).
Of all the letters of the Hebrew Alphabet, KOOF is symbolically the lowest. Therefore, KOOF signifies the emulation of holiness on earth. “Honor and majesty are before Him; Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary. Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples, Give to the Lord glory and strength. Give to the Lord the glory due His name; Bring an offering, and come into His courts. Oh, worship the Lord in the BEAUTY OF HOLINESS! Tremble before Him, all the earth. Say among the nations, ‘The Lord reigns; The world also is firmly established, It shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously.’ Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; Let the sea roar, and all its fullness; Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord. For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth. He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth” (Psalms 96:6-13 NKJV).
“And be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:23-24 NKJV).
“PURSUE peace with all people, and HOLINESS, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled” (Hebrews 12:14-15 NKJV).
When the letter KOOF precedes the letter TZADIK, the Hebrew word “keitz” is formed, which means the “end” of time. This hints at the verse: “He has set an end [keitz] to darkness, and searches out all perfection” (Job 28:3). The “end,” as in the coming of the Messiah and the subsequent era of resurrection, is the ultimate revelation of the great light and latent energy present within the secret of the Hebrew Living Letter ™ KOOF (ק). It is not merely a coincidence that the Hebrew word for “east” is connected to KOOF too. “For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27 NKJV).
KOOF (ק) is equivalent to 100. The number 100 is the perfection of a 10 x 10 square. 100 is the numerical value for “promise” due to Abraham was 100 years old when Sarah gave birth to his son of promise – Isaac. 100 is also said to be the life span of an eagle.
