“Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path. I have sworn and confirmed That I will keep Your righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much; Revive me, O Lord, according to Your word” (Psalms 119:105-107 NKJV).

NUN OR NOON (נ‎) is the fourteenth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet. It has the numerical value of 50. Some say that the ancient pictograph for NUN looks like a fish, and it symbolizes the motion of a fish, like action or life. Others say that the ancient pictograph for NUN looks kind of like a seed, and it is shaped in the form of a bent-over vessel or a bent-over servant.

According to the Hebrew Sages, NUN is said to represent both faithfulness and the reward of faithfulness. Moses is known as a preeminent humble servant of the LORD. The word NUN is spelled NUN-VAV-NUN (נ‎ נ ו). Rashi says the spelling of NUN (נ‎ נ ו) suggests that the one who is humble before God will stand upright in the final day. What this means in our present life is that a “tzaddik” (righteous person) will simultaneously affirm “I am nothing but dust” and “the world itself was made for my sake.” “Humble yourself in the sight of the LORD, and He will lift you up” (James 4:10).

In Aramaic, the word NUN means “fish,” which is a symbol of activity and life. The first mention of the word “nun” is in Exodus 33:11 in reference to Joshua: “And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he turned again into the camp; but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle.” Not only did Joshua spend His time in the presence of the Lord, but he was one of the two witnesses to give a good report that they could overcome the giants in the land. Joshua was personally trained by Moses and succeeded him. Joshua was able to enter the Promise Land as the Son of Life. This is a clear picture of Messiah Yeshua. Early Christian roots reveal the symbol of the fish as an emblem of the Messiah. The word for “fish” in Greek is “ixthus,” which some believe was an acronym for the Greek phrase “Yesous Christos Theou Uios Soter” – Jesus Christ the Son of God Savior.

NUN is 14 being the fourteenth letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, which is equivalent to the name “David” – the forefather of the Eternal Kingdom of Is-real. David’s heir is Mashiach ben David whose name is eternal: “May his name be eternal; while the sun lasts, may his name endure; let men invoke his blessedness upon themselves; let all nations count him happy” (Psalms 72:17).

Hebrew Sages teach that one of the names of Mashiach (i.e., Messiah or Christ) is Yinon (“shall rule”) and may be read as “may His Name Nun (propagate).” Ultimately, the destiny of Mashiach and His generation is “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of God, like waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9). “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this” (Isaiah 9:6-7 NKJV).

“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the EVERLASTING KINGDOM OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST” (II Peter 1:2-11 NKJV).

NUN OR NOON (נ‎) is equivalent to the number 50, which is the number for jubilee, freedom, and fullness of life. There were 50 years from the Exodus from Egypt to the giving of the Torah (Word of God) on Mount Sinai. This corresponds to the 50 days of the Counting of the Omer, which reckons the time from Passover culminates at Pentecost (50). There are also 50 references to the Exodus in the first five books of the Bible (i.e., Torah). The Bible reveals that 50 years is a Jubilee Year – Yovel – And you shall count seven sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years. Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field” (Leviticus 25:8-12 NKJV).
