The TorahBecause that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge [mishmereth], my commandments [mitsvah], my statutes [chuqqah], and my laws [Torah]. Gen 26:5
Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish aught from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you, Deuteronomy 4:2For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not destroyed. Malachi 3:6 This law will never change. I am the LORD! Leviticus 7:36 [CEV]
In spite of what jews' claim, The Holy Bible shows us that the Torah [read: God's Law] is the first five books. As we know, the Holy Bible was written by, for, and about the House of Israel, and not the House of Judah, and certainly not "jews". The Torah is exactly what Jeremiah brought from Israel to Ireland in 587 BC, and what the Hill of Torah in County Meath, Ireland stands for.
Jeremiah also brought with him the Ark of the Covenant, King Zedekiah's daughter Tia Tephi, David's Harp, and other valuables referred to in the Book of Jeremiah. But the KJV translators, in direct violation of God's command to not change His Word, changed 219 references to Torah in the Old Testament and 197 references to "nomos" in the New Testament, to "the law", obscuring these direct, specific references to the first five books of the Holy Bible. The Hill of Torah stands today in County Meath, Ireland as proof positive of his journey from Israel to Ireland, though it has been renamed "Hill of Tara" in order to mask the truth of his accomplishments.
Merriam Webster Dictionary tells us that the Torah is:
Encyclopedia Britannica provides the following misleading and Scripturally inaccurate definition, excluding all references to Israelites and substituting the phrase "jewish people":
We have also been told that it took 40 days and forty nights for Moses to receive only the Ten Commandments, when in reality the Holy Bible illustrates that it was "a law, and commandments", where "law" was originally "Torah", proving that Moses received all of the Torah from God, not just Ten Commandments:
Exo 24:12 And the LORD said to Moses, Come up to me on the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayst teach them. Exo 24:13 And Moses rose up, and his minister Joshua: and Moses went up upon the mount of God. Exo 24:14 And he said to the elders, Tarry ye here for us, until we come again to you: and behold, Aaron and Hur are with you: if any man hath any matters to do, let him come to them. Exo 24:15 And Moses went up upon the mount, and a cloud covered the mount. Exo 24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called to Moses from the midst of the cloud. Exo 24:17 And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount, in the eyes of the children of Israel.
In addition to 219 references to The Torah in the Old Testament are the statutes, translated from the 231 occurrences of the Hebrew words "choq" [Strong's #2706] or "chuqqah" [Strong's #2708], 839 references to the words "command" or "commandment", 494 of which are translated from the Hebrew word "tsavah" [Strong's #6680], 181 of which are translated from the Hebrew word "mitsvah" [Strong's #4687], and 25 of which (usually when it's a reference to YHWH) are translated from the 5307 occurrences of the Hebrew word "amar" [Strong's #559], and 417 references to "mishpat" [Strong's #4941] which are translated as "judgments", "manner", "ordinances", and "customs", for a total of 1,706 references to The Torah, command and commandments, statutes, charges, and judgments.
Within The Torah or Pentateuch [read: the first five books of the Holy Bible], the word "Torah" itself appears 52 times, the word "command" appears 286 times, the word "statute" appears 75 times, the word "charge" appears 60 times, and the word "judgment" appears 62 times, for a total of 535 references to Torah, command and commandments, statutes, charges, and judgments.
So when the KJV translators wrote that Christ said "Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fully preach", this reference to "the law" must be a direct reference to The Torah which Christ knew Jeremiah brought to Ireland 583 years before His birth. All 197 instances in the New Testament of the Greek word "nomos" are translated as "law" rather than "Torah", though, concealing this direct reference and all other references in the Holy Bible to the most powerful creation of God and mankind, the Torah:
From a primary word ?eï¿½ï¿½? nemoï¿½ (to parcel out, especially food or grazing to animals); law (through the idea of prescriptive usage), generally (regulation), specifically (of Moses [including the volume]; also of the Gospel), or figuratively (a principle): - law.
Jeremiah makes 12 different references to The Torah when he warned the Israelites that their failure to enforce God's Law would result in their destruction or removal from the land, and not in one writing did he even hint that the Torah handed to Moses by God ought to be modified:
Jer 2:8 The priests said not, Where is the LORD? and they that handle the law knew me not: the pastors also transgressed against me, and the prophets prophesied by Baal, and walked after things that do not profit. Jer 6:19 Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it. Jer 8:8 How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us? Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain. Jer 9:13 And the LORD saith, Because they have forsaken my law which I set before them, and have not obeyed my voice, neither walked therein; Jer 16:11 Then shalt thou say unto them, Because your fathers have forsaken me, saith the LORD, and have walked after other gods, and have served them, and have worshiped them, and have forsaken me, and have not kept my law; Jer 18:18 Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words. Jer 26:4 And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the LORD; If ye will not hearken to me, to walk in my law, which I have set before you, Jer 31:33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people. Jer 32:11 So I took the evidence of the purchase, both that which was sealed according to the law and custom, and that which was open: Jer 32:23 And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them: Jer 44:10 They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers. Jer 44:23 Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the LORD, and have not obeyed the voice of the LORD, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.
Jeremiah's warnings were never heeded, so the Assyrians killed and enslaved hundreds of thousands of Israelites, King Zedekiah's sons were killed before his eyes just before his eyes were put out, he died in captivity in Assyria, and the House of Israel no longer occupied Israel, requiring a new covenant with the House of Israel. Just like those arrogant, ignorant, and stubborn Israelites, there was a time in this putative Christian nation when The Torah or at least its precepts were upheld--a time of vast achievements and social stability. But those days are long gone, the opportunity to restore them is disappearing quickly each day, and our captivity by a foreign power is quickly becoming a real probability.
That was when murder laws were upheld and our murder rate was less than a tenth of what it is today, but now a third of our murderers are never even prosecuted and we have the third highest murder rate in the world. It was when our laws against adultery [actually "covet thy kinsman's wife" in the Holy Bible] were upheld, our divorce rate was a fiftieth of what it is now, illegitimacy was a tenth, and before 40 million Israelite children of God were murdered in the womb by "abortion". Now feminists brag that 70% of American women commit adultery within five years of marriage, and one out of every three children born to intact families are not even the biological offspring of the husband. It was when our laws against sodomy were upheld but now this crime against humanity, sin against God, and violation of our boys' most intimate privacy is viewed as a civil right, which permitted 80,000 American high school boys to be raped by sodomites with impunity. It was before we displaced God's Law with Talmudic principles and precepts which increased our prison population 20 fold and imposed the world's highest incarceration rate on a naive but unwilling public, making American men a third of all the men in the world who are behind bars.
It was when 28 cents of each wage dollar was deposited in Personal Savings and government cost only 1 1/2 cents, but now we have a NEGATIVE 2% Personal Savings rate and government costs 43 cents. It was when we manufactured two out of every three cars in the world, but now the Japanese do, and less than one out of six are built in America. It was when Israelites owned black slaves, but now those former slaves require Israelite men to work 43 days every year JUST to earn JUST the money which is paid JUST for taxes to support JUST welfare which is paid JUST to the descendants of those former slaves.
Christ also never suggested changing even one tittle of the Torah:
Lev 3:17 No Israelite may eat any fat or any blood; this is a rule to be kept forever by all Israelites wherever they live.Lev 7:36 This law will never change. I am the LORD!
Deuteronomy 7:3 neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son. Ezra 9:2 For they have taken of their daughters for themselves, and for their sons: so that the holy seed have mingled themselves with the people of those lands: yea, the hand of the princes and rulers hath been chief in this trespass.Nehemiah 9:2 And the seed of Israel separated themselves from all foreigners, and stood and confessed their sins, and the iniquities of their fathers. Exodus 12:38 And also a mixed multitude went up with them, and flocks, and herds, very many livestock.
Nehemiah 13:3 Now it came to pass, when they had heard the law, that they separated from Israel all the mixed multitude.Jer 25:20-21 And all the mixed people, And all the kings of the land of Uz, And all the kings of the land of the Philistines, And Ashkelon, and Gazzah, and Ekron, And the remnant of Ashdod, Edom, and Moab, and the sons of Ammon, Jer 25:24-25 And all the kings of Arabia, And all the kings of the mixed people, Who are dwelling in the wilderness, And all the kings of Zimri, And all the kings of Elam, And all the kings of Media, Eze 30:5 Cush, and Phut, and Lud, and all the mixture, and Chub, And the sons of the land of the covenant with them by sword do fall,

These were probably miscellaneous hangers-on to the Hebrews, whether Egyptians of the lower orders, or the remains of the Hyksos (see EGYPT; MOSES), as some think. The same thing happened on the return of the Jews from Babylon (Neh_13:3), a "mixed multitude" accompanied them so far.Deuteronomy 23:2 A mamzer shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD.Deuteronomy 23:3 An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the LORD forever: Strong's Lexicon -- Hebrew Word mamzer 4464 means mongrel mam-zare' from an unused root meaning to alienate; a mongrelDictionary.com -- mamzer - \Mam"zer\, n.

Text: Synonyms HYBRID, bastard, cross, crossbred, crossbreed, half blood, half-breed, mule
Oxford English At the time that the KJV translation was published, a bastard was a "mongrel, hybrid, or inferior breed" thus a bastard at that time was the offspring of mixed race parents, or a product of miscegenation.
Easton's Bible Dictionary Bastard means Mongrel In the Old Testament the rendering of the Hebrew word 'mamzer'', which means "polluted." In Deu_23:2, it occurs in the ordinary sense of illegitimate offspring. In Zec_9:6, the word is used in the sense of foreigner. From the history of Jephthah we learn that there were bastard offspring among the Jews (Jdg_11:1-7). In Heb_12:8, the word (Gr. nothoi) is used in its ordinary sense, and denotes those who do not share the privileges of God's children.
Comprehensive Lexicon Bastard meant mongrel prior to the mid-19th century -- A Comprehensive Lexicon by John Pickering (1847), for the noun moichidios: "bastard, spurious." This Greek word should correctly be translated as mongrel, and a true understanding of the English language reveals that when Pickering, in 1847, used the word bastard, he too meant a mongrel.International Standard Bible Encyclopedia The bastard race in Zechariah is a mixed population -- basï¿½tard In Deu_23:2 probably the offspring of an incestuous union, or of a marriage within the prohibited degrees of affinity (Lev_18:6-20; Lev_20:10-21). He and his descendants to the tenth generation are excluded from the assembly of the Lord. [editor's note: the correct phraseology is "even to the tenth generation", stressing the fact that this prohibition was forever, not that The Torah changed after ten generations, as the ISB suggests].

Then said they to him, We be not born of miscegenation; we have one ancestry, God [of Abraham]. Joh 8:39-41
Has there ever been a more colossal failure of a nation of Israelites to follow The Torah than this? Would we have made such a huge mistake if the word "Torah" had been used in place of the word "law"?
