Numbers chapter 15 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying, Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, and bid them that they make them (360° tick-mark) fringes in the borders of their (black prayer shawl) garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the (360° tick mark) fringe of the borders a (blue radius) ribband of blue: And it shall be unto you for a (360° tick mark) fringe, that ye may (lunar eyeballs) look upon it (blue radius border), and remember all the (blue radius) commandments of the Lord, and do them ; and that ye seek not after your own (solar burning) heart and your own (lunar) eyes, after which ye use to go a (Gemini) whoring: That ye may remember, and do all my (blue radius) (360°) commandments, and be holy (separate) unto your (Shekinah) God" (15:37-40) is a full 360° border. But most prayer shawls today only have two opposing sides with blue ribbons and fringes. Not all the way around. Further, they are made of mixed fabrics (cotton, wool, silk, acrylic) and, most astonishing of all, many do not even have a blue ribbon on the tallit itself. Make your own the right way.

 


Our Lives Unravel at the Edges Without God's
Blue Ribbon Commandments

15:1 And the (Shekinah) Lord (blue radius) spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you,

3 And will make an offering by (solar) fire unto the (Shekinah) Lord, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the Lord, of the (Taurus) herd or of the (Aries) flock:

4 Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the Lord bring a meat (Meal) offering of a tenth deal of (lunar) flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of (solar golden) oil.

5 And the fourth part of an hin of (solar) wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the (solar) burnt offering or sacrifice, for one (Aries) lamb.

6 Or for a ram (Aries), thou shalt prepare for a meat (Meal) offering two tenth deals of (lunar) flour mingled with the third part of an hin of (solar) oil.

7 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of an hin of (solar) wine, for a sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

8 And when thou preparest a (Taurus) bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the (Shekinah) Lord:

9 Then shall he bring with a (Taurus) bullock a meat (Meal) offering of three tenth deals of (lunar) flour mingled with half an hin of (solar) oil.

10 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of (solar) wine, for an offering made by (solar) fire, of a sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

11 Thus shall it be done for one (Taurus) bullock, or for one (Aries) ram, or for a (Aries) lamb, or a (Taurus) kid.

12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number.

13 All that are born of the country shall do these things after this manner, in offering an offering made by (solar) fire, of a sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

14 And if a stranger sojourn with you, or whosoever be among you in your generations, and will offer an offering made by (solar) fire, of a sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord; as ye do, so he shall do.

15 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the (Shekinah) Lord.

16 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the (Ophiuchus) stranger that sojourneth with you.

17 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

18 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land whither I bring you,

19 Then it shall be, that, when ye eat of the (solar golden) bread of the land, ye shall offer up an heave offering unto the (Shekinah) Lord.

20 Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your (lunar) dough for an heave offering: as ye do the heave offering of the threshingfloor, so shall ye heave it.

21 Of the first of your (lunar) dough ye shall give unto the Lord an heave offering in your generations.

22 And if ye have erred, and not observed all these commandments, which the (Shekinah) Lord hath (blue radius) spoken unto (Ophiuchus) Moses,

23 Even all that the (Shekinah) Lord hath (blue radius) commanded you by the hand of (Castor) Moses, from the day that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses, and henceforward among your generations;

24 Then it shall be, if ought be committed by ignorance without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall offer one young (Taurus) bullock for a (solar) burnt offering, for a sweet savour unto the (Shekinah) Lord, with his meat (Meal) offering, and his drink offering, according to the manner, and one (Taurus) kid of the goats for a sin offering.

25 And the (Hercules) priest shall make an atonement for all the congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and it shall be forgiven them; for it is ignorance: and they shall bring their offering, a sacrifice made by (solar) fire unto the (Shekinah) Lord, and their sin offering before the (Shekinah) Lord, for their ignorance:

26 And it shall be forgiven all the congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel, and the (Ophiuchus) stranger that sojourneth among them; (lunar eyes) seeing all the (Gemini) people were in ignorance.

27 And if any soul sin through ignorance, then he shall bring a (Taurus) she goat of the first year for a sin offering.

28 And the (Hercules) priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the (Shekinah) Lord, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.

29 Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the (Gemini) children of Israel, and for the (Ophiuchus) stranger that sojourneth among them.

30 But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the (Shekinah) Lord; and that soul shall be (Perseus) cut off from among his (Gemini) people.

31 Because he hath despised the (blue radius) word of the (Shekinah) Lord, and hath broken his (blue radius) commandment, that soul shall utterly be (Perseus) cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.

32 And while the (Gemini) children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man (Ophiuchus) that gathered sticks upon the sabbath day.

33 And they that found him gathering sticks brought him unto (Ophiuchus) Moses and (Hercules) Aaron, and unto all the congregation.

34 And they put him in ward, because it was not declared what should be done to him.

35 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, The man shall be surely put to death: all the congregation shall (lunar) stone him with (lunar) stones without the camp.

36 And all the congregation brought him without the camp, and (lunar) stoned him with (lunar) stones, and he died; as the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Moses.

37 And the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

38 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, and bid them that they make them (360 tick-mark) fringes in the borders of their (black prayer shawl) garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the (360 tick mark) fringe of the borders a (blue radius) ribband of blue:

39 And it shall be unto you for a (360 tick mark) fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the (blue radius) commandments of the Lord, and do them ; and that ye seek not after your own (solar) heart and your own (lunar) eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:

40 That ye may remember, and do all my (blue radius) commandments, and be holy unto your (Shekinah) God.

41 I am the Lord your (Shekinah) God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the (Shekinah) Lord your God.
