Genesis 1:5 Corruption Revealed






This is where the problem starts -

There are two schools of thought.

The first is,


kjv

Gen 1:5
And {Elohim} called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning WERE the first day.

The assumption with this is that Elohim is telling us what a day consists of, an evening and a morning are what a day is comprised of..

And we are told this for six days, yet He does not say this on the 7th. We are to believe that we are not intelligent enough to understand what a day consists of; therefore, He had to tell us six days in a row. That is what the king james conveys.

The other is:


ISR

Gen 1:5
And Elohim called the light ‘day’ and the darkness He called‘night.’ And THERE CAME TO BE evening and THERE CAME TO BE morning, the first day.

Now we can see that the ISR words this differently. So the second school of thought is that Elohim is giving us an order in which things took place. Much like He is showing us the order for the first 7 days. It was all given in order.

Our thought is that on the first day Elohim made light come to be, come to be is the exact same word that is used in verse 5. We see this as Elohim is giving us the order in which things took place. The light came to be, He called the light day and the darkness night and He separated the light from the darkness and then came evening and then came morning. Again, this is the same word used to describe the light that came to be. When He said light come to be the light came to be. So we use this 'come to be' in the same context as He did with light.

This is the word that is used:


H1961
hâyâh
haw-yaw'

A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, BE or BECOME, COME TO PASS (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): -beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like),break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow,happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.



This word means “be” or “become”, “come to pass”. So we see an order taking place rather than a description of what a day consists of.

With that in mind we have to question why would the kjv leave out the word “come to be” but first we must check our resources to see if this is true.

The link provided above shows us that the word /hayah/ is indeed used twice – not just once as the king james conveys.

Lets compare this again


kjv

Gen 1:5
And {Elohim} called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning WERE the first day.

ISR

Gen 1:5
And Elohim called the light ‘day’ and the darkness He called‘night.’ And THERE CAME TO BE evening and THERE CAME TO BE morning, the first day.



From viewing this we can see that blueletterbible.org has left the /hayah/in the Hebrew but when it shows us in the English /hayah/ is no whereto be found. They took it out twice, but not really because its still there in the Hebrew. So to the not-so-diligent they wouldn't even understand that blueletter has corrupted the understanding.




Now here we can see they actually left it intact. The truth is the kjv corrupts Genesis 1:5 by taking away from which is forbidden in the Torah. By their act of treason against the Word they have corrupted the understanding of the text which is giving us a time line and not telling us what a day consists of.

Line upon line, precept upon precept. Here is what Yahusha teaches us concerning the day:


Joh 11:9
Yahusha answered,“ARE THERE NOT TWELVE HOURS IN THE DAY? If anyone walks in the day,he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.


Mat 20:1-12
“For the reign of the heavens is like a man, a householder who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard.
2 “And when he had agreed with the workers for a silver piece A DAY, he sent them into his vineyard.
3 “And he went out about the THIRD HOUR and saw others standing idle in the market-place,
4 and said to them, ‘You too go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I shall give you.’ And they went.
5 “Having gone out again about the SIXTH and the NINTH HOUR, he did likewise.
6 “And about the ELEVENTH HOUR, having gone out, he found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’
7 “They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You too go into the vineyard, and whatever is right you shall receive.’
8 “AND WHEN EVENING (G3798 – opsios) CAME, THE MASTER OF THE VINEYARD SAID TO HIS MANAGER, ‘CALL THE WORKERS AND PAY THEM THEIR WAGES, BEGINNING WITH THE LAST TO THE FIRST.’
9 “And when those came who were hired about the eleventh hour,they each received a silver piece.
10 “And when the first came, they thought they would receive more. But they too received each a silver piece.
11 “And when they received it, they grumbled against the householder,
12 saying, ‘THESE LAST HAVE WORKED ONLY ONE HOUR, and you made them equal to us who have borne the burden and the heat of the day.’

He went out in the morning and hired workers – they worked the 12 hours of the day – when the 12th hour was over – which was EVENING - he paid them their wages.

Morning – day –evening


Deu 24:14-15
14 “Do not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, of your brothers or of the strangers who is in your land within your gates.
15 “GIVE HIM HIS WAGES ON THE SAME DAY, and do not let the sun go down on it, for he is poor and lifts up his being to it, so that he does not cry out against you to Yahuah,and it shall be sin in you.

Lev 19:13
‘Do not oppress your neighbor or rob him.THE WAGES OF HIM WHO IS HIRED IS NOT TO REMAIN WITH YOU ALL NIGHT UNTIL MORNING.

This totally destroys the understanding that the day begins in the evening. If you had to pay them that same day and evening begins the next day then you'd have to pay them before the 12thhour is over and the sun sets. It wouldn't even be possible to make sure that his pay is not remaining with you all night until morning UNLESS the morning began the NEXT day.

Mar 1:32
AND WHEN EVENING CAME, WHEN THE SUN HAD SET, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed.

According to evening to evening Yahusha's parable of the 11th hour worker shows very clearly that it was not until after the 12th hour when evening came that the workers were paid. This would be a direct transgression against the law that specifically says, “give him his wages on the same day”.

Mark 1:32 tells us exactly when evening came to be – when the sun set.

The king james version has been corrupted.

The proof is in the text.



Deu 4:2
“Do not add to the Word which I command you, and do not takeaway from it, so as to guard the commands of Yahuah your Elohim which I am commanding you.
