א aleph

א God spoke and created the heavens and the earth.

This is the primary metaphor of the alef. With the diagonal vav, he spoke into the void dividing two creations, represented by the yuds. The vav is diagonal. If it were vertical it would only have divided time and eternity. A horizontal vav would only divide heaven and earth. Being diagonal, we are told that when God spoke creation into existence, part of creation existed in time, and part of it (one of the created heavens) outside of time.

The alef is the first letter of the alefbet it is also the number 1, but the the name alef means 1000.

2Pe 3:8 ¶ But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Ps 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight [are but] as yesterday when it is past, and [as] a watch in the night.


The alef is a vowel. Vowels are pronounced with only breath. The alef is silent. From this we discern that when God spoke and created the heavens and the earth he did so in silence. There was no one there to hear it.

The rabbis ask why the scriptures start with the bet, the second letter of the alefbet, rather than the alef. They only have riddles, not solutions. Solutions come from the scriptures. It is the first letter of the scriptures, but it is not only silent, it is invisible. From this we discern that when God created the universe, he did it when there was no one there to hear or SEE it either.

Job 38:4 ¶ Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
Isa 43:10 ... before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.
