The modern definition of statute is "a written law passed by a legislative body." The word statute appears in the Bible in one form or another several hundred times but may have a different definition. The most common Hebrew word for statute is choq [1] consisting of two Hebrew letters ChetKuf and is also translated ordinance, decree, due, law, portion, bounds, custom, appointed, Even commandments. The normal word for "commandments" is [2] composed of completely different letters, MemAyinVavHey

  • ק KUF or Kof Omnipresence - Redemption of Fallen Sparks The paradoxical union reish and a zayin holiness or separateness omnipresence of God [Cord... back of the head... Behind the last, least] 100
  • ח CHET The Life Force - Dynamic nature of live and give life.[fence, thread, hedge, chamber...cycle] 8

The first place we see the word commonly translated Statute it appears as the word portion in Genesis 47:22

  • "Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion [assigned them] of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

The next time choq appears it is translated law. Genesis 47:26 "And Joseph made it a law <02706> over the land of Egypt unto this day, that Pharaoh should have the fifth part; except the land of the priests only, which became not Pharaoh’s."

The most common word for law in the Bible is Torah which comes from a word meaning teach but with the Hebrew letter for faith added in the front. Another word translated law is chathan[3]

Exodus 5:14 And the officers of the children of Israel, which Pharaoh’s taskmasters had set over them, were beaten, and demanded, Wherefore have ye not fulfilled your task <02706> in making brick both yesterday and to day, as heretofore? Exodus 12:24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance <02706> to thee and to thy sons for ever. Exodus 15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute <02706> and an ordinance, and there he proved them,
