Psalm 139:16 Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all [my members] were written, [which] in continuance were fashioned, when [as yet there was] none of them.

This is another example of a complicated Hebrew phrase that gives the translators fits. They are myopic – near sighted. They fail to take into account that the Holy Spirit was able to inspire a truth that could only be understood in the future. Let’s look at the verse.

This is why the verse is about DNA:

  • Let’s start with the word “book”. The Hebrew word is “cepher” and it means a decree or set of instructions that are written on a scroll. Do not picture a book like we have today, the word is scroll.


  • Now lets look at the word “substance”. It comes from the Hebrew word “golem” and means  a fetus or embryo. The instructions for the development of the fetus or embryo is determined by the information in the scroll.
  • Next we will consider “all [my members] were written”. It comes from one word, “kathab”, and means information that prescribes or directs. That is, the various parts of the body are all prescribed in this scroll.
  • The word translated “fashioned” comes from “yatsar” and means something that comes into form according to a predetermined plan.
  • Finally we consider “In continuance”. This comes from one Hebrew word: “yowm” and means a specific or special period of time. That is the development of the embryo or body over time ,in its proper sequence, is also recorded in this scroll.

My translation then is : God has a scroll with prescribed instructions that determine the development of my body, with all its members, in their proper sequence, from the embryonic stage until maturity. DNA 

The Bible also mentions atomic energy, time dilation, relativity, the Hubble effect etc. Look for these studies in my other stories or

      Looking at the verse from Psalms in Hebrew, it absolutely agrees with your interpretation — even more so than most of the English translations.

      Young’s Literal has it:

      “Mine unformed substance Thine eyes saw, And on Thy book all of them are written, The days they were formed — And not one among them.”

      The literal interpretation from Scripture 4 all dot org has it:

      embryo of me they saw eyes of you and on scroll of you all of them they are being written days they were formed and not and to him one in them.


      Good find.

      (Sorry to have made such a mess of your other article’s comment section. So much for that ‘patience’ you credited me with.)

      • Mike Clinton

        Thanks Beef, I know you dig into this stuff so your agreement is encouraging.

    • llort

      I’m sure that you can plug in a word that you want and translate it into anything you want it to say can’t you!

      • Majik Imaje

        I’m sure you are 100% wrong! & I have overwhelming proof!

    • llort

      That’s the beauty of translating from one language to another! You can make a new book with a better translation!

      • Mike Clinton

        Call me old fashioned but I still think words have a meaning. Elephant will never be translated spider, will it?

        • llort

          Words do have a meaning and sometimes many meanings! Maybe not in the case of elephant but there are words in the old languages that have different meanings depending on what context you use them. Any slight variation on the pronunciation and it means something totally different.

        • Mike Clinton

          Everyone knows that words must be in context. So what is your point? Are you suggesting that mine were not in context? If you are, then show me where.

      Without any evidence to back this up, I have often thought that the “tree of knowledge” in genesis wasn’t just the revealing of facts or ideas. It was a genetic modification of mans DNA, specifically with brain function. Prior to that, adam and eve’s minds couldn’t formulate the thought processes required to sin.
      Atheists love to attack the born with sin idea with how could a baby have sinned? By being related to adam, they carry the modified DNA that enables their minds to contemplate sin. Acting on it is another story, but the basis for creating the thoughts exists in all humans.
      Adam and Eve allowed themselves to be modified from the original design and now their descendants carry those corrupted genes.
      Just a thought.

      • Mike Clinton

        “Just a thought”, but a good one. Something happened to them that has been passed down to us. I want to study the possible effect on the pituitary gland.

      “…the Hebrew word “golem” and means a fetus or embryo.”

      See there you go again telling lies to substantiate codswallop.

      “In Jewish folklore, a golem (pron.: /ˈɡoʊləm/ goh-ləm; Hebrew: גולם‎) is an animated anthropomorphic being, created entirely from inanimate matter.”

      “cepher” is Hebrew for a ‘legal document’, not a set of instructions.

      This is as ridiculous as your previous article trying to claim water comes out of your body when stabbed along with blood because you watched some fictional TV drama you couldn’t/wouldn’t name.

        There are several Hebrew words that have been used in Jewish folklore. The Talmud uses the word just as I described it. I understand the Jewish Golem fantasy but we are not talking about folklore here, we are talking about the definition of a Hebrew word. Lilith is another Hebrew word that has been used in folklore. The Hebrew word simply means night creature, an owl for instance. The fantasy about Lilith is a late invention.

        Legal document is good. A document that contains legal instruction is one use of the word. A missive from an official source, written order, written decree, genealogical register, record book (of God) are all forms of this word. So my definition, ” The Hebrew word is “cepher” and it means a decree or set of instructions that are written on a scroll.” is absolutely accurate.

        • llort

          Twisting the words of old writings has been going on since the creation of the bible so what you’re doing isn’t anything new. Make it what you want it to say! Isn’t that the name of the game?

        • Mike Clinton

          No, what I did was to bring out what it said. You have not given an example of twisted words in my post.

        • llort

          Come on….do I really need to! You’re attempting to give the text a whole new meaning! I’m sure you can do that for the whole old testament and come up with a whole new book….given that time and effort.

        • Mike Clinton

          Why don’t you take just one verse and show us?

        • Pix

          Legal documents are not a list of instructions, that would be an instruction manual. Legal documents are about your rights, not instructions.

          You used the word Golem, if you meant something else you should have used the appropriate label for it.

          All of it folk law fairy stories, you can’t distinquish fact from fiction on any of it seeing as none of it has any historical evidence. All you are doing is making it up as you go to justify your belief in it. So far not very convincing.

        • Pix

          ” The Talmud uses the word just as I described it.”


          No it does not.

          “In Jewish tradition, the golem is most widely known as an artificial creature created by magic, often to serve its creator. The word “golem” appears only once in the Bible (Psalms139:16). In Hebrew, “golem” stands for “shapeless mass.” The Talmud uses the word as “unformed” or “imperfect” and according to Talmudic legend, Adam is called “golem,” meaning “body without a soul” (Sanhedrin 38b) for the first 12 hours of his existence. The golem appears in other places in the Talmud as well. One legend says the prophet Jeremiah made a golem However, some mystics believe the creation of a golem has symbolic meaning only, like a spiritual experience following a religious rite.”

          • Lyn

            Hebrew index according to Young’s concordance, The word is goi, it means gentile (mentioned 30 times), heathen (142), nation (373), people (11), another (1). :mad:

        • Mike Clinton

          Pix, your occidental slip is showing. There you go again, mixing fables and traditions up with etymology.

      • Majik Imaje

        A scientific observation here @ home. Squeeze a pimple – The cheese is released! What comes next ? I see it for years – the same two things = blood & water! Scientific proof that can’t be disputed!

        • Mike Clinton

          And you realized this all by yourself. :idea: You should have it peer reviewed. :lol:

      • Green23

        I have read the Bible more than four times and have never saw anything mentioned about Golem in it. There is even a dictionary in the back where I can get the meaning of some Hebrew words to understand the Bible better and still no Golem. Have you personally ever even read the Bible cover to cover? In High School we had a Religious Studies Group to learn about regions and do know 90% of us were Christians? Also those that weren’t didn’t want to talk about their beliefs even though we encouraged them to. We wanted to learn about other regions, people accuse Christians of being close minded but in my experience most of the time we reach out and do more than any other religion. We usually don’t sway from beliefs but that doesn’t mean we’re close minded that means we found something that works for us and we’re sticking with it. For the record I do know of the idea of a Golem I saw it from watching Supernatural. Maybe you should talk to the shows producers I am positive they would love some of your ideas for their show.

        • Green23

          Oh this is in response to Pix I pushed respond to them, but somehow my response ended up too low.

        • Mike Clinton

          Hi Green23. Yes I have read the Bible from cover to cover many times. I go through the Bible 5-12 times a year. I read it through every year and I listen to it on CD while I work all day.

          Golem is a Hebrew word. It is one of the Hebrew words that has been taken and used to build a myth around that has nothing to do with the original word.

          Here is a link from the Blue Letter Bible about the word:

    • Mayhem

      This Mike Clinton guy sure writes some thought provoking articles.

      @llort, i don’t see any word twisting going on, you said it and got called on it. Pix gave it a good shot with out success, do you have anything better?

      • Mike Clinton

        Thank you very much for the encouragement.

      • llort

        You like to think you stumbled on something new…but you haven’t. Just a new way of twisting things to make words say what you want them to say! End of story!!!!!

        • Majik Imaje

          Did you know ? Genesis 1:1 = Pi to four exacting decimal points!
          Did you know? John 1: 1 = Log e to four exacting decimal points!

          Can you find the “hidden” message in Genesis chapter 5 ? The best place to hide something (is right in front of a person). God does this constantly all through the scriptures.

          It is the Glory of God to conceal a thing; (Proverbs 25) It is the duty of Kings to search out a matter.

          Genesis chapter 5 has a simple message that is profound – but can you find it?? It is right in front of you! Make a list of those ten names – Now extract the meanings of each name and read the simple sentence!!

        • Majik Imaje

          You – have failed to realize that biblical greek is perhaps the most “precise” language in the world. (The Septuagint) Your presumptions are off the chart! If uneducated superstitious people; were the authors of the bible; THEN; One could clearly make the argument that a “fingerprint” must be visible. But as a person studies the bible they become aware that this book “Was written OUTSIDE of our time realm”. The predictions and prophesies are too detailed and specific. Only God can see the end – from the beginning. He included it in Genesis ! You can find the simple truth (only if you study)! Yes the end is clearly visible in Genesis you can easily follow that “thread” throughout the entire bible on every single page! BUT YOU NEVER KNEW THAT! Only because YOU have never taken the time – “to look”!

        • Mike Clinton

          I believe Chuck Missler teaches most of what you have said here. Is that right?

    • RickDC

      Very excellent study.

    • DarthChop

      You can’t add words to make it fit your meaning.
      When you read the entire Psalm for context, he is referring to the fact that his God knew every one of the days of his life before he had even lived one.

    • DarthChop

      If you read the entire passage for context, it points out that he was referring to his God knowing every one of the days of his life before he had even lived one.

      • Mike Clinton

        I covered that in the article. It is talking about the book determining the bodies different parts developing in their appointed time.

    • David

      This subject has been t the tip of my tongue for a long time now. I can’t begin to tell you the feeling of affirmation that comes from being witness to other’s light illuminate as He would want it done at, at the appointed time and place. Good reading your thoughts, and look forward to reading more.

    • deddokatana

      according to this source.. verse 16 of coarse

      the book was gods (k denotes belonging to), rather the writers book/dna. you dont get future family members from someone elses dna in its entirety .. (im like wow.. this is getting awesome , mind bending and flaky… because your partner selects you for there family members). this would denote
      a) your sexual partner who you bore chilldren with was god. – needs further background reading.
      b) your dna is sequenced and written in a book that is probably stored beyond space and time, and known to god before you were born. and your dna supposedly contains flaws in it that are likely to make you (at least eventually) behave in a way that is likely punishable by hell. it is not know if god is mearly recording, but we are assuming he sequenced it becuase most believe god created them individually.
      c) soulmates are a thing, but divorce happens and is frowned apon. and then theres the illegitimate child paradox of not having kids outside of wedlock! wedding ceromonies often include the recognition of the union by god!

      the rest of this psalm reads like a love letter!
