The Missing Vav



Genesis 2:4 This is the history of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,

There is something that stands out about this verse from all others except for one. It is because of the word that is translated history/generation/genealogy is spelt correctly only here and one other place.


The second letter from the right is the Vav. The only other place it is spelt correctly is in Ruth 4:18 where the genealogy of Perez is given, the twin son of Judah which is in the genealogy of Jesus.

Genesis 2:4 is the only time that this word is used before the fall of man. Could there be something that had to do with sin that caused the Vav to disappear? If that is the case, then would would cause the Vav to be restored in Ruth?

Here is my take on it. If, as suggested in previous articles on the Vav, this letter represents Jesus, then life is restored in the creation of the family line of Perez to bring us back to a nature that was before sin began. Again, Jesus revealed.
