Mordechai: Meaning of the Name
Mem~Resh~Dalet~Kaf~Yud spells Mordekai, meaning “little man” or “worshiper of Mars”
He was the cousin and adoptive father of queen Esther; the son of Yair of the tribe of Binyamin.
Mem~Resh~Dalet~Kaf spells Mrodak, meaning “thy rebellion.” The letters spelling Mrodak, “thy rebellion,” are in Mordekai .
Is there a connection ?
In these words are Resh~Dalet~Mem, which spells radam, a verb meaning “to be asleep.”
Mem~Resh~Dalet spells marad, a verb) meaning “to rebel against G-d, against light”
Dalet~Resh~Kaf spells derek, which means way, road, habit, course of life, manner or character.
Was Mordekai a man of smaller stature, as his name suggests?
Surely, Mordekai wasn’t a worshiper of the heathen deity Mars!
1 Samuel 25:25 says, “As his name is, so is he.” Do the holy letters conceal yet reveal the character or nature of a person, place or thing? I find there is always a direct correlation of some kind.
What’s your view on this?
