Shem Torath

 

Pronunciation:  shehm + to-RAHTH

Occurrences:  7

First Reference:  Wisdom 28:18

 

Thus in each community shall there be fashioned, a garden of exquisite beauty, and this garden shall be called: The Gardens of Shem Torath; and in the center place shall there be built a tabernacle where even all believers might be gathered into one, to take to themselves both healing and instruction regarding the things of God.

 

 

See:  Ondi-Ahman (gardens of), Tabernacle of God’s Peace

 

Summary:  In the book of Wisdom, the author foretells and encourages the construction of community centers established in the midst of exquisite gardens, referred to as “the Gardens of Shem Torath” (W:28:8-19). These community centers are referred to in scripture as the “Tabernacles of God’s Peace” (W:28:17-19).

 

The term is also used in scripture to describe the location where Adam and Eve often communed with one another, near the “waters of Shem Torath” (1:10:28-31; 1:11:51; 6:8:47). The meaning of the phrase is presently unknown.

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Consider now this present moment, this age in which you live, for it is expedient that we establish among the faithful, the Tabernacle of God’s Peace, to be in each community a beacon of light and hope.

Thus in each community shall there be fashioned, a garden of exquisite beauty, and this garden shall be called: The Gardens of Shem Torath; and in the center place shall there be built a tabernacle where even all believers might be gathered into one, to take to themselves both healing and instruction regarding the things of God.

Thus is there given unto this world just one temple only, to be found in the Gardens of Ondi-Ahman; while of the Tabernacle of God’s Peace there shall be many, each one found within a garden, called the Gardens of Shem Torath.

Wisdom 28:17-19

 

Now when Adam and Eve were come unto a certain place by the waters of Shem Torath, they did commune one with the other in all gentle affections, speaking and laughing in the midst of their joy; being unmindful of those which watched from a distance; being centered only upon that love which they did hold for one another.

And throughout the day did Adam and Eve lay together beside the waters of Shem Torath, moving each upon the other in great love, consuming each through gentle kisses, the passions of both body and spirit.

1st Endowment 10:28-29
