.. You were estranged from the national life of Isra'el. You were foreigners to the
covenants embodying God's promise. .. But now, you who were once far off have been
brought near through the shedding of the Messiah's blood. .. He did this in order
to create in union with himself from the two groups a single new humanity and thus
make shalom .. Yes, in union with him, you yourselves are being built together into
a spiritual dwelling-place for God! (Eph 2:12-22)
Meaning of tribe – “Attached, joined, united, knotted”

Psalms 119:105 AMP
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
The light in the tabernacle was the seven branch Menorah. The Menorah had to be filled
with only pure oil. Symbolising the pure Word of God that will bring light when activated
through the fire of Holy Spirit released at Pentecost. Purity (the gate of Simeon)
will provide oil for the light within you, the two are intertwined
Matthew 4:16 AMP
The people who sat (dwelt enveloped) in darkness have seen a great Light, and for
those who sat in the land and shadow of death Light has dawned.
When the light of Yahshua and the Word (Torah) comes into our lives, it is like a
light switch being turned on in a dark room, and we see where we are. We can evaluate
ourselves, we can see whether our works are wicked or not.
John 3:17-21 NIV
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the
world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not
believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's
one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved
darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates
the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly
that what he has done has been done through God."
