אֶמֶת Strong’s #571 emet

Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, And thy law is truth.

Psalm 119:142

The root of this word is aman (Strongs #539), a word often translated as “believe,” but more literally meaning “support,” as we see in Isaiah 22:23 where it says “I will drive him like a peg in a place of support…” A belief in Elohiym is not a mental exercise of knowing that Elohiym exists, but rather our responsibility to show him our support. The word emet has the similar meaning of firmness, something that is firmly set in place.
