The Hebrew Root M-L-Kh Means Adviser or Counselor, not King

For thirty-one years I am in Israel and did not know until this Shabbat that the Hebrew word Melekh, which is usually translated 'king' has another, more original, meaning: Counselor or Adviser.

The meaning of the word that is usually translated as 'king' in Torah, does not mean ruler, but rather Adviser or Counselor.

Interestingly, the same radical  m-l-kh means both to advise and to be advised by.

This, correct, use of the radical M-L-Kh was common in the original Zionist literature, but was silenced when the State was established.

Now, the name David, as is commonly known, means beloved.
In Hebrew Gematria, it also equals 'the one who loves'.

So King David in Hebrew means: Loving Adviser and Beloved Advisor.

The name Shlomo (Solomon) comes from the radical sh-l-m which means: Perfection.

King Shlomo, then, is Perfect Counselor or Perfect Adviser.

So, now we know the true understanding of everything that is written in Torah about what we thought are, but are actually all those who Advise and Counsel us in Love.
