More about the word EMET

The root of this word is aman, a word often
translated as “believe,” but more literally means
“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. Psalms
119:142 says, “the “Torah” (the teachings of
Elohiym) is “emet” (set firmly in place).
