"Thus saith the Yahweh, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to My Torah, but rejected it."
The 10th new moon of the scriptural year has been sighted locally the evening of the 12th and from Israel the evening of the 13th. This marks the beginning of the 10th month or moon of the year.
Very interesting that the term December comes from the Roman term Decem which is similar to the Greek Deca or Deka which means 10 or tenth. Although December is the 12th month of the Gregorian calendar, the Roman calender originally began in the 3rd month of our present calendar which is closer to the scriptural calendar which always begins late the 3rd month to early the 4th month. So although the 12th month on our calendars, its name actually means the 10th month, which this year the 10th scriptural moon lands almost in the middle of the Roman Decem.
