"The Lord will not forsake His people for His great name’s sake,"

Forsake or "natash" in the Hebrew language meaning "to pound, that is smite, to disperse, to thrust off, down, out, reject, let alone, permit, let fall, forsake, leave, suffer" The ALEPH-TAV signature of the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the Ending was placed after the word "forsake" giving it a special meaning. The LORD GOD was forsaken so we will not be forsaken.
