What does the Hebrew word “goyim” mean?

The Hebrew word goyim is the word that the Jewish people use in Hebrew to refer to non-Jews.

Goyim is not and should not be taken as an insult – it simply is the plural of the word goy, which mean a nation.

YHVH even calls Israel a goy in Exodus 19:6: you shall be to me a Kingdom of priests, a goy kadosh (a holy nation).

I believe that when YHVH looks down at the earth from heaven, He only sees 2 groups of people – Israel and the goyim.

The God of Israel only relates to Israel – the part of Israel that is in a blood covenant relationship with Him.

Hallelu-YAH (praise YHVH) for the blood of His Son Yeshua.

By that precious blood that was poured out on Calvary 2000 years ago, we can all have that covenant relationship with the God of Israel.

Jews and Goyim alike – the broken off Jews can be regrafted back into their own olive tree (Romans 11:17).

And those who are not born Jewish can be grafted in amongst the natural branches.

No longer aliens and foreigners from the goyim (nations), but fellow citizens with those of YHVH’s own household – Israel (Eph 2:11 – 19).
