The Latter (Last) Generation

דּ֣וֹר אַ֭חֲרוֹן Dor Acharon” – the Latter Generation

There are many passages in the Bible that speak about the last generation.

‘And the latter generation [#314, dor acharon, latter generation] of your sons who rise after you, and the stranger who cometh in from a land afar off, have said when they have seen the strokes of that land, and its sicknesses which Yahweh hath sent into it, Deut. 29:22 YLT

Psalm 78 YLT Updated

1 An Instruction of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, to my Law, Incline your ear to sayings of my mouth.

2 I am opening with a simile my mouth, I am bringing forth hidden things of old,

3 That we have heard and do know, And our fathers have recounted to us.

4 We are not hiding it from their sons, to a later generation [#314, dor acharon, latter generation] recounting praises of Yahweh, and His strength, and His wonders that He has done.

5 And He is raising up a testimony in Jacob, And a law has placed in Israel, that He has commanded our fathers, To make them known to their sons.

6 So that a later generation [#314, dor acharon, latter generation] is knowing, Sons who are born are rising and recounting to their sons,

7 And are placing in God their confidence, And forgetting not the doings of God, But keeping His commands.

8 And they are not like their fathers, A generation turning away and a rebelling generation, he has not made ready his heart, and she has not been faithful near God his spirit.

God brings forth “hidden things of old” to this last generation and commands them to “listen up”. Verse 8 lends strongly to the prophetic hint that the last generation is a pair—a masculine and feminine counterpart constituting a single “whole”. Open the Law of Moses again and take a closer look…

This is being written for a later generation [#314, dor acharon, latter generation], And a people to be created are praising Jah. Psalm 102:18 YLT

Set your heart to her bulwark, consider her high places, so that ye are recounting to a later generation [#314, dor acharon, latter generation]… Psalm 48:13 YLT

there is no end to the whole of the people, to the whole which he HAS BEEN before their faces; also, the Latter Ones [#314, Acharonim, latter/hind ones] are rejoicing not in him. For also this one is vapor and striving of spirit. Ecc. 4:16 YLT

There is also a word regarding “The Hind Sea” or the “Sea of the West”. The Sea/Waters is symbolic of the multitudes (Rev. 17). Both of the words here have a definite article the in front of them meaning it is a formal name given,

The Latter Sea – הַיָּ֥ם הָאַחֲרֽוֹן

and all Naphtali, and the land of Ephraim and Manasseh, and all the land of Judah, unto The Hinder [#314, ha-acharon] Sea.. Deut. 34:2
