This word reportedly in Hebrew meaning ‘the way to walk’ / ‘the way of walking’, etc. is not found in the Bible. It is not found in this context meaning what the Orthodox, Rabbinic, etc. Jews wish to assert. Halakah is yet another example of Rabbinic garnering of scripture to extrapolate a biblical sounding meaning to their own end. Of using/embellishing Scripture to obscure Scripture. Rather ‘Halakah’ identifies/labels “the entire body of Jewish law”;

“Halaka, Halakah, Halachah; the ***entire*** body of Jewish law, comprising Biblical laws, oral laws transcribed in the Talmud, and subsequent codes altering traditional teachings. — Halakist, Halachist, n. — Halakic, adj.” – http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Halaka

“and subsequent codes altering traditional teachings” definitely include other BS (beyond scripture) literary works.

Mk 7:6 He [Yahshua] answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. :7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. :8 For laying aside the commandment of [Elohim], ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do. :9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of [Elohim], that ye may keep your own tradition.

Yahshua said; Jn 14:6 … I am the way G3598 hodos, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

‘Torah’ defined seems to mean the ‘Successive Light of Teaching and Instruction’. It is of interest that there are some modern Bible versions that have actually opted a translation choice from that of the ‘Book of the Law’ to the ‘Book of the Instruction’. This is borne out in the Hebrew root words that make up the word “Torah” or ‘Towrah’.

Conclusion – YHWH’s <derek> is the way for Yah obedient Torah Keepers to walk out salvation NOT Rabbinic ‘Halakah’
