The Power of Two

Angela Kunkel
Angela Renee Kunkel



  "One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do”. “One” is a song written by Harry Nilsson and made famous by “Three Dog Night”. The song is known for this opening line which Nilsson wrote after calling someone and getting a busy signal. He stayed on the line listening to the “beep, beep, beep, beep…” tone, while writing the song. The next line of the song says, “two can be as bad as one”, but is this true? The Hebrew word for two is “shnayim”, meaning divide, difference, oppose, judge, discern, witness, conflict, blessing, abundance, building, couple, dying to self. Shnayim (two) is also related to the word shanah, which means change or repeat.

Ideally, two should mirror one, as in the “two shall become one flesh”. But from the beginning of creation,

  G~d ‘made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’So they are no longer two, but one flesh.’ (Mark 10:6-8). This is the idea of a true “pair” that works together like one’s eyes, ears, nostrils, hands, or feet.
