Hebrew Study


  • The Number Seven and Scripture. Hebrew study of the number seven. Three words in Hebrew have the same root--that is, the triliteral root (Shin - Bet - Ayin). They are: sheba (seven), shaba (oath, swear), and saba (full, satiate). Two of these words are used in Genesis 21:29. One for the place Beersheba, which means Beer (well) of the Sheba (Oath).
  • (YouTube) Genesis 1:1b Elohim. Very interesting in depth study of the Hebrew word Elohim, which is the plural of Eloh.
  • (YouTube) Reading the Bible in Hebrew - Genesis 1:1-5. In (a) beginning, created (unique in the Bible - probably means "out of nothing").
  • Genesis 1:1. "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." In Hebrew, literal word sequence: "In-the-beginning created Elohim the-heavens and the-earth". Hebrew words: "Bereshiyt bara Elohiym et Hashamayim Ha'arets". Mechanical translation: "In-summit he-did-fatten Elohiym [at] the-skies and-at the-land". (YouTube) Genesis 1 verse 1 - Part 1 ~ Bereshiyt. Discussion from Ancient Hebrew Research Center. Note: The speaker does not believe God created, but rather "formed" and "filled" the already existing heavens and earth. Bershiyt = In [the] summit. Other parts: Part 2 ~ Bara, Bara [verb] = Fatten; Cognates: Fat, Clean, Choice Meat, Meat, Covenant (cut the meat), Fat Place, Palace. Part 3 ~ Elohiym, Elohiym [noun; masculine "singular"] = Powers (describing this Creator). Part 4 ~ Et, Et = (move toward a mark in plowing; plowshares; with; you). Part 5 ~ Hashamayim, Hashamayim [masculine] = skies. May be plural of Shem = Name/Breath (or Wind). Part 6 ~ Ha'arets, Ha'arets [feminine] = Soil; Region; Ostracon / Fragment (as from pottery).
  • (YouTube) Genesis 1:1b Elohim.
  • Genesis 1:2. "The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters." See (YouTube) Genesis 1 verse 2 - Part 1 of 2. And Part 2.
  • (YouTube) The Pronunciation of the name YHWH. Interesting derived meaning of YHWH here: (YouTube) Revealed! The Secret Name of God. Suggesting it means "Behold the hand, behold the nail."
  • Introduction. Makes an attempt at identifying the origin of languages from Babel (Genesis 11). Identifies seven anatomical groups: voiceless, lips (bilabial shift; "papa"), throat (guttural shift; "horn"), tooth ridge (dental shift; "earth"), nose (nasal shift; "elm""), rolling tongue (liquid shift; "hole"), and whistling (fricative shift; "scale").
  • The Music From God Project. Transforming Hebrew letters into musical notes and producing music. Listen to a portion of Isaiah at the bottom of the page.
