At other times . there will undoubtedly be some misinterpretation of the Ancient Hebrew culture and pictographs. The study of any Ancient culture is like putting together a puzzle. Sometimes the gaps in the puzzle are small and easy to fill in based on the pieces around it. or pictographs. but the pieces we do have. change and evolve over time.Introduction ____________________________________ This book is unique in that it will look at the Biblical Hebrew language of the Bible through the eyes of the Ancient Hebrews who wrote it. The original letters of the Hebrew alphabet was actually pictures. In a work such as this. Each picture represented an object whose definition is closely related to the agricultural lifestyle of the Ancient Hebrews. It is the goal of this work to bring out the Ancient Hebrew meanings of words to the student of the Bible as never before done. By studying the culture and lifestyle of the Ancient Hebrews we can better understand their language. similar to Egyptian Hieroglyphs. We will never have all the pieces to the puzzle. just like any other language. The study of the Ancient Hebrew language and alphabet begins with an understanding of the Ancient Hebrew culture as both are intimately related. The definitions of Hebrew words. Modern readers often ignore the fact that the Bible is an Ancient text and must be read as an Ancient text. we piece together and attempt to fill in the gaps as efficiently as possible.

There is much work to be done in this area of language and word study and I hope that others. who have the same love for the Ancient Hebrew language and culture. will take on the challenge of continuing the research needed to piece together the puzzle. 2 .Ancient Hebrew Language and Alphabet these gaps are large and difficult to fill in.

To the Ancient Hebrew nomads the word "rain" was usually equated with "life" since without it. Another example of the importance of understanding the cultural setting can be seen in the word "dinner". The bride and groom who are prepared for an outdoor wedding view this news with a negative connotation. There are countless examples in our own English language of how word meanings change over time according to the culture. different people will interpret the word "rain" in different ways. For example the Bible speaks of keeping and 16 . "dinner" was the main meal of the day eaten at noon and a light "supper" was eaten in the evening. "the coming down of water from the clouds in the sky". but the interpretation of the word rain will be influenced by the context of the culture. A word such as "rain" has the meaning. while to the farmer in the middle of a drought season. When we read the Bible as a 21st Century American.Ancient Hebrew Language and Alphabet Why study the Ancient Hebrew language and culture? The Hebrew people. it has a positive connotation. This is true even in our own culture where the word "rain" can be interpreted differently. with a circumstantial biasness.500 and 500 BCE.

How do we study the Ancient Hebrew language and culture? Archeologists who uncover Ancient artifacts study the Ancient cultures. But this is not the Ancient Hebraic meaning of these words. Anthropologists interpret these artifacts to determine the Ancient culture's way of life. Throughout the world there remains primitive cultures whose lifestyles have remained the same for thousands of years.000 years ago. Linguists and etymologists study the ancient languages. Will you cherish his commands or throw them on the ground and walk on them? A people's language is very related to their culture.

The purpose of this book is to teach the relationship between the Hebrew language and the Hebrew culture. When we combine and study the material provided by these fields of study.

What happened to this Ancient Hebrew thought and culture? Around 800 BCE. which has adopted a western culture.

The Greek culture then in turn. Our own American culture and even the Modern Hebrew culture in Israel today are strongly influenced by the Greek culture.

Around 200 BCE the Greeks began to move south causing a coming together of the Greek and Hebrew culture. there are two major types of cultures. This was a very tumultuous time as the two vastly different cultures collided. such as Europe and America. Over the following 400 years the battle raged until finally the Greek culture won and virtually eliminated all traces of the Ancient Hebrew culture. .Hebrew Thought ____________________________________ In the world.Two .

When one is very angry.Jeff A. "it is yellow and about eight inches long". A Greek description of a common pencil would be. Anger. Let us take one of the above abstract words to demonstrate the translation from a concrete Hebrew word to an abstract English word. Functional Description Greek thought describes objects in relation to its appearance. Hebrew thought describes objects in relation to its function. A Hebrew sees anger as “the flaring of the nose (nostrils)”. these are abstract English words used to translate the original Hebrew concrete words. If the translator literally translated the above passage “slow to nose”. The translators often translate this way because the original Hebrew makes no sense when literally translated into English. Notice that the Hebrew description uses the verb "write" while the Greek description uses the adjectives "yellow" and "long". the English reader would not understand. he begins to breath hard and the nostrils begin to flare. Because of Hebrew's form of functional descriptions. a concrete word. A Hebrew description of the pencil would be related to its function such as "I write words with it". an abstract word. verbs are used much more frequently then adjectives. To our Greek way of thinking a deer and an oak are two very different objects and we would never describe them in the same way. The Hebrew word for both of these objects is lya / ayil because the functional description of 21 . is actually the Hebrew word @a / awph which literally means “nose”. Appearance vs. Benner concrete thinking Hebrews? Actually.

"The voice of the LORD makes the strong leaders turn ".Ancient Hebrew Language and Alphabet these two objects are identical to the Ancient Hebrews. the same Hebrew word is used for both. therefore. The literal translation of this verse in Hebrew thought would be. Passive vs. The wood of the oak tree is very hard compared to other trees and is seen as a "strong leader" among the trees of the forest. just as in most Ancient 22 . The Greek culture recognizes words such as knee and gift as nouns. When translating the Hebrew into English. A deer stag is one of the most powerful animals of the forest and is seen as "a strong leader" among the other animals of the forest. Notice the two different translations of the Hebrew word lya in Psalms 29:9. the Greek thinking translator will give a Greek description to this word for the Greek thinking reader. The Hebraic definition of lya is "a strong leader". which is why we have two different ways of translating this verse. But. Hebrew nouns refer to the action of a person place or thing.15. This same word "ayil” is also translated as a "ruler" (a strong leader of men) in 2 Kings 24. which by themselves impart no action. Active Nouns Greek nouns are words that refer to a person. The NASB and KJV translates it as "The voice of the LORD makes the deer to calve" while the NIV translates it as "The voice of the LORD twists the oaks". place or thing. in Hebrew. The Hebrews are active people and their vocabulary reflects this lifestyle.

The Greek mind designates a knee and a gift as inanimate nouns unrelated in meaning. 1992) 66 23 26 .

The Hebrew word for father is ba / av and literally means "the one who gives strength to the family" and mother ~a / em means "the one that binds the family together". When we read the Ancient texts of the Hebrew Bible we must remember that the words used are related to the Ancient Hebrew culture and thought. to suppress our Western Greek minds. all words are related to action. Even the Hebrew nouns for father and mother are descriptive of action.Jeff A. therefore. The Origins and Nature of Language (Indiana University Press.

Creator The second word. Both the shepherd's staff and the yoke perform the same function. The Hebraic meaning of la / al is a "powerful leader". The Ancient Hebrews saw God as a bird40 that builds a nest. The Hebraic understanding of this verse is that God brought together the heavens and the earth as the nest for his children he could nurture and care for them as a mother and teach and guide them into truth by yoking them to himself. The Ancient Hebrews saw themselves yoked to God who taught them how to walk a proper life. To train the younger oxen. The Child Root enq / hnq has the meaning of acquiring the materials for the nest.

"These are the commandments the LORD proclaimed in a loud voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire. The shepherd carried a staff as a tool to lead and guide the sheep as well as to discipline and protect them. Combined they have the meaning of "to gather to the staff of the shepherd".22 as another example of how the Hebraic understanding of words reveals the heart of God. The second is the shepherd's staff. 42 . We have previously looked at these two pictographs in this chapter. The staff is a sign of his authority over the sheep. to gather." Two words in this passage. The Hebrew word leq / lhq / qahal (translated as "assembly" above) is "the gathering of the sheep to the voice of the shepherd". The Ancient Hebraic understanding of this verse is that God is the shepherd who will teach and protect his sheep and when he calls them they come to him as his flock. When the shepherd calls the flock. they recognize his voice and gather to him. The first letter is the sun at the horizon meaning.

d

Dal

Pictographic (form): Ancient alphabet charts include two possibilities for the Ancient pictographic form for this letter, (a fish -- "dahg" in Hebrew) and d (a picture of a tent door -- "dahl" or "delet" in Hebrew). The Modern name for this letter is dalet meaning a door indicating that the original form of the letter is the d. Mnemonic (meaning): Dangle -- the tent door hangs down from the horizontal pole as seen in the picture of the letter; Movement -- the door is used to move in and out or back and forth through the tent; Weak, Poor -- one who hangs his head down, as in poverty. Syllabic (name): While the Modern Hebrew name for this letter is dalet (3 consonants), the Arabic name of ld / dal (the original 2 consonant root), meaning door, gives us the original two letter name. Phonetic (sound): Hebrew (dalet), Greek (delta) and Arabic (dal) agree that the sound for this letter is "d".

e

Hey

Pictographic (form): Most all sources agree that the original picture is e, a man with his arms raised out as if pointing toward something. Mnemonic (meaning): Look -- when one sees a great sight he throws his arms toward it and sighs saying "look at that"; Reveal -- a pointing to a sight to show to another; Breath -- as when sighing.

Ancient Hebrew Language and Alphabet

Syllabic (name): The Modern Hebrew (hey) and Arabic (hey) have retained the original two letter name of ah / hey meaning look. Phonetic (sound): This letter originally had a consonant "h" sound, as retained in Modern Hebrew, as well as a vowel "e" sound as retained in the Greek.

f

Waw

Pictographic (form): Ancient alphabet charts include two possibilities for the Ancient pictographic form for this letter, f and . The Hebrew word vav / waw means a peg. The tent pegs were made of wood and may have been Y-shaped as in the first picture to prevent the rope from slipping off. Mnemonic (meaning): Add, Secure -- the peg is used for securing or tying the tent or other items together. Syllabic (name): The Modern Hebrew name for this letter is ww / vav, meaning peg, retaining the original two letter name. Phonetic (sound): While the Modern pronunciation for this letter is "vav", the original sound for this letter was "w" and is retained in the Modern Arabic as "waw". This letter also doubled as a vowel with a "ow" and "uw" sound which Modern Hebrew has retained.
