The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis #9 — Steemit

The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis #9

in hebrew •  7 months ago

Welcome back to my DTube Hebrew reading & language series.

The full study is now on line covering the Alef-Beyt here in my blog. This is a beginners program to teach letters, vowels, and reading. The vowels are marked in this bible and are designed to help avoid confusion on what a word is and how it is pronounced. The confusion is obvious in the hundreds of interpretations globally. In modern Hebrew, only children need a niqqud or vowel marking for each letter. Old manuscripts also usually have vowels marked.

This week's reading is from Genesis 1:17 and onward.

When you got to the DTube video, you will find the words covered in this lesson in their context.

We are mid-sentence as God put the stars in the expanse and went on to make a separation between light and darkness. These are the vocabulary words for today. I really try to keep the lessons short so we can learn just a few things, not too much, each time we read.

By now, you should start to recognize that what looks like one Hebrew word, is a group of English words or a construct in some cases. Various forms of the letter vav mean and or on or in at the beginning. Many many sentences begin with and, which is the vav (or the interpretation of it).

Why so many interpretations?

English has over a hundred and fifty prepositions, but Latin languages have much fewer, about fifteen, and Hebrew has roughly fifty if you try not to count the ones that repeat while trying to match the English meaning or vice versa. For now, we are not memorizing lists, but running across things as we go.

Below, if I have my lines straight and in the right colors, you will see that the beyt is interpreted as over in both cases though it is pronounced "bah" in the first case and "vah" in the second. The vav means "and" even though it has an "ooh" sound as in "voodoo". The reason is similar to our reason for saying "an apple" instead of A Apple. Get used to it. Vav is a versatile letter.


Did you notice that the interpretor of this Tanakh, has added the word "the" to both "day" and "night". The familiar hey in the Hebrew is not present or needed here. The English sounds better as "over the day" so it is there. Hebrew sounds better without it. This is all part of learning a language.

Darkness and Light

the darkness

the light

Here we have "the" at the beginning of each word, "the light" and "the darkness" because it sounds better that way in both languages. Note also that the vowel is different under each Hebrew letter 'hey', even so the both signify the definite article, "the". Again, there really are no "translations" because everything needs to be interpreted, and they all have translator's bias in the mix. As a trilingual person, I make translation decisions all day every day. Should I use phrase-A which works, or phrase-B which also works? I have to choose which one works as I speak or write in daily life.

Note: My explanations of how and why may seem disrespectful and analytical in nature. I must stress that after the teaching is done, I have my time to read my Tanakh. In my studies, I admire and relish the history and dedication with which Hebrew script was copied by hand, meticulously making every "jot and tittle" as Yeshua says. He takes every letter very seriously. For that reason, I do too.

hello sir @hebrew ,,, how are you ?
wow excellent new lesson, i am slowly learning hebrew and i enjoy learning my friend @hebrew
i will's a good lesson for all the people..that's why they can learn diffrent type of letter day by day...
Hope next we will see another lesson soon..


I love his teaching too. I've followed his lessons for some time now and it's amazing. I'm w beginner in the Hebrew lesson. I think it's good for every Christian to learn the Hebrew language. It gives a lot of insights in the Old Testament and some portions of the New Testament. Stay blessed @hebrew and @dini1


זה מדהים את הידע של ספרי קודש של אבות, החוכמה שלהם בהשראת אלוהים, הם שמרו את הידע במשך יותר מ 4000 שנים ועכשיו זה רק כי המדענים לאמת את קיומו של אור וחושך. אני משאיר את הסרטון הזה מסביר את מה שאתה אומר בשיעור שלך ויש הרבה


Great lesson! I can see now the difference between the light and the darkness. English obviously uses much more prepositions than Hebrew. I can see now that word “vav” can have a more meaning such as “and, on, in”. I can also see Hebrew uses one word instead of English using multiple words.


wow this is a very good option/jesson............

thank you sir.........

Did you notice that the interpretor of this Tanakh, has added the word "the" to both "day" and "night".

I noticed there is no “the” in Hebrew based on color marks. Which makes it much less difficult. We can use as well “over night” and “over day” I hope I understood this. And yes one Hebrew word has many words in English. I can clearly see it on your Dtube video for example “to give light”. Looks like Hebrew language is a state of art language.


Great comment. I know it is not an easy language,but explanation from a learner's perspective helps new learners.

The more you know, the more you know you don't know!


This is a hard language to pick up! It is important to me as a Christian. Thank you!

It is something new to me but I am curious to know this language and your tutorial is user friendly, so I can really get it on track and I am sure I will find it easier than ever with your tutorial.

Thank you @hebrew.

Your dtube videos are realy very helpful in reading hebrew . Thanks for starting dtude series . Shabat shalom 🙏

i really like looking at these distinct scripts that people from the past have been writing approximately their lifestyle and the gadget how the whole thing labored and these language are nonetheless being used as each language has some thing a few special pinch in itself .each time I learn more about Hebrew, which is an ancient and delightful language!

Hello @hebrew,

Following the lessons from now...

Darkness and Light is like Yin and Yang! You made another great and valuable DTube video session and explained further well!

Thank you and Shabbat Shalom~

Perfect length for each Lesson.... every letter is so important. I am recognizing all the vav(and) and ha (The) now ....

Much stronger lesson introducing. Exactly Dtube lessons very deserve to easily understand everything. Last time and this time your Dtube lessons nicely making. Video better more than word contents.
Shabbat Shalom


That would be me and my timid nature. Once I say it, I can't correct it as easily. You can bet I thought of making more in depth videos, but I am not good with editors - think - I am pointing a camera at the screen! No, I am not good with these things.

I am trying :)


One of Judaism's great figures is the man called Moshe Rabbenu ('Moses our teacher') in Hebrew. The first five books of the Bible are traditionally ascribed to him. Moses is the channel between God and the Hebrews, through whom the Hebrews received a basic charter for living as God's people.

You have made me like Hebrew Language even though I'm still struggling to understand it.😂
Thank you for all you do.
With love from Nigeria🇳🇬

I'm getting my Hebrew Bible now!

Hey. I started teaching myself about six years ago. It takes a long time to adjust your thinking to a new set of letters and a different order of structure. All languages came out of this one, which makes it easier.

Hebrew is an ancient language with so much importance because most of the modern languages are offshoot of this great language. Alphabets of countless languages are based on Hewbrew.
Your lessons are a great source of learning and enlightenment. You are an excellent teacher with so simple yet very effective way of teaching.

The vav means "and" even though it has an "ooh" sound as in "voodoo".

That is so simple and easy to learn.
Thank you so much @hebrew for putting time and efforts to educate us about this amazing language.

@Upvote & @Resteem Done.

I love this language very much for myself I have personally started practicing myself about this language and am getting enough information on this language because I have given a good knowledge of the language to be well-presented, especially because I started reading books of a lot of authors Among them, this language is fairly well and neatly about Directions are given.

I am new to this community and I have heard many good things about you and many appreciate you. I think that you really deserve to be praised I respect you.


Thank you for the kind words. Welcome!

wow very excellent post Thanks for sharing i will done upvote.
Thanks for the hebrew this post very important lesson and useful.

Teachers are the highest quality and we all respect them.
Tou are brilliant teacher and its also great working language teaching.
I appreciate this language teaching @hebrew

Hello Sir, these two languages ​​are really beautiful. I think there is a slight difference between these two languages ​​but it is very awesome with them and thank you for discussing the language about this language. You are constantly discussing this language which really plays a very good role.

Hi sir @hebrew, how are you? hope you're fine!

I am currently researching this language and have received some guidelines. This language is very traditional, a complete language.

The dark and light language that was used in the upper cell reflects the same direction as two languages.

Sir, you are currently posting this blog with your valuable time, I really want to acquire more knowledge about this language and in future I want to work with this language.

Please Accept my sincere honor and love.

Best Regards

Every language has its own status and there is a lot of honors and receptions from the extended place. I think that the topic you discussed is very important and I am discussing this language continuously. I think this language is about one of the most important language days. Members are going to try to gain knowledge.

"tanakh" About this language I have been searching a lot more in Google and trying to know about the language and thanking you sincerely giving a great sense of language, because this language is about community members, many do not know.

Many things have been converted into the house and a lot of wards have been added. I think if we have the right idea about these things, because we have to make a right idea about when there is a matter or no matter what the matter is being done on the ground, we should respect the language And republication.

I personally like this "tanakh" language and I am trying to find out the meaning of every language in this language, hopefully I can get the right knowledge and ideas about this language in the future.

hey sir @hebrew
wow great new lesson, i'm slowly getting to know hebrew and that i experience studying my pal @hebrew

Learning Hebrew in relation to English is a wonderful experience. I am learning new words of Hebrew like vav mean and , slowly. It is also interesting to know that Hebrew have almost 50 prepositions.
I really like you way of teaching my friend @hebrew. You make your lesson very easy to understand and learn from it through wonderful and comparative study.

I love the way you take the lesson one after the other. Slowly so that everyone will understands. "the" in english is different from that in hebrew (the darkness, the light) have different spelling in hebrew. Thanks for today's class
I will look out for the next lesson

Hi dear Sir @hebrew how are you and what's going on...? I hope everything is fine there.
What a great explanation of this awesome language. I'm so impressed that how you teach and promote this language. I must appreciate your way of thinking. And you're the only onw who is promoting this language on steemit, so I believe that soon most of the people (Who do interest in this language) will learn at least basics of this great language.
Keep it up Sir and always stay blessed!
