The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis #11

in hebrew •  6 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 I had guests and spent the day before sunset creating a meal including home made challah, fish, and vegetables served with wine. I truly relaxed during shabbat.

This week's reading is from Genesis 1:22-23

We are in the fourth day as God blesses the creatures in the waters and the birds telling them to multiply and fill the earth.

There is a plan, and there is an end in that plan. He said, "Fill the the waters and in the seas and let the birds multiply on the earth." I see no problem with that continuing until the end.

Them and You

In this reading we see the direct object, or the receiver of the action (the blessing), "and he blessed --them..." (oh-tam). When the direct object is a represented by a pronoun, you see a long dash indicating the object of the verb.

Normally the you and they as the subject are part of each word that each are doing, which is represented by the ending "vav" marked with a dot (shoorook) to the left. In this passage...

  • be fuitful - p'roo
  • and multiply - oor'voo
  • and fill - oo-mee-l'oo

These are commands but you will see that a vav+shoorook at the end of a word can be you, your, they or their as interpreted in English. The vav is also "and" at the beginning in these cases.

I am experimenting with trying to produce written Hebrew using a stylus, but it's not the same. At some point, I may have writing practice. What do you think?

If you have been with me from the beginning, you should be able to read on your own, maybe with some mistakes. But you can start practicing and building vocabulary. I am reading a little faster and pointing less each week. I hope you are too.

Here are the links

Please click over to DTube and read the above passage with me in Hebrew.

This looks difficult for me at first, but with your gentle way of teaching sir @hebrew, I think am getting to know it gradually and now I'm having full interest. You have been a wonderful teacher sir and a great motivator.

You have tried to give us knowledge of a specific Hebrew about the subject above. I think Hebrew is a very good language, only ordinary people do not know about this language, so everyone does not know any value of this language.

I am very happy to say to you that you have considered each and every one of the above material very accurately and you have presented the appropriate vinyl topics in Hebrew. I think that if we give some labor in this language we will be able to achieve this very good knowledge.

Excelente lección muy interesante aprender este idioma aunque es un poco complicado para mi, pero hay un dicho que dice que el que persevera vence, siempre he tenido la curiosidad de este tipo de idiomas y escritura, pero poco a poco iré aprendiendo,Gracias por la enseñanza que nos da a esta maravillosa plataforma.

A very interesting lesson, and this baked bread, charity comes from him. Thank you for the hard work for us.


@hebrew sir i'm new here, hopefully i will get good response from you.
now i can learn @hebrew easily with your guidance.

Thank you for the lesson I'm waiting for it every Saturday. It's very interesting to learn the history of your language.

Shabbat Shalom. Another very good Hebrew Lesson.

excellent @hebrew. I loved your previous post, "creatures among others". but this publication today is great, every time I learn these interesting topics, another thing, the bread looks delicious, thank you for not stopping teaching us always.

Learning languages is a combination of reading, speaking, listening, understanding and vocabulary.

Agree! The best way to learn Hebrew language is to actually spend time among people speaking Hebrew. That’s the way I learned my second language. Also read, watch tv... And the most important is the motivation and willingness to learn. One thing that caught my eye and I’m curious how do you call on materialistic things if you only use she or he instead of it? I also noticed no word for word translation in many languages. I guess that’s what makes it the most difficult in language learning. Great post though!


You do the same as in Spanish or other languages with gender.

"Una abeja vino a investigar lo que estaba comiendo y ella me picó."

Saying, 'ella' is the word "it" but a feminine thing that bit me. The same is seen in the Tanakh we use.

and it was evening...


God's plan for us to multiply was perfect, if only man had not sinned.

It's nice to see and read your teachings sir.
Happy Sunday in advance... And if i might say, that is a very delicious looking bread.


according to the chapter you taught and mentioned above, God blessed all that he created, he said be fruitful, multiply and fill the earth. God blessings are rich and it adds no sorrow, whatever he says in his word must come to pass.

Those blessings he blessed those creatures of the air and sea is still today very much active and we can testify to that. Thank you @hebrew for another wonderful word of God, you have really explained those words to everyone's understanding. Thanks for your support, I really appreciate it and may God continue to bless you. Happy Sunday to you.

Fruitful, multiply and fill are three important words that exhibit the big heart of God to bless us. Looking at them in the Hebrew perspective can bring a lot of meaning in a different dimension. Thanks for your great highlights of certain important reminders about God's plan for us.

Well, the wonderful teacher @hebrew I am convinced that because of your kind and attractive teaching style I have learnt a few basics words of this wonderful and an ancient language #Hebrew. Being a student of Cultural studies it is quite important for me to learn different languages to get grip on my subject, yes Hebrew is among my most favorite languages. I am so lucky that I found a Teacher like you who explains the things in a very expressive way. Massive respect for you <3

Stay Blessed :)

אוכל טעים מאוד ידידי היקר ו לברך lesson.I שמח לקרוא את ההודעה שלך ואת תיאור טוב שם @ hebrew. אני אוהב את השפה שלך מאוד ואתה עושה עבודה טובה מאוד.

You are are a good chef as well sir.☺ Looking really nice.👌 Thanks for today's lesson sir @hebrew.😊

Since I follow you, I have been interested in these topics, it is a bit difficult for me to understand, but I assure you that with each publication I am learning something, you are very good, teaching thanks for sharing your knowledge, I hope for your next publication.

its a special langauge, i know sonething from here, thanks for share this post & i hope you always continue your post

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..

Hello Sir, Thank you very much for writing a very nice language about your blog posts, I think that Hebrew is a very nice language that every community of people is not aware of right now.

Presently the discussion of cryptocurrency is always discussed in the community but here you are presenting a great language which is very interesting to me because I love your Hebrew language and I started researching this language myself 📌

The above topics discussed in Hebrew languages are very valuable because you are an expert personality and you have gained enough knowledge of the Hebrew language. You are a specific personality through which we hope to have accurate information about language 😊

@hebrew - Sir while you were busy your effort to make this article is really appreciate... Very useful video Sir...


Love the language for being one of the oldest and one of the most complete languages. Thanks for taking a step and trying to teach steemians.
Peace be upon him who follows true guidance.


i think this matter was really good!

I’ve already learned a lot from you about this one of the oldest languages of all. It so unique the use of a different alphabet and the right to left direction for reading and writing. With English having to use much more words then Hebrew makes me think it actualy may not be that difficult at al. I still consider it an art language. I do now understand that “vav” on the left combined with “shoorook” at the end of a word can mean as you, your, they or their in English. It’s tough, I had to readi few times to get it a bit. I hope I didn’t mess up.

Another informative Ivrit language post @hebrew. Everyone now studying more time those ancient language.
Shabbat Shalom

I am very glad to continue our study of Hebrew, this ancient and beautiful language. @Hebrew is quite an amazing language & now i am trying to learn it. I can actually start to read few words now. Thank you so much for taking the time to post this knowledge. Circling the letters like that really makes it clear.

@Upvoted & @Resteemed.

Hiii Respected Friend Shabbat Shalom / @hebrew, How are you and hows life going on. I hope your are fine and enjoying your life in peace. My prayers and best wishes for you.GOD bless you. first of all sorry for late comment here, actually i am ill and not feeling well so i could not follow your post in time. Now I am a little better so i commented here. I impressed with your passion for this historical holly language to promote an awareness here through steemit to whole world. many peoples who did not know about even the name of this language now also know about it due to your countless efforts and dedications. your way of teaching is also extraordinary. Today lesson about "The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis #11." is also impressive . Your contribution with DTube Hebrew reading & language series is awesome. I hope for your more success in this project.
Your Braided Bread is looking in picture so delicious and simple, really good effort.


My videos would be longer if I were not a bit timid. I have no problem with songs, but I was never good at reading aloud.
The fish came out well too. Breaded may have held together better but I am experimenting with olive oil and chives lately.

This is compelling and superb. I'm just getting to know about the ancient language of Ivirit for the first time.

Wow you can cook well! That braided bread seems to be delicious! Thank you for sharing this great Hebrew lesson too!

Shabbat Shalom~

This week I had guests and spent the day before sunset creating a meal including home made challah, fish, and vegetables served with wine. I truly relaxed during shabbat...

👍! The bread looks very delicious.
Great lesson to learn new words such as “oh-tam” and the meaning of vav+shoorook.
... to produce written Hebrew using a stylus? I believe we are all up to new ideas.

It's glad to received nice time better lesson. Well description there @hebrew. You showing great points to well studying. I'm totally surprised your description style @hebrew. God bless you and have a nice day.

That would be most interesting learning lesson indeed Dtube video pronunciation @hebrew. Definitely video conversation awesome for leaning much better. Most powerful introduction there. Thanks to you @hebrew. Shabbat Shalom.


I will try to overcome my shy tendencies and do one on pronunciation. I am not very well equipped for video making and editing. True though. I explained pronunciation in my blog using text. Video would be better.

I'm blessed
Reading this gives me more assurance in Yahweh that he has a plan for me and I Must live in the reality of that plan.
@hebrew you're a good cook, if you can start teaching a series about cooking those food too, it would be lovely. That's on a lighter mood.
Now I'm adding to my knowledge
Sabbath shallom

I have always wanted to learn Hebrew because it is ancient and the language of the chosen people. I'll be a regular caller fron now on. Stay blessed.

A Hebrew Bible manuscript is a handwritten copy of a portion of the text of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) made on papyrus, parchment, or paper, and written in the Hebrew language. (Some of the Biblical text and notations may be in Aramaic.) The oldest manuscripts were written in a form of scroll, the medieval manuscripts usually were written in a form of codex. The late manuscripts written after the 9th century use the Masoretic Text.


Leningrad Codex text sample, portions of Exodus 15:21-16:3

@Upvoted & @Resteemed.


I love the script they use in the Leningrad Codex. Each variance is like a different font but all are understandable. Thanks

Thanks dear Sir @hebrew for a great initiative. Indeed you're teaching a very important and most difficult language in the UNIVERSE. And in this regard so far, you have done tremendous job. Your dtube videos are free ACADEMY for those people who wanted to learn this language but they don't had any opportunity. Please carry on with this project and Always Keep Smiling. Stay Blessed!

Sir @hebrew again with a wonderful informative language, i was waitung for your lecture sir

a wonderful day with your friends and useful lessons.

Thanks for the Hebrew this post very important lesson and useful.
your good work and great work
For your post propagation.

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.

You are a great teacher for your religion.thanks

@hebrew, Another successful Dtube and contents tutorial who want to follow Ivrit language. This tutorial very cleverly introducing. Easy to understand better. Nice effort and you're a greatest teacher in this platform.


Another great post by great @hebrew sir.There is something completely new i have learned from this post.Sir your post making me interested in hebrew language.I am also searching through wiki about tanakh.This is what i got about it.The Tanakh consists of twenty-four books: it counts as one book each Samuel, Kings, Chronicles and Ezra–Nehemiah and counts the Twelve Minor Prophets (תרי עשר) as a single book. In Hebrew, the books are often referred to by their prominent first word(s).I also learned that every thing count in gender.You have to call it by he or she.Thank's for such educative and informative post.@upvoted and resteemed.
