The language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 2 #1

in hebrew •  5 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 - Genesis 2:1-3

Thes is where the word Shabbat first appears. Again, there need not be a pause in creation before the seventh day. Chapter and verse numbers added in the sixteenth century. I for one, think that chapter one ends where we ended today. Verse 2:4 clearly starts a different theme.

This week, I am reading about how God rested on the seventh day. Day is masculine. Let's take a look at, "He made him holy because on him He rested, located just before (to the right of) the word shabbat. The him refers to a day, specifically the seventh day. I capitalized He where it refers to the one who made it holy and the same one who rested. Many Latin languages have he or she for things, so Spanish speakers have a leg up understanding that, eg; la el las los.


I marked the three variations of the same structure, seventh, he rested, rest which contain "shin" and "beyt". Can you figure out some others?

I also highlighted some of the references to they, he and him as a review from when I taught about how pronouns can be attached at the end of the word relating to either verbs or nouns.


Blessed: to kneel and give a gift

To make Holy: to set apart, or differentiate

On the seventh day, YHVH gave a gift which was a new kind of day. One day of rest and reflection to remember what he had done.

Very good lesson. Interesting how Shabbat means He Rested. ... and the word Shekinah denotes when the Presence of the Lord “rested” in the sanctuary..... A paragraph in the Zohar starts: "One must prepare a comfortable seat with several cushions and embroidered covers, from all that is found in the house, like one who prepares a canopy for a bride. For the Shabbat is a queen and a bride. This is why the masters of the Mishna used to go out on the eve of Shabbat to receive her on the road, and used to say: 'Come, O bride, come, O bride!' And one must sing and rejoice at the table in her honor ... one must receive the Lady with many lighted candles, many enjoyments, beautiful clothes, and a house embellished with many fine appointments ..." The tradition of the Shekhinah as the Shabbat Bride, the Shabbat Kallah, continues to this day


Excellent. I love these connections


Me too


yeah you are right @offgridlife

Thank you for coming back sir, i was waiting for you, i massaged you privately, have you seen it ? if yes, kindly response me.

Thanks for the information of the Bible. the useful language.]]]]]]]]]]]]]
this post good topic & for the sharing'

Hebrew is a great language.You are a good expert on Hebrew language and you have gained knowledge about the Greatness of Heaven. How you constantly talk about Hebrew is really worth appreciating.

In fact, you are accurately represented every letter and alphabet of the Hebrew language and they are acquiring knowledge with more than 100 interests, I believe that if Hebrew is going on this way, Hebrew will soon be in a better language and in a current language.

That's excellent pronunciation entered best online tutorials. I really like to watch and hear Dtube video. It's perfect. Line contexts best for learning ancient language. Thanks and shabbat shalom @hebrew.

Since I was little I love reading the Bible, I come from a religious family, that's why I love this educational publication, where I can learn from the original language of the Bible. In this opportunity of genesis I see the importance in the separation of masculine and feminine, I will go further in their publications to follow more closely their studies ... Thank you for teaching us ... I gave him resteem so that others also follow this important study


Welcome to my blog. I am adding things bit by bit because nobody can learn it all at one time. When I was learning, there were no videos showing someone reading Hebrew slowly. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

Excelente post y ya preparado de una ves para recibir las lecciones que me encantan mucho,saludos.

Hebrew is a well-known and ancient language which is very well-acquainted with ancient times, and has acquired knowledge of very well about them.

People of ancient times felt very comfortable to speak Hebrew, and most of the population spoke Hebrew only and their first language was Hebrew.

In that case, I am very much interested in learning the Hebrew language. I think that you will again discuss some of the more important topics and very valuable things that will increase the knowledge and knowledge of the Hebrews.


Since European countries and American countries are not as well as the language of the Hebrew language, I think you are an important part that can be very valuable to inform everyone about Hebrew and who fully understands Hebrew.

Believe it or not I had been watching “The Bible” while your post showed in my notification app at exactly the same time when Noah was telling the seven days story. I just wanted to share it with you. I also was looking at this pic.
“הוא נח” what an amazing word !
“ביום השביעי הוא נח” what an amazing sentence with even greater history!

This is the Hebrew of Genesis the very beginning of the Bible. It is pronounced be-re-SHIYT ba-RA eh-lo-HIYM and is usually translated "In the beginning God created. The first word (reading right-to-left) is be-re-SHIYT. It is from the Hebrew root resh-aleph-shin, meaning "head, start, beginning," with the preposition bet on the front, meaning "in, on, at." So this word could be translated "in beginning" or "at start" or "at the head." The Hebrew name for the Jewish holiday Rosh HaShanah is from this same root, and means "head of the year" or "beginning of the year" -- Ha is the definite article "the" and Shanah is "year." The second word is ba-RA, meaning create, shape or fashion. It is from the Hebrew word bet-resh-aleph.
So a word-for-word translation might be "in-beginning created God

Each lesson about your language is well valued here in Steemit, it is a somewhat complicated language, but I know that with practice and more practice we can learn many words and perhaps understand much more about sentences.
