The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis #13

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 covers Genesis 1:23-25.

This week's reading is from Genesis 1:26-28 and God(plural), "he" said let "us" make "adam" in "our" own image. No comment on this soup of mixed plural/singular verbage. There are plenty of volumes written about the meaning of "Elohim" and "elohim". Yes,it does say "let us make adam in our own image". Let's read the verses and then go back and interpret each and learn how the word order changes to bring the verse into English.

Today brings more pieces of the puzzle that is each word. We look at how the owner of each thing (noun), or receiver of each action (verb) is built into the word. If you have been following along, you have seen that we attach and, in, over, and the at the beginning of words. We are now learning our and us can be attached at the end which is new. [green boxes]


Many other words are marked above as a review. You see that prepositions (in, on, over, etc.) are marked but are not translated one for one as explained in earlier lessons. For review, I have marked the words and, so, and the with colored dots next to their Hebrew equals.

More explanations.

I am putting more detail into the videos My intention was to identify the vowels in each word and their sounds. Then say the word drawing the order in which to join every letter and vowel. Then say the word fluently.

For now I am ignoring cantillation marks and other notations. We can concentrate on intonation after you are reading! The definitions are all there and the word order is something you will get used to when you are able to read and compare verses. The ability to learn on your own is one of my goals for you.

Mistakes: I know how to press record, then stop when I am done. I do not know much about editing. I know there are several unintended errors. Please excuse them.

We will be finishing the first chapter of Genesis soon!

This is pretty cool! The first milestone.

If you are just starting, my lessons are all here starting at Alef, adding vowels (the dots and lines) as we go, the sofit formations and numerical values. Just go to my blog and scroll to the bottom or click here

A great article and an excellent lesson for me, your video gives me a more in-depth understanding of Hebrew and it's great that you are doing such a noble job as giving us the opportunity to learn more about your beautiful language! Thank you @hebrew Resteem

This is a very valuable article.We are very useful in learning the language.
Thank you for great writing experience.


This week covers Genesis 1:23-25.
This week's reading is from Genesis 1:26-28 and God(plural), "he" said let "us" make "adam" in "our" own image. No comment on this soup of mixed plural/singular verbage.

This particular line caught my attention, and I believe God who is the "He" in the content of the above scripture said let us make Adam in "OUR" own image, I believe the our there,he was referring to Himself as God the father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit and he made man purely out of their image so man is exactly like what dey look like.

Thank you sir @hebrew for yet another wonderful insight into the word of God and thanks for always keeping us in close contact with God by bringing his word to us on the regular bases. The hebrew language is really a great, ancient and beautiful language.

I really like the way you teach us word by word, i'm following from a while, you are good sir,
Thank you for teaching us @hebrew, God bless you.

excellent, a very complicated language, but when you follow each publication every Friday, you make me easier to understand, thanks for continuing to teach us teacher @ Hebrew

Genesis ends with Israel in Egypt, ready for the coming of Moses and the Exodus. The narrative is punctuated by a series of covenants with God, successively narrowing in scope from all mankind (the covenant with Noah) to a special relationship with one people alone (Abraham and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob).

peculiarity of this verb is that it is always used with God as its subject, meaning that only God can "bara"; it is the characteristic verb for God's creative activity in Genesis 1.

Thanks @hebrew sir for sharing this post. ☺💙

Hebrew is a oldest and beautiful langauage and when its comes from an expert like you its very interesting to learn and easy to understand...The sound rule of Hebrew is quite different but once we learn we can pronounce others language words more fluently due to practice of Hebrew Prounciation...Its not easy to learn but not even hard if I have some one like you to teach...It was very helpful for learning and am still trying to learn it....Keep on posting and teaching us @hebrew

I’m always curious about hebrew language its interesting and unique language which is quite famous I found you I’m really thanks that I’m learning hebrew language from you.keep following you and learning from you.
Thanks for sharing really appreciated..

This definitely adds a little context to the way I was told the exodus story, I can’t wait to have a greater understanding of more of the text.

Indeed a very useful stuff. I can't believe that someone spare his time for Mankind without any curse. Now a days time is very important thing which can not be given anyone without any benefit. But you proved @hebrew that in this world there are few humans available who are doing this service for common people to facilitate the. Anyways always keep smiling and Stay Blessed!

Your age is very long, I was remembering you some minutes ago . Shabbat shalom

Great lesson and important language."Genesis " and they are presented is valuable. Great Work sir.
Thanks @hebrew
Have a great day

I'll admit that I haven't learned a language yet that is symbol-based, so it's a little difficult for me to pick it up, but some of the things I'm starting to recognize as having seen before. If nothing else, I appreciate the chance to learn more about the word and how it was written. Sometimes it can be easy to skim over verses as I've probably heard or read them many times. It's nice to get a difference translation/interpretation to get a different, sometimes clearer explanation or understanding of the meaning.

I don't know if you've heard of The Passion Translation, but that's one that was just gifted to me by a good friend. I already had the Passion translation of Song of Songs, but this is the whole New Testament plus Song of Songs, Psalms, and Proverbs. I like how the translation is so passionate. The interpreters did a good job of communicating (I believe) the heart of God through the words.

Having a clear understanding of His heart has been needed for me recently as the last month plus has been very trying for my family. I won't get into the issues, but having a clear idea of who you are and whose you are is helpful in the tough times. Knowing God's heart for me helps me know where I stand with Him. Also, good friends and family encouraging help too!


I agree that most interpretations are well done and they do represent the heart of the Father. I see many of the stories being difficult to mess up. There are parables that anyone who wants to can understand. Most gripping, as a father myself, is that of Job. It starts with the Father boasting about his "servant Job" talking about how upright he is, then the trials that were allowed to fall upon him, then God speaking directly to him with 80 plus questions like, "Can you put a hook in leviathan's jaw?"

I watch my young teens do incredibly stupid things, yet they mean no harm. I still see them as good kids and boast about them. However, when I see them doing something that will result in harm, I draw the line and put a stop to it. Other times, I simply redirect them so that they can learn from their mistakes.

God is a loving Father - His word directs us. . .


It sounds like you're a really good father. You watch over your children so they don't get into too much trouble, but you let them make mistakes so they can learn.

I've been doing this a while, but sometimes I still think that God must consider me like a child with some of the stunts that I pull. He probably scratches His head and says, "I don't know. I'm all all-knowing God, but I just don't know." Ha ha. He's loving and patient though, so even when we make mistakes, He welcomes us back. I like that part a lot. The important part isn't the lack of mistakes, but instead it's that when we make mistakes that we own up to them, ask for forgiveness, and try to learn from them as we walk away from the mistakes. And if we mess up again, we just get to try again.

Hebrew is such a great language!!!Thanks for sharing.
It is valuable and very useful ancient language.Upvote Resteem1200x630bb.jpg

ובכן, אנחנו ממשיכים עם המחקר של ההגייה של תנועות, מילים נושא ופעלים. זה כמו ללכת לבית הספר היסודי הראשון אנחנו מרגישים balbucenates עבור דרישה זו כדי למחות.
אני חושב שזה יהיה קל וגם לקרוא מה כל אחד מאיתנו אומרים.

מצוין בכתב

Awesome Tube! Dedicated teaching makes learning cooperative to create a desire to continue studying, it is remarkable. Have a beautiful day!

Identifying vowels with their sound is the real take from this article @hebrew sir. You are just like my teacher and am greatly influenced by the presentation of know-how of this language by you. Cheers...

A weekly greatly valued lesson of Hebrew. It is definitely useful to understand the bible better and have a few words standby if we ever visit Israel. It is really one of the favourite place for visit by my church where each year we have organised many trips and it is still very popular with high subscription for the Israel tour to see and experience the different bible histories at different places of Israel. Thanks for your continual effort in this!


Like Assad in Syria, they have been tolerant of all religions and allowed all to worship as they like. I hope to visit there one day.


Most welcome to steemit sir.

Great lesson of Hebrew language.thanks for sharing. very useful information.
100% like and resteem.

Steemit has brought amazing talents but what i am seeing is the best you really deserve this credit.

This is cool time to get some idea about ancient language thanks a lot sir,have a nice day hope i can see you soon.

This is wonderful sir,following your blog from weeks this is my best place to spend my time in steemit,you are really amazing sir.

Good and intresting character of this language . I am new on your blog so I can't recognize. Shabbat shalom.

It is important to identify in the reading methods the vowels and their sounds, I am a teacher and it is one of the ways to teach children to read. It is good that with the Bible and the message of God we can also achieve it and with it we are bringing the little ones closer to the knowledge of the Word of God. Thanks for the input.
It is very true what the great pedagogues say, we all have the ability to learn, that is self-learning, self-regulating what we learn. A hug.

Where I am now it is impossible for me to watch the video because of the bandwidth available to me, which I regret very much, however I get excited when reading what you publish, I can not wait until I have my broadband internet again to watch the videos. My native language is Spanish, the word used in our Bibles is generally God, but I understand that the original Hebrew sometimes makes a difference to a plural word which is the one you now mention Elohim to a singular one, so the interpretation tends not to be correct when we read in my native language. That's why I am very interested in learning the original language, thank you for uploading these courses for beginners like me!

anxiously waiting on Friday to continue learning from the teacher @hebrew, what interesting topic today, i, and I am still learning, revising verbs and nouns, I will practice this to understand more, thank you for your teachings.

Intresting character of this language . I am new on your blog so I can't recognize.
Shabbat shalom.
