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.
We are reading Genesis 2:10-13
These next few readings are describing the garden. Today he talks about a river flowing out from the garden and splitting into four. Many have looked for the Pishon so they could find the land of Havilah where, "there is gold and the gold of the land is good." Recently there was a gold find near Israel where the gold is the purest found. Yehudah Glick has the mineral rights to mine it for the third temple. I wonder if that is in the land of Havilah.
We are looking at the words gold (hazav), river (nahar), and also the difference between there (sham) and name (shem) because they look very similar.
Here is today's reading
The readings are kept short because upload times for a two-minute video are in excess of three hours at DTube. I cannot reasonably make longer videos. As I write this times seem to have improved this week - half done at thirty-minutes.
There is at least one mistake: "he divided" is pronounced yee-pah-red
