Since using a Complete Jewish Bible (CJB), I've been learning more Hebrew words here and there.

First, God's name, ADONAI, is used this way. Then people's original names like Matthew, I've now learned, is Mattityahu, Peter is Kefa... and the Pharisees and Sadducees are really P'rushim and Tz'dukim.

How would you like to know more about Hebrew words and language? What are talmidim, tzara'at, cohanan? [will not italicize them all now!] You can give the English translation, and may write the passage where your chosen words came from too.

I'm about to sleep a bit, but I'll come back later...
So, is this thread about everyone posting Hebrew words, favorite/interesting or recently learned? Or what are the game rules? Do you give "homework" to the next poster?

All of the Hebrew you have cited here are not translations, they are transliterations. They may actully be translated into English, French, Spanish, Greek, Chinese, Russian and allother languages.

I have read the Word in Hebrew, and it is, for me, a wonderful experience, but as long as the individual is led by the Holy Spirit, he or she will be given the entire truth from a cookbook, if it is our FAther's will.

In the name of elohim was created the heaven and the earth.

Here the haertz (m spelling) it means the land. Israel today refers to itself as the Eretz Israel......land of Israel.

The word for earth can be olam, however sometimes Baruch Hashem "ad olam" means praise God forever.. olam with ad before it..…….of course these are transliterations..I am very slow typing in Hebrew these days….


God bless you my family. Oh, you susrrised me in a most pleasant manner.

Thank you for clarifying things, jaume! And here's what transliteration is:=)

Transliteration is the process of transferring a word from the alphabet of one language to another. Transliteration helps people pronounce words and names in foreign languages.

Unlike a translation, which tells you the meaning of a word that's written in another language, a transliteration only gives you an idea of how the word is pronounced, by putting it in a familiar alphabet. It changes the letters from the word's original alphabet to similar-sounding letters in a different one. In Hebrew, the Jewish winter holiday is חנוכה. Its English transliteration is Hanukkah or Chanukah.

For us who havent really learned or can learn Hebrew now, i hope this is a step closer to learning abt the original Hebrew.

No strict game rules.. just a place to share some of those precious words and what we're learning from these. We can give homework to the others tho=)).

Btw, sorry abt cohanan, which should be cohanim. I meant to check actual word sp. before posting, but realized i havent after i've logged out and left.

Cohen, also spelled kohen (Hebrew: “priest”), plural cohanim, or cohens, Jewish priest, one who is a descendant of Zadok, founder of the priesthood of of Jerusalem when the First Temple was built by Solomon (10th century BC) and through Zadok related to Aaron, the first Jewish priest, who was appointed to that office by his younger brother, Moses.

Yes, it would be mostly transliterations after all. Here are some:

Yochanan - John, meaning "Yahweh is gracious."
Yerushalayim - Jerusalem
Havah - Eve, meaning "life/life-bearer" (Genesis 3.20)

Shalom may bean many things, peace, health and general welfare among other meanings. Today in modern Hebrew Israelíes greet each other with (for a man) Ma shlom cha...The Shlom is a contraction of Shalom. This si why shalom is such a nice word from our Savior to us. My shalom I leave with you...

When the Jebusites dwelled in what is now Jerusalem, it was simply Urushalaim, or city of peace. When our Father chose Urushalaim, it becam Yahurushalaim or Jerusalem, city of Yahweh's peace.

Thanks for yet another share...

Today i came across matzah= unleavened bread.

Also in Exod. 6.2-3, Shaddai, often occur with El, used independently as a name of God, mainly in book of Job. Commonly rendered 'the Almighty,' the Hebrew root shadad, from which it's been derived means 'to overpower, to treat with violence..." and it is possible that the original significance was that of 'overpowering strength.' (from CJB Study Bible)
