Examples of Hebrew Words With Meanings Derived from Their Pictographs
The meaning of all Hebrew words come from the ancient pictographic (hieroglyphic) meaning of each of their letters. For example:
The Meaning of AL SHaDI (El Shaddai) in Ancient Hebrew - "Mighty Teat"
"Mighty Teat" or "Mighty Nourisher"...Continue
The Meaning of ELaLUIE (Alleluia) in Ancient Hebrew - "Make IE [Yeh] Shine Like a Star"
The phrase for "alleluia" in Ancient Hebrew means "Make IE shine like a star", or "Shine IE like a star, you people". It is pronounced in Ancient Hebrew as "ELaL-U-IE" (eh-lal-oo-yeh). It is a shortened form of the more common and reverent scriptural expression "ELaLUIEUE"...Continue
The Meaning of ISHaRaAL (Israel) in Ancient Hebrew - "AL (God) [is] Straight"
The word for "Israel", the man and nation, in Ancient Hebrew is ISHaRaAL. It is pronounced as [eesharah-al]. It means "AL (God) is straight". This name was given to IOQaB (Jacob) because he, like and for IEUE ALUEIM, remained like a cord—straight, upright and righteous after striving with both ALUEIM and humans. ISHaRaAL is a phrase name of three words which are: I (He), SHaR (cord), and AL (God) (with a default "a" between SHaR and AL). AL means God or god, but more specifically "strong authority" and is short for ALUEIM, which means Mightiest Breathing Working Older Yoked Ox.
The word ISHaRaAL has a double-a [ah] sound before the final LaM (aka lamed); because the similarly written word ISHaRaL (without a double-a) only means "straight-to" or "straight towards". There were also other instances in Ancient Hebrew where a double-a sound was required. For example: 1) DaAG [dah-ag] (sorry), 2) MaLaAK [malah-ak] (angel or messenger), 3) RaASH [rah-ash] (head), 4) BaARaTS (in land), and 5) KaASHaR (in which). If there was not a double-a in these cases they would mean: 1) DaG (fish), 2) MaLaK (king), 3) RaSH (chief), 4) BaRaTS (in potsherd/fragment), and 5) KaSHaR (prosper).
Other beings—MaLaAKIM (angels) and humans—have also had a name with AL at the end. For example: 1) GaBaRIAL (Gabriel) meaning "AL is My First-Top Strong-man/Hero", 2) MIKaAL (Michael) meaning, "AL is Might-Subduer", 3) ISHaMOAL (Ishmael) meaning, "AL, He Hears", 4) SHaMUAL (Samuel) meaning, "AL is their Lungs", 5) DaNIAL (Daniel) meaning, "AL is My Judge", and 6) ICHaZaQaAL (Ezekiel) meaning "AL He is Strong"...Continue
The Meaning of AMaN (Amen) in Ancient Hebrew - "I Affirm" or "Believe"
The word "amen" (H543) in Ancient Hebrew is AMaN [aman]. When used at the end of a prayer it means "I affirm". It is used to ask IEUE to affirm (make firm, make true and make real) what we have just said. It was a word originally used good-heartedly in prayer by the ancient Hebrews. We are not praying to a pagan deity (like "Amen Ra") unless we think of and say this word to deliberately worship a pagan deity...Continue
The Meaning of ACHUT (Sister) in Ancient Hebrew - "Protector that Bonds and Impresses"
The word for "sister" in Ancient Hebrew means "Protector that Bonds and Impresses". It is pronounced in Ancient Hebrew as "ACHUT" (ah-choot/ah-hhoot/ah-khoot)...Continue
The Meaning of PaXaCH (Passover) in Ancient Hebrew - "Hopping"
The word for Passover (H6453) in Ancient Hebrew is PaXaCH—not Pesach. It means hopping, or the "edge (of an object) being grabbed (by) a leg". "IEUE's PaXaCH" is therefore "IEUE's hopping" over the children of ISHaRaAL when He hopped over the houses in MaTSaRIM (Egypt) sparing them from the deathly plague that smote the Egyptians; and—most importantly—when He hopped over the penalty of the sins of mankind by providing the ultimate and final redemptive Lamb—IEUESHUO: who showed us how to observe PaXaCH today...Continue
The Meaning of OMaR (Omer) in Ancient Hebrew - "First of Many Grains/Eyes"
The word for "omer" (H6016) in Ancient Hebrew is OMaR. It primarily means the "first (of) many eyes". When applied to a crop it means the "first (of) many fruits" (sheaf) : because grains and other fruits have the same shape as an eye. When applied to people it means the "first man of a crowd" (the first resurrection group is also called the 144000 and five wise virgins). Grains are a type of fruit scientifically speaking (caryopses)—not nuts or seeds...Continue
The Meaning of IUM TaRUOE (Day of Trumpets) in Ancient Hebrew - "Day of Blasting Noise"
The "Day of Trumpets" should actually be called the "Day of Blasting Noise". This is because in Ancient Hebrew the phrase for the "Day of Trumpets" is "IUM [yoom] (day) TaRUOE [tarooh-oh-eh]" and TaRUOE means: the "first sign to secure, watch and lookout", ie an initial indication or alarm that was given to groups of people to secure, watch over and look-out for their family and property—in the case of an emergency, war, or a set-apart time of rejoicing. In ancient times the alarm was made by blasting a trumpet and/or a human voice. The English word "TRUmpet" comes from the Ancient Hebrew word TaRUOE. In the Book of Revelation the alarm might also be made using thunder, earthquakes, and great icy and fiery hail. The main reason why we celebrate the Day of Blasting Noise is to envision the FUTURE event when we (prayerfully) will obtain new bodies as we shout IEUE's Name, and when IEUE's period of final noisy warning of the inhabitants of the Earth will commence...Continue
The Meaning of IUM CHaPaRIM (Yom Kippur) in Ancient Hebrew - "Day of Top-Coverings for Sin"
The Ancient Hebrew phrase "IUM CHaPaRIM" [eeh-oom chapah-reem] (incorrectly known as "Yom Kipurim", "Yom Ha-Kipurim" or "Yom Kippur") means "Day [12 hours] (of) Top-Coverings for Sin".
These top-coverings on the lid of the Ark of the Covenant (Mercy Seat) used to be with animal blood every year and just for the remembrance (not forgiveness) of sin (they were "natural" and AERaNic [Aaronic]). However, the final "spiritual" top-covering on the Heavenly Ark's lid (which the Earthly ark was modelled after) was made with the better blood of the ultimate High Priest IEUESHUO MaSHICH for the forgiveness of ignorant sin once and for all. None of the High Priests before IEUESHUO actually "atoned" (enabled IEUE to forgive) themselves or the people, if they repented. The High Priests only physically covered (sprinkled) the top of the Mercy Seat lid in remembrance of their sins—and in anticipation of their hopeful FUTURE atonement (at-one-ment or at-peace-ment) with IEUE through the MaSHICH. The scapegoat only symbolised their sins being taken away.
Today on IUM CHaPaRIM we are to 1) rest, 2) humble our entire beings (not just appetites) with frown lines (mainly through: fasting for at least 36 hours [12 hours more than our regular daily night-time fasting], and meditating on IEUESHUO's atoning sacrifice and IEUE's future White Throne Judgement), and 3) gather with those of like mind...Continue
