Shadows of Messiah – Etymology

All languages trace back to Hebrew.  According to the Holy Scriptures, all peoples spoke one language until the Tower of Babel when the languages were confused (Genesis 11:1). In the end there shall be one language again (Zephaniah 3:9).  What language will this be?  Many who have studied the origin of language believe this will be Hebrew.  This study of the origin of all languages tracing back to Hebrew is called Edenics. (See Edenics.org)

The Hebrew language points to the Word, who is Messiah.  Each letter of the Hebrew Aleph-Bet, and each word in Hebrew points to Messiah.  Hence, every word of every language points to Messiah.  It is harder to see Him in English, or German or French than it is in the pure waters of Hebrew but He is seen nevertheless.

Book of Sirach Prologue

“Wherefore, let me entreat you to read it with favor and attention, and to pardon us, wherein we may seem to come shore of some words which we have labored to interpret.  For the same things uttered in Hebrew, and translated into another tongue, have not the same force in them: and not only these things, but the Law itself, and the Prophets , and the rest of the books, have no small difference, when they are spoken in their own language.”

1611 AV translators

“Againe they were not out of the Hebrew fountain (wee speake of the Latine Translations of the Old Testament) but out of the Greeke streame, therefore the Greeke being not altogether cleare, the Laitine deriued from it must needs be muddie.”

Isaac Newton – The Language of the Prophets pg 14

“He that would understand a book written in a strange language must first learn the language…Such a language was that wherein the Prophets wrote, and the want of sufficient skill in that language is the main reason why they are so little understood.  John did not write in one language, Daniel in another, Isaiah in a third and the rest in others peculiar themselves, but they all write in one and the same mystical language…For the language of the Prophets, being Hieroglyphical, had affinity with that of the Egyptian priest and Eastern wise men, and therefore was anciently much better understood in the East than it is now in the West.  I received also much light in this search by the analogy between the world natural and the world polictic.  For the mystical language was founded in this analogy, and will be best understood by considering its original.”

The Hebrew word for the Hebrew language is עברית ‘ivrit.’  עברית ‘ivrit’ comes from the root בר ‘bar’ which means ‘pure.’  Hebrew breaks down pictographically as thus:

ע ayin means to see
בר bet-resh is the word for Son
י yod is a hand
ת tav is a cross

The pictographs of the word עברית ‘ivrit’ means to ‘see the Son with hands on the cross.’  The Hebrew language was designed to reveal the Gospel.  It is through the work of Messiah on the cross that all mankind is brought back to the Father (Zephaniah 3:9).

Εtymology comes from the Greek word ἔτυμος ‘etymos’ which means truth, real or actual.  Etymology is the study of the origin of words and their true meaning.  Ultimately every word in every language traces back via Etymology to the original language of Eden.  ‘Etymos’ comes from the Hebrew word אמת ‘emet’ which means truth.

Who is the Truth?
Joh 14:6  Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

אמת ‘emet’ comes from the root word מנ ‘man.’  מ ‘Mem’ is the picture of waters and the נ ‘Nun’ is the picture of a seed or something living.  Hence, מנ, has the meaning of living waters.

Who is the Living Waters?

Joh 4:10  Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
Joh 4:11  The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
Joh 4:12  Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
Joh 4:13  Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
Joh 4:14  But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
Joh 7:37  In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink.
Joh 7:38  He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Joh 7:39  (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)

Jer 2:13  For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
Jer 17:13  O LORD, the hope {H4723 mikveh=collection of water/pool…baptism} of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth (John 8), because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.

Isa 12:2  Behold, God is my salvation {H3444}; I will trust, and not be afraid: for Yah YHWH  is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation {H3444}.
Isa 12:3  Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation {H3444}.

H3444 ישׁוּעה yeshû‛âh
salvation, deliverance

Psa 36:7  How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.
Psa 36:8  They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of thy house; and thou shalt make them drink of the river of thy pleasures {H5730 עדן‛eden}
Psa 36:9  For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

The word fountain in Psalm 36:9 is from the Hebrew word מקור ‘maqor’ which has the meaning of a spring that comes from a hole.  It is also used of blood, such as the blood that came forth from the Messiah on the tree (1John 5:6-8).  This is significant as Etymology traces back to the original language of Eden which brings unity to man.  It is through the work of Messiah on the cross that unifies mankind and draws us back to the Father.  This will be seen in more detail below in the section on gathering.  The blood – etymology link is seen above via the word מנ which means living waters/blood.

The Light and Life mention in Psalm 36 are linked together through Messiah, as seen in John 1.  Life, light and living waters is seen linked together in more detail in the study on Messiah in Torah: Genesis 1:2-5 click here.

Joh 1:4  In Him was life, and the life was the light of men;

The pure living waters of language is the Hebrew spoken in Eden.  Every language on earth springs forth from this fountain.

1611 AV translators
“Againe they were not out of the Hebrew fountain (wee speake of the Latine Translations of the Old Testament) but out of the Greeke streame, therefore the Greeke being not altogether cleare, the Laitine deriued from it must needs be muddie.”

The Way, the Truth, the Life

Joh 14:6  Jesus said to him, I am the Wayclick here, and the Truthclick here, and the Lifeclick here. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Etymology is the path of Truth who is defined as Messiah, the Word.  Life is linked to the Word via the mouth.  The different parts of the mouth are linked to language as words come forth from our mouths and the parts therein.  The Hebrew word for mouth, lips, tongue and throat are all translated in one way or another in relation to language, speech or communication.

When studying ancient Hebrew, the concept of life is seen through two ways.  A full stomach, from whence comes the word for life חי ‘chay’ and the breath of the Most High(Genesis 2:7).  In the human body these two work together.  Both food and air travel down the throat to their respective destinations of the stomach and lungs.  The oxygen that enters our lungs is transported into the blood which is then used to extract energy from the food that is digested/broken down in our stomachs and intestines.  This is interesting to note as the word truth in Hebrew, אמת ‘emet’, comes from מנ ‘man’ which means living waters, in specific the blood. מנ ‘man’ is also linked to DNA which is an amazing picture of language/the Word.  מנ is also the word for ‘manna’ which Messiah defined as Himself (John 6:30-63).  This manna was described as the Word in Exodus 16:4.

The matter of a day in its day ‘davar-yom b’yom’

Exo 16:4  ויאמר יהוה אל־משׁה הנני ממטיר לכם לחם מן־השׁמים ויצא העם ולקטו דבר־יום ביומו למען אנסנו הילך בתורתי אם־לא׃

Bread=Torah/Word
Psa 102:4  My heart is stricken and dried like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.
TARGUM
5.     My heart is smitten like grass and will dry up; for I have forgotten the Torah of my instruction.

Deu 8:3  And He has humbled you, and caused you to hunger, and caused you to eat the manna, which you had not known, and your fathers had not known, in order to cause you to know that man shall not live by bread alone, but man shall live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of YHWH.
Mat 4:2  And having fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards He hungered.
Mat 4:3  And coming near to Him, the Tempter said, If You are the Son of God, speak that these stones may become loaves.
Mat 4:4  But answering, He said, It has been written: “Man shall not live by bread alone, but on every Word going out of the mouth of God.”

Bread = food

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
The loaf of bread is Thus made to include everything and, for this reason also, it may fitly be spoken of as synonymous with food in general. To the disciples of Jesus, no doubt, “Give us this day our daily bread” would naturally be a petition for all needed food, and in the case of the miraculous feeding of the multitude it was enough to provide them with “bread” (Mat_14:15).

The mouth is used for eating, and speaking as well as a third less used function of kissing.  The word in Hebrew for kiss is to draw near to another.  This can be used in the concept of love or war.   Amazingly, it is language in Scripture that is linked to unity and gathering together of peoples (Zephaniah 3:9).  Truth, אמת ‘emet,’ which comes from מן ‘man’ meaning living waters is even more fascinating as a collection of peoples is pictured as waters in  Scripture (Psalm 65:7; Isaiah 17:12-13; Revelation 17:15).  His voice is as many waters (Revelation 1:15). He is the Shepherd whose voice collects the sheep(John 10:14-16).

Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.

Interestingly the word for unison traces back to ‘son’ the root of sound.

Is it just coincidence that ‘consonant’ comes from the same root ‘son’ in English?  Could it also be coincidence that the Hebrew alphabet is made up of all consonants?  This same Hebrew alphabet that makes up the Word.  The Word that became flesh and dwelt among us. Is this why Zephaniah prophesied that the clear lip of Hebrew would be returned to us (Zephaniah 3:9)?

Rom 15:6  that with one accord and with one mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

What does the English word accord trace back to?   Accordare (Italian) “to attune an instrument” and Latin. accordare “make agree,” lit. “be of one heart.  Again a reference to being born again or circumcision of the heart.  How is the heart circumcised?  Through the Word (Hebrew 4:12; Luke 24:31-32; Acts 2:37; Jeremiah 32:39-40).  It is through this circumcision/entering of the Word that Light comes forth (Psalm 119:130)

The Hebrew word circumcision comes from:

מול comes from the root:

Or it could be said ConSONants brought together to form Words.  Each of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet have different meanings since Hebrew is a pictographic language.  Different parts come together to form the Word.  Just as different parts of the Tabernacle, which had different functions came together to become ONE (Exodus 36:13).

1Co 12:12  For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.
1Co 12:13  For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
1Co 12:14  For the body is not one member, but many.

Light & Light

Light (not heavy) and light (illumination) are related
Lungs, Light & Water…

The eternal organs in our bodies are a shadow picture of the Kingdom click here.  Our bodies are His Temple (Ephesians 2:21-22; 5:30; 1 Corinthians 6:19).   In the book of Revelation (Chapter 4) John is shown a vision of the Throne of Elohim.  When our hearts are circumcised (Deuteronomy 10:15; 30:6; Jeremiah 32:39-40; Ezekiel 11:19-20, Colossians 2:11-13; Hebrews 4:11-14; Luke 24:31-32)  Elohim is enthroned (Romans 10:8-10).  Around His throne are 4 living creatures (Revelation 4:6) which represents the 4 chambers of the human heart.  Around the throne and the 4 living creatures are 24 elders (Revelation 4:4) representing the 24 ribs surrounding the human heart.  From the heart blood is pumped to the Lungs.  As seen above the etymology of the English word ‘Lung’ traces back to the meaning of Light.  In our bodies our lungs have 7 vascular bundles called nodes.  These represent the 7 Spirits of Elohim (Revelation 4:5; Isaiah 11:1-3).  These 7 Spirits/Ruach/Breathe are pictured in the earthly Tabernacle/Temple by the Menorah.  The Menorah is a picture of the Tree of Life.  The Light of the world.  It should come as no surprise that all words in every language come forth from 7 sounds made by the mouth.  The crucifixion displayed the Menorah, which is appropriate as the Menorah was made of ONE beaten piece of gold showing the body of Messiah is ONE.  More on this below…

Clear lip

Zep 3:9  For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.

The word for pure is ברר which is speaking of soap that was made from stalks of grain (בר).  It gives the sense of something that is cleaned and purified.  The one language in the beginning, which was mixed and confused will be put back together again.  This is what the Hebrew word for turn, הפך,  means.  It has the literal meaning of a flask that is turned upside down to pour out the contents thereof.  Here is a picture of a liquid in a container that is mixed and mingled which is turned upside down and poured out so that everything is moving in the same path.  Interestingly, the flask was usually made of a horn (a shofar).  It is no surprise that unity comes forth from the Voice of Yahshua which is likened to a shofar(Revelation 1:10).

The word for language in Zephaniah 3 is ספה which means the lips.  It also has the idea of gathering or the edge of a body of water.  Here is another connection between language and water.  The languages of mankind which are muddied and mixed will become pure and clear.

This purifying of language is done so that we may call upon and serve YHWH in unity.  ‘One consent.’  The word for consent here is שכם which literally means the shoulder.

This is interesting as the Messiah, the Word, is likened to the Arm of YHWH (Isaiah 53:1).  The bones of the human arm and hand are a picture of the Word. The hand as Messiah is specifically described as the ‘Hand’ of YHWH (Psalm 118:14-16; Isaiah 48:13; Acts 5:31 etc.). The human hand consists of 27 bones which correspond to the 27 books of the New Testament. These bones are divided into 3 parts. 5 metacarpal bones of the palm corresponding to the Gospels & Revelation. 14 bones of the fingers corresponding to the epistles of Paul and 8 bones in the wrist corresponding to the epistles of the other Apostles…The hand is connected to the three bones of the Arm (Isaiah 40:10; 63:5-8; Psalm 44:3; Deuteronomy 33:2 etc.) which correspond to the Torah, Prophets & Writings. The arm connects to the shoulder of which we are yoked to the Most High (Matthew 11:30), walking in one consent (Zephaniah 3:9).

Further, the 27 bones of the hand connect to 3 bones in the arm which equals 30.  30 bones in each arm and hand add up to 60.  This is amazing has the arms connect to the shoulders which consist of the 2 shoulder bones themselves that are connected to 2 clavicles and 2 scapulas which =6.  60+6= 66…the exact number of books in the Bible!

The Hebrew word for the Hebrew language is עברית ‘ivrit.’  עברית comes from the root בר which means ‘pure.’  Hebrew breaks down pictographically as thus:
ע ayin means to see
בר bet-resh is the word for Son
י yod is a hand
ת tav is a cross
The pictographs of the word ‘ivrit’ means to ‘see the Son with hands on the cross.’  The Hebrew language was designed to reveal the Gospel.  It is through the work of Messiah on the cross that all mankind is brought back to the Father.

Joh 12:32  And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all to Myself.

Amazingly, the word crucifixion comes from the Hebrew ספח ‘saphach’ which means to gather and bloodshed.

Messiah gathers His people through the cross.

Joh 10:11  I am the Good Shepherd! The Good Shepherd lays down His life on behalf of the sheep.
Joh 10:14  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by the ones that are Mine.
Joh 10:15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.
Joh 10:17  For this reason My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life, that I may take it again.
Eph 2:11  Because of this, remember that you, the nations, were then in the flesh (those having been called Uncircumcision by those having been called Circumcision in the flesh made by hands)
Eph 2:12  that at that time you were without Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers of the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Eph 2:13  But now, in Christ Jesus you who then were afar off, came to be near by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For He is our peace, He making us both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition,
Eph 2:15  in His flesh causing to cease the enmity, the Law of the commandments in decrees, that He might in Himself create the two into one new man, making peace,
Eph 2:16  and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, slaying the enmity in Himself.
Eph 2:17  And coming, He proclaimed “peace to you, the ones afar off, and to the ones near.” Isa. 57:19
Eph 2:18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
Eph 2:19  So, then, you are no longer strangers and tenants, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and of the family of God,
Eph 2:20  being built up on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the cornerstone,
Eph 2:21  in whom all the building being fitted together grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
Eph 2:22  in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

Isaiah prophesies of this exact occurrence which comes forth from the crucifixion of Messiah.  Amazingly, the word for ‘cleave’ is Isaiah 14 where this is prophesied of is ספח which is the origin of the word crucifixion.

Isa 14:1  For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.

The end of the exile is likened to wounds being bound up.

Psa 147:2  YHWH builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the outcasts of Israel.
Psa 147:3  He heals the broken-hearted and binds up their sorrows.

The word for sorrow here is עצבת which is what is used in reference to the punishment of Adam and Eve in Genesis 3.  The word for bind is חבש which comes from the root חב which means to bind or join together.  It is also the root of the word ‘stripes’ which the Messiah received so that mankind may be healed.

Isa 53:5  But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His wounds we ourselves are healed.
1Pe 2:24  who “Himself carried up in His body our sins” onto the tree; that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness, of whom “by His wound you were healed.”
1Pe 2:25  For you were “as sheep going astray,” but now you turned back to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. Isa. 53:4-6

Restorers of the Breach

Isaiah speaks of the restorers of the breach, those who build the old waste places and return to mankind the foundations.

Isa 58:11  And YHWH shall always guide you, and satisfy your soul in dry places, and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water whose waters do not fail.
Isa 58:12  And those who come of you shall build the old ruins; you shall rear the foundations of many generations; and you shall be called, The repairer of the breach, the restorer of paths to live in.

Notice that the restorers are linked with springs of water that don’t fail.  As seen above, the pure language of Eden is likened unto living waters that fail not because the Hebrew language is a manifestation of The Word.  The Eternal Elohim.

Digging deeper into Isaiah 58:12 reveals interesting connections to the Edenic/Etymology subject.  The word for ‘waste places’ is חרבה ‘chorbah’ which is the picture of a sword that lays waste or destroys.  Interestingly, the Hebrew word for writing, כתב has the meaning of individual ‘cut’ parts that are combined together.  The Word is also likened to a sword in the book of Hebrews (Hebrews 4:12).  The word for ‘old’ is עלם ‘olam’ which means eternal.  The eternal Word or language is restored by the repairers of the breach.

They raise up the foundations of many generations.  The foundation of all things is His Word, from whence comes forth all things (Psalm 33:6).

The word for repairer is גדר ‘gadar’ which has the literal meaning of a wall that encloses a city.  This is also the meaning of a garden which is enclosed from outside elements.  Returning to the Garden and the language spoken by Adam.  The word for breach is פרץ which has the meaning of a river which breaches and spreads forth in different directions.  This is a perfect picture of the language of Eden breaching and dividing into many different streams going into different lands.

The restorer of paths could be speaking of those who lead the way back through Etymology to the source.  The old paths wherein is the good way (Jeremiah 6:16).

The Tower of Babel

Gen 11:1  And the whole earth was of one lip and of one speech (davar).

Adam Clarke’s commentary

Genesis 11:1  
The whole earth was of one language – The whole earth – all mankind was of one language, in all likelihood the Hebrew; and of one speech – articulating the same words in the same way.

It was YHWH who confused the tongues.

Gen 11:7  Come, let Us go down and confuse their language so that they cannot understand one another’s speech.
Gen 11:8  And YHWH scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth. And they stopped building the city.
Gen 11:9  On account of this its name is called Babel, because YHWH confused the language of all the earth there. And YHWH scattered them abroad from there on the face of all the earth.

The word for ‘confuse’ in verse 7 is בלל ‘balal’ which means to mix up.  The original language of Eden was mixed and confused, as a result through the study of Edenics one can find that every language traces back to this original language in Eden.

Through the account of Genesis 11 it is seen that all languages of earth spring forth from the original language of Eden.  This was done by the Hand of the Most High causing shadows of Messiah could be seen in every language of mankind, pointing them to salvation.

Isa 57:19  I create the fruit of the lips: peace, peace, to the ones far off and near, says YHWH, and I will heal him.

The word used by Isaiah for fruit is נוב which comes from the following:

נוב means that which comes forth from the seed.  The Seed is the Word.

Luk 8:11  And this is the parable: The seed is the Word of God.

The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language – Isaac Mozeson pg 108
“The Ben-Yehudah dictionary defines NeeYBH as ‘idiom, speech, dialect, and canine tooth.”

70 Languages

At the Tower of Babel, the languages were divided up into 70, according to the ‘table of nations’ recorded in Genesis 10.

Sons of Japheth
Gen 10:5  The coasts of the nations were divided by these in their lands each by his tongue, by their families, in their nations.

Sons of Ham
Gen 10:20  These were the sons of Ham, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their countries, in their nations.

Sons of Shem
Gen 10:31  These were the sons of Shem, according to their families, according to their tongues, in their lands, according to their nations.

These 70 nations were divided up according to the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 32:8) who were 70 in number (Exodus 1:5) and whose elders numbered 70 (Exodus 24:1, 9; Deuteronomy 10:22; Luke 10:17).

It is no surprise that the Spirit coming upon His people is associated with the gift of unknown tongues in order to speak to the nations.

Num_11:16  And the LORD said unto Moses, Gather unto me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom thou knowest to be the elders of the people, and officers over them; and bring them unto the tabernacle of the congregation, that they may stand there with thee.
Num_11:24  And Moses went out, and told the people the words of the LORD, and gathered the seventy men of the elders of the people, and set them round about the tabernacle.
Num_11:25  And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

The word for ‘prophesy’ is from the same root as ‘fruit’ of the lips mentioned above in Isaiah 57:19.

Furthermore, the gift of other tongues at Pentecost/Shavuot recorded in Acts 2 is linked to 70 שיבעתים as Pentecost/Shavuot means weeks שיבעה which comes from the same root שבע ‘sheva’ which means seven.  The English word seven actually derives from this Hebrew word ‘sheva.’

This can also be seen in other languages and the words for seven such as the Dutch ‘zeven,’ Danish ‘syv,’ German ‘sieben,’ Arabic ‘sabaa,’ and Swahili ‘saba.’  In Hebrew, שבת ‘shabbat,’ also has the meaning of seven, as in the 7 day week cycle, in addition to rest and repose.  This is seen in Sanskrit for seven which is ‘sapta,’ Greek ‘sabbaton,’ Latin ‘sabbatum,’ Italian ‘sa’bato,’ Spanish-Portuguese ‘sabado,’ Czech and Slovak ‘sobota,’ Russian ‘subbota,’ Ethiopic ‘sanbat,’ Rumanian ‘simbata,’ Hungarian ‘szombat,’ and the German ‘samstag.’  The month September means 7 from the Latin ‘septem.’  In French, 7 is ‘sept.’  Spanish and Italian is ‘sette.’

Act 2:1  And in the fulfilling of the day of Pentecost, they were all with one mind in the same place.
Act 2:2  And suddenly a sound came out of the heaven, as being borne along by a violent wind! And it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3  And tongues as of fire appeared to them, being distributed, and it sat on each one of them.
Act 2:4  And they were all filled of the Holy Spirit, and began to speak in other languages, as the Spirit gave ability to them to speak.
Act 2:5  And Jews were living in Jerusalem, devout men from every nation of those under the heaven.
Act 2:6  But this sound occurring, the multitude came together and were confounded, because they each heard them speaking in his own dialect.
Act 2:7  And all were amazed and marveled, saying to one another, Behold, are not all these, those speaking, Galileans?
Act 2:8  And how do we hear each in our own dialect in which we were born,
Act 2:9  Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and those living in Mesopotamia, both Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,
Act 2:10  both Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the regions of Libya over against Cyrene, and the temporarily residing Romans, both Jews and proselytes,
Act 2:11  Cretans and Arabians; in our own languages we hear them speaking the great deeds of God?

Messiah spoke of this gift as the Power of Elohim.
Act 1:7  And He said to them, It is not yours to know times or seasons which the Father placed in His own authority;
Act 1:8  but you will receive power, the Holy Spirit coming upon you, and you will be witnesses of Me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

His Power = His Word
Rom 1:16  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation to everyone believing, both to Jew first, and to Greek;

In the TaNaKH, the word most frequently translated as ‘power’, is the Hebrew ‘koach’.
Psa 29:4  The voice of YHWH is in power (koach); the voice of YHWH in majesty.

In the New Testament, multiple words are translated as power, each pointing to the Word.

Luk 4:32  And they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was with power (ἐξουσία exousia).
Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor of His glory, and the express image of His essence, and upholding all things by the Word of His power (δύναμις dunamis), having made purification of our sins through Himself, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high, Psa. 110:1
Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful (ἐνεργής energēs), and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

This connection between power, the word and the body of Messiah is further seen in Exodus 15:27.  Israel has just passed through the Yam Suf and came to Elim where there were 12 wells of water representing to the 12 tribes of Israel and 70 palm trees representing the nations. Amazingly, Elim means ‘power’ in Hebrew.

Interestingly, the Hebrew letter ע ‘ayin’ has the value of 70.  ‘Ayin’ is pictured by the eye, but also wells/springs of water.

Notice that the eye reveals the heart.  This further connects to language as the Messiah says that language/words come forth from the heart.

Mat 12:33  Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree corrupt and its fruit corrupt; for the tree is known by the fruit.
Mat 12:34  Offspring of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
Mat 12:35  The good man out of the good treasure of the heart puts forth good things. And the evil man out of the evil treasure puts forth evil things.

Luk 6:43  For there is not a good tree that produces bad fruit, nor a bad tree that produces good fruit.
Luk 6:44  For each tree is known from its own fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush.
Luk 6:45  The good man brings forth good out of the good treasure of his heart. And the evil man brings forth evil out of the evil treasure of his heart, for his mouth speaks out of the abundance of his heart.

Notice that Messiah further connects the words from the heart with fruit from trees, further linking to Exodus 15.

On a deeper level, Elim is a picture of the joining together of the body of Messiah.  ‘Elim’ also has the meaning of an arch which is held together by a keystone or ‘chief cornerstone.’

Eph 2:17  And coming, He proclaimed “peace to you, the ones afar off, and to the ones near.” Isa. 57:19
Eph 2:18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
Eph 2:19  So, then, you are no longer strangers and tenants, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and of the family of God,
Eph 2:20  being built up on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the cornerstone,
Eph 2:21  in whom all the building being fitted together grows into a holy temple in the Lord,
Eph 2:22  in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

1Pe 2:1  Then laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil words,
1Pe 2:2  as newborn babes desire the pure soul-nourishing milk, that you may grow by it;
1Pe 2:3  if indeed you “tasted” “that the Lord is good;” LXX-Psa. 33:9; MT-Psa. 34:8
1Pe 2:4  to whom having drawn near, a living Stone, indeed having been rejected by men, but chosen by God, precious;
1Pe 2:5  you also as living stones are being built a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
1Pe 2:6  Because of this, it is also contained in the Scripture: “Behold,” I lay in Zion” an elect, “precious Stone,” “a Corner-foundation;” “and the one believing in Him shall not be ashamed, never!” Isa. 28:16
1Pe 2:7  Then to you who believe belongs the preciousness. But to disobeying ones, He is the “Stone which those building rejected; this One became the Head of the Corner,” Psa. 118:22
1Pe 2:8  and a Stone-of-stumbling, and a Rock-of-offense” to the ones stumbling, being disobedient to the Word, to which they were also appointed. Isa. 8:14

Notice that Peter quotes the prophecy of Isaiah 28 which is referring to the confusing languages of the nations.
Isa 28:9  To whom shall He teach knowledge? And to whom shall He explain the message? Those weaned from milk, those moving from breasts?
Isa 28:10  For precept must be on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little.
Isa 28:11  For with stammering lip and other languages, He will speak to this people;
Isa 28:12  to whom He said, This is the rest; cause the weary to rest. Also, This is the repose. But they willed not to hear.
Isa 28:13  Yet the Word of YHWH was to them, precept on precept, precept on precept; line on line, line on line; here a little, there a little; that they might go, and stumble, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

Further linking His Power/Word with the body of Messiah is the word ‘koach’ which, as mentioned above, is translated as ‘power.’

כח literally means ‘palm of the hand.’  On the ‘palm’ of the Most High is carved out the tribes of Israel.

Isa 49:15  Can a woman forget her suckling child, from pitying the son of her womb? Yes, these may forget, yet I will surely not forget you.
Isa 49:16  Behold, I have carved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are always before Me.
WALLS=Lines on Hands=12 Walls of Yisrael (Revelation 21:12-27)

12 lines on the 4 fingers=12 tribes, 12 walls

In the reference to the 12 tribes and the walls of New Jerusalem above the same concept is seen.  It is referred to as His Bride.

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God,

Rev 21:11  having the glory of God. And its light was like a very precious stone, as a jasper stone, being clear as crystal,
Rev 21:12  and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates and names having been inscribed, which are of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.
Rev 21:13  From the east, three gates; from the north, three gates; from the south, three gates; and from the west, three gates.
Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

Language & DNA

Act 17:26  And He made every nation of men of one blood, to live on all the face of the earth, ordaining fore-appointed seasons and boundaries of their dwelling,

Blood can also be referring to DNA as mentioned in above in reference to the Hebrew word מנ.  Up until the tower of Babel, mankind had one language and were in unity.  It is interesting that as the languages got scattered, peoples congregated together according to language and dwelt in specific lands where certain traits became more prominent.

From one blood all mankind comes forth.  In Adam, all the colors of the dust dwelt.

In the 2nd Adam (1 Corinthians 15:47), there is no difference in color, race, etc.

Col 3:10  and having put on the new, having been renewed in full knowledge according to the image of the One creating him,
Col 3:11  where there is no Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, foreigner, Scythian, slave or freeman, but Christ is all things and in all.
Col 3:12  Therefore, as elect ones of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassions, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering,

Rom 10:12  For there is no difference both of Jew and of Greek, for the same Lord of all is rich toward all the ones calling on Him.

Gal 3:26  for you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:27  For as many as were baptized into Christ, you put on Christ.
Gal 3:28  There cannot be Jew nor Greek, there is no slave nor freeman, there is no male and female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Gal 3:29  And if you are of Christ, then you are a seed of Abraham, even heirs according to promise.

4 Skin colors – 4 Soil Colors

The four skin tones, pink, yellow, olive and brown, correspond to the 4 colors found in soil.  Soil is found in white, red, yellow and brown colors.

Adam, who came from the ground (adamah) was the father of all mankind.  Later this was replayed in Noah.

Gen 9:18  And the sons of Noah that went out of the ark were Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And Ham is the father of Canaan.
Gen 9:19  These are the three sons of Noah, and the whole earth was overspread from them.

Gen 9:20  And Noah, a man of the ground (adamah), began and planted a vineyard.

From Shem, Ham and Japheth the world was overspread/scattered into 70 nations (Genesis 10).  These 70 nations were divided according to the children of Israel (Deuteronomy 32:8).

Deu 32:8  when the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance; when He separated the sons of Adam, He set up the bounds of the peoples, according to the number of the sons of Israel.

Etymologists have divided up the languages of the world into 12 ‘superfamilies.’

The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language – Isaac Mozeson pg 375

Amazingly, the taxonomy of soil divides the types of dirt into twelve.

Alfisols, Andisols, Aridsols, Entisols, Gelisols, Histosols, Inceptisols, Mollisols, Oxisols, Spodosols, Ultisols, Vertisols.

Yisrael is a coat of many colors

Gen 37:3  Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.

colours:  Kethoneth passim, a coat made of stripes of different coloured cloth.

The Scriptures, as well as tradition speaks of Israel having different shades of skin color.

Genesis Rabah 98:5 says that Simeon and Levi were light colored types
Mishna Negaim 2:1 says that Israelites (in this case Jews of Judah) are mainly of an intermediate type color being neither black (Cushi) or white (Germani)
Genesis Rabah 86:3 says that Joseph was Germani Talmud Sota 36 describes him as having a face like a pink rose
Esau was ruddy/red/blonde Gen 25:25 as was David 1 Samuel 16:2
Laban means white or blonde
The Shepherdess in Song of Solomon was black and comely Son 1:6

Interestingly, color further connects to Israel in the numbers of 7 and 12.  There are 7 colors in the color spectrum which corresponds to the 7 branches of the Menorah.  The Menorah is a picture of the body of Messiah{Revelation 1:20; John 15:5}.  The 7 colors then expand into 12 color hues of the color wheel.

Biblically, race is not defined by color.  Race is defined by what nature you are.  You are either in Messiah or you are not.  You are either for Him or against Him.  You are either the seed of the woman or the seed of the serpent.  As seen above, the word for color in Hebrew has the same meaning as being baptised and becoming anew.  You are either sprinkled by the blood of Messiah (Isaiah 52:15; Hebrew 10:22) or you are still covered in the garments of sinful flesh.

1Pe 2:9  But you are “an elect race,” “a royal priesthood,” “a holy nation,” “a people for possession,” so that “you may openly speak of the virtues” of the One who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; LXX-Ex. 23:22; MT-Ex. 19:5, 6

In Hebrew the word for race is גזע, which means the stock/root of a tree.

H1503
גּזע
geza‛
BDB Definition:
1) stem, trunk, stock (of trees)

Who is the root of Israel?  Messiah Yahshua

Rom 11:16  For if the firstfruit (1Cor 15:52 -Messiah) be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root (Isa 6:13; Gal 3:16 – Messiah) be holy, so are the branches (Joh 15:5).

Isa 11:1  And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem (H1503 גּזע
geza‛)of Jesse, and a Branch{H5342 נצר netser*} shall grow (parah -bear fruit) out of his roots:

*Netser is the origin of the name ‘Christian’.Netsarim

The following prophecy is speaking of the Messiah and the 7 Spirits which rest upon Him (Revelation 4:5; 5:6), corresponding to the 7 Branches of the Menorah.
Isa 11:2  And the Spirit of YHWH shall rest on Him; He will have the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and power, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of YHWH.
Isa 11:3  And He is made to breathe in the fear of YHWH. But He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, nor decide by the hearing of His ears.

Further linking people and language is the words used in Hebrew for particular languages.  Language/speech is equivalent with people.  This can be seen in Nehemiah 13:24.

Neh 13:24  And their children spoke half in the speech of Ashdod, and to them there was no respecting to speak Jewish, but according to the language of each people.

The word for the Ashdodite language is אשׁדודית ‘ashdodit’ from the Ashdod people.  The word for the Jewish language is יהודית ‘yehudite’ from the Jewish nation.  Another example is seen in the book of Ezra.

Ezr 4:7  And in the days of Artaxerxes, Bishlam, Mithredath, Tabeel, and the rest of their companions wrote to Artaxerxes the king of Persia. And the letter was written in Aramaic, and translated from Aramaic.

The word for Aramaic is ארמית ‘aramiyt’ from the Arameans.

The word for Hebrew is עברית ‘ivrit’ which comes עברי ‘ivri’ which means a Hebrew person.

Communication or language can also be divided up into 12 parts or functions of the body.

Nose – the nose is used to bring in air which comes up from the lungs through the vocal chords to form words in the mouth.  Letters such as m and n are formed by using the nose, these are called nasals.

Mouth – the mouth is used in every word of language.  The mouth also means an edge in Hebrew, such as the edge/mouth of a sword.

Heb 4:12  For the Word of God is living, and powerfully working, and sharper than every two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of both soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge of the thoughts and intentions of the heart;


Lips – the lips are the ‘container’ of the mouth and used in particular in bilabials such as the letters b and p.  One of the words for language in Hebrew, שפה ‘saphah,’ comes from the Hebrew word for lips ספ.


Tongue
– another word for language in Hebrew is לשן ‘lashon,’ which literally means the tongue.  ‘Liquid’ letters such as L and R cannot be formed without the tongue.

Teeth – teeth are used for particular letters such as d and t which are called dentals.

Lungs (breathe) – language would be impossible without the air that comes forth from the lungs.  It is interesting to note that language consists of 7 sounds which come forth from the lungs which are a picture of the menorah mentioned above.

The word for lungs in Hebrew is ריאה ‘reyah’ which traces back to the root רי ‘riy’ which means to flow.  It is related to רה ‘rah’ which means a flowing of the insides and רא ‘ra.’  Interestingly, רא ‘ra’ means to see which is related to light which links again to the menorah lung connection.

Vocal Chords – the air from the lungs travels through the vocal chords vibrating them to form the sounds used for speech.  Interestingly, the vocal chords are contained in a ‘box’ commonly referred to as the voice box.  The Hebrew word for box is תבה ‘tevah’ as in the arks of Noah and Moses.  The Word was held within the Ark of the Covenant (Deuteronomy 10:2).

A further connection is seen between the word דבר ‘davar’ and light אור ‘or.’

By looking at the numerical value of the phrase ‘let there be light’ we see another connection to the Word.

Light

The Hebrew words for ‘light’ and ‘word’ are also similar in that they have the same meaning of order.

Light comes from the following root word:

Word comes from the following root word:

Diaphragm – the diaphragm is integral in the process of breathing.  It works in tandem with the lungs when inhaling and exhaling, and thus is linked with language and the air that passes through the vocal chords.

In acoustics, a diaphragm is a ‘transducer intended to faithfully inter-convert mechanical motion and sound.’  Diaphragms are commonly used in loudspeakers, headphones and microphones as semi-rigid membranes which vibrate to produce sound.

Heart – it is out of the abundance of the heart that communication comes forth (Matthew 12:34).

The connection between the heart and the Word is further seen in the first and last letters of the TaNaKH.

The first letter of the Torah is ב, the last letter of the Torah is ל, the last letter of the TaNaKH is also ל.  Both forwards בל and in reverse לב the word for heart is seen.


H1079

בּל  (Aramaic)
bâl
BDB Definition:
1) mind, heart

The Torah/TaNaKH is the ‘heart’ of YHWH (Psalm 119:32; Isaiah 51:7; Philippians 2:8).

Brain – without the brain, no processes of the body are possible.

It is interesting to note that there are 22 bones of the cranium which correspond to the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet.

Nerves – the nerves are the messengers of the brain which are used in every aspect of speech.

Neurons consist of 3 parts like the 3 letter child root of Hebrew words.  2 nerve fibers and the cell body.  Neurons look like trees with ‘dendrites’ that extend like ‘leafless trees.’  The Hebrew word used for nerves is עצב ‘atsav’ which is interesting as the word for tree עצ is the root of עצב ‘atsav.’  עצ ‘ets’ is also the word for counselors, as in the counselors of a tribe.  It is interesting to note that the messages that the nerves take from the brain start their travel from 12 cranial nerves.

Where does counsel come from?  Messiah/the Word.  Who is the Head of the body(1 Chronicles 29:11; 1 Corinthians 11:3; Ephesians 1:22; 4:15; 5:23; Colossians 1:18-19).

Isa 9:6  For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Hands – the hands are used in communication through hand gestures but even more so in writing.  Messiah is the Hand of God (Deuteronomy 33:2; Exodus 15:6; Psalm 44:3; 118:14-16; Hebrews 1:3)…the Word.

The word in Hebrew for writing literally means to cut up words.  כתב ‘katav’ is the Hebrew word for writing.  It is the combination of two root words that means making Hebrew words, or cutting out rectangles.  כת ‘kat’ means to cut or engrave and בת ‘bach’ means a box, ark or word mentioned above.

Interestingly, the word anatomy has a similar meaning.

From Greek we derive the word ‘tome ‘(Greek: τόμος), which originally meant a slice or piece and from there began to denote “a roll of papyrus”. Tomus was used by the Latins with exactly the same meaning as volumen which means a roll/scroll.

The volume of the Scroll is written about Messiah

Psa 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

‘Tome’ is the root of the word anatomy:

In the same passage of Scripture mentioned above in reference to Messiah, it speaks of the body being given to Him.

Heb 10:5  For this reason, coming into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You prepared a body for Me.
Heb 10:6  You did not delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices concerning sins.”
Heb 10:7  “Then I said, Lo, I come, in the heading*** of the Book
(Biblion) it was written concerning Me, to do Your will, O God.” LXX-Psa. 39:7 -9; MT-Psa. 40:6 -8

A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from G2776

In Hebrew this word is ‘megillah’ which is also related to the ‘head’.  The word golgolet (Golgotha/skull) comes from this same root in Hebrew meaning round. The word ‘megillah’ is related to the Hebrew word ‘galgal’ (circle) which has the gematria of 66, referring back to the 66 books of the Word.

The word for ‘chapter’, also means a ‘head’ from the Latin ‘capitulum.’

Traditionally, Torah scrolls were treated like living beings.  They were clothed and when they wore out they were buried.  The armor worn by a man (specifically speaking of Messiah) as mentioned in Isaiah 59:13; Ephesians 6:11 corresponds with the clothing of a Torah Scroll. The Armor of Elohim is linked with baptism in Messiah Armor of Elohim

The word in Greek for armor is ‘panoplia’ which is used to translate the Hebrew word ‘chalatz’ in the Septuagint

Going back to the word anatomy, as seen above it used to be a synonymous word with ‘skeleton.’

The word for bone in Hebrew comes from the word עץ meaning a tree…it is no coincidence that etymologists liken language to a tree and branches…

Finally, the word for man in Hebrew, אדם, can have the meaning of ‘not silent.’  The א at the beginning of a word can have the sense of ‘not’ or ‘without.’  דם in Hebrew can have the meaning of silent, the aleph prefix means ‘not.’  Man is the only creature who is ‘not silent’ and speaks.

The different words in Hebrew referring to language refer back to the body.

The Hebrew word for ‘word’ is דבר ‘davar’ means order and arrangement as in the arrangement of letters to form words.  ‘Davar’ comes from the root דר which means a ‘circle.’  Amazingly, when man speaks the sound that comes forth is in the shape of a circle or ‘pearl.’

The studies of John Stuart Reid reveal that the shape of sound coming from our mouths when we speak is likened unto a ‘pearl.’

Sound that comes from our mouths is like unto a PEARL.

Mat 7:6  Do not give that which is holy to the dogs, nor throw your pearls before the pigs, that they should not trample them with their feet, and turning they charge you.

The word for pearl in the above verse comes from the following Greek word.

G3135
μαργαρίτης
margaritēs
Thayer Definition:
1) a pearl
2) a proverb, i.e. a word of great value
Part of Speech: noun masculine
A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: from margaros (a pearl-oyster)

The Greek word ‘margaros/margaron’ meaning a pearl comes from the Hebrew word is גרעין ‘gariyn’ which means grain, or a seed. {Source of finding: E-Word by Isaac Mozeson}

Luk 8:11  And this is the parable: The seed is the Word of God.

The Pearl further connects to the Word in that the word translated as pearl in Ester 1:6 is the Hebrew word דר ‘dar’ which as mentioned above is the root of the word דבר ‘davar’ which means ‘word’ in Hebrew.  Here we see a deeper meaning of the word דר…  דבר is a pearl or circle.  The letter ב means a house or body.  ‘Davar’ then can mean the pearls that come forth from the house…this is exactly what our words are.

One of the words for ‘speak’ in Hebrew is לעז which comes from the word לע which means the throat.  The word תולע which means a crimson worm, as in the color of the throat, has interesting connections to this study as Messiah/the Word is spoken of as this ‘worm’ in Psalm 22 in reference to the crucifixion.

Psa 22:6  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of mankind, and despised by the people.

Biblical Basis for Modern Science page 73
“When the female of the scarlet worm species was ready to give birth to her young, she would attach her body to the trunk of a tree, fixing herself so firmly and permanently that she could never leave again.  The eggs deposited beneath her body were thus protected until the larvae were hatched and able to leave and enter their own life cycle.  As the mother died, the crimson fluid stained her body and the surrounding wood.  From the dead bodies of such female scarlet worms, the commerical scarlet dyes of antiquity were extracted.”

Just as the ‘tola’ worm died upon a tree so that her offspring could survive, so too did Messiah.

Isa 53:10  But YHWH pleased to crush Him, to make Him sick, so that If He should put His soul as a guilt offering, He shall see His seed; He shall prolong His days; and the will of YHWH shall prosper in His hand.

Heb 2:10  For it was fitting for Him, because of whom are all things, and through whom are all things, having brought many sons to glory, to perfect Him as the Author of their salvation through sufferings.
Heb 2:11  For both the One sanctifying and the ones being sanctified are all of one; for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brothers,
Heb 2:12  saying, “I will announce Your name to My brothers; I will hymn to You in the midst of the assembly.”

As mentioned above, the word ‘language’ comes from the Hebrew words לשן ‘lashon’ meaning the tongue, סף ‘saph’ meaning the lips, and פה ‘peh’ meaning the mouth.

In Greek, the word translated as language is διάλεκτος ‘dialektos’ which comes from the root διαλέγομαι ‘dialegomai’ which is the combination of the words ‘dia’ meaning through and ‘lego’ meaning the word.

The English word ‘dialect’ comes from this Greek word ‘dialektos.’  This traces back to the Hebrew word להג ‘lahag’ which means to study, or talk.  The English word ‘language’ comes from the Latin word ‘lingua’ which traces back further to the Hebrew word לחך ‘lachakh’ which literally means to lick, from לח ‘lach’ meaning moisture from the tongue as language comes from the tongue.  The tablets, לוח ‘luach,’  that the 10 commandments were written upon, come from this root word as a common writing material in ancient times was wet/moist clay that was inscribed upon and allowed to dry to preserve the writing.

The Greek word for tongue/language is γλῶσσα ‘glōssa’ which is used to translate the above mentioned Hebrew words for language (lashon-tongue; peh-mouth; saphah-lips) but also the Hebrew word כבד ‘kavod’ which means glory.  The literal meaning of the word כבד ‘kavod’ is the liver but Scripture does link כבד ‘kavod’ with the tongue.

Psa 57:8  Wake up my glory (kavod)! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will stir the morning dawn with praise.

Acts 2 is quoting Psalm 16:9 which says my ‘glory’ (כבד ‘kavod’) rejoices.  In Acts is says my tongue rejoices.
Psa 16:9  So my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh shall also rest in hope.
Act 2:25  For David said as to Him, “I always foresaw the Lord before Me, because He is at My right hand, that I not be moved.
Act 2:26  For this reason My heart rejoiced, and My tongue was glad; and My flesh also will dwell on hope,

Psa 30:12  So my glory shall praise You, and not be quiet; O YHWH, my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

Psa 108:1  A Song. A Psalm of David. O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing; yea, I will sing songs even with my glory.

It is no surprise then that Messiah is spoken of as both the Word (language) and Glory of God (Revelation 21:23).

2Sa 23:2  The Spirit of YHWH has spoken by me, and His Word is on my tongue.

Language & DNA

It is amazing to note that scientists have found that language can alter our DNA.  Is it a surprise then that the dividing of the languages had an effect upon the characteristics and traits of the peoples of the earth as they traversed into different areas of the earth?  The ancients, such as Josephus and Hippolytus among others divided up the ‘ethnicities’ of the earth according to the table of nations in Genesis 10.  The prophecy of Zephaniah where YHWH returns a pure language of the peoples will occur in the Kingdom when Messiah rules and reigns on earth.  This is also the time of the resurrection where believers are reborn in His Image and likeness.

The Menorah is linked to the Solfeggio scale through a spiraling movement, also linking it to the DNA helix:

The Menorah and the Solfeggio Scale

In his book, “Identity – You are the Tabernacle of God” on pg 54 John Saba found the following revelation.

Day 1 of creation corresponds to day 4.  Day 2 corresponds to day 5.  Day 3 corresponds to day 6.  The Light of the 1st day connects with the light of the sun on day 4.  The fish in the 5th day and the water of the 2nd day connect.  Man in the 6th day connects with the earth/dust from whence he came.  Using this pattern Mr. Saba found that the menorah shows the original Solfeggio scale. Solfeggio Scale .

Left to right
174, 285, 396
Right to left
417, 528, 639

2. Re=417=3
3. Mi=528=6
4. Fa=639=9
5. Sol=741=3
6. La=852=6

By following the above, 174, 285, 396 etc, a spiral movement is seen.  Here we see a connection, via the Menorah, between light and sound.  The 7 branches of the Menorah correspond to the 7 notes in the musical scale and the 7 colors in the color spectrum and the 7 wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum.

As seen in Shadows of Messiah – Mathematicsclick here, all of creation is based upon frequencies which are numbers.  Marko Rodin discovered what has come to be known as vortex based mathematics which is based upon the same 3, 6, 9 pattern of the Solfeggio scale.  The significant part of Rodin’s discoveries is that DNA fits into this same pattern.

Digging deeper, Stan Tenen (meru.org)  has found even more connections between Vortex based mathematics and DNA.

“The 3,10 knot is defined by a braided column of 99 tetrahedra.  [Each column of 99 tetrahedra represents 3 turns in the knot].  Each of the 3 turns in the knot is represented by a column segment of 33 tetrahedra. Each segment of 33 tetrahedra has 4×33 = 132 faces, of which 132/2 = 66 are internal and 132/2 =66 are external. The 66 external faces form 3 strings of 22 faces each, and each string corresponds to the 22 Hebrew letters.

66 of course, corresponds to the number of books in the Bible.

“The 66 books of the Bible are spiraled into 3 cycles, encompassed by the 22 Hebrew letters, which then beautifully manifests the 7  divisions of the Biblical Canon.”  {The Bible Wheel – Richard McGough}

“The Bible Wheel is a circular presentation of the Bible that I discovered by rolling up the traditional list of the sixty-six books like a scroll on a spindle wheel of twenty-two spokes, corresponding to the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The order of the Hebrew alphabet is established in the alphabetically structured passages of the Old Testament, most notably Psalm 119 that praises God’s Word from Aleph to Tav, from beginning to end. This exemplifies how everything in the Bible Wheel is derived from Scripture and Scripture alone.” {Richard McGough}

It is also interesting to note that the Hebrew language consists of 7 verb forms.

7 Sounds

All words come forth from 7 sounds. Vowels (breath), bilabials (lips), gutturals (throat), dentals (teeth), liquids (tongue), nasals (nose) and fricatives (whistling sounds).

These 7 different sounds are interchangeable.

Pro 15:4  A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, but perverseness in it is a break of the spirit.

The source of all things comes from the Word, as this was the means by which the Creator brought forth everything (Psalm 33:6).  Interestingly, the origin of the word ‘source’ comes from the Hebrew word שרש ‘shoresh’ which means a root.  Yet another connection to trees.

The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language – Isaac Mozeson pg 108-109
“In the decades of work on Edenics since the 1980s, it may be confirmed that sound is sense, and that human vocabulary (all variants of the original Edenic – Biblical Hebrew and other proto-Semitic roots) is from the same Creator of the human brain and mouth, astrophysics or biochemistry…Edenicists are root doctors, digging for sub-roots.  We follow the shifts of sound or space of each root letter.  We mostly listen to phonemes, the sound of two root letters combined.  If atoms are like letters, phonemes are the molecules.  Anything longer than two letters is a compound, a combination of meaning elements, just as any substance which includes H2O has been added to water (hydrogen plus oxygen).”

The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language – Isaac Mozeson pg 322
“Every Edenic word belongs to a tight, but ever-widening family.  If two words share some element of meaning, they are bound to share some genes or letters in some form.”

A good example is the words רא which means to see and אר which means light.  Sight is not possible without light.  אר has the meaning of order so it is no surprise that רא is the root of the word shepherd, who orders the way of his flock.  {Source of this finding – Isaac Mozeson}

2 Letter roots

Each letter in the Hebrew language is a pictograph that has a meaning.  Hence, each word in Hebrew that shares letters will have similar meanings even if the letter arrangement is different.

2 Letter roots are known as ‘parent roots.’  2 Letter roots usually add a third letter in order for the word to be conjugated.  This 3 letter root is called the child root.  Notice again the connection between language, people (parent/child) and trees (roots).  This combination of language, people and trees (agriculture) is known as ‘Agrobiolinguistics’ – Language, Biology and Agriculture are all linked together.  {For more two letter roots see, Jeff Benner’s work on the Hebrew Language}

Mat 4:4  But he answered and said, It is written, Man (biology) shall not live by bread (agriculture) alone, but by every word (linguistics) that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.

In Hebrew it is written “His kind, whose seed is in Himself”

Creation is the second witness of the Scriptures.  Shown through agriculture, biology and language.

The good seed (agriculture), is the Word of Elohim (linguistics), which became flesh (body,biology)
Luk 8:11  And this is the parable: The seed is the Word of God.
Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

Joh 1:14  And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth.
Gal 3:16  But the promises were spoken to Abraham and to his Seed (it does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” which is Christ).

Agrobiolinguistics is further displayed in the Hebrew Aleph-Bet.

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible

Each letter points to Messiah.  As can be seen above, Hebrew is a pictographic language with each letter representing a physical object and action.

Messiah is seen in the Animal kingdom (aleph – ox; Gimel – camel), He is seen in our body parts (Gimel – foot; Yod – hand; Kaf – palm; Ayin – eye; Peh – mouth; Resh – head; Shin – teeth), He is seen in agriculture and architecture  (Bet – tent; Dalet – door; Vav – Tent peg; Zayin – mattock; Lamed – staff; Tsadie – hunter) and He is seen in nature (Mem – water; Nun – seed; Samekh – thorn)

Etymology Examples

Following are a couple of examples of how all languages trace back to Eden.  All people on earth can relate to the following words of father and mother for without them we would not exist.

The Family

It is amazing to note that the Hebrew word for family משפחה ‘mishpochah’ comes from the same root as ספח ‘saphach’ mentioned above as the origin of the word crucifixion.  The Greek word for family is πατρια ‘patria’ which comes from the word πατηρ ‘patēr’ which means father.  The Hebrew word for father is אב which is spelled ‘aleph’ ‘bet’…

Father

אב has the meaning of a pole:
In English, the word ‘pole’ comes from the Old English pal which traces back to the Latin palus, which literally means a stake.  The English word ‘pale’ derives from this word.  ‘Pale’ means to fix or fasten and is related to the English word ‘pact.’  A pact is an agreement, treaty, compact which comes from the Latin word pactum which means a contract/covenant.  A covenant through a pole/stake…  Here we see אב ‘av,’ the first word of the Hebrew alphabet pointing to the most important event in human history.  The crucifixion of Messiah Yahshua, and the New Covenant (Isaiah 42:6; Matthew 26:28)  in His blood which restores mankind back to the Father.

The concrete meaning of the word אב is the pole/pillar of the house/tent.  This traces back to another Hebrew word for family בת ‘bet.’


Following is from Isaac Mozeson’s research into Edenics and some examples of different languages and their words for family, house and dwelling tracing back to the Hebrew word בת ‘bat.’

E-Word – Isaac Mozeson pg 19-20

E-Word pg 89

Thus ends Mozeson’s research.

The word father is a great example of all languages tracing back to Edenic Hebrew.  Father in Hebrew is אב aleph bet.

א aleph ב bet are the first two letters of the ‘aleph-bet’ from whence comes the English alpha-bet.

All of creation comes forth from the Word according to Psalm 33:6. Words are made up of letters (the Aleph-Betclick here) which points to Messiah who is the Alpha & Omega/Aleph-Tav which is a term meaning totality, as in the complete Alpha-Beta of the Greek or Aleph-Bet of the Hebrew.

Interestingly, the word ‘Bible’ in English comes from the Hebrew word אבוב ‘avoov’ which means a pipe and is also the source of the word papyrus which ancient Bibles were written upon. The word for booby and baba comes from אבוב ‘avoov’/’aboob’) as well. Again this traces back to אב ‘av’ who is the source of the milk of the Word (1Peter 2:2). Peter was quoting from Psalm 34:8 which speaks of ‘tasting’ and seeing that YHWH is good and blessed are those who ‘trust’ in Him. The word ‘trust’ comes from ‘chasah’ which means a firm support, again tracing back to the meaning of אב father which literally means the strong one/support of the house.

The father is the strength of the house.  The teacher, the guide of the family.  The letter ב ‘bet’ represents the house/family consisting of male and female as the ancient nomadic tent was made of two parts, one for the male and the other for the female.  Man was made in the image of God, male and female (Genesis 1:27).  אב ‘ab’ is the word for the source.  This passes into Latin as ‘ab’ and Greek as απο ‘apo’ which is portrayed in the Hebrew as מ mem.  The letter Mem is a pictograph for water and the womb.  The waters in the beginning and the womb of the mother.  Again the Father’s character consists of both ‘male’ and ‘female.’  This is further seen in that father means one who provides food, which is seen in the female breasts.  This word in Hebrew is דוד dod which is the source of the English word dad.

Fruit on a pole is another translation of אב.  This again points to the source of the next generation.  The word fruit comes from the Old English meaning a brook which links again to water.  The Old English word for fruit also means joy, eat, and cohabit, again tracing back to אב.  Joy links to love who is God (1 John 4:16).  This is seen in the tent in the Hebrew word חשק chashaq.  ‘Chashaq’ has the meaning of being knit together in love (Deuteronomy 7:7; Psalm 91:14) and is used in Exodus 38:17, 28 for the joining together of the Tabernacle.

The English word father comes from πατηρ ‘pater’ in Greek which traces back to  פטר  ‘pater’  in Hebrew which means the breaking forth of something such as a child being born, or the seed in fruit to continue the next generation.  פר ‘par’ means fruit, and the breaking open of the heads of grain to reveal the seed inside.

נב ‘nav’ is another word for fruit and carries this same meaning, the fruit inside.  It is no surprise that the first and last letters of the Bible (Genesis-Revelation) consist of these two letters.  The reverse is בן ‘ben’ which means son.  The son is the seed of the father that continues the house.

The father is the protector of the family and is seen in איב ‘oyev’ the point of a tent pole used to protect the family against enemies.  This can also be seen in the spear which is used to protect, defend or to kill and eat.

Dad comes from דוד ‘dod’ which means the breasts, the source of food, life – milk.  Interestingly, milk contains protein which comes forth from 22 amino acids linking to the 22 letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet…taste and see that He is good (Psalm 34:8).

The Bosom, the Family and Gathering at the Cross

Just as the word father in Hebrew is associated with love, so too is the word mother.  אם ‘em’ (mother) is the source of the Latin ‘amare,’ the French ‘amitie’ and the English ‘amity’ which mean love.  One of the Hebrew words for love is דד ‘dud/dad’ which means both love and breasts/bosom.  Interestingly, the English word ‘baby’ comes from the Hebrew בבה ‘baba’ which is related to the word אבוב ‘aboob’ the root of which is אב ‘av’ which means father but also means a pipe, as in the breast of the mother whose milk flows to give sustenance to the baby.  בבה ‘baba’ in Hebrew means the pupil, the apple of one’s eyes.  As any parent has held their baby in their arms against their bosom they recognize this is the epitome of love and intimate relationship (apple of the eye/little guy in the eye).

As mentioned above, family comes from משפחה ‘mispocha’ the same root as שפח ‘shapach’.  שפח Shaphach is the root of the word crucifixion which gathers all the family of the earth.  The bosom, which represents the love of the family also links to the bosom.

Messiah came from the bosom of the Father.

Joh 1:18  No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, that One declares Him.

He gathers and then carries in His bosom His people, linking to the crucifixion.  It is through the work of Messiah on the cross that mankind is brought into His family.

Isa 40:10  Behold, the Lord YHWH will come with strength, and His arm rules for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His wage before Him.
Isa 40:11  He shall feed His flock like a shepherd; He shall gather lambs with His arm; and carry them in His bosom; those with young He will lead;
Psa 89:50  Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Your servants, my bearing in my bosom the insults of the many peoples
Psa 89:51  with which Your enemies have cursed, O YHWH; with which they have cursed the footsteps of Your anointed.

Eph 2:8  For by grace you are saved, through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift (gift = love = bosom) of God;
Eph 2:9  not of works, that not anyone should boast;
Eph 2:10  for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God before prepared that we should walk in them.
Eph 2:11  Because of this, remember that you, the nations, were then in the flesh (those having been called Uncircumcision by those having been called Circumcision in the flesh made by hands)
Eph 2:12  that at that time you were without Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers of the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Eph 2:13  But now, in Christ Jesus you who then were afar off, came to be near by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For He is our peace, He making us both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition,
Eph 2:15  in His flesh causing to cease the enmity, the Law of the commandments in decrees, that He might in Himself create the two into one new man, making peace,
Eph 2:16  and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, slaying the enmity in Himself.
Eph 2:17  And coming, He proclaimed “peace to you, the ones afar off, and to the ones near.” Isa. 57:19
Eph 2:18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
Eph 2:19  So, then, you are no longer strangers and tenants, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and of the family of God,

There are multiple words in Hebrew for love, all linking back to the bosom.  The most common is אהב ‘ahav’ which has the meaning of a gift and the expressions and actions of one towards the family.  The pictograph meaning displays the gift of the Father to mankind of His only begotten Son.  Again linking the bosom, the family and the crucifixion.

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 15:13  Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends.

From the root:

The Pictograph meaning of Love


The first and last letters spell out the word for Father (אב ‘ab’) and the middle letter is a picture of a man with outstretched arms.  The Love of the Father is revealed through the Messiah on the tree, gathering all mankind back to their Creator.

Another word for love is חשק ‘chashaq’ which has the meaning of being knit together in love.  ‘Chashaq’ comes from חב ‘chav’ which means the bosom.  ‘Chashaq’ is the word used in reference to the joining together of the Tabernacle, which is a shadow picture of the body of Messiah.  It is no surprise that this joining together involved nails, just as in the nails used in the crucifixion (Exodus 38:17, 28; Deuteronomy 7:7; Colossians 2:2, 19; Ephesians 4:15-16).

חשק ‘Chashaq’ also can be traced back to the word חק ‘choq’

H2436
חוק  /  חק  /  חיק
chêyq  /  chêq  /  chôq
BDB Definition:
1) bosom, hollow, bottom, midst

חק ‘chuq’ is the root of חקק ‘chaqaq’ and חקה ‘chaqah’ which means to inscribe a decree or custom.  It is used in reference to the Torah.  It is no surprise that the New Covenant, cut at Calvary is associated with the inscribing of the Word on our hearts which is contained in our bosoms (Jeremiah 31:31).

The feasts/appointed times, at which the people of YHWH gathered, are linked to this word ‘choq.’


It is no surprise then that the English word hug traces back to the Hebrew word חג ‘chag’ which means feast.


The feasts revolved around the gathering together of the people to the Tabernacle or tent.  The Tabernacle itself was called the אהל מועד
‘ohel mo’ed’ which means tent of meeting/gathering or tabernacle of congregation. מועד ‘Moed’ comes from עד ‘ad’ which means to see the door, as in meeting as the door of the Tabernacle.

There are two more words in Hebrew which are translated as bosom.  It is חצן which comes from חץ ‘chats’ which literally means a tent wall, as in an enclosing.  Finally, the word צלחת ‘tsalachat’ which also means a bowl, as in the bowls used in the Tabernacle.  צלחת ‘tsalachat’ comes from צלח ‘tselach’ which traces back further to צל ‘tsel’ which means a shadow…as under the shadow of His wings, the little guy in His Eye.

Recall that the word in Hebrew for pupil is בבה ‘baba’ which is the source of the English word ‘baby.’  Interestingly, the English word ‘shade’ comes from the Hebrew word שד ‘shad’ which means the breast/bosom.  שד ‘shad’ is the root of the word שדי ‘shaddai’ which is translated as ‘the Almighty.’  שד ‘shad’ literally means to return to the door, again linking with the feasts and the Tabernacle mentioned above.

Finally, the word דוד ‘dod’ means love.  דד ‘dod’ literally means the breasts.  The letter ד ‘dalet’ is the picture of a door, or flap of a tent which opens the way inside.  The tabernacle consisted of two doors/veils which דד displays.  What is the veil of the Tabernacle a picture of?  The body/flesh of Messiah.

Heb 10:20  which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh;

The above portion of Scripture is in context of the New Covenant which was cut at Calvary where Messiah gathered mankind into His bosom (Isaiah 40:11; Psalm 89:50).

Bosom & Faith

Num 11:12  I, have I conceived all this people? I, have I begotten it, that You say to me, Carry it in your bosom as the foster father (אמן aman) bears the suckling, to the land which You have sworn to its fathers?

The word used above  for foster father/nursing father is אמן ‘aman’ which means faith.  Faith comes from the same root as truth (etymology) in Hebrew מן ‘man.’

Faith and Truthclick here are synonomous

Faith (emunah) and Truth (emet) come from the same root and as seen above are interchangeable when translating the text.

Ancient Hebrew Definition

‘Emunah’ comes from the 3 letter root ‘aman’

‘Aman’ means truly, a sure foundation and support.  This is why Messiah is spoken of as the ‘Amen’ (Revelation 3:14).  He is the firm foundation represented by the Tree of Life/the Word.  The other tree in midst the Garden was the tree of knowledge which represents unfaithfulness/lawlessness.  Man must choose between the two.  The choice that one makes determines which seed/tree he will be a part of.  Interestingly, the parent root for the word ‘emunah’ is מן which means ‘the blood continues.’  It is the word used in Genesis 1 for ‘kind’ or species.  Recall that this is the origin of the word ‘etymology’ as well.

Faith is Biblically defined as walking in Truth who is the Word/Messiah.  Faith traces back to the Garden of Eden and the two trees in the midst of the Garden.  The Tree of Life which represents truth/faith and the tree of knowledge which represents unfaithfulness/lawlessness and man’s own will as to what is good or evil.

The English word faith comes from the Old French word ‘foi’ which means faith, belief, trust which traces back further to the Latin word ‘fides’ which has the same meaning.  ‘Fides’ traces back to the Hebrew word בטח ’batach.’  ‘Batach’ is also the source for the English word ‘trust.’  “Batach’ means to cling to someone or something.  It is pictured in the natural realm in a melon which clings to the vine.  Here again the picture of the Tree of Life and the tree of knowledge is seen.  Man can have faith in YHWH and cling to Him or man can choose his own way and cling to the tree of knowledge.  This concept of clinging to the vine is discussed in more detail in the Biblical definition of the Olive treeclick here and the word אב ‘av’ (Father)click here.

Mother

The next example is the mother.


The mother is the אם ‘strong waters’ or glue that holds the house/family together.  מ ‘mem’ means waters and also the source or origin as it is affixed to Hebrew words as a prefix meaning ‘from’ or ‘out from’ indicating a source.  This is no surprise as it is the mother from whence all mankind comes, as is spoken of in Scripture.

Gen 3:20  And the man called the name of his wife, Eve; because she became the mother of all living.

It is also no surprise then that the word for peoples עם ‘am’ is related to the word for mother אם ‘em’ as א & ע sound a like and have similar meanings in words.  As seen above, the father also means the source.  In Proto-Japanese the word for mother is ‘papa.’  This is because our Heavenly Father is both ‘male and female.’  Not literally as He is Spirit (John 4:24), but Scripture speaks of ‘adam’ or mankind being created in His Image, both male and female (Genesis 1:27).
This is further seen in the Latin word ‘ab’ which means source or origin.

The Latin word ‘ab’ which ultimately means ‘from the source’ comes from the Hebrew word ‘min’ and then traces back and links to the Hebrew word ‘ab’ which means ‘Father’ who is the source of all.

The first use of ‘ab’ in the Latin Vulgate is found in Genesis 1:6.
Gen 1:6  dixit quoque Deus fiat firmamentum in medio aquarum et dividat aquas ab aquis 
Gen 1:6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

It is interesting that this word is first used in reference to the dividing of the waters as the Latin word ‘ab’ traces back to water.
‘Ab’ means water in Arabic and the Latin prefix ‘ab’ is used for liquids.  However, the most significant connection to water is seen in the Hebrew letter Mem.
The Letter Mem
The Hebrew letter Mem is related to the Latin word ‘ab’ as it is a preposition with very similar meaning.  It means to comes from or originate from something.
The letter Mem is a picture of waters.  In Ancient Hebrew the letter looked something like this:

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible pg 27

In the beginning all things came forth from or originated from water.
Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth;
Gen 1:2  and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,
Gen 1:3  then God said, Let light be! And there was light.
The letter Mem is also connected to the womb (place of origin).
The numerical value of Mem is 40 which is connected to water (the Flood 40 days and nights of water) and the womb, as an average human pregnancy takes about 40 weeks and it is believed that it takes 40 days from conception to the initial ‘formation’ of the fetus. The salinity of sea water is also the same as the ‘waters’ of the womb. The rebirth is also linked to 40 as Messiah Yahshua was baptized in the Jordan by John after 40 days of temptation in the wilderness.

A Womb and a Tomb
Mem is already associated with water and cleansing, but the depth of symbolism goes even further. In both Jewish and Christian understanding, immersion/baptism is a place of death and rebirth. Our old self dies, and our we are born again, clean and renewed. As if this simple symbolism were not enough, the letter Mem literally illustrates this concept.

There are two forms of the letter Mem, one used at the beginning or middle of words (open), and one only used to end a word (closed).
This concept of the letter Mem being a picture of the womb, reveals an important mystery of the Messiah being born from a virgin (closed womb/mem).

Isa 7:14  So, The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold! The virgin will conceive and will bring forth a son; and she shall call His name Immanuel.
Isa 9:6  For a Child is born; to us a Son is given; and the government is on His shoulder; and His name is called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isa 9:7  There is no end to the increase of His government and of peace on the throne of David, and on His kingdom, to order it, and to sustain it with justice and with righteousness, from now and forever. The zeal of YHWH of Hosts will do this.

In the Hebrew text an amazing mystery is revealed showing that the Prince of peace will come from the closed womb.  The closed mem should only occur at the end of a word, but in the text it occurs in the middle.  This is the only time in Scripture that this happens.


In Genesis 8, Noah sends forth a dove to when the waters had subsided enough for the earth to be seen.  This too, is a symbol of rebirth.  All throughout Scripture, the number 3 is associated with resurrection as can be seen in the Book of Jonah and the resurrection of Messiah for examples.  On the third day, the earth came forth out of the waters and brought forth life.

Gen 1:9  And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected to one place, and let the dry land appear. And it was so.
Gen 1:10  And God called the dry land, Earth. And He called the collection of the waters, Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth sprout tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed, the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it on the earth. And it was so.
Gen 1:12  And the earth bore tender sprouts, the plant seeding seed according to its kind, and the fruit tree producing fruit according to its kind, whichever seed is in it. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:13  And there was evening, and there was morning the third day.

The Spirit is linked with rebirth
1Pe 3:18  Because even Christ once suffered concerning sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God; indeed being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;
Rom 8:11  But if the Spirit of the One having raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, the One having raised the Christ from the dead will also make your mortal bodies live through the indwelling of His Spirit in you.

Joh 3:3   “Yes, indeed,” Yeshua answered him,  “I tell you that unless a person is born again from above, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Tit 3:5 He saved us, not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His compassion, through the washing of rebirth, and renewal by the Set-apart Spirit,
1Pe 1:23  Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
1Jo 3:9  Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
Jam 1:18  Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.
Jas 1:21  On account of this, putting away all filthiness and overflowing of evil, in meekness receive the implanted Word being able to save your souls.

Jonah’s name, who was ‘resurrected’ after 3 days and nights in the belly of the fish, means a dove.  Again the link between the Spirit and rebirth.

Jonah = “dove” יונה

The imagery of the dove in connection with the waters and origin/birth/rebirth is seen in Genesis 1

Gen 1:2  and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,

‘The Spirit of Elohim hovered over/moving over the waters’
The word translated as hovered comes from the following:
Here we see imagery of a bird hovering over its nest.  YHWH/Yahshua is described in this same imagery.
Deu 32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste, a howling wilderness. He encircled him and cared for him; He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
Mat 23:37  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her. How often I desired to gather your children in the way a bird gathers her chicks under her wings! And you did not desire it.

A replay of this was seen when the virgin Mary conceived and brought forth the Messiah…the Light of the world.  The Spirit hovered over her ‘waters/womb’, the Seed (the Word) was implanted and she brought forth the Tree of Life.
Luk 1:35  And answering, the angel said to her, The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you, and for this reason that Holy One being born of you will be called Son of God.

Psa 139:13  For You have possessed my inward parts; You wove me in the womb of my mother.
Psa 139:14  I will thank You, for with awesome ways I am distinguished; Your works are marvelous, and my soul knows it very well.
Psa 139:15  My bones were not hidden from You when I was made in secret; when I was woven in the depths of the earth.

Yet again the dove is seen in connection with the ‘rebirth’
Mat 3:16  And having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water. And, behold! The heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God coming down as a dove, and coming upon Him. 
Messiah comes from (ab) eternity
Latin Vulgate
Mic 5:2  et tu Bethleem Ephrata parvulus es in milibus Iuda ex te mihi egredietur qui sit dominator in Israhel et egressus eius ab initio a diebus aeternitatis
 
Mic 5:2  And you, Bethlehem Ephratah, being least among the thousands of Judah, out of you He shall come forth to Me to become One ruling in Israel; and His goings forth have been from of old, from the days of eternity.
In Micah 5:2 the link between ‘ab’ and the letter Mem is seen again as the Hebrew phrase ‘memay olam’ ‘from days of eternity’ where the prefix ‘mem’ is translated as ‘ab’ into the Vulgate.
Another interesting connection is seen here in that ‘eternity’ is from the Hebrew world ‘olam’ which means beyond the horizon in ancient Hebrew thought.  What was beyond the horizon?  The sea.  This is where the sun sets in the West. Hence, ‘from eternity’ is linked to the original waters of creation before anything came into being.  As seen above in Whitaker’s definition, ‘ab’ has the meaning of a ‘remote origin’ as in ‘time.’
Yahshua is the Living Waters (the source of all things)
Isa 12:2  Behold, God is my salvation {H3444}; I will trust, and not be afraid: for Yah YHWH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation {H3444}.
Isa 12:3  Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation{H3444}.H3444 ישׁוּעה yeshû‛âh
salvation, deliverance
Jer 2:13  For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water.
Jer 17:13  O LORD, the hope
{H4723 mikveh=collection of water/pool…baptism***} of Israel, all that forsake thee shall be ashamed, and they that depart from me shall be written in the earth (John 8), because they have forsaken the LORD, the fountain of living waters.
***Gal 3:27  For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
Those who have been baptized into Messiah have become a type of firstfruits of His creatures.  As seen in the study on אביב (aviv), the firstfruits come forth from the source* (origin) of all.
*Interestingly, the etymology of the English word ‘source’ comes from the French ‘sourse’ which means a fountainhead of a stream or river.  Again the connection to the waters at the beginning.

אביב ‘aviyv’ comes from the root אב (Father).  Aviv is referring to the next generation of the crop which came from the parent.  Aviv points to the Messiah who came forth from the Father (John 8:42; 16:28) and His body that comes forth from Him (John 17:18; 20:21).

Another connection between ‘ab’ (Latin) and ‘ab’ (Hebrew) is the letter Mem in the Aramaic square script.  The letter Mem is formed by combining the letter כ (kaf) and ו (vav).

Kaf is the picture of a hand.  Vav is a picture of a nail.  A nail in the hand.  This connects to the name YHWH even further:

 As seen above, the English word ‘source’ derives from the picture of a fountainhead of a stream or river.  This links to the Hebrew word ‘maqor’ which is pictured by a hole in the hand.Psa 36:9  For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.

Notice the connection between the word for fountain and giving birth.  Out of the side of Messiah came forth water and blood to give birth to His Bride.This again links back to ‘min’/Lat. ‘ab.’  ‘Min’ derives from the Hebrew root מן which has the meaning of continuation through the blood/DNA of a parent.

‘Min’ comes from the following root:

Notice that this word traces back to the blood/kind that is inherited from the father (אב).  Recall that this is the source of the word ‘etymology.’

The English word ‘from’ comes from the Gothic ‘fram’ which corresponds to the Proto-Indo-European ‘pr’ which traces back to the Greek word ‘pro.’ ‘Pro’ means ‘before, forward, in place of’ which again traces back to the Hebrew word ‘min.’  Messiah came from the Father

Joh 8:42  Then Jesus said to them, If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I went forth and have come from God. For I have not come from Myself, but that One sent Me.
Joh 13:3  Jesus knowing that the Father has given all things into His hands, and that He came out from God, and goes away to God,
Joh 16:27  for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came out from God.
From Heaven
Joh 6:32  Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Moses has not given you the bread out of Heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread out of Heaven.
Joh 6:33  For the bread of God is He coming down out of Heaven and giving life to the world.
Joh 6:34  Then they said to Him, Lord, always give us this bread.
Joh 6:35  Jesus said to them, I am the Bread of life; the one coming to Me will not at all hunger, and the one believing into Me will not thirst, never!
Joh 6:42  And they said, Is this not Jesus the son of Joseph, of whom we know the father and the mother? How does this One now say, I hav
e come down out of Heaven?

All things come forth FROM Messiah
Col 1:16  For all things were created in Him, the things in the heavens, and the things on the earth, the visible and the invisible; whether thrones, or lordships, or rulers, or authorities, all things have been created through Him and for Him.
Col 1:17  And He is before all things, and all things have subsisted in Him

Matter

The English word matter comes from the Latin ‘materia’ which means the inner wood of a tree.  As seen in Genesis 1:9-13click here, the Word/Davar is linked to trees.  Bible, codex, liber, scroll etc all trace back to trees.  In Hebrew, one of the words for matter is ‘Davar’ which means Word.

‘Mater’ in Latin also means the source/mother.  In Hebrew, the word for mother is אם ‘em’ which means ‘glue’.  This is what physical matter is, elements that are ‘glued’ together to form compounds.

A Dictionary of Word Origins pg 341 “Matter”

Matter comes via Anglo-Norman matere from Latin materia ‘matter.’  This was originally applied to the ‘hard inner wood of a tree,’ and etymologically denoted the ‘matrix’ or ‘mother’ from which the tree’s new growth came (it was derived of Latin mater ‘mother’).

Matrix of water

Biblical Basis of Modern Science pg 217

“It is significant that, long before men realized this universality of material structure, the bible had indicated that all things, including even human bodies, were made of the dust of the earth.

These basic elements were originally created (Gen. 1:1) as the fundamental components of matter in the space-matter-time cosmos (‘heavens’ – ‘earth’ – ‘beginning’) called into existence by the omnipotent Word of God (John 1:1-3).  This basic ‘unformed’ earth material (Gen. 1:2) was then ‘made ‘ or ‘formed’ by God into complex systems.  Originally suspended and dispersed in a vast matrix of water (Gen. 1:2; 2 Pet 3:5), all other elements were built up into a vast array of terrestrial and celestial bodies (1 Cor. 15:40) and, on the earth, both inorganic and living systems.”

It is interesting that in Maidu Indian the word ‘mom’ means water.  In Chinese, ‘mu yu’ means bath.  In Japanese ‘umi’ means sea.  In Ancient Egyptian water was ‘aman’ and ‘nun.’  The relation between ‘mom’ and water is also seen in Hebrew through the word מים ‘mayim’ which means water.

The origin of the word matrix, comes from ‘madrigal.’

Dictionary of Word Origins pg 332 ‘Madrigal’

“Etymologically, madrigal denotes ‘a simple song, such as might just have sprung from the mother’s womb.’  It comes ultimately from medieval Latin matricalis ‘simple, primitive,’ a derivative of Latin matrix ‘womb.’

Amazingly, all matter comes forth from a matrix of water in the beginning and was manifested through sound/a song.

Elegant Universe pg 14

“Matter is composed of atoms, which in turn are made from quarks and electrons.  According to string theory, all such particles are actually tiny loops of vibrating string.”

Elegant Universe pg 15

“String theory proclaims, for instance, that the observed particle properties, are a reflection of the various ways in which a string can vibrate.  Just as the strings on a violin or on a piano have resonant frequencies at which they prefer to vibrate – patterns that our ears sense as various musical notes and their higher harmonics – the same holds true for the loops of string theory….each of the preferred patterns of vibration of a string in string theory appears as a particle whose mass and force changes are determined by the string’s oscillatory pattern.”

It is no surprise that pipe, as in a musical instrument, comes from אבוב ‘aboob’ which is referring to the breasts of a mother whose ‘pipes’ feeds her child with milk.  אבוב is also the source of the word in Hebrew for reed of which flutes/pipes for music were made and papyrus which the Word was written upon.  אבוב comes from אב ‘av’ which means Father.

Going back to the etymology of mom/mother it is seen that numerous languages display this אם ‘am’ or the reverse ‘ma’ origin.

The English word ‘mother’ traces back to the Hebrew word מותר.  מותר comes from the root word תר which means a border or image, an outline.  Literally, the ‘mark of man.’  This is the source of the word תורה ‘torah.’  This is interesting to note as the Torah is the Image of the Most High and is in the feminine gender.  It was Eve who came forth from Adam’s rib/side.  Interestingly, the Word made flesh came forth from the side/bosom of the Father (John 1:18).

The word for rib/side in Hebrew is צלע which comes from the root צל which means shadow.  Interestingly, תר is the root of the word תור in Hebrew which means turtledove.  In the beginning the Spirit (likened unto a dove in Scripture) hovered over the waters.  The word for hover in Hebrew has the meaning of a bird overshadowing her chicks.  The connection here is fascinating.

Another connection between father and mother is the word דד mentioned above.  ‘Dud/dad’ is the source of the word ‘dad’ in English.  דד has the meaning of the bosom, in particular the nipples from whence food and sustenance comes to a baby.  It is no surprise that words in relation to food in numerous languages trace back to this word דד.

In Amazonian the word for vessel ‘datip’, pot is ‘titute’, basket of provision is ‘tetun,’ a basket for domestic us is ‘tsota,’ and an earthenware jar is ‘totopu.’  In Dravidian, a language of India, the word for small box is ‘tati,’ hollow bamboo tube ‘tota,’ water trough ‘totti,’ and a pit is ‘doddo.’  In Japanese the word for tube/pipe is ‘tsutsu.’  In Magyar a bagpipe is ‘duda’ which is another fascinating connection between a bag, mother/matter/matrix and music.  In Turkish a pipe or whistle is ‘duduk.’

דד is related to the word זן ‘zan’ which has the meaning of food that was cut and harvested and then stored in containers.  זן ‘zan’ is very similar to the meaning of מן ‘man’ of which Etymology traces back to.  זן ‘zan’ is a kind or species, so is מן ‘man.’ זן ‘zan’ is the root of the word מזון ‘mazon’ which means food, just as מן ‘man’ is the source of the word manna meaning bread/food. זן ‘zan’ is the source of the word אוזן ‘ozen’ which means ear and hearing.

Pro 1:8  My son, hear your father’s instruction, and do not forsake the law of your mother;

Another connection to a container and דד (nipple/breast) is the word טט ‘tit/tat.’  טט means a basket which was used to store materials, especially food.

Gathering

The study of Etymology is seen in the Shepherd who gathers us, leads us to the living waters.  In relation to language, the living waters is speaking of the language of creation, Hebrew/Edenic as mentioned above.

By looking at the concept of gathering in the ancient Hebrew an amazing story is told.

To begin, the letter ג ‘gimmel/gam’ has the meaning of gathering.  Literally, it is a picture of the foot walking towards water.  The imagery of the Shepherd leading His sheep to the still waters (Psalm 23:2) is seen here.  The word in Psalm 23:2 for ‘still’ displays this concept.

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible pg 22

The word in Hebrew for pool, or collection/gathering of waters is אגם which comes from this root גם.  As seen in Genesis 1:9-13click here, this collection of waters is a picture of the body of Messiah being gathered together.  This study has numerous connections and goes into much more depth pertaining to the concept of gathering at the waters and the Word.

The account of Moshe being drawn out of the waters after being hidden for 3 months is linked to this word.

Exo 2:3  And she was not able to hide him any longer, and she took a basket for him made of papyrus (Hebrew ‘gome’ גמא), and she daubed it with bitumen and with pitch. And she put the child in it, and placed it in the reeds by the lip of the Nile.

Moses is synonymous with the Word as He was the vehicle that YHWH used to bring forth the Torah (Luke 2:22-23; Deuteronomy 33:1-5; Mark 12:26).  Amazingly, ‘Gome’ is the source for papyrus/paper and the Bible.

The Hebrew letter gimmel/gam is a pictograph of a foot but also represents a camel.

The Holy Scriptures link the camel to the gathering of the waters:

Gen 24:11  And he made the camels kneel* outside the city, by a well of water at the time of the evening, the time that women go out to draw.

*In Hebrew this word is barakh which connects with the word gamal through the English word ‘pool.’  The word pool is translated from 3 different Hebrew words.  Agam, miqveh, and berakah.

This word comes from the root:

Notice that the parent root of this word is בר, bar mentioned in the prophecy of Zephaniah about the pure lip that will be returned to mankind.  This is the word for Son (Psalm 2:12) who is made King.  It is significant to note that every knee (berakh) shall bow before the King, and every tongue (pure lip) shall confess that He is LORD.

Isa 45:22  Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.
Isa 45:23  I have sworn by Myself, the Word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, that to Me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
Isa 45:24  He shall say, Only in YHWH do I have righteousness and strength; to Him he comes; and they are ashamed, all who are angry with Him.
Php 2:10  that at the name of Jesus “every knee should bow,” of heavenly ones, and earthly ones, and ones under the earth,
Php 2:11  and “every tongue should confess” that Jesus Christ is “Lord,” to the glory of God the Father. Isa. 45:23

Rom 14:11  For it has been written, “As I live, says the Lord, that every knee will bow to Me, and every tongue confess to God.” Isa. 45:23

‘Bar’ is also the root for the word for soap.

Washing of the body, as well as washing of the clothing points to Messiah.  At Mt. Sinai, Yisrael was to was their clothing and be ready for the 3rd day (gimmel = 3) when they would meet YHWH.

The word above, ‘bar’, is translated as son in Psalm 2:12; Proverbs 31:2 & Daniel 3:25, and is used in reference to the Word in Psalm 19:8.  The link here is clear.  The need for the body & our clothing to bathe in water and soap is a picture of man needing to be covered in the garments of the Word/Yahshua.

Psa 24:3  Who shall go up into the hill of YHWH? And who shall rise in His holy place?
Psa 24:4  He who has clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity and has not sworn deceit.
Psa 24:5  He shall lift up the blessing
(berakhah) from YHWH, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

What is the blessing (berakah)?

Psa 133:3  like the dew of Hermon coming down on the mountains of Zion; for there YHWH commanded the blessing: life till everlasting.

Act 3:25  You are sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God appointed our fathers, saying to Abraham, “Even in your Seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.“ Gen. 22:18
Act 3:26  Having raised up His child Jesus, God sent Him first to you, blessing you in turning away each one from your iniquities.

The letter ‘gimmel’ is literally a picture of the foot which is linked to bringing the message of the Word/Gospel (Isaiah 52:7).  The Hebrew word for foot רגל also has the meaning of traveling with a message.  The Gospel message gathers mankind together (Romans 10:12-15).  One of the gifts given to the preachers of the Gospel was the gift of other tongues (Mark 16:17; Acts 2) which ultimately leads mankind back to the Messiah, the את (Aleph & Tav/Alpha & Omega).  It does not matter what language one hears the Gospel in.  It leads to Messiah.  Every word of every language derives from Edenic Hebrew of which every letter and word points directly to Messiah.

The next word in Hebrew which has the meaning of gathering is גן ‘gan’ which is commonly translated as ‘garden.’  A garden is a ג ‘gimmel’ which has the sense of gathering, as mentioned above, and נ ‘nun’ which means seeds.  Jeff Benner defines ‘gan’ as  ‘a place for growing crops and is often surrounded by a rock wall or hedge to protect it from grazing animals.’  ‘Gan’ is the source of the word genesis and beginning which is appropriate as this is what the Holy Scriptures speak of in the opening chapters of the Bible.  In relation to the current study, it is the language of this Garden that gathers mankind to the King as spoken of by the prophet Zephaniah.

As seen above, the word in Hebrew for light אר has the meaning of order.  It also means to gather, as in the gathering of things together and placing them orderly in a box.  Or it could be said, gathering together His people and placing them in the Garden where the still waters are located.

Psa 43:3  O send out Your light and Your truth; let them lead me and bring me to the mount of Your holiness and to Your tabernacles.

Notice His Light (His Word) and His Truth (‘emet’ the origin of Etymology) leads man to His mountain where the Son (bar) reigns.

The word for lip in Hebrew סף also gives the sense of gathering.  אסף ‘asaph’ has the meaning of a gathering of people to one place.  סף is the root of the word סןף which is speaking of the bank of a body of water.  The study on Genesis 1:9-13 speaks in more detail on this connection to the body of Messiah.  The different aspects of the riverbank point to the gathering of the body of Messiah and the resurrection of the dead.

The Hebrew word עד which is translated as ‘witness’ also means gathering.  It literally means to ‘see the door.’  This is speaking of the gathering of people to the tent of meeting.  The Tabernacle was a picture of Messiah, who is the Door.  The feasts מועד ‘moed’ come from this root, as well as the word for betrothal יעד ‘ya’ad.’  The word חג ‘chag’ is also translated as feast in Hebrew and also has the meaning of gathering.   The Scriptures define the feasts as ‘miqra qodesh’ or holy gatherings.  ‘Miqra’ comes from the word קר which literally means ‘gather the men.’  It was at these feasts that the Name of YHWH was ‘called’ upon.  The word here for ‘call’ is קרא from the קר root.  קרא means to gather to a meeting to hear the Word read from a scroll.

The Tabernacle was also a picture of the human body.   The door of the Tabernacle is equivalent with the human mouth (Psalm 141:3).  It was at the Tabernacle where YHWH met with Israel (Numbers 17:4), and spoke to Moses ‘mouth to mouth’ (Numbers 12:8).

The word for brood in Hebrew is דגר which means a gathering of a brood under the wings of a hen.

Mat 23:37  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her. How often I desired to gather your children in the way a bird gathers her chicks under her wings! And you did not desire it.

This gathering under the shadow of His Wings is the meaning of being a little guy in His Eye.

Psa 17:8 Keep me as the pupil(LITTLE MAN), the daughter of the eye; hide me in the shadow of Your wings,

כאישׁון בת־עין Ishon (man) bat (daughter) ayin (eye)…the little guy/girl in the eye

Deu 32:7  Remember the ancient days, consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will declare to you, your elders, and they shall say to you;
Deu 32:8  when the Most High divided to the nations their inheritance; when He separated the sons of Adam, He set up the bounds of the peoples, according to the number of the sons of Israel.
Deu 32:9  For YHWH’s portion is His people; Jacob is the lot of His inheritance.
Deu 32:10  He found him in a desert land, and in the waste, a howling wilderness. He encircled him and cared for him; He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
Deu 32:11  As the eagle stirs up its nest; it hovers over its young; it spreads out its wings and takes it, and bears it on its wing.
Deu 32:12  YHWH alone led him, and there was no strange god with him.

Abiding in the cleft of the rock = abiding under the shelter of His wings

Psa 61:4 I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah. Abiding in the Tabernacle = abiding in the shelter of His wings

Rev 7:15  Because of this they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His sanctuary. And He sitting on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them.

Psa 27:5  For in the day of evil He shall hide me in His shelter (sukkah); in the secrecy of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me up on a rock.

Samson dwelling in the cleft of the Rock (Messiah) at Etam (Eagles wings).

The root word of Etam is at (ayin tet)

ayit

Here we see that the word Etam means an eagle’s wings in the sense of wrapping.  Samsom dwelt in the cleft of the Rock (Rock = Messiah 1 Cor 10:4) in the city of Etam (wrapped in eagles wings)

It is also interesting that the word for pen/stylus comes from this same root word and is associated with the eagle’s/bird of prey’s talons.

ayit 2

It is interesting to note that Samson in Hebrew is ‘Shimshon’ which comes from the word for sun ‘shemesh.’  Amazingly, the Scriptures liken the movement of the sun in the heavens to the Gospel and languageclick here.

Rom 10:16  But not all obeyed the gospel, for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” Isa. 53:1
Rom 10:17  Then faith is of hearing, and hearing through the Word of God.
Rom 10:18  But I say, Did they not hear? Yes, rather, “into all the earth their voice went out, and to the ends of the world their words.”
LXX-Psa. 18:5; MT-Psa. 19:4

Psa 19:1  To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recounting the glory (Messiah is the Glory Revelation 21:23) of God, and the expanse proclaiming His handiwork.

Psa 19:2  Day by day they pour forth (a flowing out from within, related to נבא/prophecy) speech (omer from root מל/word), and night to night reveals (חוה this is the name of ‘Eve’ the bride) knowledge.

On a deeper level verse 2 is stating that the sun, moon and stars and their courses are prophesying the Word and revealing knowledge of the bride.  The movement of the heavenly bodies teach the Gospel of Messiah and His bride (the Seed)
Psa 19:3  There is no speech, nor are there words where their voice is not heard.

Psa 19:4  Their voice is gone out into all the earth, and their words to the ends of the world.

Psa 19:5  and he comes forth like a bridegroom from his canopy. He rejoices like a hero to run a race;
Psa 19:6  his going forth from the end of the heavens, and his orbit to their ends; and nothing is hidden from his heat.

Further, there is an amazing connection between the sun and the living waters of which Etymology is a picture of.

At sunrise the sky appears red

This word comes from ‘dam’ meaning blood.

‘Dam’ literally means waters from the door.  As in the living waters that come forth from the Temple, or the living waters of blood that come forth from the heart.  The sun moving through the zodiac is also a picture of this.  Psalm 19 speaks of the sun following the path of the zodiac and coming forth from ‘his canopy’ representing the Temple.  A healthy heart pumps on average 72 times a minute, the sun moves a degree through the ecliptic every 72 years.  It seems that the beating of the human heart corresponds with the movement of the sun through the ecliptic.

http://davidpratt.info/pattern1.htm#p1

The ‘circle’ traced by the earth’s axis around the north ecliptic pole is not smooth but wavy, as the moon’s gravitational pull causes the earth to ‘nod’ about once every 18 years (currently 18.6 years), a movement known as nutation. The circle therefore contains about 1440 waves, since 18 x 1440 = 25,920. Note that the average human heartbeat is equal to 72 beats a minute, and on average we breathe about 18 times a minute. 72 years (= 6+60+6 or 6×12) is said to be the ‘ideal’ lifespan of a human being, during which time the sun moves through one degree of the zodiac in the precessional cycle. A human breathes 72 times in 4 minutes, the time required for the earth to turn 1 degree on its axis. In 24 hours (86,400 seconds) we breathe 18 x 1440 = 25,920 times, equal to the number of years in the precessional cycle.

According to the National Geographic’s ‘Incredible Human Machine’ it takes 72 muscles for man to speak.  The Hebrew word for time, עת, means to see the mark.  What is the mark?  It is when the sun rises directly east (qedem ‘sun of blood’) at the time of the tequphah which literally means the ‘sun speaks.’

According to Ecclesiastes 1:5-6, the sun moves upon the wind/ruach again linking to the blood which flows through the human body and the living waters which flow forth from the throne of Elohim.

The path of the sun through the zodiac comes from the following Hebrew word:

According to the Revelation 22:1-2, the river of life that comes forth from the throne of Elohim, is linked to 12 fruits of the tree of life.

The word for the constellations/zodiac in Hebrew is ‘mazzaroth’ which traces back to the Hebrew word nazar.

What was on the crown of the High Priest?  The sacred name of YHWH (Exodus 29:6; 39:30)  According to Josephus (Wars of the Jews Book 5 Chapter 5 Section 7) the sacred name consisted of 4 vowels which are pronounced with our breath.  The Hebrew word for ‘name,’ is ‘shem’ which means breath/wind.  It is the root for the word ‘shamayim’ which means heaven.  ‘Shem’ is also the root of the word ‘shemesh’ which means the sun.  Every breath we take we are proclaiming His Name.  Each breath we take brings oxygen into our lungs which brings life to our blood and to our cells.

Going back to the rock of Etam and eagle’s wings…

Another association of the eagles wing’s is the Word.  Abiding under the shadow of His wings = abiding in the Word/Messiah.

Dwelling in the cleft of the Rock is also teaching about intimate relationship with the Almighty.

Exo 33:18  And he said, I pray, let me see Your glory.

Exo 33:19  And He said, I will cause all My goodness to pass before your face. And I will call out* the name of YHWH (*qara is associated with the physical manifestation of YHWH on the earth, this will be addressed in a future study, Yah willing) before your face. And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy.

Exo 33:20  And He said, You are not able to see My face; for no man can see Me and live.

Exo 33:21  And YHWH said, Behold, a place by Me! And you shall stand on a rock.

Exo 33:22  And as My glory is passing it will be that I will put you in a cleft of the rock; and I will cover My hand over you during My passing.

Exo 33:23  And I will remove My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face cannot be seen.

1Ki 19:9  And he came there to the cave, and lodged there; and behold, the Word of YHWH came to him, and said to him, What are you doing here, Elijah?

1Ki 19:12  And after the earthquake was a fire, but YHWH was not in the fire; and after the fire came a still, small voice. The still, small voice of YHWH is what we hear when we are walking intimately with Him.

In the beginning, the Spirit hovered over the waters.  The word for hover here links to a bird overshadowing her nest.  The Almighty then said let there be light.  Hence, all of His creation, in particular language, is a shadow pointing back to Him.

Finally, the voice of the Shepherd קל has the meaning of gathering, as in the sheep gathering to the Shepherd when they hear His Voice. The word for ‘church’ or assembly קהל comes from this root.

It is the Voice of Messiah who gathers together mankind.

Joh 10:2  But the one entering through the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
Joh 10:3  The doorkeeper opens to him, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.
Joh 10:4  And when he puts forth his own sheep, he goes in front of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice.

Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.

What language did He use?  Hebrew.

Act 26:14  And all of us falling to the ground, I heard a voice speaking to me, and saying in the Hebrew dialect, Saul, Saul why do you persecute Me? It is hard for you to kick against the prods.

Etymology is a shadow picture of Messiah which reveals that every language traces back to Hebrew.  It is one of the tools that the Most High is using to gather mankind to Himself.

In my etymology studies I use primarily Jeff Benner’s work and the research of Isaac Mozeson.  I have tried to make sure I always give credit to these men when making direct quotes.  In many cases I have further elaborated on what I believe the Lord has shown me in regards to the words being discussed which should not be attributed to these men.  They may or may not agree with my findings, Isaac Mozeson has expressed to me his disagreements with numerous parts of this study.  I respect their opinions either way.  If the distinction between my findings and theirs is not clear, please email me at littleguyintheeye@gmail.com and I will try to correct the indistinguishable parts of the study shared.

Direct quotes from Isaac Mozeson’s research are in quotations with reference to the source of his work from whence these quotes have been acquired.  I have highlighted his quotes in green.
