Re: גֶּלֶד GELED, Job 16:15

Some claim to discern in the Hebrew גלד GLD, 'solid', an echo of the IE: gold, clod (namely, frozen), clot, cloud, and include (in-close).

גֶּלֶד GELED, Job 16:15

We read there שַׂק תָּפַרְתִּי עֲלֵי גִלְדִּי NIV: "I have sewed sackcloth over my skin" but with גִלְדִּי being possibly also "body". Ex. 16:14 says וַתַּעַל שִׁכְבַת הַטָּל וְהִנֵּה עַל פְּנֵי הַמִּדְבָּר דַּק מְחֻסְפָּס דַּק כַּכְּפֹר עַל הָאָרֶץ KJV: " And when the dew t...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

The Hebrew דֶלֶת DELET, 'door', is from the root דל , a kin of תל , and hence דֶלֶת is a תֶלֶת , the hanging תלוּי flap over the tent opening. See the shape of the Greek letter Δ delta. Slightly turned and rounded it becomes the Roman letter D. The cursive version is δ with a small curl on top. The ...

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

רגז RGZ, 'angry', has nothing to do with the אַרְגַּז ARGAZ, 'box, chest, coffer', of 1Sam 6:8 וּלְקַחְתֶּם אֶת אֲרוֹן יהוה וּנְתַתֶּם אֹתוֹ אֶל הָעֲגָלָה וְאֵת כְּלֵי הַזָּהָב אֲשֶׁר הֲשֵׁבֹתֶם לוֹ אָשָׁם תָּשִׂימוּ בָאַרְגַּז מִצִּדּוֹ וְשִׁלַּחְתֶּם אֹתוֹ וְהָלָךְ NIV: "take the ark of the ...

Re: Yahweh Adonai

English, indeed, tends to soften g into y as in gard - yard, regal - royal, but this has nothing to do with Hebrew. The letter ן N of לשוֹן is, moreover, possibly not radical.

Re: Yahweh Adonai

רֶחֶם 'womb, bowels', is related to רוֹך, 'softness', as is רחמים, 'compassion', and רוּחַ, 'wind, spirit'. What ῥῆγμα 'cleft, chasm', has to do with it is not clear to me.

Re: Mycenaean Hebrew

תלמיד You declare: "And for the last time, Hebrew and Greek are not related linguistically. "Hebrews" comes from the root עבר. It has no relation whatsoever to any Greek word. None." Yet, I would be careful about emphatic, sweeping and absolute statements, and perpetuated academ...
