The language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 4, DTube Video #2


Welcome to my DTube Hebrew reading & language series.

The full study is now on line covering the Alef-Beyt here in my blog. This is a beginners program to teach letters, vowels, and reading. The vowels are marked in this bible and are designed to help avoid confusion on what a word is and how it is pronounced. The confusion is obvious in the hundreds of interpretations globally.

Today we are continuing in Genesis 4:4-6

The first three verses brought the boys from conception, through childhood and into their professions. We continue on as Abel's sheep was looked upon with regard by Elohim.

Then the offering of Cain was not looked upon with regard, which made Cain "very hot" and his "his face, they fell."

It is interesting that his face is plural (they). It is common in Hebrew for anger to be expressed as one's face or nose getting hot. I am not sure why one offering was seen as good and another as not...

We leave it at this point because I do not want to present the main point before it is read. I usually limit my readings to one screen full of Hebrew, which is plenty when learning to read.

There are a few words that may be new to you:
Gam = Also
Meod = Very
Lamah = Why
Pnav = His face
Fneycha = Your face

Note that the the letter Pey with a dot in the middle is pronounced as "P" and without, like "F". See his face and your face above.

Here is the English to compare. When there are three male persons speaking it is hard to find the right word order in your mind.


It sometimes helps to see the interpretation thought out in English.

I didn't yet watch the video! I see you shared few words yeah they are new to me! Great to see this weekly article and the way you write it made things very interesting! Thank you and have a great week ahead!

Shabbat Shalom~


This may be a very basic question, but I don't know, so I'll ask. In the preceding image, why is it that the word is translated Yahweh if it's pronounced Yahovah (Jehovah)? I've seen both in Bibles, but are they different?

You mentioned that you didn't know why one of the offerings was accepted and another wasn't. Hopefully you weren't leaving your explanation for next week with the continuation of the passage. If so, don't read my thoughts here! :)

When it talks about Cain's offering, it says he brought an offering from the fruit of the ground. There are no qualifiers or descriptors on it. however, when it talks about Abel's offering, it says he brought from the firstborn of his flock, and that he brought from the fat of them. It sounds like Abel really brought the best of what he had, whereas (I as an English speaker would infer from the lack of adjectives that) Cain brought offerings that weren't the best of what he had.

God often doesn't look at what we do, but at why we do it. Later, when looking for someone to anoint king of Israel, God tells Samuel that "man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." We can possibly surmise that God saw that Abel strongly desired to honor God, and that he trusted God, but Cain was giving the offering as a technicality. I'm not sure, but that's my feeling.

What are your thoughts? Or is that something that you'll look at more this coming week?

Awesome Dtube! Very pleasant use of media and teaching techniques. Thank you, sir.

All my life I have liked to study the Bible and to understand its passages, what I find interesting to study in the Hebrew language, I join the study. Regarding the lesson, when talking about the Shabat it is of great controversy for many religions, that is why it is very important to have the original writing to clarify its meaning, thanks for your teachings ...

"In modern Hebrew, only children need a niqqud or vowel marking for each letter."
This is quite educating

Gam = Also
Meod = Very
Lamah = Why
Pnav = His face
Fneycha = Your face
That is going to be easy for me

hebrew is a holy language. so we all need to know about this language especially who loves jesus.................
