The language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 3, DTube Video #3

4년 전

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. In modern Hebrew, only children need a niqqud or vowel marking for each letter. Old manuscripts also usually have vowels marked.

We are reading Genesis 3:7-9

Here we have the first of the many consequences of the fall. Their eyes were opened and they knew (found out) that they were naked. Then they tried to cover themselves and ended up hiding when they heard God walking in the "wind" of the day, wind and spirit are the same word in Hebrew.

I have always wondered why God was never mentioned again as walking anywhere as we go on from here. Curious.

The word wind is marked in the reading below. The rest of the markings are related to pronouns, this week we see how they/them fit into words.

In English, the subject pronoun is they, which is usually followed by some action.

See the second line: they knew

The object comes after the action or after a preposition

They knew that (there was) nakedness of them.

Translation does not always work, so to speak. Simply stated, the verb "to be" is rarely used in Hebrew compared to other languages. This impacts other things.

Each of the markings below has a subj. or an obj. near them.
Subjects are the ones doing the action. Objects are the ones impacted by the action or preposition.

Ned and Dan love - - SBD's inside wallets.
subj. and subj. verb - obj. prep. obj.

They save them in - them.
subj. verb obj. prep. obj.

Today's reading


From the top

An explanations of the markings made above.

The tav (Ti or Tee) is they (they opened)

  • this tav refers to the "eyes" (next word)
  • the "nah" at the end gives the meaning of suddenly.

...of the two of them (Sh'nay-hem), and them is the obj. of the prep. "of"

They (vav) knew that (there was) nakedness of them (hem)
They (vav) sewed...
They (vav) made...
... for them (hem), and them is the obj. of the prep. "for"
They (vav) heard...

It is very interesting to learn, everything is new. Many people interpret the Bible in different ways. Thank you for teaching us.

Thank you, sir, for coming back with interesting words from the bible, I was waiting for your post, I am thinking to read the Bible and Holy Quran, In my own language.

Interesting how similar the word naked is to the Hebrew word for serpent... Nachash

Posted using Partiko iOS


Old English nacod, of Germanic origin; related to Dutch naakt and German nackt, from an Indo-European root shared by Latin nudus and Sanskrit nagna .... in Sanskrit the word Nagas means serpent

Very Interesting

I love these publications and I was waiting for this post to continue learning and in this way to better interpret the word thanks for the post, the teaching and the time you take to teach this language


@hebrew, That would be another greatest video and context lesson of Ivrit language. Video pronunciation very clever to understand. Perfect introduction about Genesis 3:6-7 this time. I appreciate your valuable task here. Thanks for sharing.

Shabbat Shalom

Siempre muy aceptada su leccion hebrea, gracias por compartir cada semana tan interesante lectura.

@hebrew - Sir today reading of Genesis 3:7-9 is very nice... That images & teaching materials are so good Sir... Nice sharing & god bless you Sir...


It is always nice to read his publications about the word of God.
and it is a curious fact that after realizing that they were naked, it is not read again that God walks from one place to another in the world, it is as if we were hiding from that moment until the moment we saw him. shame. because it is clear that God continues among us at all times thanks for sharing his teachings that are always among us

Teacher @hebrew is back ladies and gents!

Everyone would agree with my stance that we all were even unable to understand the format of this superb language before. We should appreciate the efforts Teacher @hebrew putting to spread the sacred teachings of the Bible all over. Since I am following his blogs my basic understanding about the language certainly has improved.

For all the informative and beautiful blogs about this language #Hebrew I thank you from the core of my heart.

Since I was little I love reading the Bible, I come from a religious family, that's why I love this educational publication, where I can learn from the original language of the Bible. In this opportunity of genesis I see the importance in the separation of masculine and feminine, I will go further in their publications to follow more closely their studies ... Thank you for teaching us ... I gave him resteem so that others also follow this important study

I’m surprised that wind and spirit are the same words in Hebrew. It could at some point be confusing if you don’t know Hebrew language perfectly. Interesting lesson though! They (vav)- this has stuck in my mind long time ago when you mentioned it for the first time.

When I was learning, I searched for something just like this! He reads slow enough to repeat and possibly absorb which vowel sounds go where, but without the meanings of the words added to this reading, there is little chance of adding and memorizing vocabulary. (He has a German accent as I have an American one).

Its great videos sir i am practising the vocabulary daily you have created amazing videos sir they are so simple thank you so much @hebrew.

Good lesson on hebrew words . You are a master of Hebrew . Shabbat shalom
