  Learning The Construction Of The Hebrew Letters

ABOUT THE CONSTRUCTION

As you learn the Hebrew language, it will act as a witness to the truth you already know. The more about the bible that you know, Hebrew will provide a witness to it. The more about mathematics, sciences or anything true, The Hebrew language will always provide a perfect counterweight and bring balance to it.


There are many levels and layers to Hebrew, in fact it is a lot like pealing back an onion. I can also describe it much like a Rubik’s cube, with it's so many different possibilities. Think of the complexity of Gods creation, for example: the uniqueness of a snow flake compared to a snow storm, or the galaxies of the universe compared to where we live. The word of God is alive and as unique and complex as looking into a microscope or telescope.


Hebrew is a antediluvian language (pre-flood)(1)
Hebrew is a pictorial language
Hebrew is a chemical language
Hebrew is a biological language
Hebrew is a mathematical language


Notice that I keep calling Hebrew a language, but it would be good for you to understand that while it is a language, it is also a form of syllabic writing; much like other ancient forms of pictorial writing.


Some forms of writing are not necessarily actual languages, but instead are symbols that make sounds. A good example of syllabic writing would be ancient cuneiform. Cuneiform is a syllabic kind of writing with about a thousand symbols. Each symbol combines one out of many possible sounds that you can make with your mouth. For you to understand more about these sounds, think about single letters and then combinations of two or three letters each being a picture. For example: A, Da, Ba, Sha, would be four different pictures representing these four sounds.


Imagine now a scribe being able to scribe many different languages using one form of writing. It might also be safe to say that an ancient scribe did not necessarily need to know the exact or precise language or dialect that he was scribbling, he just needed to have good ears and write down the sounds that he heard. Anyone listening when it was being read back could then understand it, if it was in their language. However, the writing or symbols are not "a language" in themselves, they are simply symbols that represent sounds.


In Hebrew there are many numbers, symbols, pictures and meanings mixed within the letters themselves. Without any real understanding at all, there are 22 letters and 5 sofits. However, with understanding, there are thousands of individual entities alone. As letters and words are brought together, you will see more permutations and combinations than able to count.


In the English language, we call each symbol of our alpha-bet a “letter”.
In Hebrew each letter is called an “ot”, which in English means “a sign and a wonder”.
"Letters" (plural) the Hebrew "Aleph-Bet" is Otiot {oat-ee-oat} "signs and wonders".


The first step to understand Hebrew is to learn the letters! (have you done this?)


This is as easy (or easier) then learning your ABC's.


Now as you learn the pictures, numbers and other details of each letter, you will begin to see inside or next to each letter and see for yourself and understand. This is because Hebrew is different from any other language in the way that it describes what it is.


The closest language example would be the chemical language. Just about everyone knows H20 is two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen which results in water. See how the chemical language teaches what it is made of? Hebrew works the same way. Learning all of the different components of Hebrew (this section), is like learning a periodic type table which reveals the chemical makeup.


Each letter has a unique sound, name, shape, literal meaning, symbolic or spiritual meaning, picture and mathematical number.


Each letter is also assembled and made up using other letters.


This means that you can also break down its construction, which then creates even more numbers, pictures and understandings.


As a child we were taught the alphabet and then went on to learn words, mathematics and then other sciences.


In ancient times Hebrew children were taught the same way, but instead of simply learning the Hebrew letters of the aleph-bet, they learned how the letters were assembled. They also learned what each line of each letter meant in all of their different forms, as they were constructed one letter (or even number) on top of or even pointing to another. If a letter was made up of three lines this could be pictures, numbers or meanings on top of each other. For example picture upon picture upon number upon meaning.


Isaiah was reminding the Jewish people how they had all been taught as children, when he made the statement shown below:

“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little” (Isaiah 28:10)


Even during this time in history, I do not think everyone that learned understood it. It was a sort of programming, that enabled those with a true heart to have the ability to understand if they were to look into the perfect law. As like in those days I do not expect those reading this page to comprehend everything written here, or to even come close to reaching a perfect understanding of Hebrew. I am not convinced that there is anyone that has come close to this that resides on this earth.


I do however desire and hope to convey or at least in some small way testify to a splinter of the depth of it.


Let me try to explain one easy visual thought to help you see some of the complexity of this awesome packed language:


In English the letter “A” is not a word, it is only a letter.
It does not have it's own spelling, it is simply “A” and nothing else.
However, the letter “A” in Hebrew is not only a letter, but also a word. This word has several meanings and numeric values both earthly and spiritually, depending on how it is voweled and even assembled.

The letter Aleph () can mean God, or mighty mouth of God.
(This is clearly seen in it's makeup of aleph-lamed (God) + pey (meaning mouth))

Aleph (the letter) connects heaven and earth together.
Aleph (the letter) is the number one (1).
Aleph (the word) is the number (111).
Aleph (the word) is made of three letters and three pictures.
Aleph (the letter) is made of three parts being three other letters and pictures and words, which are also each made of three more parts all containing their own numerical values.


I can go on here both pictorially and numerically and teach for days, but let me keep this to one simple picture teaching.


The following will teach us one of many things that we can know about the first letter and how it, (the first letter aleph and number 1) can be the creator of all things.


Before creation the Hebrew letter Pey is simply God's mouth.
In fact it was scratched in stone after the flood as an ellipse
(representing a mouth).



When this letter is drawn into a the Hebrew form, the Hebrew letter Bet can be seen inside the white space of it.


Bet is the second letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet depending on your view.
(Some say that it is the first actual letter, seeing that the first letter “aleph” is (or represents) God himself and the first letter in the bible (Genesis 1:1 is a bet with the meaning of “IN” the beginning.)


The Hebrew letter Pey means mouth.
If you were to say mouth in Hebrew, you would say pey.
It is also a letter of the alpeh-bet found in different forms.
Two of these forms depend on if it is found inside of a word (seen as ) or at the end of the Hebrew word (seen as ). In both of these cases the sound, grammar and everything linguistic is the same, it only changes spiritually (and numerically in some cases depending on many different methods of Hebrew gematria).


Here in this example if you look closely at the Hebrew letter, you will see that the mouth has opened


Remember how I told you that a Hebrew letter bet is found inside of the white space of the pey? Well here when God opens his mouth, the bet comes out.


But how can we see this? How do we see God opening his mouth? The first letter is aleph and represents God.

Aleph is also a word spelled right to left
If you want to say God in Hebrew, you would say aleph-lamed which is “EL”


So here you can easily see “God's mouth” (right to left) spelled out as as aleph-lamed and the picture and understanding of Pey (God)+pey (mouth) + and also see the picture of the bet coming out first and then the rest of the aleph-bet (as your understanding opens).



There are other forms of Hebrew gematria, these are shown so that you can begin. There are also MANY other visual forms that are easy to see such as the first man and his chemical makeup (many different levels) much of which is already being publicly taught.


Here is the Hebrew aleph-bet in three of the most common forms


Manual or Block Print (regular hand writing) Book Print (book type printing) Ktav Ashurit (hand writing using calligraphy example Torah scroll)


Ancient Pictographs for each letter


The pictographs shown below have been taken from ancient writings carved in stone. Other Ancient Pictographs Circa BC 15


AS YOU LEARNED IN THE ALEPH-BET SECTION


There are reasons that we do things. We learn the Hebrew pictures for our memory. Our brain stores visual in it's own segment, which has also been designated in a long term memory area of the brain.
Shown above inside the ( )'S you will see the Hebrew Letter.
Next to that is the Ancient pictograph's down through time (15 BC) for each letter. Most of these have been found engraved on stone at different archaeological dig sites and have been studied for hundreds of years now. Some of the symbols and their true meanings have been good guesses, while others are more clear cut.


Feel free to use your creativity here as that is what others have already been doing since ancient times. Whatever helps you to understand or remember is a real good thing!


Even when you surf the net add too your knowledge and list of possible meanings, as anything could be an open door to some Godly revelation later. Also be aware that these picture meanings are only the beginning.

A LIST OF THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE LETTERS

As for this section, I do not expect you to memorize it all and there will be no tests :-)
Use it for reference.

All I expect from you in this section is to learn how some of the letters are constructed.

This information will be of use to you later. We will get more into meanings and interpretations in the “Understanding Hebrew” page sections and book.

This is where I will introduce you to many new areas of learning, as we come back around and learn the spiritual meanings of what you have learned here.

But for now continue on to the rest of this section where I hope to help you to see where you can go from here.


ABOUT THIS LIST


This list is NOT meant to be exhaustive in any way.

Please continue to learn GODLY polysemes and knowledge elsewhere and hold it in reserve waiting on the Holy Spirit to bring understanding and the ability to compare spiritual things.


Aleph: Formed by two Yod's, one to the upper right and the other to the lower left, joined by a diagonal Vav. This can be understood also as a man connecting heaven to earth; two hands and a nail; an Ox head as a red heifer, sacrifice, etc..

Hebrew Word Spelling: Aleph-Lamed-Pey/Fey Sofit


Bet: Three connected Vavs with an opening on the left.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Bet-Yod-Tav



 

Gimmel: A Vav with a Yod as a foot. A person in motion

Hebrew Word Spelling: Gimmel-Mem-Lamed

 

Dalet: Two lines forming a right angle, with a corner point. A man bent over.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Dalet-Lamed-Tav




Hey: Three lines; the two lines of the Dalet together with an unattached left foot (Yod). Dagesh Type: Mappiq

The mappiq is used to mark the letter (hey) and sometimes (but rarely) the aleph, indicating that it is to be pronounced as a consonant. Example God's name (Yah) without the mappiq would be simply ya. However the mappiq also changes the meaning. Most people do not stop to think that God's name might have a meaning. Example the Bride. The Hebrew for King is (i omitted final Kaf for visual) To change this word to Queen, we add the and have the word (Queen). However if we add the mappiq to the hey ( ) it no longer means King or Queen, but now makes a statement: "her king"

Hebrew Word Spelling: Hey-Aleph


Vav: A vertical line, A pillar, A man standing upright.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Vav-Aleph-Vav (One vertical line)

NOTE that there are two other ways to spell Vav (22) and(12) Also another consideration is that either the presence of a Cholam or Shuruk can add (1) to your total

 


Zayin: A “vav” whose head extends in both directions and thus appears as a crown.
Scepter of a King.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Zayin-Yod-Yod-Nun (sofit)

 


Chet: A vav on the right, a zayin on the left, with a thin, hunchback bridge (chatoteret) connecting them above.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Chet-Yod-Tet

Notice this font construction teaches about how messiah shares with the bride?
The vav on the right has no tag or tagin naturally.
However the zayin has three. Clearly you see above the zayin shared his tagin to make a bridge, tent, wedding. These tags are swords, daggers or zayins themselves in construction. Each tag takes on the number 7 for perfection.

 


Tet: A vessel with an inverted rim.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Tet-Yod-Tav


Yod: A "formed” point: a crown above and a “pathway” below. The smallest of the letters; The only letter suspended in midair.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Yod-Vav-Dalet

 

Kaf: Three connected lines with rounded corners; the crown on the head of a prostrating king.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Kaf-Pey/Fey Sofit



Lamed: A vav – whose head (Yod) looks downward – on a Kaf.
“A tower soaring in air.” The only letter ascending above the line.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Lamed-Mem-Dalet

Mem: The open Mem – a square with a small opening at its lower left corner.
The final Mem – complete square.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Mem-Mem Sofit

Nun: A “bent-over” vessel – the “bent-over servant.” The final nun – an extended vav descending below the line The “unbounded servant.”

Hebrew Word Spelling: Nun-Vav-Nun Sofit


Samekh: A circle; a wedding ring.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Samekh-Mem/Kaf Sofit


Ayin: An elongated nun with an enwedged Vav or Zayin.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Ayin-Yod-Nun Sofit

Pey: A mouth containing a tooth. The white space within the Pey forms a hidden bet.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Pey-Aleph

Tsade: A yod enwedged in the upper right side of a bent-over nun. The yod faces either upwards or downwards, according to two varied traditions.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Tsade-Dalet-Yod

 

Qof: Resh above with a Zayin descending below the line on the left.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Qof-Vav-Pey/Fey Sofit

Resh: The profile of a head; a bent over head

Hebrew Word Spelling: Resh-Yod-Shin

Shin: Three vavs, each with a yod on top, rise from a common base-point. Symbol of symmetry; Form of a flame.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Shin-Yod-Nun Sofit

 

Tav: A dalet joined to a nun. A stamp or seal.

Hebrew Word Spelling: Tav-Yod-Vav



NOTICE WHERE YOU ARE AND WHERE YOU ARE GOING

Hello! It has been a journey and I can hardly believe that we are here together right now. I just want to say that I am pleased and blessed to know that you come this far and that we have arrived here together. I don't know how fast you are accomplishing your tasks, but I am quite sure that this has been a struggle as it was (and continues to be) for me. God says to "ask" “seek” and “knock” for a reason. Don't think that any of this comes easy for anyone (past or present time), but know that it is ALL about seeking “God”, not his gifts. Wisdom is for everyone, bread is for his children!

1. While this is a debated topic (see GoogleBooks: many good books on the topic for hundreds of years), it took having a look at the complexity of Hebrew for myself to see this truth as it is indeed fact. This view is well written out in ancient Jewish literature and has always been Jewish thought as well as teaching. Even the most ancient stories passed down include slight references to letters of the aleph-bet that in description match to Hebrew shapes in the letters themselves.

Hebrew is the only language in comparison to others that can testify to creation seeing it clearly being a sort of mathematical and periodic table. As far as letters and characters, think of scribal dust and the teaching of writing in sand for scribes and teachers. Messiah also did this.

Now think of Shinar (later called Babel). Some people journeyed to a plain in Shinar (Genesis 11), but not all as seen in chapter 10. God confounded language at this plain (now called Babel for this reason), he did not confound the original language of those that were not there and did not take part in the disobedience in Shinar, which were the ones that we now scattered abroad.
