The Old Testament

was written in Hebrew.

Obviously those who read Hebrew

are going to glean more insights into the Old Testament

than those who do not read Hebrew.

Learning even a little knowledge

of Hebrew

brings out "hidden richness" in the Scriptures.

This page is presented to help you

glean some of the hidden richness.



The Hebrew language is written from right to left.

So if I wrote the word "Genesis" from right to left

with English letters,

it would look like this:


There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet.

עִבְד֣וּ אֶת־יְהוָ֣ה בְּשִׂמְחָ֑ה  

eev-DOO et Adonai b-seem-KHA
Worship/serve/work for the Lord with joy! Psalms 100:2

In this verse, the word for work "eev-DOO" עִבְד֣וּ  is also the word for serve and worship! Whatever we do for the LORD, as we serve HIM and others, as we work for HIM and worship HIM, He asks us to do it with JOY! "seem-KHA" שִׂמְחָ֑ה.  

Hebrew Grammar

On the September 6, 2014 entry on my blog,

I gave a short Hebrew grammar lesson.

It is written for you below:

Knowing a little Hebrew increases our understanding and enjoyment of the study of God.

There are three ways in Hebrew to say that someone is THE BEST.

If you want to say that someone is the best carpenter, you could say it three ways:

  1. He is a carpenter of carpenters.
  2. He is The Carpenter.
  3. He is a Great, Great, Great carpenter.

In the first instance, you use the word "of."

For example, we say Jesus is:

The King of Kings - That means he is the highest King.

The second instance, you use the word "the."

Jesus is The Savior - That means Jesus is the highest Savior.

The third instance, you say a word three times:

The Lord is Holy, Holy, Holy - That means the Lord is the most holy.

Psalm 27

Below is Psalm 27

sung in Hebrew.


The Hebrew words are written in


Then underneath the Hebrew words are words that are

transliterated words

(that means using English letters for Jewish sounds so you can sound out the Hebrew words so you can sing along)

and then finally the words are written in

tradition English

so you can understand what is being sung.

Take Note:

Many Jewish people,

 - even those who have received Jesus as their Savior - 

still continue the Jewish tradition of honoring

God by writing the name of God without vowels.

For example:

G-d or L-RD
