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
brings out "hidden richness" in the Scriptures.
This page is presented to help you
glean some of the hidden richness.

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.
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:
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.
Below is Psalm 27
sung in Hebrew.
The Hebrew words are written in
Then underneath the Hebrew words are words that are
(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
so you can understand what is being sung.
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.
