I teach Hebrew on Steemit and do lessons that cover the letters, meanings, and pronunciation here on the bittubers platform.
Welcome to my Hebrew reading & language series.
Genesis 13 is reading like a story now. We see the travels of Abram through Beyt El (house of God) and what would be Sodom. He was much richer after receiving so much wealth from Pharaoh in last week's reading.
They had so much in herds, silver and gold, that they began to argue about land for their animals.
Kesef is the word for silver (left).
And zahav is how you say gold (right).
Today we use paper. If you dug up paper from ancient Egypt or Isral, how much would it be worth? I venture a guess that any gold you unearth would still buy something today.
The readings are getting longer and I am speeding it up a bit. You should still be able to follow along though. Please have a look and repeat the words after I point and read. See if you can do it.
If you are just starting, my lessons are all here starting at Alef, adding vowels (the dots and lines) as we go. I explain the meaning of each letter and its numerical value. Just go to my blog and scroll to the bottom or click here
