The English - Hebrew Connection


In this slide show Jethro Black connects around 200 Hebrew and English words together using Gematria. Since making this slide show Jethro has discovered probably in the region of another 300 such connections. 


When searching for the rootsof English words one looks at the phonetics and traces the word back to earlier sources. For example, the English word to Babble is linked to the Hebrew word Bavel as in the Tower of Babel or Migdol Bavel in Hebrew. At this event God mixes up the languages of man so they no longer speak in ne tongue but in man. Hence, the use of the word "to babble on".


But some English words seem to have no etymological root in Hebrew. For example Secret is very different to its Hebrew Sod but using Gematria with the Placement Values (PV) where A = 1, B = 2...Z= 26 then


SECRET = 19 + 5 + 3 + 18 + 5 + 20 = 70 (PV)


And then using the Hebrew Normal Values where א = 1, ב = 2...י = 10.... ק = 100, ר = 200....ת = 400 then


סוד = 60 + 6 + 4 = 70 (NV)


This is so with many words. Words that have no apparent etymological link between English and Hebrew often have a Gematria link.
