Learn to Read Biblical HebrewIntroductionWhy Learn Hebrew?A translation of the Biblical text is a translator's"interpretation" of the text. The translator's beliefs willoften influence how the text will be translated and anyoneusing his translation is seeing it through his eyes ratherthan the original authors. Only by studying the originallanguage of the Bible can one see the text in its originalstate.Learning the Hebrew language can be both fun andexciting. By simply studying the pages that follow, for justa few minutes a day, you will soon be reading Hebrew,build a Hebrew vocabulary and even begin translatingBiblical passages for your self.About HebrewThe English word "alphabet" is derived from the first twoletters of the Greek Alphabet--Alpha and Beta. Hebrew onthe other hand, uses the word "alephbet," the first twoletters of the Hebrew alephbet--aleph and bet. The Hebrew7

Learn to Read Biblical Hebrewalephbet consists of 22 consonants. The vowels (callednikkudot, nikkud in the singular) are dots and dashesadded above and below the consonants. One advantage toHebrew is that the sound for each letter remainsconsistent, unlike English where one has to memorizemany variations. For instance, the word circus contains theletter "c" twice, the first time it is pronounced like an "S"while the second time it is pronounced like a "K." InHebrew, the letter K is always pronounced as a "K."Unlike English, which is read from left to right, Hebrew isread from right to left just as many other Semiticlanguages do including Aramaic and Arabic. This maysound difficult at first but in a very short time you will getused to it.When sounding out a word, it will be easier if youremember the Consonant (C) and Vowel (V) patterns ofHebrew words. In English, the consonants and vowelsmay be arranged in any order, such as in the word "circle"which has a C V C C C V pattern. Hebrew on theother hand, is very consistent, and each word will usuallyfollows a C V C V C. pattern. The Hebrew word %,l,m(melek - king) contains the pattern C V C V C, Ak,l,m(meleko – his king) is C V C V C V and %,l,m'h(hamelek – the king) is C V C V C V C.The pronunciations of some of the consonants and vowelshave changed over the centuries but this does not affectthe meaning of words as the letters of the words define it,and not the sounds. We will learn to pronounce themaccording to the Modern Hebrew pronunciation. ModernHebrew pronunciation is also divided into two parts,Ashkenazi and Sephardic. Since Sephardic is the8

Learn to Read Biblical Hebrewpronunciation adopted by the Modern State of Israel, wewill use this pronunciation.About this BookWhen I began to study the Hebrew language I used severaldifferent resources but found that they were not compiledin a format for beginning Hebrew students. I began toarrange charts and lists with the necessary information as aready resource for learning and reading the Hebrew Bible.This book is the result. Included in this book are lessonsfor learning the alephbet, verbs, nouns, adjectives andsentence structure.If at any time you have questions about the AncientHebrew Research Center, this book, its content or thelessons, please feel free to E-mail your questions orcomments to us through our web site;http://www.ancient-hebrew.orgAdditional ResourcesIt should be kept in mind that this book is not meant to beused for in-depth Biblical study, but as a reference guidefor Biblical reading practice, vocabulary building andsentence comprehension. More specific dictionaries andlexicons will be necessary for more in-depth study.9

Learn to Read Biblical HebrewThrough the process of Hebraic studies, you will want todig deeper into the meaning of specific words and phrases.At this point the purchase of a Hebrew Bible and aHebrew Lexicon will be helpful. There are several differentkinds of Hebrew Bibles. The standard Hebrew Bible willbe a Bible written only in Hebrew. The Interlinear Biblewill have the Hebrew on one line and the Englishtranslation for each word under each Hebrew word. AParallel Bible will have the Hebrew text on one page andthe English translation on the otherThere are several different Lexicons but be sure that theone you purchase includes all the words of the Bible withthe prefixes and suffixes attached. This will allow you tolook up a word even if you do not know the root. Irecommend Benjamin Davidson's Hebrew and ChaldeeLexicon of the Bible.10

Learn to Read Biblical HebrewPart 1The AlephbetEach of following eleven lessons introduces two newconsonants and may or many not introduce new vowels.Each lesson will also include a practice section, newvocabulary words and sentences. The practice session willallow you to practice the new letters and vowels andrefresh yourself on old ones. The vocabulary section willconsist of a few words using the new letters and vowels tobegin building your Hebrew vocabulary. The Sentenceswill allow you to begin using your new words insentences.To assist you in learning the letters and words, Irecommend that you put the letters and words you arelearning on flashcards so that you can study them at anytime.Transliterations of each of the lessons are provided at theend of the lessons to assist with pronunciation. Whenreading these transliterations, remember to use the correctHebrew sound for each vowel. For example thetransliterated Hebrew vowel sound "o" is the long "o"sound as in the English word "rope."11

Since Hebrewrequires a vowel after each consonant, the vowel is the "cholam" andis placed above the letter "shin" in the same place as the dot abovethe right leg of the shin. The dot in this case serves two purposes.The Hebrew word t,a is occasionally used in the text to mean"with" but is more frequently used (about 7,000 times) as a markerfor the direct object of the verb and is untranslatable into English.For example, in the sentence; "I made the dinner"; the phrase "thedinner" is the direct object and would be preceded by the word t,a. Ifthe sentence were; "I made a dinner," t,a would not precede it since"dinner" in this sentence is not a direct object.16The word hrAt, while often translated as "law," actually means"teaching" and is also the Hebrew name for the first five books of theBible as they contain the "teachings" of God.1718An exception to the rule requiring the C V C V pattern is theword tyivaer. The aleph does not always require a vowel after it.28
