This project is enormous, and the present work is only preliminary:
it charts a direction for language study following the traditions
of kabbalah via return to the original Torah Hebrew. It is in
no way definitive, yet it points to ultimate understandings.
So far as Biblical Hebrew is concerned, Jewish etymology is
remarkably faithful to the glosses that spring from parsing the
Sinatic hieroglyphs known as Ancient Hebrew. Ketav Levonah--
The Letters of Light-- comprise the lively oracles of Elohim.
Anchored in what has been received and transmitted from generation
to generation-- grounded in the stories we all know-- we are
free to stand with the priests in holy places, lending our ears
to the voices of the written word as the letters are stirred
by the Spirit in our minds.
These pages are indexed with both individual word indexes
and Strong's number indexes for each letter of the alefbet, and
all entries are cross-referenced with hypertext links. These
pages present sandard Aramaic definitions, notaricon definitions,
and temurah for each word form, as well as gematria and numerology
To give an example of the usefulness of the approach taken
in this study, what follows is the notaricon for bwza,
the word-form translated in the King James Versuib as "hyssop."
Whether Torah's hyssop is the same plant as the species bearing
that name in this present day is a matter of conjecture. Even
should we identify the right plant, however, we would gain little
insight about what Torah is telling us concerning its use in
the offerings. The notaricon definition, however, greatly enriches
our understanding of the various texts: "hyssop" is
growth/a with roots/z
fixed/w withn the house/b;
concepts/a that penetrate/z during evaluation/w
of consciousness/b; focused/a preparation/z
to offer/pray/w with receptivity/b. These were the first parsings that
came to mind. What was once open only to the mysticis, by means
of this approach, opened to common-sense undertanding and utilization
The seals to the Book were broken while few were looking.
The Lively Oracles of Elohim are, again, on the loose. This is
HaShem's doing, and it is wondrous in our sight.
The Alefbet Index will
allow you to surf the Torah dictionary by the Hebrew word forms
or by their corresponding Strong's Index numbers, which are included
with the word forms listed in the indexes of the alefbet letters.
This gateway to the Alphanumerics
partition facilitates surfing of word forms that share common
numerical values. Links to number ranges are provided at the
bottom of the page. You may prefer to go directly to the Number Indexes, as the
links to other number ranges follow the index of this first range
of numbers, from 3 to 300.
