The TaNaKh (commonly called the Old Testament) was written in the Hebrew language. Here are some important Hebrew words found in the Scriptures. Each word is transliterated into English and defined. I also added some Bible passages where each Hebrew word can be found. I will also include reference notes for Strong’s Hebrew Concordance numbers.

Below is a list of the Hebrew Alphabet letters, followed by words that use that particular letter as the first one in the word. (This mostly empty list will be updated as time allows).

Aleph

(Note: The Aleph is a silent letter, it is never pronounced. This is why each transliterated word below on the Aleph list start with a different letter.)

Elohim = God, gods(spirits).

Elohim is a word that refers to spirits. In the Bible, there is only one Elohim (God), but there are also other Elohim (gods/spirits) at work in our world and in our lives. Elohim is used in Psalm 82:1 when it says “Elohim (God) has taken his place in the divine council, in the midst of the elohim (gods/spirits) he holds judgment.”

(Elohim is number H430 in Strong’s Concordance).

Cho-sek = darkness.

Chosek is the kind of darkness you would find if you went deep underground in a cave and turned off all the lights. Chosek is used in Isaiah 9:2 when it says “The people who walked in CHOSEK have seen a great light.”

(Chosek is number H2822 in Strong’s Concordance).
