Why Learn Hebrew?

October 26, 2011 at 9:01 am 1 comment

When you go to a foreign land and learn the language, it is a high complement to the natives. We have been to Germany several times and tried to learn Deutsch (German), we knew the attitude of the natives did a 180 when we even attempted to speak the native tongue. When a foreigner comes here and learns English, I have more respect for his words.

The Father’s native tongue is Hebrew. When we learn Hebrew and speak it back to Him, we are giving Him reason to listen to our prayers with more respect. James 5:16 Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working. (ASV)

I like this translation too

James 5:16 So admit your sins to each other, and pray for each other so that you will be healed. Prayers offered by those who have God’s approval are effective. (GW)

Being righteous means you have G-d’s approval. It is Greek Word: δίκαιος
Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary. from (dike); equitable (in character or act); by implication innocent, holy (absolute or relative) :- just, meet, right (-eous).
Strong’s Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

James 5:16 (KJV)
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

Could it be that obtaining God’s approval includes learning Hebrew. I am not suggesting that it is mandatory. But like they say “…it couldn’t hurt.” (grin).

learn the Aleph Bet … then the vowels … and check out this book http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=chozesblog-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=0939144328&ref=qf_sp_asin_til&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

    Martin, would you say that, for those of us who don’t know Hebrew or Greek, that to own such a work as “The Interlinear Bible – Hebrew-Greek-English” by Jay P. Green, Sr. is good? It has Strong’s Concordance nbmeurs above each word as well.
