The ancient language of ivrit ( עברית ) Genesis 1 - Part 7
Welcome back to my DTube Hebrew reading & language series.
The full study is now on line covering the Alef-Beyt here in my blog. This is a beginners program to teach letters, vowels, and reading. The vowels are marked in this bible and are designed to help avoid confusion on what a word is and how it is pronounced. The confusion is obvious in the hundreds of interpretations globally. In modern Hebrew, only children need a niqqud or vowel marking for each letter. Old manuscripts also usually have vowels marked.
This week's reading is from Genesis 1:13 onward.
Talking about light, night, and the reasons for which each was created.
- Appointed times that we are to, set apart, remember, be with Him.
The last two everyone knows about. The first two have been twisted.
Signs; Warnings and great events that we should see coming. For example: The star of Bethlehem which was like a street sign warning of a cliff or upcoming rest stop. These tell of good things to come and bad things to come. The star over the house of bread, or Beyt Lekhem, announced the birth of the bread of life, otherwise known as the Mashiach (Messiah) - a word which simply means "anointed one."
Appointed times; I like to call them appointments with God himself. Some are to be celebrated, and others are to remember something significant that the Almighty has done. Example(s): Shabuote/Pentecost which occur on the same day. YHVH gave the Torah (the instruction manual of life) on that day. Tousands of years later, He gave the Counselor who leads us to all understanding. Yes, the eleven disciples knew that the Ruah (Spirit) came upon them on Shabuote. They were at the temple for that particular appointed time.
Interesting that Alef-tov reads "ote" which is the word for "letter" or "sign". Number 1 above is the plural of that feminine word "Ote-Ote" or "signs". Feminine plurals end in "tav" and masculine plurals end in "mem"
What's more. There were no Jews (sons of Judah) when the Holidays (Holy Days) to God were ordained.

I prefer to sit next to the scroll of His loving instructions on shabbat
