Hebrew Alphabet Tools

Feb 16, 2007

Each Hebrew letter represents a sound by which words are spoken. But each letter is also used as a number and a word (picture). And so when I speak of numeric values (gematria) of a particular letter or word, the value of the word is determined by adding up the value of each letter in the word.

Knowing these simple things can be a valuable addition to your array of tools that you have to understand the Bible. So I am listing the Hebrew alphabet (below), along with its numeric value and its word meaning. You may want to keep this in your Bible or Concordance so that you can do your own word studies. This will also help you when I give you some specific word studies.

alef (1), an ox, symbolizing strength, or as the first letter, the top, highest, greatest

beth (2), a house or household, family

gimel (3), a camel, representing being lifted up (often pride)
