Hebrew Names

This listing just gives a glimpse into the study done on Names of God from a Judaic view, which may at first be noticed because of the majority Old Testament references.  The Hebrew names have fascinated me for many years, so much so that a few prints hang here and there reminding me of them.  This is NOT a complete or exhaustive list of them, which even for this Series had to be cut off to complete the Series – but will continue in my personal study time…

The Challenge of Finding Names

Here comes a point where I hope NOT to lose folks – most of these names cannot be found in the King James Version of the Bible.  For a very simple reason, the translation from Hebrew, Aramaic to English had no equivalents.  This table is also NOT complete.

People forget there are translations before the 1611 King James Authorized Version, which by the way most most Bible Thumping KJV 1611’ers have NEVER seen and couldn’t read aloud unless they had a copy of the second printing – for there are TWO (2) 1611’s and then there is a 1613.  I am very fortunate to have both 1611’s for comparison.

Bishops (1568), Geneva (1587), Wycliffe (1384), Gutenberg (1455), Tyndale (1525), Matthews (1537) and Coverdale (1535) translations were used in comparison and reference in creating what we know as the KJV today by the 54 men who served on the Translation Council. It is widely held that the KJV is a close re-translation of the Bishops and Tyndale works.

In this chart, one will find that the Darby (1889) translation is where majority of the “exact” words were found to select reference points for passage identification.  The References with “–” in front of them were actually found in the Tanach (Hebrew Old Testament)

Many hours of research, reading and discovery were spent on this one Series to gain a better understanding of what didn’t have a direct translation from the original writings and our Bibles of today contain.
