Hebrew Roots of English Words???
There is a possible connection between the English and Hebrew languages.

Of course, English seems to be an amalgamation of a few different languages: Anglo-Saxon, Latin, Danish (Danes invaded Britain in the 8th century A.D.), French (1099 Norman Conquest), and perhaps more. Later, during the Renaissance, numerous Latin and Greek derived words were added. I believe this blending of different tongues is one of the major reasons for all the unusual difficulties presented by English. It is actually the most difficult language in the world for most non-European foreigners to learn (correctly anyway).

One thing I find very interesting is the evidence for the possibility that many English words have been derived from Hebrew. Here's a few examples (defintions from the Hebrew dictionary of the Strong's Concordance – The Strongest Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible, James Strong, Ed. John R. Kohlenberger and James A. Swanson, Zondervan Grand Rapids, MI, 2001). The numbers are those they are listed under in the dictionary).

1419 gadol, a. great, large; much, more; this can refer to physical size, quantity, degree and social status (great king, high priest)

5869 'ayin - eye; by extension: sight; spring, fountain

8242 saq - sackcloth; sack

7919 sakal, v. to have success; to cross (the hands and arms in an extended motion); to have insight wisdom, understanding; to prosper, be successful; the potent capacity to understand and so exercise skill in life, a state caused by proper training and teaching, enhanced by careful observation

6292 piggul, n.m. (ceremonially) unclean meat, kept too long after a sacrifice

6963 qol - sound, voice, noise; lightness (i.e., frivolity or light-heartedness)

The following I took from the online Strong’s Concordance Strong's Concordance with Hebrew and Greek Lexicon

3206 yeled yeh'-led from 3205; something born, i.e. a lad or offspring:--boy, child, fruit, son, young man (one).

3682 kcuwth kes-ooth' from 3680; a cover (garment); figuratively, a veiling:--covering, raiment, vesture. (In my Strong’s, the entry reads “kesut” for the English pronunciation.)

1588 gan gan from 1598; a garden (as fenced):--garden.
1598 ganan gaw-nan' a primitive root; to hedge about, i.e. (generally) protect:--defend.
5731 `Eden ay'-den the same as 5730 (masculine); Eden, the region of Adam's home:--Eden.

In Hebrew the Garden of Eden would be pronounced, “gahn ‘Aden”. There is no word for “of”. Placing one noun in front of another implies possession.

Here's links to an Ancient Hebrew language resource site which argues for the Ancient Hebrew origin of the 'Latin' alphabet (the modern Hebrew characters are actually Aramaic or Syrian).

The Hebrew Origin of the English (Latin, Phoenician) Alphabet - [link to www.ancient-hebrew.org]

Edenics: Hebrew roots found in English words - [link to www.ancient-hebrew.org]

Hebrew in Welsh? - [link to britam.org]

Here's a couple more links which show that Hebrew was potentially the mother of the phonetic alphabets (although most scholars claim that Phoenicians developed the first phonetic alphabet - hence the name).

Ancient Scripts: Aramaic - [link to www.ancientscripts.com]
Aramaic/Proto-Hebrew alphabet - [link to www.omniglot.com]

An important thing to consider here is that ancient Phoenicia (based in the coastal cities of Tyre and Sidon) was just north of Israel in what is what is now Lebanon.

And here's some webpages that show similarities between the Celtic and Hebrew languages.

Because the English, like all other Caucasians, are the actual descendants of the Israelites of the dispersion.

The j.e.w.s. are not.

The circumference of the eARTh north to south through the poles is 24,859.82 miles

Rounded to nearest Whole number 24,860

24860th vs. Mar 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there was darkness over the Whole EARTH until the ninth hour.

ge {ghay} Is translated as EartH 188 times in the KJV

The diameter of the moon is 2160 miles

2160th vs. Exd 23:15
Thou shalt keep the feast of unleavened bread: (thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the new moon Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before Me empty:)

The Hebrew Word for Month is chodesh, this word was translated in other occurrences in the KJV as New Moon 20x, here it was translated as Month..but says the same either way, Hebraic. [link to www.blueletterbible.org]

The moon cycle determines the months of the biblical calendar Ex 12:2...Passover begins at evening the start of the 14th day, calculated from the new moon which began the month of Abib, the 1st month - unleavened bread begins on the 15th at the sunset of the 24860th vs. Our Passover
