It says “belonging to Yahweh”
Due to the fact that ankles are round, you can only see part of it :\ sorry guys
this better be only sharpie, you culture stealing son of a bitch
They didn’t pronounce it how you pronounce it before 1900.
what even is your point
Hebrew was reappropriated by Jewish academics in the 1900s and have no more claim over it than the Christians whose religion grew out of the same texts written in the same language.
What? You’re saying there was no cultural production in Hebrew throughout the history of the diaspora?
You still haven’t addressed my points about it being used for prayer, which goyim do not share. Christianity most certainly did NOT grow out of the Hebrew Bible, because it was quickly translated into Greek; no books in the NT were written in Hebrew, while later Jewish holy texts were.
You are ignorant on this matter. Stop talking. I can almost guarantee that I have put more time and study into this than you.
Also tumblr is working really poorly for me right now.
And European philosophers were writing in Latin well after that language had died out in everyday use. Just because Rabbis still wrote in Hebrew (even if they pronounced it with Yiddish, Ladino, etc. dialects) doesn’t mean that it was any more our culture than Latin was in early modern Europe.
WHY DO YOU THINK THEY WERE WRITING IN HEBREW
THROUGHOUT THE DIASPORA
Same reason that they were writing in Latin after the Roman empire. It was the code of the elite.
That doesn’t …. mean anything.It also contradicts your (obviously false) statement that “The Jews stopped speaking and writing in Hebrew long before Christianity.” Ketubbot, marriage contracts, have been written in Hebrew and Aramaic since forever; so have prayers (you still have not addressed this. Do you think other people pray in Hebrew…?); poetry has been written in Hebrew since forever.
Like. I can’t believe I have to defend Hebrew as a uniquely Jewish language.
