Shin – Genesis 3 & 4

seth shin

I’ve added words from Genesis 3 with the letter “shin”

I was looking at the word for Egypt in Paleo Hebrew and I discovered that the second son of Ham was named Mizraim.

It turns out the Mizraim is the word for Egypt in Hebrew:

Here is Egypt broken down into individual letters and root words:

I’ve added the words with the letter “shin” from Genesis 4:

These two words are very similar.

They both have the Ayin character as well which means Eye. Two more similar words in Genesis 4:

They both have Aleph which is the Alpha / the word of God. More words related to seven:

All words have the Ayin character and all words start with Shin and Beth which are related to Rest and Dwelling.

And rested is pronounced like the name for the holy day (Sabbath in English / Shabat in Hebrew). The word for Seth and the word for appointed are the same word (ie. Seth means Appointed).

And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son, and he called his name Seth. And Adam glorified the name of God, for he said, God has appointed me another seed instead of Abel whom Cain slew. And God revealed himself unto Seth, and he rebelled not, but offered an acceptable sacrifice like unto his brother Abel. 

Genesis 3:14
