Welcome to The Hebrew Language download section. Most of the Bible was written in Hebrew. The Lord sovereignly chose this peculiar language as an instrument in preserving His holy Oracles. Learning the alphabet and how to read and write it is a great stepping stone in the pursuit of this beautiful language. The Bible is full of rich symbolism, parallelisms, and allegories that can only be fully understood in the light of the Hebrew language and culture. BARUCH HABA BASHEM YAHWEH!

Ps 137:5-6
If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget its skill! If I do not remember you, let my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth-- if I do not exalt Jerusalem above my chief joy.

THE LORD'S PRAYER IN HEBREW. Hebrew is written, and read, from right to left. In ancient times inscriptions were engraved on stone tablets (as with the Ten Commandments and the Moabite stone). The reason might be because they held the hammer in the right hand and the chisel in the left and chiseled from right to left. There may be other explanations, but this one seems very probable.
