The genealogy in Genesis and the salvation

 

The genealogy in Genesis and the salvation

What language was spoken before the Tower of Babel?

When we read Genesis, we see that the whole human race spoke the same language. From Adam and Eve until Noah’s disembark, that language was spoken (Genesis 11:1)

Was that language extinguished and there is no trace of it? Or was it mixed and finally lost after the Tower of Babel? Through research in the Bible, evidence has been found that allows identifying what language was spoken: the names present in the biblical genealogy are names that have a meaning… in Hebrew.

Adam: from Adama (ground, earth, red mud) Adam means man.

Cain: comes from the verbal root Cana (acquire, gain, get) Genesis 4:1 “I have acquired a man”.

Abel: Hevel: from Havo (breath out) It’s something in vain, a waste, vanity, maybe because they missed Paradise.

Seth: Sheit, from Shetat (put, set, place, appoint) because he was “set” in place of Abel.

Anosh: from Anash. Means to be sick, ill or incurable.Sickness.

Cainan: Cana, from the same root as Cain, (acquire, gain, obtain)

Mahalalel: Ma-Halal-El: from Halelu (praise) and El (God) Means “Praised God

Jared: Iered, from Ierad (descend, go down) This root is used to name the Jordan river because it descends.

Enoch: Chanoch, he walked with God. From Chanach (dedicate, consecrate, initiate, train, teach) Root of Chanukka.

Methuselah: Matushalach, from Meit (death or to die) U (and) Shalach (send) Means “death and send

Lamech: Lemech, from Le (to) and Mach (hit, strike, wound)

Noah: Noach, Means rest, comfort. Genesis 5:29 “This one will comfort us concerning the work of our hands”

When was the Tower of Babel built?

It was built five generations after Noah, in Peleg’s days (Genesis 10:25) These are the names mentioned in the Bible from Noah’s sons until Peleg:

  • Shem: Shem (name) Son of Noah. “Famous”
  • Japheth: Iafed, from Iafá (handsome) Son of Noah
  • Ham: Cham (hot, warm, dark, brown) Son of Noah
  • Arphaxad: Contraction of words, there is no consensus
  • Salah: Shalach (send)
  • Eber: Eber, from Abar (to cross over, pass over, go beyond, go to the other side) He is the father of the Hebrews (from Eber), who speak Hebrew.

Peleg and the Tower of Babel

His name comes from Palag (to be divided) and from Pelga (division of a family or clan; river, brook or stream)

Genesis 10:25 “To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg (division), for in his days the earth was divided”. The earth was divided into clans. Eber’s sons (the Hebrews) continued speaking the language that their father spoke before the construction of the tower, who spoke the language spoken by his fathers, back to Adam.

Is Hebrew the original language?

Eber named his son “Peleg” using the same language that his fathers used to name their sons; every name that we have reviewed until now has a meaning in Hebrew.

Eber called his son “division in clans”, because “in his days” the earth was divided. We understand from this that the confusion of the languages happened around Peleg’s birth.

Eber continued speaking the same language that his fathers, and from his name (Eber) comes the word “Hebrew”.

The genealogy and the Creator’s message

Each name of the genealogy that we just studied has a meaning in Hebrew. For that reason, the original language must have been Hebrew.

If this doesn’t seem proof enough, God left us a hidden message in the name of the men mentioned in the Bible, from Adam to Noah.

Let’s see them again

In summary

  • Adam: Man
  • Cain: Acquire
  • Abel: Vanity
  • Seth: Set
  • Enosh: Sickness
  • Mahalalel: Praised God
  • Jared: Descend
  • Enoch: Consecrate
  • Methuselah: Death and send
  • Lamech: Wound, Hit
  • Noah: Rest

When we place these names side by side in chronological order, we see the encrypted message of the Creator.

Genesis 3:14-15

So the Lord God said to the serpent: Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; On your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.

The hidden message in the biblical genealogy

Man (Adam) has obtained futility, acquire vanity, purchase waste (Cain and Abel) and has been set in sickness, in appointed illness, stock in mortality (Seth and Enosh) but the Praised God (Mahalalel) will descend (Jared) to rededicate, to train men and to teach (Enoch) that through His death, He will send (Methuselah) to the struck and wounded (Lamech) comfort and rest (Noah)

Salvation encrypted from Genesis

The hidden message in the biblical genealogy

As mankind, we are incurably ill. Death is close to each one of us, and there is no hope for men. For this reason, God Himself became flesh and died for us, to rededicate men, to rededicate His creation; to set us free from death; to draw people close to Him, to train them in the concept of discipleship, so they keep His commandments, and go to the nations and tell the world that through His death, all of us have salvation and hope in Him: all those wounded and downhearted will have comfort and rest, if they accept His sacrifice and live according to His precepts.

This (Jesus) is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:11-12)

The Creator leaves us an encrypted message in His Word, in Genesis, whose name means in Hebrew “In the beginning”.

Each Hebrew name has a meaning. God’s plan is masterfully revealed in the names of the first ten generations, from Adam (meaning “man”) to Noah (meaning “comfort”).

 

These are the names of the first ten generations, from Adam to Noah, not including Cain nor Abel.
