Adam's Lineage in the Book of Genesis
The original pronunciations and sometimes even spellings of the names of peoples in the history including the Bible have been a problem. Over time we have transliterated the meanings by the pronunciations resulting in spelling changes. The definition of "transliterated" is " write or print (a letter or word) using the closest corresponding letters of a different alphabet or language." Given time, we have often lost the original meaning and can only speculate the meaning. Fortunately with Hebrew, albeit some of the letters have changed, the letters carry meanings unlike any other language in the earth. A close comparison, which is not the same, is the Chinese Mandarin (along with dialects) that have pictographic letters.
In Genesis 5, the lineage of Adam is given:
|Scripture Reference||Lineage||Hebrew||Years lived||General Meaning(s)||Generality Word|
|930||"Man". Small possibilities "Acre Man", "Red Man", "Blood Man", "Soul Man" or "Living Creature"||Man|
|912||Gen 4:25 "appointed me another offspring". Very small possibility it means "Buttocks" or "Tumult"||Appointed|
|905||"Mortal", "Frail" and/or "Miserable"||Mortal|
|910||To Lament or "Lamenter". "Sorrow", "dirge" or "Elegy"||Sorrow|
