111. Paired Sets in the Hebrew Alphabet [Journals] [Aeon]
... satyrs. Another Hebrew word for "devil, demon" is sed (similar in sound and meaning to Egyptian Set, Seth, or Sutekh, the god of storms and violence, identified with horse-like and pig-like animals, brother and murderer of Osiris and rival of Horus, equated by the Greeks with their Typhon), which may be etymologically related to Hebrew saday, "mighty, powerful, almighty, the Almighty." More direct evidence of a relationship between the letters teth and tsadhe involves the near homophony in Hebrew between tsadhe (or sadhe), the letter name, and sadhe, "field, open or cultivated field, country, territory," spelled with ...
112. Indra's Theft of the Sun-God's Wheel [Journals] [Aeon]
... hitherto unrecognized. Support for this hypothesis, perhaps, stems from the apparent relationship between the words vel and Velli, the latter being the name of a leading Tamil goddess, frequently linked to Murukan. (163) The name Velli, however, is elsewhere applied to the planet Venus. (164) Indeed, with regard to the etymology of the words vel and Velli, it appears likely that here there has been an alteration of the consonant n to l. That these two consonants are frequently substituted for each other is well-known. Witness the following example of this phenomenon within the Tamil language itself, where Tamil ven, "to desire, love," has been ...
113. The Genie Of The Pivot [Journals] [Kronos]
... has meanings which include the sharp edge of a sword or weapon, Mars, and Saturn.(21) The same is implicit also from ara, a knife, probe, instrument of iron, since the related Ara means Mars or Saturn.(22) Saturn is thus obliquely linked to the image of a knife or sword both etymologically and otherwise. Shiva's corresponding link is expressed by Khadgin, armed with a sword, an epithet of Shiva.(23) The shared meanings of Akshara include a sword or Shiva.(24) Akshara is arguably from akshah, among other things an axis, pole, or pivot,(25) and -rah, fire. ...
114. Notes (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... Genesis. Lacking mates they descended upon another tribe, who called themselves `men', and took away their fittest women. Myths of this kind are found in many parts of the world. Note 27. The word kerubh is generally supposed to be a Hebraized form of Akkadian karubu, an intercessor. This is probably due to popular etymology, and suggested by the office attributed to the cherubim by late Jewish theologians endeavouring to `sublimate' originally `crude' traits in Mosaism. In consideration of their original uncouth mythological form and violent behaviour and in the light of Hoerbiger's cosmological theory, a derivation of the operative main-syllable from Akkadian karahu, be cold, is much more ...
115. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... , and Jesus As previously stated, the name of Rome was once Saturnia; and Hislop also equated Saturn with Latinus, to whom the Romans or Latin race traced their lineage. (124) Of even greater significance is Hislop's identification of Saturn with Janus. (125) The latter divinity was essentially and uniquely a Roman god. The etymology of the name is uncertain though one hypothesis suggests "a form Jana, sometimes employed for Diana, of which the root dius or dium evokes the idea of the luminous sky." (126) Janus was represented with two faces. Janus was also the god of "beginnings". As a solar [sic] god he ...
116. Jupiter -- God of Abraham (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Law-giving, introduced the god Yahweh to the survivors of the Exodus from Egypt. "The theophany of Sinai then represents the end of the domination of the Shaddai concept and the beginning of the rule of Yahweh."(44) Who was this god, Shaddai, first introduced by Abram? Many have been the scholarly treatises and etymological hair splittings written and debated in an effort to finalize the exact meaning of the name.(45) In 1886 Friedrich Delitzsch connected the name with the Akkadian "sadû," meaning "mountain".(46) Although Delitzsch believed that the idea of the mountain implied an appellation meaning "high" and that Shaddai could be ...
117. The Levites and the Revolts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... culture. The most important larger group were traditionally loyal Elohists. Few could have been Yahwist, inasmuch as Moses was only then expounding the new cult. In what would have been Goshen, at Tell ed-Dab'a, a town of the Middle Bronze Age has recently been excavated. It reveals a heavy non-Egyptian, Palestinian aspect. Skeletal remains, etymology, and artifacts disclose a heterogeneous population of Semitic and other backgrounds [1 ]. This would support our theory that the proto-Israelites were a geographically separate and autonomous people, to some degree maintaining their old ethnic identity, living among Egyptians and other peoples from East and West, intermarrying, holding a full range of occupations, but now ...

120. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... Its very simplicity was unfathomable to later theorists. The knowledge of astronomy and the perfection which this science attained in ancient times seems beyond modern comprehension. Near the city of Benares, in India, there are astronomical instruments cut out of the solid rock of a mountain. In former times these were used for making observations. Semitic origins show etymologically their Kamitic derivation. The "K " of Kam was transformed into the "5 " of Sam, which was the root of the word Semite. The Semites were known later as the Sumarians. The Sumarians followed the Kamites when the race of Kam left its primitive or nomadic habitat. The earliest "Wise men" were known ...
