Allah Means Curse in Hebrew

By; Nelson Walters

Author: Are We Ready for Jesus? How to Prepare for His Return. (May 2015)

Our modern culture promotes the idea that Muslims, Christians and Jews all worship the same God.  This “progressive” concept claims that since all three religions share many common scripture characters in their Holy books (such as Abraham and Jesus) and since all three religions  view their God-head as all-powerful, all knowing, and all-present; they must be the same.  An unbelieving world sees no difference.

Christians know Allah is not YHWH (the name of our God, the Lord Almighty), but arguing the differences is sometimes difficult to articulate to skeptics and unbelievers.  The fact that the name Allah means curse in Hebrew, however, clearly differentiates Allah from YHWH and identifies Allah for who he truly is.

Before we begin, I’d like to thank two Christian friends for bringing this fact to my attention.  I’m not a Hebrew scholar and learning this fact was eye-opening.  Please check out the websites of Midnight Watcher and Katie Griffith.


The Hebrew word “alah” means oath or curse.  In Arabic “allah” means “god.”  Both are pronounced the exact same way.  Is this a coincidence or a divine clue?  Let’s look at a few select verses where this word is found:

They (Israel) went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods whom they have not known and whom He had not allotted to them.  Therefore, the anger of the Lord burned against that land, to bring upon it every Alah (curse) which is written in this book;  and  the Lord uprooted them from their land in anger and in fury and in great wrath, and cast them into another land.’ (Deut. 29: 26-28 NASB, clarification and emphasis mine)

Moreover the Lord your God will circumcise your heart and the heart of your descendants, to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul, so that you may live.  The Lord your God will inflict all these Alah (curses) on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you. (Deut. 30: 6-7 NASB, clarification and emphasis mine)

These passages are incredible.  God’s Word tells us He will inflict “Allah” upon Israel’s enemies.  Islam (which means submission) is a harsh master over the Muslims.  It is a religion without hope.   (See the link for the effects of Sharia Law on its adherents.)

We also know from these verses that if Israel worships anyone but YHWH (Israel is currently rejecting Jesus), He will inflict “Allah”  upon them and uproot them from their land!  We know from MIDPOINT OF THE TRIBULATION: EARTH’S PERSPECTIVE that at the midpoint of the Tribulation, the Antichrist and his Islamic armies will conquer Jerusalem and send it’s people into captivity.  “Allah” will be inflicted upon Israel and will uproot them.

Not only are the Muslims and Jews punished by Allah (the curse), but all the Earth shall be as well:

The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant.  Therefore, Alah (a curse) devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left. (Isa. 24: 5-6 NASB, clarification and emphasis mine.)

Man’s sin will bring this curse upon them, and God will judge the Earth and burn it.  This is a perfect picture of the return of Jesus.  First the Antichrist and his Islamic forces shall devour the earth, then Jesus shall return and judge and burn the gentile nations with fire.

It is amazing that YHWH coded the name of the god of Islam into the Hebrew language thousands of years before Islam existed as a religion, and that in all these instances the curse is dependent on being unfaithful to YHWH.

It is fitting then that the first (law of primacy) mention of the word “alah” in scripture is found in Numbers 5 and is a test for the unfaithfulness of a wife.  The suspected wife is to be given “bitter water” and if no ill effect occurs, she is found innocent.  This is a perfect picture of the Church whose faithfulness to YHWH will be tested by the bitterness of Islam.


My entire ministry (Ready For Jesus Ministries) is dedicated to applying prophecy in every day life.  The subtitle of my new book is “how to prepare for His (Jesus’) return.” Prophecy without application is meaningless.

In a culture where the media and even the Pope are claiming that Allah and YHWH are the same, we need to answer that lie with a response that is short and easily understood.  This simple fact presented in this post might be the answer:  that 2000 years before Islam was created, YHWH programmed the Hebrew language so that the name of Islam’s god would mean “curse.”  No supreme being would ever allow his name to mean curse in any language; unless, of course, he wasn’t a supreme being.  The Hebrew language pre-dated Islam by thousands of years.  An all knowing being would be aware of the Hebrew word for curse, so obviously Allah is not all knowing.

Besides proving that Allah is not a supreme being, this simple fact proves YHWH is because he pre-knew that someday these prophetic passages would give the world a subtle hint that Islam was to be a curse upon the whole world.

Now, if you are going to respond to the lie that YHWH and Allah are the same, I recommend you arm yourself with more facts about Allah so you can intelligently respond.  However, the simple truth that Allah means curse in Hebrew might be your first salvo.  It is simple, it’s straightforward and speaks volumes about the issues at hand.

  1. I disagree with the analysis of this article. It is one thing to say Islam and Christians do not worship the same being, but another thing to go down the path of this logic you are depicting in this article. The word Allah is the word for God in Arabic and used throughout Arabic Bible translations; just ask a Christian arab. The word Allah for God, was used long before Islam came about. I believe Islam hijacked the word, because it resonated with the people during the inception of Islam; not more no less.

  2. Well you said alah could also mean oath. So could the Muslims be making an oath to god…maybe the name Allah includes a meaning of an oath or covenant to their god. Plus in the Arabic bible the word Allah is used even in the first commandent…so are all arabs cursed or taking an oath. Many arab christians used the word Allah for god… look up signs of Allah in nature and you’ll see the name of Allah in arabic in the most beautiful of places. You seem to be talking out if your desires. Why dont you pray for people rather to say God. YHWH. Or Allah. Has cursed a whole nation. Im praying to the God of Abraham he is one and I call him Allah. It comes from Al ilah the God. Plus you need better proof. Peace

    1. Joseph, Many folks have misread the article as you have. Most of those who have misread speak Arabic, and this makes sense. This article is discussing a Hebrew word not the Arabic word. The Hebrew word ALAH “sounds” like Allah. That is the meaning of the article. This is in the same way the word “Hamas” sounds like the Hebrew word for violence. This word ALAH isn’t the same word as the word for God and it doesn’t mean the same thing. You are correct that the Arabic word for God is Allah.

      So what is the point of this post? Why even discuss this coincidence? When Jews read the scriptures in Hebrew and come to this word ALAH, which means curse, the sentence “sounds” like “when Allah comes into our land.” It is a play on words, the meaning is “curse” but it sounds like Allah. Now is this an accidental sound-alike or did the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob allow these sound alike words to be created in order to teach a lesson? Our scriptures indicate that 7 years before the return of Yeshua the Messiah, the Jews will make a covenant with the Islamic nations led by their Mahdi and Isa. The Islamic nations will break this covenant 3 1/2 years into the covenant, invade Israel, and capture Jerusalem. They will kill 2/3 of all Jews in the land, rape the women, and carry many into captivity in concentration camps. Allah, the Islamic god, will truly become a curse. Isa will then begin to order the systematic killing of all who do not bow to Allah and the Mahdi. We call this the Great Tribulation. Millions or even billions of Jews and Christians will be killed by Isa. He will truly break the cross as predicted by Muslim writings. This is the teaching of the Bible.

      Of course, luckily, that is not the end of the story. Our scriptures also teach that after 3 1/2 years, Yeshua the Messiah returns riding on the clouds with the resurrected saints who were put to death by Isa. Yeshua will free the Jewish captives who remain and fight against Isa and Mahdi and their armies. He will kill the Mahdi, Isa and their armies with a single word and cast their god into a bottomless pit. Yeshua will then rule the world from Jerusalem for a 1000 years.

      It is important to know that the God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob is the true God. He is the Father. Yeshua is the son. Our scriptures clearly say “Who is the liar but the one who denies that Yeshua is the Messiah? This is the antichrist, the one who denies the Father and the Son.” All who have faith that Yeshua is the son of God and that he died to forgive our sins on the cross and rose on the 3rd day will inherit eternal life. It is the free gift of God. Those who don’t believe in Yeshua as the son of God will suffer eternal punishment (as I described above) because they have rejected his sacrifical death on the cross and blasphemed his Holy name.

      You asked why I don’t pray for people. I do. I have already prayed that you will come to know Yeshua as I have come to know him. Warning people of the wrath to come and the danger of believing in a false god is the most loving and peaceful thing that can be done. Peace. And true peace only comes from having faith in the prince of peace: Yeshua.

  3. Mahdi will fight again Dajjal. Yakjud and Makjud among Dajjal army. Their number is huge till can drained Sea of Galilee.

      1. Nelson, I should not have said about yakjud and makjud. They are nothing to do with Mahdi and million or billion might not related to battle between dajjal and mahdi…sorry my bad.

        Might be million and billion related to yakjud and makjud killing mankind. might be not. Kind of assumption that a Muslim should avoid, So I choose to say I do not know. Only Allah know what human dont know.

        All bad thing come from me, All the Good one come from Allah All Mighty.

  4. Allah S.W.T is sufficient for me. Prophet Isa A.S Son of Maryam the only human can kill Dajjal with Allah will. He is the SAVIOR.

    Nelson, you are so right. Information on your scripture( GOD WORDS ) which is not again Al-Quran and Hadith are true about ANTI-CHRIST. The One who lead Islamic empire to battle ANTI-CHRIST empire are a sinner also true. Not even this men know that he is the one who will lead the empire to battle ANTI-CHRIST. Allah protect this men. so that Dajjal cannot find him before the battle. That is why only Allah S.W.T know the best.

    Muslim call this man Al-MAHDI. He will accept this task by force because No Islamic leaders at that time suit to lead the battle. He lead the Islamic empire and execute millions if not billions are also true. At that time, people who dont prepare them self NOW will easily fall under ANTI-CHRIST empire and become DAJJAL army and the number are so HUGE. That is why Allah S.W.T really love his creation and warn us to prepare for this great test.

    At that time, Islamic Empire army number are so little compare to Dajjal army. It is a taught,desperation time for Islamic army until Allah return Prophet Isa A.S to earth for his MAJOR role. Easily Kill Dajjal with Allah will and clear his name being GOD. Prophet Isa A.S is the only human SAVIOR at that time. After that the remaining Dajjal army will accept ISLAM not by FORCE.

    Remember, Muslim dont force people to accept Islam.

    See. Allah the creator always know what his creation do not know, and Allah S.W.T is sufficient for me.

    1. Thank you for this information Abu. Let me ask a question. Do you believe Al-Mahdi is Antichrist or fights against him? Do you believe Al-Mahdi kills millions or billions or does Antichrist? I could not tell from the above.

  5. Nelson, I believe most of Christian think that MUSLIM is ANTI-CHRIST. MUSLIM are not ANTI-CHRIST. We both fighting the same enemy. MUSLIM call it DAJJAL. Dont treat MUSLIM as your ENEMY.

    We should prepare our self to fight this enemy before it arrive. DAJJAL will make people love this world and forget next eternal life.For those who doesnt prepare, they will think DAJJAL is their true GOD.

    I believe, the defamation already start base on information from Al-Quran, Hadith and previous books. It is the greatest test for MUSLIM to test our IMAN. We include pray in our worship to Allah S.W.T 5 time a day asking to survive from the evil of DAJJAL defamation.

    1. The Muslim people are just like all people. They are not the enemies of Christians. Christians are commanded to love not hate. You are correct that we face a common enemy. I don’t think you have identified him correctly, however.

      Abu, I believe an Antichrist Empire will form and a man of sin will lead it. Our scriptures are clear that the empire will be formed by Islamic nations and their leader will be Islamic. You are right that he will be the enemy of all people and will deceive the world. We anticipate he will execute millions if not billions who refuse to worship Allah. Isa, who you referred to earlier will play a major role in supporting this man of Sin.

      During the time before what you call “Resurrection Day,” all people will be forced to choose between this man of Sin and Yeshua. My focus is to help all people (Muslims, Christians, Jews, etc.) choose Yeshua who is Life and not choose the Man of Sin.

  6. Nelson, I cannot accept Yeshua. Because our definition on One GOD are way different. Allah S.W.T is sufficient for me.

    I like to read more the love from Bible it self. The way you reply, I believe and sure you are capable to share more love inside Bible it self.

    Reading bad thing about own religion by other religion is a bad experience. Personally I think it kind of planting SEED OF HATE on people mind and heart. Where we should planting seed of LOVE. Where I believe you are full with your GOD LOVE. Keep up with good work. I believe you can produce better than this.

    Please Share more GOD Love from Your Bible.

    All bad thing come from me, All the Good one come from Allah All Mighty.

    1. Thanks for continuing the converstation Abu, God is certainly one, and only one. But when people discount the 3-fold nature of God, they miss this key factor, God is Holy which means set apart. He is vastly different in nature than humans or his creation. We Christians believe that God is Father-Son-Spirit, yet still one God. If God is infinate why can’t his nature be this way, Abu? Please don’t insist on making God less than he is and forcing him to be like a human. He is much, much more.

      As far as the question of love-hate. If you were in the middle of the road and a truck was bearing down on you, nothing could be more loving than to get you out of the road and away from certain death. God so loved the world that he sent us Yeshua. God so loved us that Yeshua died for us. This is real love Abu. Trying to help a person from off the road they are on which leads to certain death is love not hate.

      Do not be afraid to pray the prayer I suggested. What do you have to lose? If YHWH is the true God, he will reveal himself to you in answer to your prayer.

  7. Nelson, let say that man accept Yeshua as LORD with all his heart and repent. At this stage I believe base on your reply, he is save by Yeshua , now he is sin free. But he die without a chance to ask forgiveness from people that he hurt so much. Did he enter Hell? How about other people that being hurt? Any Justice for them?

    To be a true Muslim, we only worship Allah All Mighty, follow his guidance, we are require to believe on Allah All Mighty authentic Books and his messengers.We love them all. Including Prophet Isa A.S Son Of Maryam. He do miracles with the will of Allah. One of them, He can speak since he is baby to defense his Mother Maryam from tremendous calumny by saying that he is GOD Messenger. Without Allah will, he is same as an ordinary man. He is not dead yet and will return to clear his name from being GOD. He will help us kill Dajjal and he will be ummat of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W.

    As a true Muslim, they are forbidden to FORCE anyone to accept Islam and do harm to innocent people. Only God will give Hidayah to whom he want. Muslim duty is just spreading GOD words. If you found a muslim forcing you to accept Islam, Tell them the GOD All Mighty Creator will “pay” them well on judgement day.

    Nelson, please dont Hate me. We are same, you and I are WAITING. We have our own Duty for Next eternal life. Let please our only One GOD the Master of Judgement Day.

    1. We are very much the same Abu, I don’t hate you, I desire only the best for you. We are both sinful humans trying to worship the one true God. There is a deceiver however.

      600 years before the Muslim prophet came, Yeshua foretold about Isa (Isa and Yeshua and NOT the same individual). Yeshua said in Luke 21:8 “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near (Resurrection Day is near)’ Do not go after them.” I fully expect to see Isa, son of Maryam on this earth. He will do exactly what Yeshua prophesied he will, which is exactly what you are saying he will do as well. He will claim to be Yeshua, the historic Jesus. And he will claim to not be God. I fully expect this and for him to produce miracles. The Apostle John prophesied this in Rev. 13:13-14 “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform.” Notice that Isa will deceive many.

      I also do not believe Allah and YHWH are the same God. They cannot be. Allah says he has no son. YHWH speaks of Yeshua in Psalm 2:7-9 “He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. ‘Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance,and the very ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.”

      Isa will initially crush the power of the holy people (Christians and Jews). Just when all seems lost, Yeshua will return on the clouds of heaven. This is how you know the difference between Isa and Yeshua. Yeshua comes on the clouds with the bright glory of God like lightening. Anyone else claiming to be Jesus (like Isa) will walk into the Middle East like any man. Then Yeshua will raise the dead and the living righteous will join them in the air. After the righteous are safe, Yeshua will bring wrath upon the world and crush those that have deceived the world and cast them into Hell. This is the rod of iron that will break the nations like pottery.

      Abu. Pray the prayer I suggested. Pray that God show you who Yeshua truly is and the wonderful salvation he offers now before it is too late. You and I are the same, we both have this choice. Choose Yeshua and find eternal life.

      1. In terms of God’s justice, “the wages of sin are death.” Only faith in Yeshua and his blood sacrifice for us provides salvation.
        In terms of man’s justice, God provides us with governments and this justice is meeted out through laws and legal systems. As men we are to work for justice for all through these means.

        I hope that is what you are asking about. I have enjoyed conversing with you Abu. You are a man seeking the truth.

        1. Thanks Nelson, I got your answer.
          Information are everywhere, and I afraid It will harm other people if got the false one.
          Indeed, as human we should be grateful for what God has provided us. God the Creator always knows best.

      1. I believe its only coincidence. Might be its Fitna at the end of times. Allah All-Mighty will curse human who worship other than Him alone. On The Day of Resurrection, not a single human will argue with Allah judgement base on what they did on earth. You do good, enter Heaven, do bad enter hell. That is how a true justice work, because the world we live now is full of injustice.

        1. Yes Abu, the world is full of injustice. But how much good do you have to do to merit heaven? Can a perfect and awesome God associate with sinners like you and me? Of course not! None of us are worthy based on our deeds. Scriptures say even our best deeds are filthy rags compared to our Glorious God. So how is a man to be saved? You know in your heart this is true, no man can save himself through good deeds. Believing that doing good will get us into heaven and into the presence of God is blasphemy.

          But there is a way, not something that we can do, but something only God can do for us. 2000 years ago, Yeshua who was perfect and knew no sin died on a Roman Cross as a sin offering on your behalf. “While you and I were yet sinners, the Messiah died for us.” He took our sin upon himself and gave us his perfect righteousness. Then Yeshua rose from the dead, proving that he has the power over death. Only if we have Yeshua’s perfect righteous can we approach a perfect God. We gain this righteousness through faith that Yeshua is God and that he died for us.

          There have been false prophets that have come and said “God has no son.” But as the scriptures tell us “Who is the liar but he who denies the Father and the Son, he is antichrist.” Do not believe them. They say this because they did not understand the phrase “Only begotten son.” This means “ONE AND ONLY SON” not what these false teachers teach. If they are wrong about this one thing, this very important thing, they are wrong about many things.

          Yeshua said “I am THE way, THE truth, and THE life, no one comes to the Father except by me.” Pray that Yeshua will show you the truth and lead you on the way to life. There is no greater love Abu than what Yeshua did for you and me. I am praying you will see the truth and it will set you free.

          Peace be unto you Abu.

          1. Thank Nelson for reply, You are the most gentlemen. Some of them, they will delete some post when they cannot find the way to answer people…Are they try to hide something from people?…which for me its injustice.. I dont know how others muslim think, but for me,

            GOD create and offer us Heaven and Hell for reason. Its to pay justice and injustice on earth. God also say If you are sincere repent and ask for forgiveness, with Allah will, Allah the merciful will forgive you. No matter how big its is. He the master, he the creator, he can do as he wish.

            In personal, I believe there are 2 type of wrong doing that cause Hell.

            One is what you done to people,
            Second is wrong doing to GOD.
            BUT If you worship other than One GOD, You will live in Hell Forever. No matter how good person you are. GOD curse are beyond everything. Even you cannot smell Heaven!

            For example case study:
            I am very powerful human on earth. I can do anything I want no matter its good or bad as long as I want it,
            no matter how much it will cause(money or live) I will get It as i wish.
            How Christian handle this kind of man? how about other people that hurt?

          2. Abu, You are also a gentleman obviously seeking the truth. I pray God blesses you with knowledge of that truth.

            God is love and God is justice. These are two sides of his nature. He is also a God of infinite Holiness. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve had a relationship with God and walked in his presence because they knew no sin. Once they sinned, they could no longer be in God’s presence and death entered the world. Scripture tells us there is no forgiveness without the shedding of blood. That is why ancient Israel was given commands to begin animal sacrifices. These sacrifices were prophetic of the coming “once and for all sacrifice” of the Messiah, Yeshua.

            You are correct that repentance from sin is necessary. You are also correct that God can forgive whom he chooses. This is his love and mercy side.

            You miss his justice side, that sin carries a penalty “the wages of sin are death.” Someone had to die. This was Yeshua, the Lamb of God. This free gift of salvation and forgiveness of sins will end soon. At that point Yeshua will return on the clouds, resurrect the dead in Christ, and rapture the righteous who are still alive. At that point, with the righteous removed from the surface of the earth, Yeshua will pour out his wrath on those who have blasphemed his Holy Name and not accepted him as Savior and Lord. Repentance alone is not enough, because those people still blaspheme the sacrifice and holy blood of Yeshua: the shedding of blood that forgives sins. “Vengeance is mine says the Lord” and Yeshua will pour out his vengeance on those like your man of power above if they have not accepted him as Lord and repented at that point.

            I implore you Abu to pray and ask God about Yeshua. He is the truth. Not that he just tells us of the truth, he himself is truth. Outside of him there is no truth and there is no life. Salvation hinges on what we believe about Yeshua. Death if we do not accept him (this is the justice of God) and life if we do (this is the love and mercy of God.) None of us are worthy of forgiveness. Scripture tells us that we are not saved by our own efforts so that no man may boast. It is faith in Yeshua alone that saves.

  8. why ppl are so stupid
    Allah (English pronunciation: /ˈælə/ or /ˈɑːlə/;[1] Arabic: الله‎ Allāh, IPA: [ʔalˤˈlˤɑːh] ( listen)) is the Arabic word for God (al ilāh, literally “the God”).[2][3][4] The word has cognates in other Semitic languages, including Elah in Aramaic, ʾĒl in Canaanite and Elohim in Hebrew.[5][6]

    It is used mainly by Muslims to refer to God in Islam,[7] but it has also been used by Arab Christians since pre-Islamic times.[8] It is also often, albeit not exclusively, used by Bábists, Bahá’ís, Indonesian and Maltese Christians, and Mizrahi Jews.[5][9][10] Christians and Sikhs in West Malaysia also use and have used the word to refer to God. This has caused political and legal controversies there as the law in West Malaysia prohibits non-Islamic uses of the word.[11][12][13][14]

    try to speak Elah then Allah and its very similar….


    1. Thanks for all of this Black bird, but you missed the entire meaning of the post. The meaning of the post is that the Hebrew word for “curse” SOUNDS like Allah. So that when the Hebrew text is read and God’s Word says he will bring a curse on the land, the Word for curse sounds like “Allah.” The same is true for the Hebrew word for violence sounding like Hamas. These are interesting similarities.

  9. His translation of Allah in Arabic to English is wrong, he says the translation of Allah in Arabic is god, this is not the true translation. The exact translation of Allah in Arabic to English is the one creator of everything.The writers manipulation of the word Allah, making it into a name is the basis of his argument which is why it fails.
    How could one be so foolish to assume that the creator has a name when the creator is the one who created everything.

    Message to the writer:
    If you are a man of God then you would never criticise another mans religion (especially a religion which is so similar to his own) or stir the pot.

    1. True Believer, thanks for your comment. Scripture clearly identifies the creator by name. His name is Jesus/Yeshua. So God has a name, it’s Jesus.

      In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. (John 1:1-3)

      For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. (Col. 1: 13-16)

      So as you see, Jesus, the Holy Son of God, created all things. They were created by him and were also created for Him.

  10. That is so dumb! You’re not a linguist and even the linguistic experts state that “Al” – is used for their article “the” and “lah” means the deity or sole God. This is similar to other semitic languages, such as the Aramaic Elah, or Elaha and Alaha in Syraic all meaning God. You can’t just insert different vowels in Hebrew to equate to an Arabic word when in the first place, we don’t know the true vowels anyways and it’s a different language.

    1. Hi Liz, thanks for responding. I’m not sure you read the article. I’m saying that certain words in Hebrew “sound” like Arabic words, so that when the scripture is read in Hebrew and the word “chaos” is pronounced it sounds like Allah. In the same way when “violence” is pronounced it sounds like Hamas, etc. I find that interesting and probably not a coincidence. You are correct however, that I’m not a Hebrew linguist.

  11. Wow. . . very interesting and insightful about the Hebrew word for “curse” being “alah.” Also interesting is Jeanne’s posting that the Hebrew word of “violence” is “chamac (khaw-mawce’)” pronounced, “hamas.” These are certainly timely insights! God is all-knowing; praise God! Another good article!

  12. From Strong’s Concordance, based on the KJV translation, there are several different Hebrew words for ‘curse’ used throughout the OT, but the two words that sound the most similar to “Allah” are these:

    422 ‘alah aw-law’ a primitive root; properly, to adjure, i.e. (usually in a bad sense) imprecate:–adjure, curse, swear.

    423 ‘alah aw-law’ from 422; an imprecation:–curse, cursing, execration, oath, swearing.

    Interestingly, I did not see Deut. 30: 6-7 listed in Strong’s. However, 423 is used in Deuteronomy 29:19; Neh. 10:29; Job 31:30; Is. 24:26; Dan. 9:11; and Zec. 5:3.

  13. In Aramaic “allah” means “god.” Aramaic or ARABIC? I think the Aramaic word for god is ‘Eloi’. Jesus cried ‘Eloi Eloi lama sabachthani’. Am I right?

  14. Wow, that is stunning. Thanks, Nelson.

    Now let’s follow that that up with Isaiah 60:18:

    “Violence shall no longer be heard in your land,
    Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders;
    But you shall call your walls Salvation,
    And your gates Praise.”

    In Hebrew, the word for violence in that verse is chamac (khaw-mawce’), pronounced “hamas.” Sound familiar? From Strong’s:

    And the Hebrew word for “salvation” is yshuw`ah (yesh-oo’-aw):

    yshuw`ah yesh-oo’-aw feminine passive participle of 3467; something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance; hence, aid, victory, prosperity:–deliverance, health, help(-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.

    Again, Isaiah 60:18

    “Hamas shall no longer be heard in your land,
    Neither wasting nor destruction within your borders;
    But you shall call your walls Yeshua,
    And your gates Praise.”
