Hi Motke,

>I'm sorry for not replying sooner. Life has turned a bit hectic for me. Your posts are very interesting.

Thank you.

> May be I'm missing something here. The Jewish
> Aramaic, as well as in Syriac, word for "standing,
> rising, resurrection" is ܩܝܡ or Qayim (compare

> which would be similar to Arabic قاءم or قايم

> My question is: What is the Hebrew equivalent?
>In Hebrew:

>"he is rising / has risen" = /qam/ (spelled قَم)
>"rising" (noun) = /qima/
>"stature" = /qoma/
>"resurrection" = /tquma/
"exists" = /qayyam/

>(My dictionary says the (Hebrew) root is Q-W-M. But you never get to hear this 'W' as a consonant.)

>There are also a few Aramaic phrases we use in Hebrew, like /bar qyama/ = "sustainable, durable", /qayma lan/ = "we accept that...".

>But for the other words you listed we use different roots:

>"[he is] standing" = /عomed/ (cf. Arabic's عمود)

عمود in Arabic and ܥܡܘܕܚܐ is Syriac and Aramaic means column and it does not mean standing

>"resurrection" (more common) = /tحiyya/ (cf. Arabic's تَحِيَّة)

تحية in Arabic means greetings not resurrection

And here is Qayim from the Aramaic/Syriac NT and it is Qayim or ܩܝܡ and yes you can have an ܐ (Alip) and you can find it written with a letter ܝ or (Ya) as you would find it in Classical Arabic and here is a link to Qayim in the Peshitta (The Aramaic/Syriac) NT

So my question to you now is how about Nahem? Where does it fit? Here is the word ܢܚܡ

Here is a link to the word in Syriac and Aramaic
