I think you misunderstood me. I don't "read" Hebrew in the sense of being able to read it like it was a first or even a second language. I mean, I investigate the Hebrew on my own and from the meanings of the words (or possible meanings according to translators), or even the meanings of the letters themselves individually (there's a triplicate chain code in there), I often see the "God thought" or principle that He was intending by finding that pattern again somewhere else.
I have found over the years that He has done things a certain way and left "clues". If you see a word used once or twice ONLY, that is a word to pay attention to. So is the part of scripture where ANY Hebrew word is used for the first time.
In our western mindsets, we think of them as simply books. God thinks of the whole as a tapestry He is weaving with the scripture verses content, as a single principle. So if you find a thread of "red" (salvation) in principle in Genesis, you can find that same principle in every book in the bible all the way to Revelation, because there are no broken "threads". The wording may be different, but the PRINCIPLE is the same.
He taught me to study it this way (in the beginning it was me, one other person, and Him and that was IT), and it is what enables me to see patterns more readily. So you're not studying lines of scriptures, you're studying threads of principles. But the thing is, because the mindset is so different from ours, principles are sometimes "hidden" in plain sight, in the words themselves.
For instance, the Hebrew word for color, in the phrase in Gen.,"and the color of the manna was as the color of bdellium", also means eye or fountain and relates to the phrase "apple of His eye", because apple relates both to round and to color as does eye. The fountain they are talking about is round, could even be like a waterspout, or if above land, like a whirlwind. All these things are related, but you could not in a million years see that in the English language. THIS is why I study the Hebrew.
I am not a fan of the Greek for this reason also, and will look for the words in Hebrew even if they are in the NT because I am 99% sure the whole NT was at one time written in Hebrew, just because of the "threads". Blessings....
