Hebrew 'S' or 'Sh' becomes Aramaic 'T'
Shlama Akhay,

Since Alexander Hislop's observations regarding Hebrew and Aramaic word studies are educational (and sometimes thought-provoking as well), I thought I would include this nugget with the corresponding footnote. How Hebrew 'S' and 'Sh' often becomes Aramaic 'T' is enlightening. Also, knowing the alternate spellings of Yahweh's 'grand adversary' might prove advantageous if we should encounter them in ancient authors.

********* Quoting 'The Two Babylons' ********
Teitan is just the Chaldean form of Sheitan, * the very name by which Satan has been called from time immemorial by the Devil-worshippers of Kurdistan; and from Armenia or Kurdistan, this Devil-worship embodied in the Chaldean Mysteries came westward to Asia Minor, and thence to Etruria and Rome.

* The learned reader has no need of examples in proof of this frequent Chaldean transformation of the Sh or S into T; but for the common reader, the following may be adduced: Hebrew, Shekel, to weigh, becomes Tekel in Chaldee; Hebrew, Shabar, to break--Chaldee, Tabar; Hebrew, Seraphim--Chaldee, Teraphim, the Babylonian counterfeit of the Divine Cherubim or Seraphim !!! <!-- s:wow: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/wow.gif" alt=":wow:" title="Wow" /><!-- s:wow: --> ; Hebrew, Asar, to be rich--Chaldee, Atar; Hebrew, Shani, second-- Chaldee, Tanin, &c.

That Teitan was actually known by the classic nations of antiquity to be Satan, or the spirit of wickedness, and originator of moral evil, we have the following proofs: The history of Teitan and his brethren, as given in Homer and Hesiod, the two earliest of all the Greek writers, although later legends are obviously mixed up with it, is evidently the exact counterpart of the Scriptural account of Satan and his angels. Homer says, that "all the gods of Tartarus," or Hell, "were called Teitans." Hesiod tells us how these Teitans, or "gods of hell," came to have their dwelling there. The chief of them having committed a certain act of wickedness against his father, the supreme god of heaven, with the sympathy of many others of the "sons of heaven," that father "called them all by an opprobrious name, Teitans," pronounced a curse upon them, and then, in consequence of that curse, they were "cast down to hell," and "bound in chains of darkness" in the abyss. While this is the earliest account of Teitan and his followers among the Greeks, we find that, in the Chaldean system, Teitan was just a synonym for Typhon, the malignant Serpent or Dragon, who was universally regarded as the Devil, or author of all wickedness.

It's been reported that there was a certain boast made concerning the Titanic before it sunk. The arrogant saying evidently amounted to this.... "Not even God can sink the Titanic!" Do you get the connection?
Titanic = Teitan-ic = Sheitan-ic = Satanic's that for a reminder to the arrogant atheist that there is a God and He does hear every word we say?!? <!-- s:listen: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/listen.gif" alt=":listen:" title="Listen" /><!-- s:listen: -->

Shlama Akhi Larry,

Yes, the Yezidis of Iraq are a very strange group. Have you ever read their account of Lucifer being cast out of heaven?

No I haven't akh, but in 'The Two Babylons' by Hislop, a certain Mr. Layard was present at a Yezidi festival where a lengthy and very peculiar rite is described. That makes me think... I meant to ask you about something! The women cry with a loud 'tahlehl' in this ceremony or whatever it is. What does that mean in Aramaic?!?!? <!-- sHuh --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/huh.gif" alt="Huh" title="Huh" /><!-- sHuh -->

I'm not certain it's Aramaic. It may be Arabic, or more likely Kurdish (the Yezidis are a Kurdish people and speak an old Iranian~Aryan language - even though they live in Mesopotamia.)

Speaking of switching from Sh to T - that's how Ashur (Assyria) changed into Atour (as in www. <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->
