Dear Carie,

I hope I be not thought wiser than my teachers if I say that, since the aim 
is to write biblical Hebrew words in the original script, the advice given so 
far has to be reversed, i.e. with the first letter starting at the right of 
the page and working left: Amen (aleph mem nun) would actually begin on the 
right and read (from left) nun mem aleph.

This advice applies to all the examples. reading them left to right, 
transpose them right-to-left in Hebrew script.

As I say, this advice may be unnecessary, but in any case it can't do any 
harm, even if it is blindingly obvious.

Best wishes,

Bruce Gardner.
