  Yes, and so the biblical Hebrew corresponded to its own cosmology which was Elohist/Yahvist. It was not inclusive of the ideologies of its neighbors or enemies, thus what it meant then is what it means today. The Hebrew is also dynamic and the Greek static, and in that sense incompetent to fully communicate Hebrew thoghtforms as seen in the examples provided by others (i.e., tsedakah/righteousness, Torah/Law, etc.).

 Yes, and it is equally true of our alphabet, which is as much derived from palaeo-Hebrew as the more modern Hebrew alphabet is. With some of our letters it is still obvious in the forms: "O" is derived from a picture of an eye (Hebrew `ayin, also a circle in palaeo-Hebrew), "M" is derived from a picture of water (waves) (Hebrew mem/mayim). 
 So what?
