I was conversing with a gentleman on another forum, and he suggested to
me that several Hebrew toponyms and names of people were represented in
For example, the following he suggested were translated "the same" or
had "the same" meaning.
The Hebrew word for "Zion" is interchangeable with the Egyptian word for
The same for "Jebus" (as in Jebusite) with Egyptian Jebet
Hebrew "Duad" he equates with Egyptian "Pa-Djuat-Kha-ennuit (Psusennes)
Hebrew "Joab" (David's general) with Egyptian "Un-tchoab-endjed"
Hebrew "Tamar" with Egyptian "Maakhare Mutamhat"
Hebrew "Salmon" with Egyptian "Siamun"
Hebrew "Boaz" with Egyptian "Buas-orkon"
Hebrew "Obed" with Egyptian "Amenem-opet"
I am no Hebrew expert. This gentleman purports to be, and I am
presenting these questions to you because I'm sure someone here has the
Hebrew and Egyptian skill to offer some insight.
