Strong's Concordance with Hebrew and Greek Lexicon

Voice (grammar) For example, in the sentence: The cat ate the mouse. The verb "ate" is in the active voice, but in the sentence: The mouse was eaten by the cat. The verbal phrase "was eaten" is passive. In The hunter killed the bear. The verb "killed" is in the active voice, and the doer of the action is the "hunter". The bear was killed by the hunter. The verbal phrase "was killed" is followed by the word "by" and then by the doer "hunter". The active voice is the most commonly used in many languages and represents the "normal" case, in which the subject of the verb is the agent. In the active voice the subject of sentence performs the action or causes the happening denoted by the verb. In the passive voice the grammatical subject of the verb is the recipient (not the doer) of the action denoted by the verb. The Spanish language and the English language use a periphrastic passive voice; that is, it is not a single word form, but rather a construction making use of other word forms.

Greek alphabet, pronunciation and language Greek belongs to the Hellenic branch of the Indo-European language family, and is spoken by about 13 million people mainly in Greece and Cyprus, where it is an official language. Greek is also recognised as a minority language in parts of Italy, and in Albania, Armenia, Romania and Ukraine. Greek was first written in Mycenae with a script known as Linear B, which was used between about 1500 and 1200 BC. This variety of Greek is known as Mycenaean. On Crete another script, known as the Cypriot syllabary, was used to write the local variety of Greek between about 1200 and 300 BC. The Greek alphabet has been in continuous use since about 750 BC. When the Greeks adapted the Phoenician alphabet to write their language they used five of the Phoenician consonants to represent vowel sounds: yodh [j] became Ι (iota), waw [w] became Υ (upsilon), 'aleph [ʔ] became Α,(alpha), 'ayin [ʕ] became Ο (omicron), and he [h] became Ε (epsilon).

The Hebrew Alphabet The numerical value of the letters is interesting when one understands the meaning of numbers. For example, Aleph the first letter stands for unity, for origin, for power, stability. . is the primal vibration, the point of light out of which everything came. In Gematria, the system of where every word us analyzed numerological according the numeric value of each letter, the numerical value of Aleph is 1 + 30 + 80 = 111. There are three one's reflecting the Trinity. 111 = 1 + 10 + 100: In Gematria, the unities in numbers relate to the divine world, the tens relates to the spiritual world, and the hundreds relate to the physical world. The symbolic value is more problematic, as the symbol for a letter can often be stretched or interpreted in the way you want. Moreover, some of the letters have symbols of which the relationship with the letter has been lost over time, that is, we don't know anymore why that letter has that symbol. Some letters have clearly defined values. Aleph Mem Shin
