This Week’s Jewish Terminology Word is: Nevi’im

Shalom Children of G-d!

Welcome back to Marie Speaks G-d’s Grace Bible Study.

This week’s Jewish terminology word is: Nevi’im

So for today’s word which my personally owned The JPS Dictionary of Jewish Words by Joyce Eisenberg and Ellen Scolnic 2001 copyright 1st edition defines this weeks Jewish Terminology Word as a Hebrew noun pronounced (nih-vee-EEM); The second of the three books that comprise the TANAKH, along with Torah and Kethuvim. The English name of Nevi’im is Prophets. These 21 sections trace Jewish history from the time of Moses’ death until the destruction of the First Temple in Jerusalem and the exile of the Jews to Babylonia. They contain detailed history and commentary on ancient Jewish civilizations. Nevi’im also has lengthy writings about monotheism, evil, and the wages of sin, much of which are in a poetic form. The weekly haftarah readings are taken from the various books in Nevi’im.

My Jewish Learning states about Nevi’im….

Nevi’im (Prophets) presents Israel’s history as a nation on its land. The Israelites conquer and settle; they are beset by local enemies and eventually by imperial powers. Political and prophetic leaders vie for hearts; the supporters of God‘s covenant do battle against the paganism of neighboring groups and among the Israelites themselves. A kingdom, a capital, and a Temple are built and eventually destroyed. At the end of Nevi’im, prophets who experienced the exile teach a renewed monotheism to a chastened Israel.

Historically, Nevi’im begins with the conquest of Eretz Yisrael under the leadership of JoshuaMoses‘ successor (c. 1200 BCE) and concludes with the prophecies of Malachi to those rebuilding the Temple after their return from Babylonia (c. 515 BCE). Jewish convention divides the books into Nevi’im Rishonim, “Former Prophets,”and Nevi’im Aharonim, “Latter Prophets.” Nevi’im Rishonim consists of prose works built around a historical narrative–Joshua, JudgesSamuel, and Kings. Nevi’im Aharonim encompasses the “literary prophets,” such as AmosIsaiah, and Jeremiah.

Two voices are heard in Nevi’im RishonimOne is a nationalist voice, trumpeting heroic leaders such as Joshua and David and the empire briefly consolidated under Solomon. More dominant is a covenantal voice, which explains the fortunes of leaders and the nation on the basis of their fidelity to God.


Currently I am reading on my own Shabbat time the Book of Isaiah. I found a video that might explain the Book of Isaiah more clearly than I might. To be quite honest… I am finding the Book of Isaiah difficult to not only understand, but retain. I do enjoy reading and understanding what I am currently able, but there is not a doubt in my mind I will need more in depth instruction on this book.

The Prophet Isaiah | Prophets of the Bible with Professor Lipnick

Personally my favorite Prophets of the Tanakh are Debrah and Jeremiah.


maybe because from reading the Book of Jeremiah I get that times where difficult for him, so much so He is known as the weeping Prophet. I think often times we are taught that some one who weeps, moans, cries, or even whales… is weak or over emotional or even mentally unstable. But, from reading the Book of Jeremiah, I get that He felt deeply even gravely for His Nation and those surrounding His Nation. He didn’t want anyone to fall into the pit so to speak, but He wanted everyone to return to Torah and HaShem. Unfortunately, due to many false prophets and evil leaders… Jeremiah suffered great troubles. Troubles that I am pretty sure many of us including myself, would not want to go through today.

Jeremiah, in my opinion is a true example of a determined man for G-d.

Below is a link to an oldie, but goodie movie I love about the Prophet Jeremiah.

And there is the Prophet Debrah.

I have spoken about the Prophet Debrah, before, but I love love love reading and learning about her. In my mind she is the perfect Jewish Woman Warrior Judge Mother Wife and so much more. If I could go back in time and meet a couple of Woman, she would definitely be on the list. A while ago, I read the Book titled… All the Woman of the Bible I don’t remember who wrote the ones I have, because I have a couple of versions of the Book. Anyhow, when I was learning to dress modestly, I fell deeply in love with the description of the woman and modesty being more than just clothes, but mind, tongue, speech, and living…..; to name a few. Honestly, reading the Book all the Woman of the Bible helped me shed so many of the feminist over sexual teaching I had previously been taught regarding a proper conduct, mind, speech, and clothing of a woman who loves G-d. That book helped me begin my change and aided my conversion process to Orthodox Judaism. I truly feel so very blessed that G-d has used books to help me learn and grown in Torah. #thankyouHaShem

I found this very interesting What is OV? What is YIDORI? Leviticus 19:31 Do not turn to the ovoth [a ba’al ov is a wizard who speaks from his armpits], and to the yidonim [a yidoni is one who places the bone of an animal called “yidoa” in his mouth, and the bone speaks].

Welcome the following is a brief review of this Bible Study. 1. This BLOG post will have the resources and sources links for the Season 5 Bible Studies . 2. All Books used and Readings from during Live Bible Study can be found on Our Website: Marie Speaks GOD’s Grace. Live in the Season 5 portion of the website. 3. After Live Bible Studies have completed: I will upload to Rumble, and post link in this BLOG. How we conduct Bible Studies here: We believe G-D has called each of us to search matters out. (It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, And the glory of a king to plumb a matter. Like the heavens in their height, like the earth in its depth, Is the mind of kings—unfathomable.. Proverbs 25:2 -3) This is one reason why here at Marie Speaks G-D’s Grace Bible Study, we review several historical references and resources, of which we provide links and or screen shots for others to study at their leisure. We have been directed by G-D Wonderful and Almighty, to go Book by Book, Verse by Verse; sharing HIS Torah and Tanakh. We believe as directed by G-D Our Heavenly Father, learning and growing in Torah and Tanakh leads to understanding and wisdom; this shall only be achieved in reading, studying, and sharing HIS Word for ourselves; not relying on man. Learning, growing, and studying with OUR L-D is to be done with others that are like minded, but more so during our personal time. The BLOGs are written to assist those just beginning to study the BIBLE as a starting point. The Live or recorded Bible Studies are to cover and release opportunities and guidance, but ultimately is ones own personal responsibility to rule, govern, and be purposeful in their relationship with G-D. Proverbs 22: 4 thru 6 The effect of humility is fear of the LORD, Wealth, honor, and life. Thorns and snares are in the path of the crooked; He who values his life will keep far from them. Train a lad in the way he ought to go; He will not swerve from it even in old age. Ezekiel 18:20thru 22 The person who sins, he alone shall die. A child shall not share the burden of a parent’s guilt, nor shall a parent share the burden of a child’s guilt; the righteousness of the righteous shall be accounted to him alone, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be accounted to him alone. Moreover, if the wicked one repents of all the sins that he committed and keeps all My laws and does what is just and right, he shall live; he shall not die. None of the transgressions he committed shall be remembered against him; because of the righteousness he has practiced, he shall live. Is it my desire that a wicked person shall die?—says the L-d G-D. It is rather that he shall turn back from his ways and live. May HaShem, Blessed be He continue to Bless us all and may we all be forever written in the Book of Life. O'Amein and O'Amein Let US Begin!!!!
