Hebrew for wisdom

Hebrew for wisdom

חכמה
 
This one’s to my friend Mark Whelan from… England, LA, Germany, etc. Thanks for the request (the rest of you can request words as well!)
 
הוּא אִישׁ חָכָם (hoo eesh hah-KHAHM) means he is a wise man. It’s used also to mean he is a smart man. So, for instance, if a man were to take a class with Ulpan La-Inyan, he’d be considered איש חכם.
 
But to mean he is intelligent, it’s more common to say הוּא אִינְטֶלִגֶנְטִי (hoo een-TEH-lee-GHEN-tee).
 
This guy looks pretty smart.
 
 
Or to mean she’s an educated woman, you’d say הִיא אִשָּׁה מַשְׂכִּילָה (hee ee-SHAH mahs-kee-LAH).

Anyway, the word for
wisdom itself is חָכְמָה (hohkh-MAH). Note that it’s not hahkh-MAH, but hohkh-MAH.


שבת שלום (Shabbat Shalom) to all.


Listen and repeat.
