how to say “to follow” in Hebrew
If you’ve got a good eye for Hebrew roots and a familiarity with Biblical figures, you might spot the connection between the פעל verb לעקוב – to follow, and יעקב – Jacob, right away: the root ע.ק.ב means heel, so that when we follow someone, we’re tracing their footsteps.
Follow (after) the signage. (spoken to a male)
לעקוב can also mean to watch closely, as in:
We are following (watching closely) every development.
