how to say “lesson” in Hebrew

And Isaac planted in that land and he reaped in that year a hundredfold, and God blessed him. (Genesis 26:12)
שער in מאה שערים refers not to gates, but to measures. And digging into comparison words in other languages (Arabic, Aramaic), we find that שער – measure and שער – gate actually sounded quite different in ancient Hebrew: שער meaning measure had a sh sound at the beginning, while שער meaning gate had a th or t sound, as in the German Tor – gate.
