Interlinear Translation



This version contains also the method to date back to the roots and distinguish the meanings. However, it contains only the verbal roots from where we draw away, in their inference or division, from d’Olivét. In order to avoid repetition, the notes concerning radical distinctions will be present only at their first appearance in the text, in any form they come from. In this section the vowels of the Hebrew text result extremely compromised from the reproduction, but we must always keep in mind that the original Hebrew text was devoid of vowels, which have been added at a later time.

Chapter Seven


The topic or the main topics of the chapter coincide with the etymological topic of the name of number Seven: the physical, the material generation, vivification; the physical, the material becoming. All the ideas related to making, vivifying, fecundating, creating physical reality; to carry out the development, the physical growth. The topic of the name of number seven is almost always present also in the verse seven, seventeen and twenty-seven of each chapter. As the numbers and measurements of time, days, months and years, have a double faculty of expression, when the text requires for it, they are translated with the meaning of their names.



Translation with etymological dictionary

7.1 Thus IHOAH said to the individual existence: Come thou, in all that composing thy inner part, in the becoming; because I have seen, in thy vital disposition, the universalized subdivision of me.

King James Bible

7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.




And He said




To the individual existence


Come, become the essence of thee



And all that which composes thine interior, internal, intrinsic,


Through the become


Because the essence of thee


I have seen

Come, born from the subdivision, fragment [1]


According my being, feature, guise, semblance


In the disposition of the life

7.2 Of every less prolific animal thou will take to thee by sevens, the being and its faculty; and of the animal that are prolific in reproduction by two, the being and its faculty.

7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.

[1] D’Olivét’ note: “  Atvaw  vya  the-very-principle and-the-volitive-intellectual faculty-its own. Here is a decisive passage which makes one of the most astounding incoherences, one of the strongest physical contradictions, disappear from the narrative of Moses. For if the thebah was really a boat, as the translators leave it to be understood, of only three hundred cubits in length, fifty in breadth, and thirty in height, I ask how the terrestrial and aerial animals, by sevens of the pure and by twos of the impure, could lodge there? How could the provisions necessary for this innumerable multitude of famished beasts be placed therein, both during all the time of their sojourn in the boat, and during that time when, even after their going out, the earth, ravaged by the deluge, could offer them none? Has one ever considered how much so many carnivorous animals would consume; the tremendous quantity of animals that would be required for their nourishment, and the amount of herbs, or of grain necessary for those even which must be devoured to sustain the others? Obviously a physical impossibility. But Moses was not unlearned. The instructions that he had received in the sanctuaries of Egypt were not nonsense, and the particular inspiration which animated him did not lead him to absurdities. I believe I have had the pleasure of giving several times evident proof of it. I repeat that it is always as translator and not as commentator, that I have done so. These are not my ideas that I am giving; these are his own that I am restoring. Whatever may be the thebah, sacred storehouse of Nature given over to the repose of existence, whose mystery can never be wholly divulged, it is at least certain that it is not a boat, properly so-called. It is a place of refuge, an inaccessible retreat, where elementary life itself, is concentrated during great catastrophes, cataclysms and conflagrations which the universe undergoes. When the fountains of the deep rise in tempestuous violence covering and ravaging the earth, the principle and the efficient volitive faculty of all the beings of the animal, aerial or terrestrial kingdom, must be united there in that holy thebah. Now, what is a principle? What is an efficient volitive faculty? A principle is that which constitutes the being such as it is in general; for example, that which makes the lamb not a wolf: the hind, not a panther; the bull, not a hippopotamus. A principle produces its efficient faculty in the same manner that fire produces heat. It is by the action of its faculty that every principle is individualized: for every faculty reproducing in its turn its principle, in the same manner that heat produces fire, multiplies the being by a sort of division. It is the efficient faculty which manifesting the principle, causes, for example, the bear not to be inclined in the same fashion as a rabbit; a sparrow hawk as a dove; a rhinocerous as a gazelle. It is by its efficient volitive faculty emanated from its principle that every being conforms exteriorly. The naturalists who have assumed that the tiger was tiger because he had teeth, claws, stomach and intestines, fashioned in a particular way, have spoken thoughtlessly and without understanding. They might have done better by saying, that the tiger had those teeth, claws, stomach and intestines because he was tiger, that is to say, because his efficient volitive faculty constituted him such. It is not the instrument which gives the will, but the will the instrument. The compass no more makes geometry, than the dagger makes the assassin, or the violin the virtuoso. These men can use these things to help themselves but their will must always have precedence over the usage. Moses expresses as usual, the principle of being and its efficient volitive faculty by the words  vya  and  tva  I have given the etymology and the hieroglyphic meaning of both. It is unnecessary for me to repeat. To ask why his translators have not rendered these important expressions, is vain repetition: it is asking on the one hand, why they have not wished to betray the mysteries of the Sepher, knowing them; or, on the other, why not knowing them they have not betrayed them. The Hellenists have distorted the Mosaic phrase in saying here (greek font), male and female, because they knew or ought to have known that  vya  and  tva  never had that signification: but could they do otherwise? Could they expose for destruction all that they had done? Rather than to disclose the true meaning of this expression, or to become ridiculous by continuing to see there man and woman, they preferred to copy the Samaritan which had solved the difficulty in reading (samaritan font) male and female, without concerning themselves whether these words, analogous to the Hebraic words  hbqnw  rkz  were not announced further on as a warning not to confuse them. I have already said that these interpreters preferred to be accused of incoherences and contradictions, than to violate the mysteries of Moses. As to Saint Jerome, he could not deviate on this occasion from the meaning of the Hellenists, without disturbing their version entirely and without inopportunely shedding light on this conscious reticence.”





7.3 Also of the winged of the sky, by seven, the male and the female, to do exist the seed upon all the earth.

7.4 For in this seventh day I give motion, on the earth, to the physical increase of the matter and to the physical increase of life, closed and enveloped in its essence; and I will give birth to the existence, that I have made to my likeness.

[1] The same word in Gen. 2.5, the rain.

[2] The name Night is the feature by with which God, in Gen. 1.5, defines the state of the life, folded and contracted, in its constitutive principles. See Gen. 1.5.

[3] See  also Gen. 6.7; 7.23.

[4] D’Olivét’ note: “  ~Wqyh  standing-plastic-nature. The root  Wq  characterizes in general, indefinite material extent, a thing indeterminate, obtuse, vague. The verb which is formed of it  hWq  expresses the action of stretching, of extending, of being carried toward an object; the action of forming a desire, emitting a sound, etc. The same root  Wq  having assumed the sign of exterior and plastic action, in  ~Wq  signifies as noun, a substance, in general, an extensive thing, a material object; as verb, it presents the action of existing materially, of subsisting, of being clothed with form and substance, of being formed, of coagulating, of rising with force, of opposing, etc. These various significations which, as one can see, have their source in the extent or in the indefinite material substance, of which the root  wq  is the symbol, are united in the word  ~wqy  by the sign of potential manifestation  y  which here adds the sense that I give it of substance or of plastic, substantial nature. This word, however, not being expressible by any analogue, must be considered carefully. The Chaldean paraphrast has preserved it in its integrity; but the Samaritan has deemed proper to change it, and has substituted (samaritan font) which, coming evidently from the root  !wm  or  !ym  signifies that which constitutes the form, the mien of things. The Hellenists in rendering this word by (greek font), resurrection, have had a very singular idea. Saint Jerome has not followed them in this instance; he has translated it simply “substantiam” the substance.”





7.5 And the individual existence was shaped in conformity with IHOAH’s dispositions.

7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.



And he did

7.6 The individual existence was the emanation proportioned and completed for its mutation from one state to another, when the expansion of the matter was upon the earth.

7:6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

7.10 And it was on the seventh of the days, that the matter of the expansion was upon the earth.

7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

7.11 In the becoming of the individual existence, on that day, all the physical springs of the existence were opened; and the multiplying forces of the sky were opened.

7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
