Where Did the Words ‘Hebrew’, ‘Semitic’ and ‘Aramaic’ Come From?

Hebrew in Hebrew is ‘Eeveriy’ [A hebrew person], letters Ayin, Beit, Resh, Yud [NB. when the letter beit takes a dagesh [a small dot next to it], it is pronounced like a ‘V’]
‘Ever’ means to cross over, so when we call someone a Hebrew it means ‘one who has crossed over. Eber was also the name of a man in the book of Genesis.
Genesis 11
Noah [Bring rest] begat Shem [character, reputation] begat Arphaxad [“healer,” “releaser”] begat Salah [Sent] begat Eber [Cross over].
Abraham was deemed the first Hebrew. He was in the lineag of Eber:
Eber begat Peleg [“division”, half; NB 1 Chronicles 1:19] begat Reu [“Companion”] begat Serug [Branch, intertwined] begat Nahor [“snorting”] begat Terah [ “station”] begat Abram [Father raised], Nahor, and Haran [“mountaineer”]. FYI Haran was father of Lot [Covering].

Crossing Over
This is basically referring to a crossing over from death into life, and is the basis of the covenant Yahovah made with the Hebrew people. A Hebrew is one who crossed over into a covenant relationship with Yahovah.

Semitic and Aramaic
This should be ‘shemetic’ i.e. the word comes from the word ‘Shem’ who is Noahs son.
Genesis 10
Shem begat Elam [Ancient], Asshur [Step], Arphaxad [“healer,” “releaser”; lineage leads to Abraham], Lud [Birth], and Aram [Palace]. Just as Shem is the word is semetic, Aram is in Aramaic.

Genesis 11:1

1And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

4And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

6And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.

Notice there is a pattern here whereby people tried to elevate themselves above Yahovah but he ‘threw’ them back down to the ground. It draws parallels with when the adversary tried to elevate himself above Yahovahs throne and he threw him down to Earth. The Lord said something along the lines of ‘if they can do this then they can do anything’. He knew that they were all united, they all spoke the same language and were an alliance together. Perhaps this is what it was like with the angels in haven, those who were in alliance with the adversary. The Lord thus saw to it that he would separate them for their and mankinds own good. He made it so thy couldnt understand each other, and that way they couldnt align themselves with each other and rebel, sin etc. Imagine if the world had one language right now, with all the inhabitants. There would be so much evil going on, i’m sure evil people would join up with each other and plot to rule the world under their chaotic rules. So babel [confusion] was the only way.
