In a new video from LDS Living, Tammy Uzelac Hall, host of the Sunday on Monday podcast, highlights four important words that have changed the way she studies the Old Testament, and she thinks they can do the same for you.

Watch the video below to see Hall give insights into these four Hebrew words:

  • Elohim (“the gods”)
  • Jehovah, Yahweh (“to become” or “to exist”)
  • Shema (“hearken” and “obey”)
  • Segullah (“valued property”)

“The Old Testament really does apply to every single one of us. And it’s not as hard as we think it is to study,” says Hall. “I have such a testimony of the Old Testament. It’s in the Old Testament that we learn that we are God’s covenant, peculiar, wonderful, treasured people. And I’ve never felt more loved than by reading the Old Testament. And so I hope you join us this year. And I hope you have a great experience studying the Old Testament.”

If you want to learn more Hebrew words to help enhance how you read the Old Testament this year, the Let’s Dig In Journal from the Sunday on Monday podcast might do the trick. The journal features a Hebrew word each week, chosen by Hall, with room to take notes and record your big takeaway as you listen to each podcast episode based on Come, Follow Me.
