Hebrew Question
« on: May 06, 2020, 04:52:29 PM »
I want to translate victorious cross or triumphant cross into Hebrew.

A quick search in Google Translate gives me צלב מנצח. This should be tzlv mntzch but I don't know how the vowels go in there. I recognize tzlv as a cognate of the Arabic salib.

Furthermore, this is modern Hebrew. Does anyone know how to translate it both into Modern and Biblical Hebrew?

Thank you in advance.

Since the word doesn't occur in the OT, it's hard to know for sure. I found צְלָב, which makes sense given that the Syriac (and presumably other Aramaic forms) is ṣleeba. It's Modern Hebrew, but the word is unlikely to be different; Modern Hebrew generally differs more in grammar than spelling. Checking rabbinic works would be the only way to be sure, but most of that is Aramaic anyway. I have an exceptionally knowledgeable Israeli friend I can ask.
[*I realize that I haven't mentioned it, but in the interest of transparency if I engage in a discussion, I joined the Orthodox Church toward the end of last year.*]

How awe-inspiring is your childbearing, O immaculate one, by which we have all been delivered from the terrible Fall! We cry aloud: Rejoice, O intercessor for all men! Rejoice, O restoration of the fallen world!
