Hebrew and Latin pronunciations

Hello all,

Does anyone have websites or books you use to look up proper pronunciations for hebrew and Latin words.

I’m used to being spoon fed by gallery of magick for their rituals, when I started reading the Middle Pillar, I was a bit overwhelmed with hebrew words in qabalistic rituals.

I know I can find out one by one on the internet. But, I thought it would be useful if I had one or two places to look up the pronunciation of those magickal words.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

you can probably find good books at a college book store.

I just got this one from amazon. hasnt arrived yet

there are also some basic pronunciation vids on YT


Looks like that one is on Paleo-Hebrew rather than Hebrew.

Thanks @danlBoone but @Dankquanicus might be right :grinning:

when I need to use any psalm Psalms 118 / Hebrew - English Bible / Mechon-Mamre

copy & past and listen the pronunciation here Reverso Context | Translation in context - Arabic, German, Spanish, French, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Chinese, English

sorry, keyboard just broke.


@Hyllion Please complete your introduction by answering the questions I’ve asked.

I haven’t done a lot of workings which involve Hebrew/Latin names but I watched a bunch of YouTube videos on what I was learning about. For example, while learning the lbrp I saw around 5 videos to know how the words are pronounced, slow down the video and learn them that way.

That’s a great idea. Cheers! :slightly_smiling_face:

Usually, for hebrew I’d just do my best.
For latin, I tried for a long time to do oldschool (roman) pronunciation like was taught in school. After I started exploring christian spirituality, I had to modernize my latin a little bit.

If the latin is modern, flow with it and go a little softer on the consonants and certain vowels.
Instead of a hard ‘k’ sound with a c, I’d feel the word around a little bit to see which was best. When in doubt, I’d look up the pronunciation.


Cheers @DormiensDei. Appreciate it mate.

sorry for the delay, my keyboard was broken. I will try to finish as fast as I can
