Pneumnemonic Hebrew for Beginners->PHB: Letter families->PHB: dalet - Commandment family דהחך

The meaning of each letter in the Dalet ד or Commandment Family has something to do with the commandment.

Dalet ד

The dalet ד is the commandment.

He ה

The he ה is drawn with a dalet ד as the commandment, then a vav returns halfway up the left side. The response is not a full response because the commandment is not understood. The response is like when sheep hear the shepherd's voice. [1] They are drawn to it, but they do not understand the words.

He means 'aha!' It is the response of recognition. [v 1] [q 1] [v 2]

Chet ח

The chet is drawn like a he ה but the vav on the left returns all the way to the top. This represents that the commandment was understood. The meaning of chet is 'dismay', because when you really understand God's command, you are dismayed. [v 3]

The chet ח symbol represents life in many cultures. They may pronounce it chee. Understanding is represented by seeing. One cannot understand the teaching of Christ unless he has been born again. [2] Understanding is a sign of the beginning of life.

When you draw the vav of the chet say, "understood" or "saw".

Final kof ך

The final kof ך is the form used when a kof כ is at the end of a word. We examined the kof כ when we discussed the nun נ. The nun נ is the Son of Man, and the kof כ is the Son of God; fully God and fully man by nature, as indicated by the long horizontal vav's.

Kof means 'spoon' or 'palm of the hand' and the final form ך represents the Son of God died according to the commandment (which is why it looks like a large dalet). [v 4]
