Deuteronomy interlinear puns

🏷  Bible text interlinear spook law · text   —   by Gerry · Oct 2020 · 1187 words

The Book of Deuteronomy contains mostly Biblical laws, interspersed with bits of the Biblical storyline. Many of these laws are also repeated in Leviticus. I have only decrypted a small part so far, but it seems that under the hood, they’re all spook laws.

How to read the interlinear puns

Deuteronomy 14

Deuteronomy 14:3

Not not   לא not Notshall you ever trusttkl trust, confide, confident tˀkl   תאכלt will ˀkl eat shall you ever eatanykl all, any kl   כלkl all, any anyof the subjects.tbˁ submit, summoned, follow tˀbˁ servant, subject, subordinate twˁbh   תועבהtˁb abhor, loathed, abomination of the abhorred [animals].

Deuteronomy 14:3

tˀbˁ for “subjects” is Arabic, but the Phoenician spooks must’ve known it. The pan-Semitic root is tbˁ for “demanding”.

Deuteronomy 14:4

Deuteronomy 14:6

The original reads “split the split and split the split in two splits”. This much repetition simply must have a reason, such as underlying punnery. “Split” as abbreviation for “split personality” is a modernism, but similar ones may have existed in ancient times.

Deuteronomy 14:7

Deuteronomy 14:7

Camels do have cloven hooves, making this “cud & hoof” law self-contradictory on top of having no apparent motive. The only explanation are the puns.
