What is the 108 word in Genesis? I have tried to count the Hebrew text but I'm not sure. My name Lynette according to the aleph bet totals a sum of 108. I am trying to find the 108 word in Genesis so that I can see what the word is

  • I am not making this an answer because I am not sure if I am right, but I came up with "hamayim" (the water) in Gen 1:10.

    Just so you know, the only way I can think of that "Lynette" comes to 108 is if the "tt" is transliterated "טט". But that's not how it'd be transliterated in Hebrew -- Hebrew doesn't use doubled letters the way English does. (That said, another language written in Hebrew characters may.)

It's ולמקוה, ulmikve, "and to the collection of", in verse 10. Source: my local copy.

(This counts words connected by a maqaf as two words, as usual.)

  • Did you count by hand?
