[SH-BH-T → SPT]
A SEPT is an "old Irish clan or tribe
ruled by a patriarch" or any similar group. The term is linked to Old
French septe and is guessed to be a variant of "sect." שבט SHeyBHeDT is a
"tribe" (Numbers24:2) or a branch. See
SWITCH and SCEPTER for שבט SHeyBHeDT as a rod.
The SWAT people of East India may be named for a lost cognate of SEPT. The verb SWAT is similar for good
reason see SWITCH. SIBLING, SIB and GOSSIP are from Old English
sibb (relative). The Indo-European root is s(w)e, third person prounoun,
thus we. Ssibb and SIBLING are clipped forms of SHeyBHeDT.
The S-B is shifted to S-P in German Sippe (tribe, relations, family,
…clan or clique).
Numbers 24:2 ו ישׂא בלעם את־עיניו וירא את־ישׂראל שׁכן לשׁבטיו ותהי עליו רוח אלהים׃
And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel dwelling tribe by tribe; and the spirit of God came upon him.
