English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word







[H-S( H)-S(H)]


dry grass, chaff, hay


Political ASSASS(INS) and drugged up killers were common to the Middle East long before Anwar Sadat and Lebanese car bombs. ASSASSINS and their supplemental source of inspir­ation,  HASHISH, are officially borrowed from the Arabic term hashish (dried hemp, grass).

חשש [K]HaSHaSH means dry grass, chaff or hay. Isaiah5:24 : “'Assuredly, as straw is consumed by a tongue of fire and hay, חשש [K]HaSHaSH. shrivels as it burns . . ."

עשב   GHaiSeBH is a generic term for all grasses, herbs or vegetation (Genesis 1:11).


The "straw" of the above verse is QaSH, a harder sound and feel than hay or  [K]HaSHaSH. QaSHeH ishard;  The end-Bhet of GHaiSeBH (grass etc.) is often dropped..

KASHA or KASZA is a Russian and Polish dish of hulled, crushed, coarse buckwheat that they still feed to humans. Kusa is grass in Japanese. The Japanese word for “plant, vegetation” appears to be an M213  metathesis of GHaISeBH: shokubutsu.    CASSAVA, starchy plant food, is from Haitian kasabi. HASSOCK is from Anglo-Saxon hass (coarse grass). COHOSH is an herb named by the Algonquian Indians. Reverse K-S for other hay words like SACATON or ZACATON (from Aztec). HASH might resemble a clump of hay or [K] HaSH(aSH). HASH is currently linked to the Indo-European rot skep (to cut, scrape, hack).    The name Wisconcin is said to mean “grassy place” in Chppewa/Amerind.  Oiskonsin may be from SHaM (there – the cin element) plus GHaySeBH (grass --- reversing the wisc element). For a Japanese [A]iSeBH, see bonsai at PENETRATE.

Bible Verses

Isaiah 5:24 לכן כאכל קשׁ לשׁון אשׁ וחשׁשׁ להבה ירפה שׁרשׁם כמק יהיה ופרחם כאבק יעלה כי מאסו את תורת יהוה צבאות ואת אמרת קדושׁ־ישׂראל נאצו׃

“Therefore as the tongue of fire devoureth the stubble, and as the chaff is consumed in the flame, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and contemned the word of the Holy One of Israel.
