English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word











There is no IE “root” for BET.   ABET is said to come from Old French beter (to harass with dogs).

 To BET is to assert that one is בטח BeTa[K]H (surely, certainly)  right about something.  בטח BoaDTaya[K]H is the verb  “to trust” in Deuteronomy 28:52 . The noun בטח BeDTa[K]H means security in Genesis 34:25.   בטוח BaDTOOa[K]H (confidence), put the dental and bilabial in CONFIDENCE  and FIDELITY. 

The built-in  antonym of this trusting bilabial-dental root is  בדה BaDAh, speaking falsely  – Proverbs 12:18.


Do not BET that DEBTOR and DEBIT are "from Latin de (from) + habere (to have)" rather than from      עבוט [A]hBHOADT (a pledge to repay).    Czech dental-bilabials (reversed) of our Edenic bilabial-dental roots of  BETTING, FAITH and VETTING include duvera  (confidence, trust) and duverny  (confidential).

Germanic words for BET sound like that major pledge and bet we take, called a WEDDING (see WED). The Spanish wedding, boda,  is closer to the original Bet-Tet.

There is German wetten, Dutch wedden, Danish vaedde, Norwegian vedde and Yiddish vetten. Not supposed to be related are Finnish vetoa and Indonesian bertaruh with its nonhistoric Rs.

HYPOTHECATE is from Latin hypotheca (to pledge as security). To link this term with [A]hBHOAT or GHaBHOAT

 is more than HYPOTHETICALl since the Ayin to H change is documented in Genesis31:47  SHaHaDin Aramaic and Hebrew [A]iD or GHaiD both  mean witness. Furthermore, hals (neck in Old Norse and in Dutch RINGHALS) is from [O]aL Or GHoaL (collar – Genesis 27:13): and HEDONISM (Greek hedone means delight) is from [E]DNaH or GHeDNaH (delight – Genesis 18:12).       Ayin/ GH  to H shifts occur in languages as close as Anglo-Saxon, where hr?fen and [O]aRai[V] mean raven, and also occur in languages as exotic as Maidu (California Indians), where hin and [A]YiN mean eye.

At the same time, it is easy to hear HaBHDTa[K]HaH (promise, assurance) in hypotheca.

BUDDY, from British butty, may mean a close friend as in a ב-ט B-DT CONFIDANTE (Rahel Sherman).


Bible Verses

Deuteronomy 28:52 והצר לך בכל־שׁעריך עד רדת חמתיך הגבהת והבצרות אשׁר אתה בטח בהן בכל־ארצך והצר לך בכל־שׁעריך בכל־ארצך אשׁר נתן יהוה אלהיך לך׃

And he shall besiege thee in all thy gates, until thy high and fortified walls come down, wherein thou didst trust, throughout all thy land; and he shall besiege thee in all thy gates throughout all thy land, which the LORD thy God hath given thee.
