Roots

Words like JURIS(PRUDENCE) derive from Latin jusorjuris (right, law).the alleged Indo-European “root” is yewes (law).  ישר YoS(H)eR or JoS(H)eR (right, equity, "uprightness"- IKings9:4) is the only word with the genes to parent jusJuris (swap letters #2 and #3) and yewes (keep the original Y,swapthe same two letters, but pronounce the R as a W)

The equation of "right" means "law" is sharper in Hebrew. "Right" means "in a straight line, " and ישר    YaSHaR is "straight," "even" or" honest" in ISamuel29:6. ישרה YiSHRaH is "integrity" in IKings3:6.  Straight, honest SR synonyms and deviant SR antonyms

May be seen at SWERVE.


Branches

SHOORaH (line, row) and other straight terms may be seen at "SERIES" and SHEER.  The people who are kept in line when they do not act as the keepers of God's JURISPRUDENCE (law) are called YeSHooROON or “Jeshurun” (the Jewish people - Isaiah44:2) or (Y)iSRaEL. Read one way, Israel (YSR + EL) means honest-to-God or "straight to God."

The cognates of JURISDICTION at Indo-European yewes include ADJUDICATE, ABJURE, ADJURE, CONJURE, INJURY, JUDGE, JURAL, JURIST, JURY, JURIDICAL, JUST, PERJURY, and PREJUDICE.

A less crooked path to JUDGE might involve JUDAH. The state of JUDAH's greatest export was Judean law, both in the era of kings and when JEWS (a short form for "Judean") were in exile. JUDAH himself (the son of Jacob) was so famous a judge, that one of the great moments in American literature is drawn from Judah's trials in Genesis38. Just as Judah presides over the adultery trial of Tamar, Nathaniel Hawthorne has Reverend Dimmesdale judging Hester in TheScarletLetter. Both judges are the guilty males in the adultery cases.

Returning to YaSHaR (straight), "all right" is yoroshi and "straight-backed" is ushiro in Japanese. Suora is straight, upright and candid in Finnish. Osoru is order in Igbo (Nigeria).   Spanish JURISPRUDENCE is jurisprudencia, while JURISDICTION is jurisdiccion.


Bible Verses

I Samuel 29:6 ויקרא אכישׁ אל־דוד ויאמר אליו חי־יהוה כי־ישׁר אתה וטוב בעיני צאתך ובאך אתי במחנה כי לא־מצאתי בך רעה מיום באך אלי עד־היום הזה ובעיני הסרנים לא־טוב אתה׃

“Then Achish called David, and said unto him: ‘As the LORD liveth, thou hast been upright, and thy going out and thy coming in with me in the host is good in my sight; for I have not found evil in thee since the day of thy coming unto me unto this day; nevertheless the lords favour thee not.’”

(I Kings 9:4: uprightness, I Samuel 29:6: honest)
