Origin of English word PURE

English Word


Edenic Word


Hebrew Word







[BR → PR]




B to P is the most common of bilabial shifts. But because Eurocentrists seek racial purity rather than truth, they trace PURE to the Indo-European “root” peu(e) (to purify, cleanse).  The P word PURE is a Babel-babble (in this case a Bilabial shift) of בר   BHaR (pure – Psalms 24:4 ).  Edenic is the PURE language, SaPHaH ברורה BROORaH, of Zephaniahh 3:9.

Shifting liquids from R to L, we get the opposite, the mixed up ( בלולה BaLOOLaH) languages after Babel – see BALL.  PURIFICATION is often by fire. בער B’[A]hR means to burn (see BURN) as well as to purify by removing or BARING (Deuteronomy 13:6 – see BARE). The bilabial-R of PURE, as in בהיר BaHeeYR (bright – Leviticus 13:4 – see FAIR) is the built-in opposite of bilbial-liquid words like אפל OaPHeL, darkness – see PALL.


נבר   NaBHahR is a pure-hearted man (II Samuel: 22: 27); the S-L opposite of the NaBHaL (villain – see VILE. The obvious “pure” cognates include French pur and Spanish puro. The word FRESH is not linked to PURE, but we can learn much about bilabial shifts beyond linguistic ethnic cleansing. The Western European words for FRESH are frais or fresco. Although also from Latin, Rumanian has already shifted Bilabials to proaspat, a word beginning with our Bilabial-Liquid root meaning pure, (or newly harvested). The German for FRESH is frisch. The Scandinavian words are predictably similar.  The Dutch, however, has shifted to vers.  Between the f,p, and v, we must suspect the Proto-World etymon to be some Bilabial plus R, but why a B.  In this case, the Indonesian provides the strongest clue to an Edenic root, as baru is their word for fresh.  Often, Indonesian can be an Arabic borrowing, but in this case, the Arabic fresh is nothing like the Hebrew DTaReeY (fresh –Judges 15:15) nor like our BR root.  The Arabic, Turkish and Slavic words for fresh are forms of [K]HaDaSH (new).

DTaReeY (fresh) may not recall any current English words (though it may be the opposite of TIRED). In Japanese there is atarashi (new, fresh), and in Finnish tuore is fresh. 

The official cognates of PURE include PURGE (or, a possible M321 of GaRaPH, to sweep away – Judges 5:21), PURIFY, PURITAN and PURITY.   Purity may be associated with youth and fresness as witnessed in the B-R words for “new” in Indonesian (baru) and Basque berri).  In Candoshi de Loreto, a dialect of the Amazonian of Peru,  viiri  means clear ( Fernando Aedo) .     French glass is the crystaline, thus “pure” verre (bilabial shift). Also see the clarity of VERITY at VERIFY. In Irish the Bet shifts to F, as fir is true (clear as in evident), and follus is clear, manifest.

There is no IE “root” for LIMPID (crystal clear), or sources nor cognates for Latin limpidus. Take Bet-Resh, Edenic purity, reverse it, nasalize it with an M, then shift the Resh/R to L.  There is no D in Spanish limpio (pure).


Bible Verses

Psalms 24:4 נקי כפים ובר־לבב אשׁר לא־נשׂא לשׁוא נפשׁי ולא נשׁבע למרמה׃

“He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not taken My name in vain, and hath not sworn deceitfully.”
