אֲשֶׁר Strong’s #834 asher

And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

Genesis 1:7


The Hebrew word asher can be translated as the relative participle “which” or “who(m).” It is derived from the parent root shar, meaning a “cord.” A cord is used for attaching one thing to another. The word asher is related to this idea of attaching one part of a sentence to another, such as we see in Genesis 2:8 – the Adam whom he formed.
