The Hebrew verb avar means to “pass through,” such as on a road through a region or to “cross over” a river to reach the other side. The proper name Eber is also this same three letter word with the same meaning: “to pass through” or “one who passes through.” The word eevriym (Strongs #5680) is the plural form meaning “Hebrews” and literally means “ones from Eber” or “ones who pass through.” The first person in the Bible identified as a Hebrew is Abram. We read that Abram “passed through the land (avar).” The word eevriyt, not used in the Biblical text, is the language of the eevriym. Genesis 12:6.
