And out of the ground the LORD God Yehovah Elohiym formed every beast of the field, and every winged creature of the air; and brought them to the man to see what he would call them. And whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name. Gen 2:19
The primitive root
Strong’s H935 בוא bo, a primitive root meaning, “to go, to come in, to enter.” The ancient pictographs are bet + vav + aleph.
bet ב = the house, thus house, household, family, in, within
vav ו = the tent peg, thus add, secure, hook
aleph א = the ox head, thus strength, power, leader
The story being told is of space within (bet) leaving a vacuum, so that what comes next (vav) has the power (aleph) to fill it.
“[Bo is] a generic verb with a wide application meaning to come or go as a filling of a void.”
