And the LORD Yehovah God Elohiym said: “Behold, the man is become as one of Us, to know good and evil; and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever.”
The primitive root
Strong’s H7971 סלח shalach, a primitive root meaning, “to send.” The ancient pictographs are shin + lamed + chet. The Ancient Hebrew Lexicon shows the shin transposed over time from an original sin.
sin ס = the thorn, thus grab, hate, protect
lamed ל = the shepherd’s staff, thus teach, yoke, to, bind
chet ח = the wall, thus outside, divide, half
The story the pictographs are telling is of a sharp point (sin) at the tip of a staff (lamed) like a shoot of a young plant when it breaks through the barrier (chet) of the earth; thus, to send forth, as the seed sends forth its shoot.
