Love – Hebrew: ahavah

Hebrew –  ahavah  אהבה means ‘love’

The root of ahavah is ahav which means ‘to give.’    The root meaning of love is to give.

Taking that root even further is av or a part of ‘abba’ meaning ‘father.’

In the Hebrew letter pictures,  אהבא

alef – strong, first

hey – behold or reveal

bet – house or family

hey – behold or reveal

–  first or strong revelation of the family behold

Putting it all together, love in Hebrew is the action of giving from a father and is the first revelation of a family
