Dannah’s work on the study of words used to refer to sexuality in the Old Testament was originally inspired by the writing of Malcolm Smith in “Lost Secrets of the New Covenant” where he references the Greek word “Ginosko” which means “to know” and it’s Hebrew equivalent “yada.” From this, Dannah began to study the terms used for “sex” in the Old Testament and has looked at several language tools and commentaries. “Yada” is used to both refer to holy sexuality as in that between Adam and Eve AND to refer to the holy knowing that a man can know with God. It speaks of the emotional and spiritual nature of a relationship. Tools as basic a The Hebrew-Greek Key Word Study Bible by AMG Publishers and The Hebrew English Concordance to the Old Testament by John R Kohlenberger III and James A Swanson are helpful in understanding the full structure of the grammar in Genesis 19:33. The word “lay” was comprised of both the word “sakab” and “et2”. “Sakab” means ” to lie down, rest” or “to sleep wit
