Jaredite noun 1. โ€œHoney-beeโ€ (Ether 2:3)

This entry is not finished


The Book of Mormon supplies its own meaning for this word. Since the JAREDITE relationship with known languages has not been well established, no further comment is possible.

If EGYPTIAN may be appealed to, dลกr.t, โ€œred (land),โ€ the name of Upper EGYPT, of which the symbol was the bee, and the kingโ€™s crown (the dลกr.t-crown) was an elongated beehive shape (and peasant houses were similarly shaped) (HWN, โ€œThere were Jaredites III,โ€ Improvement Era, April 1965). Also, dsrt = โ€œarchaic and ritual designation of the bee was โ€˜DESERETโ€™, a โ€˜word of powerโ€™, too sacred to be entrusted to the vulgar.โ€ (Nibley, World of the Jaredites, p. 187).

Sjodahl, Authenticity of the Book of Mormon, p.11 : Hebrew, asher = โ€œhappiness, blessedness;โ€ and ashur = โ€œone that is happy.โ€
