Moved (redirected) here from Talk:Chokmah (Kabbalah)[edit]

Chokmah is the highest of the sephirot attainable by mortals, King Solomon is the most obvious example in the Hebrew Bible of a man whose wisdom brought him closer to God.

Balderdash [1]. "Chokmah" (why is that word spelled like that, by the way?) is not the highest s'firah attainable by mortals. Let's take a look at Exodus (35:30-31), shall we?

"And Moses said to the Children of Israel: See, God has called by name B'tzalel son of Uri son of Chur from the tribe of Judah. And He (God) has filled him (B'tzalel) with Godly spirit in Chochmah, in T'vunah (Binah), and in Da'at, and in all work.

This is one of the myriad examples of people in the Bible with more than "Chokma".

P.S. Even King Solomon had "Chokmah" and Binah. Let's look at Kings I (3:12):

"... [B]ehold, I have given you a wise (Chochom, indicating "Chokmah) and understanding (Navon, indicating Binah) heart."

Proper letters[edit]

The official, proffesional transliteration rules state the word should b written "Chochma". Also note thta, the linked website below use that form also. I therefor think it would be proper to change this article's name to Chochma - and autoreffaring all links to this name to the proper name. XonoX 01:31, 27 February 2006 (UTC)

Wikipedia:naming conventions (use English)[edit]

The variant spellings above indicates the problems of not simply using English. "Wisdom" is still wisdom when its written in a another language.

As per note on Talk:Chokhmah this should be en.wikipedia not he.wiktionary. Why isn't this article entitled Wisdom in Kabbalah or some other title in accordance with Wikipedia guidelines? cf.
