Default 10 Commandments in English and Hebrew

A friend asked me to engrave some Beech and Red Heart with the 10 Commandments in English and Hebrew. Getting the Hebrew was more difficult than I thought it would be and I hope I got it right. I think the plaque came out nice and Beech is a dream to machine. This is 12" wide by 13" high.

I’m amazed at the detail that a cnc can cut in wood . I’d expect there to be issues like tear out occasionally for some reason . I guess using the right bit helps . They look perfect Dave

David,

There are some Hebrew sites that have a lot of these things in posters, cards, and signs that can be bitmap traced. I also joined the hebrew Bible Society to get advice and ask questions. Don't laugh!!!

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Laugh? I'm impressed! I've seen quite a few of the Hebrew sites but very few that gave me what I wanted in the graphics. So I installed a Hebrew font and the Hebrew keyboard and set about to typing the first Commandment. Hebrew doesn't use many vowels and has other vowel rules in addition to being read right to left, so when I typed, 'Thou shalt have no other gods before me' it came out something like, 'When you go to the river take your goat' or something like that when I put it into Google Translate! LOL!

And I don't know if what I have is completely correct but I know someone who has studied Hebrew for about 8 years so I plan to see if she'll proof this for me.

David, your efforts as well as those of John to get the text correct is honorable. Weighs well against the old adage of " don't get it right just get it written"

David,

My daughter's best friend is a librarian or something like that at a Hebrew center. She knows it rather fluently. I can make contact for you if you need or want.

Don't always believe Google translate. It gives you a good idea but is often wrong or off by a letter or symbol or two.

That would be great, John. Is the image good enough or do I need to send you something better?

You've opened a can of something, David. Beautifully crafted and I'm sure the client will be ecstatic.
Any/every synagogue will have the commandment tablets at the front of the chapel, in Hebrew. I'm pretty sure any Rabbi would be pleased to help you out if you explained what you need.
Is this any help?
