Sphinx V (Word Studies)
In Response To: Sphinx I (Queen Khentkawes) ()

Word studies:
(Strong’s Concordance reference numbers for Hebrew words are in parentheses.)

Balheeb,
Bel/Baal, “Lord” (i.e., a deity)
The Hebrew word heeb suggests, “companion” (and by extension/context, “consort”). The Sphinx was certainly a terrifying companion deity to “Bel (Re)” and the Pyramids.

Biblical Eber/Heber was one that “crossed over”, and was an epithet of Moses, a Biblical type of the sun god Re. Heeb might further relate to the crossing over from life to death and vice versa., with Balheeb then connoting “lord/deity of the beyond/afterlife”, i.e., Aker/Sokar or resurrected Re-Atum.

“UROBORUS: The circular serpent biting its own tail represents eternity and the cycles or ‘circle of life.’ Medieval alchemists linked it to the cyclical processes in nature.
http://www.crossroad.to/Books/symbols1.html

Uroborus can be parsed as “circle (Orb/Urba) of Orus (Horus or the golden sun)”. Urba was the name/epithet of Sargon’s “eldest son”. His name in Hebrew, Arba, means “four” and also is symbolic of the world/earth. The circle is symbolic both of the female/feminine and of eternity/immortality, as well as gold and the sun. (Cf cartouche, chart)
