One of the great things about the English language is that it is precise. Perhaps no great example is needed than in 2014 the Global Language Monitor estimated there are 1,025,109.8 words in the English language. The number of words are so very helpful when you want to be precise and specific in life. Are you feeling mad or are you agitated, distraught, exasperated, excited, frantic, furious, livid or perhaps resentful? Whatever you are feeling, chances are English has tried to put a specific word to that emotion.
Conversely, the Academy of the Hebrew Language estimates there are 75,000-80,000 words in the Hebrew language. If these estimates are close to true, then that means the Hebrew language has less than 8% of the amount of words in the English language. Can you imagine having to limit your language to just 8% of the words you use?
The limited number of Hebrew words are task with carrying the unlimited ways humans experience the world. The math on this problem requires that Hebrew words are less precise and more open to interpretation than English counterparts. I would say that English words are "light" in that they do not have to carry multiple meanings since there are other words to help. Conversely, Hebrew words are "heavier" since each word carries many more meanings.
All of this setup to ask the question, does the English language with all of her specificity and preciseness actually serve as an impediment when it comes to going "deep" into our spirituality? For instance, in English, how do you know you are in fact "deep". English requires specificity and preciseness in order to know if you are deep. Is deep 2 feet or is deep 100 feet or are you not deep until you are 20,000 leagues under the sea? "Going deep" spiritually is difficult in English because you don't quite know when you are "deep".
Going deep in Hebrew on the other hand is much more vague. The Hebrew language is more experiential and by feel. So you are know you are deep less by how many specific feet you are into the water as you trust a feeling or intuition.
There are a number of examples I can point to but when God has an opportunity to share a specific name to be called, God gives the vague name of "I am" or "I will be what I will be". Perhaps God understands that specific language is helpful in some ways, but it is a bit of an impediment to spiritual formation.
