The Translation Error of New Moon CHODESH MEANING MONTH STRONG’S #2320

The Translation Error of New Moon


The term “New Moon” (yareach chadash) is Not Written anywhere in the Hebrew Scriptures. The Scriptures only use the word “month” (chodesh), which means either “month” or “new month” on the Solar Calendar. 

CHODESH means “Month” and its root word CHADASH which means “New.” They also confused the word YERACH which means “Month,” as in a “Complete Month,” with the word YAREACH which means “Moon,” and this is where the translation error of New Moon came into the various books and bibles, as it was commonly known that the Hebrew people observed the New Moon and kept a New Moon Festival every month.

However, this is not commanded in the Torah, nor is the term “New Moon” ever mentioned in the whole Torah when you look at the original Hebrew text.


35 For I know and from now on will I declare it unto you, and it is not of my own devising; for the book is written before me, and on the heavenly tablets the division of yamim is ordained, lest they forget the feasts of the covenant-brit and walk according to the feasts of the goyim after their error and after their ignorance. 

36 For there will be those who will assuredly make observations of the moon – how it disturbs the seasons and comes in from year to year ten yamim too soon. 

37 For this reason the years will come upon them when they will disturb (the order) and make an abominable (yom) the yom of testimony and an unclean yom a feast yom and they will confound all the yamim, the kadosh with the unclean and the unclean yom with the kadosh; for they will go wrong as to the months and Shabbats and feasts and Jubilees. 

38 For this reason I command and testify to you that you may testify to them; for after your death your children will disturb them, so that they will not make the year three hundred and sixty-four yamim only and for this reason they will go wrong as to the new months and seasons and Shabbats and feasts and they will eat all kinds of blood with all kinds of flesh.

Jubilees (Yovleem) 6:35-38

  1. I see what you are saying here, but without using the moon please tell me how you observe/separate months. And is it not true that the word month is derived from moon? The sun brings in the years perfectly, but without the moon how do you find your months? The moon is clearly used for months, which in turn is how you find the feasts throughout the year.

      The Jewish lunar calendar is essentially created as being canonized by Hillel II between 320-365 CE which is why it is called the Hillel II calendar.

      In 197 BCE Judea became a province Seleucid Empire (the Greeks) which was ruled by the Syrian successors of Alexander the Great. Many Jews weren’t upset over this, in fact they became known as “Hellenistic” Jews because they eagerly wished to embrace everything that the Greek culture had to offer. This results in an intense cultural battle between some of the Hellenistic Jewish leaders and the Temple priests over the calendar.

      The Hellenistic Jews wanted to conform “timekeeping” with the Greek’s lunar calendar while the Zadok priests believed that this calendar was pagan and shouldn’t be mixed with the true worship of YAHUAH ELOHIM.
