Word of the Day / Monitin: A story that starts with God's promise to Abraham
Just like today, 'reputation' in ancient Hebrew was closely linked to money and celebrity.
When Israelis talk of one’s reputation they use the word monitin [mo-ni-TEEN]. In today's material world a person's monitin is often determined by how much money they have and what they do with it. But even in its original use, more than 1,500 years ago, the word was closely related to money.
