Remember that adjectives must agree in gender and number with the noun they go with: also, for some reason my computer is reversing my Hebrew words and I can't get it to go in the right order
A living king = חי מלך gender: masculine, number: singular
A living woman = חיה אשה gender: feminine, number: plural
Living water = חיים מים gender: masculine, number: plural (water is always expressed as plural, like פנים face(s)
Living daughters = חיות בנות gender: feminine, number: plural
Note how the words rhyme with each other.
חיים masculine plural form is also a masculine noun meaning: life
I think of the song L’chaiEEM from Fiddler on the Roof (which means “To Life!”)
To remember that the first letter is chet, and not khaf, picture the bottle dancers in that musical wearing their top hats! ח looks like the top hat of Abraham Lincoln!
Also, be sure not to confuse this word with: היה, "was", which begins with a hey. The hey ה does not close up at the top left like the chet ח does.
Remember to Make Hebrew Fun!
