Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Some scholars have proposed that nṯr is etymologically related to the cleansing substance natron, since they can be written (consonantally or using the same hieroglyphic sign) the same way and used together.[2][3][4]

In turn, Strong’s Hebrew dictionary notes that natron in Hebrew is Nether, deriving from the Hebrew Nathar, meaning to agitate, shake, move, unleash, based on the effervescing properties of Natron.[5]
