11-07-06 / Ground (אדמה adamah, Strong's #127): Because of the reddish color of soil this Hebrew word is derived out of the Hebrew parent root dam [str:1818] meaning blood. Another word derived from this root is adom [str:122] meaning "red" and is also another name for Esau, the son of Jacob (Genesis 25:30). Another related word is adam [str:120] meaning "man," from the blood that runs through his veins but also because adam, the first man, was taken from the adamah and his dam will return to the adamah.
