Good morning. I believe I understand the whole sentence, but I'd like to verify my translation of what I believe to be an adjectival form which is typical of modern Hebrew. It's just that this is the first time I've seen two adjectives written in such a manner. The adjective in question is הַמֵּאִיר.


הָאוֹר הָאֲמִתִּי,הַמֵּאִיר לְכָל אָדָם, בָּא אֶל הָעוֹלָם



My translation would be: The true light, which gives light to every man, came (or, has come) to the world.

I believe הַמֵּאִיר, in this context, means light-giving.
Am I right? Thank you for any help you can give a struggling student of Hebrew.

Michal, thank you very much for your timely and informative response. I'm sorry I took so long to reply, but I had to step out for awhile.

Can הַכֹּל also refer to people, so that you could translate, "because of his words, they will all believe?

Good morning. The text below is taken from the New Testament in Modern Hebrew.


.אִישׁ הָיָה שָׁלוּחַ מֵאֵת אֱלֹהִים וּשְׁמוֹ יוֹחָנָן. הוּא בָּא לְעֵדוּת, לְהָעִיד עַל הָאוֹר כְּדֵי שֶׁעַל־פִּיו יַאֲמִינוּ הַכֹּל


I understand everything except שֶׁעַל־פִּיו.
Any help you give me will be much appreciated.
