On this episode of the Artifact Podcast, Nachliel and Meir-Simchah dive through the portal of a strange word in the Book of Samuel, meaning 'box'. This leads us to investigate loan words in general, some suprising loan words in the Torah, and ultimately into a discussion of the nature of the language of the Torah.
