In the last days we completed the translation of the main text of the central rosette (foldout pages 85r-86v). Our expectations regarding the content have been fully satisfied and the terminology used in this text is adequate. Meanwhile we don’t have doubts about the kabbalistic nature of the script. Our refined alphabet proved to be sufficient accurate, so we intend to translate further parts of the text and publish them from time to time on our site: https://enspace.net
There are some alphabets published on the internet, which map Voynich glyphs into phonemes or letters of different languages, but as I know, these alphabets resulted into translation of a few words at most. With our alphabet we were able so far to translate every text in the VMS we tried to translate, so we think it’s applicable to the whole script.

There were 2-3 posts about our papers in other forums. Neither of them was inspiring nor inspired. However, we realized that already the assignment of the glyphs to the abjad letters (we omit the Aramaic letters and use the Latin letters in the transcription instead) can be misread. It’s not that we couldn’t improve our documents.
Indeed, we didn’t show the assignments of the Voynich glyphs in pictures. I was thinking this would be obvious using the alphabet table. We will include pictures like this below in our next papers for more convenience. The beginning of the second part of the central text after the first bracket sign would be then (with the special acronym 89 for YHWH):

‘az ‘achar ella‘ (awz-akh-ar‘-ale-law‘)
YHWH lebab (yahwe-lay-bawb')
YHWH guwphah (yahwe-goo-faw')
‘owlel taba (o-lale‘-taw-baw‘)

Here is a short reprise, how we started to evolve our alphabet. First assignments we made were the short names around the central image. We assumed them to be the 12 tribe names of Israel and 7 Yahweh praise words. Well, they were too short to contain vowels, so we tried it with abjad. One word occurs 3x here, 1x as part of a longer word (picture below). We assumed this word to be Yudah, we found a very similar Aramaic word yeda' (yed-aw') which means to paise, give thanks and which would be identically written in abjad. And then, I remembered that the Jews from Sechem who worshiped Baal, were called the El Berith or Babbrit (God of the Covenant) Yudah. Here we would miss one t or th, but maybe the author wanted to express his displeasure with them as bera’ without t means (son of evil) and they were considered as apostates – an intimate would understand and this text, in our opinion, was not written for a wide audience.

In this way we came to our first assumption about 5 glyphs. The idea to use 7 letters ‘double’ came later as we realized, that it would be not enough letters available, when we use some special letters only at the beginning or as second-last letter of a word. And the advice to consider 7 letters as ‘double used’ comes from the Book of Formation the oldest Jewish mystic writ. Before we started to decode the main text, we successfully mapped all short words from the central page of the foldout and 3 dozen other words from different pages. All were adequate and fit perfectly into the context.

Most references we made in our papers are those to well-known stories from Old Testament (the Hebrew Bible). The dictionaries and lexicons we used are available under:
Bible Hub: Search, Read, Study the Bibl ... Languages
Hebrew Dictionary of the Old Testament ... rdance.com

And this one contains the meanings of biblical names etc.:
Free online encyclopedia of Biblical na ... tions.com)

From there we have our transcriptions, translations and the specified pronunciation, which we consider essential for the decryption (an example: written word ending -h or simply an auslaut a’/e’ but seemingly pronounced likewise w - like in west – is a prevalent word ending in Aramaic and therefore the frequent occurrence of the glyph o at the end of words).
We are convinced, that this script is of Jewish mystical nature, so we can only recommend to read some of the standards like Sefer Yetzirah or Schir ha-Schirim (the Song of the Songs). The garden and herbal motifs in the second remind sometimes a bit of the plants in VMS, despite that concrete, real existing plants are mentioned there.

I hope this explains a bit. Now we are going to decrypt the text of the next rosettes. The cycle begins with the middle rosette to the right.

The text speaks out what the image shows: trees and grass burn and the small loops with a blue dot inside are souls. The text says: all souls united. The earth apparently burns while the souls gather in expectancy of the Judgment Day.
We will publish further translations in a few weeks.

Sorry, the URLs don't work! Are to long? Try to google for these dictionaries.

Hi Stellar: The links you posted were not too long, they were parsed incorrectly: They directed back to the Voynich net instead of to the host URLs. But I do see where you intended them to go, so I'll post them here for you:

Bible Hub: Search, Read, Study the Bible in Many Languages

Hebrew Dictionary of the Old Testament Online

Free Online Encyclopedia of Biblical Names

Thanks a lot, Rich. I should have tested them in my post before submitting...
