'Prophets (Nevi'im)' in Hebrew

The Hebrew Bible is called the "Tanach" (תָּנָ"ך), which is an abbreviation for its three sections: The first section--the "ת"--is the תּוֹרָה (Torah), which in this case refers to the first five books. This section is also called the "חוּמָּשׁ" (Khoo-MAHSH). The second section--the "נ"--is the נְבִיאִים (nə-vee-EEM) (Prophets). The third section--the "ך"--is the כְּתוּבִים (kə-too-VEEM) (Writings). (Note that in the abbreviation, there is a final ך because it is the final letter of the abbreviation, even though the word "כְּתוּבִים" begins with a regular כּ).
