The word "Gur" is very ancient
The Albanian word "Gur" is found in biblical texts since the time most remote, from 29 centuries ago.
Filologi and various scholars have shown that in most ancient texts of humanity can be found crumbs of words of Albanian origin. I have found some tables bronze dating back to thirty-seven centuries ago in which names are also illiri corresponding antoponomicamente names illiri as "Dasi" and "Gent", etc.. These names illiri reflected in more recent times, but their etymology remained unknown. In the works of Homer grandiose, especially nell'Odissea (verses 500, 501, 507) states also an expression as "Gyraien Petren," which translates as "Gurin and gurte:" (stone stone). Nell'epopea of Homer tells you that the hero of Aiace Oileo after the fall of Troy, browsing by sea, came to an island called Guras Petras. Poseidon, the god of the seas, struck with the trident Aiace and part of sprofondò together with the unfortunate navigator. According to the philologist and patriarch Spiro Konda, the name of that island was Gur, a name that originated long before the Greek navigators. In more recent times, the Greek sailors have called the island under the name Guras Petras, making her a tautology, so this ancient Greek name contains the name illiro even more ancient Gur, traceable to a historical period compared to earlier epopee of Homer. If we accept that Homer has lived in the seventh century BC, then we must say that the word used by Gur Pelasgi and the Illyrians, and that is still in use as a word essential part of the Albanian language, documenting how the word of our oldest language (Albanian) in a monument of humanity as great literary works of Homer. Even in more recent times other authors, for example, the great poet greek Archiloco, is the tautology illiro-Greek in the form Gurai Petras. In 1920 during excavations of Dodona was found a bronze table with the name Guras, proper name of man. This name is as illiro name also in Crete, Kylkade and Tessalia. The historian Arrian old, in his book on Alexander the Great (4.23) says that: during the campaign in India "Alexander the Great crossed a country called Guraioi, which was a river of the same name." Reading carefully the holy Bible we found a single witness almost two centuries oldest texts of Homer, in which there is the word illiro Albanian Gur. The sentence is in the second book of Kings (9.27). There is tells the story of how Ieu made a revolt and killed Acazia, making himself the king of Judea and Israel. I consulted some texts of the Holy Bible in Albanian. In the version printed in Brindisi in 1995 to page 424 reads "Dhe and gjuajtën (Akazian) në të përpjetën and Gurit që është afër Iblehamit." In the version of the Holy Bible printed in Jongloed, in 1993, page 398, reads "pranë vëndit ku rruga është drejt Gurit and kthen për në drejtim të Jiblamit." In the version of the Holy Bible in Albanian published by 'The Albanian Bible Society "in Florence in 1995, page 722, reads:" gjuajtën në të përpjetën and Gurit që është afër Iblemit. " It is interesting to read how the place name Ibleam write in different ways Jiblam or Iblami, while in all these cases, the name of the place called Gur does not change. To further verify the name Gur I checked the translations of bibles in greek and Latin. In both cases this toponino is in the form Gur. In the "Holy Bible", in the "International version", published by the International Bible Society, in 1984 to page 267 the transition is "on the way up to Gur near Ibleam." It "The Bible", "Nouvelle edition revue" Paris, (translated from Hebrew and greek), on page 440 reads "à la montée de Gour près Yivleim." It is clear that in all versions of the Bible written in the languages most commonly spoken is toponino Gur. This is proof that the word Albanian Gur was handed down as name and remained firm on the second book of Kings written in the ninth century BC. Reading the beautiful translation into Albanian Old Testament, made by Don Simon Filipaj published in 1994, a masterpiece of philological Albanian language, on page 448, footnote number 27, gave the explanation geographic place where Ieu killed Acazia. So Ibleam today called Tel Belame and is located south of Jenin, almost ten kilometers south of Israel, the road to Jerusalem. This means that even the place that is called Gur is not very far from the holy city. A fruitful research could be trying to see if the toponino Gur still exists or has been changed. What is important for us is that the Albanian word Albanian Gur we have documented in the biblical texts of 2900 years ago. This is the oldest evidence of a word Albanian used regularly today. This is not a simple discovery and above all there can be any scepticism. My friend Zheji Petro, in his book "Shqipja Dhe Sanskritishtja", published in 1996, is widely Gur of the word and defines one of the oldest words of humanity, a word that is found in many languages in the world, is in Sanskrit in the form Giri or in Latin Gravis (heavy), and in Slavic Gora (mountain), Granica (border), in German Gral (sacred stone) and greek Aguridhe (unripe grapes, hard as stone). Petro Zheji creates equations etimologiche whose root as the word Gur in the name of Gorgona (whose gaze turns everything into stone). He also discovered that the tomb of Timurlen in Sammarcanda called "Gur-i-mire" (stone good). According Zheji, the word Gur is found from the old and distant India to the borders in northern Europe. It is a word used by Pelasgi, have inherited the Illyrians, and is a living word only in a nation of the world: the Albanians. Gur, word monosillaba, is part of the first words of humanity.
It is interesting that the poetic masterpiece of the great Roman poet Lucano (first century AD) "Pharsalia", in Volume VI, where he recounts the historic battle of the city of Durres between Caesar and Pompey, we can read the name of a large rock that today calls "the shkembi Kavajes" (the rock of Kavaja). Lucano says expressly that "the taulant calls Petra." Indeed Petra is the name of ellenizzazione Gur. It is so true that in medieval documents is named the Church of Shen Kollit (Nikolles) later in the Albanian language gave its name to the country "Shkallnur (Shen Kolli the gurit). This means that the fact that the name of this rock, which is located south of the city of Durres, contains the root Gur means that has survived over the years regardless of whether the reporters were Latin or Greek or who had used other words or other names. For this big rock was handed the original name of the times more remote. Even the name of the island of Sazan Island, near Vlora, is related to Latin vulgar "Saso" which means Gur. This means that even in times more remote, the island has always been called Gur. The fact connects the island with that subject Albanian omerico "Guras Petras" which we have already spoken. In conclusion, the word Gur is the oldest linguistic emblem of the Albanian language.
