    I have wondered the answer to this question. Will it be Hebrew? English? Or will we speak our own native language and God will translate it so others can understand?

    I suspect that no translation will be necessary.

    There is no way to know the answer to this question. For starters, it assumes we will be speaking in Heaven.

    According to Dr. M. James Hollowood late professor of Biblical Languages at MBBC, Hebrew. At least that's what he told his Hebrew students.

    We will speak Bararish. :)

    Zephaniah 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent.

    Pure - Hebrew : barar.
    Brown, Driver, Briggs; And The Theological Wordbook of the OT :Barar Purge.

    We won't speak? How will we communicate?
