 for Toroth
From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Torah \To"rah\, Tora \To"ra\, n.; pl. Toroth. [Heb.
     t[=o]r[=a]h.] (Jewish Lit.)
     (a) A law; a precept.
               A considerable body of priestly Toroth. --S. R.
     (b) Divine instruction; revelation.
               Tora, . . . before the time of Malachi, is
               generally used of the revelations of God's will
               made through the prophets.           --T. K.
     (c) The Pentateuch or "Law of Moses."
               The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts: (1)
               The Torah, "Law," or Pentateuch. (2) The Prophets
               (Nevi'im in Hebrew) . . . (3) The Kethubim, or the
               "Writings," generally termed Hagiographa. From the
               first letters of these three parts, the word
               "Tanakh" is derived, and used by Jews as the name
               of their Bible, the Christian Old Testament. --C.
