This Supplement is intended to provide a diverse and extensive range of additional practice material for use in mastering the grammatical content of Introducing Biblical Hebrew by Allen P. Ross (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, 2001). It is based upon the writing system, vocabulary, morphology and syntax of Biblical Hebrew as these are presented in Introducing Biblical Hebrew, running parallel to the first 41 chapters of that volume. Chapters 1-6 deal progressively with the introductory issues of writing and pronouncing Hebrew, with practice based upon Genesis 1-2. Three types of exercise accompany the study of vocabulary, morphology and syntax: parsing of isolated forms, with emphasis upon the verb (chapters 10-41); two sections of sentences composed in Hebrew, the first focussed upon the material of the current chapter and the second containing longer sentences drawn from all the material encountered up to that point (chapters 3-41, with isolated phrases initially); and three sections of passages drawn directly from the Hebrew Bible (chapters 9-41) - isolated verses containing salient features of the grammar studied at that point, longer prose passages (Gen 1:1-2:4, 22:1-19, Deut 8-11, Ruth 1-4, Gen 37:12-36), and short poetic passages from the Psalms (Ps 1, 121, 133, 100, 103, 19, 113, 27, 91, 34, 8). Unfamiliar forms and syntax in the OT passages are footnoted, making it possible to read them without recourse to additional language tools. David M. Clemens (PhD, University of Chicago) is a lecturer in Hebrew at Regent College.

Linguistics expert and long-time educator Hackett offers a robust introduction to biblical Hebrew grammar and the Masoretic text. All exercises from Hebrew to English are taken from the Old Testament: those in earlier lessons with slight modification suitable to the experience of the student; those exercises found in the later lessons are taken from the Masoretic test of the Old Testament without modification, but with footnotes to explain unusual or advanced formations. Classroom tested and suitable for self-study as well, this quick-moving one-semester course (30 lessons) features clear, readable explanations, exercises, and examples that provide students with an effective foundation in original language usage. This text-book is also suitable for an entire first-year's study of Biblical Hebrew conducted at a slower place. Course work includes an overview of the history of the Hebrew Bible; deductive lessons on recognition, drawing, and pronunciation of consonants and vowels; memorization and recitation of the alphabet; and proper spelling of words; as well inductive experience in translating biblical passages. Excellent textbook for students who wish to progress beyond using simple reference works and ideal for those who wish to read the Hebrew Bible deeply, widely, and accurately, as well as for any who wish to pursue advanced studies in the Hebrew Scriptures.

Excerpt from Introduction to Biblical Hebrew: Presenting Graduated Instruction in the Language of the Old Testament While the author held the office of Hebrew Tutor in the New College, it was his practice to dictate to the students, from day to day, a few paragraphs presenting in progressive order the general principles of the language. After each of these had been fully ex plained and illustrated by a variety of examples, there was prescribed a written exercise bearing on the subjects treated, and requiring the application of the rules already given. As the results of this plan proved very satisfactory, the writer's esteemed Professor, Dr. A B. Davidson, and others, strongly urged the publication of these notes with the accompanying exercises. Accordingly, an endeavour was made to transmit to writing the detailed explanations and illustra tions which had previously been given in verbal form, and as far as possible to perfect the whole by numbering the leading paragraphs and introducing references throughout, so as to avoid unnecessary repetition. But lack of requisite leisure prevented the speedy aecom plishment of the task, while other literary engagements - including the translation of Ewald's Syntax 1 - subsequently occasioned further delay. In compliance, however, with renewed requests, the work now appears, in the hope that it may serve to promote the earnest and loving study of the language through which God spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets.

Renowned scholar Craig Bartholomew, coauthor of the bestselling textbook The Drama of Scripture (75,000 copies sold), writes in his main area of expertise--hermeneutics--to help seminarians pursue a lifetime of biblical interpretation. Integrating the latest research in theology, philosophy, and biblical studies, this substantive hermeneutics textbook is robustly theological in its approach, takes philosophical hermeneutics seriously, keeps the focus throughout on the actual process of interpreting Scripture, and argues that biblical interpretation should be centered in the context and service of the church--an approach that helps us hear God's address today.

A Guide to Biblical Hebrew Syntax introduces and abridges the syntactical features of the original language of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament. An intermediate-level reference grammar for Biblical Hebrew, it assumes an understanding of elementary phonology and morphology, and it defines and illustrates the fundamental syntactical features of Biblical Hebrew that most intermediate-level readers struggle to master. The volume divides Biblical Hebrew syntax and morphology, into four parts. The first three cover the individual words (nouns, verbs, and particles) with the goal of helping the reader move from morphological and syntactical observations to meaning and significance. The fourth section moves beyond phrase-level phenomena and considers the larger relationships of clauses and sentences. Since publication of the First Edition, research on Biblical Hebrew syntax has substantially evolved. This new edition incorporates these developments through detailed descriptions of grammatical phenomena from a linguistics approach. It retains the labels and terminology used in the First Edition to maintain continuity with the majority of entry-level and more advanced grammars.

The choice of vocabulary and grammar, in this book, is essentially an introduction to the prose, not the poetical language. Generous use of transliteration is meant to serve three purposes: it enables the reader to perceive Hebrew as a language and not an exercise in decipherment, it removes the obstacles to mastering innumerable pages of abstract phonological and orthographic details, and facilitate the memorization of the paradigms.

Lambdin's Introduction to Biblical Hebrew has established itself as a standard textbook in colleges and universities as well as being frequently used by those who wish to teach themselves Biblical Hebrew. The lack of a key to the many exercises in the book has been widely regretted, but this lack is made good with the present publication. Having used Lambdin as a teaching aid for more than ten years, however, Williamson has become aware of some areas in which students still find difficulty. He has therefore supplemented his Key with many further comments and explanations drawn from his teaching experience with the aim of helping readers to a better understanding of both grammar and syntax.

"Elementary Biblical Hebrew: An Introduction to the Language and its History gives students a general overview of the language and focuses on its main characteristics. While many standard textbooks assume that students plan to study the language academically and in-depth, Elementary Biblical Hebrew avoids a heavy-handed academic approach and instead emphasizes the basics of general understanding. Students are exposed to commentaries and word studies that provide a strong linguistic foundation while introducing Biblical Hebrew's primary components. Chapters include strategies and hints for learning the language, as well as activities and exercises that allow for application. Elementary Biblical Hebrew takes an ancient language and places it in an engaging, relevant context to make it come alive. The text is enriched with charts, illustrations, and full-color photography. Elementary Biblical Hebrew is an excellent choice for courses in the language, as well as introductory or survey courses on the Old Testament. Chet Roden holds a Ph.D. in Biblical studies and the Old Testament from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Roden is now an associate professor and chair of the Department of Biblical Studies at Liberty University School of Divinity. His writing has appeared in the Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin, the Midwestern Journal of Theology, and the Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society. In 2015 and 2016, Dr. Roden participated in archaeological field work, excavating water systems and exploring Iron Age gates and fortifications systems, at the Tel Gezer archaeological site in Israel."

Michael V. Fox, long-time professor in the Dept. of Hebrew and Semitic Studies at the University of Wisconsin--Madison, is known both for his scholarship and his teaching. As the editors of this volume in his honor note, the care and sensitivity of his reading of the Hebrew text are well known, and he lavishes equal attention on his own writing, to the benefit of all who read his work, which now includes the first of two volumes in the Anchor Bible commentary on Proverbs (the next volume is in preparation), as well as monographs on wisdom literature in ancient Israel and elsewhere, and many articles. The rigor that he brought to his own work he also inflicted on his students, and they and a number of his colleagues honor him with their contributions to this volume. Contributors include: Menahem Haran, Kelvin G. Friebel, Cynthia L. Miller, Theron Young, Adele Berlin, William P. Brown, James L. Crenshaw, John A. Cook, Robert D.

Available in this one volume edition, the Handbook of Biblical Hebrew is designed to be a complete tool for the student of biblical Hebrew. The book combines reading lessons with grammar, paradigms, and basic vocabulary. LaSor uses the inductive method, studying directly from the text, rather than the conventional method of language study in which beginning students learn the rules of grammar and syntax and memorize vocabulary, often without reading the actual text. The lessons are based on the book of Esther, the complete Hebrew text of which is included in this volume, because it presents little difficulty in textual matters and has an excellent vocabulary. LaSor has also included readings from other portions of the Bible. Field-tested and proven, LaSor's grammar is sure to give students the tools they need as they begin their study of biblical Hebrew.
