The Syntax of the Verb in Classical Hebrew Prose

Syntax of verbs in Hebrew is fraught with problems. According to classic grammars, many Hebrew words can be translated by virtually all the finite tenses of modern languages. Such grammars include lengthy catalogs of special cases and rules for exceptional uses, which illustrate how difficult the problem of verb syntax is. In turn, translators select the equivalent tense of modern languages based more on their own interpretation than on the rules of Hebrew syntax itself. In this landmark study on the syntax of Hebrew verbs, Niccacci reexamines the fundamental linguistic categories of prose and provides a systematic classification of the forms and constructions of Hebrew verbs. A final chapter deals with tense in poetry.

"A masterpiece of contemporary Bible translation and commentary."—Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books of 1999 Acclaimed for its masterful new translation and insightful commentary, The David Story is a fresh, vivid rendition of one of the great works in Western literature. Robert Alter's brilliant translation gives us David, the beautiful, musical hero who slays Goliath and, through his struggles with Saul, advances to the kingship of Israel. But this David is also fully human: an ambitious, calculating man who navigates his life's course with a flawed moral vision. The consequences for him, his family, and his nation are tragic and bloody. Historical personage and full-blooded imagining, David is the creation of a literary artist comparable to the Shakespeare of the history plays.

English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew

English Grammar to Ace Biblical Hebrew enables students of biblical Hebrew to grasp the basic concepts of English grammar that are needed in order to be able to transfer these concepts to biblical Hebrew. One of the biggest problems students encounter learning biblical languages, especially Hebrew, is that they have either forgotten or simply do not know their English grammar. Concepts such as verb tense and voice, relative pronouns, antecedents, adjectival substantives, and the like, sound like familiar terms, but may seem foreign when it's time to put them to practice. With chapters such as, "To Be or Not To Be, that is the Infinitive" and "Pronouns: Grammatical Stunt Doubles," this book is both clever and engaging. All Hebrew students will become better translators--and ultimately better pastors and leaders--with the help of this book. Tips for studying Hebrew, a glossary, and a list of additional Hebrew resources is also provided. This book is a companion to English Grammar to Ace New Testament Greek by Samuel Lamerson.
