Wednesday — 4 May 2005 • Text Criticism 3: Jonah                                                                  Return to Homework Index

Reading:

Handouts

• Baldwin has text crititical comments on both 2:4 and 2:5

• The NET bible has text critical comments on both 2:4 and 2:5 (English 2:3 and 2:4)

• Sasson has text critical comments on 2:5

• Allen has text critical comments on 2:4 (By the way, Allen’s handout discusses the whole of the imbedded psalm and so will be nice preparation for Thursday’s class on Jonah 2.)

 

 

Exercises:

Text Criticism in Jonah

• I want us to look at the more significant variants in Jonah (Jonah 2:4 and 2:5) and make sure that we can construct arguments for both the MT and for the proposed annotations. On Tuesday I will provide you with some handouts of discussions in commentaries on the more significant variants. Please read through these discussions and construct arguments for each position. Because time is short, I do not want us to spend time trying to convince one another about which reading is the best reading. I am more concerned with you being able to construct the best argument for both sides. Only when both sides of the argument are clearly outlined does it make sense to begin choosing which reading is best. Please write your arguments out.

 

BHS Critical Apparatus for Jonah

• There are about 14 entries in the critical apparatus of the BHS for Jonah. Go through each of these and make sure you are able to explain the text critical annotations for each entry. Scott’s A Simiplified Guide to the BHS will give you all of the Latin you need to work through this. I would encourage you to write this out.

 

 

What to Bring:

BHS if you have one.

Wednesday — 27 April 2005 • Text Criticism 3: Principles and Procedures                          Return to Homework Index

Reading:

Handout:  “Principles and Practice of Textual Criticism” from Brotzman, Ellis R. Old Testament Textual Criticism: A Practical Introduction, Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker, 1994.

• This is a fairly short chapter, just ten pages. So read the whole chapter, paying particular attention to the principles that are discussed in the section entitled, Evaluation of Variants on pages 126–129.

 

Handout:  “Textual Commentary on the Book of Ruth” from Brotzman, Ellis R. Old Testament Textual Criticism: A Practical Introduction, Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker, 1994.

• In addition, I would like you to read through Brotzman’s discussions of a handful of the textual variants in the first chapter of Ruth. This will give you some sense of how the principles of textual criticism are applied in specific situations. I will give you pages 133–39 but do not read everything in these pages, just the following variants: 1:1a, 1:1b; 1:14a; 1:19a, 1:19b.

• As you follow the discussions make sure you can decipher the notations in the BHS for each variant.

• I will also provide you with a copy of the first page of Ruth from the BHS.

 

 

What to Bring:

BHS if you have one.

 

 

Thursday — 28 April 2005                                                                                                              Return to Homework Index

Class Exam:

The class exam will focus upon two main areas —translation and parsing of verbal forms, though of course a host of other skills and information will be assessed within these two main areas: ability to figure out the triconsonantal root, familiarity with the BDB. I haven’t yet decided but I think it likely that there will be a few questions on grammar and syntax and certain constructions, e.g., the function of a vav consecutive form or of an infinitive construct preceded by a bound preposition, etc.

 

At this point, I am looking primarily at going with sight passages and providing translation helps for infrequent words or forms, for proper names, etc. The translation helps will not, however, always give you the translation but will provide you with enough information to allow you to apply your knowledge. For example, I might simply give the triconsonantal root for a verb expecting you to figure out the form and/or be able to look it up in the dictionary. I might, for instance, tell you that something is spelled defectively if it is a familiar word that looks foreign because it has lost its vowel letter. As for pronominal suffixes on verbs, I do not plan on glossing every verb form that has a pronominal suffix, even if we haven’t covered it specifically in class, but only those that are particularly confusing because in many cases I think that if you are familiar enough with your strong verb conjugations you will be able to see that a verb form has a pronominal suffix.

Translation:

Hebrew Poetry — Jonah 2:3–10

• We are going to focus upon some aspects of Hebrew poetry with special reference to Jonah 2. So please spend some significant time reviewing Jonah 2; the more familiar you are with the Hebrew of Jonah 2 the more fruitful will be our class. I would encourage you to read through Jonah 2 everyday this week and spend time looking at potential structural and poetic features of Jonah (e.g., parallelism).

Week 7

Since we are having an exam this week, I am not going to introduce any new material. Instead I want to review, revise, and consolidate everything that we have been focusing upon this semester, with most of the attention being paid to the strong verb in all of its stems and conjugations. There is just one week left before Easter break; so let’s hang in there for one more week.

     Look below at Thursday to see the sorts of things I plan on having you do for the exam and some suggestions for review.

Thursday — 24 March 2005                                                                                                           Return to Homework Index

Class Exam:

The class exam will focus upon three areas:

I haven’t designed the exam yet, and so I may make some changes but the following will give you a fairly good idea of what sorts of things will be expected.

 

A.  Parsing and Translation — All Stems (Answer 10 out of 13)

• Be able to parse any strong verb, in any of its stems and in any of its forms.

• In terms of preparation, you can go through the BasicsWB and work through the parsing sections of each of the chapters that we did.

 

B.  Inflection — Qal, Niphal, Piel, Hiphil (Answer 8 out of 10)

• Be able to inflect any strong verb, in any of its stems and in any of its forms.

• This will take two forms. (1) I will you a Hebrew root and ask you to, e.g., form the Hiphil Imperfect 2MS. (2) I will give you an English translation, e.g., I was slaughtered, and ask you to give the Hebrew in the appropriate form. This will involve knowing vocabulary and what the different stems do, e.g., causative and intensive, active and passive, etc.

• In terms of preparation, practice writing out all of the verbal paradigms. Practice sheets are available here. You may also want to go through the BasicsWB and work through the Inflection and perhaps the Hebrew Composition sections of the chapters that we did. Often I had you do the odd and so the even are available for you.

• Based upon what we have done in class, the imperfect seems to be the most difficult, primarily with respect to the vowels, so this would be an area to practice on.

• Here are the two PowerPoint presentations I have used this week to prepare you for inflecting:

                        Consolidating the Perfect and Inflecting the Perfect and the Imperfect

• Also see this website with its flash animations may be of help in terms of inflecting verbs.

 

C.  Translation — Sight Passages and Jonah 1

• Be prepared to translate phrases, sentences, and longer passages. Now while the Parsing and Inflection sections will focus upon strong verbs, the Translation section will include weak verbs as well, those that we have repeatedly come across. You will also remember that we spent a week on weak verbs in the Qal so those are fair game as well.

• Some of what you translate you will have seen before, either in your homework or in Jonah; there will also be some sight passages that you have not seen.

• In terms of preparation, I would spend some time translating. Again, there are plenty of translation exercises available in the BasicsWB that you can use. Also review Jonah 1.

• NOTE: You will be allowed to use your BDB lexicon on the translation section. So make sure you can easily find your way around the BDB. No other materials or lexicons will be allowed.

 

Vocabulary. I would also make sure that you are up to speed with your vocabulary through Week 6.

Evaluation:

Instead of reading, would you spend about 10–15 minutes reflecting upon your progress and evaluating the course thus far. What I am interested in learning from you is your experience of the structure of the course and the types of activities we engage in. I have included some questions to guide your responses but please offer whatever feedback you think most appropriate. Of course you may not have responses to some of these questions, which is fine. But please take this reflection and evaluation seriously by offering me some genuine and concrete feedback because I would like to know what I could do or could stop doing that would facilitate your Hebrew study and acquisition as well as make it more enjoyable.

• What two or three aspects or elements of the course have you found to be most beneficial to your Hebrew acquisition?

• What two or three aspects or elements of the course have you found to be most inhibiting to your Hebrew acquisition?

• What would you like to see more of?

• What would you like to see less of?

• Other feelings, needs, comments and/or suggestions.

 

You can send your evaluation to me via email or hand it to me in writing. You can choose to include your name or not. PLEASE NOTE. I will consider whatever you communicate with me to be of a private nature, and I will not share with anyone else what you have communicated.

Basics — 14. Qal Perfect — Weak Verbs

 

 

Exercises:

Basics — 14a­. Qal Perfect — Weak Verbs

                14b. Qal Perfect — Weak Verbs

• We are going to do something a little different in terms of what sections we do. I want you to be able to focus upon identifying weak verbs in the Qal and becoming familiar with what different weak verbs do. Since weaknesses do not affect translation, I would like you to focus upon the parsing and inflection sections. The following directions are for each workbook chapter, 14a and 14b.

• PARSING SECTION (odd only). When you do this exercise, give all of the parsing information, AND then identify and write out what the weakness is, that is, what changes have been effected by the weakness of the verb. By doing this repeatedly, you will really get a handle on what the weaknesses are doing.

• INFLECTION SECTION. (odd only). My suggestion would be that before you inflect the weak verb you are given that you first inflect a strong verb and then inflect the weak verb. You will then be left with a strong verb and a weak verb side-by-side which will provide visual reinforcement of what the weakness has wrought.

Reading:

Seow — IX and XII

• The following sections from Seow will be handed out in class. 

• The basic chapters are IX and XII. Chapter XII makes references to previous chapters, primarily III and V, and so they have been provided as well for your reference, although if you have the time to work through them, I think it would be well worth your while.

               IX.2 The Suffixed Pronouns

               IX.4 The Object Pronouns

               XII.1 Nouns with Pronominal Suffixes

               XII.2 Forms of the Noun before Suffixes

                      III.1   The Noun: Gender and Number

                      III.2   Changes in Nouns with Endings

                      V.1   Geminate Nouns

                      V.2   Segolate Nouns

 

Basics — 9. Hebrew Pronominal Suffixes

• You might find it useful to read this chapter as a nice overview but it is not necessary.

• One of the major drawbacks regarding their presentation of pronominal suffixes is the order in which they list them in their tables. For some reason, they list the suffixes beginning with the first person instead of the third person which all other Hebrew paradigms in their book follow.
