Wednesday — 5 Iyyar 5766

Preparation:

Read the following chapters from Ellis R. Brotzman, Old Testament Textual Criticism: A Practical Introduction (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker, 1994).

     Read the whole chapter to gain the larger perspective, and then reread in more detail the pages that are identified. You may find the charts particularly useful as you work through these pages. I know there is a lot of information here. One of the things I am wanting you to get a handle on is the process of transmission and in particular the relationship of the Hebrew versions and the Greek versions which is quite complex.

•  2: Transmission of the Old Testament in Hebrew (esp. pp. 42–46, 55–62)

•  3: Ancient Versions of the Old Testament (esp. pp. 72–80)

 

 

What to Bring:

All of the handouts that I have given you regarding Text Criticism; your notes and questions.

 

 

Thursday — 4 May 2006                                                                                                             5766  יוֹם שְׁלִישִׁי –– וׄ אִיָּר

Thursday — 6 Iyyar 5766

Reading:

Read the following chapters from Ellis R. Brotzman, Old Testament Textual Criticism: A Practical Introduction (Grand Rapids, Mich.: Baker, 1994).

•  7:  Principles and Practice of Textual Criticism.  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.

• 8: Textual Commentary on the Book of Ruth.  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.

Thursday — 29 Nisan 5766

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 tri-consonantal root, familiarity with the BDB.

 

The exam will consist of two parts.

     A. Parsing — Worth 25% of the Exam. The first part of the exam is a parsing section in which you will be responsible for parsing 10 out of the 14 verb forms. All of the verb forms will occur in the translation section of the exam.

     B. Parsing — Worth 75% of the Exam. The second part of the exam is a translation section in which you will be responsible for translating into idiomatic English about 9–10 verses from the same passage in the Old Testament. I will provide some 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 tri-consonantal root for a verb expecting you to figure out the form and/or be able to look it up in BDB. 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.

     NOTE. You MAY use your BDB lexicon on all parts of the exam.

 

 

Revision
Suggestions

Here are a few suggestions for revision. Need I add the disclaimer that these are suggestions and do not necessarily imply that these are the only things you might need to work on.

•  For practice with recognizing and parsing weak verbs, I would suggest some of sections of Linda S. Haney’s “Verb Practice,” in particular 15–20 or maybe just 17–20. See here.

•  For translation practice, I would recommend Exodus 6:2–8, Deuteronomy 6:4–9, and Nehemiah 9:9–15, all of which are in your BasicsWB, pp. 297–302.

•  And of course, it is always important to keep up on your vocabulary.

Thursday — 23 Adar 5765

Class Exam 1:

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 and as a pdf.

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

 

C.  Translation — Sight Passages and Jonah 1–2

• 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 1–2.

•  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.

•  I do have HebrewCards and Audio files for these here. In particular look at the card set for Landes 15 because there are ScriptureCards, that is, cards with a verse of Scripture with the given word used in context.

For Monday:

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.

 

And if you haven’t done so already, please send me your exam and paper schedule.

 

Vocabulary:

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.

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

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.
