This is the second of three courses in Biblical Hebrew. At the end of the course, you should be able to:
  • read Biblical Hebrew aloud fluently and with attention to meaning;
  • correctly analyze the grammatical forms in selected Biblical Hebrew texts (with the help of a grammar and dictionary);
  • correctly demarcate the clauses and sentences in a text;
  • and correctly describe those clauses and sentences.

Required Prerequisites
Bijbels Hebreeuws 1, completed in the academic year 2017-2018 or later (if completed earlier, please approach the course co-ordinator for permission to follow the course)
In Hebrew 2 you will become well acquainted with the Biblical Hebrew verb. The analysis of grammatical forms is central to the first half of the course. In the second half, you will learn to delineate and describe the parts of the Biblical Hebrew clause and sentence and deal with the different types of sentences in Biblical Hebrew. During the classes we will also practice reading aloud. Digital support for this course includes Bijbels Hebreeuws Online.
