Intermediate Reading Group Collation: 1 Sam 1:21-24
- Hi everyone:
Here's the collation for 1 Samuel 1:21-24. I didn't have the
textbook with me when I did my translation, so I may have missed some
of the subtleties (and my below questions may have been addressed
there). I also didn't have time to do the verb analyses, but I hope
to next time.
By all means please do review this collation and post any questions
or comments to the list. Next up: our last four verses from Samuel,
1:25-28. If it's okay with everyone, let's make this due after Yom
Tov -- so how about Wednesday midnight, October 13? After that we'll
be back on a normal schedule.
Anyone may join this group at any time. Just send your assignment in
the body of an email message to hebrewassignments@.... The
subject of the message should be the assigned reading for that week
(e.g., 1 Sam 1:1-5). The translation of *each* verse should start
with your initials followed by the English translation (which may be
as many English sentences as you'd like). Verse numbers should *not*
be included in your translations. Please also type the word END at
the conclusion of your assignment. Anything you don't want included
in the collation should be preceded by a #.
All the best,
