[a] Answer *completely* all the analysis questions of Step 2 for these verses and provide your translation in Step 3.  NOTE: I do not require you to do Step 1 as a separate initial step; when you’re going through your analysis, you should be identifying all verbal forms anyway.  Skip Step 4.

[b] Read over my documents (1) Jonah 1.1-3 Gloss and Questions Marshall, (2) Jonah 1.4-5 Gloss and Questions Marshall, and (3) Jonah 1.6-8 Gloss and Questions Marshall and prepare answers to each of the questions. (If Chisholm asks the same question, then you only need to answer it once.)

[c] Please feel free to use the Parsing Sheets I’ve provided in “Restricted Access” and bring those to class as the basis for our discussion of forms and grammar. If you’re not using these, then take notes in your own homework notes (whether hand-written or typed) be sure to parse any forms that you cannot parse by sight.

NOTE WELL: When you’re completing these workbook assignments, you should have several reference works *opened* and being consulted whenever Chisholm references them–Van Pelt/Pratico or Ross (depending on which intro grammar you used–note that I constantly make reference to Ross because that’s the grammar I teach from, so please made adjustments to VPP where applicable), Waltke-O’Connor (WO), Willams’ Hebrew Syntax (edited by Beckman, WHS), van der Merwe (BHRG), and one of the Hebrew lexicons: Holladay, HALOT, or BDB. At this stage in your Hebrew studies, you should be making use of the more advanced grammars like Jouon-Muraoka (JM) and Gesenius-Kautzsch-Cowley (GKC)!
