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)!
