This year I’m teaching Advanced Hebrew here at Houston Baptist University on MWF (1:00 – 1:50pm). The focus is on Hebrew poetry, with texts from Proverbs 1-9. Here are some links to the materials that we’re using for the course.
Syllabus: Get it on the Blackboard course management system homepage for this course.
Hebrew Cross Reference – May 2009 [This is a cross-reference guide keyed to Williams’ Hebrew Syntax edited by Beckman, which takes you to the advanced Hebrew reference grammars for their discussion of each section/paragraph of syntax.]

COURSE ASSIGNMENTS: Note that the assignments are set up with the earliest assignments at the bottom of the page, and the most recent ones at the top.
Due Mon, Wed, & Fri, Sept 17, 19, & 21:
MON:  Prepare Prov 1:2-7.  Read appropriate sections of Waltke’s Proverbs commentary.

FRI:  Prepare Prov 1:13-19.  Read appropriate sections of Waltke’s Proverbs commentary.
NOTE WELL: When you’re completing your preparations of these passages, you should have several reference works *opened* and being consulted: 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. If you have any of the other grammars (Jouon, GKC, Arnold/Choi), by all means use them!
