Painstakingly translating Hebrew

After a summer of hardly looking at the Hebrew Bible, or any other Hebrew text (like vocabulary or verb charts…yea, those would have been a good idea), tackling Joshua 1:1-9 is…well…tough!

After about two hours, I made it through the nine verses for which I’m responsible tomorrow in class. Despite the slowness of my work and having to look up more than a few unfamiliar words, the recognition that my diligence is glorifying God, even as he works incredible patience in me, leaves me peacefully satisfied…and ready for bed!
