Abstract:

Originally published in 1901 and aimed at students just beginning instruction
in Hebrew, this book addresses the 'many fine shades of meaning' conveyed by
various Hebrew tenses which are difficult to relate in English. Kennett
explains that 'tense' is a misnomer when applied to Hebrew, and examines how
best certain Hebrew phrases might be translated while still getting across
their original meaning. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest
in biblical Hebrew.
