Greek like Violin: Day 5 (whew, made it!)

Five days in a row of intensive Greek study down. This is awesome. I loving this. And I’m exhausted. My body is not adjusting quickly to the drastic change in wake-up times. Still, I have nothing to complain about, and everything to rejoice in. I’m learning Greek better which means reading the Word better which means knowing the Lord deeper.

Here was how the first week’s session went down:


0500-0530 Ruth 2:4–10 (Hebrew/LXX)

0530-0600 Romans 3:9–31 (slow deliberate reading)

0600-0620 Hebrew vocab, List I in Watt’s List of Words


Good study morning. Taking tomorrow off. Need a rest!



  1. What is the vocab list for Hebrew you are using?


    1. Hey Darryl, great to see your interest in the languages has not waned in the least!

      It’s called “Lists of Words Occurring Frequently in the Hebrew Bible.” I memorized a good number of them in my Hebrew Grammar classes, but this book is very handy, portable and well organized. It enabled me to toss out those 500+ vocab cards which I kept held together with a rubber band (and were really dirty from overuse). Here’s the link to find it on Amazon, and it’s less than $5. Well worth it!
