- Adjectives An adjective is a word that modifies a noun or a pronoun by limiting its meaning. Types of adjectives include possessive pronouns, possessive nouns, articles and proper adjectives. ************** Based on the explanation above, identify all the adjectives in the phrases below, dragging them and dropping them into the right collum. If a word is repeated, count it only once. *********** Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength. The messengers rode the king’s fastest horses. This is the same Moses who told the Israelites, ‘God will send you a prophet, an Israelite like me.’ Discipline and teachings are a graceful garland on your head and a golden chain around your neck.
- Considering the following text, from ISBE (International Standard Bible Encyclopedia), drag the words that name persons, places, things or ideas to their proper columns. In the column called 'None', put the words that belong to none of the other columns. Disregard references to Bible verses. "When jealousy is attributed to God, the word is used in a good sense. The language is, of course, anthropomorphic; and it is based upon the feeling in a husband of exclusive right in his wife. God is conceived as having wedded Israel to Himself, and as claiming, therefore, exclusive devotion. Disloyalty on the part of Israel is represented as adultery, and as provoking God to jealousy. See, e.g., #De 32:16,21; 1Ki 14:22; #Ps 78:58; Eze 8:3; 16:38,42; 23:25; 36:5; 38:19."
- What is it, the part underline in this prhase? Ge 19:18 - Lot answered, "Oh no!" If you think is difficulty, see three hints by cliking in the "little cloud" above. You have three lives.
- Preposition is a word that shows the relationship of a noun or a pronoun to some other word in a sentence. In the text below, from John 17:15-23, put back the prepositions to their correct positions.
- An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb by making its meaning more especific. Based on the above definition, check all the sentences below that contain an adverb.
- Listen to the audio as many as you wish, then drag to the right-column only the words that are synonymies for any word you heard on the record.
- Listen to the audio clip at will; then, compose the Bible verse in blank spaces below by dragging the correct words to the correct positions.
- Listen to the record above as many times as necessary. Then, choose the right transcription below, for the first part only of what you heard.
- Listen to the audio as much as you want, then write below the word that was replaced by other in the transcription below.
