Ruth 1:1a

Here is my first video.  I work through the first half of Ruth 1:1a, discussing primarily morphology.  As I grow in my understanding and skill in doing this, I’m hoping my videos will be more efficient.  Happy study!

  1. Grammatically, could it be either in the days of the judges’ judging or in the days of the judging of the judges (ie the judges being judged) – like subjective or objective genitive – to be determined by context?


    1. The construction generally indicates the “judges’ judging” meaning. I’d expect another construction for the second meaning. I’m currently on vacation, so the construction is escaping me. 🙂
