Practise parsing biblical Hebrew verbs with Parse It

Find biblical Hebrew difficult to learn? A key way to master a new language is to master verbs and biblical Hebrew is no different. Mastery comes from practice and that's where Parse It comes to the rescue!

Parse It helps you to practise Hebrew by giving you verbs to parse. Tap the screen to check you parsed correctly, then tap again for a new verb. Simple!

Stuck on a verb and need a hint? Tap any verb and Parse It will highlight the root consonants for you. Neat!

• Turn on and off individual stems, conjugations and verb types, so only practise what you've been taught or want to focus on.
• Highlight root consonants.
• All major stems, including: Qal, Niphal, Piel, Pual, Hiphil, Hophal, Hithpael and more…
• Conjugations include: perfect (suffix), imperfect (prefix), imperative, cohortative, infinitives (absolute and construct) and participles (active and passive).
• Strong and weak verb paradigms, including: I-guttural (aleph, ayin, he, het, resh), I-yod, I-nun, II-guttural, III-guttural, biconsonantal (hollow/middle weak) and geminate.
• Large collection of common verbs.

In response to janhenley

I am a personal friend of the developer and I am sorry to hear from janhenley that the user’s experience has been negative.

It seems to me that janhenley has misunderstood the purpose of the app. The app is for practicing how to parse Hebrew verbs (by quizing the user on random verbs from different stems) rather than providing alternative forms of any given verb input by the user. I believe the app information page is quite clear on that.

I am sorry to hear about the inability to contact the developer and I will try to get in touch with him to ensure janhenley will receive a reply. The developer has been very unwell and has only recovered until recently. I am sure he will be in touch as soon as he can.

The developer created this app when he was a student from Oak Hill College student, and the app has received endorsement from the Hebrew lecturer back then. I have no idea whether that is still the situation now, but I know back then the Oak Hill College Faculty was supportive of this app.

I hope this clarifies the situation.

This app is useless

I downloaded this app thinking as the info suggests that I could have help parsing Hebrew verbs. It turns out to be a random list of verbs that you could find easily in any hebrew grammar text book. You can’t input a verb to parse it’s totally useless and for the price of £4.99 it’s quite frankly a rip off. I tried to get a refund from the guy who wrote the app and there is no response at all. Do not buy this app this is better free stuff out there. I can’t think why anyone would want to buy it. It also seems to use oak hill college to validate its worth but they know nothing about it. I wouldn’t even give it one star but I can’t post a review without it

Parse It

Good app for practice at parsing the Hebrew but crucially doesn't tell you what the verb is in English! This is a real weakness and very disappointing. This simple addition would make a huge difference.
