Bit at a Time Bible Hebrew -- top verbs

Here is a list of the most common verbs in Genesis. They are sorted from least to most common.

If you have bought Bolozky’s 501 Hebrew Verbs, you can learn the conjugations in Biblical Hebrew – they are pretty much the same as in modern Hebrew, which is what the book focuses on. Learn the qal of these 29 verbs – except, learn the piel of “speak” – and the hifil of “come, go” and you will cut way down on how often you need to pull out the dictionary.
