Lesson 5: Verbs—commands and infinitives
שׂוֹשׂ אָשִׂישׂ (step 7 of 8)
Not rejoicing—greatly rejoicing!

The promises of God truly are fantastic. Being such, they call for our joyful response. Scratch that—they call for our response of exceeding joy! I invite you to keep up your study of Hebrew (and infinitive-absolutes in particular) as you now lift up your heart in great joy to God.
