Lesson 9: Adjectives and numbers
יְהוָה אֲדֹנֵינוּ (step 3 of 8)
Psalm 8

God’s creation is truly wonderful, as is how he has organized and ordered all things well. Have you wondered at such things today? Does your heart proclaim his name to be אַדִּיר (an adjective meaning “majestic”)? I invite you to do so now as you learn to sing Psalm 8 in Hebrew.
