Are you looking for ways to hone your skills in biblical Hebrew? One of the best ways to do that is to read texts written in the Hebrew of the talmudim, midrashim, piyyut, and miqraot gedolot, and the Hebrew of medieval and modern poets like Dunash ben Labrat, Bialik, and Amichai. Sages, scholars, and poets draw on the linguistic resources and fund of metaphors Hebrew offers them in the age they write. They often drink from the well of biblical Hebrew. Figuring out the biblical sources of the diction and concepts a later Hebrew author adopts is a great exercise.
