Upper School Highlight from Mrs. Stephanie Hamblen
This week in Latin, we addressed MOOD! No, not our own moods, but the mood of the verbs in sentences. It was interesting to move from the indicative mood of the verb which can be a little plain to the imperative mood of the verb which can seem important and urgent! We had a guest teacher for this lesson, and he was able to show us quite a few imperatives from the Latin Vulgate, the Latin translation of the Bible. I'll leave you with a few examples to see if you can point out the imperative verb and translate some of the verses. You should check your answers with one of our Logic students!
Honora patrem tuum et matrem tuam… (Exodus 20:12)
Gaudete in Domino semper iterum dico gaudete. (Philippians 4:4)
Propterea accipite armaturam Dei… (Ephesians 6:13)
Venite ad me omnes qui laboratis et onerati estis et ego reficiam vos. (Matthew 11:28)
