A Psalm of David (Black)
My textbook is my guide, I am never in need.
It makes me learn the conjugations.
It leads me beside the declensions.
It restores my confidence in grammar.
It guides me along the paths of exegesis
For its publisher's sake.
Even though I face the scourge of participles
I will fear no evil,
For you are with me.
Your appendices and charts,
They comfort me.
You prepare an answer for me in the presence of my teachers.
You anoint my mind with wisdom.
My soul bursts with pleasure.
Surely my textbook will follow me
All the days of my life,
And I will remain a Greek student forever.
