Good Ole’ Augustine

I’m taking Old Testament Hebrew I right now at school, and I’m not finding it to be terribly to difficult as I’m staying with it. But I just read a quote by Augustine from his early years as a student studying languages.


“Mastering a foreign language was as bitter as gall, for not one word of it did I understand.”

Maybe that can be a bit of encouragement as one studies things like Hebrew, Greek, and Latin.
