Note for educators about the intertextual activity on ‘טוב’

 Note for Educators:

N.B. This could also be organized for students by putting each of these passages on a card and writing the translations of ‘tov’ from different English translations on the back of the card. First the students look at the passage and think about it themselves, then turn the card over and see the way ‘tov’ has been translated across different translators. Some examples are:

Translations found in English translation of the Bible

2:9:       good

2:18:     right

6:2        Fair, beautiful

15:15    ripe

16:6      right, appropriate
