IDENTIFYING

PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES

(In the Bible)

  

Here is a section out of Psalms 24:36.  You could type this up, or it could be handwritten by a younger or older student, or typed up by your teen for typing practice. The way this came about was that as I was reading these verses one day, it became obvious to me that there was one prepositional phrase after another! So I thought, "Hmmm, this would make a good quick lesson on this topic!" Directions are coming right up, and the "answer key" is below.

  

DIRECTIONS:  Underline all prepositional phrases. Draw a line from the phrase to the word it modifies and indicate whether it is a "prepositional adverbial phrase" (modifies a verb) by writing just "Adv." over the phrase; or a "prepositional adjectival phrase" (modifies a noun) by writing "Adj." over it.

A Psalm of David

  

A Song to the King of glory

  

3 Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord?

  

And who shall stand in his holy place?

    

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart,

  

who does not lift up his soul to falsehood,

  

and does not swear deceitfully.

  

5 He will receive blessing from the Lord,

  

and vindication from the God of his salvation.

  

6 Such is the generation of those who seek him,

  

who seek the face of the God of Jacob. Selah
