I have designed two worksheets to help me with my translation work as I prepare sermons each week. They are not flashy, but they get the job done. You can download them below in Excel or PDF format.
When you print them out, set your printer to print on both sides of the paper. I use the bottom of the page to write out my translation after parsing each word in the text. Each worksheet has space for fifty words. I think that will cover nearly every verse in the Bible.
NOTES: I use the bottom of the page to write out my translation after parsing each word in the text. I also make notes in the “translation” box related to grammar (i.e. things like “dative of advantage” and “direct discourse” or “historical present.” the type of pronoun: “personal,” “demonstrative” — things like that). I also make notes in the margins related to things like “the subject of the sentence,” “the main verb,” “adjectives and what word they modify,” etc. The numbers down the left-hand side of the worksheet correspond to the number in the verse.
I am also working on other items that I will share as I get them done.
