I'm looking for a resource (Logos, book, web, whatever) which has *lots* of Biblical Hebrew verbs with complete conjugations (at least for extant forms). I specifically mean more than just principal parts. Something like what you can see here, though including other stems would be better:

http://biblicallanguages.files.wordpress.com/2009/05/qal-strong-verb-paradigm-handout.pdf

I see some books on Amazon that look like what I'm interested in, but they seem to be for modern Hebrew; and I can't afford any confusion that might introduce (let alone all the inapplicable verbs).

Why I'm looking for this: I'm in my second semester of Hebrew. In my first semester of Greek, I conjugated by hand lots of Greek verbs according to the paradigms. But in my first semester of Hebrew, I simply didn't have time for that extra work (moving, new pastor position, etc.). So I don't have the forms wired into my brain as well as I'd like to.

What I'd like this resource for is to check my general sense or expectation of a conjugated form of a verb (i.e. as found in a passage) against that resource. Seeing the paradigmatic patterns applied to verbs other than the paradigm verbs really helps me. In case it matters, we're using Garrett's "Modern Grammar for Biblical Hebrew" (the course is taught by Garrett).

Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks much,

Donnie

Thanks, folks. Turns out I have both of those in Logos. I'd really love to have exhaustive verb coverage (i.e. beyond strong / weak verb paradigms), but these are worth looking into further.

Beginning Biblical Hebrew by Mark Futato also has Paradigm Charts:

Introducing Biblical Hebrew by Allen P. Ross does too:
