What are the three different sections of the Hebrew Bible?
The Hebrew Bible, or, the Tanakh, as it is most commonly known, is divided into three main sections: the Torah (which contains the Pentateuch or the first five books of what Christians refer to as the Old Testament), the Nevi'im (which refers to historical material found in books such as Samuel and Kings as well as the major and minor prophets), and the Kethuvim (or the writings which contain the rest of the Hebrew Bible with books such as the Psalms, Proverbs, Esther, and Daniel).
How do you differentiate between the different uses for the words affect and effect?
The difference between utilizing the word affect and effect in a sentence has to do with what part of speech the word is. For example, affect is a verb that can relate to different influences on one's life, i.e., the play greatly "affected" me. On the other hand, effect is a noun that pertains to the result of something, for example, saying, the "effect" of too much rain can be flooding.
