Or what provokes you that you answer? {4} I also could speak as you do, If your soul [body] were in my soul's [body�s] place, I could heap up words against you, And shake my head at you; {5} But I would strengthen you with my mouth, And the comfort of my lips would relieve your grief.

Another sign that Alma depends on Hebrews is in the former's lack of certain problematic formulations found in Hebrews. It argues that this criticism is based on two important methodological problems: the problem that observations and tests statements are fallible and impregnated with theory, and the problem of how to test complex theoretical systems. But in fact this dispute over the Bible is only the latest incarnation of a very old debate—one that traces back centuries in Jewish thought and goes to the heart of Jewish self-definition and belief. “The eighth fundamental principle [of faith] is that the Torah came from God,” wrote Maimonides over 800 years ago in his classic exposition of the 13 tenets of Jewish belief. “We are to believe that the whole Torah was given us through Moses our teacher entirely from God.” In the next principle, he elaborated: “The ninth fundamental principle is the authenticity of the Torah, i.e., that this Torah was precisely transcribed from God and no one else.” Few thinkers match Maimonides ’ intellectual stature in Jewish tradition, and his principles of faith are generally considered canonical.

Your first passage, for example, might detail the descriptive words in the opening scene of the novel, where the main character�s sexual abuse is described; and you might choose another passage or two that describe positive interactions the main character has with males in her life.
