Future in Hebrew is atid.

  • Future foms can be used with or without personal pronouns. I will pursue can thus be translated as ani erdof or simply erdof.
  • The 2nd person (i.e. you) can also denote the imperative (command form). Thus tirdof can mean you will pursue or pursue!.
  • The prohibitive form (do not!) is always followed by the 2nd person future tense.
  • The 3rd person he will … or they will … can also mean he should … or they should … .
