TGs support reader/learners to learn just what you need to understand each verse.


Best Practices: Sing the verse, read the translation, read the verse, go back and forth looking at the details, until as you sing it you understand what it says in itself. A bit of patient practice will reward you when you can sing it with understanding.

Study intently, use your creativity and earnestness, even reverence, to look at it different ways, and capture it. Also, come back in 15, 60 minutes, and after a day and a week. Then you will know it later.
