    Default Re: adverb , verb, adjective

    1. Mary poured expensive ointment (on Jesus. head.) verb
    No- the verb is 'poured'. 'On Jesus' head' is an adverbial.

    2. we are told (in the bible of mary's generosity. Adverb
    There are two things here 'in the bible', which is an adverbial and 'of Mary's generosity'

    3. (Are) we weary traverlers( resting) at the well? adjective
    It's a verb here- we are resting

    4. the blessing (of God) was on Samuel.. adverb
    'On Samuel' would be the adverbial here.
