    Default Re: English

    The subject is underlined:

    God gives each believer a task.

    The word 'believer' is not a verb. It's a noun. We know this because we can replace it with another noun:

    God gives each person a task.

    Structure

    God (subject) gives (verb) each (quantifier) believer (noun) a (determiner) task (noun)

    Subject: God
    Verb: gives
    Indirect Object of the Verb: each believer
    Direct Object of the Verb: a task

    The direct object and the indirect object can be switched around, like this,

    God gives a task to each believer.
    God gives each believer a task.
