Word Mood
 Infinitive

There are two forms of the infinitive:

    1. Infinitive Construct is used as a verbal noun corresponding to the English verbal noun ending in "-ing"

      1. as subject

        to keep the judgments
        to seek thy heart

      2. as object

        in his "writing"
        he spoke, "saying"

    2. The Infinitive Absolute does not allow prefixes or suffixes

      1. Used with a verb to emphasize the verbal idea. This is often rendered by an English adverb, such as, "surely", "utterly".

        he will surely visit you
        he utterly destroyed the people

      2. It may be used by itself with the value of a finite form of the verb, especially an imperative.
