  • Biblical Lexicology: Hebrew and Greekby Eberhard Bons; Jan Joosten; Regine Hunziker-Rodewald; Romina Vergari

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 182.00

    Lexicography, together with grammatical studies and textual criticism, forms the basis of biblical exegesis. Recent decades have seen much progress in this field, yet increasing specialization also tends to have the paradoxical effect of turning exegesis into an independent discipline, while leaving lexicography to the experts. The present... more...

  • Colloquial Israeli Hebrewby Nurit Dekel

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    There is no written grammar of Colloquial Israeli Hebrew whatsoever.

  • Modality and the Biblical Hebrew Infinitive Absoluteby Scott N Callaham

    Harrassowitz Verlag 2014; US$ 73.81

    Alongside several related ancient languages, Biblical Hebrew possesses two infinitive forms. The rarer of the two is the infinitive absolute, for which no analogous structure exists in modern translation receptor languages such as English. In studying its use, Hebrew grammarians have long noted that the infinitive absolute often appears in modal contexts.... more...

  • Rejoice, Dear Zion!by Magnar Kartveit

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 119.00

    Discussions about the phrase ?Daughter of Zion? have not come to rest. The present book is a study of this and similar phrases from a linguistic point of view. Genitive as a category in Semitic grammar is treated in a separate chapter, and metaphor and irony are brought into the discussion. The author proposes new understandings and translations... more...

  • Text-Beziehungenby Stefan Seiler; Ruth Scoralick

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2013; US$ 38.79

    Die aus der Literaturwissenschaft stammende intertextuelle Auslegung spielt neuerdings in der exegetischen Forschung eine immer wichtigere Rolle. Dabei werden die vielfältigen Bezüge und Verknüpfungen biblischer Texte untersucht, außerdem wird gefragt, inwieweit sich durch deren "Dialog" neue Sinnhorizonte erschließen. Nach einem forschungsgeschichtlichen... more...

  • Sworn Enemiesby C. A. Strine

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 154.00

    This book explains how Ezekiel uses formulaic language from the exodus origin tradition to craft an identity for the Judahite exiles that refutes an autochthonous origin tradition preferred by the non-exiled Judahites. The book addresses a number of key questions: the relationship between the exodus and patriarchal traditions, Ezekiel?s... more...
