The Hebrew Verb in Classical BH Narrative

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the use of the Hebrew verb in classical biblical Hebrew (BH) narrative. It analyses the text of chapters 18 and 19 of the second Book of Kings and the passage about David and Bathsheba in chapters 11 and 12 of the book of Samuel. It aims to determine whether the result of the analyses of these texts are consistent with the findings in Chapter 7 and to provide a better understanding of the role of the Hebrew verbs in the temporal structuring of the biblical text.

Keywords: Hebrew verb; biblical Hebrew; biblical narrative; Book of Kings; Book of Samuel; temporal structuring; biblical text
