Die Handschriften aus Qumran und weiteren Fundorten bieten einen einzigartigen Einblick in das Hebräische und Aramäische der Zeit des Zweiten Tempels. Das philologische Wörterbuch erschließt in der Tradition der kritischen Lexikographie antiker Texte erstmals umfassend den nichtbiblischen Wortschatz dieser Quellen (neben den Texten vom Toten Meer auch Geniza-Manuskripte), und ordnet ihn in die hebräische bzw. aramäische Sprachgeschichte ein.

English summary: Sacrifice terminology in the psalms differs substantially from that in the priestly texts and in prophetic cult criticism. The meaning of sacrifice derived from these makes it clear that the psalms go their own way in their perception and interpretation of sacrifice. The reason for the new definition of sacrifice was the templeless era during the Babylonian exile and the unchanged diaspora situation with the Second Temple as a new religious centre. This made it necessary to redefine the relationship between the cult of material sacrifice, prayer and praising God. The psalm poets were not searching for an alternative to the official cult of the Second Temple, even if a certain distance to this was apparent. The fact that the authors of the psalms remained a part of the official cult and set their own priorities is expressed in the psalms by the preference given to offerings of thanks or votive offering as well as by the particular emphasis on the offering of praise to God and the personal relationship between the individual and God in the form of spiritualized sacrifices. German description: Die Opferterminologie im Psalter unterscheidet sich zum Teil wesentlich von der des priesterlichen Schrifttums und der prophetischen Opferkritik. Das sich daraus ableitende Opferverstandnis macht deutlich, dass die Psalmen in Bezug auf Wahrnehmung und Deutung von Opfern ihren eigenen Weg gehen. Anlass fur diese Neudefinition des Opferbegriffs sind die tempellose Zeit wahrend des Exils sowie die bleibende Diasporasituation mit dem Zweiten Tempel als neuem geistlichen Zentrum, aufgrund dessen eine neue Verhaltnisbestimmung zwischen materiellem Opferkult, Gebet und Gotteslob notwendig geworden war. Intention der Psalmdichter war nicht die Suche nach einer Alternative zum offiziellen Grosskult des Zweiten Tempels, auch wenn sich eine gewisse Distanz zu diesem konstatieren lasst. Das Verbleiben im Kult und die eigene Akzentsetzung drucken sich in den Psalmen durch Bevorzugung von Dank- und Gelubdeopfern sowie die besondere Betonung des Gotteslobes und der personlichen Beziehung des Beters zu Gott in Form von spiritualisierten Opfern aus.

Evocations of the Calf?

Scholars often ask how Paul’s polemic against Gentile idolatry and immorality in Romans 1:18–32 prepares for indicting a Jewish interlocutor in 2:1–11. This study proposes that Paul’s argumentation draws on the portrayal of Jewish identity in Psalm 106 and that in drawing on this portrayal Paul was participating in a larger discussion, one that included the Wisdom of Solomon and one in which evocations of the golden calf figured prominently.

"The papers published here are pioneering studies, fresh and provocative, full of brilliant detail, together yielding major advances in the analysis of Hebrew poetry ... Freedman is moved by symmetries in Hebrew poetry undetected by a previous generation of students--symmetries, or rhythms at every level: phonetic, morphological, grammatical, structural in colon, verse, and strophe. He desires as well to provide a scholarly description and notation to Hebrew prosodic canons and techniques more refined and precise than alternate systems afford. He has a sure and instinctive literary feel for his material."--Jacket.

Biblical Hebrew in Transition

The Language of the Book of Ezekiel

The purpose of this work is to determine the place of the book of Ezekiel in the history of the Hebrew language, especially in relationship to the canonical books of the Hebrew Bible. The Hebrew of Ezekiel contains grammatical and lexical features that are characteristic of the postexilic and postbiblical periods, and should thus be distinguished from earlier Hebrew works of the classical period. It does not, however, contain as much late Hebrew as other canonical books deemed to be late. The book of Ezekiel should thus be regarded as the representative mediating link between pre-exilic and postexilic Biblical Hebrew.

The recovery of 800 documents in the eleven caves on the northwest shores of the Dead Sea is one of the most sensational archeological discoveries in the Holy Land to date. These three volumes, the very best of critical scholarship, demonstrate in detail how the scrolls have revolutionized our knowledge of the text of the Bible, the character of Second Temple Judaism, and the Jewish beginnings of Christianity.
