Biblical Interpretation in Ancient Israel

Michael Fishbane (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

An explication of pious revisions and theological additions is offered. Scribes corrected or transformed elements, which they found problematic or contradictory. This includes hints of myth or polytheism; pagan practices; or ambiguous theological formulations. Changes range from changing letters to revising words and formulations. Comparisons of parallel formulations within the Hebrew Bible, as well as of the Hebrew Bible (Masoretic text) and the Septuagint or Qumran scrolls are made.

Keywords:   euphemisms, pious correction, theological emendation, theological revisions
