Georg Heinrich August Ewald (1803-1875) was one of the nineteenth century’s foremost Biblical scholars. His great appreciation for the work of medieval Jewish scholars in Biblical exegesis, Hebrew grammar, and lexicography is evident in his work, Syntax of the Hebrew Language of the Old Testament. Ewald’s work profited much by the great advances in linguistic knowledge derived from the comparative study of the Indo-European languages, especially an extensive application of phonetic and other philological principles, bringing Syntax of the Hebrew Language of the Old Testament nearer than its predecessors to the realm of an exact science, and contributing to its status as a classic.

Further Biblical Hebrew (paperback)

Explanations and Exercises
Series: Gorgias Handbooks 11
ISBN: 978-1-61143-662-4
This coursebook is designed for students who have completed at least one year of college study in Biblical Hebrew. It helps students make the transition from the basic grammar books to use of the comprehensive reference grammars and to more advanced analysis of Biblical Hebrew. Constant reference is made to recent works of grammar, and also to the grammatical comments of the medieval Jewish exegetes. A central theme is that medieval and modern Biblical Hebrew scholars have reached essentially similar conclusions, even if the medievals lacked modern terminology.

A Short Introduction to the Tiberian Masoretic Bible and its Reading Tradition

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0246-0
This book is intended to provide a quick introductory overview of the Tiberian Masoretic tradition of the Hebrew Bible and its background. It was this tradition that produced the great Masoretic codices of the Middle Ages, which form the basis of modern printed editions of the Hebrew Bible. Particular prominence is given to the multi-layered nature of the Masoretic tradition. The volume contains a section describing the Tiberian reading tradition, which is essential for a correct understanding of the vocalization system.

A Call to Covenant Love

Text Grammar and Literary Structure in Deuteronomy 5–11
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0380-1
Profound in its conclusions and targeted toward the exegete, this volume offers a clear method for establishing flow of thought, text hierarchy, and literary macrostructure in biblical Hebrew prose. The study contributes both to hermeneutical theory and to the study of Deuteronomy by arguing for the application of discourse linguistics alongside stylistic and semantic analysis in the interpretation of OT texts. It includes a brief literary-structural and theological commentary on Deuteronomy 5–11 that models the text grammatical approach and shows its benefits for exegesis.
