"Biblica et Orientalia" 42
1987 pp. XVIII-438
This book ventures to close a gap in recent studies on Job. Since the discoveries of the text at Ugarit (1929) and at Ebla (1974) hundreds of new suggestions have been made for the understanding of Job based on these texts by a number of schlars and especially by M. Dahood. All areas of ancient Hebrew are affected: orthography, lexicography, grammar, syntax and poetic devices.
Walter L. Michel was associate professor of Old testament at the Lutheran school of Theology at Chicago. This book is a thesis that he spent seven weeks at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in 1979.
