In this classic work, E. W. Bullinger sets out 217 distinct figures of speech present in Scripture. "A figure," he writes, "is simply a word or a sentence thrown into a peculiar form, different from its original or simplest meaning or use." Figures of Speech Used in the Bible reveals, in systematic order, the proper pronunciation of each figure of speech, its etymology or origin, and a number of Scripture passages where the figure of speech is used. In all, nearly eight thousand passages are cited. The figures of speech are grouped together in three divisions: those involving omission, addition, and change. Five appendices and seven indexes make Figures of Speech Used in the Bible, first published in 1898, even more valuable as a reference tool. Figures of speech are key to the interpretation and exposition of the Bible. Translators and commentators who have not paid careful attention to them have made serious blunders and clouded the real meaning of many important passages. For those interested in the original meaning of Bible passages, this is a valuable exegetical reference tool. Book jacket.
