Sample text

Significantly, problems and doubts of these kinds attach to the late features tabulated in the other textual selections. The promising and apparently objective statistical presentation is thus inadequate to the task. It mechanically counts features without sensitivity to frequency (characteristic versus uncharacteristic use) or to the full and complex array of factors contributing to linguistic diversity in ancient Hebrew. Further, it does not distinguish between clear-cut cases and exegetical/linguistic cruxes.

Morphology and syntax, was evidently much more challenging. With this in mind, it seems likely that statistical presentations can provide a helpful picture only in the case of commonly occurring phenomena, but not necessarily in the case of the odd classical or post-classical lexeme or even a concentration of individual lexemes. These observations do not negate the value of statistical measurement when it comes to the diachronic approach to BH and the linguistic dating of biblical texts, but they do demonstrate the danger of an overly simplistic statistical method.

14 and MT’s ‫ ָע ֶרָך‬versus the expected ‫ צרך‬both ‘your enemy’ or some other alternative at v. 16 (I 351–352). Alternatively, both MT readings may be correct, the latter a dialectal oddity, in which case these have no real bearing on linguistic dating. Their discussion of ‫ ֵעת‬versus ‫ ִע ִּתים‬and of ‫ ֲאנִ י‬versus ‫( ָאנ ִֹכי‬I 352–353) is interesting, though of questionable probity. First, it is based on Lust’s (2003) view that a single Greek version of Ezekiel as preserved in p(apyrus)967 reflects an earlier Hebrew edition of the introduction 35 development, but do not come close to confirming a degree of textual instability so severe as to render impossible serious linguistic description.
