Series: Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament

Volume XVI concludes the monumental, critically acclaimed Theological Dictionary of the Old Testament with an Aramaic dictionary.

This latest and last TDOT volume incorporates nearly the complete lexicon of Biblical Aramaic as well as a major portion of the theologically, culturally, and historically relevant terms in other ancient Aramaic writings. Each article provides information on the term’s meaning and usage, is fully annotated, and contains a bibliography with cross-references to the entire TDOT series.

Further enhancing this volume are an introductory overview of the history of Aramaic and a comparative grammatical outline of ancient Aramaic at the end of the book.

Review of Biblical Literature
“A welcome resource. . . . Each entry locates particular Aramaic lexemes in the small corpus of Biblical Aramaic within the broader history of the Aramaic language. This brief review hardly does justice to the wealth of knowledge contained in this volume that will serve scholars for years to come.”
Theological Studies
“This volume gives biblical Aramaic its due, placing it squarely in the linguistic and cultural world of the Middle East in the late first millennium BCE.”
