Chapter Summary

This chapter provides a summary and conclusion of the book Jerome's Hebrew Philology: A Study Based on his Commentary on Jeremiah. In the Commentary on Jeremiah, Jerome's last exegetical work, the reader can see clearly and fully appreciate Jerome’s method as a philologist, the extent and nature of his Hebrew knowledge, and the ways in which Hebrew shaped his overall engagement with the biblical text. Jerome learned to pay attention not only to the sounds of words, but also to the intended tone of statements, and to the relationship between the pauses read in the text and the division of sentences into clauses. Jerome explicitly cites and discusses a total of seventy-six non-proper name Hebrew words in the Commentary on Jeremiah. In the area of Hebrew philology, Jerome is indeed original and exhibits a remarkable coherence of method.
