Chapter Summary

Instead of simple prepositions the LXX frequently uses periphrases, formed by means of nouns denoting a part of the body. In Hebrew, the combination of a preposition and a noun, mostly denoting a part of the body, are equal to a preposition. Waltke-O'Connor classify the Hebrew prepositions in three categories according to their formal appearance: simple prepositions, compound prepositions and complex prepositions. The prepositions under discussion belong to the complex prepositions: they are composed of one or more prepositions and a noun. This study evaluates whether the literal use suits the passages in the book of Ezekiel or whether it is used there as a prepositional phrase. The prepositional phrases under discussion do not occur in genuine Greek or in Greek other than the LXX.
