Chapter Summary

In the first part of this chapter, the author interprets the word 'of' in the title as an objective genitive, and the challenge posed to Hebrew lexicography today; in the second part, the 'of' will become a subjective genitive, signifying the challenge made by Hebrew lexicography. The chapter discusses some of the challenges for the future of Hebrew dictionary-making that exist today, both economic and scientific. The challenge posed by Hebrew lexicography today is a challenge to Hebrew Bible scholars generally, who refer every day in their work on the Bible to particular texts of the Bible in Hebrew or in their own language, and in so doing draw upon the work of lexicography on a daily basis.
