Chapter Summary

This conclusory chapter presents a linguistic analysis of Job 12-14 based on the functional-grammatical and cognitive-semantic currents in contemporary linguistics. Its purpose was twofold: on the one hand, the author tried to demonstrate that the integration of the two methodologies provides an analytical tool that is both linguistically pertinent and hermeneutically relevant, enabling the move from linguistics to hermeneutics. The research in this chapter concentrated on the terms יכח hi. and דבר, since both are used by Job in 13:3, the verse in which he most explicitly opposes his own way of speaking (to God) to that of the friends, who only speak lies on God's behalf.
