Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Antithetic Structure in Biblical Hebrew Poetry contains a table of contents, a preface, abbreviations, text-editions used (sources and translations) and instructions to the reader. Biblical books are the final products of long developments of tradition. Consequently, they can be approached in two ways: as bearers of previous tradition, and as final products. The structure of poetic parts of the Old Testament (OT) is analysed by means of a count of stichs, verses (made up of one, two or three stichs) and strophes (made up of one or more verses).

Keywords: biblical books; Old Testament (OT)
