Abstract The concept of the power of language is a modern one in linguistic studies. But ancient Biblical and cognate traditions show similar insights reflecting the speaking of men as real acts. The reception and interpretation of this idea is often connected with magical traditions and in many cases authors had to face charges of dealing in magic. The Hebrew language in particular has been associated with power as well as with magic, and the Christian Hebraists thus showed a very ambivalent attitude to their fascinating subject.
