Volume XII of the highly respected "Theological Dictionary of the OldTestament expands the scope of this fundamental reference tool forbiblical studies. Ranging from "pasah, pesah ("Passover") to "qum("stand, rise"), these eighty-six articles include thorough etymologicalanalysis of the Hebrew roots and their derivatives within thecontext of Semitic and cognate languages, diachronically considered, as well as Septuagint, New Testament, and extracanonical usages.Among the articles of primary theological importance included inVolume XII are these: "par'oh ("Pharaoh"), "pasa, pesa' ("sin, offense, crime"), "se>baot("Sabaoth"), "sadaq, sedeq, se>daqa("[be] righteous, righteousness"), "qds, qodes("holy"), and "qahal("congregation").Each article is fully annotated and contains an extensive bibliographywith cross-references to the entire series.
This multivolume work is still proving to be as fundamental to Old Testament studies as its companion set, the Kittel-Friedrich Theological Dictionary of the New Testament, has been to New Testament studies. Beginning with 'abh ('ab), "father," and continuing through the alphabet, the TDOT volumes present in-depth discussions of the key Hebrew and Aramaic words in the Old Testament. Leading scholars of various religious traditions (including Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Greek Orthodox, and Jewish) and from many parts of the world (Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States) have been carefully selected for each article by editors Botterweck, Ringgren, and Fabry and their consultants, George W. Anderson, Henri Cazelles, David Noel Freedman, Shemaryahu Talmon, and Gerhard Wallis.
