The Bridling of the Tongue and the Opening of the Mouth in Biblical Prophecy by Gregory Glazov

The Bridling of the Tongue and the Opening of the Mouth in Biblical Prophecy

Part of the Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement S. Series


The Bridling of the Tongue and the Opening of the Mouth in Biblical Prophecy by Gregory Glazov

Glazov demonstrates that the interlinked themes of bridling the tongue and opening the mouth, well-known components of wisdom teaching, are also crucial to understanding much in the prophets, as well as later Jewish and Christian writings, especially liturgical texts. His comprehensive survey and analysis of the theme contribute to both a literary and a historical perspective on the prophetic literature of the Bible.


This important volume will be of interest to a wide range of Old Testament scholars. Theological Book Review Feed the Minds
