Abstract

KELEBH 'DOG': ITS ORIGIN AND SOME USAGES OF IT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT 1) by D. WINTON THOMAS Cambridge This paper, as its title indicates, consists of two parts. In the first - the shorter - part I shall consider the origin of the Hebrew word 'dog', and I shall indicate where I believe its most likely origin is to be found. And in the second part of the paper I shall discuss some usages of ?55 in the Old Testament which are, I think, of con- siderable interest when they are studied in the light of available comparative material. To begin with, two preliminary remarks about the word First, it occurs also in Akkadian, Phoenician, Ugaritic, Arabic, Aramaic and Syriac, and Ethiopic 2). It is thus gemein.remiti.rch, very probably iir.remiti.rcb 3). And secondly, classical Hebrew has no femin- ine form though Akkadian, Ugaritic, Arabic, Aramaic and Syriac, and post-biblical Hebrew possess it 4), and Egyptian has the word kmn-t, which is said to be the equivalent of klb-t 5). The absence of the feminine form from the vocabulary of ancient Hebrew is doubtless purely accidental, unless we care to think that, in the case of as in
