Abstract

364 10 McKenzie, p. 81, suggests that the "missing prep. in Heb. has been lost by haplography; the preceding word ends in beth. 11 Though Westermann classifies this passage under his second category, "eine Ode oder Verwüstung, die angerichtet wird", it had better be grouped with this abstract usage, since the term t � hû appears in parallel with ¸ � yin. Cf. Westermann, Genesis 1-11 (Neukirchen-Vluyn, 1974), pp. 142-3. 12 l � ¸-t � hû b ∂ r � ¸ � h "Not as a desolate place he created it"; l � šebet y ∂ s � r � h "for habitation he formed it". Here, the term t � hû appears as a term for an uninhabited place. 13 bimqôm "in (lit. in the place of)" here functions almost as a compound preposition like b ∂ tôk or ba¸ � šer. Also cf. bimqôm ¸ � šer in Hos. ii 1; 2 Sam. xv 21, etc. 14 The basic meaning of t � hû is "a desert, a waste" like Arabic tih and Ugaritic thw(t). Cf.
