In this unique volume, the author asks "What do the key terms YHWH, Elohim, and El mean within the "Masoretic Text" of the Pentateuch in the context of translating the Christian canon into minority languages?" He first summarizes the past comparative phiological scholarship for the names of God, YHWH, Elohim, and El, and identifies and evaluates the methodology behind it. Next, he provides a brief summary of the relevant aspects of cognitive linguistics, which then serves as the foundation for a fresh cognitive investigation into the way 'God' is conceptualized within the Pentateuch.In the second part, he then turns to the issue of literary processes in relation to words for 'God,' and discussion is limited to the interchange between YHWH and Elohim in the Pentateuch. Using the principles of narrative linearity, cumulative reading knowledge, and characterization, he proposes a fresh account for the interchange between YHWH and Elohim based upon the literary structure of the text.This book contributes to scholarship by demonstrating methodologically how traditional comparative philology has identified the meaning of YHWH, Elohim, and El within the text of the Pentateuch, and then proposes a cognitive account, which seems to resonate better with contextual approaches to meaning. Further, this thesis provides a rationale for the interchange between YHWH and Elohim which is based on the literary structure of the Pentateuch.Over the last 30 years this pioneering series has established an unrivalled reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies and has attracted leading authors and editors in the field. The series takes many original and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from historical and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and more recent developments in cultural studies and reception history.
