Sample text

A text is to be considered northern only if (d) it contains a concentration of distinctively northern linguistic features. While there is little doubt that BH as represented in the Tiberian Masoretic tradition conceals viable linguistic phenomena especially typical of northern users of ancient Hebrew, and while Rendsburg’s methodology certainly provides for some measure of scientific rigor, for a number of reasons it cannot promise the same degree of objectivity offered by Hurvitz’ diachronic approach.

5, and especially n. 40). 2). 5 Recent Criticism of the Diachronic Approach to Biblical Hebrew and the Linguistic Dating of Biblical Texts Since the beginning of the scholarly attempt to date biblical texts on the basis of their language there have been differences of opinion on the respective dates of certain works, for example, the Priestly source of the Pentateuch, the different parts of Isaiah, Job, Song of Songs, Ruth, and Qohelet, to name just a few. Notwithstanding significant documentary and inscriptional discoveries and methodological refinements made during the 20th century, the linguistic approach to dating cannot provide a solution for every problem.

There are several problems with Kim’s line of argumentation. First, he bases his conclusion on an examination of a selection of just eight features. However, since seven of these are considered authentic changes, and three of these seven irreversible, unconscious changes from below, it stands to reason that an examination of a larger sampling may very sell result in a large number of diachronically meaningful developments.
