Sinossi:

The author sets out 217 distinct figures of speech present in Scripture. He gives for each the pronunciation and etymology of its name, and then a number of passages of Scripture in which it appears, accompanied by a full explanation. In all, nearly eight thousand passages are thus cited. The figures of speech are grouped together in three divisions: those involving (1) omission, (2) addition, and (3) change. Those in the first and second divisions are further subdivided into those affecting words and the sense. Figures involving change include those that affect the meaning and usage of words, those that affect the order and arrangement of words, and those that affect the application of words. "A figure," writes the author, "is simply a word or a sentence thrown into a peculiar form, different from its original or simplest meaning or use." Bible translators have, through inattention to figures of speech, "made blunders as serious as they are foolish. Sometimes they have translated the figure literally, totally ignoring its existence...sometimes they have taken literal words and translated them figuratively. Commentators and interpreters, from inattention to the figures, have been led astray from the real meaning of many important passages of God's Word..." -- Book jacket.
