The Bridling of the Tongue and the Opening of the Mouth in Biblical Prophecy

Gregory Glazov
A&C Black, 2001 M03 1 - 458 páginas
Glazov demonstrates that the interlinked themes of bridling the tongue and opening the mouth, well-known components of wisdom teaching, are also crucial to understanding much in the prophets, as well as later Jewish and Christian writings, especially liturgical texts. His comprehensive survey and analysis of the theme contribute to both a literary and a historical perspective on the prophetic literature of the Bible.
