Abstract

VILJOEN, Anneke  and  VENTER, Pieter M.. An exploration of the symbolic world of Proverbs 10: 1-15:33 with specific reference to 'the fear of the Lord'. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2013, vol.69, n.1, pp. 1-6. ISSN 2072-8050.

Alternative approaches to text interpretation have introduced an opportunity to understand the biblical text afresh. One such an alternative approach is a Ricoeurian hermeneutic. Ricoeur's understanding of the referential intention of poetic texts will be drawn on to explore its interpretive contribution to a reading of Proverbs 10:1-15:33 with specific reference to the phrase 'the fear of the Lord'. It is suggested that the proposed reading strategy is a most productive effort.
