Abstract

VENTER, Pieter M.. Did Ms Wisdom of Proverbs 8 become a mystery in 4QInstruction?. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2016, vol.72, n.4, pp.1-9. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/hts.v72i4.3259.

The Hebrew Bible is quoted and alluded to in 4QInstruction. There is an obvious similarity between the way the raz nihyeh of 4QInstruction and Lady Wisdom in Proverbs 8 function. This intertextual study investigates this phenomenon by comparing 4Q416 2 III 8-21 and 4Q417 1 I with Proverbs 8:12-21 and 8:22-31. It is concluded that apocalyptic influence changed the character of Lady Wisdom but not her essential function.
