1 Dray, Carol A. TRANSLATION AND INTERPRETATION IN THE TARGUM TO THE BOOKS OF KINGS
Brill Academic Publishers 2006 9004146989 / 9789004146983 Hardcover As New with no dust jacket 
From the series 'Studies in Aramaic Interpretation of Scripture' volume 5. The non-literal, interpretative renderings in the Targums are a source of fascination. This study examines translation techniques in the Targum to the books of Kings and other Targums, particularly in the areas of contemporization, reverential rendering, treatment of figurative language and halakic harmonization. Common theological concerns, for example, the uniqueness of God and the use of the innovative divine title, Memra, have been considered. Divergences from the biblical text have been systematically compared with translations in the other ancient versions. Close examination of the text leads to the conclusion that the preponderance of apparently didactic readings would conform with the Targum's function as a tool in the synagogue and the school and for private study. ; tall 8vo 9" - 10" tall; 232 pp
