Product Overview

She is that seductive woman to be feared, who leads one to utter destruction, and has often been translated as a ~the adulteressa (TM) and a ~the strange womana (TM) in Proverbs 1-9. However, the Hebrew explicitly refers to her as a a ~foreign womana (TM) and a a ~strange womana (TM). This book argues against the former translation and identifies a motif of the a ~foreign womana (TM) within the Hebrew scripture where she originates. It also continues to trace how this motif develops after she leaves Proverbs 1-9 to the later Jewish wisdom literature.
