In a Herculean task, Noonan has identified every foreign loanword (e.g., Egyptian, Greek, Hittite, Old Indic, Old Iranian, Hurrian) in the Hebrew Bible, listing them in lexicon form. An appendix discusses terms often mislabeled 'non-Semitic.' His findings lead to a greater accuracy in exegesis, translation, and linguistics. 548 pages, hardcover. Eisenbrauns.
