This new and up-to-date philological edition of all substantive Hebrew inscriptions from the Iron II (pre-exilic) period takes into account the most current research and presents extensive textual commentary, casting new light on the ancient Israelite language, history, and religion in the monarchic period.
An introduction accompanies every inscription and provides the historical, archaeological, and linguistic information necessary for proper interpretation. The authors also furnish a bibliography of the most important secondary literature on each inscription, new transliteration and translation based on all available published photographs, and detailed philological and historical notes, including substantial epigraphic comment where required. A concordance and several useful appendices complete the volume.
