Authors of the Hebrew Bible had at least 17 different verbs from which they could choose to represent the action of "leading" or "guiding" in the Hebrew Bible. What are these "verbs of leading" and how are they similar to and different from one another? Why were particular "leading" verbs chosen in particular contexts?

This study analyzes the verb class "verbs of leading" in the Hebrew Bible. Every occurrence of the verbs of leading in the Hebrew Bible is examined through the lens of semantic-role theory by assigning semantic roles (e.g., Agent, Object, Goal, Source, Path) to each of the phrases typically used with the verbs. The verb class "verbs of leading" is defined, distinguishing features between the particular verbs of leading are identified, and several problematic passages in the Bible are dealt with using insights from this analysis. Although scholars have given the study of individual Biblical Hebrew words, and especially verbs, a great amount of attention in lexicons, articles, and books, little study has been done on specific verb groups in the Hebrew Bible. This analysis provides a potential model for such work in the future.
