Bible translators have, through inattention to figures of speech, made serious translation blunders, clouding the real meaning of many important passages of God’s Word. E. W. Bullinger’s volume, first published in 1898, clarifies 217 distinct figures of speech used in the Bible.

Walter C. Kaiser, dean of Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, calls it “the best handbook on figures of speech. It should be on every exegete’s shelf.”

In systematic order, this classic gives the proper pronunciation of each figure of speech, its etymology or origin, and a number of Scripture passages where the figure of speech is used, with a full explanation of its use in each context. The book cites nearly eight thousand Bible passages and includes five appendices, making it even more valuable as a reference tool.

This book contains an exhaustive collection of figures of speech. The entries are organized into three broad categories (figures involving omission, addition, or change) and then subdivided into figures affecting words and figures affecting meaning. All of the figures are indexed, of course, so this is a great resource for anyone interested in information about specific figures of speech. Even better, the book is also indexed by scripture and contains nearly 8000 examples from the OT and NT, which makes the book a great reference for Bible study. I've used a print copy of this book in the past, and having this resource in Accordance makes searching by reference much, much easier.
