Title: Il testo massoretico di Prov 3,34
Author(s): BARBIERO, Gianni
Volume: 63 Issue: 3 Date: 1982
MT differs from LXX in Prov 3,34 in having a clause subordinate to the initial 'm. The article seeks to show that this particular form of the text has its own value in exegesis. First it shows the structural unity of MT Prov 3,27-35 as a wisdom lesson about non-violence created by a series of prohibitions (vv. 27-31) based on Yahwistic motivations (3,32-35). Then it studies the special pedagogical force of v. 34 in explaining the divine action against the lṣym as intended to convert them to 'nyym so as to grant them forgiveness.
