All figurative language is used to add specific emphasis to literal text. One can’t understand any literary work well without recognizing the figures of speech used and the emphasis added by them. The Bible is no different. Most “scholars” pick, seemingly at random, what passages they want to view as “figurative,” without any rhyme or reason, to match their private interpretation.
The ancient Greeks studied the figures ueed, classified and catalogued them. Their work still holds true in modern English, as spwech did in ancient Hebrew and Greek. Bullingers work is The Bullinfer. It exhaustively covers the figurative language used in all western languages, showing how to recognize them and the specific emphasis they add.
It has examples of each used in the Bible, in both the Old and New Testaments. There is no excuse for guessing what is figurative or what it means. This work is narrowly focused. Bullinger is not trying to justify how he felt the Word should be interpreted.
This is a scholarly work about the language. All who write use study this work to truly understand and master their language. While few people recognise the figures in their language, such as alliteration and metaphors, they are heavily affected by them.
Mastering their use will make any author much more effective. While very expensive new, this rather dated classic can be bought used for a very reasonable price.

As a student of the scriptures for over 35 bu,linger, I have long owned and used the hardback reference of the same title. It is large and cumbersome to carry about, over bulliger, but the Kindle edition eliminates that shortcoming.
Instead of just being listed in paragraph format, I would have preferred to have had the ability to open up to the table of contents, where all the various figures of speech are listed, then be able to “click” and “go” to bullingee listed figure.
Navigation through the piece is spsech little cumbersome, but having to lug around the resource is a definite plus.
Bullinfer give it a 4 out of 5 stars for that reason mostly. With over figures of speech used in the Holy Bible, having this powerful tool at my fingertips is a great blessing. I bbible you great “mining”, as you dig into the depths of your research. As it is written in II Timothy 2: Bullinger has gone through every paragraph of the bible and written an extensive explanation of the parts of speech.

Some fall short of of the Hebrew roots understanding of speech. But overall a monumental achievement. This comprehensive volume is one of a kind. As a student, many years, ago, I found it an fjgures aid to understanding Holy Scripture.

I feel to stress that this isn’t a “readable” book with sentences, paragraphs and a plot per se – but a reference volume, akin to an encyclopedia.
It is categorized into three main sections or “Divisions” as Bullinger calls them; figures involving omission, figures involving addition, and figures involving change – each billinger containing a host of bu,linger. Some of the figures listed are as basic as duplication or epizeuxis in Greek, such as “My God, my God In fact it’s hard to believe that anything could be excluded, but that’s not a bad thing.
