Example text

Also, the history of biblical studies provides examples of the appearance of new ways of reading texts that bring to light things which previous scholars have not noticed. Fox finds this ‘of doubtful appropriateness to scholarly analysis’. Whatever Heim’s goal, the value of it to scholars must be judged by the outcome. 13 3. 4. 5. 6. It is arguable that good teachers would seek to produce such clusters. McKane asserted that any such structures in Proverbs ‘are of secondary character’ and to be ignored when interpreting a proverb.

Table 1 shows the clusters identified by Heim, Waltke and myself in Proverbs 10. This degree of agreement gives encouragement to think that the smaller clusters are not simply subjective creations. 9 10 11 Fox critiqued Heim’s work, finding it unconvincing for a number of reasons. 12 1. I have tried to approach the issue without expecting that clusters must exist, but being open to seeing whether any do. 2. Heim is aware of this danger and seeks to guard against it by looking for ‘linkages’ of sufficient strength to avoid it.

The male ‘sinners’ play on the other two. Fox, rightly, rejects this as a mindset that is foreign to Proverbs in which the only essential ‘Other’ is evildoers (and sometimes fools) of both sexes who are beyond influence and redemption, having an inverted and incorrigibly perverse set of values. Women are not the ‘Other’ in such a radical sense. Valler argues this in the case of Jewish tradition and Masenya does so with regard to Northern Sotho women in Africa. Schroer finds positive features in Proverbs.
