In this volume, James Robson provides a foundational analysis of the Hebrew text of Deuteronomy 1–11. Distinguished by the detailed yet comprehensive attention paid to the Hebrew text, Deuteronomy 1–11 is a convenient pedagogical and reference tool that explains the form and syntax of the biblical text, offers guidance for deciding between competing semantic analyses, engages important text-critical debates, and addresses questions relating to the Hebrew text that are frequently overlooked or ignored by standard commentaries. Beyond serving as a succinct and accessible analytic key, Deuteronomy 1–11 also reflects the most recent advances in scholarship on Hebrew grammar and linguistics. By filling the gap between popular and technical commentaries, the handbook becomes an indispensable tool for anyone committed to a deep reading of the biblical text.

Moses’ Second Address: 5:1–11:32 (26:19)
In Deuteronomy 1-11, James Robson offers detailed notes on almost all things text critical, morphological, grammatical, syntactical, and discourse linguistic encountered in the first eleven chapters of Deuteronomy. This will be an invaluable reference work for commentators and translators, and an extremely helpful textbook in exegesis courses on Deuteronomy 1–11.~Daniel I. Block, Gunther H.
