Item description for Full of Praise: An Exegetical Study of Sir 39, 12-35 (Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism) by Jan Liesen...

This volume deals with the book of Ben Sira, discussing his self-understanding and his relation to Wisdom and God. Point of departure is the hymnic instruction in Sir 39, 12-35. The study opens with an examination of its text-critical situation, structure and literary format. In the first part the diptych on the trades, Sir 38-39, is examined as context for the hymn. The second part focuses on the frame of the hymn and investigates the role of sage and disciples; the third part considers the sapiential teaching (39, 16-31) in detail. The section on the "work of God," the use of the first-person singular, and the nature of text-forms are of special interest for scholars of Old Testament wisdom literature, the intertestamental period and the history of Judaism.

Reviews - What do customers think about Full of Praise: An Exegetical Study of Sir 39, 12-35 (Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism)?

The Book of Sirach Needs Jan Liesen  Sep 13, 2002
This book is the doctoral dissertation written by Father Jan Liesen of the Netherlands for the Pontifical Biblical Institute. I was present at his defense in Rome on January 16th, 1998.
Sirach (also known as Ecclesiasticus) is part of the deuterocanonica, accepted as part of Scripture by Orthodox, Catholics and some Protestants, but not accepted by Jews and most Protestants. Because this book was not accepted as Scripture by the rabbis at the Council of Jamnia, the original Hebrew text of the book was lost. Nonetheless, the book continued to exercise some influence on Jewish thought, and there are some 80 quotations in the talmudic literature. Eventually partial Hebrew manuscripts surfaced in Cairo in the 1880's and at Qumran in the 1950's. It is now possible to attempt a reconstruction of the Hebrew original, but there are so many different redactions that it is not easy to establish the text. Liesen treats chapter 39 as a "test case" for his methodology for dealing with this elusive author. Liesen's book is indispensable to an informed study of Sirach.
