The 'Song' of the Servant: Gen 24:23

Karolien Vermeulen UGent (2011) VETUS TESTAMENTUM. 61(3). p.449-504
abstract
Previous research on Gen 24:23 mainly focused on its content and the difficulties occurring in regard to it. In this short note, I will address the semantics of the form as primary to the lexical meaning in an answer to the interpretation problems. The servant’s questions may be in the wrong order or rhetorical in the sense that he already knows the answer. However, they make sense in depicting the character speaking and they appeal to the audience on a more universal level and through more accessible means.
