Figures of Speech Used in the Bible by E. W. Bullinger

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 extensively, classified and catalogued them.

Their work still holds true in modern English, as it did in ancient Hebrew and Bullingrr. Bullingers work is The Standard.

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 should 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. Perfect for correctly identifying figures of speech in various places throughout the Bible. I often point out their use while teaching Bible study classes, and this book has made that much easier for me.

I don’t have to guess what kind of figure is being used in a given passage, though I certainly think on it myself to ensure the author is correct. There is much figurative language in the Bible, and this book helps to sift through all of that. One person found this helpful.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. As a student of the scriptures for over 35 years, I have long owned and used the hardback reference of the same title.

It is large and cumbersome to carry about, over pages, 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, figurres all the various figures of speech are listed, then be able to “click” and “go” to that listed figure.

Navigation bulpinger the piece is a little cumbersome, but having to lug around the resource is a definite plus. I give it a 4 out of 5 stars for that reason mostly.

With over figures of speech speedh in the Holy Bible, having this powerful tool at my fingertips is a great blessing. I wish 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 invaluable aid to understanding Holy Scripture. Now, in my seniority, it is just as important. I recommend it to every Pastor, Teacher, etc. Some will find it intimidating because it is not for leisurely reading, but true searchers for truth will treasure it.

The most valuable book I own is the Holy Bible. The next four most valuable are; 1.

Bullinger: Figures of Speech Used in the Bible

Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance, 2. Thayer’s Greek Lexicon, 3. Bullinger’s work on figures of speech used in the bible is an impressive volume. It’s not only the fact that it is so exhaustive and all encompassing, but that it was originally published in – prior to databases, electronic texts and computerized searches! 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 division containing a host of figures.

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.

The scope of this work covers both the Old and New Testament and provides plentiful examples, often employing Hebrew and Greek. And it is certainly a go-to book for anyone interested in figures of speech, idioms and related studies.

If you are a serious student of the Word or of literature in general, this book is a must have! I don’t agree with all of E. B’s theological points, but that’s not a biggie – there’s so much to learn from him.

His research and writing stem from his familiarity with the ancient texts – both secular and sacred – and he’s fluent in Hebrew, a couple varieties of Greek, and Latin Why do you need this book? If you’ve ever struggled with difficult statements in the Scriptures, then E. B’s book will help you understand if you’re dealing with a figure of speech that should be interpreted somewhat differently e. He doesn’t pull any punches, which I greatly appreciate and he’s a true scholar. His book is not an easy read, but I’m okay with that, too, since effort is usually required to harvest some of the greater treasures in life.
