An Introduction to Figures of Speech Used in the Bible

We want to understand God’s Word so we can believe it and please God and we are to take God’s Word literally whenever and wherever possible, the exceptions being when He uses figures of speech and orientalisms to communicate His truth. The use of figures of speech – places where something is said which is not literal or goes outside of the normal rules of language – is a key to the Word’s interpretation in the verse because it is how God highlights what is important in His Word. This series is a simple introduction to some figures of speech used in the Bible so we can learn to spot them as we read.
