In this Quarterly article Professor Cherney examines the common errors people make during exegesis. He comments on issues such as abuse of etymology, judgments on worldview based on language, focusing too much on individual words, and mistakes made when language and thought are not distinguished. In the process he gives an insightful summary of linguistics and their use in understanding the Bible.
