The Ear Discerns Words
Studies in Ibn Ezra's Exegetical Methodology
The Institute for Jewish Bible Interpretation Sources and Studies
By Uriel Simon
Click to Enlarge

The magic words the ear discerns words which Ibn Ezra himself quotes from Job 34:3 express well his total commitment to the method of pshat, which is based on the assumption that the ear of the interpreter truly discerns the meaning of words and hears what Scripture says.

This book deals with fundamental questions of Ibn Ezras methodology, such as his definition of pshat and his concept of drash, biblical secrets and clues, polemical pressures and the quest for truth, criticism verses conservatism, his fundamental disagreement with Rashi and Rashbam, his attitude to history and science, and the history of supercommentaries to his interpretation.
