Scapegoats, Shambles and Shibboleths: The Queen's English from the King James Bible - livre d'occasion

ISBN: 9780340979792

ID: 11918663

"In the twinkling of an eye," this book explains that many familiar phrases are taken straight from the King James Version of the Bible The fruit of Martin Manser's labors is a delightful book for all who adore the English language. Far from always quoting the Bible to seem holier than thou, it seems many people quote the book without even realizing it. Manser explains in detail such commonly used phrases as "a fly in the ointment," "eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die," "at death's door," and "the apple of one's eye"--in the past the pupil of the eye, because of its shape, was referred to as "the apple." Recognized to be the most important part of the eye, it was a symbol for all things precious--the most valuable part of a highly valued organ of the body. Dotted around the Bible the phrase therefore represents anything that is of great worth, whether it is the law of God in Proverbs 7 v 2, the people of Israel found and nurtured in the desert, or an individual on the receiving end of divine care. A perfectly quirky present for language lovers, this book will amuse and entertain as well as shed a thought-provoking light on the background to our rich and varied language.

The fruit of his labours', Martin Manser's SCAPEGOATS, SHAMBLES AND SHIBBOLETHS is a delightful book for all who adore the English language. In the twinkling of an eye' we learn that many of our most familiar phrases are taken straight from the King James Version of the Bible. Far from being holier than thou', it seems we quote from the Bible without even realising! Martin Manser explains in detail what it is to be the apple of someone's eye' . . . No modern physiology book would put it like this, but in the past the pupil of the eye was referred to as "the apple". After all, it was shaped like one. In addition, because it was recognised to be the most important part of the eye it was a symbol for all things precious. The most valuable part of a highly valued organ of the body. Dotted around the Bible the phrase therefore represents anything that is of great worth - whether it is the law of God in Proverbs 7 v 2, the people of Israel found and nurtured in the desert or as an individual on the receiving end of divine care.' A quirky present, SCAPEGOATS SHAMBLES AND SHIBBOLETHS will amuse and entertain as well as shed a thought-provoking light on the background to our rich and varied language.
