Abstract

The lengthened imperative ָקטְלָה is a salient feature of biblical Hebrew grammar. It is generally understood in one of three ways: as a stylistic variant of the regular imperative ְקטׁל, as a more emphatic form of ְקטׁל, and as a polite form of ְקטׁל. In this article, I shall investigate the use of the lengthened imperative in biblical Hebrew to examine which, if any, of these interpretations is correct.
