This study applies several linguistic approaches to the book of
Samuel in order to investigate the defining features of metaphor
and the way metaphor and other forms of figurative language operate
in biblical narrative. The book begins with an exploration of how
to identify and interpret the metaphors in 1 Samuel 25. Next, the
metaphors in 2 Samuel 16: 16-17: 14 are compared with other tropes,
primarily metonymy and simile. Then the notion of "dead" metaphors
is challenged while examining the figurative language in 1 Samuel
24. An in-depth analysis of the figurative language in these texts
results in a better understanding of the mechanics of metaphor, and
a richer, more nuanced reading of these stories, their characters,
