Reciprocity is the basis for fundamental ethical principles as the golden rule (“do unto others as you would have them do unto you”). Although the Bible has a lasting influence on our culture, we know surprisingly little about what reciprocity meant in biblical times. In my work I investigate the concept of reciprocity in ancient Israel, by looking at how reciprocal situations are described in language. With this research I aim to make a contribution to both biblical studies and linguistics.
