Among the articles of primary theological importance included in Volume XII are these: par'?h (Pharaoh), p?sa, pesa' (sin, offense, crime), seb?' t (Sabaoth), s?daq, sedeq, sed?q ( be] righteous, righteousness), qds, q?des (holy), and q?h?l (congregation). Each article is fully annotated and contains an extensive bibliography with cross-references to the entire series.
