The Difference between הִנֵּה ,הֵן and רְאֵה
The original publication is only available in print
The present work investigates the differences between three apparent nearsynonyms הִנֵּה ,הֵן and רְאֵה . Their semantic potential is established on the basis of exhaustive studies of the occurrences of each form in the Hebrew Bible. We conclude that the most prototypical sense of רְאֵה overlaps with one of the less typical (i.e. secondary developments) of הִנֵּה but that רְאֵה and הֵן cannot be used interchangeably.
