The task of the present study is to examine in Akkadian, Ugaritic, and Hebrew literature those expressions which employ anatomical terms. The purpose of this collection of data is to demonstrate again the concrete nature of ancient Semitic mentality and expression, to contribute in a specialized area toward an understanding of the literary style of the literature of these people, and in light of comparative materials to clarify some obscure expressions and passages in the three languages.
