    Abstract:
    The purpose of this paper is to explore afresh the use of the weyiqtol form in Biblical Hebrew. The particular concern of this paper is to delineate the precise meaning of the form in both volitive and indicative contexts. It is argued that this form always carries the connotation of purpose or result, regardless of its context. The paper concludes with an assessment of the impact of these data on the understanding of the volitive sequence in Biblical Hebrew.
