Since the study of M. Lambert about the niph'al in 1990, hardly anything new has been published on this verbal stem. This study offers a new approach of the niph'al in Biblical Hebrew. It is studied in relation to the other passive-reflexive verbals stems. The book also presents an overview of all verbal roots of which niph'al forms occur.
