Abstract For some time the use of various verbs of fleeing in the Targum has attracted attention. Around twenty five years ago Bernard Grossfeld acknowledged the difficulty of reaching any sound conclusion as to their use. Recently Eveline van Staalduine-Sulman considered these verbs in Targum Samuel and concluded that they displayed subtly different meanings. This study examines their use in the whole of the Targum to the Former Prophets to test the proposition of subtlety.
