Abstract A Greimassian structural semantic analysis indicates a linguistic correlation between the use of “BYT-DWD” in the biblical narratives and its occurrence on the Aramaic inscription from Tel Dan. Several problems arise when the modern structural semantic linguistic approach is applied to the discipline of the Old Testament research and the method must therefore be assimilated accordingly. Even though the modification results in a more adequate approach, it can never definitively establish a correlation between the two lexemes of “House of David.” Still certain linguistic traits cannot be denied and the question of the semantic “meaning” becomes the focal point,—is the Aramaic inscription from Tel Dan in fact referring to David in the biblical narratives or is the meaning more subtle.
