The author basing himself on an extensive sample of original Old Testament Hebrew contexts and their translations into Slavic languages investigates the complicated semantic problems connected with the proper translation and rendering in Slavic languages of the Biblical designation of the color green. Being not in agreement with the previous research on the subject he makes important points on the specificity of the translation of the Biblical color terms and on the nature of the Biblical text.
