The purpose of this thesis, as is implied in the title, is to present an introductory study of the terns used of idols in the Old Testament. It is needless to say that no attempt has been made even to approximate an exhaustive presentation of all, or any single one of the forty-eight terms which cone into consideration. Indeed, almost any one of the terms would be found upon thorough study in itself to provide sufficient material for an acceptable thesis. We have, therefore, confined our attention to just those facts which we thought were strictly essential for at least a limited understanding of the individual terms.
