The article examines three Biblical Hebrew Lexemes. It exerts the method of semantic and structural analysis based on Eugenio Coseriu postulates. First it defines and explains the method used, then it realizes a distributional analysis and a classematic analysis of each lexeme. The second and the third phase proceed according to the functional language with the direct examination of each single occurrence. In the end it summarizes the achieved results. The structural analysis applied to the study of this three lexemes has allowed to develop some theories about the concept of kingship in the Biblical Hebrew and its development through functional languages.
