Tanakh is the sacred book of Judaism and part of the Christian holy book, which is claimed to have the ability to meet the basic needs of mankind, that is, to know the true laws governing human thoughts and behavior throughout history. One way to evaluate this claim is to examine the text of the book, including a content and structural review. One of the methods of structural analysis is to examine the style of expression of propositions, which shows whether the text has the necessary dynamics to respond to its audience or not. Propositions in a text cannot be excluded from two situations: they are either declarative statements or non-declarative statements. In examining this book, it is necessary to examine both types, in order to determine whether this book, in terms of language, has the ability to present its concepts to its audience in a suitable format throughout history or not? Examining the style of expression of declarative and non-declarative statements using the traditional linguistic method, it was found that some of the propositions in these books, such as doctrinal propositions, have the ability to respond to the audience of these books at different times, and some of its other propositions, especially jurisprudential issues, do not have enough ability to express the concepts needed by the audience.
