Pshat
Peshat (also P'shat, פשט) is one of four classical methods of Jewish biblical exegesis used by Rabbis and Jewish bible scholars in reading the Hebrew Bible, also known as the Tanakh. Peshat is part of a group of exegetical methods known together as Pardes. While Peshat is commonly defined as referring to the surface or literal meaning of a text, numerous scholars and Rabbis have debated this for centuries, giving Peshat many uses and definitions.

Kankan Ne'lam: Pshat vs. Drash II
Introduction Last year I wrote a blog post in which I presented my understanding of the difference between Pshat and drash, "Pshat" refers to the meaning of the words as intended by the author, whereas "drash" refers to the homiletic use of the author's words as a platform for expressing an extrinsic idea which may or may not have anything to do with the author's original intent. I supported these definitions with sources from Ibn Ezra, Ralbag, Radvaz, and Shiltei ha'Giborim.
