Dtr & Pss

October 30, 2008

The more I think about the Deuteronomist and the Psalter the more I start finding relationships. Hopefully soon I will have the time to set out a coherent argument but in the meantime I will quote Mowinckel to whet your appetites.

Now even in 2 Sam. 6 the saga-writer has evidently described the festival on the pattern of one of the processions at the festival of harvest and tabernacles, which was also the festival for the consecration of the Temple; he quite simply imagines that just as this festival was celebrated in his own day, so would the inaugural festival at the institution of the cult have been celebrated under David.

The key Deuteronomistic texts that are in need of consideration include:

1. Deuteronomy 16:1
2. Deuteronomy 26
3. Judges 21:19
4. 1 Samuel 1:3, 7, 20ff.
5. 2 Samuel 6
6. 1 Kings 8

Another thing to consider is that if the Deuteronomistic school were Royalists what was their influence in the development of the Jewish eschatological hope in terms of applying the Royal Psalms which outlined their ideal king and his kingdom to the future king and his kingdom?
