Evidence for an exilic & post-exilic redaction

January 7, 2009

What evidence is there for an exilic & post-exilic redaction in Books I-III? One proof of exilic redaction I would suggest is the presence of Ps. 37 with the continual reference to the land.

vv. 3 Trust in the Lord and do good.
Then you will live safely in the land and prosper.

vv. 9-11 For the wicked will be destroyed,
but those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.
Soon the wicked will disappear.
Though you look for them, they will be gone.
The lowly will possess the land
and will live in peace and prosperity.

vv. 21, 22 The wicked borrow and never repay,
but the godly are generous givers.
Those the Lord blesses will possess the land,
but those he curses will die.

vv. 27 Turn from evil and do good,
and you will live in the land forever.

vv. 29 The godly will possess the land
and will live there forever.

vv.34 Put your hope in the Lord.
Travel steadily along his path.
He will honor you by giving you the land.
You will see the wicked destroyed.
