Locating Judah and Israel's Early Pro-Royal Literature
This chapter examines royal psalms in the Hebrew Bible for possible remnants of 10th or 9th century Judean and Israelite literature. In the process portions of Psalm 2, 21, 45, 89 (89:20-38 [ET 89:19-37]//4QPsx); 72; 110 and 2 Sam 23:1-7 are identified as particularly likely to date from the early pre-exilic period. In addition, the chapter considers the particular problems in locating pre-exilic material in several other royal poems, such as Psalms 18 (//2 Samuel 22), 20 (//Papyrus Amherst 63 12,11-19), 132; and 144.
