AUFFRET, Pierre. Tel homme est né en elle - Nouvelle étude structurelle du psaume 87. Old testam. essays [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.1, pp. 227-232. ISSN 2312-3621.
On the basis of the proposals by Marc Girard (1994) and himself (2000), the author resumes here the structural study of Ps 87, and that as methodically as possible, that is to say by considering first (if relevant) the internal structure of each unit, then of partial units, and eventually of the whole of the psalm. Between 1-2 and 7, which at the extremes respond to one another, he sees a correspondence between 3-4, 5ab and 6, - 5c being for its part in connection with 1-2. Moreover, he spots a combination in the first unit (1-2) of all the units which follow it.
