AUFFRET, Pierre. Selon la grandeur de ton bras: Nouvelle étude structurelle du Psaume 79. Old testam. essays [online]. 2013, vol.26, n.1, pp. 01-13. ISSN 2312-3621.
Based on the proposals of Marc Girard (1994) and himself (1993), the author revisits the structural study of Ps 79, going about as methodically as possible, that is to say, considering first (if applicable) the structure of each unit, then partial sets, and finally the whole psalm. He asserts that there is a concentric arrangement of material around v. 7, but vv. 1-6 and 8-13 respectively also form a parallel. The author concludes by pointing out how the first unit remarkably announces the elements found in the subsequent units.
