WEBER, Beat. Old testam. essays [online]. 2016, vol.29, n.1, pp.195-220. ISSN 2312-3621.

In a preliminary hermeneutic deliberation, the meaning of the Psalter as a book and the importance of perceiving the individual psalms in sequence (lectio continua) is established. The Davidic Psalter furthermore contains a reception vector "back" to the historical narratives in the books of Samuel. In addition to details provided in the psalm headings, the duplicated transmission of the royal Davidic song of thanksgiving, 2 Sam 22 //Ρ s 18, forms an integral part of this reception connection. In addition to studies that have investigated the textual "prelude" of Ρ s 18, this article addresses the "postlude" (Ps 19-150). For this purpose, recurrences of Gattung (royal psalms) and of concepts and motifs (refuge, rescue, theo-phany, etc.) are worked out in view of Ps 18. These are found predominantly in the immediate context (Ps 19-21); in a number of (sapiential) psalms in the first Davidic Psalter; at the end of Books II and III (Ps 71-72; 89); and at the beginning and towards the end of Books IV-V (Ps 91; 94 and especially 144). In reading through the book, one finds a shift in emphasis towards demilitarization, theologizing and an increased stress on piety.

Palabras clave : 2 Samuel 22; Psalm 18; Psalm 144; David; Book of Psalms; Psalter; Canon.
