LAVIK, Marta Hoyland. The Literary Motif of Cush in the Old Testament. Old testam. essays [online]. 2021, vol.34, n.2, pp.460-473. ISSN 2312-3621.

There are 56 references to Cush in the Old Testament and these occur in all the three main corpuses of the Hebrew Bible namely the Law, the Prophets and the Writings. Traditional historical-critical scholarship has not showed great interest in the Old Testament texts about Cush. However, the Nigerian biblical scholar David Tuesday Adamo has through his many contributions about the Cush texts made the guild observant of what can be labelled an African presence in the Old Testament given that Cush is applied as a literary motif in the Old Testament. Following a presentation of the Cush texts in the Old Testament, this paper examines how the literary motif of Cush functions in the text, taking Isaiah 18 as a representative example.1

Palavras-chave : Cush; Old Testament; Isaiah 18; Adamo; Africa; African.
