Contents:
Preface; 1 A Sequence of Festal Psalms; 2 The Psalms of Pilgrimage (Psalms 42, 43, 84); 3 The Priesthood at Dan; 4 The Pre-Festal Lament (Psalms 44, 85); 5 The First Days of the Feast (Psalms 45, 46); 6 The Middle of the Feast (Psalms 47, 48, 87); 7 The Nadir of the Feast (Psalms 49, 88); 8 The Climax of the Feast, and its Transfer South (Psalm 89); 9 From Canaan to Israel; Notes; Bibliography; Index of Passage References; Index of Names.
Summary: In this innovative study, a different approach to the study of the Psalms from that represented by form criticism is attempted. What is determinative here is the context given to the psalms in their positions in the Psalter: that is, the collections in which they are gathered, the order in which they stand, and the technical notes (Maskil, Selah, and the like) in the text. The application of this approach to one group of psalms, the psalms of the sons of Korah (42-49, 84-85, 87-88 + 89), results in the theory, developed with the author's characteristic flair and originality, that the Korah psa.
