Title: Exod 23,20-33 and the ‘War of YHWH’
Author(s): AUSLOOS, Hans
Volume: 80 Issue: 4 Date: 1999
Some crucial elements of the compositional structure of the 'war of YHWH' which can be found in Exod 14, Josh 10, Judg 4 and 1 Sam 7, equally occur in Exod 23,20-33. The differences between the latter text and the former pericopes, however, point into the conclusion that Exod 14, Josh 10, Judg 4 and 1 Sam 7 on the one hand and Exod 23,20-33 on the other are separate witnesses of an earlier tradition about YHWH as warrior.
