Title: Psalm 111
Subtitle: Bauplan und Gedankengang
Author(s): SCORALICK, Ruth
Volume: 78 Issue: 2 Date: 1997
In psalm 111 three different formal principles can be discerned, each employed with consummate artistry. The psalmist develops an acrostic and a concentric structure as well as displaying an interest in numbers. In this way he expresses a desire for completeness. The same purpose underlies his combining of salvation history with wisdom through the medium of the law.
