Abstract :
This paper analyses completion terminology in the Solomon narrative as preserved in four important types of text: the Masoretic text, the Codex Vaticanus, the Antiochian text, and the Codex Alexandrinus. After having divided the completion formulas into three groups, the author analyzes the function of the formulas in Hebrew and Greek texts. Based on this analysis he examines the role of the completion formulas for the structure of the Solomon narrative in the Hebrew and Greek texts. The last part of the paper focuses on the development of this formula in the light of ANE texts and shows the implications of this study for the diachronic analysis of the Solomon narrative.
