A CONJECTURAL EMENDATION IN PSALM 68,19

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The third colon of Psalm 68,19, literally "And also rebellious ones to dwell Yah God", is incomprehensible. It is proposed here, based on Judg 8,11, that the original text was meaning "Yes, and prisoners from the nomads". This conjectured text accords with the focus on prisoners in the verse's two other cola, with the mention of desert dwellers in the parallel verse 7, and with the geographical setting of the relevant section of the psalm.
