The Missing Oath: I Samuel 30,15 Reexamined

Michael Avioz

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper suggests a literary analysis of I Sam 30,15, in which the narrator left unanswered the question whether David made an oath to the Egyptian lad or not. Using the term ellipsis, I try to locate the differing roles of the author and the readers.
