Departing from the extra classical methods to studying the psalms--engaging within the decision of Sitz im Leben and Gattungen--this intertextual research addresses the aforementioned matters by means of targeting a gaggle of psalms linked to Israel's exodus culture (105, 106, one hundred thirty five, and 136). via a close comparability of lexical correspondences among the psalms and different biblical texts, including a relative relationship of every psalm, the examine identifies literary assets hired by way of the psalmists.
