Abstract

Expanding on previous work, this chapter shows the close connection between Deut 13 and the Neo-Assyrian treaty tradition. It shows how the “canon-formula” of Deut 13:1 belongs in its context and does not represent a secondary addition, as many scholars have recently claimed. Contrary to what is widely held, Deut 4:2 reworks Deut 13:1, rather than serving as its literary source. The increasing tendency of many scholars to construct a “covenant theology” stratum in the legal corpus, dated to the post-exilic period and regarded as a secondary legalizing development from an assumed non-nomistic, pre-exilic Israelite religion is challenged. The important recent discovery of a display copy of a version of Esarhaddon’s loyalty oath in the temple cella at Tel Tayinat is discussed extensively.
