This paper examines the construction ytm-d / ( hn)-d( followed by a qatal-form in Ps 80,5; Exod 10,3; 16,28, and Hab 1,2. Taking into account the verbal process-type (active vs stative), I show that we find a better explanation than those proposed by the grammars.
In the neo-Babylonian period, ideologically antagonistic literary circles propose various conceptions of the relationship between God and his people. The aim of this article is to examine which of the Psalms of collective laments in Book III could be classified as dissident texts, refuting the mainstream opinion that justifies the actions of God and thus places the blame on the people for the situation of devastation and exile. More specifically, Psalms 74, 80 and 89 are analysed to find out whether they present a theological strand different from the dominant deuteronomistic line of thinking.
