Chapter Summary

This chapter examines closely the context of רור in Pss 14.5 and 24.6, particularly in respect of the idea of the entrance liturgy. It then turns to the passages from Genesis and Jeremiah which might shed light on these liturgical contexts, with a view to making some suggestions about conventional rubrics which might have functioned as part of the liturgy in (probably) the post-exilic period. Psalm 14 has always drawn attention, not least for its stark condemnation of 'fools' who deny the existence of God. In Gen 6.9 there is a description of Noah which serves to justify his exemption from the universal destruction about to be brought about by the flood.

Keywords: Genesis; God; Jeremiah; liturgical contexts; Noah; Psalm 14.5; psalm 24.6
