Chapter Summary

This chapter outlines the Psalms 73-89 of the Third Book of the Psalter. It discusses details of text, contents, transition markers, verbal repetitions in strophic perspective, quantitative structural aspects and various divisions for Psalms 73-89. The programmatic investigations by Weiss (1972) and Van der Ploeg (1974) have the structure of Psalm 74 as their main subject. In these inquiries they make use of some verbal repetitions in support of their divisions of this poetic text. The demarcation of strophes in Psalm 75 is not problematic. After an oneline introductory praise, explicitly addressed to God and spoken by the community of Israel, there is an uninterrupted series of 2-line strophes. It is generally agreed that Psalm 76 is composed of four 3-line strophes. This strophic division is mainly based on the semantic individuality of the successive strophes and supported by some transition markers.

Keywords: Psalter; quantitative structural aspects; transition markers; verbal repetitions
