Chapter Summary

As regards length and importance, in the Old Testament, the "kingdom of Yahweh" two fairly divergent views clash. For the activity of the God-King in Israel appears especially in history: the victories that accompanied the conquest of the Promised Land are the effect of the saving action of the Lord King. The texts concerning the Ark are often cited in connection with the problem of the antiquity of the kingdom of Yahweh. According to the well known process in which Jerusalem takes place and the succession of Silo, the transfer of the Ark under David and his testimony in the temple manifested the concern to revive the traditions of amphictyony. The Psalms relate to the transfer of the Ark, and the idea of the ark-throne is quite noticeable. The two conceptions of the Ark, the throne of Yahweh and Alliance receptacle, seem linked from the oldest layers of Jewish traditions.
