Chapter Summary

In 1967, a Dutch expedition discovered in Deir 'Alla at the exit of Jabbok, an Aramaic inscription in poor condition. As it includes various fragments, it is often difficult to reconstruct the original speech, making quite problematic interpretation of the entire document. In the first part of this chapter, the author marks the points on reading the Aramaic text and which remains hypothetical. Secondly, he considers whether the text of Deir 'Alla solves some problems of biblical oracles of Bala'am. The first edition of the Aramaic texts from Deir Alla c is due to Hoftijzer J. and G. van der Kooij. A few vocabulary or phraseology contacts entre oracles and Biblical Aramaic inscription, it is significant to the scope for assessment. Some biblical traditions evolve around sanctuaries.

Keywords: Deir 'Alla; biblical oracles; Bala'am; Biblical Aramaic inscription
