Chapter Summary

In martial law in Deuteronomy 20: 10ff. the application of hrm in fact so far into perspective, when Israel as a once city services will make an offer of surrender first. Only when it denies a peaceful subjection the city should be besieged. Then YHWH gives the city into the hand of Israel, and Israel will kill the men fit for war. So before it comes to destruction, the opponent gets an opportunity to voluntarily surrender. If it is rejected, the ban applies only to the war-bodied men. The breakdown shows that in general the cities against a well-managed siege had no chance. Broken or unsuccessful sieges are in the minority compared with the successful attempts to take a city. The war representations on the Egyptian reliefs follow a certain pattern. The original context of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Deuteronomy 20; laws of war; siege machines; YHWH
