Chapter Summary

This chapter analyses the main texts of the priestly Exodus narrative. God's speech in Exod 6:2-8 is always classified as priestly. Recent research has increasingly interpreted the connection between Gen 17 and Exod 6. Exodus 6:2-8 contains two explicit references to YHWH's promising the gift of the land. The similarity of Exod 6:8 and Ezek is discussed in the chapter. Following the priestly introduction of the quarrel between the pharaoh, Moses, and Aaron in Exod 7:1-7, which presumes and advances the narrative in 6:1-12, a broad consensus exists regarding the extent of the priestly narration preserved in Exod 7-9. The priestly version of the parting of the sea in Exod 14 confirms the examination of Exod 7-9. The analysis of Exod 6:7-9 and 14 demonstrated that these texts belonged to what was originally an autonomous priestly-source.
