AbstractThe article discusses the descriptions of Jehoash’s and Josiah’s restorations of the temple in the Book of Kings. Two Neo-Babylonian legal documents are examined in order to demonstrate how ideological the descriptions of the repair works undertaken by the two kings are. The comparison further shows the cooperation of the royal and temple administrations in Babylonia and Judah in supervising the internal affairs of temples. Epigraphic Judahite documents shed some light on the management of workers in the kingdom. However, in spite of the many cuneiform and epigraphic documents published so far, fundamental elements in the administration of building projects in the First Temple Judah remain practically unknown.
