In the research of the last years, the existence of a collection comprising the four prophetic books of Hosea, Amos, Micah and Zephaniah as a precursor of the Book of the Twelve has often been presumed. However, the intention of this collection has been defined inadequately, since the passages assigned to the redactors of this collection differ greatly from each other in their individual content. But compared with the Deuteronomistic History, the intent of this Book of the Four becomes evident. It presents a history of prophecy relying on the history described in the books of Kings but with its own interpretation. Not only cultic, but also social offences led to the divine wrath, and social criteria will determine the future of the people. Thus, the exilic Book of the Four can be understood as a concept opposed to the Deuteronomistic History.
